INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of self-selected versus standardized running speeds on within-day and between-day repeatability of lower extremity kinematics and kinetics for running gait. METHODS Subjects (six female, six male, age 18-35) were recreational athletes with no lower extremity injuries. The following study(More)
Plant-based expression systems have emerged as a competitive platform in the large-scale production of recombinant proteins. By adding a signal peptide, αAmy3sp, the desired recombinant proteins can be secreted outside transgenic rice cells, making them easy to harvest. In this work, to improve the secretion efficiency of recombinant proteins in rice(More)
Previous studies found that select titanium ultralight rigid wheelchairs (TURWs) had fewer equivalent cycles and less value than select aluminum ultralight folding wheelchairs (AUFWs). The causes of premature failure of TURWs were not clear because the TURWs had different frame material and design than the AUFWs. We tested 12 aluminum ultralight rigid(More)
Comfortable propulsion and support, light weight, and small dimensions are important features that help preserve upper-limb integrity of manual wheelchair users and improve accessibility. The titanium wheelchair is a product developed in response to these goals, but none of the test results of titanium wheelchairs had been disclosed before this study was(More)
Pressure ulcers are a common and devastating condition faced by users of power wheelchairs. However, proper use of power wheelchair tilt and recline functions can alleviate pressure and reduce the risk of ulcer occurrence. In this work, we show that when using data from a sensor instrumented power wheelchair, we are able to predict with an average accuracy(More)
BACKGROUND Presently, the angular movements of the three thumb joints during activities of daily living are limited as a result of their static position and lack of the required thumb range of motion information during motion. The purpose of this study was to investigate the three thumb joints' motion required in activities of daily living. METHODS(More)
