Proprioceptive deficits occur with knee osteoarthritis (OA) and improving proprioception may slow joint degeneration by allowing more appropriate joint loading. Stochastic resonance (SR) stimulation improves balance and the sensitivity of specific mechanoreceptors. Our purpose was to evaluate the effects of SR electrical stimulation combined with a knee(More)
BACKGROUND A variety of knee injuries and pathologies may cause a deficit in knee proprioception which may increase the risk of reinjury or the progression of disease. Stochastic resonance stimulation is a new therapy which has potential benefits for improving proprioceptive function. The objective of this study was to determine if stochastic resonance (SR)(More)
Twenty-three cadaver forearm specimens were mounted on a Plexiglas acrylic plastic base for study of the trapeziometacarpal joint. Extrinsic and intrinsic motors were loaded to simulate lateral pinch, and pressure-sensitive film was used to record joint contact patterns in various functional positions. The palmar compartment of the trapeziometacarpal joint(More)
