PURPOSE Pivoting neuromuscular control and proprioceptive acuity may play an important role in anterior cruciate ligament injuries. The goal of this study was to investigate whether pivoting off-axis intensity adjustable neuromuscular control training (POINT) could improve pivoting neuromuscular control, proprioceptive acuity, and functional performance.

The goal of this study was to use an offaxis robotic elliptical trainer to improve off-axis neuromuscular control in people with knee injuries. Thirteen individuals with knee injuries participated in the study. Among them, 8 individuals participated in 18 sessions of pivoting offaxis intensity-adjustable neuromuscular control training (POINT) (3(More)
Females are at greater risks of musculoskeletal injuries than are males, which may be related to decreased neuromuscular control in axial and/or frontal planes, offaxis neuromuscular control. The objective of this study was to investigate gender differences in offaxis neuromuscular control during stepping under a slippery condition. Forty-three healthy(More)
The goal of this study was to investigate the efficacy of off-axis neuromuscular control training using a pivoting elliptical machine. Although knee motion is mainly in flexion/extension, injuries to the knee are usually associated with excessive off-axis movement (tibial axial rotation and valgus/varus). A pivoting elliptical training system was developed(More)
Noncontact ACL injuries occur most commonly in pivoting sports and are much more frequent in females than in males. However, information on sex differences in proprioceptive acuity under weight-bearing and leg neuromuscular control in pivoting is scarce. The objective of this study was to investigate sex differences in pivoting neuromuscular control during(More)
The effects of deteriorated bone density become particularly apparent in cases where spinal instrumentation is needed. Cement augmentation of pedicle screws for better bone purchase became the subject of many studies, which proved the biomechanical superiority and the increased pullout strength of cement augmented screws. Inadequate, and sometimes(More)
External fixation is a proved method for high tibial osteotomies. It is easy to access, allows postoperative corrections of the alignment, and can be removed without additional narcosis. Disadvantages are the frequent infection of the pin tracks and discomfort in bearing compared to internal fixation. In our own study no difference between unilateral and(More)
