20120271872PROCEDURE FOR DENOISING DUAL-AXIS SWALLOWING ACCELEROMETRY SIGNALS - Dual-axis swallowing accelerometry is an emerging tool for the assessment of dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). These signals however can be very noisy as a result of physiological and motion artifacts. A novel scheme for denoising those signals is proposed, i.e. a computationally efficient search for the optimal denoising threshold within a reduced wavelet subspace. To determine a viable subspace, the algorithm relies on the minimum value of the estimated upper bound for the reconstruction error. A numerical analysis of the proposed scheme using synthetic test signals demonstrated that the proposed scheme is computationally more efficient than minimum noiseless description length (MNDL) based de-noising. It also yields smaller reconstruction errors (i.e., higher signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio) than MNDL, SURE and Donoho denoising methods. When applied to dual-axis swallowing accelerometry signals, the proposed scheme improves the SNR values for dry, wet and wet chin tuck swallows. These results are important to the further development of medical devices based on dual-axis swallowing accelerometry signals.10-25-2012

20110153704Filter - Provided is an FIR filter capable of obtaining predetermined characteristics with a small number of input taps, delay circuits, and multipliers and achieving an improved response and low cost. In a low-pass filter, a band-pass filter, and a high-pass filter based on an FIR filter, a basic filter is configured that gives a basic impulse response function and has a filter coefficient determined from the impulse response function. Filters having different frequency characteristics are configured by changing the time scale or frequency scale of the basic filter. These filters having different frequency characteristics are combined in a cascade form or a step form, thereby constructing an FIR filter having a small number of taps.06-23-2011
20100030830Method of predicting of signal processes via separation on band-limited and high-frequency components - A method of prediction is suggested for the characteristics of future values of processes that can be expressed as integrals over future times with different weight functions (kernels), or as anticausal convolution integrals. In particular, all band-limited processes processes are predictable in this sense, as well as high-frequency processes, with zero energy at low frequencies. In addition, process of mixed type can still be predicted using low-pass filter and high-pass filter for this process, to provide separation on low-band and high frequency processes. It is allowed that an outcome of low-pass filter be not a purely band-limited process, but have exponential decay of energy on high frequencies. The algorithm suggested consists of two blocks: separation of a process on band-limited and high-frequency components, and approximation of the transfer function of the anticausal integral that has to be predicted by transfer functions for causal convolution integrals. This approximation has to be done separately for high frequency domain and low band domain.02-04-2010
