  1. 1. Altered movement patterns and deviating muscular activity in individuals with anterior cruciate ligament injury

    Author : Anna Trulsson; Fysioterapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Movement pattern; Physiotherapy; Motor control; Sensorimotor control; Neuromuscular control; Anterior cruciate ligament; Muscular activity; Motor skills; Single leg squat; Electromyography EMG ; Postural orientation; Assessment; Task performance; Reproducibility of findings; Performance test; Hop test; knee; dynamic joint stability;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to increase the understanding of altered movement patterns in individuals with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in order to improve ACL rehabilitation, and to develop an observational instrument termed Test for Substitution Patterns (TSP) for standardized, quantifiable scoring of altered movement patterns in legs and trunk. In all, 142 participants, 93 with ACL-rupture (37 women) and 49 uninjured participants were investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Network state estimation in wireless multi-hop networks

    Author : Anna Chaltseva; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dependable Communication and Computation Systems; Kommunikations- och beräkningssystem;

    Abstract : Multi-hop wireless networks in general and those built upon IEEE 802.11 standard in particular are known for their highly dynamic and unstable performance. The commonly accepted way for improving the situation is to jointly optimize the performance of protocols across different communications layers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Is seeing just believing? Measurement properties of visual assessment of Postural Orientation Errors (POEs) in people with anterior cruciate ligament injury

    Author : Jenny Älmqvist Nae; Institutionen för hälsovetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; knee injury; Lower extremity; Anterior Cruciate Ligament; orientation spatial; Postural orientation; Performance-based measures; Reproducibility of results; Hop performance; Patient reported outcome measures;

    Abstract : Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a common knee injury among young physically active populations. The injury results in impaired physical functions, such as joint instability, limitations in daily activities and sport-specific activities, and worse movement quality, e.g., altered postural orientation.

  4. 4. Modeling and design of multi-hop energy efficient wireless networks for control applications

    Author : Piergiuseppe Di Marco; Karl Henrik Johansson; Sanjay Shakkottai; KTH; []

    Abstract :   Energy efficiency is essential for many industrial and commercial wireless network applications. In this thesis, we propose an analytical framework to model and design protocols for multi-hop wireless networks for industrial control and automation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Kinetic chain weight training, strength assessment, and functional performance testing: with reference to sports and rehabilitation

    Author : Jesper Augustsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; open kinetic chain; closed kinetic chain; weight training; strength assessment; functional tests; anterior cruciate ligament; reconstruction; fatigue;

    Abstract : The overall purpose of the studies was to obtain knowledge about physical performance in healthy individuals and patients after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Data are presented that concerns closed and open kinetic chain exercise, adaptive response to weight training, the methodology of muscle strength assessment, and the development of a functional testing protocol performed under conditions of fatigue.
