Technology-based health promotion: Current state and perspectives in emerging gig economy.

Biocybern Biomed Eng 2019 Jul-Sep;39(3):825-842. Epub 2019 Aug 12.

University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, United States.

It has been a decade since smartphone application stores started allowing developers to post their own applications. This paper presents a narrative review on the state-of-the-art and the future of technology used by researchers in the field of mobile health promotion. Researchers build high cost, complex systems with the purpose of promoting health and collecting data. Read More

Evaluation of electrohysterogram measured from different gestational weeks for recognizing preterm delivery: a preliminary study using random Forest.

Biocybern Biomed Eng 2020 Jan-Mar;40(1):352-362

Centre for Intelligent Healthcare, Faculty of Health and Life Science, Coventry University, Coventry, UK.

Developing a computational method for recognizing preterm delivery is important for timely diagnosis and treatment of preterm delivery. The main aim of this study was to evaluate electrohysterogram (EHG) signals recorded at different gestational weeks for recognizing the preterm delivery using random forest (RF). EHG signals from 300 pregnant women were divided into two groups depending on when the signals were recorded: i) preterm and term delivery with EHG recorded before the 26 week of gestation (denoted by PE and TE group), and ii) preterm and term delivery with EHG recorded during or after the 26 week of gestation (denoted by PL and TL group).

Fuzzy logic approach for infectious disease diagnosis: A methodical evaluation, literature and classification.

Biocybern Biomed Eng 2019 Oct-Dec;39(4):937-955. Epub 2019 Sep 26.

Department of Software Engineering, College of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Jeddah, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

This paper presents a systematic review of the literature and the classification of fuzzy logic application in an infectious disease. Although the emergence of infectious diseases and their subsequent spread have a significant impact on global health and economics, a comprehensive literature evaluation of this topic has yet to be carried out. Thus, the current study encompasses the first systematic, identifiable and comprehensive academic literature evaluation and classification of the fuzzy logic methods in infectious diseases.

Application of decision tree in determining the importance of surface electrohysterography signal characteristics for recognizing uterine contractions.

Biocybern Biomed Eng 2019 Jul-Sep;39(3):806-813

Health and Wellbeing Academy, Faculty of Medical Science, Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, United Kingdom.

The aims of this study were to apply decision tree to classify uterine activities (contractions and non-contractions) using the waveform characteristics derived from different channels of electrohysterogram (EHG) signals and then rank the importance of these characteristics. Both the tocodynamometer (TOCO) and 8-channel EHG signals were simultaneously recorded from 34 healthy pregnant women within 24 h before delivery. After preprocessing of EHG signals, EHG segments corresponding to the uterine contractions and non-contractions were manually extracted from both original and normalized EHG signals according to the TOCO signals and the human marks.

Percutaneous Double Lumen Cannula for Right Ventricle Assist Device System: A Computational Fluid Dynamics Study.

Biocybern Biomed Eng 2016;36(3):482-490. Epub 2016 Apr 18.

Department of Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery Division, University of Kentucky.

Objectives: Our goal is to develop a double lumen cannula (DLC) for a percutaneous right ventricular assist device (pRVAD) in order to eliminate two open chest surgeries for RVAD installation and removal. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance, flow pattern, blood hemolysis, and thrombosis potential of the pRVAD DLC.

Methods: Computational fluid dynamics (CFD), using the finite volume method, was performed on the pRVAD DLC. Read More

Jacek Rumiński

Biocybern Biomed Eng 2016 20;36(4):731-741. Epub 2016 Aug 20.

Gdansk University of Technology, Gdansk, Poland.

Remote estimation of vital signs is an important and active area of research. The goal of this work was to analyze the feasibility of estimating respiration parameters from video sequences of faces recorded using a mobile thermal camera. Different estimators were analyzed and experimentally verified. Read More
