Book Description :

Millions of people worldwide are affected by neurological disorders which disrupt the connections within the brain and between brain and body causing impairments of primary functions and paralysis. Such a number is likely to increase in the next years and current assistive technology is yet limited. A possible response to such disabilities, offered by the neuroscience community, is given by Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMIs) and neuroprostheses. The latter field of research is highly multidisciplinary, since it involves very different and disperse scientific communities, making it fundamental to create connections and to join research efforts. Indeed, the design and development of neuroprosthetic devices span/involve different research topics such as: interfacing of neural systems at different levels of architectural complexity (from in vitro neuronal ensembles to human brain), bio-artificial interfaces for stimulation (e.g. micro-stimulation, DBS: Deep Brain Stimulation) and recording (e.g. EMG: Electromyography, EEG: Electroencephalography, LFP: Local Field Potential), innovative signal processing tools for coding and decoding of neural activity, biomimetic artificial Spiking Neural Networks (SNN) and neural network modeling. In order to develop functional communication with the nervous system and to create a new generation of neuroprostheses, the study of closed-loop systems is mandatory. It has been widely recognized that closed-loop neuroprosthetic systems achieve more favorable outcomes for users then equivalent open-loop devices. Improvements in task performance, usability, and embodiment have all been reported in systems utilizing some form of feedback. The bi-directional communication between living neurons and artificial devices is the main final goal of those studies. However, closed-loop systems are still uncommon in the literature, mostly due to requirement of multidisciplinary effort. Therefore, through eBook on closed-loop systems for next-generation neuroprostheses, we encourage an active discussion among neurobiologists, electrophysiologists, bioengineers, computational neuroscientists and neuromorphic engineers. This eBook aims to facilitate this process by ordering the 25 contributions of this research in which we highlighted in three different parts: (A) Optimization of different blocks composing the closed-loop system, (B) Systems for neuromodulation based on DBS, EMG and SNN and (C) Closed-loop BMIs for rehabilitation.

Book Description :

The field of health informatics (or medical informatics as it is sometimes called) is still a relatively young one compared to other areas of biomedicine and the health sciences. Nevertheless, its impact on the quality and efficiency of healthcare is crucial. This second, extensively revised and updated edition of Health Informatics: An Overview includes new topics which address contemporary issues and challenges and shift the focus on the health problem space towards a computer perspective. An overview is provided of the health informatics discipline and the book is suitable for use as a basic text in both undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Preparing students for practice as health professionals in any discipline, it deliberately avoids focusing on any one speciality. The publication is divided into six sections: an overview, basic concepts, applications supporting clinical practice, service delivery, management and clinical research and education. With contributions from many distinguished authors, this book is a valuable resource for healthcare professionals and students of health informatics alike.

Book Description :

As the United States continues to debate reform of its healthcare system, this book argues that providing health insurance for all without improving the delivery system will not improve the current problems of access, affordability, and quality. The US healthcare system has many excellent components; strong scientific input, extraordinary technology for diagnosis and treatment, dedicated staff and top-class facilities among them. But the system has evolved haphazardly over time and although it has not failed entirely, the authors argue that like any system where attention, is paid to individual components at the expense of the system as a whole, it can never hope to succeed. Above all, they point out that the US system does not provide high value healthcare; it has the highest costs in the world and yet many other countries have lower infant mortality rates and better life expectancy. Together with a team of highly regarded thought leaders, the authors of this publication advocate a complete re-thinking of healthcare from a systems perspective - an engineering approach to healthcare-and they then describe how to set about it. Covering a wide range of subjects including: health care costs and economics, barriers to change, integrated health systems, electronic records and computer-based patient support as well as patient safety and palliative and chronic care, this book will be of interest to all those involved in healthcare provision whose goal is affordable care to promote healthy, high quality lives.

"HealthGrid 2009 is the seventh meeting of this open forum for the integration of grid technologies, e-science and e-health methods and their applications in the biomedical and healthcare domains. The principal objective of the HealthGrid conference and of the HealthGrid Association is the exchange and debate of ideas, technologies, solutions and requirements that interest the grid and the life-science communities and are likely to promote the integration of grids into biomedical research and health in the broadest sense." "Subjects in this publication reflect the anticipated, though slow, move towards real applications. The first topic that will be discussed is Accessibility, the challenge of making Grids more accessible to bio-medical users and the fraught issue of usability. The next focal area is Core Technologies and Data Integration. This area will be followed by the topic Applications. The debate on Ethical, Legal, Social and Economic (ELSE) Issues is combined with another prominent topic, the Future of Grids."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Description :

Confounding Medical Consensus, an 81-year-old hatha yoga master, whom a surgical error rendered a quasi-quadriplegist, and who was told independently by three doctors that he would never walk again, WALKS in 8 Months! A Triumph of Therapy; A Triumph of Faith! Until I directly confronted the Health Care Provider Medical Director at the Hebrew Home, for 10 weeks I was flailing against lengthening shadows of ignorance of my truly hopeless condition because my surgeon chose to violate his legal requirement to tell me my physical condition. Is this affliction a punishment from God? Can I, who have delivered many Prophetic Messages to meet many concrete needs of many people at four different churches in Asia and America over 60 years, ask God for a Prophecy of Healing? Will God find me Faithless if I don't take literally Prophecy I &/Or II regarding my healing? In the second week of my stay at Hebrew Home of Greater Washington, D.C, the Health Care Provider Medical Director decided to discharge me around September 30. Two fundamental miracles had to occur to void the imminent discharge. I sketch the Herculean efforts to re-create 23 functionalities beginning with the likes of crawling: (1) Crawl -> (2) Kneel -> (3) Scoot -> (4) Stand -> (5) Transfer -> (6) Walk. The re-creation of functionalities takes place within the certainty of the date of my death, known since 1979 at age 49, which assures me that the quadriplegia is not unto death. I have confounded medical consensus that I will never walk again, thanks to the faith of several communities continually praying for my recovery-the faith creating and consummating the miracle of a quasi-quadriplegist walking in 8 months, rapidly progressing to walking 3 miles a day unassisted.
