  1. 1. Wrist and thumb joint postures and motions: Measurements using electrogoniometry and EMG

    Författare :Per Jonsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wrist joint; Finger joint; Electromyography; Accuracy; Electrogoniometry; Input device; Information and communication technology; Mobile phone; Muscle activity; Posture; Thumb; Wrist;

    Sammanfattning : Correct measurements of the joints’ extreme postures, velocity and repetitiveness are important for studies of the origin of musculoskeletal disorders. Posture measurements of wrist and thumb joints may also provide insights into input device designs that may reduce effort and/or facilitate productivity. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Surgical Restoration of Grasp Control in Tetraplegia Carina Reinholdt Department of Orthopedics/Hand Surgery, Institute of Clinical Sciences, The Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Göteborg, Sweden ABSTRACT Aim: The overall aim of this thesis was to improve the grasp and release function of patients with tetraplegia undergoing reconstructive hand surgery. In order to reach this objective, new and more cost-efficient surgical concepts with maintained patient safety were designed. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Advanced technology in the evaluation of chronic neck impairment

    Författare :Martin Ålund; Gunnar Németh; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : An electrogoniometrical method was modified for clinical motion analysis of the head and neck. Simultaneous measurements of neck motion range and motion pattern in the three planes could be obtained, and a graphical illustration of the movements was possible. The equipment showed high reliability and validity. LÄS MER
