This study aimed at evaluating the effects of mechanical repositioning, obtained by the increase in seat-to-back (STB) and system tilt angles, on the position of the pelvis with spinal-cord injured subjects seated in a wheelchair. The noninvasive method used combined magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images of the whole pelvis obtained in a supine posture(More)
The purpose of this paper was to determine the differences between internal and external pelvic landmark locations in different seating positions. A computer tool developed for the registration of two series of images was used to obtain the internal geometry. First, images of the pelvis were acquired by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for each subject, in(More)
This study is the outcome of multicenter endeavour compiling 87 cases of pseudoarthrosis managed according to principles set forth by G.A. Ilizarov. All clinical forms are described: simple pseudoarthrosis (non-infected and without loss of substance); septic pseudoarthrosis; pseudoarthrosis with loss of bone substance, both septic and aseptic.

Pressure ulcers are recognized as a major health issue in individuals with spinal cord injuries and new approaches to prevent this pathology are necessary. An innovative health strategy is being developed through the use of computer and sensory substitution via the tongue in order to compensate for the sensory loss in the buttock area for individuals with(More)
