<i>Neuropathic pain</i> (NP) affects approximately seven to ten percent of the general population. Seventeen percent of NP patients scored their life as “worse than death”. A myriad of causes may underlie NP, such as stroke or spinal cord injury. Also, damage or disease of the <i>peripheral nervous system</i> (PNS) may result in NP. One of the...

Outstanding seizure detection algorithms using electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings have been developed over the past decade. These works mainly focus on best of class performance, which leads to computationally heavy solutions. This limits the applicability of these detection algorithms for hardware implementations such as field­programmable...

Internet-of-things (IoT) devices utilising energy harvesting often use solar cells as their harvester. The same solar cells can also be used to sense illuminance (in lux). Current and voltage sensing systems are researched. Also, the accuracy limits of the system are researched to see what accuracy is expected. Different design options, based on...

This work proposes an energy harvesting platform that is able to convert power from both DC sources (photo-voltaic cells and TEGs) as well as piezo element sources. It does so only using a single input channel to which a single harvester can be connected. The proposed system is able to differentiate between the two source...

The main objective of this thesis is to design a transmitter channel which is implemented in a 2D phased-array ultrasound neuromodulation system aiming for the vagus nerve stimulation. The vagus nerve has the widest distribution in the parasympathetic system and it oversees several important bodily functions such as the control of mood, immune...

Biomedical engineering focuses in advancing health care by taking advantage of the technological improvement. An important part of biomedical engineering is biomedical sensing, that focuses in the acquisition of biopotential signals. Through time, a lot of research has been done on the acquisition of biopotential signals and a variety of methods...

Predicting when a neonate will fall victim to an infection or a disease allows prevention through early medicine administering. Such physiological conditions can be made visible using infrared thermography (IRT). This is a technique for measuring heat emitted in the infrared spectrum and transforming them into visible...

Development of a visual prosthesis has the potential to help millions of patients with visual impairment around the world. One approach of visual prostheses is intracortical stimulation, where electrodes penetrating the visual cortex are used to create small light dots in the patients visual field. Said therapy requires an implantable...

Approximately 15-20% of theworld population is aected by tinnitus, a hearing condition associated with phantomsound perception. A large number of suerers experience a severe level of tinnitus and they are not ableto conduct a normal life because they develop insomnia, depression, and distress.Extensive research has been made to study its...

The neuromodulation modality based on the focused ultrasonic stimulation (FUS) has gained its interests for being non-invasive while having unprecedented high spatial resolution and deep penetration. The commercially available image-guided FUS device for neuromodulation setups are normally bulky, by employing an 1-D array transducer element to...

Neonates are among the most fragile in the human population. Even more so when born prematurely. Their loss of development time in the womb disrupts their growth, and the neonatal intensive care unit environment can add multiple stresses that hinder their development. This can partly be attributed to the intrusive environment of a neonatal...

In an effort to make DNA sequencing more accessible and affordable, Oxford Nanopore Technologies developed the MinION: A portable cellphone sized DNA sequencing device. Translating the information from this device to a nucleotide sequence is called basecalling, and is done with the aid of artificial neural networks. In this thesis, we accelerate...

Biosensing has been developed rapidly for a number of biomedical applications, including neural monitoring, protein detection, bacteria detection and blood glucose monitoring. Among the branches of bio-sensing, capacitive sensing is a promising technique and utilized widely, since it is rapid, simple, label free and inexpensive. Compared with...

MRI machine has evolved tremendously over the years from its inception in order to render high-quality 3D images, best among its companion imaging systems. Of the whole system, RF receiver is the most crucial for its noise performance, which is expected to provide high SNR at all operating conditions. At Philips, MRI’s RF receiver is based on...

In the Netherlands the preterm birth rate is around 7%. The problematic part is that these preterm infants make up for 72% of all deaths during or shortly after birth. To provide a way to aid these infants the following question was stated by the doctor: "turn on a light in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when the preterm infant’s development...

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a noninvasive technique, allowing for the reversible modulation of activity in particular brain regions. TDCS has obtained much scientific interest and it promises many potential benefits to the patients.<br/><br/>However, tDCS that is performed today is almost the same with the method that was...

"The use of high-frequency stimulation for conduction block of the pudendal nerve has potentially high benefits for patients suffering from non-neurogenic urinary retention. Special care has to be put in the design of stimulation parameters to ensure safe operation and prevent electrode and tissue damage. While high-frequency conduction block...

It is well-known that GPS is a widely used technology for localization in outdoors environments. Nonetheless, such standard fails to provide a practical and accurate solution for localization and ranging applications within indoor environments due to the need of satellites and meter-level accuracy, which is poor for indoor environments. It is in...
