Lumbar posture assessment with fabric strain sensors. LQ Vu, KH Kim, LJH Schulze, SL Rajulu.

Date: March 2020. Source: Computers in Biology and Medicine, Volume 118, 103624. Abstract: Astronauts are at risk for low back pain and injury during extravehicular activity because of the deconditioning of the lumbar region and biomechanical demands associated with wearing a spacesuit. To understand and mitigate injury risks, it is necessary to study the lumbar…

Collagen 2A Type B Induction after 3D Bioprinting Chondrocytes In Situ into Osteoarthritic Chondral Tibial Lesion. B Gatenholm, C Lindahl, M Brittberg, S Simonsson.

Date: February 2020. Source: CARTILAGE. https://doi.org/10.1177/1947603520903788 Objective: Large cartilage defects and osteoarthritis (OA) cause cartilage loss and remain a therapeutic challenge. Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting with autologous cells using a computer-aided design (CAD) model generated from 3D imaging has the potential to reconstruct patient-specific features that match an articular joint lesion. Design: To scan a human…
