Estimating the Position of Distal Hole of Intramedullary Nail using Mechanical Modeling and Image Curvature Data

Javad Mortazavi; Farzam Farahmand; Saeed Behzadipour; Ali Yeganeh

Volume 12, Issue 1 , June 2018, , Pages 63-74

  Intramedullary nailing is a common technique for treatment of femoral shaft fractures. Nail deformation after insertion into the bone, makes the distal hole locking a challenging task for the surgeon. The proximally mounted targeting systems for locating the position of the distal hole become ineffective ...  Read More

Transparent Bilateral Control with On-line Identification of Tissue Parameters for Telesurgery Robotic Systems

Mojtaba Sharifi; Saeid Behzadipour; Hasan Salarieh; Farzam Farahmand

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, , Pages 85-98

  In this paper, a transparent bilateral controller is developed for the control of telesurgery systems that have physical interactions with soft tissue. In this control method, the parameters of a viscoelastic model of the soft tissue are estimated during its interaction with the slave robot using an ...  Read More

Design, Analysis and Function Simulation of a Simple and Effective Driving Mechanism for Gait Trainer

Mohammad Salehi Amini; Siavash Kazemirad; Saman Mohammadi; Roya Narimani; Farzam Farahmand

Volume 7, Issue 2 , June 2013, , Pages 121-132

  The purpose of this study was to design, analyze and evaluate an effective low-cost driving mechanism for gait trainer. The crank-rocker mechanism was favored for reproducing the path of foot during gait cycle, considering the type of motion and design parameters such as adjustability for different anthropometries, ...  Read More

Design and Analysis of a Novel Laparoscopic Instrument for Measuring the in Vivo Biomechanical Characteristics of Large Intra-abdominal Organs

Dariush Nazarinasab; Alireza Mirbagheri; Farzam Farahmand; Elnaz Afshari

Volume 7, Issue 4 , June 2013, , Pages 311-319

  During laparoscopy surgery, the surgeon cannot touch the tissues directly by his/her hand. As a result, he is not able to use tactile sensing for evaluating the tissues’ mechanical behavior and diagnosing their normal/pathological conditions. Furthermore in vivo biomechanical characteristics of ...  Read More

Parameters Affecting The Stresses Within Pedicel Screw Systems In A Stabilized Lumbar Spine

Seyed Hamed Hosseini Nasab; Farzam Farahmand; Mohammad Hossein Karegar Novin; Mohsen Karami

Volume -1, Issue 2 , June 2005, , Pages 159-172

  Several linear and nonlinear finite element models of intact and fixed lumbar spine were analyzed. The intact model was developed based on CT images, and following verification, was employed to simulate the spinal fixation procedure using two different commercial pedicle screw systems. The results including ...  Read More
