The dorsalis pedis artery (DPA) was renamed from the anterior tibialis artery after it passed under the extensor retinaculum, and DPA travels between the extensor hallucis longus and extensor digitorum longus muscle along the dorsum of the foot. After giving off the proximal and distal tarsal, arcuate and medial tarsal branches, DPA enters the proximal first intermetatarsal space via the first dorsal metatarsal artery (FDMA), which courses over the first dorsal interosseous muscle (FDIM). For detailed knowledge of the neurovascular anatomy of a dorsalis pedis artery flap (DPAF) as a routine reconstructive procedure after the resection of oral malignant tumors, the precise neurovascular anatomy of DPAF must be studied along the DPA courses as above. In this first review article in the Korean language, the anatomical basis of DPAF is summarized and discussed after a delicate investigation of more than 35 recent articles and atlas textbooks. Many advantages of DPAF, such as a ...
Under simple- and choice-RT conditions, the biceps brachii muscle was examined in 8 healthy male subjects to determine how the temporal and spatial characteristics of elbow flexion and forearm supination differed at the initial phase of EMG activity
Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. WALLER on activities for forearm supination: Wrist curls, flexing the wrist with a very light dumbbell with palm facing forward or backward (reverse wrist curl), can strengthen the forearm and elbow which is good for prevention. But if you already have elbow tendonitis (tennis or golf elbow), then avoiding overuse is advised. Treatment includes rest, icing, an elbow splint, & possibly a cortisone injection if simple measures arent enough.

A Vancouver Island beach (Photo: Adam Jones, Ph.D./Wikimedia). On a weekend walk, one hiker on Canadas Vancouver Island made a grim find on the beach-a human foot, still in its black sock and shoe, with no body attached.. As Atlas Obscura has written, feet show up on beaches in this part of the world all of the time. When bodies end up in the water, the relatively weak ankle joints can separate from the rest of the body. Since the now-free feet are in buoyant sneakers, they float to the surface.. The British Colombia Coroners Service has had a lot of success identifying the owners of these feet. Of the 10 that washed up before this one, only two, belonging to the same person, had yet to be identified, as of September 2015. Now the coroners service has one more case to work on.. CNN reports that the shoe was manufactured sometime after March 2013. Bonus finds: A phone that had been lost for 10 years, still in the same pasture. Every day, we highlight one newly lost or found ...
Continued From Above... Two muscles in the forearm, the pronator teres and pronator quadratus, work together to achieve pronation by pulling on the radius bone of the forearm. The radius is specially designed to rotate at the elbow and wrist joints around the other forearm bone, the ulna. During pronation, the distal end of the radius rotates around the ulna from its position on the lateral side of the wrist to the medial side of the wrist. This action turns the hand, wrist, and forearm almost 180 degrees so that the palm faces posteriorly or inferiorly, depending on the position of the arm.. In the anatomical position, with the arms extended to the sides of the trunk and palms facing forward, the arms are already in the supinated position. The motion of supination turns the palms anteriorly or superiorly to the supine (face-up) position. Another way of thinking about supination is how someone would move their hands to look at their palms or to hold a bowl of soup. The ...
The elbow joint is highly susceptible to joint contracture, and treating elbow contracture is a challenging clinical problem. Previously, we established an animal model to study elbow contracture that exhibited features similar to the human condition including persistent decreased range of motion (ROM) in flexion-extension and increased capsule thickness/adhesions. The objective of this study was to mechanically quantify pronation-supination in different injury models to determine if significant differences compared to control or contralateral persist long-term in our animal elbow contracture model. After surgically inducing soft tissue damage in the elbow, Injury I (anterior capsulotomy) and Injury II (anterior capsulotomy with lateral collateral ligament transection), limbs were immobilized for 6 weeks (immobilization (IM)). Animals were evaluated after the IM period or following an additional 6 weeks of free mobilization (FM). Total ROM for pronation-supination was ...
Purpose: : To determine the effect of panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) on the pulsatile ocular blood flow (POBF) and the pulse amplitude (PA) in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Methods: : Twelve eyes of 12 patients with PDR who had undergone PRP were included. The POBF and the PA were measured with Langham OBF computerized tonometry system before, 1 month and 6 month after the last photocoagulation. Results: : The mean POBF and PA significantly (p,0.05) decreased 1 month (589.8 +/- 74.1 microlit/min and 1.26 +/- 0.23 mmHg) and 6 months (563.39 +/- 51.7 microlit/min and 1.08 +/- 0.10 mmHg) after PRP compared with those (770.2 +/- 90.2 microlit /min and 1.61 +/- 0.24 mmHg) before PRP. Conclusions: : This is the first study to examine the effect of PRP on pulsatile ocular blood flow using the Langham tonometer in patients with PDR. The present results that the mean PA and POBF decrease after PRP indicate that total choroidal blood flow may decrease in response to PRP. ...
Range of motion and stability are important outcome parameters to assess function of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ), in particular pronation, supination, and weight-lifting capacity. The DRUJ semiconstrained implant developed by Scheker et al is intended to reproduce all the functions of the triangular fibrocartilage complex and the DRUJ. The aim of the study was to investigate the subjective, clinical, and radiographic results in 10 patients after primary implantation of the semiconstrained DRUJ arthroplasty following DRUJ derangement and painful instability, with an average follow-up of 3 years with a special focus on the complications. Standardized preoperative and postoperative evaluation included assessment of pain by a visual analog scale, radiographic examination, range of motion measurements, lifting capacity, and grip strength. The patient-perceived function was investigated using clinical score charts. Compared with the preoperative status, range of motion showed little change, ...

Results. Twenty-two radius rods were inserted in 22 patients. All were males with an average age of 29 years (range 1940). Two patients had pre-operative nerve injuries, a median nerve and the other a posterior interosseous nerve injury. There were no neurovascular complications recorded post-operatively. All procedures were performed between 2 and 12 days of the injury (average 4 days). Follow-up was for an average period of 11 weeks (range 8-24). All fractures united with the index procedure. The mean time to union was 10 weeks (range 8-24).. Fourteen patients (64%) had an excellent outcome with a supination/pronation range of 75% or more of the normal side. Six (27%) had a satisfactory outcome with supination/pronation range within 50% of the normal side. Two (9%) had an unsatisfactory outcome with more than 20% loss of pronation/supination. These were the two patients who presented with pre-operative nerve injuries. Their nerve lesions did not recover ...
Purpose.: To compare ocular rigidity (OR) and outflow facility (C) coefficients in medically treated open-angle glaucoma (OAG) patients and controls, and to investigate differences in ocular pulse amplitude (OPA) and pulsatile ocular blood flow (POBF) between the two groups. Methods.: Twenty-one OAG patients and 21 controls undergoing cataract surgery were enrolled. Patients with early or moderate primary or pseudoexfoliative OAG participated in the glaucoma group. A computer-controlled system, consisting of a pressure transducer and a microstepping device was employed intraoperatively. After cannulation of the anterior chamber, IOP was increased by infusing the eye with microvolumes of saline solution. IOP was recorded after each infusion step. At an IOP of 40 mm Hg, an IOP decay curve was recorded for 4 minutes. OR coefficients, C, OPA, and POBF were estimated from IOP and volume recordings. Results.: There were no differences in age or axial length in the two groups. The OR coefficient was ...

Energetic trade-offs exist in all organisms, and under stress, energy may be allocated away from reproduction and towards physiological defense and repair mechanisms. The rocky intertidal environment is ideal for investigating the influence of environmental stress, as organisms are exposed to both terrestrial and marine conditions due to tidal fluctuation. Aerial exposure at low tide can lead to high temperature, desiccation, and oxidative stress. Stress in the intertidal zone increases along a vertical gradient, as organisms in the high intertidal are exposed to air for longer periods of time than those in the low intertidal. Mussels are typically the dominant space-occupiers on temperate rocky shores, and they span the vertical gradient by occupying the entire mid-zone, from the low intertidal, which is a relatively low-stress environment, to the high intertidal, which is a high-stress environment. In this ...
Residual dysfunction after a fracture of the distal radius is most often mild but may give rise to significant impairment especially in the younger active population. The symptoms often manifest around the distal ulna when loading the hand or rotating the forearm. In this region are found articular and soft tissue connections running from the distal ulna to the distal radius as well as to the ulnar side of the carpus. The aims of this thesis were to investigate the effects of distal radius fractures on the structures about the distal ulna and to what extent malunion and ulnar soft tissue lesions affect function. Both patients and cadaver specimens were used in the five different studies.. In a retrospective study of 17 malunited distal radius fractures supination impairment improved significantly by correction of the skeletal malunion. This highlights the importance of distal radioulnar joint congruity for forearm rotation in a subset of cases.. The pathomechanisms of injury to the ...
For shoes designed to correct for the over pronator, you will most commonly find a medial post. A part of the midsole, on the medial side (inside, under the arch of the foot) which is made of denser material. As the foot pronates, the medial post stops the internal rotation of the foot, assisting the foot to go into supination. Take a look at the Asics shoe.. ...
The muscles in the forearm works properly, if the posterior interosseous nerve remains healthy. Quality of life will be affected if the nerve gets damaged.
The study compares permutation-based and coarse-grained entropy approaches for the assessment of complexity of short heart period (HP) variability recordings. Shannon permutation entropy (SPE) and conditional permutation entropy (CPE) are computed as examples of permutation-based entropies, while the k-nearest neighbor conditional entropy (KNNCE) is calculated as an example of coarse-grained conditional entropy. SPE, CPE and KNNCE were applied to ad-hoc simulated autoregressive processes corrupted by increasing amounts of broad band noise and to real HP variability series recorded after complete vagal blockade obtained via administration of a high dose of atropine (AT) in nine healthy volunteers and during orthostatic challenge induced by 90° head-up tilt (T90) in 15 healthy individuals. Over the simulated series the performances of SPE and CPE degraded more rapidly with the amplitude of the superimposed broad band noise than those of KNNCE. Over real data KNNCE identified the expected decrease ...
Ong HT, Tong LZ, Tan JX, Lin J, Burdet E, Teo CL, Ge SSet al., 2016, Pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function using novel robotic device reachMAN2, Pages: 1-7 Studies of robotic therapy for adults with physical disabilities due to stroke have been an active field of research for the last two decades and the results suggest that stroke patients can benefit from this kind of therapy. Due to the success of robot-assisted rehabilitation in adults, it is reasonable to believe that this approach may be well suited to the needs of children with physical disabilities. This paper presents the results of a preliminary study of three children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, using the reachMAN2, a novel robotic device for the pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function. The device has two degrees-of-freedom to train pinching, forearm supination/pronation and wrist flexion/ extension movements. An interactive computer game was developed to increase subjects participation and engagement during ...

Objectives: This study aims to investigate whether resistive index (RI) and peak systolic velocity (PSV) are suitable parameters to determine if a clubfoot differs from feet of the normal population.. Patients and methods: Fifty-four feet of 27 clubfoot patients (22 males, 5 females; mean age 30.4±16.3 months; range, 5 to 72 months) were included in this retrospective study conducted between December 2017 and January 2019. Twenty-seven feet were conservatively treated, 19 had surgical treatment, and eight feet were healthy in patients with unilateral clubfoot. In addition, 22 feet of 11 normal controls (6 males, 5 females; mean age 33.4±15.3 months; range, 15 to 60 months) were studied. Color Doppler ultrasonography examinations were performed to evaluate the three major arteries of the leg and foot: dorsalis pedis (dp), tibialis posterior (tp), and popliteal (pop). Color ...
Passive movements to ankle and foot joints, and followed by gentle passive stretching to the posterolateral tight structures; if possible active movements should be encouraged during therapy. These are done three or four times a day for three to five minutes, with intervals for stroking and massaging the foot and leg. After each procedure the foot is immobilised by means of a soft bandage in the corrected position attained ...
WNT7A encodes a secreted protein that stimulates LMX-1 to confer dorsal patterning in the developing limb ectoderm [18]. The linkage findings of Dietz et al. [15] suggested WNT7A as a highly plausible candidate gene for CTEV. They used seven markers around WNT7A on chromosome 3 in a linkage study of a single large family. Marker D3S3608, about 0.16 Mb away from WNT7A, gave the highest LOD score of 2.18. We used one marker intragenic to WNT7A, one downstream, and one D3S2403 upstream of D3S3608 to ensure that the region surrounding D3S3608 was excluded. This marker also allowed us to exclude linkage to a gene upstream of WNT7A expressed in skeleton, FIBULIN 2. We found no evidence for linkage to any of these markers in this large study, and thus we have shown that variation in either WNT7A or FIBULIN 2 is very unlikely to be significant causes of familial CTEV.. Samples from the 91 families studied represented 168 affected, and 92 unaffected meioses. It is very unlikely that our ability to detect ...
A 51-year-old male who is right-handed visited the outpatient for right fingers-drop. The patients fingers, including thumb, were not extended on metacarpophalangeal joint. The active motion of the right wrist was available. The electromyography and nerve conduction velocity study were consistent with the posterior interosseous neuropathy. Further evaluation was done with the magnetic resonance imaging for finding the space-occupying lesion or any possible soft tissue lesion around the radial nerve pathway. On magnetic resonance imaging, the ganglion cyst, which was about 1.8 cm in diameter, was observed on the proximal part of the superficial layer of the supinator muscle (Arcade of Frohse). The surgical excision was done on the base of ganglion cyst at the base of stalk of cyst which looked to be connected with proximal radioulnar joint capsule. The palsy had completely resolved when the patient was observed on the outpatient department a month after the operation. ...
Proximal radioulnar joint - supination of the forearm. One of the main functions of the biceps is to, along with the supinator muscle, aid in supination of the forearm, which refers to the allowing the forearm, and subsequently, the palm, to be rotated or moved toward the anatomical position, the resulting hand position not dissimilar to that of the biceps curl. This has also been achieved through the use of functional electrical stimulation as a means of emulating electrical impulses used within the synapses, and allow slight movement within those with paralysis. [1] It has also been proven through several tests into muscle group stimulation that a supinated grip allows for close and normal-grip bench press exercises to have a much more profound effect on the biceps brachii and the clavicular portion of the pectoralis major.[citation needed] ...

Thank you for the kind email. I am happy to teach you. Please feel free to take the information I give you and ask any more. I will combine with this posting. My wife and I hopefully will go to Rome next year on vacation. The Fettig Modification is a modification of the Inverted Technique only and used for the many patients with both a pronation tendency and a supination tendency. The Fettig can only be used in forefoot valgus (everted) feet, as it uses the forefoot valgus correction to be an anti-supination instrument. When the inverted technique controls rear foot pronation, the Fettig can grab that lateral column and slow down or stop mid stance to propulsive phase supination. The supination tendency can come from many causes one of which is rear foot varus, another unstable lateral column, or weak ...

Objective: Patients with pure autonomic failure (PAF) have an abnormal fall in blood pressure (BP) with supine exercise and exacerbation of orthostatic hypotension (OH) after exercise. This study assessed the pressor effect of water on the cardiovascular responses to supine exercise and on OH after exercise.. Methods: 8 patients with PAF underwent a test protocol consisting of standing for 5 min, supine rest for 10 min, supine exercise by pedalling a cycle ergometer at workloads of 25, 50 and 75 W (each for 3 min), supine rest for 10 min and standing for 5 min. The test protocol was performed without water ingestion and on a separate occasion after 480 ml of distilled water immediately after pre-exercise standing. Beat to beat cardiovascular indices were measured with the Portapres II device with subsequent Modelflow analysis.. Results: All patients had severe OH pre-exercise (BP fall systolic 65.0 (26.1) mm Hg, diastolic 22.7 (13.5) mm Hg), with prompt recovery of BP in the supine position. 5 ...
We sought to investigate the thickness of plantar fascia, measured by means of ultrasonographic evaluation in healthy, asymptomatic subjects, and its relationship to body mass index, ankle joint dorsiflexion range of motion, and foot pronation in static stance. One hundred two feet of 51 healthy volunteers were examined. Sonographic evaluation with a 10-MHz linear array transducer was performed 1 and 2 cm distal to its insertion. Physical examination was also performed to assess body mass index, ankle joint dorsiflexion, and degree of foot pronation in static stance. Both examinations were performed in a blinded manner. Body mass index showed moderate correlation with plantar fascia thickness at the 1- and 2-cm locations. Ankle dorsiflexion range of motion showed no correlation at either location. Foot pronation showed an inverse correlation with plantar ...
1. Isometric activation of pronator quadratus in supination and neutral wrist position can serve to stabilise the distal radioulnar joint (both pre-and postoperatively). Isometric exercise of the FCU will act to compress the pisiform against the volar aspect of the triquetrum, thus contributing to stability in the presence of an ulnar midcarpal instability pattern. However, with instability of the SLL, isometric exercise can either be beneficial or detrimental depending on the degree of ligament injury. If the SLL is intact, flexor carpi radialis (FCR) is thought to be an important dynamic stabiliser of the scaphoid, possibly due to its compression action at the scaphotrapezial-trapezoid joint. In a complete lesion however, cadaver studies of FCR have revealed a significant increase in its moment arm and subsequent increase in the load distributed through the radial carpus, thus enhancing the scaphoid displacement ...
Upon completion of the parental consent form, each test subject will be instructed to flip a two-sided coin to determine the sitting position of the test subject. If the flip reveals a heads, the child will be instructed to sit in a chair; chairs will be appropriately sized to allow the child to rest his/her feet on the ground. If the flip reveals a tails, the child will be instructed to sit on a small carpet piece that measures 2-feet by 2-feet. Each test subject will be taken to their gaming station which will sit approximately 8 feet away from a 55-inch flat screen television that will be on a 30-inch table and handed a wireless controller. Two gaming stations will be available with one featuring the game Lego Batman and the other featuring Lego Indiana Jones with both gaming stations testing simultaneously. The test subjects will be told they can play for 5 minutes with a Physical Therapist at each station to monitor and record the test subjects positioning ...
The elbow joint (Figures 22-1, 22-2, 22-3, 22-4, 22-5, and 22-6) is a compound synovial joint and consists of the radiohumeral (radiocapetellar), ulnohumeral (trochlear), and proximal radioulnar articulations. The movements of elbow flexion and extension occur at the ulnohumeral joint and range between 150 and 160 degrees, with between 0 and 10 degrees of hyperextension. The main flexor muscles are biceps brachii and brachialis, whereas the main extensor muscle is triceps. The movements of supination and pronation occur at the proximal radioulnar joint and the radiohumeral joint. Biceps brachii muscle and supinator muscles are the primary supinators, whereas the pronator teres is the primary pronator. The ulnar or medial collateral ligament is the major stabilizer of the elbow joint during the throwing motion. The timing of appearance of secondary ossification centers around the elbow is listed in Table 22-1. All fuse to form a singe epiphysis between 14 and 17 years of age. The distal ...
A proximal radioulnar joint (lateral elbow) prosthesis includes an ulnar brace member to be secured to the outer surface of the ulna bone. The ulnar brace member defines a bearing surface for supporting the radius. The prosthesis may also include a radial brace member which cooperates with the ulnar brace member.
Figure 3 demonstrates the alternative of performing only the elbow flexion/extension. The Physical Therapist fills in the first and second columns of Sheet 1, all the times and angles, to create a sequence of movements. The first graph shows the sequence being created. When the sequence is completed, it should be saved and then it starts to execute. The first and the second columns from Sheet 1 and the second graph are marked as zero because they are related to the forearm pronation/supination movements and there is no sequence of movement programmed for this axle. The example in Figure 3 demonstrates, on the first line of Sheet 1, that the equipment is positioned at 40 º of elbow flexion for 10 seconds. This movement occurs at a speed of 4º/sec, but is hidden in the interface; however, it is calculated by the software and displayed in the text file created by the control program. On the second line, for the following 30 seconds, the equipment is going upto 70 º of flexion, from the initial ...
Extensor carpi ulnaris muscle is located in the human forearm that acts to extend and adduct the wrist. It extends the wrist, but when acting alone inclines the hand toward the ulnar side by its continued action it extends the elbow-joint.

Background: Foot disorders are common in older adults and associated with impaired lower extremity function. Reduced muscle mass may play a role in the etiology of foot disorders and consequent poor function. Methods: We examined the association of leg lean mass with foot pain, posture and function among 1,795 individuals (mean age 67 years) from the population-based Framingham Foot Study (2002-2008). Pain was assessed via questionnaire, and a pressure mat classified foot posture (arch: high, low, referent) during standing and function (pronation, supination, referent) during gait. Leg lean mass was measured by whole body dual energy x-ray absorptiometry. Results: In age- and body mass index-adjusted logistic (pain) and multinomial logistic (posture, function) regression models, a 1-standard deviation increase in leg lean ...

The proximal tendons of the biceps brachii are commonly involved in pathological processes and are a frequent cause of anterior shoulder pain.[14] Disorders of the distal biceps brachii tendon include insertional tendonitis and partial or complete tears of the tendon. Partial tears are usually characterized by pain and enlargement and abnormal contour of the tendon.[15] Complete tears occur as avulsion of the tendinous portion of the biceps away from its insertion on the tuberosity of the radius, and is often accompanied by a palpable, audible "pop" and immediate pain and soft tissue swelling.[16] A soft-tissue mass is sometimes encountered in the anterior aspect of the arm, the so-called Reverse Popeye deformity, which paradoxically leads to a decreased strength during flexion of the elbow and supination of the forearm.[17] Tears of the biceps brachii may occur during athletic activities, however avulsion injuries of the distal biceps tendon are frequently occupational in nature and ...
Physiological processes are influenced by environmental factors and plant characteristics. The distribution of photosynthetic capacity of phyllodes of Acacia mangium Willd. seedlings was studied in relation to the in vivo photosystem II (PSII) function, photosynthetic gas exchange, chlorophyll fluorescence and activities of antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase (SOD) and ascorbate peroxidase (APX)) of phyllodes at different positions on seedlings. There was a vertical gradient in photosynthetic capacity of phyllodes along the shoot. Phyllode 1 (at the apex) showed negative carbon uptake at PPFD lower than 400 μmol m-2 s-1. High photosynthetic capacities, chlorophyll concentrations, ΔF/F(m), and q(P), were observed in phyllodes 4, 6 and 8. The high photosynthetic capacities of mature phyllodes could be attributed to the enhanced availability of CO2 and the high efficiency of PSII in energy absorption and utilization. Total SOD and APX activities (on a dry weight basis) were highest at ...
0061]The Applicant has surprisingly found that higher reactor capacities can be achieved if at least a portion of the recycled gas is introduced at a higher level into the reactor vessel 12 than the synthesis gas which is fed at the lower end of the reactor 12. As will be appreciated, this leads to cost savings for the construction of the reactor or, instead, to an increase in capacity for reactors modified to have a second, higher gas inlet. Although not wishing to be bound by theory, the Applicant believes that a possible explanation for the resulting higher reactor capacity is a lower gas hold-up when employing the invention. It is known that the volume of gases and vapours decreases as the Fischer-Tropsch reaction proceeds and gaseous reactants are converted to higher molecular weight hydrocarbon products. There is thus a vertical gradient in the volume of gases and vapours in the reactor 12. By feeding at least a portion of the recycled gas at a higher elevation into the reactor 12, there ...
Abstract-Ocean in deep waters and coastal areas is stratified due to vertical gradient of density. Due to nearly distinct interface between the layers of constant density, a two-layer system is a commonly used configuration to model ocean waters. In such models, various mechanisms can lead to generation of surface and interfacial waves. Furthermore, this system admits nonlinear interactions between surface waves and internal waves. As surface waves approach coastal areas, they become long relative to water depth and through nonlinear interactions can induce long interfacial waves over fluidized seabed. This phenomenon will be studied theoretically in the present paper. The fluid is composed of two layers of density stratified, incompressible, inviscid and immiscible fluids. The depth of the top and bottom layers are assumed to be shallow relative to the typical surface wave and interfacial wave length respectively. The waves in this system are weakly nonlinear and weakly dispersive and can be ...
Vertical gradient is caused by tidal cycles. Sand in the lower intertidal zone only dries out on the surface during low tides, whilst sand in the upper intertidal zone dries out to a greater depth for a longer period. Being uncovered by tides, the upper intertidal zone normally exposes to air and experiences more extreme temperature change than the lower intertidal zone. Therefore, organisms inhabiting in the upper intertidal zone are expected to be more capable of coping with water stress ...
Over pronation occurs when the outside of the runners foot strikes the ground first. As weight is shifted forwards from the outer heel through the rest of the foot the inside, or medial, area of the sole bears the greatest burden. This can put excessive pressure on the big toe. Given time, over pronation can cause problems with the knee joint and painful inflammation of the connective tissue on the sole of the foot. In severe cases it can end a running career.. Overcoming over pronation is possible, however, so these problems will go away. Even if you have not suffered as a result of over pronation, then taking some simple measures will help to keep it that way. This is particularly advisable for runners of both long and short distances. If you are in any doubt about your foot type, then the first thing to do is to consult a professional orthopaedist who will be able to help ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Distal biceps tendon rupture. T2 - An in vitro study. AU - Shukla, Dave R.. AU - Morrey, Bernard F.. AU - Thoreson, Andrew R.. AU - An, Kai Nan. AU - O'Driscoll, Shawn W.. PY - 2012/3. Y1 - 2012/3. N2 - Background: Options for repair of distal biceps tendon ruptures are well-described. However, scant data exist in the literature regarding failure strength of the native tendon. We hypothesize that a) the distal biceps tendon failure strength is sensitive to loading angle, and b) the failure strength is greater than what has been previously reported in the literature. Methods: 15 radii were potted in a simulated supine position, and the native tendon was pulled from the tuberosity at angles of 90, 60, and 30° of flexion (5 per group) relative to the long axis of the radius. The failure load and stiffness were recorded and compared. Findings: The native tendons mean failure load tended to increase as flexion angle decreased. Due to the large variability in strength, mean ...
The axis of supination passes through the centre of the head of the radius proximally and the ulnar styloid distally. The head of the radius rotates within the collar formed by the annular ligament and the ulnar radial notch. Supination rotates the radial head laterally around its axis (pronation rotates it medially).. Pass Criteria:. ...

OBJECTIVE: Clinical and functional assessment of the surgical treatment for acute injury of the distal insertion of the biceps brachial performed with a surgical technique using a single incision in proximal forearm and fixation with suture anchors in the radial tuberosity. METHODS: This study reviewed the medical records of patients who underwent surgical treatment of distal biceps injury during the period between January 2008 and July 2014. In a mean follow-up of 12 months, 22 patients with complete and acute injury, diagnosed through physical examination and imaging studies, were functionally assessed in the postoperative period regarding the range of motion (degrees of flexion-extension and pronation-supination), the presence of pain (VAS), the Andrews Carson-score, and the Mayo Elbow Performance Score (MEPS ...
Background Studies have established an increased risk of radiocarpal joint posttraumatic arthritis in patients with displaced intra-articular fractures of the distal radius, although this phenomenon has yet to be evaluated in the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). Purpose We hypothesized that patients with displaced intra-articular fractures of the sigmoid notch would have a higher prevalence of DRUJ arthritis and greater upper extremity dysfunction after operative treatment of distal radius fractures compared with fractures without sigmoid notch involvement. We also hypothesized that the degree of sigmoid notch incongruity would be correlated with the grade of DRUJ arthritis and the severity of upper extremity dysfunction. Patients and Methods A retrospective review was conducted on surgically treated patients with distal radius fractures with pre- and/or postoperative computed tomography (CT) scans. Patients were divided into groups based on presence or absence of fracture extension into the ...

Ankle fracture is one of the most common injuries. In order to determine the severity of ankle fractures, the Lauge-Hansen classification is frequently utilized. In the classification, Supination-External Rotation (SER) injuries are the most common occurrences. In a clinical setting, SER stage IV (SER IV) can be seen as a fracture of the lateral malleolus (Weber B fibular fractures) on radiographs, when there is no medial malleolus fracture.
Distal biceps tendon rupture is a rare injury which results in loss of flexion and supination strength. Disruption invariably occurs at the radial tuberosity. Early direct reattachment with a modified two incision Boyd-Anderson type repair is depicted in the following series. Under tourniquet, the tendon is exposed through a volar "S" incision at the elbow. The hematoma is evacuated and the tendon is identified ...
Peripheral neuropathy includes a wide range of diseases affecting millions around the world, and many of these diseases have unknown etiology. Peripheral neuropathy in diabetes represents a large proportion of peripheral neuropathies. Nerve damage can also be caused by trauma. Peripheral neuropathies are a significant clinical problem and efficient treatments are largely lacking. In the case of a transected nerve, different methods have been used to repair or reconstruct the nerve, including the use of nerve conduits, but functional recovery is usually poor.. Autophagy, a cellular mechanism that recycles damaged proteins, is impaired in the brain in many neurodegenerative diseases affecting animals and humans. No research, however, has investigated the presence of autophagy in the human peripheral nervous system. In this study, I present the first structural evidence of autophagy in human peripheral nerves. I also show that the density of autophagy structures is higher in peripheral nerves of ...
Beat-to-beat changes in the heart period are transformed into a network of increments bet\-ween subsequent RR-intervals, which enables graphical descriptions of short-term heart period variability. Three types of such descriptions are considered: (1) network graphs arising from a set of vertices and directed edges, (2) contour plots of adjacency matrices A, representing the networks and transition matrices T, resulting from A, and (3) vector plots of gradients of the matrices A and T. Two indices are considered which summarize properties of A and T: the approximate deceleration capacity and the entropy rate. The method, applied to time series of nocturnal RR-intervals recorded from healthy subjects of different ages, reveals important aspect of changes in the autonomic activity caused by biological aging. Independently of the subjects age, following accelerations a pendulum-like dynamics appears. With decelerations, this dynamics develops in line with the subjects age. This aging transition can be
Analog data were analyzed off-line after analog-to-digital conversion at 300 samples per second per channel. The principles of the software for data acquisition and time-variant spectral analysis have been escribed elsewhere.15 16 17 Time-variant spectral analysis of heart period variability represents a development of usual autoregressive power spectral analysis. It is based on a recursive least-squares-method algorithm, which makes the autoregressive identification procedure suitable to update the coefficients of the model every new beat. Therefore, power spectral analysis can be performed on a beat-by-beat basis, permitting the evaluation of the changes in the spectral components during unstable conditions like transient ischemia15 and syncopal events.17 The forgetting factor ω weighs the prediction error terms exponentially, thus permitting focus on the most recent data out of the window of interest. This latter is defined by ω, according to the formula n=1/(1−ω), where n=number of ...
Each time we take a step forward, all of our body weight first rests on the heel of one foot. As our weight moves forward, the entire foot begins to bear the bodys weight, and the foot flattens and this places a great deal of pressure and strain on the plantar fascia. There is very little ?give? to the plantar fascia, so as it stretches only slightly, it pulls on its attachment to the heel. If the foot is properly aligned this pull causes no problems. However, if the foot is ?pronated?(the foot rolls outward at the ankle, causing a break down of the inner side of the shoe), the arch falls excessively, and this causes an abnormal stretching of the relatively inflexible plantar fascia, which in turn pulls abnormally hard on the heel. The same pathology occurs with ?supination? (the rolling ...
The inadequate reaction time of the peroneal muscles in response to an incorrect foot contact event has been proposed as one of the etiological factors contributing to ankle joint inversion injury. Thus, the current study aimed to investigate the efficacy of a myoelectric stimulation applied to the peroneal muscles in the prevention of a simulated ankle inversion trauma. Ten healthy male subjects performed simulated inversion and supination tests on a pair of mechanical sprain simulators. An electrical signal was delivered to the peroneal muscles of the subjects through a pair of electrode pads. The start of the stimulus was synchronized with the drop of the sprain simulators platform.

Though the elbow is similarly adapted for stability through a wide range of pronation-supination and flexion-extension in all apes, there are some minor differences. In arboreal apes such as orangutans, the large forearm muscles originating on the epicondyles of the humerus generate significant transverse forces on the elbow joint. The structure to resist these forces is a pronounced keel on the trochlear notch on the ulna, which is more flattened in, for example, humans and gorillas. In knuckle-walkers, on the other hand, the elbow has to deal with large vertical loads passing through extended forearms and the joint is therefore more expanded to provide larger articular surfaces perpendicular to those forces.[34]. Derived traits in catarrhini (apes and Old World monkeys) elbows include the loss of the entepicondylar foramen (a hole in the distal humerus), a non-translatory (rotation-only) humeroulnar joint, and a more robust ulna with a shortened trochlear notch.[35]. The proximal ...

Twenty-seven shoulders (in 26 patients) that had surgical repair of a rupture of the long head of the biceps tendon between 1962 and 1981 were evaluated at three to 22 years after injury (mean, 13 years). Thirty similar patients had been treated nonsurgically and were evaluated two to 15 years (mean, 4.6 years) after tendon rupture. Biomechanical testing was performed on ten patients in the surgical group and 13 in the nonsurgical group. Residual arm pain was infrequent in both surgically and nonsurgically treated groups. Residual subjective weakness at the elbow was reported in four of the surgical group and in 20 of the nonsurgical group. Surgically treated patients returned to work later than nonsurgical patients; however, 11 in the nonsurgical group were not able to return to full work capacity, versus only two in the surgical group. On biomechanical testing, the nonsurgical group had lost a mean of 21% of supination strength and 8% of elbow flexion strength but had no weakness in grip, ...

Putting aside the subjective nature of this "footprint" test, the actual individual results could be quite different to the speculated actions of the individuals foot / lower limb movement. The foot print images are over simplified / generalised and can confuse people as to what is actually happening to them. For example, the underlying (plantar) surface of the individuals foot (arch) can either be 1mm off the surface or 10mm off the surface (i.e. the sensor pad) and thus could give exactly the same reading (i.e. a high arch profile), yet the dynamic function and structural alignment (i.e. a medial deviated Sub Talar Joint axis) would present totally different results (i.e. high supination resistance force) and subsequent symptoms (i.e. Posterior Tibial Tendonitis)... as well as subsequent footwear prescription.

Radial head subluxation, also known as pulled elbow or nursemaids elbow, is one of the most common upper extremity injuries in young children and a common reason for an emergency department visit.1 The injury typically occurs when a forceful longitudinal traction is applied to an extended and pronated forearm.2 Children with radial head subluxation are usually easily recognized by their clinical presentation and rapidly treated by a simple reduction technique involving either hyperpronation or supination and flexion of the injured arm.3-7. Despite the relative ease of diagnosis and treatment, children with radial head subluxation often wait several hours in a pediatric emergency department for a reduction that takes only a few minutes.8 Such visits have direct health care costs and involve time and stress for the child and their family. While many factors are associated with parental and patient satisfaction in the emergency department, it appears that that early treatment or intervention ...

There are many terms that are frequently used to describe aspects of motion. This article begins explaining these frequently used terms of motion and how both pronation and supination are essential to efficient motion.
At a shoe store, runners are often evaluated while standing, walking, or jogging. Many are told they are pronators. Pronation is a normal part of weight bearing in static and dynamic conditions. In very general terms, as a limb strikes the ground the foot must go through a phase of pronation to absorb and distribute the forces of the body. As we move through a gait cycle, the typical foot will then go through the opposite motion and supinate to act as a spring which helps propel us forward. Pronation is neither an entirely bad thing nor a single action, and pronation during walking may look different when jogging or running or when fatigued.. RELATED: More Reasons To Leave Your Stride Alone. In part, this is where experimentation with barefoot running or transitioning to minimalist running shoes have gained popularity. Motion control shoes are seeking in part to prevent excessive pronation during the gait ...
Treatment: In some cases the most effective treatment is the prescription of an orthotic which comes in a variety of forms depending on your weight, activity level, sports and the type of shoes you are going to wear them in. Shoes which are designed to reduce pronation have a limited impact in reducing this motion in some people if the pronation is excessive &/or they are too heavy. Exercises can be given to reduce the amount of pronation of functionally flat feet. However, this isnt an effective treatment regime in many cases as it doesnt have any direct affect on the mechanism causing the pronation. By that I mean, there is no muscle and subsequently tendon controlling the direct function of the Talus bone (and subsequently the subtalar joint). Thus, exercises have a limited impact.. Strapping (i.e. Low Dye Technique) can also be effective in the treatment of mild cases for controlling adverse pronation. This is covered in the Strapping Techniques section of this site. ...
We report on 7 cases of partial rupture of the distal biceps tendon. The mean patient age was 52 years (range, 38-58 years). There were 5 men and 2 women. The dominant arm was affected in all 7 patients. Pain was the chief complaint in all patients.

Each time we take a step forward, all of our body weight first rests on the heel of one foot. As our weight moves forward, the entire foot begins to bear the bodys weight, and the foot flattens and this places a great deal of pressure and strain on the plantar fascia. There is very little ?give? to the plantar fascia, so as it stretches only slightly, it pulls on its attachment to the heel. If the foot is properly aligned this pull causes no problems. However, if the foot is ?pronated?(the foot rolls outward at the ankle, causing a break down of the inner side of the shoe), the arch falls excessively, and this causes an abnormal stretching of the relatively inflexible plantar fascia, which in turn pulls abnormally hard on the heel. The same pathology occurs with ?supination? (the rolling ...
Three transverse plane measurements were statistically different than preoperatively at 12 weeks after the surgery demonstrating divergence of the lateral coronoid region of the radial incisure of the ulna from the radial head. None of the other measurements within the elbow were statistically different, but measurements of the radioulnar space at the level of the osteotomy site documented a statistically significant caudal tipping of the distal extent of the proximal ulnar segment..

This study investigated the relationship between feet kinematics upon slipping while walking and the outcome of the slip. Seventy-one slips (induced by walking over an unexpectedly slippery surface) were analysed, which included 37 recoveries, 16 feet-split falls, 11 feet-forward falls, and seven lateral falls. Feet kinematics differed between these four slip outcomes, and a discriminant model including six measures of feet kinematics correctly predicted 87% of slip outcomes. Two potentially modifiable characteristics of the feet kinematics upon slipping that can improve the likelihood of successfully averting a fall were identified: (1) quickly arresting the motion of the slipping foot; and (2) a recovery step that places the trailing toe approximately 0-10% body height anterior to the sacrum ...
