  1. 1. Balance, gait performance and muscular strength in the elderly

    University dissertation from Ortopediska kliniken, Universitetssjukhuset MAS, 205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Karin A M Ringsberg; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; populations; elderly; muscular strength; Balance; gait performance; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : Fracture incidence is higher in urban than in rural inhabitants. Background factors such as physical activity and workload may have an influence on the tendency to fall, leading to fractures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Muscle strength and motor function in neuromuscular disorders. A clinical study of children and adolescents with spinal muscular atrophy, myotonic dystrophy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and amyoplasia

    University dissertation from Ortopediska kliniken, Universitetssjukhuset MAS, 205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Anna-Karin Kroksmark; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; muscle involvement; muscle function; motor performance; contractures; spinal muscular atrophy; myotonic dystrophy; Duchenne muscular dystrophy; amyoplasia; arthrogryposis multiplex congenita;

    Abstract : Aim: The aims of this study were to investigate muscle strength and motor function in children and adolescents with four neuromuscular disorders; 1) spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), 2) myotonic dystrophy (DM), 3) Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD and 4) the amyoplasia form of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. Further: 1) to analyze compensatory maneuvers due to muscle weakness in individuals with SMA, 2) to correlate motor function in individuals with DM with the size of the mutation, 3) to evaluate the long-term side effects and effects on muscle strength, motor function, vital capacity and development of scoliosis in boys with DMD treated with low-dose prednisone, and 4) to investigate how muscle strength and joint contractures affect motor function in individuals with amyoplasia and to relate current status to joint position at birth.

  4. 4. Vitamin D, muscle strength, prolonged labour, Caesarean sections and lifestyle Clinical and intervention studies in pregnant Somali and Swedish women and new mothers

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Paul Kalliokoski; Monica Löfvander; Maria Bullarbo; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; : caesarean section; dystocia; immigrant; muscle strength; obstetric labour complications; osteomalacia; physical performance; Somalia; vitamin D; vitamin D deficiency; Family Medicine; Allmänmedicin;

    Abstract : Long-term severe vitamin D deficiency may cause osteomalacia with muscle weakness, pain, soft bones, cramps and eventually death. In a pilot study, I found many Somali women to be vitamin D deficient and very weak. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biomechanical and neural aspects of eccentric and concentric muscle performance in stroke subjects Implications for resistance training

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Mattias Hedlund; Britta Lindström; Peter Sojka; Ronnie Lundström; Carl-Johan Olsson; Jan Lexell; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fMRI; Isokinetic; Motor imagery; Muscular strength; Resistance training; Neurological rehabilitation;

    Abstract : Muscle weakness is one of the major causes of post-stroke disability. Stroke rehabilitation programs now often incorporate the same type of resistance training that is used for healthy subjects; however, the training effects induced from these training strategies are often limited for stroke patients.
