We quantified the lower extremity dynamics developed during the volleyball spike and block jumps to find out if predictive relations exist between jump dynamics and patellar tendinitis. Lower extremity movement biomechanics were analyzed for 10 members of the 1994 Canadian Men's National Volleyball Team (all right-handed hitters). Based on physical(More)
The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA) monitor and control real-time systems. SCADA systems are the backbone of the critical infrastructure, and any compromise in their security can have grave consequences. Therefore, there is a need to have a SCADA testbed for checking vulnerabilities and validating security solutions. In this paper we(More)
The purpose of the present study was to derive a regression equation relating variables obtained from a series of noninvasive functional tests in a normal subject population to the fiber type distribution of vastus lateralis muscle (VL) determined using muscle biopsy. All functional tests were designed to distinguish between basic properties of Type II(More)
Selected temporal events and associated kinematic parameters were studied about the knee and ankle during running using the C.A.R.S. -U.B.C. Triplanar Electrogoniometer, with and without corrective running orthotic devices (CRODs), in ten male runners who displayed compensatory overpronation. Extension and flexion, internal and external rotation plus varus(More)
It has been reported that there is a relationship between power output and fibre type distribution in mixed muscle. The strength of this relationship is greater in the range of 3-8 rad.s-1 during knee extension compared to slower or faster angular knee extensor speeds. A mathematical model of the force: velocity properties of muscle with various(More)
A significant number of patients with patellofemoral osteoarthritis (PFOA) have described a history of patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). This leads to speculation that the underpinning mechanical causes of PFPS and PFOA may be similar. Although alterations in gait biomechanics and hip strength have been reported in PFPS, this relationship has not yet(More)
BACKGROUND Knee osteoarthritis (OA) progression has been linked to increased peak external knee adduction moments (KAMs). Although some trials have attempted to reduce pain and improve function in OA by reducing KAMs with a wedged footwear insole intervention, KAM reduction has not been specifically controlled for in trial designs, potentially explaining(More)
OBJECTIVE Determine if a change in internal knee abduction angular impulse (KAAI) is related to pain reduction for runners with patellofemoral pain (PFP) by comparing lateral and medial wedge insole interventions, and increased KAAI and decreased KAAI groups. DESIGN Randomized controlled clinical trial (ClinicalTrials.gov ID# NCT01332110). SETTING(More)
BACKGROUND Patients presenting to the healthcare system with rotator cuff pathology do not always receive high quality care. High quality care occurs when a patient receives care that is accessible, appropriate, acceptable, effective, efficient, and safe. The aim of this study was twofold: 1) to develop a clinical pathway algorithm that sets forth a(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical effectiveness of lateral wedges for knee osteoarthritis is inconsistent across studies. One explanation is that knee loading is not fully described by the peak frontal-plane knee moment. The purpose of this study was to propose a 3D resultant approach to describing moments at the knee and evaluate how this moment changes in response to(More)
