Energy harvesting has gained lots of interest over the past few decades. This study explores the application of energy harvesting in lower limb prosthetic devices. The control system of a lower limb prosthesis includes sensors, wireless<br/>systems and other active components which all require battery power. In order to save some of this battery...

In this work, we propose a method of processing patient input on discomfort level during robot shoulder physiotherapy into discomfort maps. These maps represent the patient's discomfort distribution throughout the range of motion of the shoulder, interpretable by both physiotherapists and robots. This method consists of three parts: the patient...

Inflicted shaking trauma can cause injury in infants, but exact injury mechanisms remain unclear. Controversy exists, particularly in courts, whether additional causes such as impact are required to produce injuries found in cases of (suspected) shaking. Publication rates of studies on animal and biomechanical models of inflicted head injury...

Orthotic wrist supports will be beneficial for people with muscular weakness to keep their hand in a neutral rest position and prevent potential wrist contractures. Compensating the weight of the hands is complex since the level of support depends on both wrist and forearm orientations. To explore simplified approaches, two different weight...

Exoskeletons that assist in ankle plantarflexion can improve energy economy in locomotion. Characterizing the joint-level mechanisms behind these reductions in energy cost can lead to a better understanding of how people interact with these devices, as well as to improved device design and training protocols. We examined the biomechanical...

Biomechanics studies the underlying mechanisms between body movements and forces. Accurate motion data is crucial for the biomechanics. Currently, marker-based motion capture systems are often used by researchers to record motion data. Marker-based motion capture systems are not widely adopted due to its drawbacks in terms of financial and time...

The thumb finger is indispensable for an independent daily life. Implant replacement, which aims to restore joint mobility and functionality, is one of the surgical treatments for patients with osteoarthritis at the thumb-base. However, current designs and the biomechanical understanding of the thumb-base joint are inadequate. Small bone size,...

Human 3D kinematics estimation involves measuring joint angles and body segment scales to quantify and analyze the mechanics of human movements. It has applications in areas such as injury prevention, disease identification, and sports science. Conventional marker-based motion capture methods are expensive both in terms of financial investment...

Much research is conducted on the biomechanical properties of cells, particularly in cancer research. Cell stiffness and cell adhesion are two properties often studied, because they are important for the functioning of a cell. To study these properties, atomic force microscopy(AFM) is often used, using nanoindentation for stiffness analysis and...

This paper investigates the effect of intrinsic muscle stiffness on neural control parameters in biological musculoskeletal control of stabilisation or reaching tasks. Current model implementations of intrinsic muscle properties are highly simplified, limiting their accuracy in replicating experimental short-range stiffness (SRS) behaviour,...

The Dutch speedskating federation expressed the need for a feedback system for elite long-track speedskaters that can aid them in finding the optimal technique for an individual athlete. To contribute to this goal, this research aims to develop an optimization workflow that can reproduce realistic steady state speedskating behaviour. This is...

A baseball pitch is an explosive and dynamic motion during which one of the highest angular rates achieved by the human body in sports activity was noted. The nature of the baseball pitch puts shoulder structures at risk, and one of the most common injuries among pitchers is a rotator cuff tear, frequently connected with internal impingement. It...

Purpose: To create an updated and comprehensive overview of the modeling studies that have been done to understand the mechanics underlying deformities of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS), to predict the risk of curve progression and thereby substantiate etiopathogenetic theories. Methods: In this systematic review, an online search in...

Background: The primary aim of this study was to determine and compare the biomechanical properties of a fractured or intact rib after implant fixation on an embalmed thorax. Methods: Five systems were fixated on the bilateral fractured or intact (randomly allocated) 6th to 10th rib of five post-mortem embalmed human specimens. Each rib...

Powered flight was once a capability limited only to animals, but by identifying useful attributes of animal flight and building on these with technological advances, engineers have pushed the frontiers of flight beyond our predecessors’ wildest imaginations. Yet, there remain many key characteristics of biological flight that elude current...

Background: Upper limb impairments in a hemiparetic arm are clinically quantified by well-established clinical scales, known to suffer poor validity, reliability, and sensitivity. Alternatively, robotics can assess motor impairments by characterizing joint dynamics through system identification. In this study, we establish the merits of...

Orthopedic plates are commonly used after osteotomies for temporary fixation of bones. Patient-specific plates have recently emerged as a promising fixation device. However, it is unclear how various strategies used for the design of such plates perform in comparison with each other. Here, we compare the biomechanical performance of 3D...

INTRODUCTION: Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects to some degree approximately 52% of the male population aged 40-70 years. Many men do not respond to, or are precluded from using, pharmaceutical treatments for ED and are therefore advised to consider penile prostheses. Different types of penile prosthesis are available, such as inflatable...

To maximize effects of dorsal leaf ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) on gait in people with bilateral plantarflexor weakness, the AFO properties should be matched to the individual. However, how AFO properties interact regarding their effect on gait function is unknown. We studied the interaction of AFO bending stiffness with neutral angle and...
