Hossein Mousavi Hondori, Maryam Khademi, Lucy Dodakian, Steven C Cramer, Cristina Videira Lopes
This paper features a Spatial Augmented Reality system for rehabilitation of hand and arm movement. The table-top home-based system tracks a subject's hand and creates a virtual audio-visual interface for performing rehabilitation-related tasks that involve wrist, elbow, and shoulder movements. It measures range, speed, and smoothness of movements locally and can send the real-time photos and data to the clinic for further assessment. To evaluate the system, it was tested on two normal subjects and proved functional...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to examine the influence of anthropometric data, occupational manual strain, DASH (disability of arm, shoulder and hand) score and range of motion (ROM) on grip strength and key pinch. An additional goal was to develop models that enable the prediction of hand strength using the aforementioned parameters. METHODS: Normative data generated from a healthy working population (n = 750) served as basis for the statistical analysis...

BACKGROUND: Intubation is one of the most important anaesthetic skills. We developed a robotic intubation system (Kepler intubation system, KIS) for oral tracheal intubation. METHODS: In this pilot study, 12 patients were enrolled after approval of the local Ethics board and written informed consent. The KIS consists of four main components: a ThrustMaster T.Flight Hotas X joystick (Guillemot Inc., New York, NY, USA), a JACO robotic arm (Kinova Rehab, Montreal, QC, Canada), a Pentax AWS video laryngoscope (Ambu A/S, Ballerup, Denmark), and a software control system...
