Distance-Based Method used to Localize the Eyeball Effectively for Cerebral Palsy Rehabilitation

AbstractIris plays a vital role in human life for object identification. Many models and techniques were proposed and suggested for detecting the Iris, but the accuracy was not achieved up to the level and its frequently used for biometric application. The Proposed Work divided into two steps, at first, we detect the entire eye region outer layer by using mathematics first order derivatives by applying combinations of canny edge detection and circular hough transform. The next, we detect the inner portion of eye region that is Iris region is detected by combination of sobel edge detector and circular hough transform, As the results thereby reducing the error rate, marking the edges closest to the actual edges for maximizing the localization, indicating edges and also detect the inner and outer layer of the eye portions accurately. Finally this process is applied for cerebral palsy Children to detect the misalignment of eye and obtain the deviation position and results are compared with normal children eyes. In this context, image processing techniques are being recommended as a performance evaluation tool in cerebral palsy kids.

Abstract Introduction: This audit aimed to increase understanding of the long-term outcomes of evidence-based medical and surgical interventions to improve gross motor function in children and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy. Methods: Retrospective audit of a birth cohort (2000-2009) attending a tertiary service in Western Australia. Results: The cohort comprises 771 patients aged 8 to 17 years. Percentage of children receiving no Botulinum Toxin treatments in each Gross Motor Functional Classification System level was: I: 40%, II: 26%, III: 33%, IV: 28% and V: 46%. Of the total cohort, 53% of children rece...

Background: Cerebral palsy (CP) is a permanent motor disorder that occurs at birth or during early infancy. Despite advances in foetal and maternal medicine, the incidence of CP remains high. Hippotherapy has gradually been recognised as an excellent rehabilitation tool for children with CP. However, a scientific basis for how it achieves long-term functional improvements or provides additional benefits to patients’ caregivers remains unknown. Objectives: We performed a prospective trial to determine how hippotherapy affects the gross motor and gait functions in children with CP and how it may also impact the qualit...

ConclusionsThe patients studied mainly had moderate-to-severe CP, with a high frequency of suboptimal VD values and low plasma ferritin; few patients received VD and/or iron supplementation. We suggest monitoring 25(OH)D and ferritin levels due to the high rate of deficiency of these nutrients; public hospitals should be equipped with drugs to treat these deficiencies.ResumenIntroducciónLos niños y adolescentes con parálisis cerebral (PC) tienen mayor riesgo de desnutrición y deficiencias de micronutrientes. Dos de los que podemos estudiar y tratar son la vitamina D (VD) y el hierro. No disponem...

ConclusionsA total of 63 applications were found in biomedical databases and mobile application markets, of which 40 were potentially useful for CP and 23 were specifically designed for the condition (11 for information, 3 for evaluation, and 9 for treatment). There are numerous mobile applications either specifically designed for or with potential to be useful in the field of CP. However, despite the existing scientific evidence, the low methodological quality of scientific articles makes it impossible to generalise the use of these tools.ResumenIntroducciónLa parálisis cerebral infantil (PCI) es una de las ...
