Myoelectric as well as body-powered hand prostheses, the two commercially available prosthetic control types, have both their specific advantages. Advanced myoelectric prostheses for example have the characteristic of facilitating multiple degrees of freedom due to grip type variation and/or wrist movements. Compared to prosthetic devices with...

Background: Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) gained increasing support in the surgical community over the last decades. Due to the rigid tip of current used rigid instruments the maneuverability is limited during a procedure. To increase maneuverability steerable instruments have been developed. However current handheld steerable instruments...

Introduction: Preterm neonates suffer frequent thermal alterations that result in increased morbidity and mortality rates. Thermal support is used to provide stability until thermal maturation is reached. The first manifestation of thermal control is peripheral vasoconstriction, estimated as the difference between central and peripheral...

The design of the ordinary bicycle has barely changed since the end of the 19th century. Until then it evolved to a well ridable machine with no need for further drastic modifications. However, around 2011 it was shown that, just like an ordinary bicycle, strange appearing designs could also be stable. One of these designs was a bicycle that...

DNA can function as a significant part of evidence in forensic investigation, because it can link a potential perpetrator to a crime. Even by skin contact, micro-traces of DNA-containing material can be transferred. This type of DNA is called ‘trace DNA’. When DNA is collected from an evidentiary item for forensic purposes, the goal is to...

Introduction: In this study, a novel anthropomorphic head phantom for quantitative image quality assessment in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is proposed. The phantom is composed of tissue equivalent materials (TEMs) which are suitable for ‘ home made’ fabrication methods such as silicone casting and 3D printing and equipped with inserts...

Current endoscopic devices cause great discomfort to the patient because they need to be pushed from outside the patient to manoeuvre through the intestine. Self-propelling endo- scopic concepts have been proposed, but these cause unnecessary trauma to the patient or are unable to travel to the end of the large intestine and back. This study...

It has often been shown that performance and learning in movement tasks may be improved by focusing on the effect of the movement in the environment (external focus of attention) instead of the movement itself (internal focus of attention). Nevertheless, most coaching instructions and feedback information given in sports seem to favor an...

The aim of this study was to determine to what extent mobility performance is influenced by offensive or defensive situations and ball possession and to what extent these actions are different for the field positions. From video analysis, the relative duration of the various wheelchair movements during team offense/defense and individual ball...

Small nerve fibers regulate local skin blood flow in response to local thermal perturbations. Small nerve fiber function is difficult to assess with classical neurophysiological tests. In this study, a vasomotor response model in combination with a heating protocol was developed to quantitatively characterize the control mechanism of small...

Finger enslaving is defined as the inability of the fingers to move or to produce force independently. Such finger enslaving has predominantly been investigated for isometric force tasks. The aim of this study was to assess whether the extent of force enslaving is dependent on relative finger movements. Ten right-handed subjects (22–30 years)...

New surgical techniques and technology have simplified laparoscopic hysterectomy and have enhanced the safety of this procedure. However, the surgical colpotomy step has not been addressed. This study evaluates the surgical colpotomy step in laparoscopic hysterectomy with respect to difficulty and duration. Furthermore, it proposes an...

Background: Aseptic loosening [AL] of cementless implants is causing approximately 60% of total knee and total hip arthroplasty revisions. AL is caused among other factors by micromotion. The result is that the bone around the prosthesis is replaced by a fibrous membrane. This fibrous membrane allows for more micromotion and we thus enter a...

The structural response of active skeletal muscle is derived from a combination of sarcomere contraction properties, collagen fibres in the connective tissue, and incompressibility. The role of collagen tissues could be substantial but is still not completely understood. Only few studies have looked into the functionality of collagen...

Vestibular information from both sides of the head converges within the vestibular nuclei to contribute to postural stabilization of the head and body, and to provide accurate perceptions of self-motion. It remains uncertain whether these responses are evoked through equivalent integration processes, because our perception of head position is...
