Positive effects of arm support exoskeletons in reducing the shoulder load, have been reported mainly from laboratory studies. However, for exoskeletons to provide worker support in practice, they need to be accepted as well. Therefore, it is necessary to obtain insight into the user experience and attitude towards exoskeleton use, in relevant...

The effectiveness of exoskeletons could be enhanced by incorporating low back muscle fatigue estimates in their control. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether low back muscle fatigue can be estimated using the spectral content of trunk extensor muscle high-density EMG (HDEMG) by considering the motor unit action potential...

Estimation of low-back load can be used to determine the assistance to be provided by an actuated back-support exoskeleton. To this end, an EMG-driven muscle model and a regression model can be implemented. The goal of the regression model is to reduce the number of required sensors for load estimation. Both models need to be calibrated. This...

To evaluate the biomechanical effect of exoskeletons during lifting, three studies were performed to compare spine compression during lifting without and with three exoskeletons (Laevo, Robo-Mate, SPEXOR). In these studies, participants (11, 10 and 10, respectively) lifted boxes (10, 15 and 10 kg, respectively) from ankle height. Spine...

Der Anstieg der Opfererfahrungen durch Internetkriminalität unterstreicht die Notwendigkeit zu verstehen, wie sich Menschen online verhalten und wie unsicheres Online-Verhalten mit Viktimisierung zusammenhängen kann. Bisherige Studien haben sich oft auf selbstberichtete Verhaltensweisen oder Einstellungen zu vorsichtigem Online-Verhalten...

Impact assessments have long been used for policy evaluation as well as for assessing (emerging) technologies. Within the field of Digital Governance, impact assessments are often used to analyze policy implications or to assess the impact of technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence on public services. Furthermore, within this...

Learning Communities hebben als doel om bij te dragen aan oplossingen voor grote maatschappelijke vraagstukken. Om dit doel te bereiken dienen er ook opbrengsten te worden gerealiseerd op onderliggende niveaus, zoals opbrengsten voor organisaties en individuen. Kortom, er is sprake van een gelaagdheid aan opbrengsten. Om deze gelaagdheid aan...

The web of lies surrounding COVID-19 has been purposefully exacerbated by hostile actors, with researchers, analysts, and policymakers alike attempting to keep pace with unfolding disinformation narratives and subsequent effects on citizens. While the content of hostile disinformation narratives is relatively well-researched, how these...

We explored whether a multi-component approach - using a digital health device, the easypod™ auto-injector, the 'MySupport' patient support programme (PSP) and a Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®) - could improve adherence in patients receiving recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGH). A 13-item PAM was used to assess caregiver self-reported...

Pollution of plastics to the environment is uninhibitedly increasing, from densely populated city centers to remote oceans (Lebreton et al. 2018; van Emmerik et al. 2019b). Causes for this increase are a combination of a growing world population, rising plastic consumptions, and poor waste management (Lebreton and Andrady 2019; Borrelle et al....

Nowadays, many cities are intending to reduce the use of private vehicles. Governments are incorporating new mobility services and are adapting their parking policies to promote a more sustainable mobility, as both strategies are believed to have the potential to reduce private vehicle use. To understand the effects of these strategies, one...

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and new mobility concepts mutually inspire each other, provide alternatives for the private car-oriented transport system as we know it, and will offer more mobility choices in a single journey than ever. This multitude of mobility choices however poses challenges in modeling the travelers’ mode choices in travel...

How can we observe how people respond to consequential errors by an artificial agent in a realistic yet highly controllable environment? We created a threat-detection house-search task in virtual reality in which participants form a Human-Agent Team (HAT) with an autonomous drone. By simulating risk, we amplify the feeling of reliance and the...
