376-1168-00LSports Biomechanics Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen W3 KP2VS. Lorenzetti
KurzbeschreibungVarious types of sport are studied from a mechanical point of view. Of particular interest are the key parameters of a sport as well as the performance relevant indicators.
LernzielThe aim of this lecture is to enable the students to study a sport from a biomechanical viewpoint and to develop significant models for which evaluations of the limitations and verifications can be carried out.
InhaltSport biomechanics is concerned with the physical and mechanical basic principles of sports. The lecture requires an in-depth mechanical understanding on the side of the student. In this respect, the pre-attendance of the lectures Biomechanics II and Movement and Sports Biomechanics or an equivalent course is expected. The human body is treated as a mechanical system during sport. The interaction of the active and passive movements and outside influences is analysed. Using sports such as ski-jumping, cycling, or weight training, applicable models are created, analyzed and suitable measuring methods are introduced. In particular, the constraints as well as the limitations of the models are of great relevance. The students develop their own models for different sport types, critically discuss the advantages and disadvantages and evaluate applicable measurement methods.
SkriptHandout will be distributed.

227-0384-00LUltrasound Fundamentals, Imaging, and Medical Applications
Course is offered for the last time in Spring Semester 2020.
W4 KP3GO. Göksel
KurzbeschreibungUltrasound is the only imaging modality that is nonionizing (safe), real-time, cost-effective, and portable, with many medical uses in diagnosis, intervention guidance, surgical navigation, and as a therapeutic option. In this course, we introduce conventional and prospective applications of ultrasound, starting with the fundamentals of ultrasound physics and imaging.
LernzielStudents can use the fundamentals of ultrasound, to analyze and evaluate ultrasound imaging techniques and applications, in particular in the field of medicine, as well as to design and implement basic applications.
InhaltUltrasound is used in wide range of products, from car parking sensors, to assessing fault lines in tram wheels. Medical imaging is the eye of the doctor into body; and ultrasound is the only imaging modality that is nonionizing (safe), real-time, cheap, and portable. Some of its medical uses include diagnosing breast and prostate cancer, guiding needle insertions/biopsies, screening for fetal anomalies, and monitoring cardiac arrhythmias. Ultrasound physically interacts with the tissue, and thus can also be used therapeutically, e.g., to deliver heat to treat tumors, break kidney stones, and targeted drug delivery. Recent years have seen several novel ultrasound techniques and applications – with many more waiting in the horizon to be discovered.

This course covers ultrasonic equipment, physics of wave propagation, numerical methods for its simulation, image generation, beamforming (basic delay-and-sum and advanced methods), transducers (phased-, linear-, convex-arrays), near- and far-field effect, imaging modes (e.g., A-, M-, B-mode), Doppler and harmonic imaging, ultrasound signal processing techniques (e.g., filtering, time-gain-compensation, displacement tracking), image analysis techniques (deconvolution, real-time processing, tracking, segmentation, computer-assisted interventions), acoustic-radiation force, plane-wave imaging, contrast agents, micro-bubbles, elastography, biomechanical characterization, high-intensity focused ultrasound and therapy, lithotripsy, histotripsy, photo-acoustics phenomenon and opto-acoustic imaging, as well as sample non-medical applications such as the basics of non-destructive testing (NDT).

Hands-on exercises: These will help to apply the concepts learned in the course, using simulation environments (such as Matlab k-Wave and FieldII toolboxes). The exercises will involve a mix of design, implementation, and evaluation examples commonly encountered in practical applications.

Project: Current and relevant applications in the field of ultrasound are offered as project topics. Projects will be carried out throughout the course, where the project reporting and presentations will be due towards the end of the semester. These will be part of the assessment in grading.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesPrerequisites: Familiarity with basic numerical methods.

Number of participants limited to 30.
W3 KP2GG. Bauer, R. Brauchli, G. J. Jenny
KurzbeschreibungThe fast-changing high-performance economy is highly dependent on healthy employees – and at the same time is putting their health at risk. Expectations of employees regarding health@work are rising. In a workshop format, students learn how to develop effective, exemplary projects to promote good working conditions, work-life balance or healthy lifestyles in companies.
LernzielAfter active participation in the course, students will
• Know the key individual, team-level, and organizational factors influencing health@work
• Be familiar with health-related challenges and opportunities of a changing world of work
• Know intervention strategies for improving working conditions, work-life balance and health behaviors in companies
• Be able to design an exemplary intervention project– based on key principles and a systematic planning cycle
InhaltThe globalization and the digital transformation of our economy leads to fast changes in organizations and of working conditions. Work becomes more flexible regarding time, location and employment contracts. Employees become more demanding regarding their autonomy, the quality of working life and their work-life balance. In this dynamic context, offering standardized health promotion programs in companies is not sufficient any more. Employers and employees need to jointly develop tailored approaches how to continuously assess and improve health@work. Thus, we want to enable you to support companies in this process.
The course consists of four parts. The first part with four sessions provides an introduction into approaches to promote health@work. The lectures will present and discuss these approaches using practical examples and discuss them with the students.
Session 1: Course overview; dynamic, challenging context of our economy; intervention approaches; core principles and planning steps of a project for promoting health@work
Session 2: Promoting Health @ Work: Improving working conditions
Session 3: Promoting Health @ Work: Lifestyle interventions at work
Session 4: Promoting Health @ Work: Work-Life-Balance and Leisure crafting interventions

The second part aims to identify and sharpen the project ideas developed by students in groups of two. We offer a short version of a design thinking workshop to help students generate innovative ideas. The pitch presentations help to focus on the essence of the own idea and to trigger constructive feedback for improving it.
Session 5: Design thinking workshop: Find your own project idea
Session 6: Pitch: Presentations of the project idea in plenary incl. feedback

The third part has a workshop format. We introduce all students how to practically plan a health@work project. Then the two-person project teams are assigned to four tutors. These tutors support the teams in their systematic, detailed planning of the own project idea. Particularly, students will consider the four principles of successful health promotion projects: systematic planning, participation of stakeholders, combined individual- and environmental-level actions, integration into company routines.
Session 7: Introduction to practical project planning in-a-nutshell
Sessions 8-11: Tutored workshop

In the fourth part, the two-person project teams present their project plan in the plenary, discuss it with all students, and obtain feedback by the course leader.
Sessions 12-13: Presentations & discussions of projects

Given the hands-on workshop character of this lecture, students are required to actively participate in all sessions. Besides raising knowledge on promoting health@work, the students generally improve their project development skills. Also, as the course has students from D-MTEC, D-HEST and D-USYS, it facilitates their transdisciplinary exchange. Transdisciplinary skills are increasingly needed for addressing complex needs in our society.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesA course for students dedicated to applied learning through projects. As the whole course is designed as a hands-on workshop for the students, active participation in all lectures is required. Class size limited to 30 students.

KurzbeschreibungToday, we face the challenge of chronic conditions. Personal coaching approaches are neither scalable nor financially sustainable. The question arises therefore to which degree Digital Health applications are appropriate to address this challenge. In this lecture, students will learn about the need, design and assessment of digital health interventions.
LernzielNHS teams up with Amazon to bring Alexa to patients (The Guardian, July 2019), Contactless cardiac arrest detection using smart devices (Nature Digital Medicine, June 2019), Apple Heart Study demonstrates ability of wearable technology to detect atrial fibrillation (Standford Medicine News, March 2019), Digital health companies raised a total of $4.2B across 180 deals through the first half of 2019. If this pace holds steady, the sector is on track for an $8.4B year in 2019 - and may even top 2018's record-breaking annual funding total. Sean Day, Rocket Health, 2019 Midyear Digital Health Market Update

What are the rationale and implications behind the recent developments in the field of digital health?

Digital Health is the use of information and communication technology for the prevention and treatment of diseases in the everyday life of individuals. It is thus linked to topics such as digital health interventions, digital biomarker, digital coaches and healthcare chatbots, telemedicine, mobile and wearable computing, self-tracking, personalized medicine, connected health, smart homes or smart cars.

In the 20th century, healthcare systems specialized in acute care. In the 21st century, we now face the challenge of dealing with the specific characteristics of chronic conditions. These are now responsible for around 70% of all deaths worldwide and 85% of all deaths in Europe and are associated with an estimated economic loss of $7 trillion between 2011 and 2025. Chronic diseases are characterized in particular by the fact that they require an intervention paradigm that focuses on prevention and lifestyle change. Lifestyle (e.g., diet, physical activity, tobacco or alcohol consumption) can reduce the risk of suffering from a chronic condition or, if already present, can reduce its burden. A corresponding change in lifestyle is, however, only implemented by a fraction of those affected, partly because of missing or inadequate interventions or health literacy, partly due to socio-cultural influences. Individual personal coaching of these individuals is neither scalable nor financially sustainable.

Against this background, the question arises on how to develop evidence-based digital health interventions (DHIs) that allow medical doctors and other caregivers to scale and tailor long-term treatments to individuals in need at sustainable costs. At the intersection of health economics, information systems research, computer science, and behavioral medicine, this lecture has the objective to help students and upcoming healthcare executives interested in the multi-disciplinary field of digital health to better understand the need, design and assessment of DHIs.

After the course, students will be able to...

1. understand the importance of DHIs for the management of chronic conditions
2. understand the anatomy of DHIs
3. know frameworks for the design of DHIs
4. know evaluation criteria for DHIs
5. know technologies for DHIs
6. assess DHIs
7. discuss the advantages and disadvantages of DHIs
InhaltTo reach these learning objectives, the following topics are covered in the lecture and will be discussed based on concrete national and international examples including DHIs from the Center for Digital Health Interventions (Link), a joint initiative of the Department of Management, Technology and Economics at ETH Zurich and the Institute of Technology Management at the University of St.Gallen:

1. Motivation for Digital Health
- The rise of chronic diseases in developed countries
- The discrepancy of acute care and care of chronic diseases
- Lifestyle as medicine and prevention
- From excellence of care in healthcare institutions to excellence of care in everyday life

2. Anatomy of Digital Health Interventions
- Just-in-time adaptive interventions
- Digital biomarker for predicting states of vulnerability
- Digital biomarker for predicting states of receptivity
- Digital coaching and healthcare chatbots

3. Design & Evaluation of Digital Health Interventions
- Overview of design frameworks
- Preparation of DHIs
- Optimization of DHIs
- Evaluation of DHIs
- Implementation of DHIs

4. Digital Health Technologies
- Technologies for telemedicine
- Mobile medical devices
- Virtual, augmented and mixed reality applications incl. live demonstrations
- Privacy and regulatory considerations

The Digital Health lecture is structured in two parts and follows the concept of a hybrid therapy consisting of on-site sessions and complementary online lessons. In the first part, students will learn and discuss the topics of the four learning modules in weekly on-site sessions. Complementary learning material (e.g., video and audio clips), multiple-choice questions and exercises are provided online.

In the second part, students work in teams and will use their knowledge from the first part of the lecture to critically assess DHIs. Each team will then present and discuss the findings of the assessment with their fellow students who will provide peer-reviews. Additional on-site coaching sessions are offered to support the teams with the preparation of their presentations.

376-1217-00LRehabilitation Engineering I: Motor FunctionsW4 KP2V + 1UR. Riener, E. Wilhelm
Kurzbeschreibung“Rehabilitation engineering” is the application of science and technology to ameliorate the handicaps of individuals with disabilities in order to reintegrate them into society. The goal of this lecture is to present classical and new rehabilitation engineering principles and examples applied to compensate or enhance especially motor deficits.
LernzielProvide theoretical and practical knowledge of principles and applications used to rehabilitate individuals with motor disabilities.
Inhalt“Rehabilitation” is the (re)integration of an individual with a disability into society. Rehabilitation engineering is “the application of science and technology to ameliorate the handicaps of individuals with disability”. Such handicaps can be classified into motor, sensor, and cognitive (also communicational) disabilities. In general, one can distinguish orthotic and prosthetic methods to overcome these disabilities. Orthoses support existing but affected body functions (e.g., glasses, crutches), while prostheses compensate for lost body functions (e.g., cochlea implant, artificial limbs). In case of sensory disorders, the lost function can also be substituted by other modalities (e.g. tactile Braille display for vision impaired persons).

The goal of this lecture is to present classical and new technical principles as well as specific examples applied to compensate or enhance mainly motor deficits. Modern methods rely more and more on the application of multi-modal and interactive techniques. Multi-modal means that visual, acoustical, tactile, and kinaesthetic sensor channels are exploited by displaying the patient with a maximum amount of information in order to compensate his/her impairment. Interaction means that the exchange of information and energy occurs bi-directionally between the rehabilitation device and the human being. Thus, the device cooperates with the patient rather than imposing an inflexible strategy (e.g., movement) upon the patient. Multi-modality and interactivity have the potential to increase the therapeutical outcome compared to classical rehabilitation strategies.
In the 1 h exercise the students will learn how to solve representative problems with computational methods applied to exoprosthetics, wheelchair dynamics, rehabilitation robotics and neuroprosthetics.
