Optimum design of a knee orthosis powered by series elastic actuators

Rouhollah Sameri Nedafi; Ali Moazemi Goudarzi; Alireza Fathi

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, , Pages 305-316

  Abstract: The statistical studies indicate that diseases, accidents and wares are the principal causes to increase the number of amputees in the world. These studies also show that the most of mutilation disabilities are related to musculoskeletal. Obesity, sedentary, lack of proper exercise as well ...  Read More

Comparison of Friction Force at Contact Surfaces between the Arch Wire and the Slot of Orthodontic Bracket: a Finite Element Method

Mostafa Lashgari; Farzan Ghalichi; Behnam Mirzakouchaki

Volume 7, Issue 4 , June 2013, , Pages 341-349

  Orthodontic specialists interest in study of tooth movement mechanic, such as the relationship between applied force and the rate of tooth movement in orthodontic treatment. It is because of the complexity and variety of factors that can affect orthodontic treatment. The friction force at the contact ...  Read More

Analysis of Bone Remodeling around Functionally Graded Orthopedic Screws and Comparison with Metal Screws Using Finite Element Method

Behnoud Haghighi; Masoud Tahani; Gholam Reza Rouhi

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2011, , Pages 33-44

  Orthopedic screws are widely used devices for fixation of bone fractures. Progressive loosening of bone fixation screws, induced by stress shielding and subsequent adaptive bone remodeling, results in bone loss around the screw. A set of two-dimensional finite element models including cortical and cancellous ...  Read More

Real-Time Classification of Surface Electromyogram Signal using Correntropy

Mohammad Mehdi Ramezani; Ahmad Reza Sharafat

Volume 4, Issue 2 , June 2010, , Pages 123-134

  In this paper, we propose a novel approach for classification of surface electromyogram (sEMG) signal with a view to controlling myoelectric prosthetic devices. The sEMG signal generated during isometric contraction is modeled by a stochastic process whose probability density function (PDF) is non- Gaussian ...  Read More

Using Synergy to Control the Reaching Movement Neuroprosthesis: Muscle Synergy or Kinematic Synergy

Ali Maleki; Ali Fallah

Volume 2, Issue 2 , June 2008, , Pages 131-140

  Patients with spinal cord injury in C5/C6 levels are capable of controlling the voluntary movements of the shoulder joints, but some muscles involved in the movement of the elbow joint are paralyzed in these patients. By using FES as well as an appropriate stimulation of the paralyzed muscles, the patients ...  Read More

Effects Of Type And Thickness Of Dental Implant Coatings On Maximum Stress At The Interface Of Coating-Implant And Bone-Coating

Khalil Farhangdoust; Ali Banihashem; Ali Ghaneei

Volume -2, Issue 1 , July 2005, , Pages 1-8

  Using ceramic coatings has increased in popularity due to their compatibility with bone, absence of the fibrous layer at the coating-implant interface, and the stronger coating-bone bonding. Among these coatings, hydroxyapatite (HA) and fluoroapatite (FA) are more popular. For the first time in this ...  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
