The Spine Kinematics and Center of Pressure Excursion During Functional Task Vertebral Compression Fractures Subjects

2019-10-28 13:57:14 | BioPortfolio


This study aimed to assess the sensory and kinematic components of the limits of stability (LOS) test in patients with vertebral compression fracture (VCF) .


This study enrolled adults with VCF (VCF group), older adult without spinal deformity (NE group), and young adults (NY group). The Biodex balance system was employed to calculate the balance score and the LOS of participants. An inertia motion system was used to record kinematic data. The center of pressure (COP) signals of postural stability and LOS were used to calculate the frequency power spectrum for interpreting the sensory component.

Comparison of whole body sagittal alignment during directed versus natural, relaxed standing postures in young, healthy adults.

Imaging for adult spinal deformity is conventionally performed in a directed manner to assess the most upright standing posture one can assume. However, this method does not reflect an individual's na...

Making drug policy in summer-drug checking in Australia as providing more heat than light.

There was an exceptional drug policy debate in Australia over the summer of 2018-2019 regarding the availability of drug checking (pill-testing) services at festivals. Drug checking is not a new inter...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

The anterior concavity in the curvature of the lumbar and cervical spine as viewed from the side. The term usually refers to abnormally increased curvature (hollow back, saddle back, swayback). It does not include lordosis as normal mating posture in certain animals ( = POSTURE + SEX BEHAVIOR, ANIMAL).

A condition characterized by inactivity, decreased responsiveness to stimuli, and a tendency to maintain an immobile posture. The limbs tend to remain in whatever position they are placed (waxy flexibility). Catalepsy may be associated with PSYCHOTIC DISORDERS (e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA, CATATONIC), nervous system drug toxicity, and other conditions.

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

Persons with no known significant health problems who are recruited to participate in research to test a new drug, device, or intervention as controls for a patient group. (from, accessed 2/14/2013)
