Within the structure of the skeletal muscle, there are fascicles of muscular fibers that are made up of serially distributed contractile elements. These elements are controlled by the nervous system, control which results in obtaining the muscular strength required for movement and its control. This study presents the neuromuscular assessment using(More)
The aim of this paper is to present to new method for assessment diabetic polyneuropathy, before the moment of first clinical sign. Our working presents the method of tensiomyography (TMG) for assess the muscle composition rapports with muscle fibers types I and II. This composition can help to have an image regards the neuromuscular potential of muscle(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this research is to present the results of neuromuscular assessment using tensiomyography (TMG) in multiple sclerosis for prediction the muscle changes. This study consists of 20 patients, selected conform to certain criteria. Thus, according to diagnosis and MS level, the studied group was divided into two subgroups: subgroup A,(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) has a multifactorial etiology located at the interaction point of environmental factors--nutritional, geographic, infectious, etc.--with genetic factors, which confers susceptibility to disease or alters its development. This research presents a case study focused on complex assessment of a patient using clinical and functional(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system probably based on the autoimmune mechanism against myelin and the action of lymphocyte T. In the last 50 years, more than 150 descriptive studies regarding MS have focused on the etiopathogeny, treatment, diagnosis and prevention of the progressive evolution of MS. Most recently,(More)
Gait, as an expression of the locomotive system, needs a complex biomechanical analysis, which allows the description of multiple sclerosis (MS) specific patterns, MS patients having a polymorphism of motion patterns. The studied group consisted of 13 MS patients with gait disorders, average age of the group was of 36 years. The evaluation of the subjects(More)
The paper presents the algorithm to obtain a 3D virtual human elbow joint using CT images. For that purpose, we used CAD parametric software, which allows defining models with a high level of difficulty including complex 3D shapes. The virtual biomechanical system of the human elbow containing bones, ligaments and muscles is studied using the finite(More)
In this paper we follow to elaborate a new prosthetic mechanical system which will substitute the human ankle joint. The new prosthetic mechanical system design, will be accomplished by performing a kinematic analysis on analytical way. The designed prosthetic mechanical system will be experimentally tested on a human subject with locomotion disabilities.
Background. In the literature, the descriptions of the somatosensory system’s physiological characteristics in athletes, using somatosensory evoked potentials, are very few. Aims. The aim of our study was to discover possible characteristics of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) in athletes, appertaining to different sport categories: fencing,(More)
In this paper we want to establish the angular amplitudes developed at the human upper limb wrist joint level. For this, two human subjects will be proposed for the experimental tests. One human subject has a healthy forearm and the other has some trauma at the wrist joint level. The experimental tests will be performed by using special equipment called(More)
