Combining haptic feedback with movement sensing and computation in real-time can create a rich and diverse system for characterizing and retraining human movement. This thesis presents haptic gait retraining as a conservative treatment for individuals with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis. Wearable haptic feedback devices, which either vibrate or stretch the skin, are worn on the body and used to inform kinematic changes during walking. The focus of gait retraining is to shift loading away from the arthritic medial compartment of the knee by reducing the knee adduction moment - a clinically relevant measure that has been linked to pain, incidence, severity, and progression of medial compartment knee osteoathritis. Thus, training individuals with knee osteoarthritis to walk in a way that reduces the knee adduction moment has the potential to reduce knee pain, improve function, and slow osteoarthritis progression. Four experiments were conducted to explore the viability of haptic gait retraining. During all experiments, subjects walked on an instrumented treadmill while motion capture data was streamed in real-time and wearable haptic feedback was used to inform gait changes. In the first experiment, subjects received feedback of the knee adduction moment measurement and were given freedom to make kinematic changes to lower the knee adduction moment. All subjects demonstrated the ability to make gait modifications to acheive this goal, though some chose awkward gait patterns. In the second experiment, haptic feedback was used to inform changes to the foot progression angle as subjects were trained to ``toe-in'' more than they normally did. Toe-in gait proved to be an easy-to-learn gait pattern which reduced the knee adduction moment and looked natural. The purpose of the third experiment was to train simultaneous changes to multiple kinematic gait parameters. Subjects received haptic feedback for trunk sway, tibia, and foot progression angles to inform new gait patterns based on correlations between the knee adduction moment and each kinematic parameter. Subjects demonstrated large reductions in the knee adduction moment comparable to more invasive surgical interventions such as high tibial osteotomy. In the final experiment individuals with persistent knee pain and clinically diagnosed knee osteoarthritis participated in a six week gait retraining program to assess learning retention and symptom changes. Subjects demonstrated learning retention and at the end of the six weeks reported improvements in knee pain and function, which were significantly greater than from the expected placebo effect. This thesis shows that haptic gait retraining is a promising conservative treatment option for individuals suffering from medial compartment knee osteoarthritis. Haptic gait retraining has the potential to alter walking patterns which could over time reduce knee pain, slow osteoarthritis progression, and ultimately improve quality of life.

- War in the body : the evolutionary arms race between HIV and the human immune system and the implications for vaccines2013 SpringerWick, W. David; Yang, Otto O.In the relatively few decades since the introduction of HIV into the human population, variants of the virus have diverged to such an extent that, were the discussion about something other than viruses, said variants could easily be classified as different species. This book will consider these evolutionary variations, as well as the different and, at times, opposing theories attempting to explain them. It will compare and contrast the ways in which the immune system and drugs affect the virus's evolution, and the implications of these for vaccine development. The issue will be explored and explained through "ecological genetics," which postulates that all living organisms have, besides rivals, enemies. This is divergent from the more traditional school of "population genetics," which emphasizes that evolution occurs among rival species (or variants thereof) that compete for niches or resources in a fixed, unreactive environment. Both models will be formulated using mathematical models, which will be included in the book. Finally, it will consider the possibilities for designing a vaccine that blocks HIV from escaping the immune system.

- 2015Wastewater analysis is a rapidly developing scientific discipline with the potential for monitoring real-time population-level trends in illicit drug use. Originally used in the 1990s to monitor the environmental impact of liquid household waste, the method has since been used to estimate illicit drug consumption in different cities (Daughton, 2001; Zuccato et al., 2008; van Nuijs et al., 2011). It involves sampling a source of wastewater, such as a sewage influent to a wastewater treatment plant. This allows scientists to estimate the quantity of drugs consumed in a community by measuring the levels of illicit drugs and their metabolites excreted in urine (Zuccato et al., 2008).
- 2011 SpringerGarcía-Tejero, Iván Francisco.Irrigated agriculture, a vital component of general agriculture, supplies fruits, vegetables, and cereals consumed by humans and grains fed to animals. Consequently, agriculture is the largest user of fresh water globally, and irrigation practices in many parts of the world are biologically, economically, and socially unsustainable. Water management should balance the need for agricultural water and the need for a sustainable environment. Water-use efficiency is the prime challenge in worldwide farming practices where problems of water shortages are widespread. Currently, agriculture is undergoing significant changes in innovative irrigation, fertilizer technology, and agronomic expertise. These elements constitute a vital platform for sustainable agricultural success and for preventing environmental damage. This review presents several processes linked to environmental irrigation, balancing environmental protection with improved agricultural production.

- 2009 WHOAdams, John; Bartram, Jamie; Chartier, Yves; Sims, Jackie ."Diseases related to inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene are a huge burden in developing countries. It is estimated that 88% of diarrhoeal disease is caused by unsafe water supply, and inadequate sanitation and hygiene (WHO, 2004c). Many schools serve communities that have a high prevalence of diseases related to inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene, and where child malnutrition and other underlying health problems are common. Schools, particularly those in rural areas, often completely lack drinking-water and sanitation and handwashing facilities; alternatively, where such facilities do exist they are often inadequate in both quality and quantity. Schools with poor water, sanitation and hygiene conditions, and intense levels of person-to-person contact, are high-risk environments for children and staff, and exacerbate children's particular susceptibility to environmental health hazards. Children's ability to learn may be affected by inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in several ways. These include helminth infections (which affect hundreds of millions of school-age children), long-term exposure to chemical contaminants in water (e.g. lead and arsenic), diarrhoeal diseases and malaria infections, all of which force many schoolchildren to be absent from school. Poor environmental conditions in the classroom can also make both teaching and learning very difficult. Girls and boys are likely to be affected in different ways by inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in schools, and this may contribute to unequal learning opportunities. Sometimes, girls and female teachers are more affected than boys because the lack of sanitary facilities means that they cannot attend school during menstruation. The international policy environment increasingly reflects these issues. Providing adequate levels of water supply, sanitation and hygiene in schools is of direct relevance to the United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals of achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and reducing child mortality. It is also supportive of other goals, especially those on major diseases and infant mortality." - p. iiiAlso available: Print – 2009

- 2009. NAPRasmussen, Kathleen M.; Yaktine, Ann L."As women of childbearing age have become heavier, the trade-off between maternal and child health created by variation in gestational weight gain has become more difficult to reconcile. Weight Gain During Pregnancy responds to the need for a reexamination of the 1990 Institute of Medicine guidelines for weight gain during pregnancy. It builds on the conceptual framework that underscored the 1990 weight gain guidelines and addresses the need to update them through a comprehensive review of the literature and independent analyses of existing databases. The book explores relationships between weight gain during pregnancy and a variety of factors (e.g., the mother's weight and height before pregnancy) and places this in the context of the health of the infant and the mother, presenting specific, updated target ranges for weight gain during pregnancy and guidelines for proper measurement. New features of this book include a specific range of recommended gain for obese women. Weight Gain During Pregnancy is intended to assist practitioners who care for women of childbearing age, policy makers, educators, researchers, and the pregnant women themselves to understand the role of gestational weight gain and to provide them with the tools needed to promote optimal pregnancy outcomes."--Back cover.

This volume also includes discussions of short lists of organ-based benign lesions with concerning morphological features. Presented in the differential diagnosis section, they will not only serve as useful checklists for the surgical pathologist who is seriously contemplating a diagnosis of malignancy due to the observation of some cytological or histological atypia, but also help hone the key features of each malignant atypia. Well-Differentiated Malignancies: New Perspectives provides an innovative resource on the difficult topic of well-differentiated malignancies for pathology residents, fellows and for those already in clinical practice.

Yet how much is really known about primary care? What Matters in Medicine: Lessons from a Life in Primary Care is a look at the past, present, and future of general practice, which is not only the predecessor to the modern primary care movement, but its foundation. Through memoir and conversation, Dr. David Loxterkamp reflects on the heroes and role models who drew him to family medicine and on his many years in family practice in a rural Maine community, and provides a prescription for change in the way that doctors and patients approach their shared contract for good health and a happy life. This book will be useful to those on both sides of primary care, doctors and patients alike." -- [Publisher-supplied data]
- 2013 ebraryChurchill, Larry R.; Fanning, Joseph B.; Schenck, David.Being a patient is a unique interpersonal experience but it is also a universal human experience. The relationships formed when we are patients can also teach some of life's most important lessons, and these relationships provide a special window into ethics, especially the ethics of healthcare professionals. This book answers two basic questions: As patients see it, what things allow relationships with healthcare providers to become therapeutic? What can this teach us about healthcare ethics? This volume presents detailed descriptions and analyses of 50 interviews with 58 patients, representing a wide spectrum of illnesses and clinician specialties. The authors argue that the structure, rhythm, and horizon of routine patient care are ultimately grounded in patient vulnerability and clinician responsiveness. From the short interview segments, the longer vignettes and the full patient stories presented here emerge the neglected dimensions of healthcare and healthcare ethics. What becomes visible is an ethics of everyday interdependence, with mutual responsibilities that follow from this moral symbiosis. Both professional expressions of healthcare ethics and the field of bioethics need to be informed and reformed by this distinctive, more patient-centered, turn in how we understand both patient care as a whole and the ethics of care more specifically. The final chapters present revised codes of ethics for health professionals, as well as the implications for medical and health professions education.

- 2006Nestle, Marion.From publisher description: With What to Eat, this renowned nutritionist takes us on a guided tour of the supermarket, explaining the issues with verve and wit as well as a scientist's expertise and a food lover's experience. Today's supermarket is ground zero for the food industry, a place where the giants of agribusiness compete for sales with profits, not nutrition or health, in mind. Nestle walks us through the supermarket, section by section: produce, dairy, meat, fish, packaged foods, breads, juices, bottled waters, and more. Along the way, she untangles the issues, decodes the labels, clarifies the health claims, and debunks the sales hype. She tells us how to make sensible choices based on freshness, taste, nutrition, health, effects on the environment, and, of course, price. With Nestle as our guide, we learn what it takes to make wise food choices and are inspired to act with confidence on that knowledge. What to Eat is the guide to healthy eating today: comprehensive, provocative, revealing, rich in common sense, informative, and a pleasure to read.

- 2011Ku, Manwai Candy; Grusky, David B.; Ridgeway, Cecilia L.; Snipp, C. Matthew.In this dissertation, I investigate when and why gender segregation occurs in the professions of medicine, law and teaching. Drawing on social psychological perspectives on gender and theories on career development, I posit that segregation patterns differ across these three occupational contexts due to differences in gender valence of jobs and structures of career process. Specifically, I argue that early career choices are more gender-segregated in the highly gendered context of medicine and teaching, while the extent of gender segregation may vary (and increase) more substantially over time in the less structured contexts of teaching and law. Using data from professional organizations and government sources, I analyzed careers of a cohort of doctors, lawyers and teachers from their entry into their professions in 1991-1994 to 10-17 years after entry. Consistent with my hypotheses, doctors and teachers displayed highly gender-different aspirations than lawyers, and whereas the level of gender segregation remained fairly constant for doctors, it fluctuated somewhat for teachers and increased substantially for lawyers, particularly after the first six years of work. Analysis of 39 in-depth interviews further suggests that job choices among doctors and teachers reflect deeply held gendered ideas about people and work, whereas job choices among lawyers are seen as series of adjustments to organizational contexts, adjustments that usually differ for women and men. In total, these findings make the case for a more detailed view of intra-occupational gender segregation, one that places gender processes within the occupational context. In proposing a context-driven paradigm for studying gender inequality, this study brings the occupation to the center of the investigation, and argues for a more expansive view of gender segregation that takes into account the meanings and structures that delineate career decision-making and the constraints on the process.

Focusing on several critical junctures of this trajectory and drawing from the results of multi sited fieldwork, I reconstruct how a set of stakeholders (policymakers, judges, litigants, activists and pharmaceutical companies) spurred the surge of right-to-health litigation in Colombia, which according to recent estimates is the highest among middle-income countries. Additionally, I explore how a set of structural judicial remedies handed down by the Colombian Constitutional Court in 2008--ruling T-760/08--addressed the institutional determinants of the surge of right-to-health litigation and nudged policymakers in the direction of health-care reform.

- 2012 ScienceDirectGatterman, Meridel I.Providing a balanced, evidence-based discussion of whiplash and its associated disorders, Whiplash: A Patient Centered Approach to Management compiles information from many sources into a single, definitive reference. It clearly delineates rationales and procedures, covering cervical spine anatomy, neurology, kinesiology, epidemiology, patient history and assessment, imaging, soft tissue injuries, articular lesions, rehabilitation, and prognosis. Using numerous full-color photos and illustrations, an expert author team led by Dr. Meridel Gatterman offers concrete guidelines for a patient-centered approach to care of whiplash and whiplash-related conditions -- one that recommends minimally invasive procedures and therapies whenever possible. A companion Evolve website includes video clips showing stretching exercises, printable patient handouts, and narrated PowerPoint slides. A patient-centered approach to care emphasizes working with patients as partners, with both preferring minimally invasive procedures and therapies where appropriate, in a way that promotes self-healing, a holistic approach to the patient, and a humanistic attitude with regard to the patient/practitioner relationship. An easy-to-follow organization helps you to clearly identify whiplash and plan a course of treatment, beginning with an in-depth description of whiplash and the various approaches to treatment and moving on to cover the anatomy of the cervical spine, the mechanism of injury, physical examination, and imaging, then continuing with the management of whiplash injuries and complications such as headaches and joint injuries. Full-color photos and illustrations clarify concepts and procedures. Evidence-based content is based on findings in current literature, and cited in chapter references. Coverage of both typical and less common types of whiplash injuries helps you accurately assess varied symptoms and avoid overlooking any related signs and symptoms. Detailed coverage of the relationship between the cervical spine and the cervical distribution of the autonomic nervous system helps you recognize the potential complications of whiplash and how nerve anatomy informs these complications. More than 20 tables and charts provide a quick reference to facilitate review of the material. A glossary provides definitions and pronunciations of terms related to whiplash. Expert author Meridel Gatterman, MA, DC, MEd, is one of the leading chiropractic academics in the U.S., has written several other chiropractic textbooks and many peer-reviewed journal articles, has served as both a Dean and Director for two different chiropractic schools, and currently acts as a Consultant to the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners. A companion Evolve website includes video clips of a chiropractor performing stretching exercises, plus an image collection, narrated PowerPoint slides, and printable patient handouts.
- 2014 SpringerAlpini, Dario; Brugnoni, Guido; Cesarani, A.The new edition of this book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of whiplash-associated disorders, focusing in particular on a functional approach to clinical and instrumental diagnosis and rehabilitative treatment. It fully reflects the changes in our understanding of whiplash injuries since the first edition, and in particular the increased awareness that whiplash is a whole-body trauma in which forces act progressively from the lumbar region to the brain, through the cervical spine. Detailed attention is paid to the functional connections between the sense organs of the inner ear, the sympathetic system, and the spine with a view to optimizing diagnosis and treatment. It is explained how various treatment options can be employed to best effect in patients with different symptoms, following, but updating, the well-known Quebec Task Force guidelines. Underestimated aspects such as positional vertigo, somatic tinnitus, temporomandibular disorders, and back pain are also considered. This book will be an invaluable tool in everyday clinical practice for all who are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash injury.
- 2012 SpringerOtte, Andreas P.In the past two decades much has been published on whiplash injury, yet both the confusion regarding the condition and the medicolegal discussion surrounding it have increased. In this scenario, a guide to recent and current international research in the field is more necessary than ever. Especially functional imaging methods â" such as single-photon emission tomography, positron emission tomography, functional MRI, and hybrid techniques â" have demonstrated a variety of significant brain alterations. This book accordingly offers a critical approach to the challenging interpretation of the new research data obtained using functional neuroimaging in whiplash injury. It covers all aspects, including the imaging tools themselves and the different methods of image analysis. Whiplash Injury: New Methods of Functional Neuroimaging will hopefully help patients, their relatives and friends, physicians, and others to understand this condition as a disease.
