A Remote Laboratory in Engineering Measurement
TLDR
A particular setup specially designed for remotely measuring and determining mechanical material properties and its combination with the design of a highly interactive user interface is reported. Expand
A new type haptics-based virtual environment system for assembly training of complex products
Virtual reality (VR)-based assembly training has been an interesting topic for the last decades. Generally, there are two shortcomings for nowadays virtual assembly training systems. One is that theExpand
Usefulness of six diagnostic and screening measures for undernutrition in predicting length of hospital stay: a comparative analysis.
TLDR
Despite assessing different dimensions of nutritional status, undernutrition by AA-CCM and PG-SGA, risk of undernutrition assessed by NRS-2002 and MUST, and low HGS and PA independently predict longer LOS in hospitalized patients. Expand
A review of virtual reality and haptics for product assembly (part 1): rigid parts
Purpose – Virtual reality (VR) for product assembly has been studied for more than 20 years but its practical application in industry is still very much in its infancy. Haptics is a new and importantExpand
A review of virtual reality and haptics for product assembly: from rigid parts to soft cables
Purpose – The use of virtual reality for product assembly has been studied for more than 20 years; however its practical application in industry is still very much in its infancy. Haptics is a newExpand
Virtual reality and haptics for dental surgery: a personal review
TLDR
A comprehensive survey of virtual reality and haptics for dental surgery simulation and training for dentists and their typical systems is provided. Expand
Handgrip strength measurement as a predictor of hospitalization costs
TLDR
Handgrip strength (HGS) measurement at hospital admission is an inexpensive, noninvasive and easy-to-use method that has clinical potential to predict hospitalization costs. Expand
Women in engineering: Addressing the gender gap, exploring trust and our unconscious bias
TLDR
The paper draws on the perspectives of four women at different stages of their career and their lived experiences of being female in the engineering sector to provide an insight into how to address the gender gap by exploring the authors' own notions of trust and unconscious bias. Expand
Accuracy of Siri and Brozek equations in the percent body fat estimation in older adults
TLDR
The results of the present study show that the use of Brozek equation may correspond to a more accurate alternative than Siri equation for the conversion of BD in %BF in older adults. Expand
Portuguese Universities Sharing Remote Laboratories
TLDR
This paper describes a pedagogical assignment based on a cooperative work involving teachers/students from two Portuguese universities, believing in the relevance of Information and Communication Technologies (ITs) in teaching/learning methodologies and in cooperative teaching methods. Expand
