A strain of albino rat used widely for experimental purposes because of its calmness and ease of handling. It was developed by the Sprague-Dawley Animal Company.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
Embryonic (precursor) cells of the myogenic lineage that develop from the MESODERM. They undergo proliferation, migrate to their various sites, and then differentiate into the appropriate form of myocytes (MYOCYTES, SKELETAL; MYOCYTES, CARDIAC; MYOCYTES, SMOOTH MUSCLE).
A sustained and usually painful contraction of muscle fibers. This may occur as an isolated phenomenon or as a manifestation of an underlying disease process (e.g., UREMIA; HYPOTHYROIDISM; MOTOR NEURON DISEASE; etc.). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1398)
Filamentous proteins that are the main constituent of the thin filaments of muscle fibers. The filaments (known also as filamentous or F-actin) can be dissociated into their globular subunits; each subunit is composed of a single polypeptide 375 amino acids long. This is known as globular or G-actin. In conjunction with MYOSINS, actin is responsible for the contraction and relaxation of muscle.

Devices employed in electrical policing rely on fundamental responses of nerve and muscle to supraphysiologic current to quell disruptive behavior. Whilst widely deployed the use of neuromuscular incapacitation (NMI) remains controversial, in part, due to gaps in understanding of the underlying mechanisms related to injury. NMI device manufacturers are thus constrained by empirical evidence for safety and effectiveness for a specific device design. Here we examine published data for several NMI devices considering ex vivo signal characteristics and in vivo responses in relation to effectiveness and injury. The sensitivity of lactate production to NMI device signal frequency (Hz) and macro-dosimetry is explored as a primary device design factor in NMI modes of injury. The non-lethal approach to policing regardless of technology will result in fatalities due to compromised health and substance abuse status unknowable at the time of NMI application. Thus, research to establish a science-based understanding
The incapacitation system has been modified to put players into a locked view facing away from the player that incapacitates them for a (default) time period of ten seconds. The incapacitated player is also prevented from using any commands or VOIP calls except for the Medic call. This incapacitation locking time value may be modified (or the feature disabled entirely) by the server administrator via a new INI configuration entry. The purpose of this new functionality is to give a slight advantage to the player who incapacitates another so they may move away (or secure) the incapacitated soldier and reduce the reporting by incapacitated soldiers during the initial locked view time period. Once the locked view time period has expired incapacitation works just like it did in 3.0.7 ...

A person, who due to mental illness, mental deficiency or any other mental disorder is not able to control their conduct, may be declared completely legally incapacitated (Article 13 of the Civil Code of 23 April 1964). Pursuant to Article 16 of the Civil Code a person whose condition does not justify the declaration of complete incapacitation, but who needs assistance to manage their affairs, may be declared partially legally incapaci-tated.. The consequences of the incapacitation are the following: the limitation or exclusion of the possibility to enter into civil-legal transactions independently (Article 14 of the Civil Code), to become a proxy (Article 109.2 of the Civil Code), to draft a will (Article 944 of the Civil Code) or enter into marriage (Article 11 §1 of the Family and Guardianship Code of 25 February 1964). In the scope of labour law, it is impossible for the legally incapacitated person to take up a job, and the autonomy of the partially incapacitated person is limited (Article ...
Evaluating incapacitation also requires an assessment of whether a respondent (person accused of alleged sexual misconduct) should have been aware of the complainants (person who experienced the conducts) incapacitation based on objectively and reasonably apparent indications of impairment when viewed from the perspective of a sober, reasonable person in the respondents position.. In general, the College considers sexual contact while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs to be risky behavior.. Alcohol and drugs impair a persons decision-making capacity, awareness of consequences, and ability to make informed judgments. It is especially important, therefore, that anyone engaging in sexual activity be aware of the other persons level of intoxication.. If there is any doubt as to the level or extent of the other individuals intoxication or impairment, the prudent course of action is to forgo or cease any sexual contact or activity.. ...
Does Bushinsky really believe that an Arab soldier from Umm el-Fahm would carry out an order to kill or capture a terrorist in Jenin, or that a haredi soldier would carry out an order issued by his commanding officer without first checking whether it was in compliance with Halacha? What would be workable and wise, and has worked in America, is a change from a welfare system to a workfare system whereby the number of financially dependent has been dramatically reduced over the past 20 years. The system requires able-bodied individuals to provide service in order to receive benefits. Many graduate to regular-paying jobs ...
A mobility limiting injury can throw me back down into a mental world of not coping. My body reacts with anxiety before my mind invents a reason to be racing. I have to pay attention to be able to recognise that this is happening, that my physical sensations are guiding my thoughts and that I have the power to let those thoughts go. I have to find the strength to deny the extra pain and incapacitation as a reason to give up and cry. I have to be strong enough to recognise that (in all likelihood) the injury will heal and I will be okay again. I have to be brave enough to trust my body, despite its history of letting me down. Its a lot of thinking and realising and letting go. Its a lot. ...
Obese and overweight dogs are predisposed to getting diabetes because their blood glucose level will continue to increase. The dogs body will naturally secrete insulin in higher amounts but at some point its body will not be able to cope with the increased amounts of insulin and diabetes will result.. A dog with extra weight is much more likely to develop arthritis at a younger age. Typically a dog will develop arthritis after the age of eight but an obese dog may have joint problems much earlier in life because the extra weight adds stress on the joints which in turn cause pain and swelling.. Extra weight can add pressure on the dogs ligaments and tendons causing further soreness. The ligaments in the dogs knees and feet may become injured, causing incapacitation. Weight loss is essential to reduce stress on the dogs joints, tendons and ligaments. In severe cases the dog will require surgery.. Arthritis is not a treatable condition, but may be managed with supplements like Winstons Joint ...
Myocardial infarction is difficult to detect early. Due to delayed and uncertain diagnosis, physicians are unable to take treatment decisions during the golden hour, i.e. before commencement of necrosis. These delays cause incapacitation and death of the patient. We propose to build a smart instrument that will rapidly diagnose myocardial Infarction. We will employ a microcantilever-based bio-sensing system, to detect early cardiac markers (eg. myoglobin) that are released in the blood after an MI event. The instrument will be highly sensitive, highly selective and would provide a rapid diagnosis. The instrument can be used even by a qualified nurse at a rural primary healthcare centre in India.. ...
The medulla oblongata is the organ associated with immediate incapacitation. Its only about the size of a walnut, however, so the odds that Foster struck it cleanly with an antique .32 are terribly low. Add to that the fact that the organ is fed by three arteries, so even if Foster struck it cleanly, his wound should have produced much more blood than was recorded either by the US Park Police or the pathologist quoted. The pathologist claims that due to the attitude of Fosters body, ie on an incline with his feet below his heart, that the blood pooled within the body, and poured out when the body was placed within a bag. Over time, the blood should have thickened, so that its viscosity was more akin to syrup rather than flowing water. All of that ignores the splatter and spray that should have resulted from a head GSW. These are significant inconsistencies, that have not been resolved, at least not to this laymans satisfaction, at any rate. ...
The differential patterns of behaviour of hearing parents (30 married couples) who cope with the reality of parenting a hearing-impaired child were studied. Responses on the Questionnaire on Resources and Stress indicated no significant differences between mothers and fathers for pessimism, child characteristics, and physical incapacitation. Mothers obtained a significantly higher stress-response on their perception of difficulties for themselves, other family members, and the family as a whole. Parents with more education reported less stress than those with less education. Mothers perceived the emotional support they received from their spouses as insufficient and the amount of free time they had for themselves as inadequate.. ...
Roosevelt won 432 electoral votes to Deweys anemic 99. He and Harry Truman were sworn into office on January 20, 1945. By then, Roosevelt had had numerous moments of serious incapacitation, though the campaign had seemed to revive his vigor. Truman, who had met FDR for an opportunity to be photographed with him was not briefed by Roosevelt on the events affecting either foreign or domestic affairs. To most Americans, he was a blank slate, but he turned out to be a successful President and was returned to office in the next election ...
I am scheduled to be out of town next week on non-Institute business. It has been pointed out that we have no succession plan of leadership to conduct business in my absence or sudden demise. This is a huge problem. The problem is that we have no qualified candidates to assume these responsibilities. I have studied parallel circumstances to attempt to find some solution, but have been stymied at every turn to date. For example, upon the death or incapacitation of members of Congress, there have been instances of spouses assuming the position their spouse occupied. Mrs. Kfred would be a logical choice to be my replacement, but, as Director of Institute Safety, she has no interest in the Executive Director position. I would not be so cruel as to saddle Kred Jrs 1 or 2 at this point in their young lives to have to deal with this band of Weirdos, Whackos, and Misfits. Dickie the Peap would probably be the immediate and first choice to carry on our mission, but his disability prevents him from ...
Of course a brush with death or incapacitation like that also intensifies and clarifies what is truly important, so its fair to say it helped me both streamline my activities and stop unconsciously treating both health and time as if they are limitless resources - theyre not. It created a sense of urgency.

Studying variability in wheelchair propulsion allows for a greater understanding of the natural range of movements. Attaining a greater sense of this range of natural movements allows for increased confidence in the results of future wheelchair propulsion studies, since movements in this range would not be specifically attributed to the experimental condition. Understanding this variability in 10-minute trials might prove to be helpful in the future for wheelchair training purposes, considering that improvements can be identified with greater confidence if they are outside of the natural variation. Additionally, this study provides insight regarding whether the wheelchair movements observed in able-bodied individuals can be used to represent the movements of manual wheelchair users, which is helpful information if researchers plan to use able-bodied individuals in future wheeling studies relevant to individuals with SCI.. ...
The term incapacitating agent is defined by the U.S. Department of Defense as: An agent that produces temporary physiological or mental effects, or both, which will render individuals incapable of concerted effort in the performance of their assigned duties. Lethal agents are primarily intended to kill, but incapacitating agents can also kill if administered in a potent enough dose, or in certain scenarios. The term incapacitation, when used in a general sense, is not equivalent to the term disability as used in occupational medicine and denotes the inability to perform a task because of a quantifiable physical or mental impairment. In this sense, any of the chemical warfare agents may incapacitate a victim; however, by the military definition of this type of agent, incapacitation refers to impairments that are temporary and nonlethal. Thus, riot-control agents are incapacitating because they cause temporary loss of vision due to blepharospasm, but they are not considered military ...
To determine possible crime reduction effects of incapacitation, the data was examined on a case-by-case basis, and a methodology suited to the ambiguities in the data was developed. Marginal benefits were measured by the actual number of police contacts and serious adjudications that occurred, and marginal costs were measured in terms of the incarceration rate maintained by the policy. It was concluded that there is no evidence in the study to support the argument that selective incapacitation is a practical strategy for crime reduction. This analysis calls attention to the danger that sophisticated statistical analysis will obscure rather than reveal the reality behind the data, especially when researchers ignore the organizational settings in which the data were collected. 6 tables, 7 notes, and 36 references (Author abstract modified) ...
White-tailed kite (Elanus leucurus) populations in the 1930s were close to extirpation in the United States. But by the 1940s, an upward trend towards recovery was apparent and continued to their current stable population levels. These dramatic fluctuations in kite numbers may have been related to changes in rodent prey populations due to the conversion of native habitats to agriculture. To address this question, we evaluated the use of stable isotope analysis in determining if a shift in diet could be isotopically differentiated in current and historic kite populations. We first compared δ 13C, δ 15N, and δ 34S values from present-day kite flight feathers and prey fur samples from four locations in California. The total ranges of isotope values for kite and their rodent prey were similar within each site. Carbon isotope values ranged from m 27.1 to m 22.2 in Arcata, m 26.1 to m 16.9 in Davis,...
Abstract: : Purpose: When culturing human RPE cells changes in the distinctive tissue characteristics are observed, including loss of functional aspects such as apical-basal polarity and pigmentation. Loss of these characteristics limits comparisons between the in vivo and cultured systems. The development of epithelial morphology in tissues is thought to be related to cadherin signal transduction and formation of cell junctions. A Ca2+ switching protocol was used to induce rapid formation of such junctions. This protocol also tested for additional changes in the functional tissue characteristics. Recovery of such functional aspects is necessary to obtain a cultured model system more similar to that seen in vivo. Methods: RPE cell cultures devoid of pigment displaying a variety of morphologies were used between passages five and sixteen. The cultures were trypsinized and split into paired groups. One group was maintained in low (50 µM) Ca2+ DMEM plus 10% dialyzed FBS while the other was ...
Housed in the College of Engineering, the CSNE is a cross-disciplinary hub that brings together medicine and engineering to develop novel solutions for conditions that range from stroke to spinal cord injury. Its an ecosystem of innovation centered on a shared mission: empowering people with disabilities through connecting brains with technology.. The CSNE has become the catalyst for almost seamless collaboration between neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, neuroethicists and engineers, says Rao. Together, were paving the way for next-generation neurotechnologies that will help the body heal, feel and move again.. When the average able-bodied individual wants to sip a cup of coffee, for instance, they dont think about bringing the mug to their lips - they just do it. But while the intent to move is still there for individuals who have undergone stroke or spinal cord injury and experience paralysis, theres a missing link - say, a damaged nerve - in the loop that sends that message from the ...
What researchers Brad Turnwald and Alia Crum were actually interested in wasnt specialized diet plans or exercise routines, but how people reacted to them. So they devised a plan to give participants fake results, random information that was in no way tied to their actual DNA profiles.. For the researchers, the study wasnt about molding able-bodied individuals through DNA testing, but measuring whether the results of a DNA test patterned not only behavior, but the body itself, at a molecular level.. Or, might there be a placebo effect at play once people learned of their genetic superiority, or inferiority, as it may be?. To analyze the hypothesis, Stanfords researchers concocted two experiments. They selected two genes: CREB1, which has been linked to aerobic exercise capacity, and FTO, linked to hunger cues. Researchers split the participants in half, evaluating results for one group with the CREB1 gene, and the other with the FTO gene - testing hunger levels in the latter, and aerobic ...
One of the interesting things the author discusses is how temporary cavities do not generally contribute to incapacitation. That is, when a bullet hits you, the force temporarily pushes your flesh apart, but as it penetrates or stops moving, the flesh flaps back closed behind it, with only a smaller, more permanent cavity being important. Handgun bullets and other projectiles tend to leave only small permanent cavities, which must penetrate into the central nervous system, key blood vessels or other organs where a small loss of mass is sufficient to incapacitate the person. The end result of this is many people, when injured but not incapacitated by a weapon, just keep on doing whatever theyre doing (trying to kill you or run away from you, mainly ...
Workers claim that they have been subjected to unacceptable living and working conditions since 2012. Appropriate rest is recognised as a prerequisite for proper working conditions, but housing conditions at Lom Pangar are deplorable. Though the law obliges employers to pay a compensatory housing allowance to workers in case lodging facilities do not respect minimum legal requirements, CWE has failed to respect the construction specifications, such as the number of occupants per room and has not paid the compensatory allowance. In Lom Pangar, four workers share a room which reduces sleep intensity, affecting performance and concentration at work. Consequently, some workers have suffered serious accidents resulting in incapacitation. Instead of retraining incapacitated workers as required by law, CWE has dismissed some for lack of capacity and are underpaying those maintained by downgrading their posts.. In January 2014, a Cameroon Network of Human Rights Organizations report called the human ...
The removal of the frogs brain or incapacitation by spinal injury was conveniently left out of subsequent renditions until the story virtually became a legend. Thus was born the cautionary tale of the frog in boiling water syndrome.. Many subsequent experiments were conducted on unimpaired frogs. Some claimed that if the heat were increased gradually enough, even unimpaired amphibians would remain in the water until their demise. Either way the story goes, it is an appropriate metaphor for the way FDA and CDC officials treat American medical consumers.. Whether these government health officials believe medical consumers are brainless or spineless enough to accept everything put forth by health authorities without question; or whether FDA/CDC officials believe they are turning up the heat gradually enough that no one will notice makes no difference.. By continuing to promote a one-size-fits-all vaccination schedule, knowing full well that vaccines can and do cause substantial harm (even ...
At about that time, I was called in to assist two dentists who were unable to work due to health reasons.. Jimmy had a large orthodontic contract, which he maintained with the assistance of a young associate.. When he developed angina and subsequently needed a quintuple coronary bypass, he turned to me to become his minority partner in order to maintain the practice.. He clearly understood the risks of general anaesthetics and wanted to ensure that in the event of his demise or incapacitation, the practice could be sold as a going concern.. Dave was an otherwise fit 62-year-old with a 99% NHS, single-handed practice.. He suffered a severe spinal injury whilst cycling and would never practice again.. With the assistance of his lawyer, I joined him as a partner and was able to manage the business until a buyer was found.. In Daves case, he was going to need constant care for the foreseeable future so every penny was important.. These cases brought home to me the value and necessity of planning ...
It is common that in a terminal patient can exist multiple symptoms, that are changing, intense and its origin is due to multiple factors and that, in addition, cause in it a certain degree of incapacitation, worry and emotional impact.. The intensity of the symptoms depends on many factors that surround the patient as the company, affection, distraction, environment, etc. that can alter the perception and sensation of pain or other symptoms. In general, as the disease progresses, the number of symptoms and their intensity increases.. When family or medical personnel caring for the sick, not only help you deal with physical problems that prevent you to meet their basic needs (food, hygiene, hydration, sleep, etc.) they get to improve their quality of life and well-being.. General care of the patient must be adapted to their situation, prognosis and location and it is necessary to establish the priorities of the moment.. ...
http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/nursing_home_negligence>Nursing home abuse, though despicable, is hardly uncommon.

Unfortunately, nursing home abuse tends to be underreported because individual homes do not take elder abuse seriously and residents fear embarrassment, injury, even incapacitation for speaking up. As with any abuse, the only way to prevent more instances is to stop it immediately as soon as abuse is suspected.. Thoroughly investigate any nursing home being considered. Undervalued, underpaid, and untrained employees tend to render more abuse. Ask about and watch for high employee turnover rates. Employees who are not properly trained or paid may not be concerned with the residents in their charge and even less concerned about challenging authority if they suspect ...
The conviction rate in drug facilitated sexual assault (DFSA) cases is known to be very low. In addition, the potential impact of toxicological results on the case is often not well understood by the judicial authorities. The aims of this study were (1) to obtain more knowledge concerning the prevalence of incapacitating substances in DFSA cases, (2) to create a more efficient DFSA analysis strategy taking background information into account, and (3) to evaluate the potential impact of systematic toxicological analysis (STA) on the final judicial outcome. This small-scale epidemiological study (n = 79) demonstrates that commonly-used illicit drugs, psychoactive medicines and ethanol are more prevalent in DFSA cases in contrast to the highly mediatized date rape drugs. Additionally, via case examples, the interest of performing STA-to prove incapacitation of the victim-in judicial procedures with mutual-consent discussions has been demonstrated as it led to increased convictions. However, more
In its weekly meeting on Wednesday night, the Graduate Student Council (GSC) addressed issues surrounding the Campus Climate Survey, KZSUs complaint over its funding and graduate students healthcare issues. Survey committee. Brian Cook, the Director of Assessment and Program Evaluation, asked the GSC for its thoughts as the Campus Climate Survey (CCS) Committee considers a recommendation to the Provost. As of Wednesday evening, the committee had not made a recommendation. Emma Tsurkov J.S.M. 15, a Ph.D. candidate in sociology, informed the council of several problems with the previous Campus Climate Survey administered in 2015, as discussed last night in an Associated Students of Stanford University (ASSU) meeting. According to Tsurkov, the survey failed to collect data on individuals inability to consent due to incapacitation from drugs or alcohol and failed to differentiate between sexual misconduct and sexual assault.. Cook also observed that trust is a big issue for student ...
For the past 103 days - ever since junior doctors decided not to report for work citing incapacitation - patients have been hard-pressed to find convenient alternative institutions where they could find care.

Perfusion CT is a technology which allows functional evaluation of tissue vascularity. Due to this potential, it is finding increasing utility in oncology. Although since its introduction continuous advances have interested CT technique, some issues have to be still defined, concerning both clinical and technical aspects. In this study, we dealt with the comparison of two widely employed mathematical models (dual input one compartment model - DOCM - and maximum slope - SM -) analyzing their robustness to the noise. We carried out a computer simulation process to quantify effect of noise on the evaluation of an important perfusion parameter (Arterial Blood Flow - BFa) in liver tumours. A total of 4500 liver TAC, corresponding to 3 fixed BFa values, were simulated using different arterial and portal TAC (computed from 5 real CT images) at 10 values of signal to noise ratio (SNR). BFa values were calculated by applying four different algorithms, specifically developed, to these noisy simulated curves.
An MRI-guided breast biopsy uses magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate breast tissue. Certain tissue characteristics that are not easily seen on ultrasound or mammography can be detected by MRI. The images are used to locate suspicious regions of breast tissue and visually assist in taking samples. Since MRI uses magnetic fields to obtain images, there is no radiation exposure.. ...
Magnetic resonance imaging is an imaging methodology based on aligning the spin axis of nuclei within molecules of the object being visualized using both powerful superconducting magnets and radio frequency signals and detectors. Cardiology uses are growing, especially since MRI differentiates soft tissues better than CT and allows for comprehensive exams including the quantitative assessment of size, morphology, function, and tissue characteristics in one single session. Current implementations for Cardiology uses are sometimes limited by lengthy protocols, claustrophobia and contraindications based on some complex metallic implants (pacemakers, defibrillators, insulin pumps), while artificial valves and coronary stents are generally not problematic. Image quality can be reduced by the continuous movement of heart structures. There is a promising future in cardiac MRI by more efficient scans, increasing availability of scanners and more widespread knowledge about its clinical application. ...
Introduction: Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) ranks 4th on the list of cancer-related deaths which is mostly due to therapy resistance. The tumor microenvironment is one of the main hallmarks to contribute to therapy resistance in which tumors are characterized by large amounts of stroma deposition, and hypovascularization. In this study we assess the use of non-invasive functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for characterization of these tumor microenvironment characteristics and its prognostic and predictive role. Diffusion weighted (DWI) MRI and dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE)-MRI provide insight in stromal content and tumor vascularization. Subsequent correlation of imaging with immunohistochemical (IHC) stainings can validate the biological basis of these imaging modalities. Here, we propose a method to correlate functional MRI to corresponding histology derived tissue characteristics.. Methods: Patients suffering from (borderline) resectable PDAC underwent DWI and DCE-MRI on a ...

Imaging cellular activities in an entire intact whole organ with light is a grand challenge in optical microscopy. To date, most passive clearing techniques were shown to transform brain, neuronal and embryo tissue into near transparent state for deep tissue imaging. Here, we expand these passive clearing protocol from neuronal tissue (brain and spinal cord) to other visceral organs such as liver and colon and further evaluate their ?depth-clearing performance? based on image contrast of endogenous fluorescence structures. We found that the SeeDB achieve highest depth in brain, 3DISCO is adept at clearing liver and spinal cord and ScaleViewA2 in colon. Overall, 3DISCO clears more rapidly than other agents at a higher cost, while ScaleViewA2 is the most economical but clears at a slower rate. This study, for the first time, provide a direct evaluation of imaging depth, cost and time amongst passive tissue clearing protocols for different intact organs. ...

For adolescent people with ID, falls are more common compared to peers without ID. However, postural balance among this group is not thoroughly investigated. The aim of this study was to compare balance and muscle performance among adolescents aged between 16 and 20 years with a mild to moderate intellectual disability (ID) to age-matched adolescents without ID. A secondary purpose was to investigate the influence of vision, strength, height and Body Mass Index (BMI) on balance. A group of 100 adolescents with ID and a control group of 155 adolescents without ID were investigated with five balance tests and three strength tests: timed up and go test, one leg stance, dynamic one leg stance, modified functional reach test, force platform test, counter movement jump, sit-ups, and Biering-Sørensen trunk extensor endurance test. The results showed that adolescents with an ID in general had significantly lower scores in the balance and muscle performance tests. The group with ID did not have a more ...

Vacuum-assisted suspension (VAS) of prosthetic sockets utilizes a pump to evacuate air from between the prosthetic liner and socket, and are available as mechanical or electric systems. This technical note describes a hybrid pump that benefits from the advantages of mechanical and electric systems, and evaluates a prototype as proof-of-concept. Cyclical bench testing of the hybrid pump mechanical system was performed using a materials testing system to assess the relationship between compression cycles and vacuum pressure. Phase 1 in vivo testing of the hybrid pump was performed by an able-bodied individual using prosthesis simulator boots walking on a treadmill, and phase 2 involved an above-knee prosthesis user walking with the hybrid pump and a commercial electric pump for comparison. Bench testing of 300 compression cycles produced a maximum vacuum of 24 in-Hg. In vivo testing demonstrated that the hybrid pump continued to pull vacuum during walking, and as opposed to the commercial electric ...

These last decades have seen the development of a new type of weapons, the non lethal weapons. Unlike the conventional weapons which may cause severe or fatal injuries and whose injury mechanisms are well documented, the non lethal weapons are designed for temporary incapacitation with reversible consequences or minor damage to the human body. They try therefore to fill the gap wherever the use of excessive forces or conventional weapons is not necessary. There are various non lethal technologies but here we will focus on non lethal kinetic energy weapons (NLKEW). The non penetrating characteristics of non lethal projectiles lead to different injury mechanisms to those related to conventional lethal ...

The CWC prohibits development and possession of chemical agents that can cause death, temporary incapacitation or permanent harm to humans or animals, except where intended for purposes not prohibited under the Convention. Purposes not prohibited are specified and include only one purpose that may involve combat: law enforcement including domestic riot control. However, riot control agents, defined as chemicals that rapidly produce physical effects which disappear within a short time following exposure, cannot be used as a method of warfare.. Some CWC States Parties are interpreting the Conventions wording as limiting the prohibition of non-lethal agents to interstate armed conflict, and are consequently pursuing their development and the development of munitions to deliver them. These actions raise urgent questions: will there be an attempt to justify the use of non-lethal agents in attacking Iraq? Should the use of riot control agents in military operations that may involve armed ...

A RF ablation catheter for removing athero-stenotic lesions or modifying the tissue characteristics of the interior walls of selected blood vessels is described. The catheter is characterized in having a tip member which during the initial placement of the catheter within the vascular system so that the distal tip member is disposed in a working relation with the lesion to be removed, means are provided for increasing the cross-sectional profile of the tip members to thereby cause it to move into engagement with the lesion to be excised. The application of an RF voltage across a pair of bipolar electrodes is used to create an electric arc for effecting the cutting action, or alternatively, just sufficient RF energy to sear or otherwise alter the tissue surfaces engaged by the distal tip member.
