Information theory provides a spectrum of nonlinear methods capable of grasping an internal structure of a signal together with an insight into its complex nature. In this work, we discuss the usefulness of the selected entropy techniques for a description of the information carried by the surface electromyography signals during colorectal cancer treatment. The electrical activity of the external anal sphincter can serve as a potential source of knowledge of the actual state of the patient who…

Development of a Neurodegenerative Disease Gait Classification Algorithm Using Multiscale Sample Entropy and Machine Learning Classifiers

This study successfully developed an NDD gait classification based on MSE and machine learning classifiers via gait force (GF) using multiscale sample entropy (MSE) and machinelearning models.

A novel fatigue detection method for rehabilitation training of upper limb exoskeleton robot using multi-information fusion

A fuzzy logic controller with instantaneous heart rate, heart rate variability, and surface electromyography signal was designed to judge fatigue degree, including the fuzzy device, fuzzy rule selector, and defuzzifier, which satisfies the requirements of fatigue judgment.

Non-Monotonic Complexity of Stochastic Model of the Channel Gating Dynamics

The simple model of an ionic current flowing through a single channel in a biological membrane is used to depict the complexity of the corresponding empirical data underlying different internal constraints and thermal fluctuations, and the Shannon entropy predicts the anticipated reaction to the imposed modification of randomness by raising the temperature or strengthening the localization.

Magnetotelluric Signal-Noise Identification and Separation Based on ApEn-MSE and StOMP

The results show that the proposed method can better preserve the low-frequency slow-change information of the magnetotelluric signal compared with just using StOMP, thus avoiding the loss of useful information due to over-processing, while producing a smoother and more continuous apparent resistivity curve.



Multifractal characteristics of external anal sphincter based on sEMG signals.

Multiscale Entropy Analysis of Surface Electromyographic Signals from the Urethral Sphincter as a Prognostic Indicator for Surgical Candidates with Primary Bladder Neck Obstruction

Using MSE analysis for assessing preoperative urethral sphincter EMG signals successfully distinguished between PBNO patients with subsequent successful surgery from those with surgical failure possibly due to subtle functional impairment of the urethrals spharker that cannot be detected by routine urodynamic studies.

The external anal sphincter and the role of surface electromyography

Multichannel surface EMG by means of electrode arrays applied to anal sphincter muscle records identifies individual motor unit action potentials, their place of origin along the circumference, their repetitive firing frequency, and their progression along the muscle fibres at different levels within the anal canal.

Characterization of the motor units of the external anal sphincter in pregnant women with multichannel surface EMG

It is possible to distinguish MUs of the EAS in a minimally invasive way and identify their IZs, which should be used to plan episiotomies and minimize risks of EAS denervation.

Multiscale entropy analysis of biological signals.

The MSE method is applied to the analysis of coding and noncoding DNA sequences and it is found that the latter have higher multiscale entropy, consistent with the emerging view that so-called "junk DNA" sequences contain important biological information.

A new and related complexity measure is developed, sample entropy (SampEn), and a comparison of ApEn and SampEn is compared by using them to analyze sets of random numbers with known probabilistic character, finding SampEn agreed with theory much more closely than ApEn over a broad range of conditions.

Sensitivity and specificity of multichannel surface electromyography in diagnosing fecal incontinence.

Surface electromyography is a good tool to facilitate diagnosing of fecal incontinence and is correctly classified in 97% of cases, according to a constructed classification tree.
