The purpose of this study was to investigate the reliability of manual dynamometry. Three testers participated and performed the doctor- and patient-initiated testing methods as described in the applied kinesiology literature. Three muscles from each subject were tested. Fifteen normal volunteer adults had their muscles tested by the doctor-initiated method(More)
The purposes of this study were to determine if the tape measuring method is a reliable method of measuring six active neck motions, to estimate measurement errors, and to compare the intratester reliability between an experienced tester and an inexperienced tester by using this method. Each tester measured 17 different normal subjects. Each active neck(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare three instruments in the assessment of the passive straight-leg-raising test: a standard plastic goniometer, a flexometer, and a tape measure. Hip flexion angles at the initial point of pelvic tilt were measured in 10 healthy subjects. All three methods showed excellent intrasession reliability with alpha(More)
In this research, the newly developed Hilbert Huang Transformation method is applied to decompose the time-shifted post-fit GPS phase signal residuals into a range of fluctuating components from high-to low-frequencies. Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite constellation returns to the same configuration in a sidereal day (23 h 56 m 4 s); however, daily(More)
