BACKGROUND Practitioners need more sensitive measure to quantify reaching movement for judgment of the treatment effects and reflecting the degrees of motor impairment in upper extremities. The purposes of this study were to identify the specific kinematic characteristics between normal and spastic reaching under different levels of accuracy, and to(More)
Amyloid-β (Aβ)-induced mitochondrial dysfunction has been recognized as a prominent, early event in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Therefore, therapeutics targeted to improve mitochondrial function could be beneficial. Quercetin, a bioflavanoid, has been reported to have potent neuro-protective effects, but its preventive effects on Aβ-induced mitochondrial(More)
BACKGROUND Presently, the angular movements of the three thumb joints during activities of daily living are limited as a result of their static position and lack of the required thumb range of motion information during motion. The purpose of this study was to investigate the three thumb joints' motion required in activities of daily living. METHODS(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify the kinematic and kinetic strategies used by patients with unilateral triple arthrodesis or subtalar fusion during level walking, stair ascent, stair descent and to determine the influence of these different conditions on kinematics and kinetics. Nine subjects with unilateral triple or subtalar fusion and five(More)
The rocker sole and solid-ankle cushion-heel (SACH) heels are the most commonly prescribed external shoe modification. Only a limited number of scientific evidence exists to support these interventions in clinical practice. The objective of this study was to determine the effects of rocker soles and SACH heels on kinematics during gait. In this study, we(More)
OBJECTIVES Recently, yoga classes specifically for women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) have increased, but there is little research about the efficacy of these classes. The primary aims of this study were to evaluate the effect of yoga exercise on women with PMS and to evaluate the immediate change of attention performance after yoga classes. METHODS(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effect of changes in speed and incline slope on plantar pressure distribution of the foot during treadmill jogging. Plantar pressure parameters were measured with the Pedar-X system in twenty healthy girls (mean age of 20.7 years, mean height of 1.60m, and a mean weight of 53.35kg). Because variations in walking(More)
UNLABELLED Coccydynia is pain in the coccygeal region, and usually treated conservatively. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) was incorporated as non-invasive treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions. However, the effects of ESWT on coccydynia are less discussed. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of ESWT on the outcomes of(More)
BACKGROUND This study hopes to establish the timeframe for a safe return to driving under different speed conditions for patients after minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty and further explores how well various kinds of functional tests on knee performance can predict the patients' braking ability. METHODS 14 patients with right knee osteoarthritis(More)
