The Bioharness™ device is designed for monitoring physiological variables in free-living situations but has only been proven to be reliable and valid in a laboratory environment. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the reliability and validity of the Bioharness™ using a field based protocol. Twenty healthy males participated. Heart rate (HR), breathing(More)
The Bioharness(™) monitoring system may provide physiological information on human performance but there is limited information on its validity. The objective of this study was to assess the validity of all 5 Bioharness(™) variables using a laboratory based treadmill protocol. 22 healthy males participated. Heart rate (HR), Breathing Frequency (BF) and(More)
The increasing complexity of today's information technology (IT) together with our dependency upon it, has led to a situation in which a security breach not only has effects for individuals but can also affect the availability of critical services (power supply, communication) or result in significant financial loss. Criminals and terrorists want to exploit(More)
Digital investigation methods are becoming more and more important due to the proliferation of digital crimes and crimes involving digital evidence. Network forensics is a research area that gathers evidence by collecting and analysing network traffic data logs. This analysis can be a difficult process, especially because of the high variability of these(More)
The effects of ovariohysterectomy on bodyweight, composition and condition score were evaluated in 49 cats that were fed ad libitum and 11 cats that had their food allowances controlled with the aim of maintaining a stable bodyweight. In cats fed ad libitum, bodyweight increased by an average of 31 per cent in the 12 months following ovariohysterectomy(More)
VLDL1, VLDL2, IDL, and LDL and its subfractions (LDL-I, LDL-II, and LDL-III) were quantified in 304 normolipemic subjects together with postheparin plasma lipase activities, waist/hip ratio, fasting insulin, and glucose. Concentrations of VLDL1 and VLDL2 rose as plasma triglycerides (TGs) increased across the normal range, but the association of plasma TGs(More)
The mechanism by which acute insulin administration alters VLDL apolipoprotein (apo) B subclass metabolism and thus plasma triglyceride concentration was evaluated in 7 normolipidemic healthy men on two occasions, during a saline infusion and during an 8.5-hour euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp (serum insulin, 490 +/- 30 pmol/L). During the insulin(More)
The use of therapeutic ultrasound as an element of physiotherapy practice is well established, but the nature of that practice has changed significantly over the last 20 years. This paper aims to review the rationale and range of applications for which this modality is employed in current practice. Whereas in the past, its primary use was as a thermal(More)
Human low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) comprise a spectrum of particles that vary in size, density, chemical composition, metabolic behavior, and atherogenicity. To identify determinants of this heterogeneity, we measured the percent distribution and plasma concentration of the three major LDL subfractions in 34 young healthy subjects. These parameters were(More)
The metabolic origins of equine hyperlipaemia were investigated by analysing the concentration and composition of plasma lipoproteins in 18 ponies with the condition. The mean concentrations of cholesterol, triglyceride and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) were increased by 4-, 52- and 19-fold, respectively, compared with a control group of 18 healthy(More)
