Structural Optimization of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Stents

Sara Barati; Nasser Fatouraee; Malikeh Nabaei

Volume 15, Issue 4 , March 2022, , Pages 355-366

  Transcatheter aortic valves have become the standard procedure for high-risk patients with severe aortic valve stenosis. This minimally invasive procedure can expand to a wider range of patients with a lower risk of surgery. The complications after the implantation and the structural malfunction of these ...  Read More

An Investigation of Dynamic Behavior of a Pointed-Mass Convex-Sole Biped Walker with and without a Passive Controller

Fatemeh Ghafouri; Mohammad Hadi Honarvar; Mohammad Mahdi Jalili

Volume 14, Issue 1 , May 2020, , Pages 1-11

  Minimizing the energy expenditure as well as structure's size and weight is very important in biped walking robots. To achieve this target, a passive controller, which is a combination of spring and linear damper, is added to a biped walker. The important specification of the studied walker is that it ...  Read More

Optimization of Continuous Wavelet Coefficients for Neural Spike Sorting

Amir Soleymankhani; Vahid Shalchyan

Volume 12, Issue 2 , September 2018, , Pages 85-96

  The extracellular recording from the brain's single neurons is known as a popular method in neuroscience and neuro-rehabilitation engineering. These recordings include the activity of all neurons around the electrode, for better use of which, spike sorting methods should be utilized to obtain the activity ...  Read More
