Abstract Over the years, the industry’s interest in using external support devices, such as exoskeletons, is increasing. They are introduced as a new technique for improving the conditions of workers and for reducing the risk of musculoskeletal injuries. An investigation of muscle activity, Jonsson’s (Jonsson, 1982) ergonomic acceptance ranges, and shoulder range of motion was conducted with a sample of 12 workers using an upper extremity exoskeleton in an automotive assembly line. The operators...

A methodology is presented to obtain measurements of the emotional states of workers from the measurement of Heart Rate Variability. Two methodologies have been used, one based on logistic regression and another using fuzzy trees. The results show promising results to have a single model for using through different persons to obtain an estimation of their internal arousal and valence. This estimation will be validated in a second stage with a measurement of the cognitive load of the worker.

Abstract Background A major goal in stroke rehabilitation is the establishment of more effective physical therapy techniques to recover postural stability. Functional Principal Component Analysis provides greater insight into recovery trends. However, when missing values exist, obtaining functional data presents some difficulties. The purpose of this study was to reveal an alternative technique for obtaining the Functional Principal Components without requiring the conversion to functional data ...

Usability recommendations need to be checked with users, combining subjective methodologies with objective and quantitative approaches. The use of physiological response and eye tracking variables allowed detecting better the effect of usability recommendations and user profile. Moreover, some usability recommendations seems to have low effect on improving usability and even can difficult the interaction for users without functional limitaions. Finally, a model to assess the usability has been d...

The term Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a set of neurological disorders that appear in infancy or early childhood and permanently affect body movement and muscle coordination. The prevalence of CP is twothree per 1000 births. Emerging rehabilitation therapies through new strategies are needed to diminish the assistance required for these patients, promoting their functional capability. This paper presents a new robotic platform called CPWalker for gait rehabilitation in patients with CP, which allows th...

Analysis of Ground Reaction Forces is a non-invasive useful tool for the analysis of gait in post-stroke patients. The analysis of ground reactions forces in post-stroke patients is difficult due to the large variability of the shape of the force curves, making very difficult an analysis of the different events of the gait pattern, as has been common practice for years. Functional Principal Components, allows the analysis of the fitting coefficients to a sample of curves better describing the va...

Background Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a disorder of posture and movement due to a defect in the immature brain. The use of robotic devices as alternative treatment to improve the gait function in patients with CP has increased. Nevertheless, current gait trainers are focused on controlling complete joint trajectories, avoiding postural control and the adaptation of the therapy to a specific patient. This paper presents the applicability of a new robotic platform called CPWalker in children with spas...

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a disorder of posture and movement due to an imperfection or lesion in the immature brain. CP is often associated to sensory deficits, cognition impairments, communication and motor disabilities, behaviour issues, seizure disorder, pain and secondary musculoskeletal problems. New strategies are needed to help to promote, maintain, and rehabilitate the functional capacity, and thereby diminish the dedication and assistance required and the economical demands that this condi...
