OBJECTIVE Mechanoreceptors from the foot sole likely contribute in the reflex regulations. Therefore, it was hypothesized that repetitive low threshold afferents stimulation would have an inhibitory effect on the soleus H-reflexes. METHODS Sixteen normal subjects voluntarily, participated in the study and were randomly allocated. Subjects were remained in(More)
The aim of present study was to determine whether combination of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and acupuncture inhibits sympathetic nerve activity in healthy humans. Multiunit efferent postganglionic sympathetic activity was recorded with Toennies set. In this study, the aim was to obtain latency, amplitude and duration of sympathetic(More)
Since the fiber diameter determines the mechanical, electrical, and optical properties of electrospun nanofiber mats, the effect of material and process parameters on electrospun polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) fiber diameter were studied. Accordingly, the prediction and optimization of input factors were performed using the response surface methodology(More)
An adaptive neuro-fuzzy system (ANFIS) model was employed to predict the surface roughness. Surface roughening of titanium biomaterials has a crucial effect on increasing the biocompatibility. For this purpose, sandblasted, large-grit, acid-etched (SLA) has been introduced as an effective method to change the surface texturing and roughness. Subsequent(More)
Low back pain (LBP) is a very common problem in primary care and a major cause of disability. There is no evidence for the efficacy of therapeutic modalities such as ultrasound in LBP In a randomized, single blind placebo controlled clinical trial, we aimed to evaluate the effect of continuous ultrasound (US) in patients with non specific LBP Of the fifty(More)
Although expression of the small heat shock protein family member Hsp25 has been previously observed in the central nervous system (CNS), both constitutively and upon induction, its function in the CNS remains far from clear. In the present study we have characterized the spatial pattern of expression of Hsp25 in the normal adult mouse brain as well as the(More)
In our previous study, we reported the fabrication and characterization of a novel tricalcium phosphate-fucoidan-chitosan (TCP-Fu-Ch) biocomposite scaffold. However, the previous report did not show whether the biocomposite scaffold can exhibit osteogenic differentiation of human bone marrow stromal cells in osteogenic media and normal media supplemented(More)
A comparative study on the in vitro osteogenic potential of electrospun poly-L-lactide/hydroxyapatite/collagen (PLLA/HA/Col, PLLA/HA, and PLLA/Col) scaffolds was conducted. The morphology, chemical composition, and surface roughness of the fibrous scaffolds were examined. Furthermore, cell attachment, distribution, morphology, mineralization, extracellular(More)
Although important, viscoelastic behavior of the ankle's lateral side has rarely been studied. The present study assesses the viscoelastic behavior during cyclic inversions. Eighteen recreationally active healthy males underwent 40 passive cyclic inversions using a Biodex dynamometer at 5 °/s through 80% of maximum range of motion. Energy absorption and(More)
