The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether force platform measurements can be used to objectively assess short-term effects of spinal manipulation on patients with diagnosed, chronic unilateral "sacroiliac dyskinesia," here defined as decreased interarticular mobility of the sacroiliac joint. Nine patients walked across a force platform,(More)
Centrally acting cholinergic drugs have been reported to increase regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) as measured by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in brain regions affected by Alzheimer's disease (AD). We studied the effects of the acetylcholine releaser linopirdine (LPD) on SPECT rCBF in patients with probable AD. Twenty-four AD(More)
In this retrospective study, we quantified the mean extensor moment at the ankle, knee and hip over the stance period in a group of independently ambulant children with spastic diplegia (n = 90; 167 limbs) and in a group of normally-developing (ND) children (n = 22; 22 limbs). The mean knee extensor moment and the mean support moment demonstrated greater(More)
Two-dimensional ultrasound imaging was combined with motion analysis technology to measure distances between remote anatomical landmarks. The length of the belly of the medial gastrocnemius muscle in five normal adults (nine limbs) was estimated using this technique. Our results in vivo were similar to the reported data for the lengths of muscles in(More)
UNLABELLED SPECT has shown increasing promise as a diagnostic tool in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Recently, a new SPECT brain perfusion agent, 99mTc-ethyl cysteinate dimer (99mTc-ECD) has emerged with purported advantages in image quality over the established tracer, 99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime (99mTc-HMPAO). This research aimed to compare cerebral(More)
Artificial gravity has been proposed as a method to counteract the physiological deconditioning of long-duration spaceflight; however, the effects of hypergravity on the central nervous system has had little study. The study aims to investigate whether there is a relationship between prefrontal cortex brain activity and prefrontal cortex oxygenation during(More)
