SETTING University medical center research laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Seven chronic stroke subjects (age, 63.14+/-7.01y). INTERVENTION Participants received two 6-week(More)
STUDY DESIGN A computerized technique, employing a motion analysis system and a force platform, was developed to analyze lateral bending behavior of subjects with normal and painful spines. METHODS Lateral bending was quantified using motion (angle and speed of rotation), force (ground reaction kinetics), and biomechanical behavior ("compliance" and(More)
This study of the effects of transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TNS) on 20 wrists of 11 men with rheumatoid arthritis was designd to make an objective assessment of pain and also to evaluate placebo effects. Following determinations of the length of time each wrist could support a small weight before pain began or increased (loading time), a 3-part test was(More)
Balance in double stance was measured on a force platform with an X-Y Plotter (stabilograph) in 57 healthy boys aged 5 to 10 years and in 13 children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), aged 6 to 15 years. Horizontal excursions of the center of gravity were measured in the anteroposterior (AP) and right-left (RL) planes. Measurements superimposed upon(More)
