Purpose: eHealth-based exercise therapies were developed to increase stroke patients’ adherence to home-based motor rehabilitation. However, these eHealth tools face a rapid decrease in use after a couple of weeks. This study investigates stroke patients’ motivation for home-based upper extremity rehabilitation with eHealth tools and their...

Repetitive, individual exercises can improve the functional ability of stroke survivors over the long term. With the aim of providing extra motivation to adhere to repetitive, individual rehabilitation, this paper presents a robotic coach for stroke rehabilitation. Our system uses the Pepper robot and performs one of twelve data-driven...

Cerebral X-ray digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is a widely used imaging technique in patients with neurovascular disease, allowing for vessel and flow visualization with high spatio-temporal resolution. Automatic artery–vein segmentation in DSA plays a fundamental role in vascular analysis with quantitative biomarker extraction,...

Stroke, currently ranked as the second leading cause of mortality and the most prevalent source of enduring disability, imposes significant societal and economic consequences. These consequences encompass the necessity for extended care, rehabilitation, and the economic burdens associated with lost productivity. In the diagnostic process,...

People that are recovering from a stroke need frequent and high-intensity training to regain their upper-limb capacity. This will eventually result in better performances and higher quality of their daily life. Robotic devices are often used to assist stroke patients in rehabilitation. The minimally-supervised portable hand trainer, which is...

As a big contributor to the the global emissions, the maritime sector strives to bring down its greenhouse gasses and hazardous emissions by enforcing increasing strict rules on the exhaust gasses. This gives major challenges to the maritime sector to develop greener modes of transportation. This report investigates the in-cylinder starting...

Stroke patients can have spastic paresis of the lower leg, impeding an ankle which hinders gait. A novel orthosis has been developed which counteracts this impediment to the ankle. It is expected that gait training will improve stroke patients' use of the orthosis by increasing their ankle dynamics. Gait training with biofeedback, which is based...

Aims Little is known about the impact of daily physical activity timing (here referred to as 'chronoactivity') on cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. We aimed to examined the associations between chronoactivity and multiple CVD outcomes in the UK Biobank. Methods and results physical activity data were collected in the UK-Biobank through...

Endovascular thrombectomy procedures are significantly influenced by the mechanical response of thrombi to the multi-axial loading imposed during retrieval. Compression tests are commonly used to determine compressive ex vivo thrombus and clot analogue stiffness. However, there is a shortage of data in tension. This study compares the tensile...

Background The purpose of this study was to validate a technique for measuring mean calcium density and to determine associations of cardiovascular risk factors with carotid calcium density. Methods and Results We performed a cross-sectional study in a random sample of 100 stroke-free participants from the population-based Rotterdam Study....

Individuals with an upper motor neuron syndrome, e.g., stroke survivors, may have a pathological increase of passive ankle stiffness due to spasticity, that impairs ankle function and activities such as walking. To improve mobility, walking aids such as ankle-foot orthoses and orthopaedic shoes are prescribed. However, these walking aids...

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...

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,...

Muscle tissue is prone to changes in composition and architecture following stroke. Changes in muscle tissue of the extremities are thought to increase resistance to muscle elongation or joint torque under passive conditions. These effects likely compound neuromuscular impairments, exacerbating movement function. Unfortunately, conventional...

Computer-aided methods have shown added value for diagnosing and predicting brain disorders and can thus support decision making in clinical care and treatment planning. This chapter will provide insight into the type of methods, their working, their input data –such as cognitive tests, imaging, and genetic data– and the types of output they...

The efficacy of endovascular therapy in large vessel occlusion (LVO) of the anterior circulation is dependent to a high degree on the selection of patients who are likely to benefit from this procedure. To this end, functional outcome prediction based on clinical parameters is an active area of research. In the preoperative screening of LVO...

Rehabilitation robots have been shown to be effective in post-stroke gait rehabilitation. However, these devices are usually expensive and suffer from high inertia which decreases transparency. The Minimally Actuated Tendon-based exercise Environment (MATE) is a tendon-based rehabilitation device, designed to be cost-effective and minimize...
