Facet surfaces of the cricoarytenoid joints from two cadaver larynges were digitized. The data were used to compute the optimal axis of rotation for each of the joints in the sense that the computed axis minimized the variance of the joint gap over the full range of joint motion. The optimal axis corresponded to a rocking motion of the arytenoid on the(More)
The aim of this study was to introduce a Newton-Euler inverse dynamics model that included reaction force and moment estimation at the lumbo-sacral (L5-S1) and thoraco-lumbar (T12-L1) joints. Data were collected while participants ran over ground at 3.8 m x s(-1) at three different stride lengths: preferred stride length, 20% greater than preferred, and 20%(More)
This paper addresses the question of whether maximal vertical jump height depends on initial jumping posture. A direct dynamics computer simulation approach was used to avoid subject preference and practice effects. The human body was modeled as four rigid segments connected by ideal hinge joints, with movement constrained to the sagittal plane and driven(More)
This study examined whether vocal fold kinematics prior to phonation differed between hard (glottal), normal, or breathy onsets in men and women. Glottal landmarks were identified and digitized from videotape recorded with a rigid laryngoscope during different voice onset types. Significant linear relationships (p < or = 0.0055) were found among onset types(More)
PURPOSE To test the application of a technique developed by the authors for the computer-assisted diagnosis of polypoid airway lesions from surface rendered virtual bronchoscopic reconstructions. MATERIALS AND METHODS A computer algorithm was developed to detect polypoid airway lesions by means of segmentation of the bronchial surface with curvature(More)
This paper describes a testing methodology and resultant set of four variables that can be used to quickly and easily document the correct installation, configuration, and combined working status of force platform (FP) and three-dimensional (3D) motion capture components of a clinical movement analysis (CMA) laboratory. Using a rigid, rod-shaped testing(More)
Muscle stretch enhances force produced in both single fibers and voluntarily activated human muscle. This study determined how initial conditions of muscle stretch (and associated eccentric work), muscle length, and load inertia contributed to human concentric muscular output during maximal voluntary forearm supination. Outputs of angular velocity and(More)
A common biomechanical feature of a golf swing, described in various ways in the literature, is the interaction between the thorax and pelvis, often termed the X-Factor. There is no consistent method used within golf biomechanics literature however to calculate these segment interactions. The purpose of this study was to examine X-factor data calculated(More)
The purpose of this work was to construct a three-dimensional anatomical framework of the cartilages of the human larynx. The framework included representative surface models of the four laryngeal cartilages and estimated attachment points for the intrinsic laryngeal muscles. High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to scan one female and(More)
The morphometry, histochemistry, and biomechanical relationships of rectus capitis muscles were examined in adult cats. This family of muscles contained six members on the dorsal, ventral, and lateral aspects of the upper cervical vertebral column. Three dorsal muscles (rectus capitis posterior major, medius, and minor) formed a layered complex spanning(More)
