The purpose of this study was to employ a computerized motion analysis system to identify the effect of ankle arthrodesis on the three-dimensional kinematic behavior of the rear and fore foot during level walking. A three-segment rigid body model was used to describe the motion of the foot and ankle. The results demonstrated that sagittal plane motion of(More)
It is important to be able to quantify changes in gait pattern accurately in order to understand the clinical implications of surgery or rehabilitation. Although supervised feed-forward backpropagation neural networks are very efficient in many pattern-recognition tasks, the genetic algorithm neural network (GANN), which can search in some appropriate(More)
The aim of this study was to develop an empirical model of parameter-based gait data, based on an artificial neural network and a genetic algorithm, for the assessment of patients after ankle arthrodesis. Ground reaction force vectors were measured by force platforms during level walking. Nine force parameters expressed in percentage of body weight and(More)
[Purpose] To investigate how balance changes develop across time under different conditions (with or without a memory task) for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). [Subjects and Methods] The participants were 11 children with ADHD and 12 normal children. To determine their static balance ability, a force plate was used to measure(More)
It is often seen an object move or vibrate repeatedly. Some phenomenons are useful, but another is unavailable motion. The unavailable motion makes a lot of energy dissipation. In order to utilize the energy unavailable motion makes, the research will use the energy to generate electric power for solving the deficient personal energy sources problems. In(More)
