How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Upper limb spasticity (ULS) is a common pathophysiological changes manifest by a structural damage towards the central nervous system (CNS) that includes brain and spinal cord. The current clinical practice of spasticity assessment utilizes Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) as a subjective tool to measure the severity of spasticity. Lack of objective v...
Healthcare providers in the field of physical and rehabilitation medicine play a vital role to help patients suffering spasticity readapting themselves to their normal daily activities. Mathematical modeling of spasticity has the potential to avoid the issue of variability in the assessment of spasticity using the Modified Ashworth scale (MAS). In...
Providing optimal rehabilitation services to the broad public is one of the greatest challenges in the healthcare sector due to the shortage of rehabilitation physicians and facilities. Recent advances in digitalization and sophisticated data analytics offers new innovative ways in delivering rehabilitation services to enhance the quality of life o...
Smart Health means innovation of the health sector through digitization. This leads to many possibilities regarding to an effective home-based, self-managed physical rehabilitation. With an innovative Product-Service-System (PSS), patients will have a better access, availability, and affordability of physical rehabilitation. In this contribution we...
The ageing population (people older than 60 years old) is expected to constitute 21.8% of global population by year 2050. When human ages, bodily function including locomotors will deteriorate. Besides, there are hundreds of thousands of victims who suffer from multiple health conditions worldwide that leads to gait impairment. A promising solution...
Mathematical modelling, control and optimisation of a lower limb exoskeleton to be used as assistive device for victims or patients with gait impairment.
