Ankle dorsiflexion range of motion is associated with kinematic but not kinetic variables related to bilateral drop-landing performance at various drop heights.

Limited evidence is available concerning ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (DF ROM) and its relationship with landing performance from varying drop heights. The aim of this investigation was to deter...

Similar Cardioventilatory but Greater Neuromuscular Stimuli With Interval Drop Jump Than With Interval Running.

Drop jumps and high-intensity interval running are relevant training methods to improve explosiveness and endurance performance, respectively. Combined training effects might, however, be achieved by ...

The Effect of Dietary Nitrate Supplementation on Linear Running Sprint Performance, Agility and Vertical Jump Performance in a Rested and Fatigued State

Dietary nitrate (NO3-) supplementation has been shown to improve skeletal muscle contractility and fatigue resistance, particularly in fast-twitch (type II) muscle fibers. Furthermore, NO3...

Implication of Stiffness of the Hamstrings, Achilles Tendon and Calf Muscles for Jumping Performance

For optimal jumping performance an adequate interaction of muscles and tendons is required. A parameter in the functional evaluation of both structures is their stiffness (resistance of th...

Evaluation of Vertical Height in Anterior Maxillary Sandwich Osteotomy: Simultaneous Versus Delayed Implant Placement

Vertical bone height has always presented challenge for the clinicians especially in the anterior aesthetic zone. Therefore, this trial will attempt to compare whether better vertical bone...

Proprioception in the Improvement of Sports Performance in Long Jumpers.

Introduction: In jumping sports the tendinopathies of patellar and Achilles tendon are very frequent. Sports performance is the action that optimizes the relationship between physical abil...

Nutrition and Agility Training Effect on Performance in Tennis Players

The main aim of this study is to determine the effect of carbohydrate loading with combination of agility training in performance of tennis players as previous studies did not show the com...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The length of the face determined by the distance of separation of jaws. Occlusal vertical dimension (OVD or VDO) or contact vertical dimension is the lower face height with the teeth in centric occlusion. Rest vertical dimension (VDR) is the lower face height measured from a chin point to a point just below the nose, with the mandible in rest position. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p250)

The administration of therapeutic agents drop by drop, as eye drops, ear drops, or nose drops. It is also administered into a body space or cavity through a catheter. It differs from irrigation in that the irrigate is removed within minutes, but the instillate is left in place.

Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.


An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
