This study establishes intratester reliability for all components of physical performance and intertester reliability for the total scores of upper and lower extremity motor performance in a cumulative numerical scoring system devised by Fugl-Meyer et al. Intertester reliability was found to be high for the total scores of upper and lower extremity motor(More)
* This article is adapted from a paper written in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the Master of Science Degree, Duke University, Durham, NC 27710. Ulnar neuropathy, an overuse compression syndrome injury of the ulnar nerve at the wrist, is frequently associated with bicycling. Previous studies have shown that after severe compression injury to(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine if stabilization of the nontested lower extremity influences the peak torque generated by the knee musculature of the opposite extremity during isokinetic testing. The subjects included 15 males and 15 females, between 18 to 30 years of age, who had no history of right knee pain or pathology. A Cybex I(More)
The amplitude of monosynaptic EPSPs produced by the action of single semitendinosus (ST) Ia afferent fibers in ST motoneurons display little or no increase in amplitude within hours of a spinal cord transection performed at the thirteenth thoracic segment. This finding is in marked contrast to results obtained at the medial gastrocnemius (MG) Ia(More)
