A 3D Continuum Finite Element Muscle Model for the Investigation of Cervical Spine Load-Sharing Mechanisms and Injury Assessment during Impact Loading ScenariosDownload
The mechanical behavior of the individual cervical tissues as well as the head-neck complex kinematics plays a very important role in proper functioning of the cervical spine and is a key factor in more appropriate understanding of injury mechanism, prevention, detection, control and treatment....
Several studies have been conducted on the playingrelated physical injuries of college music students. In this study, a client-centered, occupation-based survey was administered to music majors at a large midwestern university. The primary objectives of the study were to examine which health...
Although a number of cytoskeletal derangements have been described in the setting of traumatic axonal injury (TAI), little is known of early structural changes that may serve to initiate a cascade of further axonal degeneration. Recent work by the authors has examined conformational changes in...
Vitrification of articular cartilage (AC) could enhance tissue availability but requires high concentrations of cyroprotective agents (CPAs). This study investigated relative injuries caused by commonly used CPAs. We hypothesized that the in situ chondrocyte dose–injury relationships of five...
Background: Cycling is an increasingly popular recreational activity and mode of transportation, and many North American municipalities are implementing policies and infrastructure to encourage cycling participation for all ages. Crashes while cycling, however, can have devastating consequences...
The purpose of this study was to determine figure skaters‟ perceptions regarding their injury experiences and the support provided by their coaches following their injuries. Eight female, competitive figure skaters were interviewed. The interview questions assessed the injury experience, the...
Indigenous injury outcomes: Life satisfaction among injured Māori in New Zealand three months after injuryDownload
Background: Māori, the indigenous population of New Zealand, experience numerous and consistent health disparities when compared to non-Māori. Injury is no exception, yet there is a paucity of published literature that examines outcomes following a wide variety of injury types and severities for...
Poisoning injuries constitute a significant health problem worldwide. Suicide is one of the leading causes of deaths and poisoning is the most common method utilized for the same. The objectives of this program of research were: 1) to systematically review existing studies analyzing the...
Prediction of Load-Sharing Mechanisms and Patterns of Human Cervical Spine Injuries Due to High-Velocity Impact Using Finite Element MethodDownload
The purpose of the current study was to investigate the loading rate dependency, load-sharing and injury mechanisms of the C2-C3 cervical spine unit. A ligamentous bio-realistic finite element model was constructed considering comprehensive geometrical representation at tissue level components...
Sensory Nerve Injuries: Advances in Diagnosis and Novel Therapy to Enhance Sensory Recovery in HumansDownload
The unique difference between central and peripheral nervous systems is that regeneration actually occurs in the periphery. However, the functional recovery after surgical repair is highly variable and return to pre-injury state despite surgical advances is rare. When specifically looking at...
