We present a new approach to robot design, using the Unity development environment as the primary authoring tool for a functional virtual robot. We also discuss the development of a collection of design assets in the form of Unity packages which we have found to greatly improve the workflow and accessibility of robot design for computer games and robotic(More)
OBJECTIVE Achieving patient recruitment goals are critical for the successful completion of a clinical trial. We designed and developed a web-based dashboard for assisting in the management of clinical trial screening and enrollment. MATERIALS AND METHODS We use the dashboard to assist in the management of two observational studies of community-acquired(More)
Instruction of neuroanatomy depends on graphical representation and extended self-study. As a consequence, computer-based learning environments that incorporate interactive graphics should facilitate instruction in this area. The present study evaluated such a system in the undergraduate neuroscience classroom. The system used the method of adaptive(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) are believed to have an exaggerated inflammatory response to bacterial infection. Therapies aiming to modulate the inflammatory response have been largely unsuccessful, perhaps reflecting that CAP is a heterogeneous disorder that cannot be modulated by a single anti-inflammatory approach.(More)
We evaluated the utility and usability of a spray and a wipe-based cleaner/disinfectant in a behavioral health setting where health care providers institute cleaning and disinfection procedures. The spray-based version resulted in significantly lower adenosine triphosphate readings after use compared with the wipe version. Staff surveys indicated that users(More)
Background Many biological disciplines use data visualization alongside computational methods to explore large-scale biomedical data. Visualization often provides insight into patterns in the data that are not available in the numerical data and statistics [1]. The development of new visualization tools requires the use of sophisticated software and(More)
Missing data arise in clinical research datasets for reasons ranging from incomplete electronic health records to incorrect trial data collection. This has an adverse effect on analysis performed with the data, but it can also affect the management of a clinical trial itself. We propose two graphical visualization schemes to aid in managing the completeness(More)
BACKGROUND Quality improvement is central to Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) programs. Challenges may occur when applying quality improvement methodologies like process control charts, often due to the limited exposure of typical IPs. Because of this, our team created an open-source database with a process control chart generator for IPC programs.(More)
BACKGROUND During 2016, approximately 140,000 individuals entered the United States as part of the federal government refugee resettlement program and established themselves in communities in virtually every state. No national database regarding refugee health currently exists; therefore, little is known about existing infectious diseases, conditions, and(More)
