Energy harvesting has gained lots of interest over the past few decades. This study explores the application of energy harvesting in lower limb prosthetic devices. The control system of a lower limb prosthesis includes sensors, wireless<br/>systems and other active components which all require battery power. In order to save some of this battery...

Around 10% of the population will have to go through a catheterization procedure for the treatment of a cardiovascular disease at a certain stage of their lives. During such a procedure, smart catheters will be the "eyes and ears" of the surgeons, significantly improving the diagnosis and treatment. However, there have been very limited...

Acoustic side-channel attacks (SCAs) use audio produced by a system to bypass traditional security measures to extract sensitive information. Human interface devices, such as keyboards, have been the focus of such attacks, however, computer mice are input devices that are currently in a research gap. This paper explores the security risks the...

The availability of laparoscopy in low-income settings has been limited based on the requirements that have to be met to perform this type of abdominal surgery. At the same time, these regions and countries could stand to gain the most from it based on quicker recovery times and a lower chance of infections. Attempts have been made to solve this...

A large part of condensed matter physics concerns itself with understanding the behaviour of electrons in solids and finding ways to control them. However, in mesoscopic systems (i.e., systems with nanometer to micrometre scale), the behaviour of electrons is difficult to predict through the Schrödinger equation. Instead, it is often more...

Background: Bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) is the most common method of contraception worldwide because it is safe and effective. However, its accessibility remains unequal among women in rural India, in part due to a lack of laparoscopic equipment. Rural hospitals therefore resort to gas insufflation-less laparoscopic surgery (GILLS) because it...

Cervical Cancer (CC) is a preventable disease and is easily treated when detected early. Yet it is the second most prevalent cancer related death in Cameroon, causing an estimated 1787 deaths each year (Woks et al, 2023). Cameroon has implemented no national strategy to prevent this disease and so screening practices that are in place are...

Introduction: Communication from automated vehicles (AVs) to pedestrians using augmented reality (AR) could positively contribute to traffic safety. However, previous AR research for pedestrians was mainly conducted through online questionnaires or experiments in virtual environments instead of real ones.<br/><br/>Methods: In this study, 28...

This thesis investigates the aerodynamics of a propeller-wing-flap system, spurred by the growing interest in propeller-driven aircraft and the potential introduction of distributed electric propulsion. The research focuses on the complex flowfield involving the interaction of the propeller slipstream with the main wing and flap at high-lift...

Background: Minimally invasive cancellous bone biopsy is a common medical procedure in which a needle is used to extract a piece of cancellous bone for examination. Unfortunately, this procedure is not always successful, as sometimes the biopsy can slip partially or completely, necessitating a new biopsy. The occurrence of these errors is not...

Superconducting qubits have seen a tremendous progress in the last two decades, and yet they remain unable to extract quantum advantage for application scenarios. While algorithms like Shor’s demonstrate quantum advantage in theory, they do not seem to fit modern noisy quantum processors. Then, in order to achieve quantum advantage either modern...

Post-mortem interval estimation (PMI) is a key part of forensic investigation. Accurately obtaining a PMI early in the investigative process improves the reconstruction of events, directs follow-up research and narrows down suspects in case of homicide. Currently, PMI is determined using Henssge’s nomogram requiring ambient temperature, rectal...

Annually, around 180,000 cardiac ablation procedures are performed as a result of people experiencing cardiac arrhythmia’s. During this ablation procedure, an ablation catheter is used to scar the problematic cardiac tissue after which the arrhythmia will stop. The ablation catheter is discarded after one single use. Incineration of these...

Existing tools for debugging battery-free applications are limited to specific architectures or require code changes of the Device Under Test (DUT) to function. These tools also cannot measure the efficiency of the application designed for battery-free systems. Currently, there is a lack of independent broad comparisons of intermittent systems....
