    Author : Jörgen Gustafsson; Certec - Rehabiliteringsteknik och Design; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Eccentric viewing; Low vision optics; Low vision rehabilitation; People with low vision; Preferred retinal; locus PRL ; Resolution; Visual acuity; Ophtalmology; Medicinsk teknik; Medical technology; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; rehabilitation; revalidation; kinesitherapy; Oftalmologi; Physical medicine; Contrast sensitivity; Detection; Eccentric correction; CFL ; Central visual field loss; Central scotoma; Aberrations; Astigmatism;

    Abstract : For people with central visual field loss, eccentric vision is all that they have to rely on. Even for those who learn how to correctly utilize their eccentric vision, it will never be as good as the central for two entirely different reasons: the off-axis optics of the eye can result in large refractive errors, and the low function of the peripheral retina.

    Abstract : The overall purpose of this thesis was to explore the impact of exercise and functional performance on development and treatment of knee osteoarthritis in the middle aged. In this thesis, I have studied a population based cohort of middle-aged subjects (35-54 years, 42 % women) with chronic knee pain at baseline, to evaluate the longitudinal effect of muscle weakness on knee osteoarthritis development, the relationship between muscle function and joint load and the effects of exercise on joint load.
