Background: Suriname is a middle-income country with a multi-ethnic population. Urbanization and ethnicity may be associated with incidence of cerebrovascular disease, but so far this has not been documented for Suriname. The objective of this study was to examine the prevalence of stroke in the capital of Suriname, and its association with...

Short sprints are important components of most wheelchair court sports, since being faster than the opponent often determines keeping ball possession or not. Sprinting capacity is best measured during a field test, allowing the athlete to freely choose push strategies adapted to their own wheelchair setting, physical ability, classification...

To assist speed skaters in improving their skating performance, we would like to provide them with real time feedback on the orientation of the skate within a single stroke. While of course the forces generated by the skater on the ice determine the acceleration of the skater, the orientation of the skate determines in which direction this...

A musculoskeletal model of the hand and wrist can provide valuable biomechanical and neurophysiological insights, relevant for clinicians and ergonomists. Currently, no consistent data-set exists comprising the full anatomy of these upper extremity parts. The aim of this study was to collect a complete anatomical data-set of the hand and wrist,...

Our motivation is increased bronchoscopic diagnostic yield and optimized preparation, for navigated bronchoscopy. In navigated bronchoscopy, virtual 3D airway visualization is often used to guide a bronchoscopic tool to peripheral lesions, synchronized with the real time video bronchoscopy. Visualization during navigated bronchoscopy, the...

The steering behaviour in a driving simulator has a significant influence on a driving realism. This study investigates the influence of the complexity of a steering-system model on the subjective assessment of truck steering feel in on-centre handling. Ten subjects drove a highway task with and without lateral wind disturbance with 4 steering...

(Osteo)chondral defects (OCDs) in the ankle are currently diagnosed with modalities that are not convenient to use in long-term follow-ups. Ultrasound (US) imaging, which is a cost-effective and non-invasive alternative, has limited ability to discriminate OCDs. We aim to develop a new diagnostic technique based on US wave propagation through...

Since there is a lack of functional active two degree of freedom wrist mechanisms for hand prostheses, one is designed in accordance to the needs of the user, such that it can be provided with hand prostheses and used by patients. A list of requirements is used to design a wrist mechanism, after which the prototype is tested to validate the...

After a stroke, patients often need gait rehabilitation training to regain a safe walking pattern to participate in daily activities again. Good gait rehabilitation training comprises high intensity, which can be achieved using support systems, such as treadmills. Research pointed out that there are insufficient support systems for patients with...

Four Wheel Drive (4WD) vehicles are almost as old as the automobile itself, however for more than half a century the main use case of a 4WD system was to improve traction on off-road terrains. The advancement in technology over the recent decades resulted in more advanced and light weight solutions shifting the focus more towards sports cars and...

Vision based interfaces for human computer interaction have gained increasing attention over the past decade. This study presents a data fusion approach of the Nimble VR vision based system, using the Kinect camera, with the contact based 5DT Data Glove. Data fusion was achieved through a Kalman filter. The Nimble VR and filter output were...

Most ground robots deployed in disaster areas have been of limited use mainly because of their reduced mobility in degraded environments. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have considerable mobility benefits over ground robots, however they are currently only used for providing aerial views and often lack any manipulation capabilities, despite...

Pin tract infection is a prevalent complication in treatments with external fixation. This study focused on the external fixation utilized for the knee joint distraction treatment. In a previous study initiated by the UMC Utrecht 85% of the patients got at least one pin tract infection during this treatment. A pin tract infection is caused by...
