This study examined the effects of different types of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) programs on vertical jump performance. Twenty seven healthy trained male students in sports-sciences were recruited and randomized into three groups. The control group (C group, n = 8) did not perform NMES training. Two other groups underwent 3 training(More)
—Authentication is one of the biggest issues concerning information security in the context of distributed environments. Actually, this crucial step enables both to authorize (or not) a user to access a resource and to define different classes of users on the system. Many papers, like [16], [17], expound various solutions to provide authentication in(More)
Hydrogen sulfide is a potent lethal gas. Supportive care, nitrite therapy and hyperbaric oxygen are the treatment modalities reported in the literature in cases of hydrogen sulfide exposure. We describe an industrial exposure in which 6 workers inhaled high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide when they entered a closed spreader tank partially filled with(More)
Upon insertion, 40 newly made full dentures could be remounted three times in succession by each of two therapists by means of the intraoral central bearing point method. The records were measured electronically and by computer in a special measuring articulator in the right and left condylar area. The shift of the condylar spheres in the three different(More)
In a clinical trial involving 40 fully dentate persons, three different intraoral procedures to determine the sagittal condyle path inclination were checked for accuracy. In each test person the condyle path inclination was determined three times, i.e. by the central bearing point method, the protrusive check-bite method and by a protrusive bite record(More)
– Classical Bloom filters may be used to elegantly check if an element e belongs to a set S, and, if not, to add e to S. They do not store any data and only provide boolean answers regarding the membership of a given element in the set, with some probability of false positive answers. Bloom filters are often used in caching system to check that some(More)
The reproducibility of the intraoral central bearing point method was measured in 46 dentate subjects with a healthy stomatognathic system. Nine complete registrations were carried out on each volunteer, while three different materials were used for fixing the upper to the lower jaw. The occlusal records were examined in the condylar area on a specially(More)
