Motor point identification is pivotal to elicit comfortable and sustained muscle contraction through functional electrical stimulation. To this purpose, anatomical charts and manual search techniques are used to extract subject-specific stimulation profile. Such information being heterogenous they lack standardization and reproducibility. To address these limitations; we aim to identify, localize, and characterize the motor points of forearm muscles across nine healthy subjects.

    Hyperspectral (HS) imaging presents itself as a non-contact, non-ionizing and non-invasive technique, proven to be suitable for medical diagnosis. However, the volume of information contained in these images makes difficult providing the surgeon with information about the boundaries in real-time. To that end, High-Performance-Computing (HPC) platforms become necessary. This paper presents a comparison between the performances provided by five different HPC platforms while processing a spatial-spectral approach to classify HS images, assessing their main benefits and drawbacks.

    Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) data for a series of GABA phantoms specifically  designed to provide ground truth data for GABA quantification based on MRS data. The spectra were obtained using the WIP Siemens implementation svs-edit of the common edited spectroscopy MEGAPRESS sequence on a 3T Siemens Magnetom Skyra system installed in the Clinical Imaging Unit at Swansea University (UK).

    A new wearable sensing system of respiration rate based on a piezoresistive FlexiForce sensor has been developed. The 3D casing of the system has been designed and printed with a 3D printer. The design of the casing has a direct impact on sensor accuracy. The casing was designed to house all elements of the sensing system in a compact way: microcontroller, battery, conditioning circuit, Bluetooth module and battery charger. The sensing system was validated with twenty-one subjects using a metronome as a reference.

    Monitoring cell viability and proliferation in real-time provides a more comprehensive picture of the changes cells undergo during their lifecycle than can be achieved using traditional end-point assays. Our lab has developed a CMOS biosensor that monitors cell viability through high-resolution capacitance measurements of cell adhesion quality. The system consists of a 3 × 3 mm2 chip with an array of 16 sensors, on-chip digitization, and serial data output that can be interfaced with inexpensive off-the-shelf components.

    The Voltammetry-Based Sensing (VBS) methods are extremely interesting due to high specificity in several biochemical applications. Several considerations can be applied to use this method to measure different analytes, and implement efficient and optimized electronic measurement platform for point-of-care diagnostic, in wearable, portable, or IoT systems. The dataset contains the data presented in [1], which proves on real experimental data a method to define the optimized setup to develop efficient and electronic bio-sensing platforms.

     A human-user study with ten healthy subjects provides this experimental setup. The experimental protocol consists in capturing kinematic data while subjects walk, with the donned H2 lower-limb exoskeleton, across seven experimental conditions: Subjects completed 7 trials each. There were 7 different trials, 3 with marks every 30, 45 and 60 cm on 3 separate 10 meter lanes.
