Article: Fuzzy approach for determination the optimum therapeutic parameters in neuromuscular stimulation systems.Mashhour M Bani Amer, Lina Al-Ebbini[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This paper presents a fuzzy system for determination the optimum therapeutic parameters (frequency, amplitude and session duration) in neuromuscular stimulation systems. The developed approach has many clinical benefits and features. These include: capability to determine and adjust the therapeutic parameters online during any treatment session, reduction of time and number of sessions needed to overcome the neuromuscular disorders, preventing patient from fatigue or pain that may occur during or after treatment, considering differences between various patients and improving the efficiency of the available neuromuscular stimulation systems.Journal of Medical Systems 08/2010; 34(4):435-43. · 1.13 Impact Factor
Conference Proceeding: BotDigger: A Fuzzy Inference System for Botnet DetectionB. Al-Duwairi, L. Al-Ebbini[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This paper proposes BotDigger, a fuzzy logic-based botnet detection system. In this system, we derive a set of logical rules based on a well known botnet characteristics. Utilizing these rules, an adaptive logic algorithm will be applied on network traffic traces searching for botnet footprints and associating a trust level for each host present in the sampled data. Future work will focus on evaluating the proposed approach using real traffic traces.Internet Monitoring and Protection (ICIMP), 2010 Fifth International Conference on; 06/2010

ABSTRACT: This paper presents a new design for an electrotherapeutic system, characterized by a robust graphical user interface (GUI) design and patient feedback approach in order to guide the electrical stimulation process. This system is based on stimulating the patient by an electric current and analysing the signals generated from his/her body in response to the stimulation effect. The main advantage of this system over the conventional designs is that it is capable of providing self-adjustment of the stimulation parameters during the treatment session to achieve optimal stimulation results that increase the treatment efficiency and reduce the time needed to overcome the patients' impairments. Furthermore, it prevents any harm, pain or fatigue due to online measuring of the fatigue parameters during the treatment session. It is also capable of generating various shapes of stimulation pulses to treat patients with different impairments, and it has a friendly GUI that greatly simplifies patient data management and views the stimulus pulses with their controllable parameters.Journal of Medical Engineering & Technology 05/2009; 33(5):394-402.
Article: Design of a user-friendly LabVIEW-based toolbox for real-time monitoring and diagnosis of vital signals[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This paper introduces a powerful LabVIEW-based toolbox for monitoring, diagnosis and management of vital biosignals [electrocardiogram (ECG) and electromyogram (EMG)]. The main features of this software present in user-friendly graphical user interface, the patient's data management, real-time monitoring of heart and muscles activities, reviewing patient's progress through variety of charts, diagnosis of heart and muscles disorders and data transmission to remote clinician. The experimental validation of this toolbox showed that it has good performance and demonstrated a superior assurance quality in optimising clinical decisions based on real-time analysis of patient's vital signals.International Journal of Medical Engineering and Informatics 01/2010; 2(3):307-318.
Article: New design for the separation of microorganisms using microfluidic deterministic lateral displacement[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This paper presents a new design of microfluidic device for the separation of soft microorganisms using the deterministic lateral displacement principle. The novelty of the proposed design is based on creating new post shape that should address the challenges posed using the conventional circular post arrays. Based on experimental observations of trypanosome particles, circular posts have negative effects on the separation process of deformable and non-spherical cells. These effects reside in either shifting soft cells toward random streamlines further down the array or clogging the device. Airfoil and diamond post shapes have been proposed and compared against the circular posts. The flow around these posts has been simulated and analyzed numerically based on computational fluid dynamic (CFD). The results show that airfoil post shape has the potential to overcome complications when working with soft biological samples, namely the cells that are not rigid and not spherical. Microfluidic systems based on airfoil obstacles could easily be manufactured for clinical laboratory and biomedical applications providing a good promise in nano/micro-separation field.Robotics and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing.
