Werken in de zorg is fysiek zwaar. Met het oog op het hoge ziekteverzuim sloten de academische ziekenhuizen in 2001 een arboconvenant, bedoeld om klachten aan het houding- en bewegingsapparaat van medewerkers op zorggerelateerde afdelingen te verminderen. Het bijbehorende preventieprogramma bestaat uit trainingen in omgang met fysiek belastende...

The OECD Health Effects Test Guidelines (TGs) provide guidance concerning the use of methods for the identification and characterization of hazards from chemical substances. These TGs are largely based on tests in routine use for many years and are known to yield information relevant to various types of toxicity. They have proven their value in...

Roll optic flow induces illusory self-tilt in humans. As far as the mechanism underlying this visual-vestibular interaction is understood, larger angles of self-tilt are predicted than observed. It is hypothesized that the discrepancy can be explained by idiotropic (i.e., referring to a personal head or body fixed frame of reference) and/or...

Prospect interdependencies, if present and positively correlated, result in a higher standard deviation of the portfolio volumetric expectation curve, compared to a portfolio with independent prospects. This wider uncertainty range offers options for companies to increase the expected cumulative net present value (NPV) of the exploration...

Human performance may, among other things, depend on the ability to visually discern (small) objects. This ability is generally quantified under static conditions by means of the visual acuity, a measure of the minimum angle resolved by the eye. However, when the subject himself, his or her eyes, and/or the object to be discerned are moving,...

Manned long-duration missions to the Moon and Mars set high operational, human factors and technical demands for a distributed support system, which enhances human-machine teams' capabilities to cope autonomously with unexpected, complex and potentially hazardous situations. Based on a situated Cognitive Engineering (sCE) method, we specified a...

Inleiding Een aanzienlijk aantal militaire leerling-vliegers krijgt in de loop van de opleiding last van bewegingsziekte tijdens trainingsvluchten. Voor een aantal leerlingen is het probleem zo ernstig, dat zij een desensitisatiebehandeling moeten ondergaan. Wanneer het zou lukken de symptomen m.b.v. anti-bewegingsziektemiddelen te reduceren,...

At TNO research is ongoing on neuro-vestibular adaptation to altered G-levels. It is well-known that during the first days in weightlessness 50-80% of all astronauts suffer from the Space Adaptation Syndrome (SAS), which involves space motion sickness, spatial disorientation and motion illusions. After return on Earth the problems re-appear, but...

In this study we describe a new approach to relate simulator sickness ratings with the main frequency component of the simulator motion mismatch, that is, the computed difference between the time histories of simulator motion and vehicle motion, respectively. During two driving simulator experiments in the TNO movingbase driving simulator—that...

Assembly is a crucial part in the realization of a product. Compared to assembly in the macro world, assembly in the micro world is influenced by scaling effects. These include surface forces, high requirements on placement uncertainty and small product dimensions. Conventional high-speed assembly in many cases utilizes suction grippers. However...

Adaptation to a novel gravitational state involves adaptation of vestibular mediated responses, in particular those mediated by the otolith organs. The present paper investigates whether the orientation of Listing’s plane, which is under control of otolith signals, is affected by sustained exposure to hypergravity. Subjects were exposed to four...

Spores of Bacillus subtilis were subjected to relatively mild heat treatments in distilled water and properties of these spores were studied. These spores had lost all or part of their dipicolinic acid (DPA) depending on the severity of the heat treatment. Even after relatively mild heat treatments these spore lost already a small but...

We used a desktop computer game environment to study the effect Field-of-View (FOV) on cybersickness. In particular, we examined the effect of differences between the internal FOV (iFOV, the FOV which the graphics generator is using to render its images) and the external FOV (eFOV, the FOV of the presented images as seen from the physical...

Two sediment cores of 70 and 252 cm length were recovered from Hjort Sø, a small lake on Store Koldewey, Northeast Greenland, and studied with a multidisciplinary approach in order to reconstruct the local environmental history and to test the relevance of proxies for paleoenvironmental information. The basal sediments from the longer core are...

This paper deals with visual-vestibular interactions as these occur when viewing images, and may cause motion sickness. Some basic vestibular matters fundamental to motion sickness are highlighted, such as the observation that people without functioning inner ears do not get sick from motion, including visual motion. Furthermore, the subjective...

Since the maritime environment is strongly aggressive, coatings needed to protect steel can be classifi ed as ‘heavy duty coatings’. In most maritime applications because of maintenance diffi culties a long service life is generally required. This, together with safety and environmental issues, demands high requisites in performance and...

Prolonged exposure to hypergravity in a human centrifuge can lead to post-rotary spatial disorientation and motion sickness. These symptoms are mainly provoked by tilting head movements and resemble the Space Adaptation Syndrome. We hypothesized that the occurrence of these post-rotary effects might be related to changes in the velocity storage ...
