Reproducibility and Repeatability of Five Different Technologies for Bar Velocity Measurement in Resistance Training.

Ann Biomed Eng 2019 Jul 12;47(7):1523-1538. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Human Performance and Sports Science Laboratory, Faculty of Sport Sciences, University of Murcia, C/ Argentina s/n, Santiago de la Ribera, Murcia, Spain.

This study aimed to analyze the agreement between five bar velocity monitoring devices, currently used in resistance training, to determine the most reliable device based on reproducibility (between-device agreement for a given trial) and repeatability (between-trial variation for each device). Seventeen resistance-trained men performed duplicate trials against seven increasing loads (20-30-40-50-60-70-80 kg) while obtaining mean, mean propulsive and peak velocity outcomes in the bench press, full squat and prone bench pull exercises. Measurements were simultaneously registered by two linear velocity transducers (LVT), two linear position transducers (LPT), two optoelectronic camera-based systems (OEC), two smartphone video-based systems (VBS) and one accelerometer (ACC).

We-Measure: Toward a low-cost portable posturography for patients with multiple sclerosis using the commercial Wii balance board.

J Neurol Sci 2015 Dec 14;359(1-2):440-4. Epub 2015 Oct 14.

Department of Neurology and Psychiatry, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy. Electronic address:

This study was aimed at investigating whether postural sway measures derived from a standard force platform were similar to those generated by a custom-written software ("We-Measure") acquiring and processing data from a commercial Nintendo balance board (BB). For this purpose, 90 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and 50 healthy controls (HC) were tested in a single-day session with a reference standard force platform and a BB-based system. Despite its acceptable between-device agreement (tested by visual evaluation of Bland-Altman plot), the low-cost BB-based system tended to overestimate postural sway when compared to the reference standard force platform in both MS and HC groups (on average +30% and +54%, respectively).

Validity and reliability of a novel slow cuff-deflation system for noninvasive blood pressure monitoring in patients with continuous-flow left ventricular assist device.

Circ Heart Fail 2013 Sep 27;6(5):1005-12. Epub 2013 Jun 27.

New York Presbyterian, Columbia University, New York, NY.

Magnetic tunnel junction design margin exploration for self-reference sensing scheme.

Authors:
Z Sun H Li X Wang

J Appl Phys 2012 Apr 13;111(7):7C726-7C7263. Epub 2012 Mar 13.

This work investigates the magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) design requirements for the application of nondestructive self-reference sensing scheme, a novel sensing scheme featuring high tolerance of process variations, fast sensing speed, and no impact on device reliability. Unlike the conventional sensing scheme that requires a large TMR ratio and the uniform antiparallel and parallel resistances for MTJs, the nondestructive self-reference sensing scheme is more sensitive to the roll-off slope of MTJ's R-I or R-V curve. Our purpose is to provide a guidance to facilitate MTJ design used in the nondestructive self-reference scheme. Read More

Validity and reliability of the Nintendo Wii Balance Board for assessment of standing balance.

Gait Posture 2010 Mar 11;31(3):307-10. Epub 2009 Dec 11.

Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, The University of Melbourne, Carlton, Victoria 3010, Australia.

Impaired standing balance has a detrimental effect on a person's functional ability and increases their risk of falling. There is currently no validated system which can precisely quantify center of pressure (COP), an important component of standing balance, while being inexpensive, portable and widely available. The Wii Balance Board (WBB) fits these criteria, and we examined its validity in comparison with the 'gold standard'-a laboratory-grade force platform (FP). Read More
