Objective: Cemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) demonstrates superior survival rates compared to uncemented procedures. Nevertheless, most younger patients opt for uncemented THA, as removing well-fixed bone cement in the femur during revisions is complex, particularly the distal cement plug. This removal procedure often increases the risk...

Most people are entangled with an ever-growing trail of data that results from their daily interactions with products and services. Yet, they are hardly aware of the nature and characteristics of the data within this trail. We design dataslip, a provocative artifact that materializes the personal data trail into a receipt and aims to elicit...

In Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), a significant challenge lies in the misalignment between available medical equipment and the specific needs of these regions. For example the needs of being adapted to low resource settings. A lot of medical equipment is not adapted to be operated in low-resource settings. This situation has prompted a...

New generative AI systems can make beautiful pictures, but can they help produce functional products? This graduation project investigated the potential for generative AI to aid the design of functional, 3D-printed lamps. <br/>Two studies were conducted to assess the degree to which AI can measurably improve design outputs. An AI-based software...

Boden – a German term that can refer to soil and land, ground and floor, territory and habitat. Overhearing Boden in Berlin’s streets these days will, however, oftentimes result in tuning into a conversation about land ownership, the soaring cost of living and the city in transition. People, it seems, are worried. They are increasingly affected...

Background<br/>The availability of medical ultrasound imaging is still limited in low- and middle-income countries, despite its potential impact on patient outcomes. This problem partially manifests in the limited availability of trained physicians due to the unequal distribution of physicians between rural and urban areas in India. Robotic...
