BACKGROUND Currently available arthroscopic techniques do not allow the quantification of cartilage stiffness without direct mechanical indentation or penetration of the tissue. PURPOSE A novel device, capable of quantifying cartilage stiffness during arthroscopy, is believed to detect degenerated cartilage. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. (More)
AIM OF THE STUDY to establish and classify various degrees of rigidity of portio-shaped silicone samples tested by obstetricians, midwives and non-medical staff by touching. METHODS to carry out the test, samples with different degrees of rigidity, achieved by varying the components mixed together, had to be produced. Five samples of different rigidity(More)
The aim of the study was to standardize the types of fetal reactions to a short acoustical stimulation in relation to gestational age and the fetal behavioural state. We used polygraphic monitoring in 74 normal pregnancies to investigate the types of fetal reactions after an acoustical stimulation with a bell or a so-called larynx vibrator. A distinction(More)
As a further development of the two component contraction recorder TOKOPORT, a digital microprocessor controlled contraction memory has been built which registers, analyses and displays contractions in pregnant women. The memorized data can be read out in graphic form. The possibility of conveying the data by telephone is under development. The device is(More)
