Factors associated with lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration in the elderly.
TLDR
The results of this study raise the index of suspicion that cardiovascular risk factors and particular physical loading may contribute to DD; however additional studies are required to further investigate associations between DD and these factors. Expand
Feasibility of rehabilitation training with a newly developed wearable robot for patients with limited mobility.
TLDR
Eight weeks of rehabilitative training with the wearable robot could be performed safely and effectively, even many years after the subjects received their diagnosis, as demonstrated in patients with limited mobility. Expand
Pilot study of locomotion improvement using hybrid assistive limb in chronic stroke patients
TLDR
This pilot study showed that locomotor training using the HAL is feasible for chronic stroke patients and Randomized controlled trials are now required to demonstrate the effectiveness of HAL-based rehabilitation over conventional therapies. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging of Osgood-Schlatter disease: the course of the disease
TLDR
It was very difficult to show the course ofOSD with radiography, and MR images were especially useful for revealing early and progressive lesions of OSD. Expand
Evaluation of tibial rotational stability of single-bundle vs. anatomical double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction during a high-demand activity - a quasi-randomized trial.
TLDR
The results suggest a trend towards dynamic overcorrection after the ACL reconstruction, with anatomical double-bundle reconstruction restores normal tibial rotation no more than single-b Bundle reconstruction during this high-demand dynamic activity. Expand
Lumbar Intervertebral Disk Degeneration in Athletes
TLDR
Continuous competitive baseball and swimming activities during youth may be associated with disk degeneration, and the study indicates that the experience of severe low back pain might be a predictor of disks degeneration in youth. Expand
Kinematic quantitation of the patellar tendon reflex using a tri-axial accelerometer.
TLDR
The important features of this method are portability, ease of use, and non-constraint of solicited reflex responses. Expand
Usefulness of Myelography in Brachial Plexus Injuries
TLDR
The results show that myelography can be a reliable and useful pre-exploratory measure to assess the level of the lesion of each injured root. Expand
Effects of taurine administration in rat skeletal muscles on exercise
TLDR
It is concluded that peroral administration of taurine maintains the t aurine concentration in skeletal muscle on exercise and up-regulates physical endurance. Expand
The use of a novel PLGA fiber/collagen composite web as a scaffold for engineering of articular cartilage tissue with adjustable thickness.
TLDR
A novel kind of composite web scaffold that could be used for tissue enginnering of articular cartilage with the thickness adjustable between 200 microm and 8 mm is developed, which could be an important scaffold for tissue engineering. Expand
