  1. 1. Simulation Of Lower Extremity Muscle Activation During Obstacle Clearance

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Ganesh Balaji Radhakrishnan; [2019]
    Keywords : lower limb; muscle activation; exoskeleton; kinematics;

    Abstract : Exoskeletons can be helpful to patients who suffer from muscular dysfunctions. Recent studies focus on exoskeletons which can perform complex human movements. Further analysis is needed in the area of unusual movements like obstacle clearance to design an assistive device which can deliver effective aid to the intended patients in need. READ MORE

  2. 2. An experimental analysis regarding neural bases of hand synergies during reach-to-grasp movements

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Alexander Warsi; Jessica Ericsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury and diseases causing cortical damage is a global problem. Despite their vast extent, their pathophysiology is poorly understood. It is however known that the loss of motor functions can be regained thanks to adaptive properties of the neuronal system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lower Limb Muscle Synergy During Daily Life Activities : A Way to Convey Intended Motions To a Robotic Assistive Device.

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Teresa Colangelo; [2018]
    Keywords : muscle synergy; lower limb; knee; exoskeleton; EMG;

    Abstract : Powered exoskeletons can assist patients suffering from motor dysfunctions. Recent researches are focused on how to improve the communication system between patient and device. Further research is needed in order to design an EMG based robotic assistive device able to convey intended motions to the patient. READ MORE

  4. 4. Identifying patterns in physiological parameters of expert and novice marksmen in simulation environment related to performance outcomes

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Avdelningen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Johanna Karlsson; [2017]
    Keywords : Electroencephalography EEG ; Electroocculography EOG ; Electrocardiography ECG ; Electromyography EMG ; impedance pneumography; target shooting; marksmen; accelerate learning;

    Abstract : The goal of this thesis is to investigate if it is possible to use measurements of physiological parameters to accelerate learning of target shooting for novice marksmen in Saab’s Ground combat indoor trainer (GC-IDT). This was done through a literature study that identified brain activity, eye movements, heart activity, muscle activity and breathing as related to shooting technique. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exoskeleton arm : How to construct a smart support structure for an arm

    University essay from KTH/Mekatronik; KTH/Mekatronik

    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to find an optimal way to construct and control a product that could help those who suffer from muscle weakness or a muscle sickness. The device was made out of two major parts (upper arm and lower arm) which were connected through a motorized joint. READ MORE
