Residual limb/prosthetic socket interface pressures and shear stresses were measured at 13 sites on two subjects with unilateral transtibial amputation (TTA) using total-contact patellar-tendon-bearing prostheses. Maximal interface stresses during stance phase for each of 13 transducer sites were determined, then means for all steps calculated. Maximal(More)
Interface pressures and shear stresses were measured at 13 sites on two unilateral below-knee amputee subjects ambulating with lower-limb patellar-tendon-bearing prostheses. Interface stresses at the time of the first peak in the shank axial force-time curve were investigated at different socket-shank alignment settings. Stress magnitudes ranged from 1.2 to(More)
The case report describes the effects of 5 Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) combined with transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TES) in a patient with severe stroke. The patient was a 69-year-old male who was affected by a left middle cerebral artery infarction. The patient had no movement in his right hand. To assess the effects,(More)
