Prolonged bed rest has significant negative impacts on the human body, particularly on the cardiovascular system. To overcome adverse effects and enhance functional recovery in bedridden patients, the goal is to mobilize patients as early as possible while controlling and stabilizing their cardiovascular system. In this paper, we used a robotic tilt table that allows early mobilization by modulating body inclination and automated leg movement to control the cardiovascular variables heart rate… Expand
Modeling the effect of tilting, passive leg exercise, and functional electrical stimulation on the human cardiovascular system
TLDR
A subject-specific multi-input multi-output (MIMO) black-box model describing the relationship between the inputs and outputs is investigated, showing that only the HR transfer functions to inclination input can explain the variance in the data to a reasonable extent. Expand
Distinctive Steady-State Heart Rate and Blood Pressure Responses to Passive Robotic Leg Exercise during Head-Up Tilt: A Pilot Study in Neurological Patients
TLDR
Evidence is provided that PE can increase steady-state values of sBP and dBP in neurological patients during head-up tilt and it is found that changing the PE speed does not influence the steady- state cardiovascular response. Expand
Distinctive Steady-State Heart Rate and Blood Pressure Responses to Passive Robotic Leg Exercise and Functional Electrical Stimulation during Head-Up Tilt
TLDR
It is concluded that orthostatic hypotension cannot be prevented by PE alone, but that the preventive effect depends on the verticalization angle of the robot-assisted tilt table, where FES is not an important contributing factor. Expand
Quantitative analysis of externally-induced patterns and natural oscillations in the human cardiovascular response: Implications for development of a biofeedback system
TLDR
It is concluded that it is feasible to utilize body inclination for the development of a biofeedback system to control either heart rate or diastolic blood pressure, but such a system where only two of the three relevant cardiovascular variables can be controlled, and these not simultaneously, would have limited clinical value.

Controlled infusion of intravenous cardiac drugs using global optimization
TLDR
The controller design was efficient and can be further improved by designing switching-based controllers that are efficient during normal and abnormal conditions and compared using time domain analysis. Expand

TLDR
FES combined with passive stepping movements may be an effective modality to increase circulating blood volume and thereby tolerance to postural hypotension in healthy subjects. Expand
Nonlinear Control Techniques for the Heart Rate Regulation in Treadmill Exercises
TLDR
This letter generalizes to the nonlinear framework the classical proportional-integral control design for linear models of heart rate response during treadmill exercises and demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed approach in typical training exercises involving warm up/holding/cool down phases.

The acute and long-term responses to changes in vertical posture in normal and tetraplegie subjects are reviewed, and physiological mechanisms causing orthostatic hypotension in acute cervical spinal cord injured patients are discussed. Expand
Power spectrum analysis of heart rate variability to assess the changes in sympathovagal balance during graded orthostatic tilt.

Spectral analysis of HRV, using nu or LF-to-HF ratio, appears to be capable of providing a noninvasive quantitative evaluation of graded changes in the state of the sympathovagal balance. Expand
Cardiovascular dynamics in healthy subjects with differing heart rate responses to tilt.
TLDR
Higher HR with lower AP during HUT is consistent with normal baroreflex mechanisms of integration, and although interindividual variability appears to be a fundamental part of cardiovascular regulation, the mechanisms of these differences and the sex discrepancy requires further investigation.

[Short-term variability of blood pressure].
TLDR
If available data unequivocally indicate that the analysis of variability is a useful tool, the interpretation of those data in clinical trials is not always optimal because there is lot of interaction between BP, HR and other biological signals, and furthermore the use of laboratory data introduces problems to predict what happens on daily life ambulatory conditions.
