Objective: The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate a 3D printed hydraulic actuation system, applied in a multi-articulate upper limp prosthesis. The prosthesis was designed to produce sufficient pinch force to be competitive with comparable devices (30 N), and weigh less than a human hand (<0.43 kg). The actuator should...

When designing for structural performance, the geometry of the load-bearing elements is crucial for achieving the required stability. This is even more important in structural forms, such as shells and arches that are predominantly designed by their structural requirements. However, the typical design process starts with the design by the...

This PhD project explored how the use of 3D printing can support design in a circular economy. 3D printing is an emerging technology and is viewed as a promising production process for the circular economy because of its unique additive and digital character. The aim of design in a circular economy is to preserve the value of products and...

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is undergoing a radical evolution. AM businesses such as Ultimaker (UM) are speeding up industrial production through digital design and local manufacturing to enable industries to produce “what they need, where they need it, and when they need it” (“Ultimaker”, 2019), while also being cost-effective. AM is perceived...

Back pain is a major economic problem that can dramatically affect the quality of life. There are many causes that can lead to back pain, but intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration is a recognised cause. The harmful effect of whole-body vibration (WBV) environment on the human intervertebral disc has been demonstrated to have an increased...

Osteoarthritis, the degeneration of articular cartilage, which causes loss of mobility and chronic pain for patients is a common condition with high clinical demand. Care of this condition currently attributes to ±1.4% of the Dutch annual health care costs, but due to the rapidly aging Dutch population a 41% increase of cases is projected over...

Introduction<br/>Transparent facial pressure masks with silicone sheeting are used as a non-invasive treatment option for hypertrophic scarring following oncological facial reconstruction. These masks are fabricated using conventional plaster moulds, which is labour-intensive and requires an experienced orthotist or prosthetist. 3D scanning and...

The use of 3D printing technology in manufacturing environments has experienced rapid growth. Manufacturers have realised the potential of the technology. 3D printing enables the reduction of costs and lead-times of parts, components and tools used in production processes. Adoption of this technology is facing various challenges. A major...

Stiffened shells and plates are widely used in engineering, but their performance is highly influenced by the arrangement, or layout, of stiffeners on the base shell or plate and the geometric features, or topology, of these stiffeners. Moreover, structures with modules are beneficial, since it allows for increased quality control and more...

Background: Last decades myoelectric prostheses have become more usable, functional and reliable. Yet, the cost of myoelectric upper limb prostheses are still a hindering factor of widespread usage of the prostheses. In developing countries, where the demand for prostheses is relatively higher, commercial myoelectric prostheses are out of reach...

Glass is a material which can be seen as a double-edged sword. Its monolithic, smooth, and transparent look transmits a sense of elegance and simplicity. However, due to its brittle mechanical property, it can create complex engineering challenges when intended for a structural load-bearing application. Many forget glass has a comparable...

The preservation and restoration of intricate stucco ornaments, which are part of our collect cultural Heritage, is under threat due to a diminishing number of skilled restoration plasterers. The highly physically demanding- and labour intensive nature of this work makes it unsustainable for the human body and advocates for a more sustainable...
