  • The contraction history of the muscle and strength change: lessons learned
           from unilateral training models
    • Authors: Zachary W Bell; Vickie Wong, Robert W Spitz, Raksha N Chatakondi, Ricardo Viana, Takashi Abe Jeremy P Loenneke
      First page: 01TR01
      Abstract: Participation in resistance exercise is encouraged throughout the lifetime, offering such benefits as improved strength and muscle mass accretion. Considerable research has been completed on this topic within the past several decades, with the current narrative dictating that increased muscle size yields further increases in muscle strength. However, there remain unanswered questions relating to the observation that certain training interventions yield only one specific adaptation (strength or size). Studies investigating resistance training often include either bilateral or unilateral exercise programs. Unilateral exercise programs are often used as they allow for comparison between two separate training interventions within the same individual. This is viewed as an advantage, relating to statistical power, but a limitation insofar as one intervention could be confounded by the intervention within the opposing limb. For example, when only one limb is trained both limbs often ge...

  • Variability of concentric angle-specific isokinetic torque and impulse
           assessments of the knee extensors
    • Authors: Dustin J Oranchuk; Jonathon G Neville, Adam G Storey, André R Nelson John B Cronin
      First page: 01NT02
      Abstract: Objective : Length-tension relationships are widely reported in research, rehabilitation and performance settings; however, several isometric contractions at numerous angles are needed to understand these muscular outputs. Perhaps a more efficient way to determine torque-angle characteristics is via isokinetic dynamometry; however, little is known about the variability of isokinetic measurements besides peak torque and optimal angle. This paper examines the variability of angle-specific isokinetic torque and impulse measures. Approach : Three sessions of concentric (60°·s −1 ) knee extensions were performed by both limbs of 32 participants. Assessments were repeated on three occasions, separated by 5–8 d. To quantify variability, the standardized typical error of measurement (TEM) was doubled and thresholds of 0.2–0.6 (small), 0.6–1.2 (moderate), 1.2–2.0 (large), 2.0–4.0 (very large) and  >4.0 (extremely large) were applied. Additionally, variability was...

  • The position of the cuff bladder has a large impact on the pressure needed
           for blood flow restriction
    • Authors: Robert W Spitz; Zachary W Bell, Vickie Wong, Ricardo B Viana, Raksha N Chatakondi, Takashi Abe Jeremy P Loenneke
      First page: 01NT01
      Abstract: Objective : A recent study suggested that measuring the blood flow restriction pressure every training session may not be needed given the relative stability of this measurement over an eight week period of time. However, within clinical and research settings, various personnel may apply the cuff differently resulting in the cuff bladder being in dissimilar positions. Understanding the effect (if any) of bladder position may help with the standardization of blood flow restriction and ensure the proper stimulus is applied. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to measure and compare arterial occlusion pressures in the lower body between medial and lateral bladder positions. Approach : Thirty-two participants volunteered to have their arterial occlusion pressure measured thrice in their right leg. The 12 cm cuff was applied twice with the bladder covering the inner portion of their thigh (to establish agreement with itself) and once with the bladder covering the la...

  • Forecasting intracranial hypertension using multi-scale waveform metrics
    • Authors: Matthias Hüser; Adrian Kündig, Walter Karlen, Valeria De Luca Martin Jaggi
      First page: 014001
      Abstract: Objective : Acute intracranial hypertension is an important risk factor of secondary brain damage after traumatic brain injury. Hypertensive episodes are often diagnosed reactively, leading to late detection and lost time for intervention planning. A pro-active approach that predicts critical events several hours ahead of time could assist in directing attention to patients at risk. Approach : We developed a prediction framework that forecasts onsets of acute intracranial hypertension in the next 8 h. It jointly uses cerebral auto-regulation indices, spectral energies and morphological pulse metrics to describe the neurological state of the patient. One-minute base windows were compressed by computing signal metrics, and then stored in a multi-scale history, from which physiological features were derived. Main results : Our model predicted events up to 8 h in advance with an alarm recall rate of 90% at a precision of 30% in the MIMIC-III waveform database, imp...

  • Validity of smartphones and activity trackers to measure steps in a
           free-living setting over three consecutive days
    • Authors: Christoph Höchsmann; Raphael Knaier, Denis Infanger Arno Schmidt-Trucksäss
      First page: 015001
      Abstract: Objective : This study assessed the validity of a consumer activity wristband, a smartphone, and a research-grade accelerometer to measure steps in a free-living setting. Approach : Thirty healthy adults were equipped with two Garmin Vivofit (non-dominant wrist), one iPhone SE (right pants pocket), three ActiGraph wGT3X  +  (two on the hip, one on the non-dominant wrist), and one StepWatch (right ankle) and instructed to wear the devices continuously during a 3 d monitoring period. All activities of daily living were recorded in 15 min intervals in a diary. The StepWatch served as the criterion method and validity was evaluated by comparing each device with the criterion measure using mean absolute percentage errors (MAPE). Main results : The MAPE for the total step count during the 3 d monitoring period was high with a general underestimation of steps by all devices of  >20% compared to the criterion measure. The wrist-worn ActiGraph markedly overestimated...

  • Novel experimental model for studying the spatiotemporal electrical
           signature of acute myocardial ischemia: a translational platform
    • Authors: Brian Zenger; Wilson W Good, Jake A Bergquist, Brett M Burton, Jess D Tate, Leo Berkenbile, Vikas Sharma Rob S MacLeod
      First page: 015002
      Abstract: Myocardial ischemia is one of the most common cardiovascular pathologies and can indicate many severe and life threatening diseases. Despite these risks, current electrocardiographic detection techniques for ischemia are mediocre at best, with reported sensitivity and specificity ranging from 50%–70% and 70%–90%, respectively. Objective : To improve this performance, we set out to develop an experimental preparation to induce, detect, and analyze bioelectric sources of myocardial ischemia and determine how these sources reflect changes in body-surface potential measurements. Approach : We designed the experimental preparation with three important characteristics: (1) enable comprehensive and simultaneous high-resolution electrical recordings within the myocardial wall, on the heart surface, and on the torso surface; (2) develop techniques to visualize these recorded electrical signals in time and space; and (3) accurately and controllably simulate ischemic stress wit...

  • Routine monitoring of isometric knee extension strength in patients with
           muscle impairments using a new portable device: cross-validation against
           a standard isokinetic dynamometer
    • Authors: Jean-Yves Hogrel; Olivier Benveniste Damien Bachasson
      First page: 015003
      Abstract: Objective : Muscle strength is a critical clinical hallmark in both health and disease. The current study introduces a novel portable device prototype (MyoQuad) for assessing and monitoring maximal voluntary isometric knee extension torque (MVIT). Approach : Fifty-six patients with inclusion body myositis were studied. Knee extension weakness is a key feature in this inflammatory muscle disease. Cross-validation with an isokinetic dynamometer (Biodex System 3 Pro) was performed. Between-day reproducibility and ability to monitor changes in muscle strength over time compared to the gold standard method as a reference, were also investigated. Main results : The measurement was feasible even in the weakest patients. Agreement between methods was excellent (standard error of measurement (SEM) was 3.8 Nm and intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) was 0.973). Least significant difference (LSD) was 4.9 and 5.3 Nm for the MyoQuad and the Biodex, respectively Measur...

  • Real-time imaging of infarction deterioration after ischemic stroke in
           rats using electrical impedance tomography
    • Authors: Lu Cao; Haoting Li, Danchen Fu, Xuechao Liu, Hang Ma, Canhua Xu, Xiuzhen Dong, Bin Yang Feng Fu
      First page: 015004
      Abstract: Objective : This study investigated the feasibility of electrical impedance tomography (EIT) for monitoring the deterioration of ischemic lesion after the onset of stroke. Approach : Fifteen rats were randomly distributed into two groups: rats operated to establish a right middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) ( n   =  10), and sham-operated rats ( n   =  5). Then, the operated rats were kept 2 h under anesthesia for EIT monitoring. Subsequently, descriptive statistical analysis was performed on whole-brain resistivity changes, and repeated-measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) on the average resistivity variation index. Additionally, pathological examinations were performed after 6 h of infarction. Main results : The results obtained showed that ischemic damage developed in the right corpus striatum of the rats with MCAO, whereas the brains of the sham group showed no anomalies. The descriptive statistical analysis revealed that the whole-brain re...

  • End-to-end trained encoder–decoder convolutional neural network for
           fetal electrocardiogram signal denoising
    • Authors: Eleni Fotiadou; Tomasz Konopczyński, Jürgen Hesser Rik Vullings
      First page: 015005
      Abstract: Objective : Non-invasive fetal electrocardiography has the potential to provide vital information for evaluating the health status of the fetus. However, the low signal-to-noise ratio of the fetal electrocardiogram (ECG) impedes the applicability of the method in clinical practice. Quality improvement of the fetal ECG is of great importance for providing accurate information to enable support in medical decision-making. In this paper we propose the use of artificial intelligence for the task of one-channel fetal ECG enhancement as a post-processing step after maternal ECG suppression. Approach : We propose a deep fully convolutional encoder–decoder framework, learning end-to-end mappings from noise-contaminated fetal ECGs to clean ones. Symmetric skip-layer connections are used between corresponding convolutional and transposed convolutional layers to help recover the signal details. Main results : Experiments on synthetic data show an average improvement of 7...

  • Multimodal remote chest monitoring system with wearable sensors: a
           validation study in healthy subjects
    • Authors: Inéz Frerichs; Barbara Vogt, Josias Wacker, Rita Paradiso, Fabian Braun, Michael Rapin, Laura Caldani, Olivier Chételat Norbert Weiler
      First page: 015006
      Abstract: Objective : Development of wearable medical technology for remote monitoring of patients suffering from chronic lung diseases may improve the care, therapy and outcome of these patients. Approach : A multimodal system using wearable sensors for the acquisition of multiple biosignals (electrical bioimpedance of the chest for electrical impedance tomography and respiratory rate assessment, peripheral oxygen saturation, chest sounds, electrocardiography for heart rate measurement, body activity, and posture) was developed and validated in a prospective, monocentric study on 50 healthy subjects. The subjects were studied under different types of ventilation (tidal and deep breathing, forced full expiration maneuver) and during increased body activity and posture changes. The major goals were to assess the functionality by determining the presence and plausibility of the signals, comfort of wearing and safety of the vest. Main results : All intended signals were re...
