    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; children; upper limb; deficiency; register validation; scoliosis; arm prosthesis; measurement; occupational therapy; psychopathology; depression; Medicine; Medicin; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Children; upper limb; deficiency; register validation; scoliosis; arm prosthesis; measurement; occupational therapy; psychopathology; depression;

    Abstract : Upper limb reduction deficiency (ULRD) is a rare condition that has been known ever since the 6th century B.C. This is a lifelong deficiency which in an afflicted child can lead to practical limitations, social restrictions and physical problems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Satellite measurements of upper tropospheric water

    Author : Mattias Ekström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cloud ice; upper troposphere; microwave; retrieval; the Odin satellite; humidity; limb-sounding;

    Abstract : Water vapour and clouds in the upper troposphere have strong influence on the Earth's climate system. The present uncertainties regarding the distribution and feedback mechanisms of water to a changing climate are today among the greatest limitations for accurate climate predictions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Brain Plasticity and Upper Limb Function After Stroke: Some Implications for Rehabilitation

    Author : Påvel Lindberg; Jörgen Borg; Hans Forssberg; Margareta Engardt; Cornelius Weiller; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Neurosciences; Stroke; Upper Limb; Brain Plasticity; Functional MRI; Diffusion Tensor Imaging; Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Neuroimaging and neurophysiology techniques were used to study some aspects of cortical sensory and motor system reorganisation in patients in the chronic phase after stroke. Using Diffusion Tensor Imaging, we found that the degree of white matter integrity of the corticofugal tracts (CFT) was positively related to grip strength. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control : Psychometric evidence and comparison with upper limb prosthetic outcome measures

    Author : Helen Lindner; Liselotte Hermansson; Ann-Christin Eliasson; Ann Langius Eklöf; Helena Burger; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; capacity; comparison; icf; myoelectric control; psychometric evidence; upper limb prosthesis;

    Abstract : Evaluation of outcomes using validated prosthetic outcome measures (OMs) is a current priority in upper limb (UL) prosthetics, and OMs with psychometric evidence toward UL prosthesis users are thus necessary. The “Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control” (ACMC) is a tool that assesses the ability to control a myoelectric prosthetic hand. READ MORE

  5. 5. Perception and control of upper limb movement: Insights gained by analysis of sensory and motor variability

    Author : Dmitry Domkin; Mats Djupsjöbacka; John Jeka; Umeå universitet; []
