van Dijk, M.P. (author)
From the perspective of wheelchair sports practice, there is a growing need to provide feedback on power output. Power can be used to monitor athletes' fitness and fatigue levels, thereby preventing overtraining and potential injuries, to individualize and analyze training programs, and it is also an objective measure of effort or intensity....

In wheelchair sports, there is an increasing need to monitor mechanical power in the field. When rolling resistance is known, inertial measurement units (IMUs) can be used to determine mechanical power. However, upper body (i.e., trunk) motion affects the mass distribution between the small front and large rear wheels, thus affecting rolling...

An important performance determinant in wheelchair sports is the power exchanged between the athlete-wheelchair combination and the environment, in short, mechanical power. Inertial measurement units (IMUs) might be used to estimate the exchanged mechanical power during wheelchair sports practice. However, to validly apply IMUs for mechanical...

Accurate assessment of rolling resistance is important for wheelchair propulsion analyses. However, the commonly used drag and deceleration tests are reported to underestimate rolling resistance up to 6% due to the (neglected) influence of trunk motion. The first aim of this study was to investigate the accuracy of using trunk and wheelchair...

In light of the current discussion in architecture regarding healthcare, we often disregard the qualities of “old-fashioned” healthcare buildings.<br/>In the neighbourhood of Droixhe, Liege, this is no different. The site used to be inhabited by a thriving healthcare residence named ‘Les Murlais’, however, its thoughtless demolition erased not...

Heringa, Louise (author)
The first aim of this master thesis is to explore whether the normal force on the castor wheels can be estimated from IMU data using a machine learning approach. The second aim is to evaluate whether incorporating the changing load distribution due to trunk movement could improve the friction power estimation compared with neglecting changes in...

New studies state that climate change is projected to harm snow reliability in ski resorts, resulting in shorter ski seasons, increased snowmaking demand and low-lying ski areas may cease to exist. Open Wear is a sustainable outerwear brand that uses sustainable materials and ethical production to produce clothing from 100% recycled plastic. The...

This paper studies a promising use case of a private 5G network for the sports industry: wearable bodycams and sensors in a football match. This use case requires a reliable and dedicated massive MIMO network to provide uniform coverage with a high capacity in the whole pitch area. The coverage of co-located and distributed (cell-free) massive...

The societal need for sustainability transformation is crucial in light of climate change, and the role of individual action and behavioural changes is considered critical in meeting the Paris agreement. Radical shifts in social norms are required, which could be achieved through reaching social tipping points. These tipping points could be...

The city itself serves as a stage for major sports events and as a sports space for individual and not organized sports such as running, biking and skateboarding. The scale of sports spaces ranges from large sports parks for professional competition and narrow allies for informal jogging. People’s movement brings energy to urban life while the...

Activity classification in sports is a powerful tool for athlete monitoring, enhancing performance and injury prevention. In handball, detection and classification of throws during a practice or a (practice) match has not been done. Therefore, the aim of this study is to use machine learning algorithms to detect handball throws and to classify...

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is the state of the art for quantitative, full-field, 3D flow diagnostics. Despite the maturity of the technique, two bottlenecks are identified which are addressed in this thesis: the achievable measurement volume size, and the optical access to geometrically complex objects. Both aspects are well illustrated...
