Others Projects at a Glance
1.Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) assisted walking among persons with chronic stroke (Hemiplegics) with drop foot in collaboration with IIT, Kharagpur.
In this project, a FES module has been designed at a low cost & tested successfully in clinical trials . This is a non-invasive low-cost pocket model single channel neuro-stimulator for generating multiple pattern waveforms directly from the micro-controller without using other electronics circuit/componentsa and controls of various functions for different FES applications.The patent has been submitted for the said works and more than ten publications executed. One Research Fellow has successfully completed his PhD in this project.

2.To evaluate the clinical feasibility and effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) therapy of quadriceps femoris (QF) and tibialis anterior (TA) muscles on improving gait and functional outcomes in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP).
Reducing spasticity and enhancing muscular coordination are goals of majority treatment modalities used in CP. In recent years, devices for neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) are increasingly used to improve gait parameters and functional outcomes in children with spastic CP and are becoming a popular technique in physical therapy and rehabilitation practices. The most often stimulated muscle group in the thigh is the quadriceps femoris (QF). There is however a lack of uniformity over the selection of muscle group for leg. Some studies advocate stimulation of tibialis anterior (TA), while some others advocate stimulation of gastrocnemius and some do both. Most studies reported in the literature have stimulated calf muscles with or without TA. There is no clear evidence to determine the effectiveness of NMES of any group of muscles in treatment of CP. Further research is needed to help guide clinical practice, and controlled trials are required to assess the value of NMES treatment in CP . The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical feasibility and effect of combining NMES of both QF and TA muscles along with conventional physiotherapy as compared to conventional physiotherapy alone in children with CP. The outcomes measures are changes in gait parameters and changes in surface EMG of quadriceps femoris and tibialis anterior muscles.
3.Establishing Correlation Of Spinal Deformity In Various Planes, Finding Some Variables And Parameters, a collaborrative project with Calcutta University.
Measurement of Cobb angle is one of the important aspects and the standard technique used for scoliosis assessment. The challenging task in computerized method lies in totally automating the method of curvature measurement from digital X-ray images. In this project procedure/algorithm to be developed to find a method which automatically measures the Cobb angle from radiographs after selection of the end vertebrae of the curve. The image processing methods used shows an appreciable measurement of scoliosis curvature in digital X-ray image, reducing user intervention. The proposed method detects the inclination of the vertebra by identifying the lines of the endplate from edge image, helping in calculating the Cobb angle in the direction of the endplates automatically. An intra-observer and inter-observer assessment was performed over the radiographs using the manual and the proposed digital method. A level of improvement for Cobb angle measurement targeted to be achieved in the proposed computerized image processing technique in terms of estimating the vertebral slope and limiting user intervention.
