Interaction of XUV radiation with biological objects
Department of Natural Sciences, nám. Sítná 3105, Kladno, 272 01
XUV radiation is electromagnetic radiation with wave lengths of 1-100 nm. It is very strongly absorbed by the atmosphere and the majority of substances in our surroundings. Therefore, we do not get in contact with natural sources of this radiation in ordinary life. Significant potential implementation of XUV radiation is expected mainly in new technologies and in biology. Technological applications include mainly lithographic procedures in the production of highly integrated electronic elements, whereas in biology research covers the imaging of small objects, such as cells, and photophysical phenomena. The best known sources of XUV radiation are synchrotrons. Alternative sources whose research is currently highly accentuated are laser plasma and a high-voltage electrical discharge.

Assessing the threat of exposure of firefighters to combustion products
solver: Mgr. Petr Kožený
In the case of fire, a considerable amount of combustion products is generated. Consequently, the fire equipment, the means of fire protection and the firefighters themselves are exposed to contamination. Exposure of firefighters to combustion products occurs not only at the scene of the fire, but also when returning to a fire station. While in Europe and all over the world there are procedures of maintaining the means of fire protection contaminated by chemical, biological, nuclear or radioactive noxious substances, the maintenance of the means of fire protection contaminated by combustion products are often underestimated. Contaminants released from these agents are toxic or carcinogenic and may adversely affect the health of firefighters. Some studies also suggest that firefighters are more likely to suffer from some forms of cancer than the rest of the population. Research aimed at better understanding of where and why the highest exposure of firefighters occur may contribute to lowering its level.

Rehabilitation process quantification#rpq
Department of Information and Communication Technologies in Medicine, Studničkova 7/2028 Prague 2

Rehabilitation process quantification
Who we are?

What research are we doing?
We are interested in monitoring and quantifying the process of rehabilitation care of patients with focal brain injury, using elements of virtual reality, mobile applications and telemedicine systems. We are focused on technologies for the rehabilitation of patients with balance disorders or other related difficulties.
What is it for?
The goal of all rehabilitation procedures is to improve the patient's functional abilities. A number of rehabilitation procedures lead to this goal, which work with the patient in the given environment of the rehabilitation ambulance, or with the help of distant therapy, when the patient rehabilitates in the home environment. The aim of all procedures is to improve the quality of life of patients. Rehabilitation, especially in the initial stages, represents a relatively large burden for a target person, which can significantly affect the functionality of the cardiovascular system and when a certain limit of exercise tolerance is exceeded, rehabilitation may slow down or worsen. That is why we deal with technologies, telemedicine systems and procedures that support the process of distant care.
What exactly are we working on
The issues we are dealing with can be divided into three main areas:
1. Monitoring of a rehabilitating patient in terms of his physical activities and the response of the cardiovascular systém
This part takes place in close cooperation with the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and the General Hospital, which admits patients after brain damage to the program of the so-called day hospital, where they are rehabilitated for 3 weeks. At present, it is not objectified how much time they spend exercising, how they burden the affected and healthy limbs and how much stress the cardiovascular system occurs in rehabilitated patients.
The goal is:
- to obtain an overview of the physical activities of patients rehabilitated within the day hospital, on the basis of this overview it will be possible to optimize the daily regime of patients
- using HRV analysis to determine the degree of stress and cardiovascular load in general in individual phases of rehabilitation
- The analysis of the movement of the affected limb, respectively the improvement of its use during rehabilitation, should provide essential information. Improving movement, ie the gradual involvement of the affected limb in physical activities, is proof of the success of the rehabilitation. Recording of gradual improvement of limb movement resp. limbs would be a measurable and objective record of a better patient. Based on these data, it would then be possible to optimize the rehabilitation procedure.
Based on this information and the experience gained, another goal should be fulfilled in the next phase - monitoring the success of the rehabilitation process carried out in the home environment. From a purely technical point of view, this would be the design and construction of a device enabling the above-mentioned measurements to be carried out during rehabilitation carried out at home. On the one hand, this technical equipment would bring very valuable information about physical activities, time and duration of exercise, the quantitative parameters of which it would be able to continuously monitor.
2. Use of virtual reality for rehabilitation of patients with balance disorders
Balance is ensured in the organism by the interaction of three sensory inputs: visual, vestibular and proprioceptive. Therefore, imbalances can occur when individual systems or centers fail, which fold for their mutual coordination. The standard procedure in the rehabilitation of balance disorders is the use of biological feedback, which uses a stabilometric platform on which the patient stands and monitors the movement of his center of gravity on the screen.
The department participates in research and development of new medical devices in the field of rehabilitation. The developed medical devices include, for example, a patient device consisting of a stabilometric platform, a wrist pedometer and a tablet with a program containing therapeutic games.
Telemedicine expansion can allow remote configuration of a therapeutic exercise plan and remote recording of the course and results of therapy. The therapy also includes a web environment for the management of distance therapy and evaluation of health improvement. Developed medical devices are intended for therapy and comparative evaluation of patients with motor and cognitive impairments due to congenital or acquired brain damage, in geriatric patients, and other patient groups with the need to improve stability and support balance and cognitive training.
The results of the research are used by patients of various rehabilitation institutions after injuries or surgical procedures of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Specialists, general practitioners, physiotherapists or other specialists in hospitals, nursing homes or spas.
Users can be clinics, dispensaries and their clients undergoing rehabilitation for various reasons, where nursing staff will appreciate technological advances in care, electronic procedures and support for home therapy provided remotely. It will improve the quality of care and increase the quality of life of patients suffering from a variety of disabilities, including increasing the comfort of life for their families.
3. Telerehabilitation and patient studies
The university workplace is a professional guarantor and implementer of scientific and technological activities that provide tools, methods and a support system for the implementation of user / patient studies in the field of rehabilitation and telemedicine. The department provides patient research in the form of identification of user needs, determination of requirements for therapeutic / exercise plans and carries out the actual implementation of the pilot deployment of telerehabilitation technology, including the validation of follow-up processes.
