Altered foot loading during weight bearing is suggested to play a role in the development of patellofemoral pain (PFP). This study aimed to determine foot loading characteristics associated with PFP by assessing center of pressure (COP) during single limb loading in individuals with PFP compared to non-injured controls.

Stroke individuals frequently have balance problems and impaired arm movements that affect their daily activities. We investigated the influence of target uncertainty and the side of the brain lesion ...
In this study, we seek to replace conventional force platforms with a single accelerometer for measuring Center of Pressure trajectories, in order to achieve portability and convenience without sacrif...
Strategies that underload the surgical limb following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLr) are observed in submaximal tasks. It is not known what underlies these strategies in early rehabi...
The single-limb stance with closed eyes has been widely used to evaluate chronic ankle instability as static balance; however, there was lack of consideration of whether difference in age, frequency o...
Clinically, normalization of gait following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLr) is defined as the absence of observable deviations. However, biomechanical studies report altered knee mech...
Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability in the U.S. Individuals with hemiparesis due to stroke often have difficulty bearing weight on their legs and transferring weight from o...
The purpose of this prospective randomized clinical study was to compare implant survival, patient satisfaction, and radiographic, clinical, and aesthetic outcomes following immediate load...
Pressure ulcers are severe injuries and wounds causing a substantial burden on patients, caregivers, and on healthcare systems worldwide. There is common agreement, that effective pressure...
This study is a prospective, single-center evaluation of the impact of the variability in platelet response after loading with clopidogrel on the peri-interventional risk of patients under...
Twelve individuals with above knee limb loss, 12 individuals with below knee limb loss,15 healthy individuals will be participants of the study. Participants with lower limb loss will eval...
Perception of painful and nonpainful phantom sensations that occur following the complete or partial loss of a limb. The majority of individuals with an amputated extremity will experience the impression that the limb is still present, and in many cases, painful.

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.
Blood pressure levels that are between normotension and hypertension. Individuals with prehypertension are at a higher risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. Generally, prehypertension is defined as SYSTOLIC PRESSURE of 131-139 mm Hg and/or DIASTOLIC PRESSURE of 81-89 when the optimal is 120/80 mm Hg. For diabetics and other metabolism diseases the prehypertension is around 110-129/70-79 mm Hg.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
Techniques and routines designed to prevent or reverse unwanted effects of weightlessness experienced during actual and simulated space flight, including physiologic changes related to removal of gravitational loading. Specific measures include creation of artificial gravity, exercise, low-level lower body negative pressure, and use of anti-deconditioning devices.

Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
