Manual wheelchair users, especially those with spinal cord injuries, often suffer from shoulder overuse and pain. Understanding the specific role of the muscles involved in wheelchair propulsion is essential to prevent these complications. Yet, there is uncertainty about which muscles are primarily recruited, and their contribution to propulsion...

Anterior cruciate ligament tears are a common injury, with over two million people affected annually. Typically, magnetic resonance imaging is used to diagnose the injury, but this technique is less sensitive in evaluating incomplete or concomitant injuries. Four-dimensional computed tomography is a relatively new technique that can become...

Introduction: During the sit-to-stand (STS) motion, thigh push-of (TP) is frequently used, yet the biomechanical advantage for the upper extremity, is relatively unknown. In this thesis, the STS motion is analyzed for three different techniques; TP, armrest push-off (AP), and no arm aid (NA). The aim of this study is to determine the...

As the indoor cycling trainer industry keeps innovating, a cycling trainer that has a similar longitudinal motion to outdoor cycling does not yet exist. Therefore, this thesis aimed to design a simulator controller that can actively simulate longitudinal cycling motion and assess its performance in translating outdoor longitudinal cycling...

BACKGROUND: Rising UCL injury rates at both amateur and professional levels have been linked to fatigue in baseball pitchers. Repeated pitching has been associated with changes to kinematics, kinetics, and perceived fatigue, but no statistical model exists which incorporates all the most common aspects of fatigue into one framework. Confirmatory...

The first aim of this master thesis is to explore whether the normal force on the castor wheels can be estimated from IMU data using a machine learning approach. The second aim is to evaluate whether incorporating the changing load distribution due to trunk movement could improve the friction power estimation compared with neglecting changes in...

The ability of musculoskeletal models to acquire metrics and simulate human motion enables researchers to perform biomechanical analysis of daily activities. The improved analysis of human motion could for instance help recognize physical decline early. The sit-to-stand movement, which is performed 60 times daily on average, is one greatly...

The study of human motion consists of the analysis of kinematics, dealing with joint angles, velocities and accelerations, and kinetics, which deals with joint torques and interaction forces. Traditionally, kinematics and kinetics are estimated from optical marker data and sometimes measured interaction forces. Inertial measurement units (IMUs)...

Introduction Fractures of the diaphysis of the radius and/or ulna are most common in children from 5 to14 years old and take up to 40% of all pediatric fractures. Patients with a diaphyseal fracture of the forearm can develop a malunion: healing of the bones in non-anatomical position. This can lead to pain, cosmetic differences and a limitation...

Atherosclerosis is a cardiovascular disease in the arteries and a primary cause of death in the industrialized world. Most deaths due to atherosclerosis occur when the fibrous cap covering the necrotic core ruptures, leading to a blood clot. To determine whether an atherosclerotic plaque will rupture requires the development of accurate...

Background:<br/>Many professional violin players develop pain complaints in neck and shoulder regions as a result of prolonged practices containing highly repetitive motions and awkward postures. These complaints are often diagnosed as overuse syndrome, where physical changes are not apparent and of which the etiology is not yet understood....

Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)-based motion capture has gained interest over the years due to its potential to measure human movement in the clinic and on the sports field at low cost. Still, IMU-based motion reconstruction remains a challenging task as these IMU measurements are corrupted by noise and bias. There have been many filtering and...

In baseball, pitchers have a high rate of throwing arm injury, which could lead to disability and less training time. This paper aims at investigating whether upcoming injuries of youth baseball pitchers can be detected before the athlete experiences injury symptoms. A total of 118 elite youth baseball pitchers from the Dutch national baseball...

Technology is being used more and more to aid elite athletes in improving their performance. Recently there have been promising developments in the research using IMUs regarding wheelchair rugby and basketball. Applying this same measurement setup to wheelchair tennis could give better insight in the wheelchair mobility of wheelchair tennis...

A musculoskeletal model of the shoulder region, which uses kinematic data as an input an estimates muscle forces and joint loads as an output, can give valuable information on the pitching motion. This helps us to get more insight into the pitching motion and its biomechanical interactions and may also help in reducing the injury risk and...
