BACKGROUND Studies investigating peroneal muscle reaction times in chronically unstable ankle joints present conflicting results. The degree of reliability and accuracy of these measurements is unknown in patients with chronic ankle instability (CAI). METHODS 40 patients with CAI and 30 healthy subjects were tested using a sudden ankle inversion of 50(More)
BACKGROUND The assessment of outcomes from the patient's perspective becomes more recognized in health care. Also in patients with chronic ankle instability, the degree of present impairments, disabilities and participation problems should be documented from the perspective of the patient. The decision about which patient-assessed instrument is most(More)

—High splitting, optically amplified, passive optical networks (SuperPONs) are investigated in terms of redundancy provision and protection mechanisms. Options for redundancy, including the important special case of dual homing, are detailed, and it is determined as to which of these options (duplication of the feeder and first distribution section, and + 1(More)
We evaluated whether a blinded observer could identify the neck pain patients in a sample of 42 subjects consisting of neck pain patients and asymptomatic controls.The allocation of subjects to either the control or patient group was based on the scoring of a VAS scale for pain intensity, a Bournemouth Questionnaire (BQ), a manual examination of the(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of headache disorders is not always optimal. Patients are treated in multiple ways, and the lack of scientific arguments for referral and the insufficient implementation of guidelines result in unclear treatment strategies. The coexistence of headache and neck pain can lead to the referral to a musculoskeletal physiotherapist. This(More)
INTRODUCTION Subjects with knee osteoarthritis walk differently compared to healthy subjects. Managing these gait alterations has been proven effective for reducing pain and increasing function. The Stride Analyzer is a low cost gait analysis tool but its clinimetric properties have not been investigated yet in subjects with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical efficacy of transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation in the treatment of postoperative knee arthroplasty pain and to relate these results to the stimulation parameters used. DATA SOURCES PubMed, Pedro and Web of Knowledge were systematically screened for studies investigating effects of transcutaneous electric nerve(More)
This study presents a specific description of forefoot deformation during the stance phase of normal human walking based on the combined analysis of pressure and three-dimensional optoelectronic measurements. Forefoot deformation is measured in forty healthy subjects using (1) a six-camera motion capture system (sampled at 250 Hz) tracking five reflective(More)
