Gait Analysis using Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) sensors
This project continues on the success of the 2D gait analysis system developed in 2014 to capture the 3D motion in lower limb movement using IMU sensors. This system will be useful for clinicians to identify deviations from normal walking patterns and measure changes that are important from a rehabilitation point of view.
Upper Limb Motion Analysis Using Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) sensors
This project aims to develop a system for analyzing upper limb movement using IMU sensors that will enable cricket coaches to analyse bowling actions of players and detect illegal actions.
Objective Measurement of Immersion in AR/VR using Electroencephalogram (EEG)
Immersion is a measurement of the effectiveness of an AR/VR system as experienced by the user. This research project proposes a method to quantitatively measure immersion using EEG and analyses its feasibility. The proposed method consists of 4 components. First, EEG is used to obtain the mental state of users. Secondly, the relationship between these mental states and immersion is investigated. Thirdly, a model combining the first two stages is built. Finally this model is validated.
Development of a Tool for Analyzing Foot Biomechanics and Personalized Care
This project is funded by a Senate Research Committee(SRC) grant and aims to develop a tool for analyzing the biomechanics of the foot based on 3D, geometrically accurate models based on medical image data and finite element analysis to understand the internal stress state, in order to offer a personalized solution for better foot care.
Correlation of the Endothelial Function for Early Prediction of Vascular Diseases
Vascular diseases are mainly caused by the dysfunctionality of the endothelium which is the innermost layer of blood vessels. This project investigates instrumentation development and verification of novel parameters including bio-impedance which reflects this dysfunctionality of the endothelium.
Modelling of the Human Ejaculatory Ducts
The standard treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia is transurethral resection of the prostate. The accuracy of this surgery can be enhanced by 3D modeling.The steps of duct modelling are: Image registration, segmentation and modelling. The transformation is calculated manually and intensity based rigid registration is used to register the captured cadaver images. An active contour model is then used to segment the prostate. A novel segmentation approach is under development with an enormous morphological challenge at hand.
Hearing Screening Through Auditory Evoked Potentials
Auditory neuropathy cannot be diagnosed through traditional hearing tests. Therefore, an evoked potential based method is used to assess hearing objectively. This project looks at developing a device for auditory stimulus delivery, data acquisition, data processing and decision making.
An Augmented Reality Surgical Simulator for Laparoscopic Choleycystectomy
Surgical simulators without force feedback do not give the user the real experience they get during laparoscopic procedures. Through this project, we model the toptissue interaction forces and simulate haptic feedback added to the surgical simulator.
