Muscle activity and coordination in ten shoulders were studied in five healthy subjects using electromyography (EMG) recorded during standardized loaded movements, i.e., flexion, extension, abduction, external rotation, and internal rotation at 0 degrees, 45 degrees, and 90 degrees of abduction. Bipolar surface and intramuscular fine-wire electrodes were(More)
Retroversion of the humeral head and the range of motion of the shoulder joint in both the frontal and the scapular plane have been studied in 100 shoulder joints in 50 healthy subjects, 25 men and 25 women. The average angle for humeral head retroversion was 33 degrees on the dominant side and 29 degrees for the nondominant side. There was no difference(More)
Operative treatments for recurrent dislocation of the shoulder usually focus on the subscapularis muscle because it is supposed to contribute to the joint stability. It is of clinical interest to record the EMG from the subscapularis muscle in order to interpret its function. The purpose of the present study was to describe a safe and reliable route to(More)
The aim of the present study was to analyze shoulder muscle activity in patients with generalized joint laxity and shoulder instability and to compare it with muscle activity recorded in healthy subjects from an earlier study. Electromyographic (EMG) activity was recorded from eight shoulder muscles in six patients using surface and intramuscular fine-wire(More)
This paper presents a conceptual framework for testing the implementation of biometric algorithms within Unix and Windows NT/2000 operating systems' login authentication. To support the analysis and evaluation of biometric algorithms, a data logging module will be used, enabling the collection of quantitative data, e.g. timestamps, biometric raw data,(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate shoulder muscle activity during eccentric muscle movements, and to determine whether electromyograms in patients with joint laxity differed from those in normal subjects. Five normal subjects and 6 patients with generalized joint laxity and shoulder instability were studied. Both shoulders were(More)
BACKGROUND Assisted living (AL) is the fastest growing segment of residential long-term care in the US. At least half of the estimated 1 million AL residents have dementia or cognitive impairment, with many AL facilities offering specialized dementia services. Little research has been done on the demographics, outcomes, or clinical variables of this(More)
EMG activity from eight shoulder muscles in parallel was recorded from 4 patients with generalized joint laxity. During external rotation of the humerus in 45 degrees abduction, humeroscapular dislocation occurred in 2 patients and subluxation in the 2 others. The activity level in the subscapularis was low, and the activation speed was slow. The low muscle(More)
