The wrist is one of the most complex joints in the human body, comprised of multiple bones and ligaments, and capable of performing a variety of movements. Proper wrist motion relies heavily on the interplay between the carpal bones of the hand and its ligamentous connections, and when that interplay is compromised hand function can be severely...

Achilles tendinopathy (AT) is a common Achilles tendon injury, yet its exact cause and the factors influencing progression of individuals remain unclear. Strain distribution is indicated to play a significant role in the progression, possibly linked to the twist of the subtendons. Pizzolato et al. (2020) proposed an integrated framework for...

Background: In the field of orthoses for the treatment of forearm injuries, there is a growing clinical demand for more precise and individualized health monitoring technologies. The integration of additive manufacturing techniques with wearable electronics has gained significant interest in this field, emerging as a prominent treatment option...

Data that can be collected with the use of instrumented implants can help in diagnosis and treatment of complications during the lifetime of total joint replacements. They can give an accurate reading of the status of the implant from within the body. In this research project an electronic system is designed to<br/>feed sensors with enough...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive joint degeneration disease resulting in joint pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility. Among patients with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), OA incidence is increased. Articular cartilage (AC) degeneration is irreversible, therefore prevention and early detection are essential. Specifically, the...

Introduction: Tibial fracture healing complications occur frequently with reported non-union rates up to 23%. Preoperative patient-specific finite element (FE) modelling of fracture fixation may help to minimize these complications. However, developing such models requires labour-intensive work including (manual) segmentation of bones from...

Open Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy (OWHTO) is an extensively used, effective treatment option for medical conditions such as medial knee osteoarthritis and varus malalignment. The current developments in the 3D printing industry facilitated using 3D printed patient-specific guides (PSSGs), making OWHTO a desirable treatment option. Although the...

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...

That mechanical properties of the extracellular environment can influence cell behaviour has already been established. Recent studies indicate that human mesenchymal stem cells are affected by the surface curvature of the underlying substrate. However, how meso-scale substrate curvature affects cell behaviour is still not clear. This study...

Acetabular component revision surgery in people with severe acetabular bone defect is challenging and associated with higher failure rates compared to primary total hip arthroplasty. This MSc Thesis project aimed to assess the static strength of a novel custom triflange acetabular component (CTAC) by experimental testing and finite element (FE)...

Background: Advancements in the field of artificial intelligence have lead to the incorporation of automated algorithms in the analysis of medical images and data. Deep learning algorithms have been applied in muscu- loskeletal research to improve the understanding of osteoarthritis and to assist in disease detection and prognosis. The majority...

Bone defects are a common problem in healthcare today. When the damage is too extensive, the human body is not able to heal itself. Different solutions are available, but they all have limitations. Therefore, the search for a solution to overcome these limitations is important. In this theses a way to create a scaffold out of seperate crumpled...

Restoration of the normal mandibular form and function is attempted with reconstructive surgery. The current standard procedure to restore continuity defects of the mandible involves free tissue transfer with an autologous bone flap. Even though the success rates are high, several critical drawbacks have been associated with this procedure,...

Additive manufacturing (AM) provides the opportunity for complex porous designs, without the costs depending on batch size. Therefore patient-specific implants can be rapidly manufactured. In clinical practice, reconstruction of the mandible is needed in case of bone tumors or trauma. Part of the mandible is removed and the shape of the missing...
