From the pressure maps obtained from FSA measured on the patient, the forces (force = Area x Pressure) which are generated in the area of the ischial tuberosities were estimated, so that the active area was measured corresponding to ischial tuberosities (see Fig.
Maximum pressure, as explained previously, is considered an unstable measure [47] and was used in this study to gauge the movement of the ischial tuberosities and not to investigate the redistribution of pressure during a pelvic movement.
The opisthocranium is characterized by the slightly concave occipital in vertical plane, an expansion of the posterior tuberosities, the large auditory bulla, the triangular shaped basioccipital and the reduced temporal lines.
Prior to the study, the probes of the O2C were securely attached to the skin with adhesive medical tape right beneath the ischial tuberosities. The probes were custom-made to prevent interference with the seating interface.
Support as large an area of the ischial tuberosities and thighs as possible.
A line drawn just anterior to the ischial tuberosities divides the perineum into two areas: an anterior region called the urogenital triangle and a posterior region called the anal triangle (Figure 2).
The medial, posterior, and total offset of the humeral head center were measured relative to the IM axis; the anterior and posterior distances from the humeral head center were also measured for the lesser and greater tuberosities, respectively.
Close examination of the effectiveness of movements Performed within Strand A of the current study, interms of percentage unloading of the ischial tuberosities, showed that the majority of movements performed were ineffective in terms of pressure relief.
We studied how neuromuscular stimulation through a magnetic coil and a sacral anterior root stimulator (SARS) implant (used for bladder emptying) affects pressure and skin blood circulation under the ischial tuberosities (ITs) of participants with spinal cord injury (SCI).
For phylloxera to attack a grape rootstock with sufficient virulence to cause vine decline, as proposed in the first hypothesis, they need to aggressively feed on storage roots, forming numerous damaging structures called tuberosities. Examination of roots on vines in suspect vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties on 101-14 Mgt.
Internal fixation is mandatory for younger patients but the results are worse in more complex fracture patterns, including fractures of tuberosities. Hemiarthroplasty or reverse arthroplasty can be used in older, low demanded patients.
(13) Mazzocca and associates demonstrated in a cadaveric study that 88% of radial tuberosities had a ridge, usually of medium size.
