About two in three people have experienced carsickness at some point in their life (Reason & Brand, 1975). Little is known about current numbers of sufferers, cultural differences, or which modulating factors are being perceived as most relevant. Therefore, given a global increase of interest in carsickness driven by the development of automated...

Rationale & objective: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are particularly sensitive to dietary sodium. We evaluated a self-management approach for dietary sodium restriction in patients with CKD. Study design: Randomized controlled trial. Setting & participants: Nephrology outpatient clinics in 4 Dutch hospitals. 99 adults with CKD...

Being able to anticipate upcoming motion is known to potentially mitigate sickness resulting from provocative motion. We investigated whether auditory cues could increase anticipation and subsequently reduce motion sickness. Participants (N = 20) were exposed on a sled on a rail track to two 15-min conditions. Both were identical in terms of...

An adaptive secondary mirror (ASM) is currently being developed for the UH2.2 telescope, consisting of a slumped 620mm convex aspherical facesheet, manipulated by 210 variable-reluctance actuators and supported on a siliconaluminium alloy support structure. The total power dissipation of the actuators is expected to be under 3 Watts. The ASM...

This study tested the hypothesis that in human aging, a decreased intramuscular acylcarnitine status is associated with (pre-)frailty, reduced physical performance, and altered mitochondrial function. We used a cross-sectional study design with well-matched fit and (pre-)frail old males and females, using young males and females as healthy...

Although the effect of motion predictability on motion sickness seems common knowledge, relevant literature is scarce. We therefore performed two experiments. In Experiment A, 17 subjects were exposed to 15 minutes of repeated forward/backward motions on a linear sled, repeated within subjects in three ways: 1) using identical motions...

Cube satellite (cubesat) is a specific realization of a smallsat that is characterized by its volume changing in increments of 1dm3, or 1U. A (popular) 3U format cubesat is furthermore classified as a Nano satellite, as it typically has a mass between 1 and 10 kg. Within CubeSATs expanding the downlink data bandwidth is one of the central...

Car handling, and hence, safety, is affected by the way we estimate speed. Speed, however, is often underestimated in degraded visual environments, including virtual environments such as driving simulators. In simulators the visual and physical motion are typically incongruent as limited by quality and amplitude, respectively, which may cause a...

We investigated whether motion sickness analogous to carsickness can be studied in a moving base simulator, despite the limited motion envelope. Importantly, to avoid simulator sickness, vision outside the simulator cabin was restricted. Participants (N = 16) were exposed blindfolded to 15-min lateral sinusoidal motion at 0.2 Hz and 0.35 Hz on...

Vection, i.e. a visually induced illusory sense of self-motion, is assumed to play an essential role in visually induced motion sickness (VIMS). However, its precise role is unknown. Following the sensory conflict theory, a constant state of vection is not expected to lead to a visual-vestibular conflict whereas variability in vection, i.e....

‘Blue Bird - Concomitant generation of energy and chemicals from biomass waste streams’ (5.4111) is a 2-year TKI innovation project financed by RVO (reference TEBE 115001) in which a number of technologies have been developed for the recovery of valuable compounds (BTX, ethylene) from gasification product gas in co-production schemes. The...

BACKGROUND: Regular treatments of Ménière's disease (MD) vary largely, and no single satisfactory treatment exists. A complementary treatment popular among Dutch and Belgian patients involves eyeglasses with weak asymmetric base-in prisms, with a perceived high success rate. An explanatory mechanism is, however, lacking. OBJECTIVE: To speculate...

Carsickness is associated with a mismatch between actual and anticipated sensory signals. Occupants of automated vehicles, especially when using a display, are at higher risk of becoming carsick than drivers of conventional vehicles. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of positioning of in-vehicle displays, and subsequent available...

In a collaborative research project, TNO and The Boeing Company developed a Spatial Disorientation Investigation Tool (SDIT) to support the analysis of recorded aircraft motions for their potential of inducing spatial disorientation in pilots. The currently available tool automatically recognizes the vestibular illusions which generally occur in...

Bewegingsziekte is geen stoornis, maar een normale reactie op een niet-normale omstandigheid waarin bewegingen centraal staan, zoals rijden, varen, vliegen en virtual reality. Bijna iedereen kan bewegingsziekte krijgen, vooropgesteld dat ten minste één evenwichtsorgaan functioneert. Alleen als geen van beide evenwichtsorganen functioneert,...

This study provides an overview of existing palynological and chronological data of the northern Meuse valley which have been collected over recent decades. The palynological data were used to make a vegetation reconstruction in time and space for the Lateglacial and early Holocene. The vegetation development is strongly influenced by the rapid...

Obesity is a well-known risk factor for osteoarthritis, but it is unknown what it does on cartilage repair. Here we investigated whether a high fat diet (HFD) influences cartilage repair in a mouse model of cartilage repair. We fed DBA/1 mice control or HFD (60% energy from fat). After 2 weeks, a full thickness cartilage defect was made in the...

Visually induced motion sickness (VIMS) is a well-known sensation in virtual environments and simulators, typically characterized by a variety of symptoms such as pallor, sweating, dizziness, fatigue, and/or nausea. Numerous methods to reduce VIMS have been previously introduced; however, a reliable countermeasure is still missing. In the...
