This paper explicates the metaphors used to conceive of asynchronous text-based communication (ATBC) software, such as email and newsgroups. Design of such software has been guided by an understanding of ATBC as essentially a text communication (textual metaphor). However, this mode of discourse has many similarities with oral communication as well. The(More)
This study examined the effect of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) coupled with an internal mental imagery technique (PNFI) on both the attainment and retention of increased range-of-movement (ROM) at the hip joint. Twenty-four young adult subjects were randomly allocated to PNF, PNFI, and control treatments administered in fifteen sessions(More)
This study aimed to examine within-day and between-days intratester reliability of mechanomyography (MMG) in assessing muscle fatigue. An accelerometer was used to detect the MMG signal from rectus femoris. Thirty one healthy subjects (15 males) with no prior knee problems initially performed three maximum voluntary contractions (MVCs) using an ISOCOM(More)
Object technology is the dominant software engineering paradigm in most undergraduate computer science courses. Two important topics in this area are design patterns and Java programming, and indeed these are increasingly taught side by side. This paper describes a novel form of visualisation that makes use of a combination of virtual reality and hypertext(More)
INTRODUCTION Patellofemoral pain (PFP) can cause significant pain leading to limitations in societal participation and physical activity. An international expert group has highlighted the need for a classification system to allow targeted intervention for patients with PFP; we have developed a work programme systematically investigating this. We have(More)
Some familial platelet disorders are associated with predisposition to leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or dyserythropoietic anemia. We identified a family with autosomal dominant thrombocytopenia, high erythrocyte mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and two occurrences of B cell-precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Whole-exome sequencing(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of increasing the number of test trials in the assessment of knee joint position sense, in a group of patellofemoral patients, and second, to investigate the effects of joint angle and type of test. Thirty-two patients with a diagnosis of patellofemoral pain syndrome were admitted to this study. Knee(More)
BACKGROUND Current multimodal approaches for the management of non-specific patellofemoral pain are not optimal, however, targeted intervention for subgroups could improve patient outcomes. This study explores whether subgrouping of non-specific patellofemoral pain patients, using a series of low cost simple clinical tests, is possible. METHOD The(More)
BACKGROUND Community-based studies of patellofemoral pain (PFP) need a questionnaire tool that discriminates between those with and those without the condition. To overcome these issues, we have designed a self-report questionnaire which aims to identify people with PFP in the community. METHODS STUDY DESIGNS comparative study and cross-sectional(More)
