    Design, Manufacturing and Assessment of a Stiffness Measurement Tool From Clinical Aspect, for Diagnosing Anterior Cruciate Ligament During Arthroscopy

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Shokrani, Amir Hossein (Author) ; Saadat Foumani, Mahmoud (Supervisor) ; Narimani, Roya (Co-Advisor)
    Every year a significant number of people in the world suffer knee injuries due to sport activities and accidents. Ligament tearing accounts for majority of knee injury cases. Clinical tests for diagnosing ligament injuries, give us just qualitative results. Modern pieces of equipment quickly and precisely give us the status of ligaments. In this project, we attempt to design and manufacture a clinical equipment that could log ligament’s stiffness during the arthroscopy; such that this information could be screened throughout the test  

    Modeling and Analysis of Pregnant Women Uterus Under Vehicle Vibrations

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Irannejad Parizi, Mostafa (Author) ; Ahmadian, Mohammad Taghi (Supervisor) ; Firoozbakhsh, Keikhosrow (Co-Supervisor) ; Mohammadi, Hadi (Co-Supervisor)
    Nowadays, the use of vehicles is inevitable for all people including pregnant females. Vehicle vibrations during passing road bumps and holes is one of the pregnant females’ concerns. The aim of the present study is to develop a biomechanical model of a Uterus and Fetus Set (UFS) to evaluate its response to the inferior excitation, caused by the vehicle passing over speed bumps. The most important innovation of this research is "Analysis of the effect of vehicle speed and speed bumps characteristics on the risk of injury to the fetus." "Modeling the pregnant uterus complex separately from other abdominal organs", "Biomechanical modeling based on CT scan data from a real subject", "Providing... 

    Feasibility of Detecting the Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Using Inertial Sensors

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ahmadi, Reza (Author) ; Farahmand, Farzam (Supervisor)
    Every year, a significant number of people around the world suffer from anterior cruciate ligament injury. Rapid and low-cost diagnosis of anterior cruciate ligament injury is important to prevent further complications as well as timely treatment. Due to the disadvantages of each diagnostic methods, the development of alternative methods for diagnosing anterior cruciate ligament injury is still of interest to researchers. Meanwhile, several studies have shown that the kinematics of the knee joint are different for injured and healthy anterior cruciate ligament. Due to the capability of inertial sensors for kinematic measurement of joints, their use to diagnose damaged anterior cruciate...
