    FDA-mandated design controls for medical devices provide a structured, systematic engineering paradigm that supports human-centered systems engineering. Engineering design controls are nothing more than the fundamental elements of classical systems engineering. The human focus is enabled through the iterative reidentification of stakeholders, reassessment of their NWDs, and reconciliation of their... View full abstract»

    Wearable technology may provide an integral part of the solution for providing health care to a growing world population that will be strained by a ballooning aging population. By providing a means to conduct telemedicine-the monitoring, recording, and transmission of physiological signals from outside of the hospital-wearable technology solutions could ease the burden on health-care personnel and...

    It is now more than 50 years since the time when clinical monitoring of individuals in the home and community settings was first envisioned. Until recently, technologies to enable such vision were lacking. However, wearable sensors and systems developed over the past decade have provided the tools to finally implement and deploy technology with the capabilities required by researchers in the field...

    The possibility of gathering reliable information about movement characteristics during activities of daily living holds particular appeal for researchers. Data such as this could be used to analyze the performance of individuals undergoing rehabilitation and to provide vital information on whether or not there is an improvement during a neurorehabilitation protocol. Wearable devices are particula... View full abstract»

    The electroencephalogram (EEG) is a classic noninvasive method for measuring a person's brainwaves and is used in a large number of fields: from epilepsy and sleep disorder diagnosis to brain-computer interfaces (BCIs). Electrodes are placed on the scalp to detect the microvolt-sized signals that result from synchronized neuronal activity within the brain. Current long-term EEG monitoring is gener...

    Exoskeletons are wearable robots exhibiting a close cognitive and physical interaction with the human user. These are rigid robotic exoskeletal structures that typically operate alongside human limbs. Scientific and technological work on exoskeletons began in the early 1960s but have only recently been applied to rehabilitation and functional substitution in patients suffering from motor disorders...

    In this article, we focus on the least invasive interface: transcutaneous ES (TES), i.e., the use of surface electrodes as an interface between the stimulator and sensory-motor systems. TES is delivered by a burst of short electrical charge pulses applied between pairs of electrodes positioned on the skin. Monophasic or charge-balanced biphasic (symmetric or asymmetric) stimulation pulses can be d... View full abstract»

    This article describes health technology assessment (HTA) as an evaluation tool that applies systematic methods of inquiry to the generation and use of health technologies and new products. The focus of this article is on the contributions of HTA to the management of the new product development effort in the biomedical organization. Critical success factors (CSFs) are listed, and their role in ass... View full abstract»
