The pitching motion is an asymmetric action by which coordination of scapular rotation in the dominant arm might be affected in time and in comparison with the non-dominant arm. The study aimed to compare asymmetry and the evolution of scapular upward rotation over a one-year period. Data were collected twice, before and after a one-year...

In baseball pitching, biomechanical parameters have been linked to ball velocity and potential injury risk. However, although the features of a biomechanical model have a significant influence on the kinematics and kinetics of a motion, this influence have not been assessed for pitching. The aim of this study was to evaluate the choice of the...

To improve our understanding on the neuromechanics of finger movements, a comprehensive musculoskeletal model is needed. The aim of this study was to build a musculoskeletal model of the hand and wrist, based on one consistent data set of the relevant anatomical parameters. We built and tested a model including the hand and wrist segments, as...

The aim of this study was to develop and describe a wheelchair mobility performance test in wheelchair basketball and to assess its construct validity and reliability. To mimic mobility performance of wheelchair basketball matches in a standardised manner, a test was designed based on observation of wheelchair basketball matches and expert...

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine most prevalent in adolescent females. As the etiology is often unknown, treatment focusses on preventing curve progression and ranges from observation for mild cases to brace treatment and eventually surgery for the worst cases. This report consists of three different studies, which are...

Many falls occur in speed skating, most of which end up in protective padding that is placed along the ice rink. In this research project a testing method was established that can be used to test the influence of different padding parameters on the performance of the padding in relation to the skaters’ injury risks. An existing numerical model...

Tensegrity robots are researched for robotic locomotion, as they have remarkable properties which makes them well suited for physical interaction with unknown and unstructured environments. So far, locomotion on rough terrain has not been demonstrate, but only on flat and moderately hilly terrain. Moreover, research merely focuses on rolling and...

The implant associated infections (IAI) have been identified as one of the primary causes of bone implant failures. A novel silver based antimicrobial surface produced on Ti6Al7Nb substrates by plasma electrolytic oxidation was developed to tackle IAI . The effect of steam, dry and Ultra Violet (photocatalytical) sterilisation on this novel...

Driven by rising health care costs due to factors including advancing technology and an aging population, cost-effectiveness has become an increasingly important aspect of care delivery, with the operating room (OR) being a specific area of interest. By means of a surgical process model (SPM), OR systems can gain an understanding of clinical...

Abstract Pilot study Introduction: Falls are a primary cause of accidental deaths, serious injuries, dependency and society costs. The response to perturbations could identify how well persons are able to reject perturbations. The aim of the study was to compare four different medio-lateral swing perturbations in order to select the most...

Background: Ductoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure, using a sub millimeter fiber optical camera, to explore the mammary ductal epithelium for Pathological Nipple Discharge (serous fluid discharged from the milk duct) and breast cancer, detecting lesions up to eight years before other modalities. Although ductoscopy can revolutionize breast...

The field of upper limb prosthetics focuses on the development of artificial replacement devices for upper limb loss, from partial finger loss to amputation of the entire arm at the shoulder. Hand and hook prostheses are designed to replace the functionality of a missing hand and can be powered either by external sources (e.g. electricity) or by...

Nanotopography has the ability to induce osteogenic differentiation of human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (hMSCs) without the addition of chemical supplements. Understanding of the early mechanisms that interact at the membrane-topography interface and subsequently induce the osteogenic differentiation of hMSCs as a result of nanotopography is key to...

Sealing constructions are frequently used in reusable instruments to prevent the loss of fluids or gasses in a construction by obstructing flow through the glands in the interface of two or more separate parts, and may be applied to seal patients' body fluids. Patient material contains various types of microorganisms, and with the increase of...

Introduction: Diarrhoea is currently the second major cause of child mortality, which mostly affects children in developing countries. Dehydration is the major risk involved with diarrhoea, which is therefore the actual cause of death in most cases. Currently there are no cheap and reliable methods for assessing dehydration, while dehydration...
