This study quantified the effects of an aquatic exercise program on muscular strength, endurance, work, and power of patients with multiple sclerosis. Ten individuals with a mean age of 40 years participated in a 10-week aquatic exercise program. Two types of isokinetic dynamometers were used to assess the muscular variables studied. A Cybex II dynamometer(More)
This study determines the characteristics of the multiple sclerosis gait, identifies the progressive gait changes associated with this degenerative disease, and determines the effects of an aquatic exercise program on gait parameters. Eleven patients with multiple sclerosis volunteered to participate and were filmed three times during a 10 week period with(More)
This study was designed to 1) determine whether isokinetic dynamometry is appropriate and safe for ambulatory patients with multiple sclerosis and 2) describe the idiosyncrasies the patients with multiple sclerosis exhibited during testing. Ten patients with multiple sclerosis and 20 healthy subjects were matched for age, sex, and weight. The isokinetic(More)
Our user-friendly foot skin and toenail grading system is simple to understand for both patients and physicians. Current medical practice dictates that primary care physicians deliver the most comprehensive care possible for their patients. This includes preventive care and documentation of outcomes. Our approach simplifies evaluation and management of the(More)
In the present work, the sublimation of crystalline solid 2-(2-nitrovinyl) furan (G-0) in the temperature range of 35 to 60 °C (below the melting point of the drug) was studied using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The sublimated product was characterized using Fourier-transformed-infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and thin layer chromatography (TLC). The(More)
We report the effects of acute smoking cessation on transcutaneous oxygen (PtcO2) measurements in room air and with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) of an extremity at risk for amputation. The reports on cigarette smoking and PtcO2 do not discuss acute smoking cessation. PtcO2 measured 46 h after smoking cessation increased 10% while breathing room air and 34% with(More)
