BackgroundThe anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture accounting for about 50% of all knee ligament injuries. The rehabilitation program requires a long time to rebuild muscle strength and to reestablish joint mobility and neuromuscular control. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the muscle strength recovery in athletes with ACL reconstruction. MethodsWe enrolled soccer atlethes, with isolated anterior cruciate ligament rupture treated with bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft artroscopic reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this paper was to analyze how the rest between interval repetitions in intra-set training (at maximal isometric loads) could affect the ability to repeat maximal contractions in subjects with different levels of performance and different experience in strength development work. METHODS: Twenty subjects were divided randomly into two different groups depending on their sport characteristics: ten subjects were trained in strength development work (Group Strenght--23...

AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate the short-term and long-term effects of a moderate intensity nordic walking program, and the feasibility of this exercise form among Hungarian community-living older adults. METHODS: Forty one community-living older adults aged over 60 years (mean 67.5, SD 4.8 years) participated in a nordic walking program consisting of a 10-week supervised period and a 25-week unsupervised period. The age and gender matched control group did not receive any types of exercise programs...

Self-assessment of driving skills became a noteworthy research subject in traffic psychology, since by knowing one's strenghts and weaknesses, drivers can take an efficient compensatory action to moderate risk and to ensure safety in hazardous environments. The current study aims to investigate drivers' self-conception of their own driving skills and behavior in relation to expert evaluations of their actual driving, by using naturalistic and systematic observation method during actual on-road driving session and to assess the different aspects of driving via comprehensive scales sensitive to different specific aspects of driving...

UNLABELLED: Movement therapy during the rehabilitation of breast cancer has become more important over the last years. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a randomized controlled study the feasibility of gentle strenght training was compared to conventional gymnastic exercises during rehabilitation of breast cancer patients. The aim oft this study was to identify alternative sports intervention in the treatment of breast cancer patients. The intervention group (IG) was lifting standardized weights weekly (50 % of h1RM), while the control group (CG) received conventional gymnastic exercises...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the physical strength, cerebral function, and mental health conditions in elderly persons, and to examine the correlation between these functions. METHODS: The subjects were 151 independent-living elderly Japanese women, mean age 70 +/-5 years (+/-SD; range, 60 to 80 years), with normal abilities in daily life. The health check-up was conducted from April to May 1997. Physical strength was estimated by measuring seven activities. Cerebral functions were assessed by six sub-tests of the General Aptitude Test Battery (GATB)...

Through a specific methological path, educational objectives of Regional interest have been identified with a punctual analysis of Health Planning documents. While organizing each educational acrivities, all SSR departments indicate the Regional educational objectives they are linked with, each connected to national educational objectives. Continuing Medical Education program in the Marche Region is strictly connected with the acts of health planning from 2006. Each SSR department report accompanying the balance sheets from 2006 to 2009 must contain a section specifically dedicated to ECM Program, indicating the annual budget for ECM Program...

An ineffective stimulus applied to cardiac tissue within the relative refractory period can alter the response to an immediately subsequent stimulus. We observed three response patterns that can coexist at different sites of stimulation in the same heart. In the first pattern, a stimulus of two to ten times diastolic threshold, applied too early to elicit a propagated response, becomes effective when a stimulus of equal strength is delivered 10 msec earlier. In the second pattern, a stimulus applied just late enough to evoke a response fails to do so when a stimulus of equal strenght precedes it by as much as 30 msec...

Body composition was studied in subjects from the seventh decade of life (13 M, 25F), observations being made on recruitment and at selected points over a 1-year program of endurance training. As at younger ages, the women initially had more subcultaneous fat than the men, particularly over the limbs. In both sexes, excess weights (9.3 kg. M; 8.1 kg, F) and average skinfold radings (16.2 mm, M; 21.1mm, F) were greater than in younger adults. Edurance training (1 hr of supervised exercise, 150-200 kcal persession, nominal four sessions per week) progressively reduced skinfold readings, by an average of 1...
