We assessed proprioception in the knee using the angle reproduction test in 20 healthy volunteers, ten patients with acute anterior instability and 20 patients with chronic anterior instability after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). In addition, the Lysholm-knee score, ligament laxity and patient satisfaction were determined. Acute(More)
The growing interest toward active safety systems leads to a rapid development of different sensors and systems. One key aspect for all systems is the knowledge about the car environment. This knowledge is essential for safety applications such as PreCrash. A PreCrash system generates information about location, moving direction and relative velocity of(More)
Automotive pedestrian protection systems will be introduced in the EU in short term to reduce the number of accidents and injury fatalities. As with any safety issue, a comprehensive approach comprising both active and passive safety elements should be followed and it is also valid for pedestrian protection. Passive safety short term solutions can be(More)
This article deals with different approaches of multi-sensor data fusion by considering two automotive applications, namely PreCrash and Pedestrian Recognition. Apart from providing a basic introduction to fusion theory, this article also discusses the challenging demands and requirements for the automotive applications. The presented PreCrash application(More)
We examined our experience and, in particular, complications associated with total hip arthroplasty in obese and morbidly obese patients. We prospectively gathered 50 patients in a matched control series including 25 obese and morbidly obese patients. All patients were operated using the direct lateral approach and standard postoperative protocols.(More)
