  1. 1. Heavy Vehicle Crash Safety - Improved Thoracic Injury Prediction in Frontal Crash Testing

    Author : Kristian Holmqvist; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Finite Element modelling; Pendulum test; Injury assessment; Accidents; Chest injury; Hybrid III; Heavy goods vehicle; THUMS; Crash test;

    Abstract : Frontal crashes are regarded as some of the most injurious accidents for Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) drivers. One of the leading HGV manufacturers regularly conducts frontal crash testing for occupant safety. The Hybrid III crash test dummy was developed for frontal testing in passenger cars and has become the standard in crash laboratories. READ MORE

  2. 2. Computational Medical Image Analysis : With a Focus on Real-Time fMRI and Non-Parametric Statistics

    Author : Anders Eklund; Hans Knutsson; Mats Andersson; Stephen LaConte; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : functional magnetic resonance imaging; brain computer interfaces; canonical correlation analysis; random permutation test; graphics processing unit;

    Abstract : Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a prime example of multi-disciplinary research. Without the beautiful physics of MRI, there wouldnot be any images to look at in the first place. To obtain images of goodquality, it is necessary to fully understand the concepts of the frequencydomain. READ MORE

  3. 3. Car-to-Car Side Impacts: Occupant Injuries, Test Methods, and the Development and Evaluation of Protective Systems

    Author : Yngve Håland; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The present work addresses the problem of injuries following car-to-car side collisions. The injuries in this type of impact have been evaluated to form the basis for the development of test methods and for the principles of protective systems. Side impacts give rise to relatively more severe injuries than frontal impacts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantifying human balance : Analysis of force plate data

    Author : Annica Önell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systems engineering; Systemteknik; Systemanalys; Systems Analysis;

    Abstract : There is a lack of reliable methods for assessment of balance suited for routine use in clinical settings. The thesis focuses on analysis of force plate data for evaluation of balance during normal, unperturbed standing and sitting. Some commonly used force plate based methods during unperturbed standing are presented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Measurements of Function in Children with Cerebral Palsy

    Author : Eva Nordmark; Barns och familjers hälsa; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; kinesitherapy; Physical medicine; epidemiology; function; Cerebral palsy; measurement; children; revalidation; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ;

    Abstract : Cerebral palsy (CP) is a term for a group of conditions associated with motor disabilities, that are very heterogeneous, i.e. symptoms, severity, associated impairments, functional outcome and needs. The overall purpose of this thesis was to study the prevalence and gross motor function and to evaluate and adapt measurements in children with CP. READ MORE
