Uroflowmetry(UF) has been the standard first-line diagnostic tool for the evaluation of pediatric voiding dysfunction. But recently, UF combined with pelvic flow electromyography(EMG) is emphasized and recommended to analyze the separate contributions of the detrusor and bladder outlet and sole UF is discouraged except for the follow-up study after abnormal UF/EMG result(Bauer et al., 2015). However, electrode itself can disturb pelvic floor relaxation and there is no evidence ...
This study will investigate problems with muscle weakness and control using electromyography-a test of nerve-muscle cell communication. Advanced techniques called single fiber electromyography and macro-electromyography, which evaluate individual muscle fibers, will be used. Besides aiding in diagnosis, these tests provide information about disease progression that may be useful in guiding therapy. Adult patients with suspected neurological disorders of muscle control and we...
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of a specific protocol of sEMG-BFB in upper limb hemiparesis added to conventional physical therapy on changes in upper extremity functionality, motor recruitment pattern and range of motion (ROM) compared to the single application of conventional physical therapy. It aims to find a 22.22% difference between both interventions.

The objective of the research is to determine whether the MyotonPRO has a valid and reliable application in facial, head and neck surgery. In addition, the study aims to compare this new technology with current electromyography.
Nowadays there is a growing interest towards non-invasive assessment of urinary dysfunctions in clinical practice. The tendency to use uroflowmetry as a first-line screening tool is based on the inexpensiveness, time efficiency, comfort of the patient, etc. However, it is stated that uroflowmetry as a stand-alone study lacks the potential to make an accurate diagnosis. In regard to this, the International Continence Society indicated that the addition of pelvic floor electromyo...
The aim of this study was to assess the electrical activity of the temporal and masseter muscles in cleft lip and palate (CLP) children with pain-related temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and in CLP individuals with no TMD by means of surface electromyography (sEMG). Another objective was to determine the diagnostic value of electromyography in identifying CLP patients with temporomandibular disorders. The sample comprised 87 children with CLP and mixed dentition. The children ...
Needle Electromyography (EMG) is an important test used to assess muscle and nerve function, but the test can be uncomfortable. It is currently not standard practice to provide any pain-relieving intervention for this procedure. The purpose of this research study is to determine whether auricular (ear) acupuncture will make EMG testing less painful.
To evaluate the compatibility and correlation between noninvasive surface respiratory electromyography and invasive transesophageal diaphragmatic electromyography measurements, as facilitating indicators of neural respiratory drive evaluation during treadmill exercise. Transesophageal diaphragmatic EMG (EMGdi,es) and surface inspiratory EMG, including surface diaphragmatic EMG (EMGdi,sur), surface parasternal intercostal muscle EMG (EMGpara) and surface sternocleidomastoid EMG ...
Urinary incontinence (UI) and overactive bladder (OAB) in women has high prevalence which is increasing with the age. In adults aged 40 and older in the US demonstrated prevalence rate of 27.2% among man and 43.1% among women, respectively. Urine Incontinence was reported to affect 15% of women ages 40 to 49, 25% ages 60 to 69, and 38% of women age 80 and older.
Compare the impact of using rapid maxillary expanders on masticatory muscle activities (Masseter and Anterior Temporalis muscles) between the cross-bite side and non-cross-bite sides of the same preadolescent orthodontic patient before the expansion and after one month of the completion treatment period using surface electromyography device.
Optimizing Function and Independence Through STRIDE aims to implement the STRIDE inpatient hospital mobility program at 8 VAMC sites in a stepped-wedge design and evaluate patient outcomes before and after the program is implemented, as well as the efficacy of a usual vs enhanced implementation design.
The device, a bipolar percutaneous intramuscular electromyography electrode, is intended for use in upper-limb amputation patients who have received the regenerative peripheral nerve interface surgical procedure, in order to enable the use of advanced prosthetic arms and hands.
Optimizing Function and Independence Through iHI-FIVES aims to implement the iHI-FIVES caregiver skills training program at 8 VAMC sites in a stepped- wedge design and evaluate caregiver and patient outcomes before and after the program is implemented, as well as the efficacy of a usual vs enhanced implementation design.
There has been much effort in recent years to better understand the causes of idiopathic scoliosis (IS). Some studies suggested muscle imbalance as a cause of scoliosis based on asymmetric muscular activation. Surface electromyography can evaluate asymmetrical muscular weakness. Therefore, the peak amplitude values can be used to compare the side to side differences in paraspinal muscles. From these findings we improve the exercise method of IS according to muscle weakness and ...
This study plans to learn more about whether simpler diagnostic tests can be used to identify the development of acute neuromuscular loss of function in patients with critical illness and respiratory failure receiving mechanical ventilation. ICU patients admitted to the University of Colorado Hospital will be screened for eligibility and enrollment in the study to receive weekly measurements of nerve and muscle function through nerve conduction studies (NCS), muscle ultrasound ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if increasing the dose and/or dosing frequency of certolizumab pegol (Cimzia) is effective in regaining and optimizing response in patients with moderate to severe Crohn's disease.
A cross-sectional descriptive study, in which the surface electromyographic activity of five shoulder muscles was compared in three populations: older adults, middle-aged adults and young adults. The evaluation of the electromyographic data offers a suitable foundation to understand aging process. This supports that surface electromyography provide information about the aged shoulder muscles. Loss of functionality is suffered by a high percentage of older adults, which g...
Monitoring and optimizing tissue oxygenation (StO2) in high-risk surgery and/or high-risk surgical patients may decrease the risk of postoperative complications. Tissue hypoxia occurs frequently during high-risk surgery in high-risk patients. The investigators want to see if an algorithm aimed at optimizing intraoperative tissue oxygenation reduces perioperative complications as well as length of stay in the intensive care unit (ICU LOS), 28-day mortality, and the duration of ...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether a short psychological intervention aiming at optimizing expectations is able to foster positive emotions and whether an intervention inducing positive emotions is able improve participants' expectations. Furthermore, the investigators will examine whether both interventions are effective in buffering the stress response after an acute stressor in a healthy sample compared to a control condition.

Additionally, we will also examine the effect o...
Non specific chronic low back pain (LBP) is a debilitating disorder characterized by tremendous personal and socioeconomic impact, with long-term sick leave, low quality of life, and very high financial costs. Evidence suggests that patients with non specific LBP presented with altered muscle activity pattern when compare with healthy people. It has been reviewed that exercise therapy was effective for modulation of muscle dysfunction in chronic low back pain. However, there is...
