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...
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. ...
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...
Objetive To identify the functional status in self-care performance of elderly inpatients, through subjective and objective evaluations. Methods Fifty-five pairs of elderly and their respective caregi...
The use of force platform technologies to assess standing balance is common across a range of clinical areas. Numerous researchers have evaluated the low-cost Wii Balance Board (WBB) for its utility i...
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)...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.

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.
