The new device with digital technology provides a new avenue to enable clinicians to communicate wirelessly with the imbedded core system such that they can adjust the electrical stimulati...
An orthosis in the ballet shoe to see if pain reduction during dancing on pointes will decrease. One group of pre-preprofessional ballet dancers will receive an orthosis and will train ...
There is no definite evidence for the conservative treatment of pes planus. We want to verify the combination efficacy of orthosis and toe walking exercise for the treatment of pes planus.
A randomized clinical trial, with patients treated either by a custom thermoplastic orthosis or by the Kirschner wire with the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint extended. Evaluating the ...
Prospective, international, multi-center, open-labeled, randomized, controlled cross-over trial to evaluate effectiveness and benefits in patients with lower limb impairment in activities ...
The Ponseti method for treating congenital talipes equinovarus requires an orthosis to maintain correction after manipulation and casting, typically the 'boots and bar'. Non-compliance with the orthos...
This study investigated the effects of a contoured, prefabricated foot orthosis and a flat insole on plantar pressure and tibial acceleration while walking in defence boots. Twenty-eight adults walked...
In this study, ring orthosis design and manufacturing was performed by using rapid prototyping technology.
To evaluate the effectiveness of twister wrap orthosis (TWO) on foot pressure distribution and postural balance in children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy (CP).
The twelve spinal nerves on each side of the thorax. They include eleven INTERCOSTAL NERVES and one subcostal nerve. Both sensory and motor, they supply the muscles and skin of the thoracic and abdominal walls.
A syndrome associated with traumatic injury to the cervical or upper thoracic regions of the spinal cord characterized by weakness in the arms with relative sparing of the legs and variable sensory loss. This condition is associated with ischemia, hemorrhage, or necrosis involving the central portions of the spinal cord. Corticospinal fibers destined for the legs are spared due to their more external location in the spinal cord. This clinical pattern may emerge during recovery from spinal shock. Deficits may be transient or permanent.
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
A syndrome associated with damage to the spinal cord above the mid thoracic level (see SPINAL CORD INJURIES) characterized by a marked increase in the sympathetic response to minor stimuli such as bladder or rectal distention. Manifestations include HYPERTENSION; TACHYCARDIA (or reflex bradycardia); FEVER; FLUSHING; and HYPERHIDROSIS. Extreme hypertension may be associated with a STROKE. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp538 and 1232; J Spinal Cord Med 1997;20(3):355-60)
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
