A method is described which provides standardised reproducible radiographic images of the lower limb. Anteroposterior and lateral radiographs are digitised and processed by computer to provide graphic/numeric displays of angles and linear measurements, relating the centre points of the hip, knee, and ankle. Two cases illustrate how surgical planning is(More)
Quantitative changes in valgus/varus knee stability with different levels of muscular activity were determined for five subjects. A specially designed machine was used to measure resistance to angulation in the frontal plane. This device held the thigh stationary, the knee straight, an cycled the leg from side to side at a constant rate between present(More)
A method by which the location of vertebral bodies can be estimated from the external profile of the spine in the sagittal plane is described. The technique involves a normalization of the curve from T1 to L5 and approximation using a cubic spline. Mapping functions are developed that enable the transformation of a skin profile to a vertebral centroid(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop minimum physical fitness standards based on common task criteria for personnel younger than 35 years of age in the Canadian Armed Forces. A random sample of 66 men and 144 women performed the Exercise Prescription (EXPRES) test and five physically demanding tasks that simulated common military tasks. Common cutting(More)
The Defence Research and Development Canada--Toronto managed a collaborative team of designers, biomechanists, ergonomists and military stakeholders in the development of a new personal load carriage (LC) system for the Canadian Forces. Ergonomics design principles using objective measurement tools and user-centred feedback from soldiers were considered(More)
Seventeen female and 24 male subjects had varus and valgus and apparent rotations measured using a standardized mechanical testing device that cyclically applied a 20-Nm moment in each direction. Five parameters--apparent varus rotation, apparent valgus rotation, apparent overall rotation, varus stiffness, and valgus stiffness showed intersubject variations(More)
The objectives of the study were threefold: (1) to quantify dynamic measures (displacement, velocity, force/acceleration, and power) of a 1·83 m isoinertial lift on an incremental lifting machine (ILM); (2)to identify any gender differences in ILM lifting technique; and (3) to assess the implications of these data for the use of the ILM as a screening(More)
The objectives of the study were threefold: (1) to develop an empirical description of dynamic factors involved in a test of lifting performance on an Incremental Lifting Machine (TLM) through application of principal components analysis; (2) to conduct gender analyses of the factor structures; and (3) to determine the stability of the structures with(More)
The purpose of the study was twofold: (1) to examine any gender differences in the performance of a pre-employment selection test using the incremental lifting machine (ILM); and (2) to formulate recommendations regarding analyses of selection fairness in studies of pre-employment screening tests and devices. Data were collected in a series of studies(More)
