Joint power distribution does not change within the contralateral limb one year after unilateral limb loss.

Summary of "Joint power distribution does not change within the contralateral limb one year after unilateral limb loss."

To assist with forward progression during gait, persons with unilateral lower-limb amputation typically perform more work within the unaffected versus affected limb. However, prior cross-sectional (>2years post-amputation) studies cannot necessarily elucidate the origin or evolution of these compensatory mechanics.

Force irradiation effect of kinesiotaping on contralateral muscle activation.

We aimed to determine the force irradiation effect of kinesiotaping (KT) on contralateral muscle activity during unilateral muscle contraction. Forty healthy (26 females, 14 males) subjects were divid...

A three dimensional (3D) Musculoskeletal Finite Element Analysis of DARSN Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) prosthesis for total unilateral alloplastic joint replacement.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the strain and stress distribution for DARSN alloplastic unilateral temporomandibular joint (TMJ) prosthesis and the effects on contralateral natural joint us...

Ipsilateral eye contributions to online visuomotor control of right upper-limb movements.

A limb's initial position is often biased to the right of the midline during activities of daily living. Given this specific initial limb position, visual cues of the limb become first available to th...

Outcomes in Patients with a Calipered Kinematically Aligned TKA That Already Had a Contralateral Mechanically Aligned TKA.

Prior studies suggest kinematically aligned (KA) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) provides some clinical benefits. There are no reports of self-reported outcome measures in patients treated with a calipe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Amputation of a lower limb through the sacroiliac joint.

Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.

The probability distribution associated with two mutually exclusive outcomes; used to model cumulative incidence rates and prevalence rates. The Bernoulli distribution is a special case of binomial distribution.

Surgical procedure to relax the JOINT CAPSULE tissues in a joint that has a reduced range of motion due to CONTRACTURE or TISSUE ADHESIONS or joint deformities.
