Classification of elderly subjects to fallers and non-fallers using a novel set of features extracted from gait frieze pattern

Ziba Gandomkar; Fariba Bahrami

Volume 7, Issue 1 , June 2013, , Pages 21-37

  Changes in gait pattern are early symptoms in many disorders such as balance and control problems resulted in fall among elderlies. This paper aims at proposing a new set of features extracted from Gait Frieze Pattern (GFP) in order to classify seniors to fallers and non-fallers. For indicating the effectiveness ...  Read More

Applying Probabilistic Classification Vector Machines in Self-paced BCI to Enhance Foot Movement Detection

Rahele Mohammadi; Ali Mahloojifar

Volume 7, Issue 1 , June 2013, , Pages 39-55

  A critical issue in designing a self-paced brain computer interface (BCI) system is onset detection of the mental task from the continuous electroencephalogram (EEG) signal to produce a brain switch. This work shows significant improvement in a movement based self-paced BCI by applying a new sparse learning ...  Read More

Optimization of Stimulation Patterns in Paraplegic Walker-Assisted Walking using Functional Electrical Stimulation

Vahab Nekoukar; Abbas Erfanian Omidvar

Volume 4, Issue 4 , June 2010, , Pages 327-336

  One major limitation of walker-supported walking using functional electrical stimulation (FES) in paraplegic subjects is the high energy expenditure and the high upper body effort. Paraplegics should exert high amount of hand force to stabilize the body posture and to compensate lack of the sufficient ...  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
