The development of microsatellite loci has become more efficient using next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches, and many studies imply that the amount of applicable loci is large. However, few studies have sought to quantify the number of loci that are retained for use out of the thousands of sequence reads initially obtained. We analyzed the success(More)
Three experiments were conducted to explore the utility of magnitude estimation of loudness for hearing aid selection. In Experiment 1 the loudness discomfort level (LDL), most comfortable loudness (MCL), and magnitude estimations (MEs) of loudness were obtained from normal-hearing subjects. MCLs fell within a range of loudness that was relatively low on(More)
A form of cathodic protection has been developed for controlling the corrosion of stainless steel electrodes during electrical stimulation. The protection is achieved by using biphasic stimulation pulses with a slight (<-1%) charge imbalance in favor of the cathodic phase. Testsin vitro indicate that the “safe” charge limit (the charge density per phase at(More)
Stroke is a leading cause of disability worldwide. It leads to a sudden and overwhelming disruption in one's physical body, and alters the stroke survivors' sense of self. Long-term recovery requires that bodily perception, social participation and sense of self are restored; this is challenging to achieve, particularly with a single intervention. However,(More)
We conducted a review to determine the effectiveness of interventions to improve occupational performance in people with motor impairments after stroke as part of the American Occupational Therapy Association's Evidence-Based Practice Project. One hundred forty-nine studies met inclusion criteria. Findings related to key outcomes from select interventions(More)
BACKGROUND Few options exist for training arm movements in participants with severe post-stroke hemiparesis who have little active range of motion. The purpose of this study was to test the safety and feasibility of training with a non-powered device, the Bimanual Arm Trainer (BAT), to facilitate motor recovery in individuals with severe hemiparesis. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The Functional Upper Extremity Levels (FUEL) is a new classification tool to assess a person's upper-extremity functional and physical performance after sustaining a stroke. The aim of this preliminary study was to develop the tool and determine its content validity and interrater reliability. METHOD Forty-four licensed occupational therapists(More)
