This article describes and explains the moment arm vector (MAV) concept, uses the concept for the quantitative classification of hip muscles according to action, and applies the findings to selected clinical problems. A three-dimensional, straight-line model of hip musculature was used. Measurements made on a matched, dry bone specimen provided muscle(More)
This study was undertaken to determine the onset, duration, and degree of electromyographic activity in the anterior, middle, and posterior segments of the gluteus medius muscle during functional activities. Fine wire electrodes were inserted into each muscle segment. After a triaxial hip electrogoniometer was applied, each of the 10 subjects performed the(More)
Clinical practice databases are frequently used to assess outcomes in various medical specialties. Formulating a computerized physical therapy medical record requires standardization of clinical assessments among the users. The purpose of this article is to describe an acute care physical therapy database system that emphasizes high-quality measures of(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the strength of trunk flexors and extensors in normal male subjects during isometric, concentric, and eccentric contractions. Subjects were tested in the sidelying position to minimize the effects of gravity. The pelvis and lower extremities were measured on a custom built force table (lowa Force Table). Muscle(More)
The dipole response of stable and unstable neutron-rich oxygen nuclei of masses A = 17 to A = 22 has been investigated experimentally utilizing electromagnetic excitation in heavy-ion collisions at beam energies about 600 MeV/nucleon. A kinematically complete measurement of the neutron decay channel in inelastic scattering of the secondary beam projectiles(More)
We compared the effects of four treatment variables on the pain reduction produced by transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and attempted to establish indications for TENS based on patient history and pain evaluation items. Treatment variables were the therapist and the three TENS stimulus characteristics--pulse width, frequency, and amplitude. We(More)
Low-lying resonance states in 7He(6He+n), formed after fragmentation reactions of a 227 MeV/nucleon 8He beam on a carbon target, have been studied. Coincidences between 6He nuclei and neutrons, corresponding to the one-neutron knockout channel in 8He, were selected. The relative energy spectrum in the 6He+n system shows a structure, which is interpreted as(More)
