Accurately determining the early Post-Mortem Interval (PMI), the period shortly after death, is critical for reconstructing the timeline of suspected crimes. The PHOEBE model, a new thermodynamic finite-difference model that simulates body cooling, significantly improves PMI estimations but is highly sensitive to the thermal conductivity of the...

Post-mortem interval estimation (PMI) is a key part of forensic investigation. Accurately obtaining a PMI early in the investigative process improves the reconstruction of events, directs follow-up research and narrows down suspects in case of homicide. Currently, PMI is determined using Henssge’s nomogram requiring ambient temperature, rectal...

Ensuring reliable and safe performance of medical devices in healthcare institutions is crucial for the wellbeing of patients. For this, physiological simulators may be used, which provide reference signals to compare against. The usage of physiological simulators, such as ECG simulators, as medical device testers is widely extended in high...

Surgical aerosols in other words plumes are produced during thermal tissue destruction in medical operations. The cellular debris in the form of particulate matter may contain viruses and harmful chemical compounds which can lead to an infectious transmission in case of inhalation. <br/>The goal of this study was to design and produce an...

Medical device selection is currently based on criteria including clinical performance, usability, safety and procurement costs. Growing awareness of the negative contribution of the healthcare sector to the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions demands environmental sustainability to be taken into account as well. Reusable and disposable...

Falls are a significant cause of injury-associated deaths. In cases where the events leading up to a fall are unclear, a forensic investigation may be required to uncover the cause. During the forensic reconstruction process, tools for objective scenario evaluation are needed. Computer simulations appear to be a promising tool for reconstructing...

Each year, many people die due to non-natural causes of death, such as accidents, suicide, and murder and manslaughter. In these cases it is often necessary to investigate the cause, manner and time of death, which are investigated by forensic pathologists and the Police. To determine the time of death, the post mortem interval (PMI), the time...

In patients with oral cavity cancer invading the mandible, a segmental bone resection is performed and the original contour of the mandible is reconstructed with a free fibula flap. Virtual surgical planning is performed prior to surgery to determine the locations and orientations of the osteotomy planes on the mandible and fibula. Currently,...

Worldwide 70-90% of hospitalised patients receive intravenous infusion at some stage during their stay. In many situations, a high degree of infusion accuracy is essential as deviation from the intended dose can quickly become dangerous and moreover costly. Electronic infusion pumps provide the most accurate way of infusion, but they require...

Infant shaking can cause serious damage (inflicted head injury by shaking trauma), it’s occurrence indicates the necessity for infant protection. To ensure reliable jurisprudence, it is important to know the exact consequences of shaking on an infant’s body. These consequences can be researched by the use of an anthropomorphic shake doll. With...

The forensic investigation is one of the first steps in the criminal investigation process concerning home invasion robberies. The forensic investigation consists of objectively capturing the crime scene as it is when starting the investigation. Regarding home invasion robberies, the most important traces are fingerprints and DNA which are used...

Part I:<br/>Inflicted head injury by shaking trauma (IHI-ST) is often simulated to better understand the injury mechanisms and to analyze whether violent shaking can cause head injury in infants. Computational models are usually subjected to linear and rotational inputs to simulate shaking scenarios. In existing studies, the head’s rotation...

When sawing in bone for medical or medico-legal procedures, fine, airborne dust is produced (aerosols) that can pose a health hazard when inhaled by practitioners. The goal of the current study was to find the influence of saw blade frequency and saw blade contact load, the degree of skeletonisation of the bone, the test environment with...

Sealing constructions are frequently used in reusable instruments to prevent the loss of fluids or gasses in a construction by obstructing flow through the glands in the interface of two or more separate parts, and may be applied to seal patients' body fluids. Patient material contains various types of microorganisms, and with the increase of...

DNA can function as a significant part of evidence in forensic investigation, because it can link a potential perpetrator to a crime. Even by skin contact, micro-traces of DNA-containing material can be transferred. This type of DNA is called ‘trace DNA’. When DNA is collected from an evidentiary item for forensic purposes, the goal is to...

In some types of endovascular surgery on the aorta, a catheter needs to be placed in a renal artery to enable renal artery stenting. Therefore, a catheter and a medical guide wire are maneuvered through the vascular system and placed inside the renal artery. In one in eight patients, the renal artery is angulated ≤50°, which could cause the...

Continuum manipulators are high degree of freedom structures that can use their increased degrees of freedom to navigate through an environment with obstacles. This type of manipulator is underactuated, which make them promising for adapting to their environments. However, current research is mainly focused on accurate positioning and obstacle...

In the past two decades, dental implants have been an essential component of the public health. However, lack of a reliable and safe dental surgery imaging modality remains a major problem. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an interferometic optical imaging modality that is somewhat similar to B-mode ultrasound but utilizes infrared light...

To diagnose and treat colon cancer a colonoscopy is usually performed. Current colonoscopy is performed by advancing a colonoscope (scope) through the tortuous colon. However, the flexible scope often buckles when advanced. This can cause discomfort and pain for the patient and can make the examination of the colon difficult for the endoscopist....
