Computer simulations are effective tools for addressing enterprise transformation in terms of alternative organizational policies, operating procedures, and allocations of resources. We present a multilevel approach to computationally model health delivery enterprises. This approach is illustrated by its application to an employer-based prevention and wellness program. The decision of interest in this application concerns the design of prevention and wellness programs that are self-sustaining and provide a positive return on investment for the overall enterprise.
People with severe motor disabilities such as ALS may not be able to move their facial muscles to communicate. This study is examining the salient features of facial expressions in order to create "emotional prosthetics" - ways for people with disabilities to express emotion. The resulting prosthetics will be controlled by voluntary and involuntary brain signals.
Patients suffering from traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries may benefit from neuroplasticity guided and reinforced by motor learning feedback through reorganization of the neural pathways in intact parts of the brain and spinal cord. An enhanced version of a tongue-operated robotic rehabilitation system is presented for accelerating the rate of improvement in the upper extremity motor functions for patients with severe hemiparesis following stroke.
