Dynamic posturography has become an important tool for understanding standing balance in clinical settings. A key test in the NeuroCom International (Clackamas, Oregon) dynamic posturography system, the Sensory Organization Test (SOT), provides information about the integration of multiple components of balance. The SOT test leads to an outcome measure(More)
Researchers, therapists, and physicians often use equilibrium score (ES) from the Sensory Organization Test, a key test in the NeuroCom EquiTest System (a dynamic posturography system) to assess stability. ES reflects the overall coordination of the visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular systems for maintaining standing posture. In our earlier article, we(More)
A mathematical model for computing stresses in sutured human skin wounds is presented. The model uses the incremental law of elasticity and elastic constants valid for in vivo orthotropic skin. The model is applied to compute the principal stress and displacements resulting from suturing small elliptical and circular wounds in a large at sheet of skin, in(More)
CONTEXT More research is needed to understand the flow characteristics of hyaluronic acid (HA) during motions used in osteopathic manipulative treatment and other manual therapies. OBJECTIVE To apply a 3-dimensional mathematical model to explore the relationship between the 3 manual therapy motions (constant sliding, perpendicular vibration, and(More)
We examined an existing method for evaluating postural sway based on force-plate technology. Through an improved mathematical model of postural dynamics, we propose a new method, which better evaluated postural sway and, in addition, computed ankle moment and ankle postural stiffness directly from the measured ground reaction forces. An example is detailed(More)
In this paper, stress and strain equations are developed for the left ventricle mainly to nd the innuence of the ventricle's shape on wall stresses. Here, the ventricle is assumed to be a thick-walled truncated conical shell and large elastic deformation theory is applied. Our model is compared to corresponding results approximating the left ventricle as a(More)
While scoring strategies and player performance in cricket have been studied, there has been little published work about the influence of batting order with respect to One-Day cricket. We apply a mathematical modelling approach to compute efficiently the expected performance (runs distribution) of a cricket batting order in an innings. Among other(More)
