The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of soccer training on strength and power of leg extensor muscles in preadolescent boys and their possible influence in developing a muscular lateral dominance. Twenty male children (mean age 9.6 yr), ten soccer players and ten untrained subjects, participated in this study. Force and power were measured at(More)
The ability in maintaining body balance of 6-, 8-, and 10-year-old children performing three balance tests on a force platform was studied. Thirty adult subjects served as a reference group. The mean radius (MR) of the posturogram and the mean speed (MS) of the center of foot pressure (COP) were used as the measuring parameters. Data were analyzed using(More)
Tissue engineering-based bone grafts are emerging as a viable alternative treatment modality to repair and regenerate tissues damaged as a result of disease or injury. The choice of the biomaterial component is a critical determinant of the success of the graft or scaffold; essentially, it must induce and allow native tissue integration, and most(More)
Control over the size and morphology of polymeric carriers for drug delivery systems is essential to optimize their functionality. In the current study, we demonstrate the feasibility of using an electrohydrodynamic process with a triple-needle device to prepare nearly mono-dispersed, spherical, tri-layered sub-micron particles. Three biocompatible polymer(More)
