    Data compression technique for high resolution wireless photoplethysmograph recording system

    , Article International Conference on Space Science and Communication, IconSpace ; 2013 , Pages 345-349 ; 21654301 (ISSN) ; 9781467352314 (ISBN) Chong, K. S ; Zahedi, E ; Gan, K. B ; Mohd. Ali, M. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Multi-site photoplethysmography is an optoelectronic technique that measures changes in blood volume associated with cardiac contraction. Photoplethysmogram (PPG) recording enables researchers to study the vascular and hemodynamic properties of human subjects. Currently, there is no commercial system available in the market to perform multi-channel PPG recording. The measurements can be obtained from fingertips, ear lobes and toes due to their low absorption and high degree of vasculature. The main objective of this project is to develop a suitable data compression algorithm for two-channel simultaneous high resolution wireless PPG recording system. MATLAB software was used during the... 

    Development of physical 3D model of maternal-fetal to study light interaction through tissue

    , Article 2012 International Conference on Biomedical Engineering, ICoBE 2012 ; 2012 , Pages 557-561 ; 9781457719899 (ISBN) Jumadi, N. A ; Gan, K. B ; Mohd Ali, M. A ; Zahedi, E ; Sharif University of Technology
    The development of a synthetic model of a pregnant woman abdomen with amniotic fluid and a fetus is discussed comprehensively in this paper. The model is intended to be used for studying the light propagation through physical 3D model of pregnant woman in reflectance mode. To construct the model, reported dimension values of body curvature in 26 and 28 weeks of pregnant woman are being used as main references. Although slightly adjustments have been made to the body dimensions, the values are still within the range of reference values. Optical simulation has been performed in order to test the model capability. Given the reasonable computational time and encouraging preliminary results, the... 

    Determination of reflectance optical sensor array configuration using 3-layer tissue model and Monte Carlo simulation

    , Article IFMBE Proceedings, 20 June 2011 through 23 June 2011 ; Volume 35 IFMBE , 2011 , Pages 424-427 ; 16800737 (ISSN) ; 9783642217289 (ISBN) Jumadi, N. A ; Gan, K. B ; Mohd Ali, M. A ; Zahedi, E ; Sharif University of Technology
    A new reflectance optical sensor array for locating fetal signal transabdominally has been determined in this study. The selection of optical sensor array is based on the highest Irradiance (μW/m2) value estimated on respected detectors. A three-layer semi-infinite tissue model which consists of maternal, amniotic fluid sac and fetal tissues is employed to study the optical sensor array configuration. By using statistical error approach, the number of rays injected to the system can be set to 1 million rays with ±3.2% of simulation error. The simulation results obtained from Monte Carlo technique reveal that diamond configuration is the most suitable configuration of reflectance optical... 

    A synergistic program between engineering and business schools towards medical technology commercialization

    , Article IEEE TENSYMP 2014 - 2014 IEEE Region 10 Symposium ; 14- 16 April , 2014 , pp. 456-461 ; ISBN: 9781479920280 Zahedi, E ; Gan, K. B ; Chellappan, K ; Ali, M. A. M ; Mustafa, M. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Governments in developing countries have invested in institutions of higher learning in order to develop homegrown, high technology products. Among these, the National University of Malaysia (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia), recognized as a Research University, is actively involved in projects related to medical technology through its various faculties. The net result of these activities is impressing from the point of view of patents and publications, but unfortunately not yet in terms of commercialization. This paper starts by presenting the main obstacles towards the objective of bringing a laboratory prototype to the market in the context of Malaysia. Then, a framework is presented...
