Autonomic function was studied by the use of spectral analysis of heart-rate variability in patients with epilepsy in relation to type of epilepsy and anti-epileptic drug therapy. A total of 21 patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) and 21 with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) were included; 18 patients were treated with carbamazepine (CBZ), 16 with(More)

The aim of the study was to calculate the magnitude of the instantaneous muscular power output at the hip, knee and ankle joints during ergometer cycling at different work loads and speeds. Six healthy subjects pedalled a weight-braked cycle ergometer at 0, 120 and 240 W at a constant speed of 60 rpm. The subjects also pedalled at 40, 60, 80 and 100 rpm(More)
This study investigated how ergonomic design influences neck-and-shoulder muscle strain, through keyboard assessment. Muscular activity was measured electromyographically (EMG) from six muscles in the forearm and shoulders of eight experienced typists using each of five different types of keyboard: one mechanical, one electromechanical, and one electronic(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have reported reduced heart rate variability (HRV) in patients with chronic epilepsy under treatment with antiepileptic drugs. This impairment in cardiac autonomic control might be of relevance in relation to the risk of sudden unexpected death in patients with chronic refractory epilepsy. Little information is, however, available(More)
The aim of this study was to make descriptive analyses of the muscle activities in the lower extremity during maximal sprinting. Nine healthy sprinters were examined during maximal sprinting using telemetric electromyography (EMG). Seven muscles of the lower extremities were investigated: biceps femoris, medial hamstrings (semimembranosus and(More)
The aim of the study was to quantify the activity as recorded by electromyography during ergometer cycling in eleven different muscles of the lower extremity. Eleven healthy subjects rode in twelve different ways at different work-load, pedalling rate, saddle height and pedal foot position. Vastus medialis and lateralis, gastrocnemius medialis and lateralis(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the relationship between blood pressure levels and cardiovascular autonomic function in adolescents and preadolescents. STUDY DESIGN We measured variability of beat-to-beat arterial pressure and R-R intervals using power spectral analysis in 56 adolescents (aged 13-16 years; mean age, 9.0 +/- 1.4 years) and 71 preadolescents(More)
The aim of this study was to record the forces applied to the pedal during ergometer cycling and to calculate the effectiveness of these force vectors. Six healthy subjects rode a weight-braked bicycle ergometer at different work loads, pedaling rates, saddle heights, and pedal foot positions. The left lower limb and crank motions were recorded by a(More)
We investigated autonomic function in 58 children and young adults with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (aged 7-22 years, duration from 3 to 18, 8.6 +/- 3.4 years) and in 74 healthy controls (6-21 years) using power spectral analysis of blood pressure and heart rate in addition to conventional standard autonomic function tests: deep breathing, the Valsalva(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate four different modes of human-computer interaction. The modes were: use of the keyboard alone as input device, use of keyboard and mouse, use of keyboard and mouse with a three-dimensional arm support, and use of a keyboard with a Trackpoint device in its centre. Ten women and 10 men volunteered to participate. Questions(More)
