Introduction. Ultrasound is known for cheap, fast and non-invasive diagnosis of numerous injuries. Sport-related injuries in the ankle joint and rehabilitation after surgical intervention are badly diagnosable using traditional ultrasound. Bones surrounding the surface of the articular cartilage blocks the ultrasound pulse and hides the talar...

Ultrasound imaging is known to be non-invasive, fast, and cost-effective. However, a drawback is its reflection on bone. Therefore, an alternative acoustic wave propagating technique is being developed that eventually should be able to diagnose osteochondral defects (OCDs) that are now often missed with conventional imaging techniques. A novel...

Ankle injuries are one of the most common sports injuries that often lead to further complications such as cartilage defects. Recovery from these injuries can take a long time and a solution that could aid in the rehabilitation of these injuries is beneficial to the young and active patient group. The goal of this study is to design a device...

A flexible bone drill provides advantages over conventional rigid instruments, because it allows surgical access via a minimally invasive approach. A new concept is to achieve this using hydropower. Hydropower could provide the advantage of energy transfer via a compliant hose through which pressurized water is flowing. The goal is to design a...

Windsurfers currently do not wear neoprene gloves when sailing in cold temperatures, as discomfort rapidly develops in the forearms when doing so. Lack of good protection against low temperatures means the hands get painfully cold and numb, limiting sailing time and pleasure. ElectroMyoGraphy (EMG) measurements were done on four forearm muscles...

Sit-snowboards allow a person with the inability to actively use his/her legs to snowboard while sitting. However, existing prototypes do not allow using a chairlift. The goal of this study was to modify a prototype sit-snowboard, MINI, to add chairlift accessibility. MINI has a seat construction and two handlebars which allow the user to steer...

Background: An ablation catheter with integrated high-frequency single element ultrasound transducers has been developed by Philips Research, which makes it possible to assess tissue-depth and lesion formation in real-time. The interpretation of the acquired ultrasound M-mode images is difficult due to a combination of cardiac motion and motion...

Abstract - When surgically drilling blind holes in bone using a Water Jet (WJ), control over the resulting depth is a challenging issue of paramount concern. This thesis was part of a project aimed at replacing the awl and mallet technique used in traditional microfracture procedures with an arthroscopic high-pressure WJ instrument is capable of...

To improve arthroscopic skills, orthopaedic residents train on medical simulators and cadaveric training courses. Some medical simulators provide feedback while cadaveric specimen offer the most realistic training environments. Providing objective feedback while training on cadaveric specimen will be an major improvement to the cadaveric...

The currently performed corrective distal radius osteotomy procedures show several complications, such as tendon irritation and tendon rupture, due to friction with implemented fixation implants. This study focused on the development of a new fixation implant for positioning and fixation of bone segments for corrective osteotomy, that ensures a...

The aim of this study was to investigate if motion performance metrics for minimally invasive surgery could be derived from a two-dimensional measurement, for surgical procedures in which the movements are restricted to a defined plane. As it was assumed that for arthroscopy in the knee such behavior is present, a knee arthroscopy simulator was...

Meniscectomy is a medical procedure where ruptured meniscal tissue is removed within the knee joint. The con- ventional cutters fail to reach the entire meniscus. Therefore, the focus of this study is to create a cutter with a steerable tip, which allows sideway steering to increase the reacha- bility within the knee joint. Additionally, this...

Patients with foot deformation, cartilage wear or a badly healed calcaneus fracture often suffer from severe pain in the foot. After fixation of the subtalar joint, which stabilizes motion, most patients can walk without pain again. Because the curtent operation is an open approach, it is difficult to reach the entire joint space and to remove...
