Low-back electromyography (EMG) data-driven load classification for dynamic lifting tasks.

Numerous devices have been designed to support the back during lifting tasks. To improve the utility of such devices, this research explores the use of preparatory muscle activity to classify muscle l...

Ultrasound imaging transducer motion during standing postural tasks with and without using transducer fixator.

Changes in the orientation of ultrasound (US) transducer relative to the body surface during dynamic standing tests can affect US measurements.

Taking a Stand: The Effects of Standing Desks on Task Performance and Engagement.

Time spent sitting is associated with negative health outcomes, motivating some individuals to adopt standing desk workstations. This study represents the first investigation of the effects of standin...

Benefit Assessment for Examination and Treatment Methods with Medical Devices of High Hisk: Trade-off between Patient Benefit, Evidence and Access.

The lately inured § 137 h SGB V aims to assess the benefit of new examination and treatment methods with medical devices of class IIb and III. In the future, the decision on the reimbursement eligibi...

How does lower limb dominance influence postural control movements during single leg stance?

The main purposes of the current study were to examine bilateral asymmetry in postural control during single-leg standing between the dominant and non-dominant legs using a novel analysis approach bas...

Cross-over Study of Three Modular Devices for Aid in Patient Standing and Transfer

The main objective of this study is to evaluate via a physiological analysis of the movements involved in standing, the level of forward flexion of the spine (in cm on the horizontal axis)...

Post-Physical Therapy Extension of In-Home Dynamic Standing Table Use in Parkinson Disease

When postural imbalance and gait difficulties emerge in subjects with Parkinson disease, patients are typically referred for a number of physical therapy sessions. However, there is a crit...

A Hemodynamic Comparison of Stationary and Portable Pneumatic Compression Devices

We are comparing two pneumatic compression devices, VenaFlow (stationary) and MCS (portable) in both the supine an standing position. We will start supine and will take 3 baseline measure...

Dynamic Management of Excess Residual Limb Pressure With New Smart Socket Technology

This study centers around the imaging of internal structures of residual limb by means of modern radiographic imaging techniques (Dynamic Radiography-DRSA). The purpose of our research is...

Electrical Stimulation and a Dynamic Orthosis for Stroke Recovery

Objective: To explore the effectiveness of a combined neuromuscular electrical stimulation (ES) and dynamic hand orthosis (DHO) regimen used with a small group of persons with chronic stro...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).

External devices which hold wires or pins that are placed through one or both cortices of bone in order to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment. These devices allow easy access to wounds, adjustment during the course of healing, and more functional use of the limbs involved.

Loose, usually removable intra-oral devices which alter the muscle forces against the teeth and craniofacial skeleton. These are dynamic appliances which depend on altered neuromuscular action to effect bony growth and occlusal development. They are usually used in mixed dentition to treat pediatric malocclusions. (ADA, 1992)

Dynamic cytoplasmic organelles found in almost all cells. They consist of a central core of LIPIDS surrounded by a phospholipid monolayer studded with surface proteins, and are involved in LIPID METABOLISM and storage.

Systematic identification of a population's needs or the assessment of individuals to determine the proper level of services needed.
