BACKGROUND Spinal immobilisation during extrication of patients in road traffic collisions is routinely used despite the lack of evidence for this practice. In a previous proof of concept study (n=1), we recorded up to four times more cervical spine movement during extrication using conventional techniques than self-controlled extrication. OBJECTIVE The(More)
In order for the Biodex isokinetic dynamometer to be used in clinical research, it must be documented to be a reliable measurement tool. The purpose of this study was to determine eccentric peak torque test-retest reliability for glenohumeral medial and lateral rotator muscles using the Biodex isokinetic dynamometer. Eighteen healthy men and women(More)
BACKGROUND In most countries, road traffic collisions (RTCs) are the main cause of cervical spine injuries. There are several techniques in use for spinal immobilisation during prehospital extrication; however, the evidence for these is currently poor. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to establish which technique provides the minimal deviation of(More)
