In this work, we propose a method for monitoring and management of rotator-cuff tendon strains in human-robot collaborative physical therapy for rotator cuff rehabilitation. The proposed approach integrates a complex offline biomechanical model with a collaborative, industrial robot arm and an impedance controller. The model is used for...

Background: The ability to measure joint kinematics in natural environments over long durations using inertial measurement units (IMUs) could enable at-home monitoring and personalized treatment of neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. However, drift, or the accumulation of error over time, inhibits the accurate measurement of movement...

Introduction During Bicycle Motocross races (BMX SX), the start has been proven to be crucial for good overall performance [1]. Riders reaching the bottom of the eight meter high starting ramp in front of the pack, have a favorable position to perform the first jump and can pick the most ideal line through the first corner. The chances of...

Background:<br/>Many professional violin players develop pain complaints in neck and shoulder regions as a result of prolonged practices containing highly repetitive motions and awkward postures. These complaints are often diagnosed as overuse syndrome, where physical changes are not apparent and of which the etiology is not yet understood....

Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)-based motion capture has gained interest over the years due to its potential to measure human movement in the clinic and on the sports field at low cost. Still, IMU-based motion reconstruction remains a challenging task as these IMU measurements are corrupted by noise and bias. There have been many filtering and...

Ergonomics of human workers is one of the key elements in design and evaluation of production processes. Human ergonomics have a major impact on productivity as well as chronic health risks incurred by inappropriate working postures and conditions. In this paper we propose a novel method for estimating and communicating the ergonomic work...

The development of the pole vaulting record is only improved by 1 centimeter over the last 25 years. Multiple studies show signs of different control strategies in elite pole vaulters, without pointing out what the cause of the differences is The aim of this research is to explore pole vaulting strategies by a control torque optimization. The...

Atherosclerosis is a progressive arterial disease in which fatty tissue accumulates in the arterial wall. Due to this lipid uptake, the artery thickens and can eventually rupture, causing the lipids to flow into the bloodstream and form blood clots. If this happens in the carotid arteries, which supply the head with oxygenated blood, a stroke...

Ice-skating is a rather special form of locomotion: the skater pushes sideward to propel himself forward; Insight in the details of this technique can help a speed skater improve his performance. The aim of this thesis is to develop a reliable and valid three-dimensional biomechanical model that simulates the motion of a speed skater, to gain...
