  1. 1. Upper limb reduction deficiencies in Swedish children classification, prevalence and function with myoelectric prostheses

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Författare :Liselotte M. N. Hermansson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin; Medicine; children; upper limb; deficiency; register validation; scoliosis; arm prosthesis; measurement; occupational therapy; psychopathology; depression; Children; upper limb; deficiency; register validation; scoliosis; arm prosthesis; measurement; occupational therapy; psychopathology; depression;

    Sammanfattning : Upper limb reduction deficiency (ULRD) is a rare condition that has been known ever since the 6th century B.C. This is a lifelong deficiency which in an afflicted child can lead to practical limitations, social restrictions and physical problems. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control : Psychometric evidence and comparison with upper limb prosthetic outcome measures

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Författare :Helen Lindner; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; capacity; comparison; icf; myoelectric control; psychometric evidence; upper limb prosthesis;

    Sammanfattning : Evaluation of outcomes using validated prosthetic outcome measures (OMs) is a current priority in upper limb (UL) prosthetics, and OMs with psychometric evidence toward UL prosthesis users are thus necessary. The “Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control” (ACMC) is a tool that assesses the ability to control a myoelectric prosthetic hand. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Social Construction of Technical Aids - Personal Meaning and Interactional Effects of Disability and Assistive Devices in Everyday Life

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Health Sciences, Lund University

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns the role of disability and assistive devices in everyday life among persons with, for instance, impairments related to mobility (e.g. wheelchair users) and bodily shape and configuration (e.g. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The electromyographic signal used for control of upper extremity prostheses and for quantification of motor blockade during epidural anaesthesia

    Detta är en avhandling från Vimmerby : VTT Grafiska

    Författare :Lennart Philipson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1987]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : A contribution of biomedical research engineering has been the development of detection and analysis methods for the electromyographic (EMG) signal and its application to health care problems. The present thesis describes the use of EMG signals for two such applications: Aid in the control of multifunctional upper limb prostheses and for quantification of motor blockade during epidural anaesthesia.

  5. 5. Embedded Controller for Artificial Limbs

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Enzo Mastinu; [2017]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Prosthetic Controller; Pattern Recognition; Osseointegrated Human-Machine Gateway OHMG ; Electromyography EMG ; Osseointegration.; Sensory Feedback;

    Sammanfattning : Promising developments are currently ongoing worldwide in the field of neuroprosthetics and artificial limb control. It is now possible to chronically connect a robotic limb to bone, nerves and muscles of a human being, and use the signals sourced from these connections to enable movements in the artificial limb.
