The effect of a passive trunk exoskeleton on functional performance in healthy individuals.

The objective of this study was to assess the effect of a passive trunk exoskeleton on functional performance for various work related tasks in healthy individuals. 18 healthy men performed 12 tasks. ...

Simulated driving: The added value of dynamic testing in the assessment of visuo-spatial neglect after stroke.

Visuo-spatial neglect (VSN) is generally assessed with neuropsychological paper-and-pencil tasks, which are often not sensitive enough to detect mild and/or well-compensated VSN. It is of utmost impor...

Comparison of simultaneous static standing balance data on a pressure mat and force plate in typical children and in children with cerebral palsy.

Balance testing is an important component in treatment planning and outcome assessment for children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). Objective measurement for static standing balance is typically conducted i...

Prioritizing Useful Experience Replay for Heuristic Dynamic Programming-Based Learning Systems.

The adaptive dynamic programming controller usually needs a long training period because the data usage efficiency is relatively low by discarding the samples once used. Prioritized experience replay ...

Assessment of metallic patient support devices and other items at 7-Tesla: Findings applied to 46 additional devices.

Recently, the first 7-Tesla MR system was approved for clinical use in Europe and the United States. Unfortunately, few metallic objects have undergone testing in association with this high-field-stre...

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).

A non-invasive assessment of the stability of tissue-embedded prosthetic devices such as dental implants.

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.
