Pressure ulcers are a common and devastating condition faced by users of power wheelchairs. However, proper use of power wheelchair tilt and recline functions can alleviate pressure and reduce the risk of ulcer occurrence. In this work, we show that when using data from a sensor instrumented power wheelchair, we are able to predict with an average accuracy(More)
Recent progress in the surgical treatment of carcinoma of the esophagus has changed the pessimistic outlook for this malignancy. With reasonably early diagnosis, it is feasible to achieve a resectability rate of 75 to 85 percent, an operative mortality of about 5 percent and a 5 year survival rate of about 30 percent. With careful selection of patients for(More)
Digital airborne cameras play a significant role for aerial Photogrammetry development from analog to full-digital age. Because of the gap between digital sensor performance and Photogrammetry request, digital airborne also becomes the bottleneck of full-digital approach. In this paper, we present a design of twice-imaging airborne camera system with(More)
Common bile duct cyst, or choledochal cyst is known to be an uncommon cause of neonatal jaundice. It is usually associated with distal biliary tract obstruction and presents a clinical picture that is indistinguishable from biliary atresia. We report two cases of neonatal choledochal cyst encountered from 1992 to 1994. The infants were free from perinatal(More)
