Abstract Current approaches to obtain lumbar morphometry data usually require expensive medical imaging technology, long processing time, and are often limited by small sample size. This study develops regression models for the cross-sectional areas (CSAs) of the lower lumbar (i.e., from L3/L4 to L5/S1 level) intervertebral discs (IVDs) and vertebral endplates (EPs) using both simple and complex anthropometric variables. CSAs were measured using OsiriX © software, based on 3T magnetic resonance ...

Purpose Variability of the human lower lumbar geometry is related to complications of disc arthroplasty surgery. Accurate morphometric descriptions are essential for the design of artificial intervertebral discs to ensure good prothesis-vertebra contact and better load distribution, and can improve spinal biomechanics. Unfortunately, current knowledge of the lower lumbar geometry is limited either in the representativeness of sample populations or the accuracy and comprehensiveness of measuremen...

Frequently, clinical balance outcome measures are limited by floor or ceiling effects and provide insufficient resolution to determine subtle deficits. Detailed assessment of postural control obtained through posturography may be cost-prohibitive or logistically infeasible in some clinical settings. Two-dimensional (2D) motion analysis may provide a clinically feasible means of obtaining detailed quantification of balance deficits. Forty-five participants aged 18-80 years, with and without Parki...

Deficits in sequence-specific learning (SSL) may be a product of Parkinson’s disease (PD) but this deficit could also be related to dopamine replacement. The purpose of this study was to determine whether dopamine replacement affected acquisition and retention of a standing Continuous Tracking Task in individuals with PD. SSL (difference between random/repeated Root Mean Square Error across trials) was calculated over 2 days of practice and 1 day of retention for 4 groups; 10 healthy young (HY),...

Abstract Accurate and reliable low back morphological data such as the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the erector spinae muscle (ESM) is vital for biomechanical modeling of the lumbar spine to estimate spinal loading and enhance the understanding of injury mechanisms. The objective of the present study is to enhance the current database regarding ESM sizes by studying with larger sample sizes, collecting data from live subjects, using high resolution MRI scans, using computerized, reliable, and r...

Accurate and reliable “individualized” low back erector spinae muscle (ESM) data are of importance to estimate its force producing capacity. Knowing the force producing capacity, along with spinal loading, enhances the understanding of low back injury mechanisms. The objective of this study was to build regression models to estimate the ESM cross-sectional area (CSA). Measurements were taken from axial-oblique magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of a large historical population [54 females an...

The high incidence of falls in people with Parkinson disease (PPD) (>70% fall each year, 13% fall > once/week) is attributed to central nervous system damage that disturbs movement amplitude regulation and sensory processing. Despite this, PPD are capable of learning motor tasks with practice. Virtual environments are being developed to provide safe repetitive practice in an effort to decrease falls. To inform the development of these environments, we examined causes and contributors to falls fr...

Gait difficulties and falls are commonly reported in people with Parkinson disease (PD). Reduction in gait speed is a major characteristic of Parkinsonian gait, yet little is known about its underlying determinants, its ability to reflect an internal reservation about walking, or its relationship to falls. To study these issues, we selected age, disease severity, and nonmotor factors (i.e., depression, quality of life, balance confidence, and exercise beliefs and attitudes) to predict self-selec...

Objective: Evaluate predictions of stance time symmetry and stance force symmetry from wireless bilateral instrumented shoe insoles designed for rehabilitation using smartphone applications to provide real-time feedback. Design: Cross-sectional study. Subjects: Five subjects with no known gait abnormalities. Methods: Subjects performed ten trials of three conditions: walking without a limp, limping on the right foot, and limping on the left foot, with data captured simultaneously with two force ...

Introduction. Dopamine-replacement medications may improve mobility while not improving responses to postural challenges and could therefore increase fall risk. The purpose of this study was to measure reactive postural responses and gait-related mobility of patients with PD during ON and OFF medication conditions. Methods. Reactive postural responses to the Pull Test and performance of the Functional Gait Assessment (FGA) were recorded from 15 persons with PD during ON and OFF medication condit...
