To evaluate the effect of (new) treatments or analyse prevalence and risk factors of contractures, rating scales are used based on joint range of motion. However, cut-off points for levels of severity vary between scales, and it seems unclear how cut-off points relate to function. The purpose of this study was to compare severity ratings of different rating scales for the shoulder and elbow and relate these with functional range of motion.
Arthroscopic and open debridement arthroplasty for elbow arthrosis produce excellent results. Resection of the tip of the olecranon and coronoid, as well as debridement of the associated fossae, is frequently described as sufficient for restoring range of motion and reducing pain.
The aim of this study was to investigate the validity of assessment of intraoral digital photography in the evaluation of dental restorations.
Digital tracking of human motion offers the potential to monitor a wide range of activities detecting normal versus abnormal performance of tasks. We examined the ability of a wearable, conformal sensor system, fabricated from stretchable electronics with contained accelerometers and gyroscopes, to specifically detect, monitor, and define motion signals and "signatures," associated with tasks of daily living activities. The sensor system was affixed to the dominant hand of healthy volunteers (n = 4) who the...
There is little description of the effect of cup position on the hip range of motion in total hip arthroplasty. The purpose is to evaluate the effect of cup medialization/lateralization with a compensatory increase/decrease in femoral offset on the hip range of motion, and whether the bone morphology of the anterior inferior iliac spine affects hip range of motion in total hip arthroplasty.
Despite the prevalence of pre-obesity and obesity, the physical capabilities of pre-obese/obese individuals are not well documented. As an effort to address this, this study investigated the pre-obesity and obesity impacts on joint range of motion (RoM) for twenty-two body joint motions. A publicly available passive RoM dataset was analysed. Three BMI groups (normal-weight, pre-obese, and obese [Class I]) were statistically compared in joint RoM. The pre-obese and obese groups were found to have significant...
BACKGROUND This study investigated the influence of surgical timing on the treatment of terrible triad of the elbow (TTE). MATERIAL AND METHODS After exclusion, 63 patients were enrolled in this study: 20 patients were classified into the emergency group (group A, within 24 h after injury), 26 into the early surgery group (group B, from 4 to 14 days after injury), and 17 into the delayed surgery group (group C, more than 14 days after injury). All patients underwent the same approach, and elbow motion and c...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate long-term outcomes of the free functioning gracilis transfer in children with traumatic total brachial plexus palsy. We used the free functioning gracilis transfer to reconstruct elbow flexion and prehension in 17 children with a mean age of 13.4 years (range 3-17) who were followed-up over a mean period of 6 years (range 2-16). The transferred gracilis delivered a stable elbow flexion with a useful power, as well as reconstructed active finger motion. In 3-11-year-...
Mobile technology offers the prospect of delivering high-value care with increased patient access and reduced costs. Advances in mobile health (mHealth) and telemedicine have been inhibited by the lack of interconnectivity between devices and software and inability to process consumer sensor data. The objective of this study was to preliminarily validate a motion-based machine learning software development kit (SDK) for the shoulder compared with a goniometer for 4 arcs of motion: (1) abduction, (2) forward...
Diaphyseal fractures of the distal humerus have a high rate of union when treated with a functional brace or an above-elbow cast (AEC). This study compares alignment of the humerus and motion of the elbow after functional brace or AEC treatment. One-hundred and five consecutive patients with a closed, extra-articular fracture of the distal humeral diaphysis were identified in the orthopedic trauma databases of 3 hospitals between 2003 and 2012. Seventy-five patients with a follow-up of at least 6 months or ...
This work sought to assess the inter-observer agreement among expert nurses by using digital photographs and between these experts and the nursing registries in the electronic clinical record in the identification and degree of PL.
Scientific photography is an important and indispensable tool in plant tissue culture research: photographs should be taken throughout a project for documentation. The aim of photography in plant tissue culture should be to illustrate clearly the differentiation, growth, and developmental stages occurring in vitro. Poor-quality scientific photography in tissue culture research and professional reports results in poor documentation. If visual aspects of the tissue culture are not well documented or not well ...
Assessing the quality of the motion stability is important to evaluating the performance of video stabilization algorithms. This paper presents a novel quality assessment scheme for the video motion stability in a full-reference (FR) manner. Given ideally stable videos and their corresponding shaky videos, our method measures the geodesic distance between motion paths of the stable and the stabilized videos. Due to the use of the Riemannian metric defined on the manifold of spatial transformations, our meth...
Magnetic and inertial measurement units (MIMUs) may provide an accessible, three-dimensional, in-field alternative to laboratory-restricted marker-based motion capture. Existing upper limb MIMU models have predominantly been validated with low-velocity motion and their suitability for use with sport-based movements remains relatively untested. We propose a MIMU system approach to enable the estimation of anatomically meaningful and participant-specific elbow kinematics with considerations for use with crick...
The measurement of rearfoot kinematics by placing reflective markers on the shoe heel assumes its motion is identical to the foot's motion. Studies have compared foot and shoe kinematics during running but with conflicting results. The primary purpose of this study was to compare shoe and calcaneus three-dimensional range of motion during running. A secondary purpose was to determine the effect of a less rigid heel counter on tibia motion.
The relationship of hip range of motion (ROM) to shoulder, elbow, abdominal, and back injuries remains undefined.
An assessment of medial elbow stability is essential to the patient with an ulnar collateral ligament injury. Ultrasound imaging can be used to assess medial elbow stability. This study determined the effect of the elbow flexion angle on the medial elbow joint space during clinical tests of medial elbow stability.
Objective measurement of target lesions in vitiligo is important for clinical practice and trials, yet no a preferred tool has been defined. Reported digital tools have shortcomings related to feasibility aspects and often lack information on validity, reliability and responsiveness. Moreover, studies are not yet based on UV photography.
OBJECTIVE In this study, the authors sought to identify the relationship between breathing and elbow flexion in patients with a traumatic brachial plexus injury (TBPI) who undergo a phrenic nerve (PN) transfer to restore biceps flexion. More specifically, the authors studied whether biceps strength and the maximal range of active elbow flexion differ between full inspiration and expiration, and whether electromyography (EMG) activity in the biceps differs between forced maximum breathing during muscular res...
Manual therapy has been shown to increase range of motion (ROM) in hip osteoarthritis (OA). However, the optimal intensity of force during joint mobilization is not known.
Greater passive hip range of motion (ROM) has been associated with greater dynamic knee valgus and thus the potential for increased risk of anterior cruciate ligament injuries. Normative data for passive hip ROM by sex are lacking.
