[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on heart rate variability (HRV). [Subjects and Methods] Ten healthy subjects participated in the study. All subjects received NMES with a pulse duration of 300 us and frequency of 30 Hz at the vastus lateralis and vastus medialis for 15 minutes. The(More)
We demonstrate that etched microgrooves, with truncated V-shape in cross-section and subsequent acid etching, on titanium substrata alter the expression of various genes and proteins in human primary cells. Etched microgrooves with 30 or 60 μm width and 10 μm depth promoted human gingival fibroblast proliferation and significantly enhanced the osteoblast(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to identify the optimal micro- and submicroscale topographies of titanium (Ti) substrata that would most significantly influence adhesion, proliferation, and other activities of these cells. DESIGN Truncated V-shaped microgrooves in 60 μm-wide and 10 μm-deep cross-sections with 0°, 30°, 60°, or 90° angles between the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of titanium (Ti) surface microgrooves and anodic oxidation on the surface characteristics of titanium and the osteogenic activity of human periodontal ligament cells (PLCs) cultured on theses surfaces. DESIGN Mechanically ground Ti was used as the control substratum (NE0). Truncated(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of squat exercises performed on different surfaces on the activity of the quadriceps femoris muscle in order to provide information on support surfaces for effective squat exercises. [Subjects and Method] Fourteen healthy subjects performed squat exercises for five seconds each on three(More)
[Purpose] The objective of this study was to propose a work environment that could reduce musculoskeletal workload. Accordingly, spinal muscle fatigue caused by ultrasound therapy at various treatment table heights was examined and compared. [Subjects and Methods] Twenty-five healthy subjects participated in this experiment. The table height was set to(More)
[Purpose] This study aimed to compare dynamic balance ability according to foot shape, defined as normal, pronated, or supinated on the basis of the height of the medial arch. [Subjects] In this study, 14 subjects for the pronated foot group, 14 for the supinated foot group, and 14 for the normal foot group were selected from among 162 healthy university(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of the present study was to compare the sensory thresholds of healthy subjects using pre-programmed or single-frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. [Subjects] Ninety healthy adult subjects were randomly assigned to pre-programmed or single-frequency stimulation groups, each consisting of 45 participants. [Methods](More)
[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to analyze cervical muscle activity at different traction forces of an air-inflatable neck traction device. [Subjects] Eighteen males participated in this study. [Methods] The subjects put on an air-inflatable neck traction device and the traction forces administered were 40, 80, and 120 mmHg. The electromyography(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to analyze shoulder stabilization using resistant vibration stimulus during bodyblade exercise followed by forward head posture improvement. [Subjects and Methods] Craniovertebral angle and cranial rotation angle were measured with 24 patients who were diagnosed with forward head posture. The experimental group(More)
