*  A System for Three-Dimensional Visualization of Human Jaw Motion in Speech | Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research ...
With the development of precise three-dimensional motion measurement systems and powerful computers for three-dimensional graphical visualization, it is possible to record and fully reconstruct human jaw motion. In this paper, we describe a visualization system for displaying three-dimensional jaw movements in speech. The system is designed to take as input jaw motion data obtained from one or multi-dimensional recording systems. In the present application, kinematic records of jaw motion were recorded using an optoelectronic measurement system (Optotrak). The corresponding speech signal was recorded using an analog input channel. The three orientation angles and three positions that describe the motion of the jaw as a rigid skeletal structure were derived from the empirical measurements. These six kinematic variables, which in mechanical terms account fully for jaw motion kinematics, act as inputs that ...
*  Jaw wiring - Wikipedia
Jaw wiring is a medical procedure to keep the jaw closed for a period of time. Originally, it was used as the mandibular equivalent of a cast, to fix the jaw in place while a fracture healed. Today, jaws may also be wired for weight-loss purposes, to prevent the ingestion of solid food. Jaw wiring is performed by attaching orthodontic brackets to the teeth, and wrapping pliable wire either around or through the brackets. The wiring may be configured to place the patient's lower jaw in a semi-closed resting position. This permits a moderate amount of jaw movement and relatively clear speech, but inhibits the ingestion of solid foods, forcing patients to adhere to a liquid diet. The type of jaw wiring used in patients with mandibular fractures, or those who need orthognathic surgery to correct deformed jaws, is known as inter-maxillary fixation (IMF) or ...
*  Australian-first for reconstructive surgery uses a 3D printed jaw implant - Healthcanal.com : Healthcanal.com
Mr Dimitroulis said surgery is at the cross-roads of an exciting era, where an increased use of 3D technology will see customised medical devices become an integral part of healthcare in the 21st Century.. "Many people suffer from jaw joint disorders such as painful clicking and jaw locking, with thousands undergoing surgery each year to treat advanced arthritic and other degenerative joint conditions," he said.. Patient Richard Stratton was born with condylar aplasia - missing a jaw joint called temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that resulted in a lack of growth in the left side of his face and a noticeably skewed lower jaw. The condition also affected jaw motion, greatly affecting his chewing capacity and facial expression.. In early May, Mr Dimitroulis led the surgical team who reconstructed the missing jaw with a custom-made jaw joint replacement that was the result of collaboration between ...
*  Patent US6983559 - Fish jaw gripper to facilitate hook removal - Google Patents
A gripper to hold a fish upright during hook removal has a pliers-like body. This body includes a first member having an outer handle portion joined to an upper jaw portion and a second member having an inner handle portion joined to a lower jaw portion. The lower jaw portion is pivotally carried in an opening between sidewalls of the upper jaw portion. Bottom edges of outer segments of the upper jaw portion sidewalls have tooth-like abrasions. These abrasions mate with like abrasions on a top wall of a swivel element pivotally attached to the lower jaw portion. When the handle portions of the gripper are squeezed togther so that the jaw and swivel element abrasions compressively engage a lower jaw of a fish, downward movement of the swivel element is inhibited by a locking action between complementarily formed offsets on a bottom surface of the swivel element top wall and ...
*  heart disease symptoms and problem information: Jaw Pain and Heart Attacks and Heart Disease Caused by Lack of Sleep
Heart pain is often radiated to teeth and jaw. It is very common to have jaw pain before or during a heart attack. It is simply not possible to emphasize on the symptoms of heart attack as different people experience different complications during a heart attack. Chest pain is the most common sign of having a heart attack, but there could be many other relevant causes of the condition.. Cardiac pain usually involves the jaw, arms, neck and back. The pain is very strong and severe. However, the jaw pain has nothing to with dental problems, and it usually comes and goes.. It is the heart pain that affects the teeth and jaw line. Any problems related to the heart can affect both the upper and lower jaw. It is very difficult to diagnose whether the jaw pain is associated with a heart problems or sinus or any other dental complication. Also, as there is no proper evidence to establish a link ...
*  Jaw movement dysfunction related to Parkinson's disease and partially modified by levodopa. | Journal of Neurology,...
OBJECTIVES--To test the hypotheses that Parkinson's disease can differentially produce deficits in voluntary and rhythmic jaw movements, which involve different neuronal circuits, and that levodopa treatment improves specific components of the motor deficit. METHODS--Patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease and control subjects were tested on a series of jaw motor tasks that included simple voluntary movement, isometric clenching, and natural and paced rhythmic movements. Jaw movements were measured by changes in electromagnetic fields and EMG activity. Patients with Parkinson's disease with fluctuations in motor responses to levodopa were tested while off and on. RESULTS--During the off state, patients with Parkinson's disease were significantly worse than the control subjects on most tasks. The deficits included a decrease in amplitude and velocity during jaw opening and closing, aberrant patterns and low amplitude of EMG activity ...
*  Headache / Migraine - Bay Area TMJ and Sleep Center
Tension-type headaches can be treated with a "specialized" orthotic appliance (a completely different design which functions differently than a night guard or splint) which is used to reposition the lower jaw so the jaw muscles are more relaxed and the jaw joints are in the correct position. This appliance limits the amount of force the closing jaw muscles can generate resulting in the reduction or elimination of headaches, migraines, jaw pain, facial pain, TMJ pain, neck and shoulder pain.. There are many nerves, ligaments, and blood vessels in and around the jaw joints. If the jaw joints are not in the correct position, the joints can impinge on these structures causing various pains about the face, head, neck, and shoulders. The jaw joints must be in the correct position.. Dr. Busciglio has treated many patients with chronic headaches and/or migraines and insures the ...
*  Lower Jaw Pain - Causes of Mandible Pain - | neo-people.ru
A break in the lower jaw bone could occur due to trauma caused by physical assault, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and falls. Both men and women are equally susceptible to having fractures of the jaw bone. However, due to the more aggressive nature of the causes, the incidence of fractured lower jaw is 3 times higher in men than in women. The mandible may undergo a simple fracture, comminuted fracture or a compound fracture.. In a simple fracture, the bone does not fragment after the break, and there is no penetration of the broken bone into the skin and other tissues. In a comminuted fracture, the bone breaks into more than two fragments. In a compound fracture, the broken ends of the bone pierce the skin and other nearby tissues. Fracture of the lower jaw is typically characterized by tenderness and excruciating pain that worsens during any jaw movements. This makes activities such as speaking, eating, or just ...

*  Mark Witton.com Blog: February 2016
Secondly, given how ecologically variable modern birds with helical jaw joints are, and that there is no obvious correlation between asymmetric quadrate condyles and mandibular bowing, we need to treat them as part of a 'functional package' - a recipe of functional elements considered simultaneously to assess their overall effect on behaviour and lifestyle. The attempt here is to see the bigger picture of how such joints work with the rest of the jaw - do they function in a pelican-like fashion? It doesn't seem so. The amount of mandibular movement in spinosaurids is pretty negligible compared to what we see in modern birds. As noted above, quantification of of jaw motion by Hendrickx et al. suggests the lower jaws move only a tiny amount, each jaw splaying 20 mm from a skull approaching 1000 mm long. It's likely this motion would not even be noticeable in life. I'm reminded of the calculations Darren and I predicted for ...
