  1. 1. Antibacterial surface coatings for biomedical applications

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Saba Atefyekta; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Antimicrobial surfaces; mesoporous titania; elastin-like polypeptide; antimicrobial peptide; antibiotic delivery;

    Abstract : Over the past decades there has been a significant increase in the diversity and function of biomaterials. Today, medical practices utilize a large number of biomaterials in the form of medical devices and implants. However, one major obstacle that limits the efficiency of biomaterials is their susceptibility to develop infection. READ MORE

  2. 2. The impression technique for assessment of tissue oedema : instrumentation, evaluation and applications

    University dissertation from Linköping : LJ Foto & Montage

    Author : Olof Anton Lindahl; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medical Engineering for Healthcare; Medicinsk teknik för hälsovård;

    Abstract : An instrument for clinical noninvasive assessment of tissue oedema based on an impression method was developed. The method measures and evaluates the decaying force, due to translocation of tissue fluid, during mechanical compression of any site of tissue. We applied the impression method on physical models, animal models, and patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Physical Axon Modeling, Simulation and Electrode Evaluation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Malcolm Latorre; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Electrodes are used in medicine for detection of biological signals and for stimulating tissue, e.g. in deep brain stimulation (DBS). For both applications, an understanding of the functioning of the electrode, and its interface and interaction with the target tissue involved is necessary. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Balanced Electromagnetic Separation Transducer for Bone Conduction Audiometry and Hearing Rehabilitation

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Karl-Johan Fredén Jansson; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; retention magnet; bone vibrator; demagnetization; bone conduction; balanced electromagnetic separation transducer; magnetically induced torque; image artifact; magnetic resonance imaging;

    Abstract : Hearing via air conduction (AC) and bone conduction (BC) are attributed to bethe natural ways of conducting sound to the cochlea. With AC hearing, air pressurevariations are transmitted to the cochlea via the ear canal, whereas with BChearing, sound vibrations are transmitted through the skull bone to the cochlea. READ MORE

  5. 5. Antibacterial Surfaces for Biomedical Applications

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Saba Atefyekta; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Elastin-like polypeptides; antimicrobial peptides; antibiotic delivery; Antibacterial surfaces; mesoporous titania; contact killing surfaces; Infection;

    Abstract : Medical devices such as orthopedic implants are intended to serve for improved quality of life. However, clinical success cannot be taken for granted and the most common reason for failure is due to biomaterials associated infection (BAI). READ MORE
