To reduce the mortality rate of sepsis, treatment needs to be started as soon as possible. One should however first be sure about the occurrence of sepsis. Currently, the suspicion of sepsis in premature infants is based on non-specific physiological changes. The detection of alterations in the inter-heartbeat interval preceding sepsis can offer...

Due to the increasing prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes, the occurrence of liver disease has also increased. In the last decade, important improvements have been realised in methods to treat liver disease, especially in the field of image-guided minimally invasive procedures. With the rapidly developing field of minimally invasive...

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...

This study focused on a new method to find accurate performance measures of a mediolateral centre of mass(CoM)-controlled visual tracking task, which might be sensitive enough to detect problems in balance control early on. Visual tracking tasks, controlled by mediolateral CoM displacement, have shown promising results in this respect. The task...

A human with muscle weakness can wear a rehabilitation device, e.g. exoskeleton, to receive support during walking. How can this support be adjusted in real-time to the intention of the user? The given support should be intuitive, user-specific, compliant and robust to sensor noise. We suggest the use of an adaptive oscillator, which can detect...

Purpose: Executing the sideward skating push-off requires a skater’s full attention and capabilities. Ankle eversion (AE) occurs during the push-off with skaters of low and high skill levels. Controlling AE requires high muscle force. AE adds unnecessary stress thus fatigue is a likely consequence. A purpose for AE in speed skating has not yet...

Sometimes children are born with (part of) an arm missing. Next to congenital loss, children or adults can loose their arm due to an accident or illness. The missing arm can be replaced with a prosthesis, connected to the arm remnant by a socket. Existing sockets tend to have a hot and humid climate and some sockets are difficult to don and doff...
