Since several factors are related to motion changes of the hip joints, effects of dominant side should be investigated while the whole spine during trunk axial rotation is considered.
Vertebral axial rotation measurement method, Computer methods and programs in biomedicine, vol.
The custom six-DOF testing device applied the continual, pure, axial rotation force around a superior metal ring of the vertebra, allowing for movement along the x-, y-, and z-axes, along with rotation around the x-, y-, and z-axes, respectively.
This does not have a tidal effect because it is associated with axial rotation and merely becomes part of the equatorial bulge of rotation.
Thanks to the adjunct of the De-Rotation Connector in the PASS[R] LP Spinal System, the correction technique now allows, without applying any additional stress on the spine and not requiring any specific instruments, a significant correction of vertebral axial rotation leading to the full 3D correction of the deformity.
examined two transfemoral amputees and found that for one participant, the torque absorber increased axial rotation of the socket relative to the foot [12].
Their unique Angle Locking Mechanism allows surgeons to hold the angle of articulation when performing a task, while the Axial Rotation Knob allows rotation of the tip at that angle.
The PASS[R] LP Spinal System includes polyaxial anchorages such as pedicle screws, sacral plates, hooks/claws, rods/rod-plates, sacral/iliac screws and a UNIQUE variety of active connectors that permit realignment of vertebrae (fracture) or correction of vertebral axial rotation (full 3D correction of a deformity).
Their unique Angle Locking Mechanism allows surgeons to lock the angle of articulation when performing a task, while the Axial Rotation Knob allows rotation of the tip at that angle.
The BRYAN([R]) Cervical Disc is designed to allow for motion of the cervical spine (neck) including flexion/extension (forward-backward rotation), lateral bending (side-to-side rotation), axial rotation (looking left and right) as well as translation (gliding).
The basic principle of the ProDisc(R) is to restore the natural range of mobility and stability in terms of: flexion and extension, lateral bending, and axial rotation and compression according to the company -- Spine Solutions.
Falena[R] limits the extension of the spine at the symptomatic levels and preserves flexion, axial rotation, lateral bending and mobility of the symptomatic vertebral section.
As a compliment to static processes, customers who want agitation capabilities may order one or more of the following: Axial rotation, end over end, gentle motion reciprocating, and Shaka([TM]) reciprocating.
Biomechanically, the Wellex maintains flexion, axial rotation and lateral bending but, more importantly, is not an extension blocker.
The axial rotation is also measured to determine the directional vector.
