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 ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Statistical inference on patch-specific survival and movement rates from marked animals. AU - Conroy, Michael J.. AU - Anderson, Jon E.. AU - Rathbun, Stephen L.. AU - Krementz, David G.. PY - 1996/6. Y1 - 1996/6. N2 - Empirical estimates of patch-specific survival and movement rates are needed to parametrize spatially explicit population models, and for inference on the effects of habitat quality and fragmentation on populations. Data from radio-marked animals, in which both the fates and habitat locations of animals are known over time, can be used in conjunction with continuous-time proportional hazards models to obtain inferences on survival rates. Discrete-time conditional logistic models may provide inference on both survival and movement rates. We use Monte Carlo simulation to investigate accuracy of estimates of survival from both approaches, and movement rates from conditional logistic regression, for two habitats. Bias was low (relative bias , 0.04) and interval ...
How can complex movements that take hundreds of milliseconds be generated by stereotypical neural microcircuits consisting of spiking neurons with a much faster dynamics? We show that linear readouts from generic neural microcircuit models can be trained to generate basic arm movements. Such movement generation is independent of the arm model used and the type of feedback that the circuit receives. We demonstrate this by considering two different models of a two-jointed arm, a standard model from robotics and a standard model from biology, that each generates different kinds of feedback. Feedback that arrives with biologically realistic delays of 50 to 280 ms turns out to give rise to the best performance. If a feedback with such desirable delay is not available, the neural microcircuit model also achieves good performance if it uses internally generated estimates of such feedback. Existing methods for movement generation in robotics that take the particular dynamics of sensors and actuators ...
Studies of stroke patients undergoing robot-assisted rehabilitation have revealed various kinematic parameters describing movement quality of the upper limb. However, due to the different level of stroke impairment and different assessment criteria and interventions, the evaluation of the effectiveness of rehabilitation program is undermined. This paper presents a systematic review of kinematic assessments of movement quality of the upper limb and identifies the suitable parameters describing impairments in stroke patients. A total of 41 different clinical and pilot studies on different phases of stroke recovery utilizing kinematic parameters are evaluated. Kinematic parameters describing movement accuracy are mostly reported for chronic patients with statistically significant outcomes and correlate strongly with clinical assessments. Meanwhile, parameters describing feed-forward sensorimotor control are the most frequently reported in studies on sub-acute patients with significant outcomes albeit
In control, stability captures the reproducibility of motions and the robustness to environmental and internal perturbations. This paper examines how stability can be evaluated in human movements, and possible mechanisms by which humans ensure stability. First, a measure of stability is introduced, which is simple to apply to human movements and corresponds to Lyapunov exponents. Its application to real data shows that it is able to distinguish effectively between stable and unstable dynamics. A computational model is then used to investigate stability in human arm movements, which takes into account motor output variability and computes the force to perform a task according to an inverse dynamics model. Simulation results suggest that even a large time delay does not affect movement stability as long as the reflex feedback is small relative to muscle elasticity. Simulations are also used to demonstrate that existing learning schemes, using a monotonic antisymmetric update law, cannot compensate ...
Neurophysiology and neuroimaging evidence shows that the brain represents multiple environmental and body-related features to compute transformations from sensory input to motor output. However, it is unclear how these features interact during goal-directed movement. To investigate this issue, we examined the representations of sensory and motor features of human hand movements within the left-hemisphere motor network. In a rapid event-related fMRI design, we measured cortical activity as participants performed right-handed movements at the wrist, with either of two postures and two amplitudes, to move a cursor to targets at different locations. Using a multivoxel analysis technique with rigorous generalization tests, we reliably distinguished representations of task-related features (primarily target location, movement direction, and posture) in multiple regions. In particular, we identified an interaction between target location and movement direction in the superior parietal lobule, which may ...
RATIONALE: Functional strength training in addition to conventional physical therapy could enhance upper limb recovery early after stroke more than movement performance therapy plus conventional physical therapy. AIMS: To determine (a) the relative clinical efficacy of conventional physical therapy combined with functional strength training and conventional physical therapy combined with movement performance therapy for upper limb recovery; (b) the neural correlates of response to conventional physical therapy combined with functional strength training and conventional physical therapy combined with movement performance therapy; (c) whether any one or combination of baseline measures predict motor improvement in response to conventional physical therapy combined with functional strength training or conventional physical therapy combined with movement performance therapy. DESIGN: Randomized, controlled, observer-blind trial. STUDY: The sample will consist of 288 participants with upper limb paresis
The aim of the research was to determine how the reaction time and the movement speed depend on the complexity of the task. The research was carried out in the Laboratory of Human Motor Control at the Lithuanian Academy of Physical Education (LAPE) applying the analyzer of dynamic parameters of human leg and arm movement (DPA-1; Patent No. 5251; 2005 08 25), which is used for the qualitative estimation of the dynamic parameters of one arm and leg target movement, two arms and legs coordinated and independent target movements, when the resistance power and target are coded with different programmable parameters. We registered the reaction time (RT) and the movement speed (Vmax) performing simple tasks of reaction and speed and a complicated task of accuracy. Research results indicated that performing a complicated task the reaction is slower, and the maximal movement speed is lower than performing a simple task. However, it does not mean that movement speed will be higher when the reaction is ...
Kinematic motor variability is extensively studied in occupational, clinical and sports biomechanics, but the consistency of most motor variability metrics have never been reported. In this study, fourteen subjects performed a repetitive pipetting task on three separate days. Movements of hand, arm and pipette tip were recorded in 3D and used to compute shoulder elevation, elbow flexion and shoulder-arm coordination angles, as well as pipette-tip endpoint precision. Cycle-to-cycle motor variability was quantified using linear dispersion measures of standard kinematics properties such as peak velocity, range of motion, and inter-segmental relative phase. Between- and within-subject consistencies of these variability metrics were quantified by variance components estimated using a nested random effects model. For most metrics, the variance between subjects was larger than that between days and cycles. Entering the variance components in statistical power equations showed that for most metrics, a ...
Early detection of movement intention could possibly minimize the delays in the activation of neuroprosthetic devices. As yet, single trial analysis using non-invasive approaches for understanding such movement preparation remains a challenging task. We studied the feasibility of predicting movement directions in self-paced upper limb center-out reaching tasks, i.e., spontaneous movements executed without an external cue that can better reflect natural motor behavior in humans. We reported results of non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) recorded from mild stroke patients and able-bodied participants. Previous studies have shown that low frequency EEG oscillations are modulated by the intent to move and therefore, can be decoded prior to the movement execution. Motivated by these results, we investigated whether slow cortical potentials (SCPs) preceding movement onset can be used to classify reaching directions and evaluated the performance using 5-fold cross-validation. For able-bodied ...

Taking in sufficient quantities of nutrients is vital for all living beings and in doing so, individuals interact with the local resource environment. Here, we focus explicitly on the interactions between feeding individuals and the resource landscape. In particular, we are interested in the emergent movement dynamics resulting from these interactions. We present an individual-based simulation model for the movement of populations in a resource landscape that allows us to vary the strength of the interactions mentioned above. The key assumption and novelty of our model is that individuals can cause the release of additional nutrients, as well as consuming them. Our model produces clear predictions. For example, we expect more tortuous individual movement paths and higher levels of aggregation in populations occupying homogeneous environments where individual movement makes more nutrients available. We also show how observed movement dynamics could change when local nutrient sources are depleted or when

We recorded from dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) of two monkeys required to reach quickly a target randomly appearing in one of two opposite peripheral positions (movement conditions) after a go-signal (no-stop trials), but to withhold the movement whenever an intervening stop-signal was shown after a random delay (stop trials). We selected recordings showing a significant increase, in at least one movement condition, of MUA activity during no-stop reaction time (the epoch between the go signal and the movement onset). Sixty-one percent (68/112) of these recordings are characterized by a sharp upward transition (SUT) of the MUA signal, the time of which is strongly correlated with the movement onset at the single trial level. On average, upward transitions precede the movement onset by 110 ms and are completed in less than 100 ms.. The predictive value of the SUT time of occurrence is strengthened by the behavioral outcome of the stop trials. In wrong stop trials, when the monkeys fail to cancel ...

TY - GEN. T1 - Classification of stand-to-sit and sit-to-stand movement from low frequency EEG with locality preserving dimensionality reduction. AU - Bulea, Thomas C.. AU - Prasad, Saurabh. AU - Kilicarslan, Atilla. AU - Contreras-Vidal, Jose L.. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - Recent studies have demonstrated decoding of lower extremity limb kinematics from noninvasive electroencephalography (EEG), showing feasibility for development of an EEG-based brain-machine interface (BMI) to restore mobility following paralysis. Here, we present a new technique that preserves the statistical richness of EEG data to classify movement state from time-embedded low frequency EEG signals. We tested this new classifier, using cross-validation procedures, during sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit activity in 10 subjects and found decoding accuracy of greater than 95% on average. These results suggest that this classification technique could be used in a BMI system that, when combined with a robotic exoskeleton, can ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - EMG activity and kinematics of human cycling movements at different constant velocities. AU - Suzuki, Shuji. AU - Watanabe, Shiroh. AU - Homma, Saburo. PY - 1982/5/27. Y1 - 1982/5/27. N2 - Surface electromyographic (EMG) activity was recorded from the rectus femoris, vastus medialis, biceps femoris, gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior in the human lower extremity while subjects performed bicycling movements over a range of constant pedalling velocities. Kinematics of knee and hip cyclical movements were analyzed from 16 mm film. The reciprocal pattern of activation in agonist and antagonist muscles and timing of EMG initiation relative to knee joint were studied. Reciprocal activation of rectus femoris and biceps femoris muscles was generally observed to occur during the mid-extension or mid-flexion phase of knee movements. This timing of activation pattern coincided well the period of peak angular velocity and zero angular acceleration. As pedalling speeds approached maximum, ...
Yes, we work with the Adapt Functional Movement Center in Carlsbad, California who provides a host of virtual therapy options. For 1-on-1 sessions, their team uses a practice called Functional Movement Therapy, which is specifically designed to maintain nervous system activity in order to preserve and strengthen function. The team at Adapt uses the neurodevelopmental sequence in their Functional Movement Therapy, which is the normal movement progression that infants follow as they grow and develop the abilities to roll, crawl, stand, and walk. That same sequence provides direction in the rehabilitation field by giving the team a logical series of postures and movement strategies to follow in order to re-educate the nervous system. Adapt works heavily with MS patients as well as a host of other neurological and neurodegenerative conditions and offers programs onsite at their center in California, as well as virtually over Zoom. They also conduct a series of live classes and activities on a weekly ...
The natural movement and functional power of the ankle and foot during a step , while appearing fairly simple, are amazingly difficult to replicate with a prosthetic. Usually it requires a fast and fairly powerful motor to provide the forward push and then whip that foot up as we pull our leg forward. However, recent projects have managed to do some amazing jobs at achieving this difficult task. Belgiums Vrije Universiteit Brussel has released the video (below the break) of the AMP-Foot 2.0 that pulls this off very well.. ...
Biomechanical properties of cells play a very important role in regulating cells function. Experimental studies found that when Leukocytes move near the vessel wall, the phenomena such as rolling, jumping and adhesion will appear. Based on the non-linear fluid-structure interaction theory, leukocytes tiny jumping mechanism and rolling phenomenon were studied. The results were: 1) The choice of time step of leukocyte had a great influence on the movement of leukocyte. Instead of landing on the bottom of flow chamber, leukocyte jumped to a certain height and then moved periodically toward the bottom of the flow chamber again. Leukocyte had the biggest deformation when jumping; 2) Adhesion and rolling along the bottom of the flow chamber appeared in the process of moving forward, the scrolling speed was greater than that of pure rolling. Leukocytes movement in blood vessels was closely related with body physiological and pathological characteristics. The study of dynamic movement of leukocyte provided

One technique used in the process of preseason screening is the functional movement screen (FMS). Functional movement screening is an assessment used to evaluate movement patterns and asymmetries, which can provide insight into mechanical restrictions and potential risk for injury. Functional movement screening contains seven fundamental movement patterns that require a balance of both mobility and stability. These fundamental movement patterns provide an observable performance of basic locomotor, manipulative, and stabilizing movements. The tests place the individual athlete in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become clear if proper stability and mobility is not functioning correctly.[30] The seven fundamental movement patterns are a deep squat, hurdle step, in-line lunge, shoulder mobility, active straight-leg raise, trunk stability push-up, and rotary stability. For example, the deep squat is a test that challenges total body mechanics. It is used to gauge bilateral, ...
The relation between movement speed and accuracy is one of the most robust phenomena in human movement performance. The essence of the speed-accuracy relation is that with an increase in movement speed there is concomitant decrease in movement accuracy. Different descriptions and explanations of the speed-accuracy relation have been proposed for characterizing time matching and time minimization movement tasks. Nevertheless, these accounts have emphasized the spatial dimension of the phenomenon providing a limited assessment given that human movement takes place in both space and time. It follows that there is a potential for both spatial error and temporal error in motor task. Hancock and Newell (1985) proposed a space-time framework of the movement speed-accuracy relation that is based on the space-time principle that the spatial component of movement is always measured with respect to time and that the temporal component of movement is always measured with respect to space (Minkowski, 1908). ...

The first student movement arisen on November 3, 1929, developed into a nationwide anti-Japanese movement, and lasted about 5 months. Focusing on students, about 54,000 people engaged in this movement. It spread and affected the rally and protests abroad such as in Manchuria, Kando, Kirn, Shanghai, Beijing of China, Japan and USA. After this, the spirit of the student independence movement succeeded to the secret society movement, resistance movement about oppressive draft, the grain exploitation in 1940s, and the second student independence movement in May, 1943, etc. Like this, the Gwangju student independence movement was the opportunity which identified that the students was the inner circle members of the independence movement and the trigger of the national liberation enhancement in the stagnant atmosphere of labor/peasant movement at the end of the 1920s. For these reasons the Gwangju independence movement is evaluated one of the representative racial movements equivalent to the March 1st ...

Recent accounts of understanding goal-directed action underline the importance of a hierarchical predictive architecture. However, the neural implementation of such an architecture remains elusive. In the present study, we used functional neuroimaging to quantify brain activity associated with predicting physical movements, as they were modulated by conceptual-expectations regarding the purpose of the object involved in the action. Participants observed object-related actions preceded by a cue that generated both conceptual goal expectations and movement goal predictions. In 2 tasks, observers judged whether conceptual or movement goals matched or mismatched the cue. At the conceptual level, expected goals specifically recruited the posterior cingulate cortex, irrespectively of the task and the perceived movement goal. At the movement level, neural activation of the parieto-frontal circuit, including inferior frontal gyrus and the inferior parietal lobe, reflected unpredicted movement goals. Crucially,
The thesis collects five essays on how neurons in four motor areas of the frontal lobe process the movement dynamics. In the experiments described, monkeys executed visually instructed reaching movements while holding the handle of a robotic arm. Motors attached to the robot allowed turning on and off perturbing forces that deviated the hand of the monkeys. After some exposure, the monkeys adapted to the perturbation. The experiments were designed to dissociate the activity related to the desired kinematics from that related to the dynamics. Furthermore, the experiments dissociated the activity related to motor performance (desired kinematics and dynamics) from that related to motor learning (learning a new dynamics). The thesis describes the following results. 1. During motor execution, the movement dynamics is processed across multiple areas. Specifically, dynamics-related activity is found in all areas projecting to the spinal cord under study, namely the primary motor cortex (M1), ...
Where in the brain are our intentions formed and how do we become aware of these intentions? Desmurget et al. (p. 811; see the Perspective by Haggard) investigated the effect of direct cortical stimulation of parietal and premotor regions in patients undergoing brain surgery for tumor removal. Stimulation of the parietal lobe provoked the conscious experience of wanting to move the upper limb, lips, or tongue without any concomitant motor activity. When stimulation intensity was increased, patients believed that they had actually moved or talked, but again no muscle activity was detected. When, however, the premotor region of the frontal lobes was stimulated, real complex multijoint movements were induced. However, patients did not experience these movements as produced by a conscious internal act of will. Indeed, they were not even aware that they had moved. Increasing stimulation intensity increased the amplitude or complexity of the movement but never made it reach consciousness. ...

Tracking animal movements such as walking is an essential task for understanding how and why animals move in an environment and respond to external stimuli. Different methods that implemented image analysis and a data logger such as GPS have been used in laboratory experiments and in field studies, respectively. Recently, animal movement patterns without stimuli have attracted an increasing attention in search for common innate characteristics underlying all of their movements. However, it is difficult to track the movements in a vast and homogeneous environment without stimuli because of space constraints in laboratories or environmental heterogeneity in the field, hindering our understanding of inherent movement patterns. Here, we applied an omnidirectional treadmill mechanism, or a servosphere, as a tool for tracking two-dimensional movements of small animals that can provide both a homogenous environment and a virtual infinite space for walking. To validate the use of our tracking system for

TY - JOUR. T1 - Structure of joint variability in bimanual pointing tasks. AU - Domkin, Dmitry. AU - Laczko, Jozsef. AU - Jaric, Slobodan. AU - Johansson, Hakan. AU - Latash, Mark. PY - 2002/5/23. Y1 - 2002/5/23. N2 - Changes in the structure of motor variability during practicing a bimanual pointing task were investigated using the framework of the uncontrolled manifold (UCM) hypothesis. The subjects performed fast and accurate planar movements with both arms, one moving the pointer and the other moving the target. The UCM hypothesis predicts that joint kinematic variability will be structured to selectively stabilize important task variables. This prediction was tested with respect to selective stabilization of the trajectory of the endpoint of each arm (unimanual control hypotheses) and with respect to selective stabilization of the timecourse of the vectorial distance between the target and the pointer tip (bimanual control hypothesis). Components of joint position variance not affecting and ...
Higham and Russell argue that the geckos tail the faster movements are more interesting. They think that these flips are not controlled by a set of neurons in the spinal cord that out a rhythm. They marshal a few pieces of evidence for their hypothesis. First, they note that the flips only occur for a couple of minutes after the tails been removed, whereas the slow movements continue for up to half an hour. Second, the flips are extremely variable compared to the slow movements, even after you take into account the fact that theyre shorter. Third, when a flip occurs, the muscles along the tail are active simultaneously, compared to the slow movements, where the muscles along the tail are activated one after another ...

This work presents a control and learning architecture for humanoid robots designed for acquiring movement skills in the context of imitation learning. Multiple levels of movement abstraction occur across the hierarchical structure of the architecture, finally leading to the representation of movement sequences within a probabilistic framework. As its substrate, the framework uses the notion of visuo-motor primitives, modules capable of recognizing as well as executing similar movements. This notion is heavily motivated by the neuroscience evidence for motor primitives and mirror neurons. Experimental results from an implementation of the architecture are presented involving learning and representation of demonstrated movement sequences from synthetic as well as real human movement data. ...

The present invention is directed towards a method and system of controlling movement of a body coupled to an actuation system that features translating movement of the body in a plane extending by imparting angular motion in the actuation system with respect to two spaced-apart axes. Specifically, rotational motion is generated in two spaced-apart planes, one of which extends parallel to the plane in which the body translates. This facilitates proper orientation of the body with respect to a surface spaced-apart therefrom.
Motor extinction refers to a deficit of motor production on the side opposite a brain lesion that either only becomes apparent or disproportionately worsens during bilateral motor activity. It may arise due either to a contralesional deficit in setting the motor activation level (an intentional deficit) or a deficit in contralesional awareness of the sensory consequences of movement (an attentional deficit). In this study, we investigate the nature of motor extinction in a patient (LR) with a right fronto-temporal lesion through the kinematic analysis of unimanual and bimanual circle-drawing movements. While the ipsi- and contralesional limbs performed comparably for unimanual movements, the contralesional limb demonstrated marked bradykinesia and hypometria during bimanual movements. Furthermore, these deficits were not overcome when visual feedback of the contralesional limb was provided (Experiment 1). However, when performing bimanual movements in the presence of a visual template (Experiment 2), LR
Q: How does MovNat training prepare me for Combatives?. Generally speaking, good movers make great fighters. Whereas movement abilities are not the only aspect that matters in your ability to defend yourself - situational awareness and raw aggressiveness are actually more important - a better mover learns faster, moves faster, more accurately, more technically, more adaptively. The mental aspect of MovNat practice also supports alertness and responsiveness which are mental qualities essential to defending oneself. A MovNatter is more mindful, knows how to breathe and move in so many diverse ways. Thats definitely a great start and advantage.. Q: How strong do I need to be? How do I need to train ahead of time to get the most out of it?. The short answer is that you dont need any training or to have achieved a certain fitness level to participate in a MovNat Combatives event. One of the reasons for this is because a lot of the strength you need in self-defense is mental. Of course, physical ...

Movement of the bodys skeleton is made possible by a number of body parts working together including the joints. A hinge joint at the elbow allows the arm to bend and extend. The condylar joint at the knee gives similar movement plus some rotation. Mobile ellipsoid joints between the fingers and palm of the hand allow circular movements but no rotation. Ball-and-socket joints, like the one at the shoulder, give maximum freedom of movement. At the other extreme, plane joints between the toe bones permit only a small degree of gliding movement and the pivot joint between the two cervical vertebrae-the atlas and the axis-merely provides rotation of the head. The saddle joint at the ankle is almost as mobile as the shoulder joint, but rotation is far more limited ...
As a result, the aim of the present study was to use an EEG experiment to evaluate the EEG ERD responses in motor-related brain locations induced by the distinct PI4KIIIbeta-IN-9 movement conditions.In addition to conducting an EEG experiment with a number of motion circumstances, we also employed unbiased element investigation to determine the widespread neural substrates activated by the performance of the 3 movement conditions. In the past, ICA has been utilized to figure out the EEG pursuits that happen in a provided neural substrates when diverse jobs are executed. In principle, ICA can linearly independent unbiased neural routines from muscle mass and eye artifacts, even when these pursuits and artifacts are obtained jointly in the type of multi-channel EEG info. These kinds of ICA decomposition reveals both the temporal exercise and corresponding certain topography of the impartial neural action, indicating its spatial designs on the scalp and around reflecting where in the brain the ...
