Isolated patellofemoral osteoarthritis can be treated with patellofemoral arthroplasty (PFA). In contrast to total knee arthroplasty, the effect of PFA on knee joint kinematics is not known. A study was performed to identify the kinematic changes after PFA. The sagittal plane kinematics was examined in 12 patients who had undergone Avon PFA. An established(More)
Dyads and triads of college students brainstormed via computer based text chat rather than face-to-face. In one condition, participants were represented as 3D avatars in a virtual space. In another, no avatars were visible. It was hypothesized that triads would outperform dyads due to facilitation from a third perspective, and that having avatars visible(More)
