  • Evaluation of linear and non-linear activation dynamics models for insect muscle. [Journal Article]
    PLoS Comput Biol 2019; 15(10):e1007437Harischandra N, Clare AJ, … Dürr V
  • In computational modelling of sensory-motor control, the dynamics of muscle contraction is an important determinant of movement timing and joint stiffness. This is particularly so in animals with many slow muscles, as is the case in insects-many of which are important models for sensory-motor control. A muscle model is generally used to transform motoneuronal input into muscle force. Although sta…
  • Light Spot-Based Assay for Analysis of Drosophila Larval Phototaxis. [Journal Article]
    J Vis Exp 2019; (151)Sun Y, Zhou P, … Gong Z
  • The larvae of Drosophila melanogaster show obvious light-avoiding behavior during the foraging stage. Drosophila larval phototaxis can be used as a model to study animal avoidance behavior. This protocol introduces a light-spot assay to investigate larval phototactic behavior. The experimental set-up includes two main parts: a visual stimulation system that generates the light spot, and an infrar…
  • Person transfer assist systems: a literature review. [Journal Article]
    Disabil Rehabil Assist Technol 2019; :1-10Sivakanthan S, Blaauw E, … Cooper RA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Robotic device research is a recent development within assistive technology. Whilst usability evaluations provided evidence that a robotic device will provide better service to the user, the sample number of subjects used are minimal in comparison to any of the intervention/control group articles. Experimental studies between PTASs are required to support technological advancements. Caregiver injury risk has been the focus for most of the comparison articles; however, few articles focus on the implications to the person. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION Ceiling mounted lifts are preferred over floor-based lifts due to lower injury rates. Many robotic transfer systems have been developed; however, there is a paucity of quantitative and qualitative studies. Based on the results of this review, rehabilitation settings are recommended to use ceiling over floor assist systems, and it is recommended to provide training on using devices to assist with patient transfers to lower the risk of injuries.
