Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, offers a new paradigm for the way functional products are designed, manufactured, and assembled. Its additive nature provides the ability to create complex-shaped parts, without an increase in production time or costs, which would be difficult to produce with conventional manufacturing. In addition,...

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...

Future Mars exploration missions require safe and controlled landing on the planet’s surface. Conventional entry, descent and landing (EDL) technologies, such as parachutes and rigid aeroshells, face limitations in meeting increasing demands for heavier payloads, harsher entry conditions, and desired landing locations due to their limited...

Synchronized ac-dc rectifiers are widely used for energy rectification in piezoelectric energy harvesting (PEH), which have to employ a bulky inductor or some dedicated flying capacitors for high energy conversion efficiency. This article proposes a synchronized switch harvesting on shared capacitors (SSHSC) rectifier achieving synchronized...

A miniaturized instrument was developed to enable in-situ measurements of the radiation environment at the Moon. The instrument is designated to function as the science payload for the first mission of the Lunar Zebro nano-rover. Characterization and testing of the Floating Gate Dosimeter (FGDOS) was advanced with an emphasis on its utilization...

The progress in the field of neurostimulation is impressive, both from a technical as well as from a therapeutic point of view. Nowadays, the electrical stimulation of the nervous system can be used to induce or suppress muscle responses. Additionally, it can also influence hearing, vision, immune system response, pain perception, and even...

Stereolithography is emerging as a promising additive manufacturing technology for a range of applications in the medical domain. However, for miniature, medical devices such as those used in ophthalmic surgery, a number of production challenges arise due to the small size of the components. In this work, we investigate the challenges of...

Biopharmaceuticals are becoming increasingly important in modern healthcare. Monoclonal antibodies (mAb) are one of the most widely used therapeutic proteins and are important for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases, among others. After cell culture there are still large amounts of other impurities (e.g. host cell proteins) in...

Despite recent advances in robotic technology, sewer pipe inspection is still limited to conventional approaches that use cable-tethered robots. Such commercially available tethered robots lack autonomy, and their operation must be manually controlled via their tethered cables. Consequently, they can only travel to a certain distance in pipe,...

Patients who suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, have to live with hand impairments for over 15 years. This significantly influences their ability to live independently. Currently, static splinting interspersed with stretching of the hand is the course of treatment for this patient group and developed active hand orthoses focus mainly on...

Several Silicon on Insulator (SOI) wafer manufacturers are now offering products with customer‐defined cavities etched in the handle wafer, which significantly simplifies the fabrication of MEMS devices such as pressure sensors. This paper presents a novel cavity buried oxide (BOX) SOI substrate (cavity‐BOX) that contains a patterned BOX...

This paper presents an experimental investigation on the short-term creep recovery of cement paste at micrometre length scale. Micro-cantilever beams were fabricated and tested with 8 different loading series using the nanoindenter. It is found that cement pastes show high recovery ratios (>80%) even subjected to very high stress levels....

The operating principle of Pirani pressure sensors is based on the pressure dependence of a suspended strip's electrical conductivity, caused by the thermal conductance of the surrounding gas which changes the Joule heating of the strip. To realize such sensors, not only materials with high temperature dependent electrical conductivity are...

This study proposes an experimental method for studying the short-term creep behaviour of cement paste at micro-scale. The micro-bending tests on miniaturized cantilever beams were used to characterize the viscoelastic properties of cement paste. The effects of w/b ratio, the type of binder and the stress level on the microscopic creep...

Miniature ultrasound probes, such as intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) probes, are valuable diagnostic tools and provide image guidance during minimallyinvasive interventions. As more ultrasound transducer elements are built into such probes to improve image quality and frame rate, it becomes increasingly difficult to accommodate the cables needed...

Orthoses have evolved from simply maintaining bone fractures and correcting spinal deformities to full mechatronic systems that can read a person’s intention and translate that into a desired motion or force path. A vast variety in pathologies (e.g., stroke, muscular dystrophies), applications (e.g., daily assistance, research) and environments ...
