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...

This thesis aimed to validate Beekman's patent on how collimation could virtually reduce the focal spot size of an existing small-animal cone beam Computed Tomography (CT) system to diminish the penumbra effect. The ever-remaining drive to improve the spatial resolution in CT for enhanced image quality introduces the need for small focal spot...

Abstract—Background: Vacuum extraction is a way to prevent unnecessary maternal deaths, by using a vacuum extractor to help deliver the baby in the second stage of labour. Vacuum extraction is still little-used in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) compared to high-income countries, due to the lack of sufficient devices on the market that...

Numerous advancements have been made in transparent electrode technologies that can complement optogenetics and imaging modalities. However, several obstacles restrict the design and material of electrode devices, including the required flexibility, transparency, low impedance, high charge storage<br/>capacity (CSC), and high charge injection...

A congenital heart defect (CHD) is an anomaly in the structure of the heart that is present at birth. In the last 15 years, a CHD is present in 9 per 1,000 live births, making it the most prevalent birth defect (Linde et al., 2011). <br/>CHD’s prevalence coupled with its inherent complexity culminates into situations that are both complicated...

Percutaneous needle procedures (PNPs) are minimally invasive procedures that use imaging guidance to diagnose or treat medical conditions. In the treatment of liver cancer, PNPs are becoming increasingly used due to their shorter recovery times and lower complication rates. However, needle placement during PNPs can be challenging due to a lack...

The operating rooms (OR) in hospitals is a complex system, with a high number of innovations every year. Therefore the healthcare professionals (HCPs) are required to choose between the several aspects and innovations for the OR. Decision-making requires a mutual vision (Littlejohn et al., 2017) and should be based on evidence (Turner et al.,...

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...

Biomedical micro-electromechanical systems or BioMEMS are microdevices with actuation or sensory function in biomedical applications. In this process, polymers are widely used as material layers. Polymers have significant advantages for applications in BioMEMS, such as low cost and ease of fabrication.<br/>The problem at the moment is the lack...

Skateboarding involves a human controlling a four wheeled vehicle that is steered by tilting the standing surface. The riding mechanics of skateboarding have been well reported [2, 3]. The sport also includes aerial maneuvers such as jumping of stairs, flying off ramps and flipping and rotating the skateboard. The most basic aerial trick is...

Organs-on-Chips (OoCs) are micro-engineered devices in which small samples of human-organ tissue are cultured on the substrate. A chip is designed in such a way that it can emulate the in-vivo physiological environment for disease modeling and drug screening. OoC technology can be incorporated into the drug development process from early drug...

Introduction – Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the world with one in three succumbing to the disease. The most common cardiovascular disease is coronary artery disease, caused by atherosclerosis resulting in a build-up of plaque within the arteries. This plaque can progress into a vulnerable plaque, which has been...

<b>Background</b><br/>Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) with a Cobb angle larger than 45° is a spinal deformity that needs surgical treatment to stop progression and reduce pain. Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure where rods are attached to the spine through screws to diminish the Cobb angle.<br/><b>Objective</b><br/>The metal rods are...

Glioma progression is monitored by routine MR scanning, enabling tumor growth evaluation with respect to earlier time-points. This growth may present both as a mass effect and as an extension of abnormalities into previously healthy tissue. To accurately quantify tumor growth and tumor-induced deformations, longitudinal intrasubject image...

According to the WHO, falls are responsible for over 38 million disability-adjusted life years lost each year, globally. Additionally, an estimated 684.000 individuals die of falling each year, making it the second leading cause of unintentional death. One of the most effective physical activity interventions to reduce the risk of falling, is...

The large intestines, or colon, is the last part of the digestive tract before the rectum. Colorectal cancer is one of the main reasons that patients need a colon resection. A colon resection is a surgery in which the malignant part of the colon is removed. After removal of the tumor, the two ends of the colon need to be reattached, also called...

Breast cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer among women, leading to 2.3 million new diagnosis and almost 685,000 deaths in 2020. Currently, one of the preferred treatments is breast conserving surgery (BCS), but its success depends on the correct identification of tumor margins during surgery. A promising optical intraoperative margin...
