The purpose of this study was to determine the cane lengths currently used by patients with hemiplegic stroke for ambulatory assistance. The sample consisted of 116 adults with hemiplegic stroke. Descriptive statistics and Chi-square test for trend were conducted to examine the distributions of cane lengths, which were classified as follows: reaching >2 cm below the greater trochanter (GT), reaching from <2 cm below to <2 cm above the GT, or reaching >2 cm above the GT. Cane lengths reaching >2 cm above the GT were most common (range 62%–88%). No difference in mean cane length was found with respect to gender, age, time elapsed after stroke, nature of pathology (infarction, hemorrhage), paralyzed region (left, right), cane type (mono or four-point), or those responsible for deciding cane lengths (clinicians, patients, family members). These findings mean patients with hemiplegic stroke are actually using canes longer than conventionally proposed cane lengths. © 2017 RESNA

Given an unstructured point set, we use an MLS (moving least-squares) approximation to estimate the local curvatures and their derivatives at a point by means of an approximating surface. Then, we compute neighbor information using a Delaunay tessellation. Ridge and valley points can then be detected as zero-crossings, and connected using curvature directions. We demonstrate our method on several large point-sampled models, rendered by point-splatting, on which the ridge and valley lines are rendered with line width determined from curvatures. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

In this study, tetrachloroaurate as an electron acceptor of a microbial fuel cell (MFC) has been studied to discover the parameters that affect the cost-effective recovery of gold. The modeling and equations for calculating the maximum actual efficiency and electrochemical impedance spectroscopic internal resistance of the MFC were also developed. The maximum power density (Pmax) of 6.58W/m2 with a fill factor of 0.717 was achieved for 60mL volumes of 2000ppm Au(III) catholyte and 12.2mM acetate anolyte, respectively. The Pmax can also be predicted simply by measuring Rint by EIS. Additionally, the maximum actual MFC efficiency of about 57% was achieved, and the recovery efficiency of Au and the remaining concentration reached 99.89±0.00% and 0.22±0.00ppm, respectively, for an Au(III) concentration of 200ppm. The anodic concentration polarization quenching of the MFC strongly supports a mediator mechanism for the electron transfer from the microorganism to the anode. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

A cost-effective microbial fuel cell (MFC) system was developed in order to recover silver metal from silver ion containing wastewaters. After 8h reaction, silver metal recovery efficiencies as high as 99.91±0.00%-98.26±0.01% were achieved. The initial concentrations were from 50ppm to 200ppm with a load resistor of 1000Omega;. In the batch-fed cathode and continuous-fed anode system with an initial silver concentration of 200ppm, discharge curves display the production of both silver metal and electric energy at a rate of 69.9kg silver per KWh energy output. The maximum power of about 4.25W/m 2, maximum voltage of 0.749V, maximum current density of 5.67A/m 2, and a fill factor of 0.626 were achieved at 1000ppm initial silver ion concentration. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

In this study, removal of Hg 2+ as an electron acceptor of a microbial fuel cell (MFC) was successfully achieved. The initial pH affected the removal efficiency of Hg 2+ from electrochemical and chemical reactions. The effluent Hg concentrations for initial Hg 2+ concentration of 50mg/L after a 5-h reaction were 3.08±0.07, 4.21±0.34, 4.84±0.00, and 5.25±0.36mg/L for initial pH of 2, 3, 4, and 4.8, respectively. For 10-h reaction, the effluent Hg concentration was in the range of 0.44-0.69mg/L, for different initial Hg 2+ concentrations (25, 50, and 100mg/L). Lower initial pH and higher Hg 2+ concentration resulted in larger maximum power density. A maximum power density of 433.1mW/m 2 was achieved from 100mg/L Hg 2+ at pH 2. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

After peripheral nerve injury, Schwann cells are released from the degenerating nerve, dedifferentiated, and then actively participate in axonal regeneration. Dedifferentiated Schwann cells, together with macrophages, are involved in eliminating myelin debris, forming bands of Büngner that provide pathways for regenerating axons, and redifferentiating for remyelination. Activation of Erk1/2 and c-Jun was shown to induce stepwise repair programs in Schwann cells, indicating that plastic changes in Schwann cell activity contribute to interaction with axons for regeneration. Schwann cell β1 integrin was identified to mediate the Cdc2-vimentin pathway and further connect to adaptor molecules in the growth cone of regenerating axons through the binding of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. Timely interaction between Schwann cells and the axon (S-A) is critical to achieving efficient axonal regeneration because the delay in S-A interaction results in retarded nerve repair and chronic nerve damage. By comparing with the role of Schwann cells in developing nerves, this review is focused on cellular and molecular aspects of Schwann cell interaction with axons at the early stages of regeneration. © 2015 S.

In this paper, we designed a document security checkpoint for inspecting leakage of sensitive documents including military information from the internal to the outside network. Our designed model checks all documents when they are downloaded, sent, and printed. The model consists of four modules: authentication module, access control module, misuse monitor module, and tracking module. The authentication module checks the insider's information and after which allows an insider to log on to the system. The access control module authorizes an insider to do operations (read, write) according to his role and security level. The pattern monitor module watches an insider's abnormal access on documents as comparing the insider's actual process to current process profile in database. The tracking module traces documents sent outside and verifies fabrication of documents. The document security checkpoint prevents indiscriminate access to documents and it does not allow access to documents unrelated to the insider's duty and security level. Even though the document is illegally leaked by an insider, it can be tracked by watermarking techniques in tracking module.
