Manual wheelchair users, especially those with spinal cord injuries, often suffer from shoulder overuse and pain. Understanding the specific role of the muscles involved in wheelchair propulsion is essential to prevent these complications. Yet, there is uncertainty about which muscles are primarily recruited, and their contribution to propulsion...

A computational framework is presented to numerically simulate the effects of antihypertensive drugs, in particular calcium channel blockers, on the mechanical response of arterial walls. A stretch-dependent smooth muscle model by Uhlmann and Balzani is modified to describe the interaction of pharmacological drugs and the inhibition of smooth...

Objective: Accurate estimation of stiffness across anatomical levels (i.e., joint, muscle, and tendon) in vivo has long been a challenge in biomechanics. Recent advances in electromyography (EMG)-driven musculoskeletal modeling have allowed the non-invasive estimation of stiffness during dynamic joint rotations. Nevertheless, validation has...

Muscle fatigue's indirect link to higher athletic injury risks is a key focus of this study. It highlights how fatigue-induced shifts in muscle resource allocation and movement patterns can lead to biomechanical imbalances, subsequently heightening injury susceptibility. Addressing high injury rates in athletics, this study was conducted in two...

In the context of prosthetic devices, the absence of natural sensory feedback poses a significant challenge, leading to limited proprioceptive sensation and reduced control over artificial limbs. This study explores the potential of establishing a magnetic connection between prosthetic devices and muscles to enhance proprioceptive feedback and...

This paper investigates the effect of intrinsic muscle stiffness on neural control parameters in biological musculoskeletal control of stabilisation or reaching tasks. Current model implementations of intrinsic muscle properties are highly simplified, limiting their accuracy in replicating experimental short-range stiffness (SRS) behaviour,...

Muscle overload injuries in strength training might be prevented by providing personalized feedback about muscle load during a workout. In the present study, a new muscle load feedback application, which monitors and visualizes the loading of specific muscle groups, was developed in collaboration with the fitness company Gymstory. The aim of the...

The complexity of the human shoulder girdle enables the large mobility of the upper extremity, but also introduces instability of the glenohumeral (GH) joint. Shoulder movements are generated by coordinating large superficial and deeper stabilizing muscles spanning numerous degrees-of-freedom. How shoulder muscles are coordinated to stabilize...

The advancement and development of human modeling have greatly benefited from principles used in robotics, for instance, multibody dynamics laid the foundations for physics engines of human movement simulation, and the robotics and control theory were used to contextualize human sensorimotor control. There are many common interests and...

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...

The myocutaneous anterolateral thigh (ALT) and vastus lateralis (VL) flaps include a large muscle mass and a sufficient vascular pedicle, and they have been used for decades to reconstruct traumatic and acquired defects of the head and neck and extremities. In spite of these benefits, musculoskeletal dysfunction was reported in nearly 1 out...

Cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) followed by radical cystectomy is recommended for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). It has been shown that somatic deleterious mutations in ERCC2, gain-of-function mutations in ERBB2, and alterations in ATM, RB1, and FANCC are correlated with pathological response to NAC in...

To unlock new research possibilities by acquiring control of action potential (AP) morphologies in excitable cells, we developed an opto-electronic feedback loop-based system integrating cellular electrophysiology, real-time computing, and optogenetic approaches and applied it to monolayers of heart muscle cells. This allowed accurate...

Twisted and coiled polymer muscles (TCPMs) are a type of artificial muscle with a remarkable power-to-weight ratio. However, actuation dynamics are slow compared to other artificial muscles. This work aims to improve dynamic performance by incorporating redundancy. Specifically, this work examines if TCPM bundles of heterogeneous geometries...

Hamstring injuries in field hockey are very common. Accurate estimates of muscle tendon unit lengths (MTU) and elongation velocities could give insight into the risk of injury during field hockey specific movements. For accurate measurements the hockey field would be best suited. Inertial measurement technology allows for such measurements;...

The Delft Hand and Wrist model is a recently created musculoskeletal model in the OpenSim environment. The current model lacks a validation of the thumb muscles. Therefore, the main goal of this work is to perform a quantitative trend validation by analyzing the correlation between experimentally measured muscle activity data and muscle forces...

In cardiovascular interventions, when steering catheters and especially robotic catheters, great care should be paid to prevent applying too large forces on the vessel walls as this could dislodge calcifications, induce scars or even cause perforation. To address this challenge, this paper presents a novel compliant motion control algorithm...

Background: Muscle weakness is characteristic of knee osteoarthritis. Muscle steadiness may be an important adjunct to knee muscle strength in improving physical function in knee osteoarthritis. However, the role of muscle steadiness is uncertain. Aims: To determine the associations of knee extensor muscle steadiness with maximal voluntary...

Background: After latissimus dorsi transfer (LDT), an increase in scapulothoracic (ST) contribution in thoracohumeral (TH) elevation is observed when compared to the asymptomatic shoulder. It is not known which shoulder muscles contribute to this change in shoulder kinematics, and whether the timing of muscle recruitment has altered after LDT...

Background: In individuals with unilateral plantar flexor weakness, the second peak of the vertical ground reaction force (GRF) is decreased. This leads to a higher ground reaction force, e.g. impact, of the contralateral leg, potentially explaining quadriceps muscle and/or knee joint pain. Energy cost optimized dorsal leaf ankle-foot...
