*  Corneal biomechanical properties in healthy children measured by corneal visualization scheimpflug technology | BMC...
We evaluated the corneal biomechanical properties in a population of healthy children in China. As far as we know, this is the first report of quantitative assessment of the corneal biomechanics in children population using CST. We used the newly updated CST software, which provided two more parameters (A1DA and A2DA) than previous versions. This helped to measure corneal deformation more comprehensively. We also assessed the symmetry of corneal biomechanics between the both eyes and found obviously interocular symmetry in SE, CCT, IOP, and corneal biomechanics in healthy children eyes. We also found that several CST biomechanical parameters in children are modified by CCT and IOP, while age, SE, and sex exert little influence on the CST measurements in this population.. Our observations of interocular symmetric biometry were consistent with previous studies [19-21]. Using ORA, Zheng et al. [22] demonstrated an obvious symmetry of CH and CRF ...

Methods Data were used from a randomized controlled trial (NTR1475) in which two exercise programs of 12 weeks were compared. One hundred forty nine patients with knee OA, who completed a 12-week exercise program, were measured at baseline and at 6-, 12- and 38-week follow-up. Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) analyses were used to determine longitudinal associations of changes in biomechanical functions (upper leg muscle strength, knee joint proprioception, self-reported knee instability and knee flexion and extension range of motion) with changes in pain severity (numeric rating scale) and activity limitations (WOMAC, physical function and Get up and go test) over time (i.e. baseline, 6-, 12- and 38-week follow-up). Univariable and multivariable associations, analyzing all biomechanical functions together, were performed.. ...

*  An investigation into the variable biomechanical responses to antipronation foot orthoses - University of Salford...
Antipronation foot orthosis are commonly used by health care professionals to treat a variety of lower limb conditions thought to be caused by excessive foot pronation. However, despite their widespread use, laboratory based research indicates that antipronation foot orthosis cause variable joint moment/motion biomechanical responses. If a specific biomechanical response is required to treat a specific clinical condition, it follows that practitioners cannot tailor foot orthosis confidently to alleviate symptoms thought to be associated with excessive pronation. A conceptual framework representing a biomechanical system of foot function was proposed to explain how external forces, foot structure, and neuromuscular factors cause these variable joint moment/motion responses to foot orthosis. Two studies (study 1 & study 2) sought to understand how external forces influenced joint moment/motion responses. Study ...

*  Regression relationships of landing height with ground reaction forces, knee flexion angles, angular velocities and joint...
Ground reaction forces (GRF), knee flexion angles, angular velocities and joint powers are unknown at large landing heights, which are infeasible for laboratory testing. However, this information is important for understanding lower extremity injury mechanisms. We sought to determine regression relationships of landing height with these parameters during landing so as to facilitate estimation of these parameters at large landing heights. Five healthy male subjects performed landing tasks from heights of 0.15-1.05 m onto a force-plate. Motion capture system was used to obtain knee flexion angles during landing via passive markers placed on the lower body. An iterative regression model, involving simple linear/exponential/natural logarithmic functions, was used to fit regression equations to experimental data. Peak GRF followed an exponential regression relationship (R2 = 0.90-0.99, p , 0.001; power = 0.987-0.998). Peak GRF slope and impulse also had an exponential relationship (R2 = 0.90-0.96, p ...

*  Vibration Analysis of Quartz Yaw-Rate Sensor to Reduce Mechanical Coupling
For a yaw-rate sensor (gyroscope), the reduction of mechanical coupling phenomenon is a key technology for achieving high performance. We analyze the phenomenon with a combination of two models, (1) a static model of a bending sensor beam with a geometrically asymmetric cross section, and (2) a dynamic model of two degrees of freedom system. This analysis proves that an origin of the mechanical coupling is a static tiny displacement due to the asymmetry of the cross section, and the tiny displacement amplified extremely by resonance phenomenon. The relationships between the extent of mechanical coupling, the asymmetric ration, and a resonant frequency differential ration, are also obtained. The relationships give a basic guideline for yaw-rate sensor design and fabrication.

*  Leg stiffness measures depend on computational method
Leg stiffness is often computed from ground reaction force (GRF) registrations of vertical hops to estimate the force-resisting capacity of the lower-extremity during ground contact, with leg stiffness values incorporated in a spring-mass model to describe human motion. Individual biomechanical characteristics, including leg stiffness, were investigated in 40 healthy males. Our aim is to report and discuss the use of 13 different computational methods for evaluating leg stiffness from a double-legged repetitive hopping task, using only GRF registrations. Four approximations for the velocity integration constant were combined with three mathematical expressions, giving 12 methods for computing stiffness using double integrations. One frequency-based method that considered ground contact times was also trialled. The 13 methods thus defined were used to compute stiffness in four extreme cases, which were the stiffest, and most compliant, consistent and variable subjects. All ...

Altered gait biomechanics associated with pediatric obesity may increase the risk of musculoskeletal injury/pathology during physical activity and/or diminish a child's ability to engage in sufficient physical activity. The biomechanical mechanisms responsible for the altered gait in obese children are not well understood, particularly as they relate to increases in adipose tissue. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of adiposity (i.e. body fat percentage, BF%) on lower extremity kinematics, muscle force requirements and their individual contributions to the acceleration of the center of mass (COM) during walking. We scaled a musculoskeletal model to the anthropometrics of each participant (n=14, 8-12 years old, BF%: 16-41%) and generated dynamic simulations of walking to predict muscle forces and their contributions to the acceleration of the COM. Muscle force output was normalized to muscle mass. BF% was correlated with average knee flexion angle during ...

Coagulation involves a complex set of events that are important in maintaining hemostasis. Biochemical interactions are classically known to regulate the hemostatic process, but recent evidence has revealed that mechanical interactions between platelets and their surroundings can also play a substantial role. Investigations into platelet mechanobiology have been challenging however, due to the small dimensions of platelets and their glycoprotein receptors. Platelet researchers have recently turned to microfabricated devices to control these physical, nanometer-scale interactions with a higher degree of precision. These approaches have enabled exciting, new insights into the molecular and biomechanical factors that affect platelets in clot formation. In this review, we highlight the new tools used to understand platelet mechanobiology and the roles of adhesion, shear flow, and retraction forces in clot formation.

A well-supported model of terrestrial locomotion envisions limbs functioning as spring-loaded inverted struts (Gray, 1944; Gray, 1968; Alexander, 1984; Blickhan, 1989; Blickhan and Full, 1993). During running at constant speed on level surfaces, the ground reaction force vector is thought to be directed more or less through the point of rotation of the limb on the body such that there is little or no moment at the joint and, therefore, little or no external work done at the proximal joints during a running step (Winter, 1983; Carrier et al., 1998; Roberts and Belliveau, 2005). Instead, the muscles that extend the distal limb joints appear to produce the external work of the step. These distal muscles are thought to contract isometrically and, together with their in-series tendons, to function as springs to store and recover elastic strain energy during the support phase of a running step (Cavagna et al., 1964; Cavagna et al., 1977; Alexander, 1984; Roberts et al., 1997). In this way, the cost of ...

A powered device augments a joint function of a human during a gait cycle using a powered actuator that supplies an augmentation torque, an impedance, or both to a joint. A controller estimates terrain slope and modulates the augmentation torque and the impedance according to a phase of the gait cycle and the estimated terrain slope to provide at least a biomimetic response. The controller may also modulate a joint equilibrium. Accordingly, the device is capable of normalizing or augmenting human biomechanical function, responsive to a wearer's activity, regardless of speed and terrain, and can be used, for example, as a knee orthosis, prosthesis, or exoskeleton.
