The authors examined how individuals adapt their gait and regulate their body configuration before altering direction during walking. Eight young adults were asked to change direction during walking with different turning angles (0 degree, 45 degree, 90 degree), pivot foot (left, right), and walking speeds (normal and fast). The authors used video and force(More)
Six reverse-transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) primers designed against conserved regions of segment 6 (s6) gene were used for the detection of grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella reovirus (GCRV) HZ08 subtype. The entire amplification could be completed within 40 min at 62·3° C. The RT-LAMP showed higher sensitivity than(More)
This study examined lower extremity joint moments during walk and turn with different turn angles and pivot feet. Seven young adults (age 21+/-1.3 yrs) were asked to walk at a self-selected speed (1.35+/-0.15 m/s) and to turn to the right using right (spin turn) and left (step turn) pivot feet at turn angles of 0 degrees (walking straight), 45 degrees, and(More)
The purposes of this study were to examine the consistency of wheelchair athletes' upper-limb kinematics in consecutive propulsive cycles and to investigate the relationship between the maximum angular velocities of the upper arm and forearm and the consistency of the upper-limb kinematical pattern. Eleven elite international wheelchair racers propelled(More)
To study a simplified method for preparation of DOCA-Salt hypertension model in rat. 45 male SD rats (140 +/- 9 g) were used in this study. A silastic tube (length 25 mm; external diameter 4 mm; internal diameter 2.5 mm; 10-14 about 300 microns micropores on the wall) filled 100 mg DOCA in was implanted subcutaneously at the belly of the rat and followed by(More)
We discuss the hydrodynamics of a wave energy converter consisting of two vertically floating, coaxial cylinders connected by dampers and allowed to heave, sway and roll. This design, viable in deep water and able to extract energy independent of the incident wave direction, is examined for monochromatic waves as well as broad-banded seas described by a(More)
