Quantifying the effects of external shear loads on arterial and venous blood flow: implications for pressure ulcer development.
INTRODUCTION Forces applied to the skin cause a decrease in regional blood flow. This decrease in blood flow can cause tissue necrosis and lead to the formation of deep, penetrating wounds called… Expand
Blood perfusion and transcutaneous oxygen level characterizations in human skin with changes in normal and shear loads--implications for pressure ulcer formation.
BACKGROUND Decubitus ulcers (pressure ulcers) are localized areas of tissue breakdown in the skin and the underlying regions. Decubitus ulcers affect approximately 3 million people in the USA every… Expand
An approach for hip joint center calculation for use in seated postures.
In seated postures, such as those in office or automotive seats, locating the hip joint center (HJC) using three markers on the pelvis has been difficult if not impossible. A two-target approach by… Expand
Support force measures of midsized men in seated positions.
Two areas not well researched in the field of seating mechanics are the distribution of normal and shear forces, and how those forces change with seat position. The availability of these data would… Expand

Most musculoskeletal disorders of the head and neck regions cannot be identified through imaging techniques; therefore clinician-conducted assessments (passive motions) are used to evaluate the… Expand
Interface forces on the seat during a cycling activity.
BACKGROUND The last several years have seen an increased interest in elucidating the causes of non-traumatic injuries specific to bicyclists. Injuries may include soreness of the pelvis, skin… Expand

The human hand has a wide range of possible functional abilities that can change with age, disease, and injury, and can vary from individual to individual and subsequently can affect a person's… Expand
A Comparison of Four Office Chairs Using Biomechanical Measures
Objective: The authors sought to use biomechanical measures, including motion and pressure, to compare four office chairs. Background: The fit of a person to a chair is related to the geometric and… Expand

Diagnoses of human musculoskeletal dysfunction of the cervical spine are indicated by palpable clues of a patient's structural compliance/noncompliance as this body segment responds to diagnostic… Expand
Do Canes or Walkers Make Any Difference? NonUse and Fall Injuries
Purpose of the Study Examine patterns of cane and walker use as related to falls and fall injuries. Hypotheses Among people who fall at home, most do not have an assistive device with them when… Expand
