OBJECTIVE To investigate the possibility of using functional electrical stimulation (FES) to control orthostatic hypotension in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) and to clarify the mechanism of the response. DESIGN Subjects were tilted by 10 degree increments with varying intensities of lower-extremity FES. Stimulation over muscles was compared to(More)
STUDY DESIGN A single case study. OBJECTIVES To compare proximal tibia trabecular bone mineral density (BMD) of a participant with complete spinal cord injury (SCI), long-termed functional electrical stimulation-rowing (FES-R) trained, with previously reported SCI and non-SCI group norms. To estimate lower limb joint contact forces (JCFs) in the FES-R(More)
STUDY DESIGN A training intervention study using functional electrical stimulation-rowing (FES-R) in a group of eight individuals with tetraplegia. OBJECTIVES To assess the feasibility of a structured progressive FES-R training programme in people with tetraplegia, and to explore the number and type of FES-training sessions required to enable continuous(More)
STUDY DESIGN Two studies were conducted: Study-1 was cross-sectional; and Study-2 a longitudinal repeated measures design. OBJECTIVES To examine the influence of functional electrical stimulation (FES) rowing training on cardiac structure and function in people with spinal cord injury (SCI). SETTING A university sports science department and home-based(More)
It is well known that adenine triphosphate (ATP) binds with proteins to play important roles in metabolism, cell signaling, and as cofactor. Therefore it is crucial to identify ATP-binding sites on proteins to understand these mechanisms. In this paper, we present a computational method that can accurately predict ATP-binding sites on proteins using(More)
