Series 2- Correlation to Roland Morris Back Pain Questionnaire to the RMPI, effect of mild exercise and heat.
In the second series of experiments, the RMPI was correlated to the Roland Morris Back Pain Questionnaire and then 2 modalities were used to see how the pain scale was affected.
The correlation between the Roland Morris Pain Questionnaire and the RMPI at the highest 2 range of motion measures for the 5 tests conducted here is shown in Table 3 for all 80 subjects with back pain.
In 25 subjects with back pain, the RMPI and Roland Morris scores were measured before and after 1 month of core muscle strengthening, as described under methods.
Finally, in 20 subjects, either dry (Figure 5) or moist heat (Figure 6) was used for 4 hours and the change in the RMPI was measured for extension, and left and right rotation.
Held at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the session will explore high-performance computing (HPC) technologies for the R language, focusing on recent significant gains in HPC-related packages for R including RMPI
, SNOW, ParallelR and many more.
