  1. 1. Real-time Control Modelling and Output Signal Data Analysis Based on the Stewart Platform

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Junhao Cui; [2022]
    Keywords : Prosthesis; Stewart platform; Simulation; PID control; Kalman filter; Protes; Stewart-plattform; Simulering; PID-kontroll; Kalman-filter;

    Abstract : Around 40 million people around the world have amputated parts of their bodies. Prostheses are widely used to support their daily behavior. However, about 35% of amputees refuse to use the prostheses due to comfort problems. SocketSense is an EU research project that aims to improve the situation. READ MORE

  2. 2. An alignment tool for prosthetic components : A conceptual development

    University essay from Jönköping University/HHJ, Avd. för rehabilitering

    Author : Robin Johansson; [2022]
    Keywords : Prosthetics; alignment; malalignment; misalignment; artificial limb; design; product development.; Protes; uppställning; inställning; felställning; konstgjord kroppsdel; design; produktutveckling;

    Abstract : Prosthetic alignment is the principle of the position and orientation and of the components in a lower limb prosthesis to achieve desirable biomechanical characteristics. Poor alignment of lower limb prostheses is related to decreased balance, knee and hip arthritis, and higher energy expenditure for the user. READ MORE

  3. 3. Polymer-based additive manufacturing: optimization for high-performance degradable polymers

    University essay from KTH/Fiber- och polymerteknologi

    Author : Danjing Chen; [2022]
    Keywords : copolymerization; fused filament fabrication; degradable polymer; scaffold; 3D printing; sampolymerisering; tillverkning av filament; nedbrytbar polymer; tredimensionella matriser; 3D printing;

    Abstract : I det här utvecklas en reproducerbar polymerisationsmetod för att uppnå en stabil produktion av poly(ε-caprolakton-co-p-dioxanon) (PCLDX), skala upp filamenttillverkningen för att producera 1.75 mm långa filament och optimera 3D-utskriftsprocessen för att tillverka ställningar/anordningar för mjukvävnadsteknik.

  4. 4. A Methodology to Quantify Alignment of Transtibial and Transfemoral Prostheses using Optical Motion Capture System

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Þórey Ásgeirsdóttir; [2022]
    Keywords : Alignment; Lower limb amputees; Prosthesis; Motion Capture;

    Abstract : Background: Lower limb amputees face many challenges, and most of them prefer to use prosthetics for daily tasks and activities. The prosthesis is usually a combination of connected prosthetic components, and their spatial orientation is called the prosthetic alignment. READ MORE

  5. 5. EEG Signal Analysis in the Frequency Domain : An Examination of Abnormalities During the Gait Cycle

    University essay from KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem

    Author : Lou Gripentoft; Zilan Isik; [2022]
    Keywords : EEG; Frequency Domain; Signal Analysis; Fast Fourier transform; EEG; Frekvensdomän; Signalanalys; Snabb Fourier transform.;

    Abstract : Many people experience discomfort during movement when using a knee prosthesis. As a result, a study is being conducted to see if biomedical models can be used to produce an optimal prosthetic socket to reduce discomfort. READ MORE
