Measurement of pedal loading in bicycling: I. Instrumentation.
Abstract This paper presents a new instrumentation system to precisely measure pedal loads and pedal position. A pedal/dynamometer unit implementing four octagonal strain rings measures all six load… Expand
Measurement of pedal loading in bicycling: II. Analysis and results.
Abstract A computer-based instrumentation system was used to accurately measure the six foot-pedal load components and the absolute pedal position during bicycling. The instrumentation system is the… Expand

Toluene is the most widely used industrial solvent. It has been shown to be ototoxic in mice and rats, and to increase permanent threshold shift in conjunction with exposure to noise. Chinchillas are… Expand
Deficiency in plasma membrane calcium ATPase isoform 2 increases susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss in mice
Susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is poorly understood at the genetic level. Mice homozygous for a null mutation in the plasma membrane Ca2+-ATPase isoform 2 (PMCA2) gene are deaf… Expand
Genetic influences in individual susceptibility to noise: a review.
Individual animals and humans show differing susceptibility to noise damage even under very carefully controlled exposure conditions. This difference in susceptibility may be related to unknown… Expand
Quantitative measure of genetic differences in susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss in two strains of mice
The CBA/CaJ (CB) and C57BL/6J (B6) inbred strains of mice were exposed for 1 h to noise intensities between 98 and 119 dB SPL. Previous studies indicated that the B6 mice exhibited permanent… Expand

A compound capable of preventing age-related hearing loss would be very useful in an aging population. N-acetyl-L-cysteine (L-NAC) has been shown to be protective against noise exposure, a condition… Expand
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine does not protect mouse ears from the effects of noise*

- 28 April 2010
BackgroundNoise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is one of the most common occupational injuries in the United States. It would be extremely valuable if a safe, inexpensive compound could be identified… Expand
Hearing protector use in noise-exposed workers: a retrospective look at 1983.
Although hearing protectors have been available for more than 60 years, little field surveillance has been done to assess their appropriate wear in noisy occupational environments. This study… Expand
What do we know about hearing protector comfort?
