  • Analysis of Smartphone Triaxial Accelerometry for Monitoring Sleep-Disordered Breathing and Sleep Position at Home 

    Ferrer Lluís, Ignasi; Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Jané Campos, Raimon; Montserrat Canal, Josep Maria (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-04-13)
    Article
    Open Access
    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder in which repetitive upper airway obstructive events occur during sleep. These events can induce hypoxia, which is a risk factor for multiple cardiovascular and cerebrovascular ...
  • Design, implementation, and validation of a piezoelectric device to study the effects of dynamic mechanical stimulation on cell proliferation, migration and morphology 

    Mojena Medina, Dahiana; Martinez Hernandez, Marina; de la Fuente, Miguel; García Isla, Guadalupe; Posada Roman, Julio E.; Jorcano, José Luis; Acedo, Pablo (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-04-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cell functions and behavior are regulated not only by soluble (biochemical) signals but also by biophysical and mechanical cues within the cells’ microenvironment. Thanks to the dynamical and complex cell machinery, cells ...

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Cys-Arg-Glu-Lys-Ala (CREKA) is an important fibrin-homing pentapeptide that has been extensively demonstrated for diagnoses and therapies (e.g., image diagnosis of tumors and to inhibit tumor cell migration and invasion). ...
  • Prediction of three-dimensional crutch walking patterns using a torque-driven model 

    Febrer Nafría, Miriam; Pallarès López, Roger; Fregly, Benjamin Jon; Font Llagunes, Josep Maria (2020-06-29)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Computational prediction of 3D crutch-assisted walking patterns is a challenging problem that could be applied to study different biomechanical aspects of crutch walking in virtual subjects, to assist physiotherapists to ...
  • Identifying muscle synergies from reaching and grasping movements in rats 

    Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Rodriguez Cañón, Maria; García Alías, Guillermo; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Reaching and grasping (R&G) is a skilled voluntary movement which is critical for animals. In this work, we aim to identify muscle synergy patterns from R&G movements in rats and show how these patterns can be used to ...
  • Cardiovascular coupling-based classification of ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathy patients 

    Rodríguez Benítez, Javier; Schulz, Steffen; Voss, Andreas; Giraldo Giraldo, Beatriz (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Cardiovascular diseases are one of the most common causes of death in elderly patients. The etiology of cardiomyopathies is difficult to discern clinically. The objective of this study was to classify cardiomyopathy patients ...
  • Dynamic and irregular distribution of RyR2 clusters in the periphery of live ventricular myocytes 

    Hiess, Florian; Detampel, Pascal; Nolla Colomer, Carme; Vallmitjana Lees, Alexander; Ganguly, Anutosh; Amrein, Matthias; ter Keurs, Henk E.D.J; Benítez Iglesias, Raúl; Hove-Madsen, Leif; Chen, S. R. Wayne (2018-01-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cardiac ryanodine receptors (RyR2s) are Ca2+ release channels clustering in the sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane. These clusters are believed to be the elementary units of Ca2+ release. The distribution of these Ca2+ release ...
  • Comparison of different optimal control formulations for generating dynamically consistent crutch walking simulations using a torque-driven model 

    Febrer Nafría, Miriam; Pallarès López, Roger; Fregly, Benjamin Jon; Font Llagunes, Josep Maria (2020-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Walking impairment due to spinal cord injury can be improved using active orthoses, together with some type of external support such as crutches for balance. This study explores how optimal control problem formulation ...
  • A fuzzy approach for feature extraction of brain tissues in Non-Contrast CT 

    Davis Ortiz, Alberto; Gordillo Castillo, Nelly; Aymerich Martínez, Francisco Javier; Mejía Muñoz, José Manuel; García Quintero, M.; López Córdova, Mario Alberto; Andrade Luján, S. (Sociedad Mexicana de Ingeniería Biomedíca, 2018-01-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    In neuroimaging, brain tissue segmentation is a fundamental part of the techniques that seek to automate the detection of pathologies, the quantification of tissues or the evaluation of the progress of a treatment. Because ...
