Nowadays, Dopple's wireless earphones have touch buttons as a user inter-<br/>face, however these take in quite some physical space. Since the earphones<br/>are becoming smaller over the years, there is a need for a new type of touch-<br/>less user interface, that is smaller. In order to create that new user interface,<br/>research is done on...

Background<br/>Elephants that wander onto the fields of farmers in Myanmar are being shot with makeshift guns. By doing this, the farmers are able to make these animals leave the area without killing them. This results in elephants walking around with bullets inside their body and wounds that need to be looked after. Traditional methods for...

Introduction <br/>Pancreatic cancer is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States and has only a 5-year survival rate of 10%. Pancreatoduodenectomy is the cornerstone of curative treatment for patients diagnosed with pancreatic head cancer. Only 20% of the patients are candidate for surgery since many patients...

Predicting the effects of drugs before human clinical trails is at the heart of drug discovery and screening processes. To overcome limitations of conventional models used in pre-clinical research stages, advancements in fabrication, microfluidics, tissue engineering and sensor development allow for platforms that ever more closely emulate human...

Restoration of the normal mandibular form and function is attempted with reconstructive surgery. The current standard procedure to restore continuity defects of the mandible involves free tissue transfer with an autologous bone flap. Even though the success rates are high, several critical drawbacks have been associated with this procedure,...

To this day, liver transplantation is the only effective treatment for end-stage liver failure. Unfortunately, the scarcity of liver donors leads to waitlist mortality, pushing the need for alternative treatment options. In vitro models are essential tools in research on alternatives for transplantation. One of the promising models is the...

Background: Despite the considerable development of the field of orthopedic implants in the past century, complications including poor bone ingrowth and implant associated infection (IAI) persist to this day, causing a huge burden to millions of patients and the healthcare systems worldwide. Additive manufacturing (AM) and the subsequent surface...

The mechanical properties of biological hard-soft interfaces change gradually over a small surface area to prevent the formation of stress concentrations through variations in the interface’s chemical composition, microstructure and geometry. The bone-tendon/ligament and bone-cartilage interface are the most prominent hard-soft interfaces within...

Parkinson’s Disease (PD), Essential tremor (ET), and dystonia are movement disorders often misdiagnosed as one another and commonly present tremor as one of their motor symptoms. Rates of misdiagnosis between 30 and 50% of ET patients have been reported, where dystonia and PD are the most common missed diagnoses. Additionally, up to 50% of...

Infant shaking can cause serious damage (inflicted head injury by shaking trauma), it’s occurrence indicates the necessity for infant protection. To ensure reliable jurisprudence, it is important to know the exact consequences of shaking on an infant’s body. These consequences can be researched by the use of an anthropomorphic shake doll. With...

Classification of pitch types outside the laboratory or game environment provide benefits in designing and outlining training routines to reduce injury and improve performance. Current classification approaches are based on vision-based optical data, however these optical data is often not available in training sessions. The aim of the current...

Problem: A biomarker that accurately predicts recovery of ischemic stroke for patients with poor baseline Fugl-Meyer Assessment of the Upper Extremity (FMA-UE) is lacking. Biomarkers that predict recovery while providing functional insight into the underlying neural process are highly desired for optimal clinical care. Objectives: This...

Introduction: Amputees may be eligible to use a socket or osseointegrated (OI) prosthesis after losing a limb. A lot is known about the stump-socket interface in transtibial (TT) amputees. However, there are hardly any articles that explain the load transfers between the tibia and an OI prosthesis. For this reason, this study will focus on the...

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is an upcoming therapeutic tool to improve post-stroke upper extremity motor function by modulating cortical excitability. However, research shows mixed findings on tDCS in stroke patients. The functional and structural brain reorganization may explain the mixed findings: (i) The individual motor...

Laparoscopic suturing is one of the most difficult and time-consuming tasks in laparoscopic surgery. The long instrument shafts, two-dimensional view, and limited space for movement make simple actions, such as grasping and manipulating the needle and thread, difficult in the laparoscopic setting. To simplify the suturing process, the Hornet...

The increase in the average human lifespan and the higher prevalence of extreme sports communities in the current society has led to an unfortunate increase in bone defect and fracture cases. Consequently, there is a growing demand for bone fracture therapy and technology. In the case of orthopaedic implants, research has been gradually...

Many interesting designs of soft robots with variablestiffness capabilities have been presented in the literature. However, little attention has been given on the control of their embedded physical intelligence. In this work, we present an algorithm that exploits the variablejoint stiffness capabilities and the redundancy of a soft manipulator...

The forensic investigation is one of the first steps in the criminal investigation process concerning home invasion robberies. The forensic investigation consists of objectively capturing the crime scene as it is when starting the investigation. Regarding home invasion robberies, the most important traces are fingerprints and DNA which are used...

Myocardial ischaemia induced by cardioplegia is the most prominent risk during open-heart surgery. To achieve adequate protection of the cardiomyocytes during surgery, the cardioplegia must arrive at all cardiomyocytes. Local obstruction can lead to regional ischaemia. For surgeons and perfusionist, the arrested heart is a black box. They know...
