Preferred walking speed (PWS) is an indicator of walking ability, prosthetic walking potential, and function following a lower-limb amputation (LLA). There is a link between lower-limb muscle performance and PWS in individuals with LLA. However, the ability of select hip muscle performance parameters to determine PWS in these individuals still needs to be thoroughly investigated.

Name: Gait & posture
Power - or the wielding of power - is an evitable and necessary component of the way organisations function. This is because power forms the basis of 'getting things done', 'making a difference' and a...
It has been highlighted that obesity influences the gait reducing walking velocity, stride length, ankle dorsal flexion at initial contact and ankle power generation. Meanwhile, step width, double sup...
Oscillatory activity within sensorimotor networks is characterized by time-varying changes in phase and power. The influence of interactions between sensorimotor oscillatory phase and power on human m...
Neuromuscular impairment associated with cerebral palsy (CP) often leads to life-long walking deficits. Our goal was to evaluate the ability of a novel untethered wearable ankle exoskeleton to reduce ...
Cyclists with flow limitations in the iliac arteries complain of pain and loss of power. To investigate whether pedal power measurement has added value in diagnosing the underlying cause of flow limit...
Ambulatory children with cerebral palsy (CP) experience walking limitations which negatively influence their ability to physically participate in day to day life. The investigators propose...
The major problem in stroke survivors that is being addressed in this research project is walking asymmetry, i.e., difference between the legs during walking (e.g. steps on the more affect...
This study determines the effects of posture on time up and go test. Half of the subjects will assume a high-power posture, while the other half will assume a low-power posture.

The primary goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the DBS to the fornix/NbM among patients who are diagnosed as AD according to a series of evaluations including cer...
Treatment using irradiation with light of low power intensity so that the effects are a response to the light and not due to heat. A variety of light sources, especially low-power lasers are used.
Large vessels propelled by power or sail used for transportation on rivers, seas, oceans, or other navigable waters. Boats are smaller vessels propelled by oars, paddles, sail, or power; they may or may not have a deck.
An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.
Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.
Recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.
