• RATIONALE: The previous study resulted that the gait training using Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) improved the ankle joint function and the walking ability for the chronic strok. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Numbness at the ankle-joint, after sitting (first day). (homeoint.org)
  • Great numbness in the ankle-joint, whenever he rises from a seat (seventh day). (homeoint.org)
  • numbness in ankle-joint. (homeoint.org)
  • Numbness in the ankle-joint, every time on rising (seventh day). (homeoint.org)
  • Cramps of the left ankle-joint (sixth day). (homeoint.org)
  • Physical examination at the second presentation showed swelling of the right ankle joint, with tenderness and synovial thickening. (bmj.com)
  • When the leg is stretched along the body the tibio-tarsal (ankle) joint lies at a position between the ear and eye. (wikipedia.org)
  • It lies at first on the lateral side of the anterior tibial artery, then in front of it, and again on its lateral side at the ankle-joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the leg, the deep peroneal nerve supplies muscular branches to the anterior compartment of extensor muscles in the leg which include the tibialis anterior, extensor digitorum longus, peroneus tertius, and extensor hallucis longus (propius), and an articular branch to the ankle-joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • Arthritis care (primarily surgical) of the ankle joint and the joints of the hindfoot (tarsals), midfoot (metatarsals) and forefoot (phalanges) also plays a rather significant role. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ankle joint of pseudosuchians (including crocodilians) and phytosaurs, passing between the astragalus and calcaneum, is also called crurotarsal joint in the literature. (wikipedia.org)
  • Currently, there are 3 main hypotheses suggesting how humans maintain postural stability while standing: Stiffness of ankle joint: The stiffness model was first introduced by Winter et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • Additionally, the stiffness (i.e. total moment divided by sway angle) was found to be very close to 1, indicating a resemblance between the ankle joint and a perfect spring. (wikipedia.org)
  • showed that in the cat ankle joint, many of its muscles have predominant moment arms about the adduction/abduction axis. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, researchers have found a weak correlation between muscle length and ankle joint angle, indicating that the stretch reflex is probably not the main contributor to postural stability. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis of joint Ankle joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ankle mortise, the fork-like structure of the malleoli, holds these three articulate surfaces in a steady grip, which guarantees the stability of the ankle joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • The talus bone of the ankle joint connects the leg to the foot. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ligament is strengthened medially by blending with the deltoid ligament of the ankle joint, and is supported inferiorly by the tendon of the Tibialis posterior, which is spread out in a fanshaped insertion and prevents undue tension of the ligament or such an amount of stretching as would permanently elongate it. (wikipedia.org)
  • It passes obliquely forward and lateralward, superficial to the deltoid ligament of the ankle-joint, into the sole of the foot, where it crosses below the tendon of the flexor hallucis longus (plantar tendinous chiasm), and receives from it a strong tendinous slip. (wikipedia.org)
  • it projects below the tibia, and forms the lateral part of the ankle-joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • It may receive contributions from branches of the anterior lateral malleolar and the perforating branch of the peroneal artery directed towards the joint capsule, and from the lateral plantar arteries through perforating arteries of the foot. (wikipedia.org)
  • The foot is adducted and plantar-flexed at the subtalar joint, and the goal is to abduct the foot and dorsiflex it. (wikipedia.org)
  • The metatarsals and phalanges are very long and thin and can not have been weight-bearing, suggesting that Rodhocetus was predominantly aquatic and on land must have walked on the plantar surface of the tarsals. (wikipedia.org)
  • For the forearm, when standing in the anatomical position, pronation will move the palm of the hand from an anterior-facing position to a posterior-facing position without an associated movement at the shoulder joint). (wikipedia.org)
  • The posterior facet is the largest of the three, and separated from the others by the tarsal canal. (wikipedia.org)
  • These ribs are aligned along the neck and bridge multiple consecutive vertebral joints, from two or three consecutive joints in the anterior the neck to five or six in the posterior neck. (wikipedia.org)
