  1. 1. Subject-specific musculoskeletal modeling of the lower extremities in persons with unilateral cerebral palsy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Olesya Klets; Elena Gutierrez-Farewik; Sven Kleiven; [2011]
    Keywords : cerebral palsy; moment arm; muscle length; hemiplegic; MRI; subject-specific; musculoskeletal modeling; lower extremities; muscle volume; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Mechanical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : The computational musculoskeletal models that are used to study muscle moment-generating capacities of persons with movement disorders and planning treatment options must be accurate, and take into account the inter-individual variability of musculoskeletal geometry.In Paper I the methods of creating the subject-specific musculoskeletal model of the lower extremities from magnetic resonance images (MRIs) were developed.

  2. 2. Early arterial disease of the lower extremities in diabetes diagnostic evaluation and risk markers

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : David Sahli; Maria Svensson; Eric Wahlberg; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetes mellitus; ankle blood pressure; toe blood pressure; screening; risk markers; mediasclerosis; macroangiopathy; fibrinolysis; inflammation; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Diabetology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Diabetologi;

    Abstract : The aim of the present thesis was to assess the occurrence of early lower extremity arterial disease (LEAD) in patients with diabetes and to assess novel potential risk markers for development or worsening of LEAD in the same patients. In parallel different measures of impaired peripheral circulation were evaluated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Upper and Lower Motoneuron Lesions in Tetraplegia - Diagnostic and Therapeutic Implications of Electrical Stimulation

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Ines Bersch; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Electrical stimulation; Tetraplegia; Upper motoneuron lesion; Lower motoneuron lesion; Motor point topography; Nerve transfer;

    Abstract : The overall objective of this thesis was to improve outcomes and predictability of the treatment of upper extremity function in patients with cervical spinal cord injury and tetraplegia by advancing the diagnostic and therapeutic tools employed in upper and lower motor neuron lesions. An overview is presented of the current knowledge about the principles of electrical stimulation and its usefulness and proven effects on the upper limb. READ MORE

  4. 4. Near infrared spectroscopy for assessing oxygenation and hemodynamics in the upper extremities of healthy subjects and patients with work-related muscle pain

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Guilherme Hilgert Elcadi; Albert Crenshaw; Mikael Forsman; Martin Fahlström; Svend Erik Mathiassen; Karen Sogaard; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Near infrared spectroscopy; muscle oxygenation; hemodynamics; electromyography; extensor carpi radialis; trapezius;

    Abstract : The prevalence of work-related muscle pain (WRMP) is large in the general population in the industrialized world. Despite significant advances over recent years in some research areas, the mechanisms of why WRMP occurs and the pathophysiological mechanisms behind the disorders are still unclear. READ MORE
