The research question that is being proposed is whether an air-based device can address volume fluctuation inside a prosthetic socket for lower limb amputees. The main objective will be to find a solution that can improve comfort and reduce volume fluctuation. Amputees continue to face problems of discomfort due to fluctuation of the residual limb
Startle evoked Movement (SEM) has triggered muscle movements in previously paralyzed muscles. Another study has shown improved learning within a one-week training period for individuals completing a novel motor task. This leads to the question of whether SEM has the capacity to improve motor learning. This study analyzes SEM during three training sessions in a
Measuring the facial muscles of stroke patients during startled speech can lead to improved speech therapy tools.
The ability to learn and retain new motor tasks is essential to everyday life; however, the neural mechanisms governing this process are poorly understood to date. Recent evidence demonstrates that a shift from cortical to subcortical structures occurs during procedural task learning, detected by startle-evoked movement (SEM). The objective of this study is to determine
