Mobility using the timed up and go (TUG) and perceived pain, stiffness, and physical function (Western Ontario McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index) were documented after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The relationships between mobility and perceived function are limited post-TKA. The first purpose of this study was to determine and compare the TUG(More)
Software has a life cycle. It is conceived, matures, and dies. If uncontrolled during this life cycle, software, when executed, can produce undesirable results. Auditing is one process that should be performed periodically during the life cycle to reduce the likelihood of aberrant software behavior. Unfortunately, the trend in current practice is to perform(More)
partnered in July of 2009 on an effort to address High-Impact, Low-Frequency risks to the North American bulk power system. In August, NERC formed a steering committee made up of industry and risk experts to lead the development of an initial workshop on the subject, chaired by Scott Moore, VP Representatives from each of the North American electric(More)
Practical suggestions are presented for effectively managing software development in small-project environments (i.e., no more than several million dollars per year). The suggestions are based on an approach to product development using a product assurance group that is independent from the development group. Within this check-and-balance(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The association between closed-chain knee extensor strength and perceived physical function following primary knee replacement has not received much attention.The purpose of this investigation was to determine the relationship of closed and open chain measures of strength with self-reported measures of physical function and mobility(More)
assessed the procurement and supply environment of large power transformers (LPT) 1 in this report. LPTs have long been a major concern for the U.S. electric power sector, because failure of a single unit can cause temporary service interruption and lead to collateral damages, and it could be difficult to quickly replace it. Key industry sources—including(More)
