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...

The number of cardiac patients (people with heart problems) is growing all the time. Given that any person who encounters a cardiac condition should undergo cardiac rehabilitation (CR), a program to rehabilitate the heart and learn to manage it in daily life, it is expected that the health system will also grow exponentially in order to meet the...

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...

Space Mission Sanitas is a game-based health intervention to help cardiac patients maintain their physical activity level after cardiac rehabilitation. Often people find it hard to maintain their physical activity level after cardiac rehabilitation. They face different barriers that lower their motivation, resulting in an unhealthy lifestyle...

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is one of the most common neuro-degenerative diseases worldwide, affecting patients’ ability to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL), such as cooking and dressing, and consequently decreasing Quality of Life (QoL). Most ADL require dexterous skills which are often impaired in PD. Pharmacological therapy is often not...

Mangroves trap sediment and are the first coastal defence line for many coastal areas. Unfortunately, mangrove coasts worldwide are eroding due to deforestation, exposing local communities to flood hazards. In Demak, Indonesia, a Building with Nature approach was chosen to counteract erosion. Permeable dams were built on the foreshore to...

Mangroves are productive ecosystems. Degradation of mangroves has been observed since the 1970s, due to a variety of reasons. Successful rehabilitation focuses on restoring conditions suitable for mangroves. Sediment availability has been shown to positively impact mangrove growth. Therefore, it can likely play a role in mangrove rehabilitation....

Training with bodyweight support (BWS) systems can improve the likelihood of regaining normal locomotor abilities for neurologically impaired patients. It is known that people alter their gait parameters when walking with BWS. However, it is unclear whether 2D (vertical and lateral support) and 3D (only vertical support) BWS systems affect these...

Background: Falls are a common complication experienced after a stroke and can cause serious detriments to physical health and social mobility, necessitating a dire need for intervention. Among recent advancements, wearable airbag technology has been designed to detect and mitigate fall impact. However, these devices have not been designed...

Mass housing neighbourhoods (MHN) represent the leading pattern of urban transformation and expansion in the second half of the 20th century, and accordingly evaluation, regeneration and redesign of the MHN represent a necessary and challenging task in the contemporary research context. In the practical scope of MHN rehabilitation, various...

Stroke causes damage to the brain, often resulting in weakness or paralysis on one side of the body. Everyday objects such as smartphones can play an im-portant role after a stroke facilitating participation in daily activities. However, commercial smartphones can be challenging to use, and people with stroke of-ten adjust their behavior to...

Fractures in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) are caused by a decreased strength of bone due to a decreased quality and quantity of bone matrix and architecture. Mutations in the collagen type 1 encoding genes cause the altered formation of collagen type I, one of the principal building blocks of bone tissue. Due to the complexity...

Combining immersive virtual reality (VR) using head-mounted displays (HMDs) with assisting robotic devices might be a promising procedure to enhance neurorehabilitation. However, it is still an open question how immersive virtual environments (VE) should be designed when interacting with rehabilitation robots. In conventional training, the...

Urban Drainage Systems (UDS) are one of the most vital yet, complex infrastructures that support people's livelihood in urban areas. However, due to their mainly underground infrastructure and complexity, the planning and management of UDS are usually associated with high investment, which stakeholders sometimes overlook. As long-lived...

Robots can be powerful tools in post-stroke gait rehabilitation. However, state-of-the-art robots are often expensive machines containing rigid links with high inertia. Their expensiveness could limit their availability, and their high inertia reduces transparency, which could hinder rehabilitation progress. These factors raise the need for a...

Spinal cord injuries (SCI) occur when damage to any part of the spinal cord is sustained. Depending on what vertebrae segment the injury occurs, the patient will develop paraplegia or tetraplegia and have a complete or incomplete spinal cord injury. After sustaining a spinal cord injury, the patient must undergo rehabilitation. <br/><br/>For...

The research and design project tries to understand how, from the failure of modern narratives in spatial production, an alternative methodology for architecture can arise. In the post-soviet context, practices of improvisation that adopt methods based on the acceptance of structural indeterminacy try to meet an architectural project concerned...
