Article
BACKGROUND: Drawing blood from the fingertips for glucose testing is painful and likely to cause tissue damage over time. Earlobes are an alternative site for glucose measurement. OBJECTIVE: This work aims to validate the earlobe as an alternate test site for blood glucose testing by demonstrating valid and reliable statistically significant differ...

Neuromusculoskeletal models provide a mathematical tool for understanding and simulating human neuromechanics and motor control. The aim of this work is to extend our previously developed models and propose an index finger musculoskeletal dynamic model that serves as a tool in studying and replicating human behaviour. In particular, the focus of th...

Article
Neuromusculoskeletal models provide a mathematical tool for understanding and simulating human motor control and neuromechanics. In this work, we propose a combined computational model for the musculotendon paths and muscle-joint kinematics for the human hand, including all extrinsic and intrinsic muscles. This model is implemented based on the ana...
Conference Paper
As a pilot study, we present 1)a database that includes 30 daily-life table-top tasks, which were selected within the SoftPro project, and 2)a novel autoencoder-based muscle synergy identification method, whose results indicate an association between synergy space dimensionality and task complexity.
Article
A highly accurate human hand kinematics model and identification are proposed. The model includes the five digits and the palm arc based on mapping function between surface landmarks and estimated joint centres of rotation. Model identification was experimentally performed using a motion tracking system. The evaluation of the marker position estima...

Because of the wide use of smartphones in our daily activities, a wide range of mobile applications have been developed to serve as assistive technologies. However, there is a lack of applications in the Arabic language to assist disabled people. The main aim of this paper is to build a simple yet accurate Arabic language application that is capabl...

Abstract Drowsy driving is a major cause of traffic accidents. Eye blinking is considered as important evidence of driver drowsiness. In this paper, a portable and low cost device for monitoring a driver's drowsiness is proposed. The proposed system consists of two main parts that detect eye blinking based on IR sensors mounted on eyewear. Dependin...
Article
A safe and wireless system for infant apnoea monitoring and treatment is proposed. It consists of two separate modules that detect apnoea based on a microcontroller processing and transmitting signals to the remote unit using wireless communication arrangement. Depending on the ECG signal, this system records the infant's heart and respiratory rate...
