Preservation of postural control of transient lower oesophageal sphincter relaxations in patients with reflux oesophagitis. (1/4959)

INTRODUCTION: In normal subjects, transient lower oesophageal sphincter relaxations (TLOSRs) and gas reflux during belching are suppressed in the supine position. Supine reflux, however, is a feature of reflux disease. AIMS: To investigate whether postural suppression of TLOSRs and gas reflux is impaired in patients with reflux disease. PATIENTS: Ten patients with erosive oesophagitis. METHODS: Oesophageal manometry was performed during gastric distension with 750 ml carbon dioxide. Measurements were made for 10 minutes before and after distension in both sitting and supine positions. RESULTS: In the sitting position gastric distension substantially increased the rate of gas reflux (median (interquartile range)), as evidenced by increases in oesophageal common cavities from 1 (0-1)/10 min to 7 (5-10)/10 min and TLOSRs from 1 (1-1.5)/10 min to 6 (2.5-8)/10 min. However, this effect was suppressed in the supine position in all but one patient (TLOSRs 0 (0)/10 min to 1 (0-4.5)/10 min, common cavities 0 (0)/10 min to 0.5 (0-2)/10 min). CONCLUSIONS: Postural suppression of TLOSRs and gas reflux is generally preserved in reflux disease.  (+info)

Differences in heart rate variability between young and elderly normal men during graded head up tilt. (2/4959)

An autoregressive spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) was used to analyze the differences in autonomic functions during graded head up tilt (HUT) between young and elderly men. After recording at the 0 degree position, the table was rotated to an upright position. The incline of the table was increased progressively to 15 degrees, 30 degrees and 60 degrees. The data obtained from seven young subjects (mean age of 20.0 years) and nine elderly subjects (mean age of 63.3 years) were analyzed. The high frequency components expressed by normalized units (HFnu) were used as the parasympathetic indicators, and HFnu decreased with tilt angle in both age groups. These results suggested that parasympathetic withdrawal have an important role in adaptation to an upright posture in both age groups. However, mean HF amplitude at the 0 degree position in elderly men was not significantly different from that of young men at 60 degrees tilt. A significant interaction effect (age group x tilt angle) was found for mean HF amplitude. The increase of the low frequency components expressed by normalized units (LFnu) and the LF-to-HF ratio in elderly subjects from 0 degree to 15 degrees seemed to be larger than that in young subjects. Sympathetic activities may be sensitive to lower levels of orthostatic stress in the elderly, and the elderly workers are easily affected by a change in workload. Therefore, keeping the workload lower and constant may be recommended to avoid excessive sympathetic activation among the elderly.  (+info)

Effect of obesity and erect/supine posture on lateral cephalometry: relationship to sleep-disordered breathing. (3/4959)

Craniofacial and upper airway anatomy, obesity and posture may all play a role in compromising upper airway patency in patients with the sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between obesity, facial structure and severity of sleep-disordered breathing using lateral cephalometric measurements and to assess the effect of body posture on cephalometric measurements of upper airway calibre variables in obese and non-obese subjects. Lateral cephalometry was carried out in erect and supine postures in 73 awake male subjects randomly selected from patients referred for polysomnography who had a wide range of apnoea/hypopnoea frequencies (1-131 events x h sleep(-1)). Subjects were divided into non-obese (body mass index (BMI) < 30 kg x m(-2); n=42) and obese (BMI > or = 30 kg x m(-2); n=31) groups. Significant but weak correlations were found between apnoea/hypopnoea index (AHI) and measurements reflecting upper airway dimensions: uvular protrusion-posterior pharyngeal wall (r=-0.26, p<0.05) and hyoid-posterior pharyngeal wall (r=0.26, p<0.05). Multiple regression using both upper airway dimensions improved the correlation to AHI (r=0.34, p=0.01). Obese subjects had greater hyoid-posterior pharyngeal wall distances than non-obese subjects, both erect (42+/-5 versus 39+/-4 mm, respectively (mean+/-SD) p<0.01) and supine (43+/-5 versus 40+/-4 mm, p<0.05). Skeletal craniofacial structure was similar in obese and non-obese subjects. In conclusion, measurements reflecting upper airway size were correlated with the severity of sleep-disordered breathing. Differences in upper airway size measurements between obese and non-obese subjects were independent of bony craniofacial structure.  (+info)

Mechanism for the posture-specific plasma volume increase after a single intense exercise protocol. (4/4959)

To test the hypothesis that exercise-induced hypervolemia is a posture-dependent process, we measured plasma volume, plasma albumin content, and renal function in seven healthy subjects for 22 h after single upright (Up) or supine (Sup) intense (85% peak oxygen consumption rate) exercise. This posture was maintained for 5 h after exercise. Plasma volume decreased during exercise but returned to control levels by 5 h of recovery in both postures. By 22 h of recovery, plasma volume increased 2.4 +/- 0.8 ml/kg in Up but decreased 2.1 +/- 0.8 ml/kg in Sup. The plasma volume expansion in Up was accompanied by an increase in plasma albumin content (0.11 +/- 0.04 g/kg; P < 0.05). Plasma albumin content was unchanged in Sup. Urine volume and sodium clearance were lower in Up than Sup (P < 0.05) by 5 h of recovery. These data suggest that increased plasma albumin content contributes to the acute phase of exercise-induced hypervolemia. More importantly, the mechanism by which exercise influences the distribution of albumin between extra- and intravascular stores after exercise is altered by posture and is unknown. We speculate that factors associated with postural changes (e.g., central venous pressure) modify the increase in plasma albumin content and the plasma volume expansion after exercise.  (+info)

Breathing responses to small inspiratory threshold loads in humans. (5/4959)

To investiage the effect of inspiratory threshold load (ITL) on breathing, all previous work studied loads that were much greater than would be encountered under pathophysiological conditions. We hypothesized that mild ITL from 2.5 to 20 cmH2O is sufficient to modify control and sensation of breathing. The study was performed in healthy subjects. The results demonstrated that with mild ITL 1) inspiratory difficulty sensation could be perceived at an ITL of 2.5 cmH2O; 2) tidal volume increased without change in breathing frequency, resulting in hyperpnea; and 3) although additional time was required for inspiratory pressure to attain the threshold before inspiratory flow was initiated, the total inspiratory muscle contraction time remained constant. This resulted in shortening of the available time for inspiratory flow, so that the tidal volume was maintained or increased by significant increase in mean inspiratory flow. On the basis of computer simulation, we conclude that the mild ITL is sufficient to increase breathing sensation and alter breathing control, presumably aiming at maintaining a certain level of ventilation but minimizing the energy consumption of the inspiratory muscles.  (+info)

System identification of closed-loop cardiovascular control mechanisms: diabetic autonomic neuropathy. (6/4959)

We applied cardiovascular system identification (CSI) to characterize closed-loop cardiovascular regulation in patients with diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN). The CSI method quantitatively analyzes beat-to-beat fluctuations in noninvasively measured heart rate, arterial blood pressure (ABP), and instantaneous lung volume (ILV) to characterize four physiological coupling mechanisms, two of which are autonomically mediated (the heart rate baroreflex and the coupling of respiration, measured in terms of ILV, to heart rate) and two of which are mechanically mediated (the coupling of ventricular contraction to the generation of the ABP wavelet and the coupling of respiration to ABP). We studied 37 control and 60 diabetic subjects who were classified as having minimal, moderate, or severe DAN on the basis of standard autonomic tests. The autonomically mediated couplings progressively decreased with increasing severity of DAN, whereas the mechanically mediated couplings were essentially unchanged. CSI identified differences between the minimal DAN and control groups, which were indistinguishable based on the standard autonomic tests. CSI may provide a powerful tool for assessing DAN.  (+info)

Brain activation during maintenance of standing postures in humans. (7/4959)

The regulatory mechanism of bipedal standing in humans remains to be elucidated. We investigated neural substrates for maintaining standing postures in humans using PET with our mobile gantry PET system. Normal volunteers were instructed to adopt several postures: supine with eyes open toward a target; standing with feet together and eyes open or eyes closed; and standing on one foot or with two feet in a tandem relationship with eyes open toward the target. Compared with the supine posture, standing with feet together activated the cerebellar anterior lobe and the right visual cortex (Brodmann area 18/19), and standing on one foot increased cerebral blood flow in the cerebellar anterior vermis and the posterior lobe lateral cortex ipsilateral to the weight-bearing side. Standing in tandem was accompanied by activation within the visual association cortex, the anterior and posterior vermis as well as within the midbrain. Standing with eyes closed activated the prefrontal cortex (Brodmann area 8/9). Our findings confirmed that the cerebellar vermis efferent system plays an important role in maintenance of standing posture and suggested that the visual association cortex may subserve regulating postural equilibrium while standing.  (+info)

Effects of moderate exercise training on plasma volume, baroreceptor sensitivity and orthostatic tolerance in healthy subjects. (8/4959)

The effect of physical training on an individual's ability to withstand an orthostatic stress is unclear. This study was undertaken to determine the effects on orthostatic tolerance in healthy volunteers of training at a level appropriate for unfit subjects and cardiorespiratory patients. In 11 asymptomatic, untrained subjects the following assessments were made: plasma volume by Evans Blue dye dilution and blood volume derived from haematocrit; carotid baroreceptor sensitivity from the slope of the regression of change in cardiac interval against pressure applied to a neck chamber; orthostatic tolerance as time to presyncope in a test of head-up tilting combined with lower body suction; exercise test relating heart rate to oxygen consumption. Subjects were then given a training schedule (5BX/XBX, Royal Canadian Air Force) involving 11-12 min of mixed exercises per day until an age/sex related 'target' was reached. Following training all subjects showed evidence of improved fitness, seen as decreases in heart rate at an oxygen uptake (Vo2) of 1.5 1 min-1 and in the elevation of the regression line between heart rate and Vo2. All also had increases in plasma and blood volumes and decreases in baroreceptor sensitivity. Seven of the subjects showed increases in orthostatic tolerance. Improvement in orthostatic tolerance was related to a low initial tolerance, and was associated with increases in plasma volume and decreases in baroreceptor sensitivity. These results show that moderate exercise training increases orthostatic tolerance in subjects who do not already have a high initial tolerance and suggest that training may be of value in the management of untrained patients with attacks of syncope due to orthostatic intolerance.  (+info)

Make Good Sitting Posture Easy.. People who are injured have trouble keeping a good sitting posture.. Good ergonomics makes good sitting posture easy by putting the bodys strongest muscles in the best position to keep the torso upright, so the postural muscles can work gently and move more often. Leg strength is critical to maintain movement and balance for the torso. The balance point for the upright spine is at the base of the spine, or the bottom of the pelvis on the chair, and the chair height is the foundation for the best leg strength to support the body. Sustaining the best posture requires first ...
Introduction. Research Question: What is the effect of different body positions i.e. lying down, sitting and standing on the blood pressure? Hypothesis: Blood pressure is a measure of the pressure of the blood in the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body (Better Health Channel, 2007). When blood pressure is measured, it is usually expressed as two values, the systolic value and diastolic value. The systolic pressure is the higher value and represents the maximum pressure exerted when the heat contracts, where the lower number, the diastolic value, represents the pressure in the arteries when the heart is at rest (MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopaedia, 2007). There are numerous factors which influence the blood pressure of a person, including age, fitness, psychological factors such as stress, diet, and body position. This investigation will focus on body position and will investigate the effect of different body positions, i.e. lying down, sitting and standing on blood pressure. When ...

Summary of Background Data: Previous studies show calcified hypertrophy is related to mechanical stress, but there are no clear evidences to indicate whether or not long-term and repeated assumption of the upright posture could result in calcified hypertrophy in cartilage end plate of rat lumbar ...
The control of upright stance is commonly explained on the basis of the single inverted pendulum model (ankle strategy) or the double inverted pendulum model (combination of ankle and hip strategy). Kinematic analysis using the uncontrolled manifold (UCM) approach suggests, however, that stability in upright standing results from coordinated movement of multiple joints. This is based on evidence that postural sway induces more variance in joint configurations that leave the body position in space invariant than in joint configurations that move the body in space. But does this UCM structure of kinematic variance truly reflect coordination at the level of the neural control strategy or could it result from passive biomechanical factors? To address this question, we applied the UCM approach at the level of muscle torques rather than joint angles. Participants stood on the floor or on a narrow base of support. We estimated torques at the ankle, knee, and hip joints using a model of the body ...
The objective of this research was to investigate the physiological effects of body posture on cycling. The familiar positions of bicycle riding have been the touring posture (hands stretched on top handlebar) and the racing posture (hands bent at the elbow, with the back horizontal). However, a relatively new stance has been gaining in popularity since the mid-1970s. This is the semi-recumbent posture, in which the rider is seated on an office-like chair, adopting body angles similar to that of an automobile driver, with the pedals located in front of the cyclist. This study tested the above-mentioned positions, with the addition of a fully supine recumbent posture, at a moderate commuting workload (90 watts), pedaled at 60 revolutions per minute frequency. Among male volunteers, 8 healthy subjects performed a sequence of 4 posture trials on a mechanical ergometer, each lasting for 8 minutes with intermittent rest period averaging 27 minutes. Several physiological responses were measured during ...
Posture-responsive therapy is delivered by the medical system based on posture state input from only one of multiple posture sensors at any given time. An example implantable medical system includes a first posture sensor and a second sensor. A processor controls therapy delivery to the patient based on at least one of a patient posture state or a patient activity level determined based on input from only one of the first or second posture sensors. In some examples, one of multiple posture sensors of an implantable posture-responsive medical system is used to automatically reorient another posture sensor (of the system), which has become disoriented. The disoriented posture sensor may be automatically reoriented for one or more posture states at a time.

Posture is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting or lying down. Good posture involves training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments during movement or weight-bearing activities. Maintaining good posture involves training your body to move and function where the least strain is placed on the body. Good posture improves the physiologic function of your body, while improving your appearance.. To maintain proper posture, you need to have adequate muscle flexibility and strength, normal joint motion in the spine and other body regions, as well as efficient postural muscles that are balanced on both sides of the spine. In addition, you must recognize your postural habits at home and in the workplace and work to correct them, if necessary. Your posture has a positive or negative influence on the daily activities that you do.. Good posture demonstrates confidence, ...

The Bureau of Mines performed a pilot study examining the effects of posture on back strength and Maximum Acceptable Weight of Lift (MAWL) on six healthy male subjects (M = 32 years + 4 SD). Six back strength measurements (3 static and 3 dynamic) were made while the subjects were kneeling and standing. In addition, these subjects (who were unaccustomed to lifting in these postures) volunteered to participate in a study of psychophysically determined MAWL in both postures. Results of the back strength tests showed a significantly lower peak torque per body weight output in kneeling versus standing back strength measurements for five out of six test comparisons (p , .05). Subjective estimates of lifting capacity in the kneeling posture were significantly lower than those for the stooped posture (p , .05). The results of back strength and lifting capacity in these two postures provide useful information to consider in determining the physiological and psychophysical stresses imposed by these work ...
I wanted to share my experience with posture and what I have found to work best for myself, my therapy patients, and fitness clients. Ive worked in the fitness and rehab industry for six years and have been obsessed with the concept of posture since I started exercising 10 years ago.. Ive performed every scapular retraction, chin tuck, TA pull in you can think of, but nothing ever really stuck for me. It wasnt until the past two years I really started making a difference in my posture. Below, Ive overviewed some educational pieces as well as three exercises that made the biggest impact on my posture.. TLDR;. Posture can be defined as the positions we attempt to get into and out of via movement. It only becomes bad posture when we get stuck in one of these positions. The best way to get unstuck or change your posture is to influence the nervous system via breathing and neuromuscular positioning activities.. Many people associate the word posture with how one stands or sits. In western ...
Average human head weight is around 4.5~5.4kg. Forward transition of head will lead to increase the head weight upto 12~18kg. This means people with forward head posture will use double or triple amount of muscles to support their head throughout the day. No wonder neck and shoulders become stiff and heavy. Improving posture is not that simple. It is misconception that poor posture is due to lack of attention in posture. Posture is a process that operated by reflex. Which means posture will be made throughout the day without realising it. Good example is breathing. People breath approximately 17,000 to 30,000 times per day. Never aware of it. Breathing can be controlled such as slow, fast or stopped. People attempt to maintain good posture intentionally for the whole day will be equal to I am going to breath 25,000 times today. In the next months article, I will write about how to avoid poor posture from happening.. ​. by Dr Jarod Kim. Chiropractor. ​. The Millwater Mag - 2018 August ...

Good posture takes conscious effort. The first step is awareness. Observe your clients posture in casual standing and sitting positions and in movement. (Clients should be unaware that you are assessing them, so you can get a true picture of their habitual posture.). Once youve assessed your clients posture, help them understand how postural habits are the foundation to developing a fit body that functions at its best. Make sure to teach the neutral spine position. After years of poor posture, the neutral position will feel awkward to clients at first. But after consistent practice this posture will begin to feel more natural. Begin each training session with postural awareness. Give frequent reminders as you cue activation of the deep spinal support muscles, especially during cardiovascular and muscle conditioning. Remind clients that posture is important in side-lying, seated, prone, supine and hip-hinged positions as well as in the standing position. Modify exercises that do not allow ...
What is the ideal human upright posture? Where did it come from, how did it develop, what is its significance, how is it measured? What are the cause and effect of malposture? Much has been published on the role of posture in physical as well as mental and emotional states of the individual. This study was undertaken to investigate these issues, while at the same time aiming to find the position and role of posture in the physical and psychological context of human life. The first aspect of posture investigated was its definition. What constitutes good posture is still a debated issue. The conclusion drawn was that good posture represents the state of balance in an individual at rest and during motion. Ideally this state should be achieved with all the body parts aligned on top of each other requiring minimal effort and energy expenditure. The evolutionary origin of the upright posture in man was traced in order to come to a clearer understanding of the anatomical, biomechanical and ...
By Genevieve Cunningham. You may not give a lot of conscious thought to your posture. Most of us dont really think about our posture unless its exceptionally bad. But at the same time, most of us actually have pretty poor posture even if we dont realize it. Why does this matter? Poor posture is hard on the back, tough on your overall health, and can even damage your mental health and the way you feel about yourself. If youre ready to correct your bad posture, take a look at these tips for getting a handle on it.. Evaluate Your Current Posture. Youll need a mirror or video recorder of some sort so that you can get an objective view of your body. To evaluate your posture, first take a look at yourself. We rarely see ourselves from the outside looking in, so getting a glimpse of this view can be a wake-up call. Next, pay attention to how your body feels. Are your shoulders falling forward? Does it hurt to straighten up? These can all be signs that your body is fighting bad posture, and an ...
BACKGROUND:Malocclusion, body posture, and breathing pattern may be correlated, but this issue is still controversial. The aim of the study was to examine the relationship between the type of malocclusion, body posture, and nasopharyngeal obstruction in children aged 7-14 years. MATERIAL AND METHODS:The study group comprised 94 patients aged 7-14 years (mean±SD: 11.9±2.1 years); 44 (46.8%) males and 50 (53.2%) females. All patients passed an examination performed by the same orthodontist (study model and cephalometric radiograph analysis), orthopedic surgeon (body posture examined from the front, side, and back), and otorhinolaryngologist (anterior and posterior rhinoscopy and pharyngoscopy) in a blind manner. RESULTS:Postural disorders were observed in 72 (76.6%) patients. Hypertrophy of the adenoids was diagnosed in 54 (57.4%) patients, hypertrophy of the tonsils in 85 (90.3%), nasal septum deviation in 51 (54.3%), and allergic rhinitis in 19 (20.2%) patients. There was a statistically significant
Purpose: A simple single-unit activity monitor (Activ8), which is based on a tri-axial accelerometer, measures specific body postures and movements, and has potential for research and clinical practice to monitor and optimize physical behavior of people with chronic conditions. However, the validity of the Activ8 in people with lower-limb amputation is unknown. Studying validity in this specific group is needed because they often have postures and movements that differ from the normal population, and which might affect validity. Therefore our study aimed to validate the Activ8 to measure body postures and movements in people with a lower-limb amputation. Methods: Thirty people with a unilateral lower-limb amputation and who are able to walk with a prosthesis completed two activity protocols in a simulated home setting: one with basic activities (only one posture or movement) and one with functional activities from daily living. Outcomes of the Activ8 (used in thigh-fixed position and pocket ...
Falls resulting in significant injury are a major health issue for older adults. Instability that results in a fall is the leading cause of injury-related death and of nonfatal injury in the United States.1-3 The probability that an adult will experience a fall increases with age and with age-related disease. It has been reported that individuals with diabetes mellitus experience subjective feelings of instability, and the risk of falling is increased by a factor of 15 in patients with diabetic neuropathy compared with healthy individuals.4,5 The dynamic process of maintaining an upright posture is vital to the health and independent functioning of the aging population. However, the mechanisms that are necessary for the maintenance of upright posture are exactly the ones impacted by the presence of peripheral neuropathy. ...

Standing, also referred to as orthostasis, is a human position in which the body is held in an upright (orthostatic) position and supported only by the feet. Although seemingly static, the body rocks slightly back and forth from the ankle in the sagittal plane. The sagittal plane bisects the body into right and left sides. The sway of quiet standing is often likened to the motion of an inverted pendulum.[1] Standing at attention is a military standing posture, as is stand at ease, but these terms are also used in military-style organisations and in some professions which involve standing, such as modeling. At ease refers to the classic military position of standing with legs slightly apart, not in as formal or regimented a pose as standing at attention. In modeling, model at ease refers to the model standing with one leg straight, with the majority of the weight on it, and the other leg tucked over and slightly around. ...

Upright posture and mobility were associated with different cognitive processes, showing better memory of older adults with proper posture. This important study provides evidence for a link between postural alignment and cognitive functioning in healthy older adults.. In this research study the authors define the terms Mobility and Posture and discuss how a decline of mobility and posture affects aging adults. They state that a decline in mobility with aging is associated with a decline in overall quality of life. Posture refers to the way the muscles and skeletal bones are coordinated to maintain an upright orientation against gravity. Older adults have a tendency to carry their heads and necks forward relative to their torsos. This was associated with decreased cognitive function.. ...

Have you ever glanced at your reflection in a storefront window or mirror as you walked by and noticed your posture? Scary, isnt it? We all know that we should stand up straight, but we soon forget when as we fall back into our daily routine.. Poor posture is often due to years of standing slouched, a bad habit that usually starts at a young age. Just look around the next time youre in an airport or at a shopping mall and notice how many people have poor posture. In fact, a persons posture may reflect their present attitude and reveal if theyre happy, sad, or depressed. Poor posture may be related to self-consciousness, especially during adolescence. It may also have a genetic component, as we frequently see a trait throughout family members with similar postural tendencies.. The most common postural fault associated with headaches is the forward-based head and shoulders. From the side, it appears that the head is significantly forward relative to the shoulders, the upper back is rounded ...

Orthostatic hypertension, or postural hypertension, is a medical condition consisting of a sudden and abrupt increase in blood pressure when a person stands up. Orthostatic hypertension is diagnosed by a rise in systolic blood pressure of 20 mmHg or more when standing. Orthostatic diastolic hypertension is a condition in which the diastolic raises to 98 mmHg or over in response to standing; however, this definition currently lacks clear medical consensus and is thus subject to change. Orthostatic hypertension involving the systolic is known as systolic orthostatic hypertension. If affecting an individuals ability to remain upright, orthostatic hypertension is viewed as a form of orthostatic intolerance. The bodys inability to regulate the blood pressure can be a type of dysautonomia. Baroreflex and autonomic pathways normally ensure that blood pressure is maintained despite various stimuli including postural change. The precise mechanism of orthostatic hypertension remains unclear, but it is ...

Posture and Your Health. One other disturbing thing about posture brace is that it can have some genuine effects on your wellbeing. You have to comprehend that one of the central reasons why numerous Americans have awful wellbeing is because of poor posture. Basic, posture influences your spinal line, through which all the nerves go starting from the brain to your appendages, organs, and so forth. In the event that your back is out of posture, a portion of these nerves can get squeezed, causing issues with your heart, breathing, or development while strolling or getting things done with your hands. Therefore, great posture should be truly taken a gander at. At times, if your posture is in poor condition, you should consider getting a back brace to improve your posture while sitting or while standing, contingent upon the seriousness of your posture issues..

Background: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, age, sex distribution and blood pressure (BP) pattern of patients with orthostatic hypertension in a cohort of hypertensives. Method: A total of 179 patients on follow-up treatment in a hypertension clinic were assessed for age, sex and BP in the seated position, and after two minutes in the erect position, on three consecutive visits. Orthostatic hypertension was defined as an increase in systolic blood pressure (SBP) of ≥ 20 mmHg on more than one occasion in the erect position. Orthostatic hypotension was defined as a decrease in BP on more than one occasion, between the seated and erect SBP, of ≥ 20 mmHg. The mean ages of the participants with and without orthostatic hypertension were compared by t-test for any significant difference. The means of the seated SBP of participants with and without orthostatic hypertension were also compared with the t-test. The effect of gender on orthostatic hypertension was tested with a chi

Purpose: We validate a video-based method of head posture measurement. Methods: The Cambridge Face Tracker uses neural networks (constrained local neural fields) to recognize facial features in video. The relative position of these facial features is used to calculate head posture. First, we assess the accuracy of this approach against videos in three research databases where each frame is tagged with a precisely measured head posture. Second, we compare our method to a commercially available mechanical device, the Cervical Range of Motion device: four subjects each adopted 43 distinct head postures that were measured using both methods. Results: The Cambridge Face Tracker achieved confident facial recognition in 92% of the approximately 38,000 frames of video from the three databases. The respective mean error in absolute head posture was 3.34°, 3.86°, and 2.81°, with a median error of 1.97°, 2.16°, and 1.96°. The accuracy decreased with more extreme head posture. Comparing The Cambridge ...

The Sitting Balance Scale is comparable to the Trunk Impairment Scale for measuring sitting balance in older adults who are nonambulatory or have limited mobility, say authors of an article published in Clinical Rehabilitation. The authors conducted this prospective study in acute care, inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing facility, and home health settings. Participants included 98 patients, with a mean age of 80.5 (SD 7.9) years, who received physical therapy (n = 20 acute care, n = 18 inpatient rehabilitation, n = 30 skilled nursing facility, n = 30 home setting). Nineteen patients were nonambulatory, and 79 had limited functional mobility with Timed Up and Go scores ≥20 seconds. The main measures were the Sitting Balance Scale, Trunk Impairment Scale, Timed Up and Go, length of stay, and setting-specific clinical measures of sitting balance (OASIS-C M1850; MDS G-3b).. A moderate association between ambulatory status and sitting balance measures was found (Sitting Balance Scale r = ...

Z Dujic, D Bakovic, I Marinovic-Terzic, et al Objective: To evaluate the cardiopulmonary effects of open sea scuba air diving to 39 m (30 minutes bottom time) with standard decompression. To account for possible gravity dependent effects of venous gas bubbles, the variables were measured in different post-dive body postures and compared with the baseline values before the dive in the same posture.. Methods: Eight male divers conducted two similar dives on successive days. Their posture before and after the dive were either sitting or supine, in random order. The divers were evaluated before and 30, 60, and 90 minutes after the dive. Venous bubbles were detected by precordial Doppler after the dive in four divers in the supine posture and two divers in the sitting posture.. Results: Arterialised oxygen tension had decreased at all times after the dive (−11.3 mm Hg, p = 0.00006), due to decreased alveolar oxygen tension, irrespective of posture. Apart from an increase in the sitting posture 30 ...

A balanced posture is one in which your bones are stacked vertically with the support of your musculature to hold you in that optimal alignment. Often times, our habits from sitting, slumped over our desks or standing long hours working, can cause muscular imbalances. As a result, when you adjust your posture, your muscles are too weak or tight to support your efforts. Furthermore, posture isnt about bringing your shoulders back, sucking your gut in or standing up straighter. Theres more to it than that. Ive worked with hundreds of clients to help them find their optimal alignment in a way that brings them more ease and strength when sitting, standing, practicing yoga, running, lifting weights, etc.. Its why I came up with these 6 workshops called, The Building Blocks of Posture. In these 6 sessions you will learn how to build your balanced posture from your feet all the way up to your head. Once you gain an understanding of your anatomy and how your body was designed to be in alignment, ...

Building a physique thats muscular and chiseled is not just for aesthetically pleasing, it helps you obtain an optimal posture and body stability as a whole. When building the chest muscle with the right ways, you will also strengthen other muscles that assist the pectoralis major and minor muscles of the chest. When you strengthen those muscles along with the chest muscles, it naturally creates a stronger push-pull effect, and the body will maintain a good posture as a result. For people who are the skinner type, you may notice that sometimes its difficult to keep that good posture where you constantly have to remind yourself to lift your chest slightly and draw in your abdominal. Many back pain is actually caused by a bad posture where the back has to work extra to hold your upper body weight. The reason for that is not that you used to have the bad posture, but it is because you have a weaker push-pull force among the muscle groups. Once you strengthen those muscles, your posture will be ...

The dose and time-pattern of sitting has been suggested in public health research to be an important determinant of risk for developing a number of diseases, including cardiovascular disorders and diabetes. The aim of the present study was to assess the time-pattern of seated and standing/walking postures amongst male and female call centre operators, on the basis of whole-shift posture recordings, analysed and described by a number of novel variables describing posture variation. Seated vs. standing/walking was recorded using dichotomous inclinometers throughout an entire work shift for 43 male and 97 female call centre operators at 16 call centres. Data were analysed using an extensive set of variables describing occurrence of and switches between seated and standing/walking, posture similarity across the day, and compliance with standard recommendations for computer work. The majority of the operators, both male and female, spent more than 80% of the shift in a seated posture with an average of 10.4
Were you ever told by your mother as a child to sit up straight? While it may have driven you crazy when you were young, your mother knew what she was talking about. Posture affects you negatively (if you have poor posture) or positively (if you listened to your mom and corrected it!) The next time you slouch over at your desk while reading an email, you may want to think twice. Science shows us that posture contributes to your overall outcome for every area of your life. Heres what you need to know about your postures relationship with health, relationships and even your confidence (and some tips to make it even better!)

Results: Mean muscle activation increased significantly with both increasing +Gz and non-neutral head postures. Check-6 at +5 Gz (mean activation of all muscles = 51% MVIC) elicited significantly greater muscle activation in most muscles when compared with Neutral, Extension, and Turn head postures. High levels of muscle co-contraction were evident in high acceleration and non-neutral head postures. Head kinematics showed Check-6 was closest to end-range in any movement plane (86% ROM in rotation) and produced the greatest magnitude of rotation in other planes. Turn and Extension showed a large magnitude of rotation with reference to end-range in the primary plane of motion but displayed smaller rotations in other planes ...

Posture has an effect on gastric emptying. In this study, we investigated whether posture influences the delay in gastric emptying induced by opioid analgesics. Ten healthy male subjects underwent 4 gastric emptying studies with the acetaminophen method. On two occasions the subjects were given a continuous infusion of remifentanil (0.2 mug . kg(-1) . min(-1)) while lying either on the right lateral side in a 20degrees head-up position or on the left lateral side in a 20degrees head-down position. On two other occasions no infusion was given, and the subjects were studied lying in the two positions. When remifentanil was given, there were no significant differences between the two postures in maximal acetaminophen concentration (right side, 34 mumol . L-1, versus left side, 16 mumol . L-1), time taken to reach the maximal concentration (94 versus 109 min), or area under the serum acetaminophen concentration time curve from 0 to 60 min (962 versus 197 min . mumol - L-1). In the control situation, ...
Many common ailments and discomforts can be traced to poor posture. If the spine is not properly aligned or if there is tightness or stiffness in the back, the result is often an imbalance in the body. When this imbalance becomes chronic many kinds of disorders arise in the organs, glands and nervous system. Performing the tada-asana allows one to observe ones posture closely and clearly recognize those problems which get masked or ignored by day-to-day activities. As the posture is held and the breath, mind and body is quieted various effects will surface to indicate difficulties with the spine. Favoring one foot over the other, shifting back and forth, drooped shoulders, tightness in the neck and upper or lower back, and various other physiological disturbances may appear indicating the need for further yoga practice. The proper execution and continual practice of the tada-asana along with other postures helps to re-train the body to stand correctly and reverse the negative effects of poor ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the head position on passive drag with a towing-line experiment in a swimming pool. The tests were performed on ten male swimmers with regional level swimming skills and at least 10 years of competitive swimming experience. They were towed underwater (at a depth of 60 cm) at three speeds (1.5, 1.7 and 1.9 m/s) and in two body positions (arms above the swimmers head and arms alongside the body). These two body positions were repeated while the swimmers head was positioned in three different ways: head-up, head-middle and head-down in relation to the bodys horizontal alignment. The results showed a reduction of 4-5.2% in the average passive drag at all speeds when the head was down or aligned to the swimmers arms alongside the body, in comparison to the head-up position. A major significant decrease of 10.4-10.9% (p , 0.05) was shown when the head was down or aligned at the swimmers arms above the swimmers head. The passive drag tended ...

Equally, neck pain can be of slow or insidious onset. If you drive or work on computers for long periods of time, you may have adopted the physical postures that lead to neck pain. Sometimes poor neck posture can irritate a nerve root and cause arm pain. We can give you advice about your head position, basic ergonomic advice regarding chair height and for computer users; monitor, mouse and telephone position.

Postural control is a complex motor skill with two main functional goals; namely, postural orientation and postural equilibrium. Postural orientation involves active alignment of the body as it relates to changes in gravity, support surfaces, visual cues and internal resources. Sensory information from somatosensory, vestibular and visual systems are integrated and weighed depending on the goals of the movement task and the environmental context. Postural equilibrium involves the coordination of movement strategies (e.g., ankle, hip and stepping strategy) to stabilize the center of body mass during self-initiated or externally triggered disturbances of stability. Important resources required for postural stability and orientation include biomechanical constraints, movement strategies, sensory strategies, orientation in space, control of dynamics and cognitive processing. The most important biomechanical constraints on balance are the size and quality of the base of support and controlling the ...
The decrease in postural control and muscle strength in lower limbs have been identified as major risk factors for falls in older people. Exercises have proven effective in decreasing risk factors in healthy elderly, but little is known about the effects of interventions with exercise in the elderly with osteoporosis.. Objective: To compare the efficacy of two exercise programs - the first consisting of balance training and muscle strength and the second consisting of balance training and muscle stretching exercises - to improve postural control in elderly women with osteoporosis.. Methods: Fifty elderly aged 65 or older, with a diagnosis of osteoporosis, were randomized into 3 groups: Strength Group (n = 17) performed balance training with muscle strengthening; Stretching Group (n = 17) performed balance training with stretching; and Control Group (n =16) did not do activity. The groups trained for 8 weeks, with sessions of about 60 minutes, twice a week. Postural control was evaluated by ...

The overwhelming majority genuinely want people to get better.. Theres also the business side, of course, and Im just like you: I need new patients and I want them to stick around for the care and treatment they need. Posture analysis, movement analysis and anti-aging strategies are methods I focus on in my rehab practice to create long-term relationships. As we walk this pathway and journey of chiropractic - engaging the study of posture - we cross the broad terrain of static posture into functional movements. Using functional movement analysis, I see more clearly who patients are and how their individual range of flexibility and strength within a single body segment is connected to the greater whole.. Functional Movement Analysis. In case you are not aware, we have a compass in the functional movement analysis practice, a guidance system to identify, rate and rank movement limitations and asymmetries. It is called the Functional Movement Screen (FMS). [Dr. Robert George reviewed the FMS in ...
Postural development progresses through a series of stages (growth spurts, development of balance and coordination, postural stability) which occur when children are at school age. The reduction in the level of physical activity, increased body weight, overloaded school bags, asymmetry of the backpack straps, the method of putting on and taking off the backpacks and increased usage of electronic devices have negative side effects such as bad body posture habits. A prospective cohort study in the group of 155 pupils at early school age 7-9 years old has been conducted. Examinations have been conducted twice: first, at the beginning of the school year (initial examination) and second - after 10-11 months (final examination). Age, gender, BMI, weight of school bag carried to school and the length of straps have been assessed.
