TI - Quantitative analysis of slow eye movements with an IBM/AT
compatible personal computer in the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
AB - A self-developed software program is presented, by means of which it
is possible to make routine recordings and automated analysis of
slow eye movements in patients with suspected multiple sclerosis.
The menu-guided program runs on an IBM/AT compatible personal
computer and allows on-line survey of slow eye movements.
Furthermore, interactive evaluation of the data is possible. Hard
copies can be made from interesting slow eye movements and their
calculated parameters. Finally, tables containing various parameters
such as gain, pursuit amplitude, phase difference and number of
corrective saccades as well as some simple statistical calculations
can be printed out.

TI - A home evaluation of a behavioral response measure of
AB - 15 women and 3 men enrolled in a first-year undergraduate psychology
course participated in a study concerned with evaluating the home
use of a behavioral response monitor of sleep/wakefulness. The
subjects, representing a range of fairly poor to good sleepers, used
the device for three consecutive nights in their own homes. The 1967
Monroe Questionnaire was used to differentiate "good: sleepers from
"poorer: sleepers. The behavioral response system indicated that
subjects could adequately report how long they slept but
consistently underestimated their number of arousals and could not
reliably specify sleep-onset latency. The behavioral response
measure was an effective and economical means of obtaining in-home
objective sleep data and holds potential for clinical evaluation of
disorders of initiating and maintaining sleep.

TI - The SPOCC (Selective Procedures, Operative Cases, and Consults)
program as an advance in orthopaedic resident record keeping.
AB - This paper outlines the development and use of a software package
developed at the University of New Mexico that allows residents to
use a simple menu driven program for record keeping. Selective
Procedures, Operative Cases, and Consults (SPOCC) was developed for
recording data in individually arranged formats and searching on a
number of input parameters. As Residency Review Committees become
more stringent in their demand for documentation of activities, this
program will give residents the ability to quickly recall any number
of selective procedures, consults or operative cases, along with
case specific data to enable them to review cases, study results in
relation to future follow-up, generate statistics, and stimulate
research ideas. SPOCC can be run on any dual floppy or hard disk
personal computer that uses MS-DOS or PC-DOS 2.0 or greater. It
requires 256 kilobytes of free memory, and a color or monochrome
monitor. A printer is optional.

TI - Acquisition and display of radiation dose distributions using
AB - In the commissioning or quality assurance of a medical linear
accelerator or a computerized radiotherapy planning system, the
traditional approach usually consists of acquiring and comparing
one-dimensional dose profiles. This methodology is tedious and
incomplete since only a portion of the radiation field can
realistically be sampled. We have developed an automated measurement
system which allows efficient measurement and display of complete
two-dimensional dose distributions. The general purpose
microcomputer used (IBM PC/XT compatible) can be interfaced
economically to any water phantom dosimetry system equipped with a
three axis scan controller, and can also communicate data to the
treatment planning system. This allows for direct comparison of
measured with computed dose distributions, thus revealing
discrepancies in the dose computation algorithms used. In this
paper, we describe the interface between the microcomputer, a
conventional water dosimetry system (Therados RFA-3), and a
treatment planning computer. We report our early experience with
acquiring dose distributions and show sample comparisons with
computed results for megavoltage electron beams incident on
homogeneous and heterogeneous systems.

TI - A week in the life of Mary: the impact of microtechnology on a
severely handicapped person.
AB - Microtechnology has an important role to play in maximizing the
independence of severely handicapped people, especially those with
few reliable voluntary movements. Such movements must be harnessed
efficiently to provide control over all aspects of life including
communication, mobility and the immediate environment. To highlight
the role of microtechnology in the day to day life of a severely
handicapped person living at home, a case study is presented. The
systems Mary uses for communication and environmental control are
described and their limitations discussed. Adaptive man-machine
interfaces are proposed and foreseeable developments in the fields
of speech technology and robotics are considered. Successful
introduction of high technology devices requires a full appreciation
of medical and social factors as well as those relating to the
technology. This is achieved through close partnership between the
clinical engineer and the rehabilitation consultant to the benefit
of the severely handicapped person.

TI - Simple computer controlled apparatus for in vitro mechanical testing
of connective tissues.
AB - Connective tissues are viscoelastic and so a series of experiments,
at carefully controlled loading rates, is required to determine
their mechanical properties. This paper describes a simple,
inexpensive apparatus for performing these experiments; it is based
on a ball screw driven by a microcomputer controlled stepper motor.
