*  Assistive Technology Blog: Surgery Helps Paralysis Patients Walk Again
... Thursday, February 28, 2013. Surgery Helps Paralysis Patients Walk Again. Dr. Justin Brown, a neurosurgeon in San Diego, is helping patients suffering from paralysis walk again. The surgery that Dr. Brown performed on Rick is called a selective peripheral neurotomy and is done under a microscope. Essentially, this surgery trims the troublesome nerve branch by up to 80 percent, thus reducing the amount of "noise" being sent back to the spinal cord. The noise is what causes the spasticity. Rehabilitation can begin 72 hours after the procedure. Rick was walking without a walker two weeks after the procedure and even finished a 1 mile race without any assistance. Brown's patients are saying about their experiences. Dr. Brown also explains the surgery in great technical detail.

... rk side. Document Detail. Injury risk compensation in children with disabilities: could assistive technology devices have a dark side. MedLine Citation:. PURPOSE: This review article investigates the role of assistive technology AT devices and other contextual aspects as unintentional injury risk factors in children with disabilities. METHOD: A literature review was conducted to identify and review empirical studies that examined the role of AT devices, protective equipment PE, and other consumer products in the risk-taking behaviors of children and their parents. RESULTS: Nine original empirical studies and one systematic review examining changes in the risk-taking behaviors or injury levels associated with children's PE and other products were identified and critically reviewed. Since evidence of changes in the risk tolerance of children and their parents after the introduction of PE and other products for children exists, it is conceivable under certain conditions that AT devices could interact with ot...

Abstract Assistive Technology: Intuitive, High Resolution Tactile Displays for the Visually Impaired æXin Xie and Carol Livermore æTactile displays can offer an alternative means of perceiving information for people who are visually impaired. Traditional navigational tools e.g. canes or assistance animals are valuable aids to mobility and avoiding obstacles, but there remains a pressing need for technologies that enable the user to acquire graphical information and situational alerts or to navigate in unstructured environments. State of the art tactile displays lack the necessary combination of high resolution and high refresh rate to enable these applications. To address this gap we are creating compact, rapidly-refreshable tactile displays that provide information in an intuitive format as part of a broader system under collaborative deve...

Christopher has Cerebral Palsy, which essentially makes it impossible for him to use a traditional computer setup. To operate his computer, he presses a switch on the back of his chair with his head, which in turn is connected to a Discover Switch, a device that gives full keyboard mouse functionalities to people with severe motor impairment. Watch the following videos to see Christopher's amazing work. He explains his setup in the first video. After this video became a huge success on youtube, Christopher decided to produce more videos that would show him interacting with technology to produce videos, do web design, and interact with other people online.

Studies about Assistive Technology have emphasized the need to integrate resources, services and strategies for inclusion and special education to foster the learning process and skill development of students with disabilities. The literature describes that the first step towards implementing assistive technology in schools should enable professionals to understand the situation involving the student in order to expand his or her participation in the teaching and learning process. This study aimed to identify the need for assistive technology services, resources and strategies for students with cerebral palsy in school. Two children with cerebral palsy and their teachers were selected. The data collection phase included three successive procedures: interviews with teachers, completing the identification protocol of the school routine and participant observation cond...

(1/212) The effect of walking aids on exercise capacity and oxygenation in elderly patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

BACKGROUND: high walking frames may improve exercise capacity in young patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We have assessed the effect of Zimmer, rollator and gutter frames on 6-min walking distance and on arterial oxygenation during exercise in elderly patients with COPD. METHODS: 27 out-patients (15 men) aged 70-82 (mean 75) years were recruited. Exclusions comprised: COPD exacerbation or oral steroid use within 6 weeks, confusional state, participation in a pulmonary rehabilitation programme and exercise limitation by other diseases. Subjects completed 6-min walk tests unaided and with the three frames on four separate days in random order 30 min after nebulized salbutamol (5 mg) and ipratropium (0.5 mg) and were accompanied by an investigator blinded to results of all other walk tests undertaken. Oxygen saturation (SaO2) was monitored by finger probe during exercise. Grouped t-tests were used to compare distances and reductions in SaO2. RESULTS: Unaided, the mean (SEM) 6-min walk distance was 210 (16) m and fall in oxygen saturation was 6.0 (1.1)%. Use of a rollator frame did not significantly affect either of these values. Using the Zimmer frame reduced the mean distance to 165 (13) m (t=5.2, P < 0.001 vs unaided walk) with an SaO2 fall similar to that recorded during the unaided walk. Using the gutter frame increased the mean distance to 234 (150) m (t=3. 1, P=0.004 vs unaided walk) and reduced the fall in SaO2 to 3.7 (0.8)% (t=2.3, P=0.03 vs unaided walk). CONCLUSIONS: gutter frames improve exercise capacity and SaO2 during exercise in elderly COPD patients who remain symptomatic on optimal therapy, whereas unwheeled Zimmer frames have a deleterious effect in such patients.  (+info)

(2/212) Comparison of two self-help smoking cessation booklets.

OBJECTIVE: To compare two self-help smoking cessation booklets distributed to callers to a Quitline telephone service in Queensland (Australia). DESIGN: Callers were randomised to receive either a structured 14-day quit programme (Time to quit) or another booklet and described four broad stages of quitting (Can quit). Approximately one month later, these callers were interviewed by telephone. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Self-reported smoking status at one month and recent quit attempts together with process measures. RESULTS: Altogether, 521 callers (78.3%) were interviewed. They were heavier smokers when compared with all Queensland smokers: on average they had smoked for more than 15 years, smoked nearly 25 cigarettes per day, and almost two-thirds had attempted to quit smoking in the past year. In each group, significant proportions either did not begin to use the booklet (50.5-56.0%), or did not complete its use (77.4-82.3%). There were no differences in the self-reported quit rates at one month (17.0% vs 16.1%; p = 0.93). In an ordinal regression modelling procedure involving age, sex, number of recent quit attempts, number of cigarettes smoked per day, smoking status of partner, number of five closest friends who smoke, education, and booklet received, only the number of cigarettes smoked per day was significantly related to smoking status at one month. CONCLUSIONS: Callers to telephone Quit-line services are typically heavier smokers than the general smoking population, and simple strategies, such as self-help booklets, appear to achieve relatively high success. Nevertheless, there is potential to improve the effectiveness of these materials by making a range of materials available and encouraging callers to make a serious attempt to quit smoking.  (+info)

(3/212) How well do we care for patients with end stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)? A comparison of palliative care and quality of life in COPD and lung cancer.

BACKGROUND: Patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have a poor quality of life and limited life expectancy. This study examined whether these patients were relatively disadvantaged in terms of medical and social care compared with a group with inoperable lung cancer. METHODS: An open two group comparison was made of 50 patients with severe COPD (forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV(1)) <0.75 l and at least one admission for hypercapnic respiratory failure) and 50 patients with unresectable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A multi-method design was used involving standardised quality of life tools, semi-structured interviews, and review of documentation. RESULTS: The patients with COPD had significantly worse activities of daily living and physical, social, and emotional functioning than the patients with NSCLC (p<0.05). The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) scores suggested that 90% of patients with COPD suffered clinically relevant anxiety or depression compared with 52% of patients with NSCLC. Patients were generally satisfied with the medical care received, but only 4% in each group were formally assessed or treated for mental health problems. With regard to social support, the main difference between the groups was that, while 30% of patients with NSCLC received help from specialist palliative care services, none of the patients with COPD had access to a similar system of specialist care. Finally, patients in both groups reported a lack of information from professionals regarding diagnosis, prognosis and social support, although patients' information needs were disparate and often conflicting. CONCLUSION: This study suggests that patients with end stage COPD have significantly impaired quality of life and emotional well being which may not be as well met as those of patients with lung cancer, nor do they receive holistic care appropriate to their needs.  (+info)

(4/212) HFs/ergonomics of assistive technology.

An assistive device is designed to accommodate the special needs of disability that can help people with physical, mental or cognitive challenges go through their day-to-day activities with less difficulty. An assistive device usually provide alternatives to functional limitations imposed by the client's disorder, and thereby minimising rehabilitation costs. It is therefore important to know about how assistive technology will function in all the possible aspects of such disabilities and impairements. When designing a technical device, particularly in conjunction with the target user group, ergonomic issues are therefore important to find out the extent to which an assistive device is convenient or not, and to check the quality performance of assistive technology. Since the question of the match or mismatch of an assistive device and a disabled person requires much attention, it is therefore suggested that paying attention on how an assistive device be ergonomically designed and developed is important. Ergonomic applications are to be applied for increasing motivation of prospective customers through innovative performance of AT. The authors believe that there are opportunities in ergonomic applications to manufacture an assistive device as unique, cost saving, and allows less exertation and reduces energy consumption when it is used. Hence this paper highlights human factors and/or ergonomics consideration in the process of design and development of assistive devices synchronising with gerontechnological research and development aiming to emphasise user's requirement.  (+info)

(5/212) Non discrimination on the basis of disability in air travel. Final rule.

The Department of Transportation (DOT or Department) is amending its rules implementing the Air Carrier Access Act of 1986 (ACAA) and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to require airports and air carriers to provide boarding assistance to individuals with disabilities by using ramps, mechanical lifts, or other suitable devices where level-entry boarding by loading bridge or mobile lounge is not available on any aircraft with a seating capacity of 31 or more passengers. This final rule parallels the 1996 final rule for aircraft with a seating capacity of 19 through 30 passengers  (+info)

(6/212) Effects of a standing aid on loads on low back and legs during dishwashing.

In order to prevent low back pain during dishwashing, we developed a standing aid for supporting the forward bending posture, and then evaluated the effects of the standing aid on decreasing load on the low back and legs. Eight female volunteers were asked to wash plates for 60 minutes in each of three working postures: (a) without the standing aid, (b) with the standing aid under the thighs, and (c) with the standing aid under the shins. The following were measured: electromyogram (EMG), electrocardiogram (ECG), the force applied to the standing aid, the ground reaction force, the bending angle of the trunk, the bending angle of the knee, and local discomfort in body regions. While using the standing aid under the shins, the muscle load decreased in the low back and legs. While using the standing aid under the thighs, the muscle loads decreased in the low back but increased in the legs. It was suggested that the standing aid under the shins was more effective in decreasing the load on the low back and legs than the standing aid under the thighs.  (+info)

(7/212) Individually fitted sports shoes for overuse injuries among newspaper carriers.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of new, individually fitted sports shoes against overuse injuries to the lower limb among newspaper carriers. METHODS: Patients (N = 176) with lower-limb overuse injuries were randomly assigned to use new, individually adjusted footwear with good shock absorbing properties (test group = 86) or the subjects' own, used footwear (control group = 90). The main outcome measurements were lower-limb pain intensity during walking, as rated on a visual analogue scale (0-100), number of painful days, subjective assessment of global improvement, foot fatigue, number of hyperkeratotic skin lesions and diagnosed overuse injuries, and costs of foot care as compared between the treatment groups. RESULTS: At the 6-month follow-up there was a difference in favor of the test group with respect to lower-limb pain intensity and number of painful days, when compared with the control group. At 1 year, 53% and 33% of the test and control groups, respectively, thought they were better than at the time of the baseline examination (number needed to treat being 5 between the test and control groups). The test subjects had less foot fatigue and fewer hyperkeratotic skin lesions. There was no difference in the number of diagnosed overuse injuries between the groups. During the year of follow-up, the all-inclusive mean costs of foot care were USD 70 and USD 158 in the test and control groups, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Individually adjusted shock-absorbing shoes offer slight health benefits for lower-limb overuse injuries. Proper shoes may decrease the need to use health care resources.  (+info)

(8/212) The effects of a contoured foam seat on postural alignment and upper-extremity function in infants with neuromotor impairments.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Physical therapists and occupational therapists frequently use adaptive seating devices to improve stability in sitting for children with neuromotor impairments. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a contoured foam seat (CFS) on postural alignment and on the ability of infants with neuromotor impairments to engage with toys. Parental perceptions regarding the use and effects of the CFS also were assessed via semistructured interviews. SUBJECTS: Subjects were 4 infants, ages 9 to 18 months, who were unable to sit independently. METHOD: A time-series, alternating-treatments design was used, with data collected under 3 conditions: (1) a regular highchair, (2) a regular highchair with a thin foam liner, and (3) a CFS used as an insert in a regular highchair. The primary dependent measures were postural alignment and engagement with toys. Engagement with toys was defined as percentage of intervals with 2 hands on a toy and percentage of intervals with no hands on a highchair tray and 1 or 2 hands on a toy. RESULTS: Results showed a sustained effect of the CFS on improving postural alignment for all subjects. Effects of the CFS on increasing the number of intervals of bimanual play were not demonstrated for any subjects, although some improvement in the infant's ability to free the arms from support was observed for 2 subjects. Mothers reported acceptability of the CFS for everyday use and described benefits for themselves and their infants. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: The results support the use of a CFS for improving postural alignment. Future research on adaptive seating should focus on interventions and outcomes that help children participate in functional activities relevant to them and their families.  (+info)


What kind of control devices are implimented on fermentation tank?


In large scale brewing say like anhauser busch what kind of control devices are used on the fermentation tanks to ensure the proper conditions to make the most desirable yield.

If you would like you can answer this sin beer, say like any bioengineering fermentation process.
----------

Industrial fermentation involves upstream and downstream processes. Upstream processes include selection of a microbial strain characterized by the ability to synthesize a specific product having the desired commercial value. This strain then is subjected to improvement protocols to maximize the ability of the strain to synthesize economical amounts of the product. Included in the upstream phase is the fermentation process itself which usually is carried out in large tanks known as fermenters or bioreactors. In addition to mechanical parts which provide proper conditions inside the tank such as aeration, cooling, agitation, etc., the tank is usually also equipped with complex sets of monitors and control devices in order to run the microbial growth and product synthesis under optimized conditions. The processing of the fermentation reactions inside the fermenter can be done using many modifications of engineering technologies. One of the most commonly used fermenter types is the stirred-tank fermenter which utilizes mechanical agitation principles, mainly using radial-flow impellers, during the fermentation process. 


Downstream processing, the various stages that follow the fermentation process, involves suitable techniques and methods for recovery, purification, and characterization of the desired fermentation product. A vast array of methods for downstream processing, such as centrifugation, filtration, and chromatography, may be applied. These methods vary according to the chemical and physical nature, as well as the desired grade, of the final product. 


This animation occurs in four sections. The first section shows the various parts of a stirred-tank fermenter. The second section shows the various monitors and control units routinely plugged into the fermenter and used for rigorously adjusting fermentation conditions such as temperature, pH, aeration, and foam formation. The third section shows the fermentation process starting with in-place sterilization of the tank and going to the end of the production phase. Finally, the fourth section shows examples of some of the methods used for biomass (cells) separation from fermentation medium for recovery of the product from the fermenter.  The product is then subjected to further purification and characterization processes. 


This original animation (made with Macromedia Flash 5) is meant to simplify and exemplify some of the complex concepts and aspects of this important biotechnological process which usually utilizes the expertise and efforts of microbiologists, scientists, and engineers from different disciplines. It is well suited for classroom education for students at different levels. It may also be  used as a visual aid in presentations about biotechnology.


What do you call those diabetic devices that cut you so you can draw blood?


What do you call those diabetic devices that cut you so you can draw blood for testing?  They kind of look like pens.
----------

A lancet device.  The lancet is what's used to actually prick your finger (or forearm, depending on where you test) for the blood draw.
Most look like pens, but I found one that looks like a thick circle; it holds 10 short lancets.  I use it on air trips so that when I'm in the ladies room, I'm not fumbling for the lancets AND the test strips AND......(I also now use a Breeze 2 so I don't have to drop test strips all over the floor as well!)


How can I regrow my foreskin without devices or surgery?


I know it's a odd question, so sorry. I was circumcised as a baby, therefore I feel very little during intercourse. Is there a way I can regrow my foreskin, or at least increase sensitivity without using any devices or getting surgery? Please help, thank you.
----------

Yes you can, but it's not advisable. Look up foreskin restoration (I'm sure you have if you are referring to devices). There are manual methods that can be used with just your hands and doing tension exercises to grow the skin. However the reason why this isn't recommended is because it's going to take you a lot longer to restore. Manual methods take the longest of any, so with manual methods you are looking from anywhere from 4-6 years to complete your restoration. With a device you are looking at 2+ years depending on your age, the older you are the longer it takes. I was 17 when I started restoring and finished in just over 2 years. Some guys 40+ take 4 years. 

Why do you not want to purchase a device? Some are expensive yes but you can home make some with very cheap materials, and even if you buy a device that costs around $100 it's still well worth it. To me that's a tiny price to pay. Devices help the process go by much quicker and they also insure that you will get the results you want. 

The manual methods take around 20-30 minutes a session, and you need to do them 3+ times a day. A device you can just wear under your clothes for 10 hours a day and you don't need to worry about putting aside an hour or so a day to restore, and again they get better results faster.

What devices will clean up my acne 10 points?


I am 14 and I have acne on my forehead, chin , nose, shoulder, chest and back so I really need something to clear it up. I heard of devices like dermawand, zeno, tria, claro, clarosonic etc etc. Any other ones that work effectively and for sure will clean up acne in the those areas? thank you!
----------

definitly sugest you go on accutaine since your acne is so wide spread, the problem with using a device all over is that its very time consumming and they tend to be expensive, the zeno is the cheapest one i know of, but another problem is you need to keep buying new ones because they only last 40 uses, so if you use them morning and night your spending at least 150$ a month on this. im not sure about any of the other devices because ive never used them or heard of them but definintly research them on google if your considering buying one and read reviews on them so that you dont waste your money!  also with summer coming take advantage of the sun, find a water rather than oil based sunscreen so you dont break out even more and sit int the sun, the heat will dry up primples so be sure not to wear any make up as well as give you a tan obviously so that the redness of the pimples isnt as noticable!
good luck, hope i helped a little bit:)


Does anyone know of any devices which treat plaque prolapse in an artery after angioplasty?


I was wondering if there are any devices which remove the protruding plaque by basically 'knocking it off' while an embolic protection device is in place.
----------

Depending on the location & layout of the plaque, an athrectomy device might work. What did the doctor that did the procedure say?


How do you choose and buy diabetic devices/supplies? Do you have a choice or does your doctor/insurance pick?


I'm working on a research project on diabetic devices and how they could be improved, also, my dad has mild diabetes, and I had some questions.

It seems like there are many types and brands of glucose monitoring and insulin delivery devices with a variety of different features, some better than others, but I don't understand how a person comes to choose and buy a particular device.

Does the doctor prescribe a specific kind, or do they give you a prescription for an insulin pump say, then you have a choice of what brand? Do you shop around? Does your insurance only cover certain types?

If you do have a choice, how do you learn about the different available devices?

Are there certain ones that are like the "iPod" of diabetic devices -- the one everyone has or the one everyone wants to have?

If someone who has diabetes or knows someone who does could explain the process you/they use, I'd really appreciate it!
P.S. You can learn more about our YouTube video project here: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/vol/354715779.html
----------

I've had type one diabetes for almost ten years- and that's a long time when you're 17. In the beginning we (my parents and I) chose my supplies based on whatever the doctor told us. As I've gotten older, I've started doing more research on my own. 

For things like blood sugar testing equipment, I ask my doctor what the options are, and weigh each product's advantages against what is important to me. Things I keep in mind are cost of the test strips, memory, and range of testing. I used to use the Freestyle Flash because of its size and its backlight. But if something happened to my pump and I didn't get insulin, the testing range of the flash doesn't go past 500. I know that sounds really high, but when you're on short-acting insulin alone, if you don't get the insulin your blood glucose can rise quickly to really bad numbers. 

When I chose my pump, I went with MiniMed. At the time that I got my first pump (2002/2003) it had the most features available. When I chose my second pump early this year, I chose MiniMed again. I looked through all of th information given to me, and all that was available on the internet. I go through insulin quickly, and the Minimed pump had the largest reservoir, and that was important to me. It has several compatable infusion sets, and if I wasn't comfortable with one, I could try another. 

In a way I think that the MiniMed pumps are becoming the "iPods" of diabetic supplies. They have a wide selection of products for your pump (belt clips, bra pouches, skins).


Did you know that wireless devices can cause health problems?


Did you know that wireless devices may cause health problems, through their emission of radiation, in the long run if exposed to it too much?

It's a Yes or No question by the way.
----------

Yes, cellphones are amongst that group of wireless devices


Are there any devices available to assist in cracking open a raw egg?


I know a guy with only limited use of one hand.  He cannot crack open an egg.  Any devices out there to crack open a raw egg?
----------

I know how to crack an egg on the side of the bowl and open it with one hand.  You don't need two hands to do it. Hold it in the palm of your hand, crack it on the side of the bowl and use your thumb to push the shell open.
