Human hand is easy to be injured. As physical rehabilitation therapy after a hand operation always takes a long time, the curative effect gets worse and the social and financial hardship with physical deterioration can be caused. A CPM machine is a mechanism based on the rehabilitation theory of continuous passive motion (CPM). To improve rehabilitation… (More)
We present a case of a middle-aged woman who was admitted to the hospital for abdominal pain and was found to have multiple nodules on her CT scan. After CT-guided biopsy, we finally diagnosed PBML case. The patient had a very effective response to bilateral oophorectomy and hysterectomy. A brief review of the literature for PBML is also included.
In order to offer a method for the rehabilitation of injured fingers and a means of quantitative detection and evaluation, an exoskeleton based continuous passive motion (CPM) machine is presented in this paper. Corresponding to each finger of human hand, the CPM machine has 4 degrees of freedom (DOF) driven by two DC motors. The joint force and position… (More)
Stroke is very common and always leads to severe hand impairment. Traditional robotic systems have been introduced to assist therapy for a long time and already achieved certain effect. However, with further development of therapy strategies in the last few years, higher request to the rehabilitation robot has been put forward. Thus, we are developing a… (More)
Hyperpolarization-activated currents (Ih) mediated by hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels modulate excitability of myelinated A- and Ah-type visceral ganglion neurons (VGN). Whether alterations in Ih underlie the previously reported reduction of excitability of myelinated Ah-type VGNs following ovariectomy (OVX) has remained… (More)
