The recovery of lacerated skeletal muscles are said to be slow and incomplete. Often the intramuscular (IM-) nerve is concomitantly cut, but never repaired. We questioned whether the IM-nerve should also be reanastamosed before repairing the skeletal muscle. Before answering this, it was necessary to know if the cut IM nerve would have an effect on the(More)
The repair of lacerated muscle often results in suboptimal recovery. An important cause of poor outcome is denervation of the distal segment. The rabbit medial gastrocnemius muscle laceration model was used to assess whether intramuscular nerve repair resulted in better recovery. Lacerated rabbit muscles were divided into three groups: group A had no muscle(More)
Fluorescence and confocal laser scanning microscopy were explored to investigate the movement and localization of mineral oils in citrus. In a laboratory experiment, fluorescence microscopy observation indicated that when a 'narrow' distillation fraction of an nC23 horticultural mineral oil was applied to adaxial and opposing abaxial leaf surfaces of potted(More)
Lacerated skeletal muscles often do not recover full function after repair. Denervated muscles with altered myosin heavy chain isoform (MHC) profiles are known to result in functional impairment. We studied the functional recovery of lacerated muscles, assessing MHC profile changes in association to the involvement of the intramuscular nerve (IM). We tested(More)

Travel by bus with long hours will create discomfort feeling for bus passenger. Long hour travel will create physiological stress and psychological stress on bus passenger. It may due to vibration, noise, as well as seat comfort. Seat comfort is a subjective feeling of bus passenger. In this research, air cushion was used to replace the part of the seat(More)
Travel with long hours will create discomfort feeling for passenger especially express bus passenger. Long hour travel will create physiological stress on passenger. It may due to seat space limitation, noise, vibration, seat hardness as well as seat comfort. Seat comfort is a subjective feeling that related to psychological aspect of passenger. In this(More)
Bipennate muscles may be split along their distal aponeurosis, dividing each into two compartments. These sub-muscle units may be used in tendon transfers. This paper presents the contractile properties of the two sub-units of the flexor carpi ulnaris in a macaca fascicularis, after it was split by up to 80% of its length. The sub-muscle units were(More)
