  1. 21. Towards clinically viable neuromuscular control of bone-anchored prosthetic arms with sensory feedback

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Enzo Mastinu; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electromyography; prosthetics; sensory feedback; closed-loop; osseointegration; embedded system; pattern recognition; neurostimulation;

    Abstract : Promising developments are currently ongoing worldwide in the field of neuroprosthetics and artificial limb control. It is now possible to chronically connect a robotic limb to bone, nerves, and muscles of a human being, and to use the signals sourced from these connections to enable movements of the artificial limb.

  2. 22. On nano size structures for enhanced bone formation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Luiz Meirelles; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nano structures; nanotopography; surface modification; osseointegration; bone tissue; titanium implants;

    Abstract : Purpose The general aim of the present thesis was to investigate early bone response to titanium implants modified with nano size structures. Therefore, 1. a model to evaluate titanium implants modified with nano size structures was validated; 2. a suitable detection method of nano size structures was implemented. READ MORE

  3. 23. On the role of surface properties for implant fixation : From finite element modeling to in vivo studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Patrik Stenlund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Implant stability; Removal torque; Surface roughness; Surface chemistry; Finite element analysis; Experimental; In vivo; Osseointegration; Mechanical loading; Bone regeneration; Biomechanics;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to gain a deeper understanding of the factors contributing to the fixation of bone-anchored implants, especially with regard to surface chemistry, surface topography and implant loading. The methodology used in the thesis ranges from systematic bench studies, computer simulations, experimental in vivo studies, to load cell measurements on patients treated with bone-anchored amputation prostheses.

  4. 24. Molecular and cellular interactions on noble metal nanopatterned surfaces − applications towards bone, soft tissue and infection control

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Sara Svensson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nanotopography; noble metals; titanium; biocompatibility; osseointegration; inflammation; host defence; monocytes; infection control; antimicrobial; staphylococci;

    Abstract : Biomaterial-associated infection is recognised as one of the main risks for failure of medical devices. The presence of a foreign material in tissues has been suggested to compromise the ability of host cells to eradicate infection. READ MORE

  5. 25. Infections associated with percutaneous osseointegrated titanium implants for limb prostheses

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg. Sahlgrenska Academy, Institute of Biomedicine

    Author : Jonatan Tillander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; osteomyelitis; osseointegration; percutaneous implant; titanium; amputation; long-term risk; clinical presentation; biofilm;

    Abstract : Femoral amputation is a devastating event. Percutaneous, bone anchored prosthetic systems reduce problems associated with socket suspended prostheses, but the design is inherently vulnerable to infection. READ MORE
