STUDY DESIGN Statistical Classification Model for nonspecific chronic low back pain (NS-CLBP) patients and controls based on parameters of motor control. OBJECTIVE Develop a Statistical Classification Model to discriminate between 2 subgroups of NS-CLBP (Flexion Pattern [FP] and Active Extension Pattern [AEP]) and a control group using biomechanical(More)
M-mode ultrasound imaging (US) reflects motion of connective tissue within muscles. As muscle contraction is accompanied by motion of muscle tissue, M-mode US may be used to measure non-invasively the onset of deep muscle activity. Isometric hip abduction was measured on nine healthy subjects in the deep region of the gluteus medius muscle and in gluteus(More)
UK PubMed Central (UKPMC) is a full-text article database that extends the functionality of the original PubMed Central (PMC) repository. The UKPMC project was launched as the first 'mirror' site to PMC, which in analogy to the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, aims to provide international preservation of the open and free-access(More)
Fast and accurate analytical methods are essential to keep pace with sample libraries produced from combinational chemistry and high-throughput biological screening. Many laboratories now use a combination of ionization techniques for the characterization of these samples, including atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI), electrospray ionization(More)
This study assessed the validity of an accelerometer to measure impacts in team sports. 76 participants completed a team sport circuit. Accelerations were collected concurrently at 100 Hz using an accelerometer and a 36-camera motion analysis system. The largest peak accelerations per movement were compared in 2 ways: i) pooled together and filtered at 13(More)
BACKGROUND Capturing the complex time pattern of physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB) using accelerometry remains a challenge. Research from occupational health suggests exposure variation analysis (EVA) could provide a meaningful tool. This paper (1) explains the application of EVA to accelerometer data, (2) demonstrates how EVA thresholds(More)
Delayed onset of muscle activation can be a descriptor of impaired motor control. Activation onset can be estimated from electromyography (EMG)-registered muscle excitation and from ultrasound-registered muscle motion, which enables non-invasive measurements in deep muscles. However, in voluntary activation, EMG- and ultrasound-detected activation onsets(More)
This study aimed to determine if a quantifiable relationship exists between the peak sound amplitude and peak vertical ground reaction force (vGRF) and vertical loading rate during running. It also investigated whether differences in peak sound amplitude, contact time, lower limb kinematics, kinetics and foot strike technique existed when participants were(More)
