    Author : Elisabet Rodby Bousquet; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cerebral palsy; posture; mobility; walking; wheelchairs; assessment tool;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Cerebral pares (CP) är den vanligaste orsaken till motorisk funktionsnedsättning hos barn och ungdomar med en prevalens på 2-3/1000. CP innebär en livslång funktionsnedsättning och den förväntade överlevnaden är nästan densamma som för befolkningen i stort. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neural control of standing posture

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Author : Craig Tokuno; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology; Posture; motor cortex; electromyography; kinematics; H-reflex; pre-synaptic inhibition; transcranial magnetic stimulation;

    Abstract : When humans are asked to stand normally, they are not completely motionless. Rather, small amounts of body movement, termed postural sway, can be observed. Although the postural sway of standing has been well described, the manner in which this sway is neurally controlled and its influence in tasks involving postural re-stabilization are not known.
