  1. 1. Eccentric training in the treatment of tendinopathy

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Department of Surgical and Perioperative Sciences, Sports Medicine

    Författare :Per Jonsson; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :Eccentric training; Achilles tendon; patellar tendon; supraspinatus tendon; impingement; tendinopathy; tendinosis;

    Sammanfattning : Chronic painful tendinopathies are common, not only in sports and recreationally active people, but also among people with a sedentary lifestyle. Both the lower and upper limbs are affected. There is lack of knowledge about the etiology and pathogenesis to tendinopathy, and many different treatments options have been presented. LÄS MER

  2. 2. On spinal mechanisms for reflex control in man modulation of Ia-afferent excitation with changes in muscle length, activation level and fatigue

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Författare :Maria M. Nordlund; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology; Electromyography; eccentric; concentric; presynaptic inhibition; H-reflex; central fatigue; twitch interpolation; muscle spindle; Electromyography; eccentric; concentric; presynaptic inhibition; H-reflex; central fatigue; twitch interpolation; muscle spindle;

    Sammanfattning : To control muscle force, neural activation has to take alterations in muscle mechanics into account. This thesis assesses modulations in excitatory efficacy of Ia-afferents during muscle length changes at different levels of voluntary activation and during fatigue. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Optics for Low Vision Enabling

    Detta är en avhandling från Certec, Lund University

    Författare :Jörgen Gustafsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Eccentric viewing; Low vision optics; Low vision rehabilitation; People with low vision; Preferred retinal; locus PRL ; Resolution; Visual acuity; Ophtalmology; Medicinsk teknik; Medical technology; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; rehabilitation; revalidation; kinesitherapy; Oftalmologi; Physical medicine; Contrast sensitivity; Detection; Eccentric correction; CFL ; Central visual field loss; Central scotoma; Aberrations; Astigmatism;

    Sammanfattning : For people with central visual field loss, eccentric vision is all that they have to rely on. Even for those who learn how to correctly utilize their eccentric vision, it will never be as good as the central for two entirely different reasons: the off-axis optics of the eye can result in large refractive errors, and the low function of the peripheral retina.

  4. 4. Chronic Tennis Elbow Aspects on Pathogenesis and Treatment in a Soft Tissue Pain Condition

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Magnus Peterson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tennis elbow; pain; chronic; soft tissue; imaging; PET; RCT; survey; treatment; exercise; eccentric; concentric; epicondylosis; epicondylitis; tendinosis; tendinitis;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives: To study the treatment practice of chronic tennis elbow (TE) among general practitioners (GPs) and physiotherapists (PTs), the effects of a simple, graded home exercise regime versus expectation, the effects of eccentric versus concentric exercise, and the involvement of the substance P – NK1 receptor system in the peripheral, painful tissue of chronic TE patients by positron emission tomography (PET).Materials and methods: A postal survey regarding therapeutic methods used in patients with chronic TE was sent to 129 GPs and 77 PTs, 81 subjects with chronic TE were randomly and blindly assigned to either an exercise group or a wait list group, 120 subjects were randomly assigned to either eccentric or concentric exercise and ten subjects were examined by PET and the NK1 specific radioligand [11C]GR205171.

  5. 5. Optimal Use of Peripheral Vision

    Detta är en avhandling från Kalmar, Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Karthikeyan Baskaran; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; off-axis refractive errors; peripheral aberrations; aberrometers; central visual field loss; preferred retinal locus; eccentric viewing; absolute central scotoma; adaptive optics; eccentric correction.; Optometry; Optometri;

    Sammanfattning : People who lose their central vision have to rely on their peripheral vision for all visual tasks. The ability to resolve fine details in the periphery is reduced due to retinal limitations and the optical aberrations arising from the use of off-axis vision. LÄS MER
