Wege in die Physiologie: “Effekte” – H.K.B.C/ F.A.T, K.-M. Haus

Die H.K.B.C (Hemi-Kinematics-Bio-Control) ist ein neurophysiologisches Therapieverfahren zur Behandlung der Hemiplegie/ Hemiparese. Mittels EMG-Biofeedback werden pathologische, reaktive und/ oder kompensatorische Bewegungsprozesse (kinematics) erfahrbar, kontrollierbar (control) und veränderbar, wodurch der Betroffene die Möglichkeit zur physiologischen Ausführung funktioneller Alltagsaktivitäten = „Betätigung”, erhält.

The H.K.B.C (Hemi-Kinematics-Bio-Control) is a neurophysiological process of our therapy for the treatment of hemiplegia / hemiparesis. Using EMG biofeedback can be pathological, reactive and / or compensatory processes of movement (kinematics) tangible, controllable (control) and modified, giving the client the opportunity to design a functional physiological activities of daily living = “operation” receives.

BIOVID – a biofeedback editing system

This was a midterm project created at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. The BIOVID system uses a series of sensors placed against the jugular and on the wrists and fingertips to sense heart rate and body temperature to generate a unique series of images in real time. The images are spliced in with a live video capture that is tinted red or blue corresponding to the user’s heart pumping. When the user decides he or she has seen enough, they may press the spacebar to exit the program, and a quicktime file of their unique sequence is then emailed to them. The program was made using the Arduino microcontroller and the Processing environment. Go p-comp!

Golf Game by EMG

Muscular rehabilitation and training is a common medical practice that is used in a variety of different situations. One of the most prevalent applications of muscular rehabilitation is in the recovery of traumatic nervous system injuries, such as stroke and physical impact injuries. During an event such as a stroke or impact,neuromuscular pathways can be severed through the destruction of nerve cells. Sometimes, especially in the case of traumatic impact, there is no hope for these pathways to be restored; however, it is common that with a strict rehabilitation training plan the damaged pathways can be restored.

Here a system is proposed that will help solve many of the problems listed above. The entire system will be based on an interactive, biofeedback computer game. The game will include an external circuit consisting of two electromyographic (EMG) sensors and a microcontroller. The sensors will be placed on the muscles of interest on the body, filtered, and sampled by the microcontroller. Some digital signal processing techniques will be used to detect. whether the muscle(s) are active or not. This information will then be sent to the computer where it will be used to control a simple game.

Network rehabilitation

http://boslab.ru

The project “Network NeuroRehabilitation” comprises a complex of neuro-rehabilitation technologies based on the electro-myographic (EMG) biofeedback (BOSLAB system).

Development of the system for Continuous Medical Rehabilitation for Patients with Post-Stroke and Spinal Cord Injury Motor Disorders.
The project is aimed to provide a continuous course of medical rehab of the patients with motor disorders and limited physiological functioning (post-stroke, craniocerebral or spinal cord injury).
The principal aspect, which shoul be ensured during in-home rehabilitation is providing a total safety of a patient and securing sufficient level of professional control of the training process.
Furthemore, it is necessary to provide the possibility of conducting rehabilitation sessions asynchronously, that is to separate in time.

Wiki Qoute :- “Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG[1] from Greek: kardia, meaning heart) is the recording of the electrical activity of the heart. Traditionally this is in the form of a transthoracic (across the thorax or chest) interpretation of the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time, as detected by electrodes attached to the surface of the skin and recorded or displayed by a device external to the body. The recording produced by this noninvasive procedure is termed an electrocardiogram (also ECG or EKG). It is possible to record ECGs invasively using an implantable loop recorder.

An ECG is used to measure the heart’s electrical conduction system. It picks up electrical impulses generated by the polarization and depolarization of cardiac tissue and translates into a waveform. The waveform is then used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats, as well as the size and position of the chambers, the presence of any damage to the heart, and the effects of drugs or devices used to regulate the heart, such as a pacemaker.

Most ECGs are performed for diagnostic or research purposes on human hearts, but may also be performed on animals, usually for diagnosis of heart abnormalities or research.”
