Comparison of low-complexity fall detection algorithms for body attached accelerometers.
The elderly population is growing rapidly. Fall related injuries are a central problem for this population. Elderly people desire to live at home, and thus, new technologies, such as automated fallExpand

Effects of high-impact exercise on bone mineral density: a randomized controlled trial in premenopausal women
Introduction: The purpose of this randomized controlled study was to assess the effects of high-impact exercise on the bone mineral density (BMD) of premenopausal women at the population level.Expand

Effects of 2,3,7,8‐Tetrachlorodibenzo‐p‐Dioxin on Bone in Two Rat Strains with Different Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor Structures
Polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins (PCDDs) are highly toxic environmental contaminants, and 2,3,7,8‐tetrachlorodibenzo‐p‐dioxin (TCDD) is the most potent dioxin. Here, we studied the effects of TCDDExpand

Combination of bone mineral density and upper femur geometry improves the prediction of hip fracture
Bone mineral density (BMD) measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the main determinant of the clinical evaluation of hip fracture risk. However, it has been shown that BMD is not theExpand

Comparison of three-point bending test and peripheral quantitative computed tomography analysis in the evaluation of the strength of mouse femur and tibia.
We compared the mechanical and densitometric testing methods in evaluating the mechanical strength of mouse cortical bones. The femora and tibiae of 10 male mice (weight 32.8 +/- 4.0 g) wereExpand

Influence of the Upper Femur and Pelvic Geometry on the Risk and Type of Hip Fractures
The geometry of the upper femur has been reported to associate with the hip fracture risk in postmenopausal women. However, these associations seem to be partly conflicting, probably because ofExpand

Effects of in utero and lactational TCDD exposure on bone development in differentially sensitive rat lines.
2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is a notorious model compound of highly toxic environmental pollutants, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs). Their toxic effects are mediated viaExpand

Effect of impact exercise and its intensity on bone geometry at weight-bearing tibia and femur.
INTRODUCTION Physical activity is known to enhance the mechanical competence of bone. However, information about the optimal type of exercise is limited. The aim of this study was to evaluate theExpand

Ct-based finite element models can be used to estimate experimentally measured failure loads in the proximal femur.
The objective of this experimental finite element (FE) study was to assess the accuracy of a simulation model estimate of the experimentally measured fracture load of the proximal femur in a sidewaysExpand

Comparison of real-life accidental falls in older people with experimental falls in middle-aged test subjects.
Falling is a common accident among older people. Automatic fall detectors are one method of improving security. However, in most cases, fall detectors are designed and tested with data fromExpand
