Background: Abnormal patellofemoral joint loading patterns may cause patellofemoral pain and may be caused by patellar maltracking. Treatment is aimed at restoring normative patellofemoral kinematics. For this, an accurate estimation of the patellofemoral kinematics is necessary. While 4-dimensional computed tomography (4D-CT) can provide this...

In biomechanics, human movement studies are carried out to assess the subject’s kinematic and kinetic variables for a healthy gait. Currently, marker-based systems are the standardized method to extract the kinematic variables of subjects. The marker-based systems pose some serious challenges like cost and portability, and the calibration and...

Patients with neuromuscular diseases that are unable to speak, but whose cognitive ability has been maintained, can be benefited from Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs). The decoding of inner (covert) speech from EEGs consists of one of the state of the art methods that aim to tackle this issue. High variability between subjects, as well as low...

To better understand and predict osteoarthritis, researchers are developing so-called coupled modelling workflows. Coupled workflows convert data from gait analysis studies to subject-specific tissue mechanical response estimations through the use of musculoskeletal and finite element models. The tissue mechanical response inside the joint is...

People need to have a comfortable experience in vehicles nowadays. However, they are continuously exposed to vibrations from the vehicle. Madymo active human models (AHM) can be used for comfort analysis and to learn how vibrations influence the human body in several aspects. However, existing AHM are very time-consuming due to their complexity,...

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a condition in adolescents affecting the proximal femur. Increased mechanical forces result in fracture of the growth plate. Factors increasing the mechanical forces include for example obesity and endocrine disorders. As a result of the fracture a shift of the bone shaft towards the femur head occurs,...

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a neuromuscular disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness as well as progressive muscle fat replacement. Absence of functional dystrophin in muscles is believed to cause membrane instability, making the sarcolemma susceptible to damage when subjected to mechanical stress. However, the process...

Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) is a procedure where a defective hip joint with pain symptoms or functional impairment is replaced by a hip prosthesis. During this procedure, the optimal hip prosthesis should be chosen and placed in the correct orientation to achieve a stable hip joint. Failure to do so can lead to dislocation, mechanical failure...

BACKGROUND: Knee problems are the most common complaints of the lower extremity in the Netherlands. Osteoarthritis has the highest prevalence of all knee complaints. Knee osteoarthritis is likely to start at the patellofemoral joint and is associated with the aggravation of pain. Mechanical overloading is hypothesized to contribute to the...
