  1. 1. Detecting the Vulnerable Plaque

    Detta är en avhandling från Experimental Cardiovascular Research Unit, Lund University

    Författare :Andreas Edsfeldt; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; Carotid plaque; Inflammation; Diabetes; LpPLA2; suPAR; Cytokines; Lipids;

    Sammanfattning : Myocardial infarction and stroke, mainly caused by a rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque, are two of the most common causes of mortality and morbidity in the world. Previous studies have pointed out inflammation, driven by inflammatory lipids, as the keystone in the formation of the rupture prone vulnerable plaque. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ethics of User Involvement in Sensitive Design Situations

    Detta är en avhandling från Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Författare :Susanne Lindberg; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ethics; participatory design; user involvement; design research; children; schizophrenia; cancer; sensitive; vulnerable; design; participation; principles; digital peer support;

    Sammanfattning : While this era of digital technology brings great possibilities for improving the lives of many people with digital healthcare services, the design of these services in turn present challenges that are ethical in nature. Participatory Design (PD) values user involvement in design from a democratic, empowerment and ethical perspective. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Understanding Boundary Conditions for Brain Injury Prediction Finite Element Analysis of Vulnerable Road Users

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Victor S. Alvarez; KTH.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Brain injuries; Vulnerable Road Users; windscreen impacts; Finite Element Analysis; pedestrian accidents; cycling accidents; pediatric neck; Applied Medical Technology; Tillämpad medicinsk teknik;

    Sammanfattning : Vulnerable road users (VRUs) are overrepresented in the statistics on severe and deadly injuries in traffic accidents, most commonly involving the head. The finite element (FE) method presents the possibility to model complex interactions between the human body and vehicles in order to better understand the injury mechanisms. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Predictive models for accidents on urban links - A focus on vulnerable road users

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Technology and Society, Lund University

    Författare :Thomas Jonsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road transport technology; Transportteknik; Transport technology; Teknik; Technological sciences; Stads- och glesbygdsplanering; Town and country planning; speed; links; urban; safety; vulnerable road users; modelling; prediction; crash; traffic safety; accident; Vägtransportteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Much of earlier work on predictive models for accidents has been focused on rural traffic or urban intersections. This work has aimed at identifying and investigating possible improvements to predictive models for accidents on urban links. A special focus has been on the accidents of vulnerable road users.
