Dutch children achieve an insufficient amount of physical activity. For that reason, Delft University of Technology is looking to develop a wearable that contributes to motivating children to move more frequently and more intensely while collecting data on the movements made by its wearer. In this thesis it was investigated whether it would be...

The human brain integrates tactile sensory information from the fingertips to efficiently manipulate objects. Sensory impairments due to neurological disorders, e.g. stroke, largely reduce hand dexterity and the ability to perform daily living activities. Several feedback augmentation techniques have been investigated for rehabilitative purposes...

Social interactions in general are multifaceted and there exists an wide set of factors and events that influence them. Hence, interactions as a social phenomena have been studied by researchers in the fields of psychology and social signal processing from different stand points. The common trend in literature is to perform an in-depth study on...

Since technological devices become smaller and our devices are more fused with our bodies, the logical next step is that technology will be placeable on our skin. In this thesis the design process towards a useful application of an interface on the skin is described. To get towards this design, several methods are used in the process. To shape...

BACKGROUND - In a variety of patients with locomotive disorders gait efficiency is often assessed using mobile metabolic gas analysis during rehabilitative interventions. Conventionally, these measurements take 6 minutes per evaluated condition (e.g. with/without ankle-foot-orthosis; AFO). This duration is required since there is a dynamical...

The project aims at exploring tangible ways to communicate emotion. To narrow down the scope, I lay the focus on emotion communication in remote settings, a context when nonverbal communication is usually limited. From interviews, the neutral expression is found to be the main factor hindering a sufficient understanding of others' emotional...

In this thesis, prediction of romantic, social and sexual attraction between two people using bodily coordination features is studied. Attraction is one type of interest that can occur between interacting people and understanding the modeling of it can help understand how to model other types of interests in human-human interactions because...

Advances in sensing and machine learning technologies give rise to personal health coaches that monitor human activities and support healthy behaviour. In this context, wheelchair users can benefit from such technologies as they often suffer from physical ailments due to insufficient or over activity, prolonged improper posture and lack of...

This reports the graduation project aimed to investigate the occurrence of rebellious play through the X-eo prototype. Rebellious behaviour is often referred to as going against the norm and derives its value from breaking rules. Previous academic research (Gielen & Van Leeuwen, 2013), on the subject, has provided suggestions and techniques...

Recognising the user’s locomotive intentions is crucial for the correct functionality of exoskeletons and active orthoses. For gait applications, extrapolating control inputs from the arm swing may be worthwhile, since arm oscillations naturally occur during human locomotion. A similar method would be unaffected by severe impairments of the...

This project is an initiative of the Department of Surgery in Maasstad Ziekenhuis. In the department, two types of patients undergo abdominal surgery: 1) mobile obese patients and, 2) patients with cancer. These types of patients need personal contact and guidance, especially patients with cancer. However, nurses are overwhelmed with work and...

TThis project started out as a quest to find a meaningful application for the electroluminescent material: a phenomenom where a plane of phosphor is lit up when an alternating current is run through it. The material has several unique properties which make it perfect for application on smart wearables:It emits light, it is paper thin, it is...

Sleep is a natural state of our mind and body during which our muscles heal and our memories are consolidated. It is such a habitual phenomenon that we have been viewing it as another ordinary task in our day-to-day life. However, owing to the current fast-paced, technology-driven generation, we are letting ourselves be sleep-deprived, giving...

Behavioral treatment shows long-term success among children with AD(H)D, but is often expensive and hard to bring into practice. Flowy is a wristband that supports behavioral interventions by giving rhythmic vibrations as reminders for behavioral change.<br/>Rhythmic vibrations on the wrist have shown to have a calming effect, and can alert...

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder that can develop after having experienced a traumatic event and in which a person experiences trauma-related symptoms or impairments in everyday functioning that last for at least a month and sometimes for life (Friedman, F2015). In order to be diagnosed with PTSD, a person must have...

Deterioration of gait and balance, whether from aging, disease, or injury, has been linked to reduced mobility and increased risk of falling. Wearable sensing technologies, such as inertial measurement units (IMUs), may augment clinical assessments by providing continuous gait and balance data at an increased resolution. The objective of this...

Small, cheap, low-energy electronics and ICT create the opportunity to collect all kind of data of a human being in operational circumstances. These data facilitate the optimisation en effectiveness of the human efforts. Simple examples such as heart rate monitors optimising physical exertion or hypoxia sensors measuring blood saturation are...
