    Author : Pia Klernäs; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lymphedema; Sensitivity; Responsiveness; Reliability; Validity; PROM; Questionnaire; Quality of life; Psychometric testing; lymfödem; Livskvalitet; psykometriska tester; reliabilitet; sensitivitet; validitet; responsiveness; enkät;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to develop a lymphedema-specific instrument for measuring health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and to evaluate how persons with lymphedema experience HRQoL. Lymphedema is defined as swelling in one or more parts of the body that is due to impaired lymph drainage and transport. READ MORE

  4. 4. Validity and reliability of a submaximal cycle ergometer test for estimation of maximal oxygen uptake

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan, GIH

    Author : Frida Maria Eleonora Björkman; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is the highest obtained rate of oxygen consumption during a physically intense dynamic whole-body activity. VO2max is an important factor for many types of physical performance, as well as a strong independent predictor of health and longevity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structure and function of the ankle dorsiflexor muscles in young healthy men and women

    University dissertation from Anna Maria Holmbäck, Department of Physical Therapy, University Hospital, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden
