OBJECTIVES Footwear-generated biomechanical manipulations (e.g., wedge insoles) have been shown to reduce the magnitude of adduction moment about the knee. The theory behind wedged insoles is that a more laterally shifted location of the center of pressure reduces the distance between the ground reaction force and the center of the knee joint, thereby(More)
The knee adduction moment (KAM) provides a major contribution to the elevated load in the medial compartment of the knee. An abnormally high KAM has been linked with the progression of knee osteoarthritis (OA). Footwear-generated biomechanical manipulations reduce the magnitude of this moment by conveying a more laterally shifted trajectory of the foot's(More)
Footwear-generated biomechanical manipulation of lower-limb joints has been shown to influence lower-limb biomechanics. Numerous studies report the influence of such interventions on the knee, however little is known about the influence of these interventions on the hip. The present study analyzed kinetic and kinematic changes about the hip of 12 healthy(More)
Loading/excessive loading of the hip joint has been linked to onset and progression of hip osteoarthritis. Footwear-generated biomechanical manipulation in the frontal plane has been previously shown in a cohort of healthy subjects to cause a specific gait adaption when the foot center of pressure trajectory was shifted medially, which thereby significantly(More)
Age-associated muscle wasting (sarcopenia of old age) is a major problem in elderly people, however, the mechanisms of muscle proteolysis in aging remain obscure and enigmatic. Possible reasons for loss of skeletal muscle mass with aging may be attributed to multiple and complex proteolytic systems. The purpose of the present study was to explore the(More)
OBJECTIVES Kinetic patterns of the lower extremity joints have been shown to be influenced by modification of the location of the center of pressure (CoP) of the foot. The accepted theory is that a shifted location of the CoP alters the distance between the ground reaction force and the center of the joint, thereby modifying torques during gait. Various(More)
Interdiction operations involving search, identification, and interception of suspected objects are of great interest and high operational importance to military and naval forces as well as nation's coast guards and border patrols. The interdiction scenario discussed in this paper includes an area of interest with multiple neutral and hostile objects moving(More)
BACKGROUND Unstable sole designs have been used as functional or therapeutic tools for improving body stability during locomotion. It has been suggested that the narrow base of support under the feet generate perturbations that challenge the instability of different joints during motion, thereby forcing the body to modify its movement in order to maintain a(More)
Knee frontal (adduction/abduction) and sagittal (flexion/extension) moments have been implicated in the pathomechanics of knee osteoarthritis (OA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the change in the knee sagittal moment in a cohort of patients with knee OA undergoing a biomechanical training program. Twenty-five female patients with symptomatic medial(More)
OBJECTIVES Injectable Bromelain Solution (IBS) is a modified investigational derivate of the medical grade bromelain-debriding pharmaceutical agent (NexoBrid) studied and approved for a rapid (four-hour single application), eschar-specific, deep burn debridement. We conducted an ex vivo study to determine the ability of IBS to dissolve-disrupt (enzymatic(More)
