Ryo Ebisuwaki Was Selected for SASIMI 2012 Outstanding Paper Award

The paper of the "TOF-based 3-Dimensional Head-Tracking System for Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation" published by Ryo Ebisuwaki has been selected for the SASIMI 2012 Outstanding Paper Award. Ryo, a first year Social Design major in the Graduate School of Science and Engineering, is a member of a seminar given by professor Yoshihiro Yasumuro, Faculty of Environmental and Urban Engineering, Department of Civil, Environmental and Applied System Engineering.

SASIMI 2012 is an international society providing workshops, which gives young researchers an opportunity for presentation of new ideas as well as advanced work discussion. This time, one "Best Paper Award" and three "Outstanding Paper Awards" were chosen from 106 published papers.

Abstract:
Many survivors from brain infraction and hemorrhage get peripheral nerve damage that sometimes causes neuropathic pain even without external injury. While no medication is useful for neuropathic pain, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has gathered attention for mitigating this pain. Existing rTMS treatments requires precise localization of the stimulation target in the brain and it is necessary to bind a patient to a bed. This paper proposes a new localizing system scheme for keeping the patient unconstrained, using a TOF camera to measure the three-dimensional shape of an object in realtime.
