Control System Design for Electrical Stimulation in Upper Limb Rehabilitation Modelling, Identification and Robust Performance

Control System Design for Electrical Stimulation in Upper Limb Rehabilitation Modelling, Identification and Robust Performance

Author: Chris Freeman Format: Paperback Release Date: 23/08/2016

This book presents a comprehensive framework for model-based electrical stimulation (ES) controller design, covering the whole process needed to develop a system for helping people with physical impairments perform functional upper limb tasks such as eating, grasping and manipulating objects. The book first demonstrates procedures for modelling and identifying biomechanical models of the response of ES, covering a wide variety of aspects including mechanical support structures, kinematics, electrode placement, tasks, and sensor locations. It then goes on to demonstrate how complex functional activities of daily living can be captured in the form of optimisation problems, and extends ES control design to address this case. It then lays out a design methodology, stability conditions, and robust performance criteria that enable control schemes to be developed systematically and transparently, ensuring that they can operate effectively in the presence of realistic modelling uncertainty, physiological variation and measurement noise.

When his son is implicated in a gristly murder, Joseph Soyinka will do whatever it takes to prove his innocence, even if it means endangering the new life they've made together.Forced from Nigeria after investigating one too many corruption cases, former detective Joseph Soyinka and his son Yomi have settled into a quieter life in the Bronx, with Joseph finding a new career as a taxi driver. After a teacher at Yomi's school is found brutally stabbed in his locked classroom, suspicions immediately fall on troubled student Jermaine Letts. But when the investigation links the murder weapon to Yomi, Joseph is driven to take up the case on his own to save his son.

Internationally-renowned expert contributors guide readers through the latest research, taking a critical overview of each practice's strengths and weaknesses. A final chapter provides an overview for the future.

Research Methods in Psychiatry

Research Methods in Psychiatry

Author: Chris Freeman Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/12/2006

This updated comprehensive guide to psychiatric research methods takes the reader from getting started in research through to publishing a paper, with advice on avoiding common pitfalls along the way. Systematic analysis and meta-analysis, epidemiology, qualitative research, and research focused on a few patients are discussed, together with the principles of validity and reliability in the assessment of psychological variables and statistical aspects of the design and analysis of clinical trials. Five completely new chapters cover topics such as research from the trainee's perspective and research in learning disability and child and adolescent psychiatry. A key text for psychiatric trainees embarking on research projects, this book will also be useful to psychiatrists supervising research projects, and those in the social sciences with an interest in carrying out research or critically reviewing the published evidence. Topics covered include setting up a research project, how to make a comprehensive review of the literature, choosing a rating scale, and getting research published.

As Time Goes By From the Industrial Revolutions to the Information Revolution

As Time Goes By From the Industrial Revolutions to the Information Revolution

Author: Chris Freeman, Francisco Louca Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/02/2001

How can we best understand the impact of revolutionary technologies on the business cycle, the economy, and society? Why is economics meaningless without history and without an understanding of institutional and technical change? Does the 'new economy' mean the 'end of history'?an we best understand the impact of revolutionary technologies on business organization and the business cycle? These are some of the questions addressed in this authoritative analysis of modern economic growth from the Industrial Revolution to the 'New Economy' of today. Chris Freeman has been one of the foremost researchers on innovation for a long time and his colleague Francisco Louca is an outstanding historian of economic theory and an analyst of econometric models and methods. Together they chart the history of five technological revolutions: water-powered mechanization, steam-powered mechanization, electrification, motorization, and computerization. They demonstrate the necessity to take account of politics, culture, organizational change, and entrepreneurship, as well as science and technology in the analysis of economic growth. This is an well-informed, highly topical, and persuasive study of interest across all the social sciences.
