AIM This paper is a report of a study conducted to compare the predictive accuracy for fallers of The Northern Hospital Modified St Thomas's Risk Assessment Tool and St Thomas's Risk Assessment Tool, and to determine the inter-rater agreement of each tool. BACKGROUND Falls risk assessment is a key component of fall prevention. Investigation of clinimetric(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if a programme of progressive resistance exercise, mobilisation and orientation, in addition to usual care, was superior to usual care alone in the prevention of incident delirium in older hospitalised patients.

This paper describes an automated classifier for the identification of good wood and knotty wood from computer tomography (CT) images of logs. Such a system is intended to allow better assessment of saw logs before being cut into timber. We describe a new empirical model for the growth of Sitka Spruce (Picea Stichensis (Bong, Carr)) whose operation is(More)
In this work we investigated the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in order to describe the behaviour of a single Micro Tubular Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (MT-SOFC) and a bundle thereof. It is the first step before building a rather necessarily complicated experimental apparatus in order to compare the predictions with experimental measurement. The first(More)
