This paper discusses the potential of DEA (data envelopment analysis) for performance evaluation on energy consumption. The purpose is to develop evaluation methodology for finding features of energy provision and consumption from observed data. While there are four evaluation measures (economy, environment, comfort, and risk) in general, this paper focuses(More)
Prevalence of median to ulnar anastomosis in the forearm(Martin-Gruber anastomosis; MGA) to the first dorsal interosseous(FDI), abductor digiti quinti (ADQ) and adductor pollicis(AP) was investigated. Subjects contained 106 patients with normal nerve conduction or patients with various neuropathies. Recording electrodes were placed on the motor point of(More)
We investigated characteristics of segmental motor conduction in the median and the ulnar nerves. Subjects were 55 individuals with normal conduction of the upper extremity and 71 patients with diabetes mellitus. Mean polyneuropathy index (PNI), which was determined as a mean percentage of the normal for 6 indices concerning to the conduction velocity in(More)
In order to clarify the suitability of sensory nerve action potential(SNAP) in the evaluation of diabetic polyneuropathy, we studied measurements of SNAPs in the median, ulnar and sural nerves. Subjects were 253 patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus; 167 men and 86 women, aged 58.2 +/- 12.8(mean +/- SD) years old. Their diabetic history was(More)
Ulnar nerve can be stretched with the elbow flexed position. To avoid elbow flexed position in patients with ulnar neuropathy at the elbow we used an athletic elbow supporter. We herein demonstrate a 31-year-old man with right ulnar neuropathy at the elbow whose neuropathy was resolved by using this supporter only at night. He had complained of weakness and(More)
A total of 122 patients were performed motor and sensory nerve conduction studies of the upper limb by two examiners (1. doctor, 2. medical technician) to know the inter-examiner reliability of nerve conduction measurements. Subjects contained normal individuals and various types of neuropathy patients. Motor nerve conduction studies were carried out in the(More)
