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...

The baseball pitch is a repetitive, full-body throwing motion that exposes the elbow to significant loads, leading to a high incidence of elbow injuries. Elbow injuries in pitching are often attributed to high external valgus torques as these are generally considered to be a good proxy for the load on the Ulnar Collateral Ligament. The aim of...

Road traffic crash is a global tragedy that leads to economic loss, injury, and fatalities. Understanding the severity of a road crash at the early stages is vital to timely providing emergency medical services to crash victims. This study developed a crash emergency response management framework that requires basic crash information for...

Shoulder injuries, prevalent worldwide, often occur from ageing and accidents. In Western countries, these injuries primarily afflict the elderly population, while in rural regions of Bangladesh, Iran, India, and Pakistan, they affect younger individuals who are often the family's primary earners. Due to that, preventing and aiding the recovery...

Traffic barrier crashes have been a major concern in many prior studies in traffic safety literature, especially in the crash-prone sections of mountainous regions. However, the effect of factors affecting the injury-severities resulting from crashes involving different types of traffic barriers may be different. This paper provides an...

Goal: Nerve injury is a typical complication of a fasciectomy, a surgical treatment for Dupuytren's contracture. This research focuses on the creation of a surgical device to prevent this medical complication.<br/>Design: A mechanical feedforward-based device with a spreading and cutting mechanism was proposed. Stretching the target tissue...

Spinal cord injury(SCI) is a life-altering event that often leads to wheelchair confinement and a lifetime of secondary health complications. Gait orthoses aim to restore mobility and improve the quality of life for these individuals. However, they are often rejected due to the high energy expenditure required by the individual. This project...

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...

BACKGROUND: Rising UCL injury rates at both amateur and professional levels have been linked to fatigue in baseball pitchers. Repeated pitching has been associated with changes to kinematics, kinetics, and perceived fatigue, but no statistical model exists which incorporates all the most common aspects of fatigue into one framework. Confirmatory...

Muscle overload injuries in strength training might be prevented by providing personalized feedback about muscle load during a workout. In the present study, a new muscle load feedback application, which monitors and visualizes the loading of specific muscle groups, was developed in collaboration with the fitness company Gymstory. The aim of the...

Daily wheelchair ambulation is seen as a risk factor for shoulder problems, which are prevalent in manual wheelchair users. To examine the long-term effect of shoulder load from daily wheelchair ambulation on shoulder problems, quantification is required in real-life settings. In this study, we describe and validate a comprehensive and...

Truck-involved crashes, especially truck-car crashes, are associated with serious and even fatal injuries, thus necessitating an in-depth analysis. Prior research focused solely on examining the injury severity of truck drivers or developed separate performance models for truck and car drivers. However, the severity of injuries to both...

Background: In the past decade, there has been substantial progress in the development of robotic controllers that specify how lower-limb exoskeletons should interact with brain-injured patients. However, it is still an open question which exoskeleton control strategies can more effectively stimulate motor function recovery. In this review,...

Child abuse, irrespective of the type of child abuse, probably is the most prevalent risk factor for the development of children. Physical abuse is the type of abuse with the highest risk of infliction of injuries. The most injured organ due to physical abuse is the skin, with bruises being the most prevalent cutaneous injury. Other cutaneous...

<b>Introduction</b> Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of childhood morbidity, disability and mortality worldwide. In the treatment of TBI, neuromonitoring is essential to prevent secondary neurological damage. However, the use of neuromonitoring and specifically therapeutic targets is currently limited evidence-based.<br/><b...

Of all reported cases, muscular pain in the arms is the second main cause of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) in European workers. The most popular prevention method for shoulder-related WMSDs are passive shoulder exoskeletons, as of their light weight and ease of use. Yet, due to their static force-angle characteristic, passive...

Medial elbow overuse injuries are rising in baseball. The external valgus torque magnitude is a possible risk factor for medial elbow injuries. The magnitude on its own cannot explain why one pitcher sustains an injury and another does not. Therefore, the aim of this study is to describe the within-individual external valgus torque variability...
