Oral glucocorticoids (GC) preserve muscle strength and prolong walking in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Although vertebral fractures have been reported in boys taking GC, fracture rates...
'Cross-education' is the increase in strength or functional performance of an untrained limb after unilateral training. A major limitation for clinical translation from unilateral injury includes know...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the acute effect of capsaicin supplementation on performance and physiological responses during high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE).
Climate change scenarios indicate an increase in the intensity and frequency of droughts in several regions of the world in the 21st century, especially in Southern Europe, highlighting the threat to ...

The aim of this study is to investigate the Reliability and construct validity of the Turkish version of the Prosthesis donning and doffing questionnaire in transtibial amputees.
This study will assess the effectiveness of a high-intensity intermittent games intervention (HIIG) on cardiorespiratory fitness and corporal composition. Fifty-four children, aged 9-12 ye...
Sedation is very important in critical care. Critically ill patients are submitted to many stressor factors that have potential to affect longterm outcomes. However, oversedation is associ...
The purpose of this research study is to investigate the effectiveness of a combinatorial therapy of breathing low oxygen in short bursts-acute intermittent hypoxia (AIH) and upper limb tr...
Alternative doffing strategies may help prevent self-contamination of staff members when using PPE. The study aims to determine which among the suggested methods in the literature that hav...
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
Method in which prolonged electrocardiographic recordings are made on a portable tape recorder (Holter-type system) or solid-state device ("real-time" system), while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It is useful in the diagnosis and management of intermittent cardiac arrhythmias and transient myocardial ischemia.
Standards for limiting worker exposure to airborne contaminants. They are the maximum concentration in air at which it is believed that a particular substance will not produce adverse health effects with repeated daily exposure. It can be a time-weighted average (TLV-TWA), a short-term value (TLV-STEL), or an instantaneous value (TLV-Ceiling). They are expressed either as parts per million (ppm) or milligram per cubic meter (mg/m3).
Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.
Usual level of physical activity that is less than 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity on most days of the week.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
