Sixty runners belonging to two clubs were followed for 1 year with regard to training and injury. There were 55 injuries in 39 athletes. The injury rate per 1,000 hours of training was 2.5 in long-distance/marathon runners and 5.6 to 5.8 in sprinters and middle-distance runners. There were significant differences in the injury rate in different periods of(More)
About one third of home-dwelling people over 65 years of age fall each year. Falling, and the fear of falling, is one of the major health risks that affects the quality of life among older people, threatening their independent living. In our pilot study, we found that fall detection with a waist-worn triaxial accelerometer is reliable with quite simple(More)
Thirty-nine elite runners were examined by Cybex II for thigh muscle strength. In addition, the maximal abduction, flexion and extension in the hip, dorsal flexion in the ankle, standing five steps, long and vertical jump, and side and front split were measured. For the latter five tests, an ordinary measuring tape was used. To establish reference values,(More)
— The increasing complexity of embedded software calls for a new, more efficient design approach. A natural choice is to use well-established component-based design; however, its adoption to design of embedded software has been slow and riddled with difficulties. It can be argued that these problems are due to the following peculiarities of embedded(More)
This paper describes work in progress on a tool for component-based design of embedded real-time software. The tool supports graphical modeling of software systems using concurrent reactive objects and components, as well as generation of C code from the model. The resulting application code can then be combined with a lightweight kernel for execution on(More)
