[Purpose] The purpose of present study was to establish the same-session and between-day intra-rater reliability of measurements of extensor strength in the maximum abducted position (MABP) using hand-held dynamometer (HHD). [Subjects] Thirteen healthy volunteers (10 male, 3 female; mean ± SD: age 19.8 ± 0.8 y) participated in the study. [Methods](More)
Recently several reports have been presented stating that glandular kallikrein is present in human and animal blood, and that the oral administration of hog pancreatic kallikrein (HPK) normalises decreased urinary kallikrein and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) excretions and elevated blood pressure in hypertensive patients. In this study, HPK (2,000 KU/kg body(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of the present study was to establish the intra- and inter-rater reliability of measurement of extensor strength in the maximum shoulder abducted position and internal rotator strength in the 90° abducted and the 90° external rotated position using a hand-held dynamometer. [Subjects and Methods] Twelve healthy volunteers (12 male; mean(More)
