Reinforcement of motor evoked potentials by remote muscle contraction.
Medical check of competitive canoeists
A sports injury questionnaire survey to 821 active canoeists and a medical check of 63 top competi-tive JCA canoeists, including physical and laboratory tests and radiographic examinations of the chest, spine, shoulder, elbow, and wrist joints, found lumbago to be mainly of myofascial origin or due to spondylolysis.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation of the Motor Cortex in Cervical Spondylosis and Spinal Canal Stenosis
In cervical myelopathy patients, the central motor conduction time was correlated with clinical evaluation and the silent period was significantly shortened, suggesting it might be a useful parameter of spinal pathology.
Newly designed computer controlled knee-ankle-foot orthosis (Intelligent Orthosis)
Even in patients with muscle weakness of the quadriceps, control of the knee joint using the Intelligent Orthosis resulted in a more smooth gait with low muscle discharge.
Control engineering and electromyographic kinesiology analyses of normal human gait
The results obtained here strongly highlight the importance of and necessity for control engineering evaluation of coordinated muscle activities of bi-articular and mono-artic antagonistic muscles for analyses not only of gait but also of sports injuries.
Electric discharge patterns of ankle muscles during the normal gait cycle.
EMG patterns in ankle muscles were examined during normal gait cycles in 147 healthy asymptomatic adults and showed marked activity around the toe-off and before the heel-strike and marked activity during the midstance phase but no activity in the early part of the swing phase.
Pseudarthrosis of the radius associated with neurofibromatosis: report of a case and review of the literature.
An 11-year-old child with pseudarthrosis of the radius associated with neurofibromatosis was treated by conventional bone graft, and the clinical findings and postoperative results are described.
