Investigation of Mechanical Properties of Fibrous Sol Gel Derived Bioglass/Calcium Phosphate Cement Composite

Nader Nezafati; Fathollah Moztarzadeh; Saeed Hesaraki; Nasim Nosoudi

Volume 2, Issue 4 , June 2008, Pages 277-283

  Calcium phosphate cements are among the formable calcium phosphate cements which are widely used for reconstruction of hard tissue injuries. Unfortunately, due to low mechanical strength, the application of such materials is only limited to non-load bearing like skull. We have investigated some mechanical ...  Read More

Numerical Analysis of Fully Blocked Human Common Carotid Artery Resulted From Arterial Thromboembolism Using a Contact Finite Element Model

Bahman Vahidi; Nasser Fatouraee

Volume 2, Issue 4 , June 2008, Pages 285-296

  Arterial embolism is one of the major killers of the people who have heart diseases. In cerebral arteries, the danger of embolism is that the ruptured particles are carried into the brain, provoking neurological symptoms or a stroke. In this research, for the first time, we have presented a numerical ...  Read More

Detection of Heart Frequencies Using UWB Sgnals

Mehran Baboli; Seyed Ali Ghorashi; Namdar Saniei; Alireza Ahmadian

Volume 2, Issue 4 , June 2008, Pages 297-303

  Ultra Wide Band (UWB) signals are widely used in medical applications. In this paper, we developed a novel non-contact monitoring system to measure the heart rates of patients using UWB signals. The work is performed in two stages. First, a simulated UWB system including a model for human body is developed, ...  Read More

Inspiratory and Expiratory Flow Measurement in Hot-Wire Spirometer

Mohammad Ali Ardakani; Vahid Reza Nafisi

Volume 2, Issue 4 , June 2008, Pages 325-333

  Hot-wire anemometry (HWA) is a suitable method for pulmonary research and routine tests. This anemometry method has high frequency response, calibration stability, low pressure drop and desired precision over whole clinical range of human respiration. Nevertheless, flow direction detection in inspiratory ...  Read More

An Adaptive Fuzzy Control with Hierarchical Structure for Controlling the Knee-joint angle by using Functional Electrical Stimulation

Hamid Reza Kobravi; Abbas Erfanian Omidvar

Volume 2, Issue 4 , June 2008, Pages 335-349

  In this paper an adaptive robust fuzzy controller based on sliding mode control (SMC) approach is proposed to control the knee joint position using quadriceps electrical stimulation and it has been tested on three subjects. The proposed method is based on SMC. The main advantage of SMC derives from the ...  Read More

Design and Manufacture of Peritoneal Dialysis Unit

Nasrin Ghazanshahi

Volume 2, Issue 4 , June 2008, Pages 351-356

  Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) units treat renal failure, partially replacing kidney function by removing metabolic wastes and fluid through selective diffusion and osmosis across the peritoneum. A prototype of PD unit is designed and made for the first time in IROST. Our unit features are control of filling ...  Read More
