We used self-reported direct finger measurements from 255,116 participants in a BBC Internet survey to investigate the measurement of 2D:4D ratios and their association with sex, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. We found significant sex differences such that males had lower 2D:4D than females and the effect size of the sex differences was greatest for(More)
This paper describes the development of and reports on the accuracy of the Rivermead video-based clinical gait analysis method (RIVCAM), a simple and comparatively inexpensive movement recording system, which operates at 50 Hz. The system comprises five basic steps; firstly subjects are recorded using a PAL video camera with white markers affixed to the(More)
Following F. Zaal and R. J. Bootsma (1995), the authors studied whether the decelerative phase of a reaching movement could be modeled as a constant tau-dot strategy resulting in a soft collision with the object. Specifically, they investigated whether that strategy is sustained over different viewing conditions. Participants (N = 11) were required to reach(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relative effects of footwear and an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) on hemiplegic gait. DESIGN A case series with three contrasting conditions: walking without footwear, with footwear alone, and with footwear and an AFO. Spatio-temporal parameters reflecting walking performance were analysed using an analysis of variance (ANOVA). (More)
BACKGROUND Freezing of gait (FOG) remains one of the most common debilitating aspects of Parkinson's disease and has been linked to injuries, falls and reduced quality of life. Although commercially available portable cueing devices exist claiming to assist with overcoming freezing; their immediate effectiveness in overcoming gait initiation failure is(More)
