Non-evoked electromyographic signals range from several hundred microvolts for voluntary contractions to less than a microvolt for resting activity. Calibration of EMG recording equipment at such low levels may prove problematic. We have designed a useful battery operated calibrator for low level...
The indirect calorimetric system of measuring O 2 consumption and CO 2 production has been developed for energy expenditure estimation of premature infants. This apparatus requires an input room air mixing with pure oxygen to obtain a stable gas with definite oxygen concentration flowing into the...
Image segmentation is the partition of an image into a set of non-overlapping regions that comprise the entire image. The image is decomposed into meaningful parts, which are uniform with respect to certain characteristics, such as grey level or texture. This study presents a novel methodology to...
The coagulator is an instrument used in hospitals to detect clot formation as a function of time. Generally, these coagulators are very expensive and therefore not affordable by a doctors' office and small clinics. The objective of this project is to design and implement a low cost semi-automatic...
