. If this change was less than these MCD values, we cannot conclude that athlete’s function has significantly improved after treatment. The FAAM-T MDC values were higher than the values reported for the English version (ADL MDC: 5.7; Sport MDC: 12.3) and other validation studies. 14 , 32 , 34 These

–7 times per week]). A validation study of this instrument found symptoms of sleep apnea loaded on a single factor (MAP Index 1; average frequency of loud snoring, breathing cessation, and snorting/gasping) and had good test–retest reliability ( r  = .92). 15 Predictive ability was assessed using receiver

Clinical Bottom Line There is moderate evidence to support subsymptomatic aerobic exercise as a treatment of PCS; therefore, it should be considered as a clinical option for reducing PCS and prolonged concussion symptoms. Clinicians should use a previously validated protocol to determine subsymptomatic

, tissue mass prediction equations for the upper 12 and lower 14 extremities have been developed from simple surface anthropometric measurements (lengths, circumferences, breadths, skinfolds) and validated against the actual tissue masses provided by DXA. These regression equations allow for the

. More recently, authors have considered low-cost instruments like the inclinometer that may be used in field conditions to assess the JPS in a more clinician-friendly way. 7 , 9 , 10 Previous studies have validated this methodology to assess the JPS in shoulder rotations and knee extension and flexion

different testing methods was determined using a Pearson product–moment correlation coefficient. Linear regression was used to develop a prediction equation, and Bland–Altman plots with limits of agreement calculations were used to validate the prediction equation. The sample was randomly divided evenly

by the presence of a significant aftereffect in the final block completed without TF. That is, the presence of such aftereffects can be confidently interpreted as evidence for significant offline prism adaptation (e.g., Redding & Wallace, 2008 ). Also, a validation of the influence of online vision

The purpose of the study was to use the elliptical cylinder model adapted for infants (Sun & Jensen, 1994) with a cross-sectional sample to select appropriate multiple linear regression equations for predicting masses and nonlinear regression equations for predicting principal moments of inertia (Yeadon & Morlock, 1989). The linear and nonlinear predictions were evaluated with an independent cross-validation sample of infants and a sample where inertias ranged below and above the cross-sectional sample. The cross-validation for masses was compared to a cross-validation of four linear regressions for masses developed by Schneider and Zernicke (1992). It is recommended that the linear regression equations developed in this study be used to predict infant segment masses. It is also recommended that the nonlinear regression equations developed in this study be used to predict the principal moments of inertia of all infant segments, other than head Ix and lower trunk Ix and Iy.

The segment principal moments of inertia of a sample of 7 elderly males and 12 elderly females were estimated using a model based on stacked elliptical cylinders at 2-cm intervals. Apart from the thigh, all male parameters were larger than female parameters. The largest differences were for the lower trunk and hand and for the forearm. The inertia parameters of the thigh for the males were about 12% smaller than the females. Nonlinear estimations of segment principal moments were then determined. The effect of the differences was tested by cross validating cadaver results against the elliptical model results. The regressions were then cross validated using an independent sample of 6 subjects. The standard errors of fit given as a percentage of the mean, Sf, were smaller than the cross validation results for the cadaver regressions and the differences were attributed to differences between cadavers and living subjects.
