Falling remains a large source of (traumatic) injuries and healthcare costs. Over the past years, different actuators have been developed in the field of wearable robotics to help prevent injuries from falling. To increase the wearability of these systems, the weight of power storage can be decreased with intermittent instead of continuous...

This article presents an experimental setup capable of conducting various experiments. The setup is used to accurately determine the acceleration due to gravity using either the pendulum or free fall experiment, as well as to allow students to conceive and conduct their own experiment. We discuss the design of the setup and the experiments...

Forensic reconstruction and scenario evaluation are crucial in investigations of suspicious deaths related to falls from a height. In such cases, distinguishing between accidental falls, being pushed or jumping is an important but difficult task, since objective methods to do so are currently lacking. This paper explores the possibility of...

As the population aged 65 and above increases, falls among these older adults emerge as a significant public health concern, leading to disabil- ities and economic burdens. Preventative strategies and personalized fall risk assessments are essential for mitigating fall risks. Human Activity Recognition in early fall risk detection by monitoring...

Most of the injuries sustained by cyclists are due to accidents that do not involve other road-users. This type of accident is known as a single-bicycle accident. A bicycle that is more stable may help to reduce the number of single-bicycle accidents. A balance-assist bicycle is developed at the TU Delft in collaboration with Royal Dutch Gazelle...

In the past decades, the workload and the pressure on medical personnel has been growing to an unprecedented peak. This is partly due to the ageing population and the increasing capabilities to be independent at an older age, increasing the age people enter nursing homes. This paper focuses on a novel way to detect incidents that could occur in...

This thesis report, one of a set of two reports, describes a novel way to detect incidents that could occur in the daily life of the elderly. Unlike most systems already implemented in this field, this system does not use any wearable (positioning) sensors and works off an Single Board Computer (SBC).Independent of both of these systems is a...

Subsea rock installation is an offshore engineering process where rocks are placed on the seabed as protection of cables and pipelines and as scour protection. The inclined fallpipebis a new piece of equipment specifically designed to install rocks close to submerged structures. This thesis investigates the processes of the rock flow in and...

Falling is a major cause of morbidity, and is often caused by a decrease in postural stability. A key component of postural stability is whole-body centroidal angular momentum, which can be influenced by control moment gyroscopes. In this proof-of-concept study, we explore the influence of our wearable robotic gyroscopic actuator “GyroPack” on...

Fall risk increases with age, and one-third of adults over 65 years old experience a fall annually. Due to the aging population, the number of falls and related medical costs will progressively increase. Correct prediction of who will fall in the future is necessary to timely intervene in order to prevent falls. Therefore, the aim of this...

Objectives: Before being used in clinical practice, a prediction model should be tested in patients whose data were not used in model development. Previously, we developed the ADFICE_IT models for predicting any fall and recurrent falls, referred as Any_fall and Recur_fall. In this study, we externally validated the models and compared their...

Long-term care is defined as a variety of services designed to meet a person’s health and personal care needs which help people live as independently and safely as possible when they can no longer perform everyday activities on their own. Depending on the needs and social context of the patient, long-term care can be provided in different...

Background: After mild stroke persistent balance limitations may occur, creating a risk factor for fear of falling, falls, and reduced activity levels. Objective. To investigate whether individuals in the chronic phase after mild stroke show balance and gait limitations, elevated fall risk, reduced balance confidence, and physical activity...

This thesis study is intended to research the effects on peak pressure during impact of a deformable structure with a liquid. To find an answer to this question, a novel wedge was designed to perform free fall wedge experiments at the TU Delft. This report describes the progress that lead to answering the research question:<br/><br/>What is the...

The combination of the high number and the consequences of falls in older adults led to the development of fall risk assessments; non-sensor-based and sensor-based. Multiple studies used ML for older adults' fall risk prediction using raw IMU data. This study's objective was to develop a DL algorithm that predicts the fall risk of people living...

Falls are a significant cause of injury-associated deaths. In cases where the events leading up to a fall are unclear, a forensic investigation may be required to uncover the cause. During the forensic reconstruction process, tools for objective scenario evaluation are needed. Computer simulations appear to be a promising tool for reconstructing...
