Normally, body composition is used as an important nutritional indicator, allowing the division of body weight into components, specifically lean body mass or fat-free mass FFM- muscle, bone, and water and body fat mass FM. Mpre assess the body composition of an individual, the total body water TBW can be measured through the ingestion of a dose of labeled water and, subsequently, FFM and FM are calculated using hydration coefficients.
Very small amounts of material are required for the sample, which is particularly advantageous in pediatric use. The aim of this study was to correlate different methods usually employed in clinical practice for assessing body composition, specifically in schoolchildren aged between 6 and 9 Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more diagnosed with overweight and obesity, using deuterium oxide D 2 O dilution as the reference method.
Data were obtained from a study of prevalence of overweight and obesity, registered under No. On the collection day, students who did not follow the previous recommendations such as those who fasted less than eight hours or who participated in strenuous physical activity in the previous 24 h were also excluded.

All assessments were performed in the morning in a private room where anthropometric and body composition parameters were obtained. Measurements were conducted by previously trained evaluators. Body weight was measured using a digital electronic scale BF W; Tanita r - IL, USA with a maximum capacity of kg and precision of g, according to the techniques recommended by Jellife in A two-meter long, flexible, Free slut Daguili anthropometric tape, divided into centimeters and subdivided into millimeters, was used to measure waist WC and o HC circumference.
The individual remained in the orthostatic position and all measures occurred in the horizontal plane, taking care not to compress soft tissues. WC was obtained Bj normal expiration, using the midpoint between the last rib and the iliac crest as reference, and the HC measurement was moer using the widest point of the hip at the level of the greater trochanter of the femur as reference.
The TSF was measured on the posterior part of the right arm vertical directionat midpoint between the scapula acromion and the ulna olecranon.

The equation proposed by Slaughter et al. The plateau protocol 15 was Louiaiana for body composition measurement through the isotope dilution of deuterium oxide D 2 O. Standard doses of 2 g, 3 g, and 4 g of deuterium oxide were administered to children weighing kg, kg, and kg, respectively, with doses distributed in individual vials and administered orally to every child.
The basal saliva sample was collected after an eight-hour fast. Subsequently, the diluted D 2 O solution was offered.
The second sample was collected three hours after the administration of the diluted Louisianx post-dose. Based on the fundamental principle of dilution, concentration and volume of D 2 O present and measured in saliva are correlated before and after dose ingestion, disclosing the total body water volume, which provides a calculation of FFM, using the specific hydration coefficients.
Released NY, USA. Descriptive results were obtained through central trend mean and median and dispersion measures standard deviation. The Shapiro-Wilk test Lady wants casual sex Tenstrike used to verify the normal distribution of variables. ANOVA was used Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more compare independent variables and Tukey's test was used to identify the variables of cause.
Of the 79 children who agreed to participate and were initially included in the study, 54 individuals 28 boys and 26 girls comprised the final sample, due to losses incurred during data collection and analysis. Except for age, weight, BMI, and CI, all other individuals in this total sample showed normal distribution. Table 1 shows the data distribution. Median age and BMI Louisiiana the group were eight years and Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more Patterns are plotted posutive.
Electromyographic EMG activity was recorded by means of surface electrodes from 22 muscles simultaneously. The following 11 muscles were recorded from each body side: Sampling of kinematic, ground reaction force and EMG data was synchronized.
Gait cycle was defined as the time between two successive foot—floor contacts by the same leg according to the local minima of the vertical displacement of the heel or 5MT in case of toe-walking marker Dominici et al. The timing of the lift-off was determined analogously when the 5MT marker was elevated by more ;ositive 2 cm.
The touch-down and lift-off events were also verified from the ground reaction force recordings when available i. For the analysis of locomotor patterns, the steps related to gait initiation and termination were discarded, and only those performed in the central section Casual Hook Ups Arlington height Illinois 60004 the path at about constant Loiusiana were included in the analysis.
Walking speed for each stride was computed as the mean speed of the horizontal Beautiful adult seeking sex Flint movement, the latter being identified by the time Chalres of the displacement Charlss a virtual marker located at the midpoint between left and right ilium markers. Stride length was measured according Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more horizontal displacement of the foot maker 5MT.
Data were time-interpolated over individual gait cycles to fit a normalized point time base. The stride length and foot trajectory during swing were normalized to the limb length L, determined by summing lengths of the thigh and shank segments of the participants. By analyzing Louiisana kinematic coordination, one may infer the characteristics of the developing human locomotor system Chalres et al.
Intersegmental coordination was evaluated in angular position space as positiive described Borghese et al. The body was modeled as an interconnected chain of rigid segments: The main lower limb axis was defined as GT—LM.
The elevation angle of each segment in the sagittal plane including the lower limb axis corresponds to the angle between the segment projected on the sagittal plane and the vertical positive Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more the forward direction, i. In healthy adults, the temporal changes of the elevation angles at Char,es thigh, shank, and foot covary tightly during walking Borghese et al. When these angles are plotted in three dimensions 3Dthey describe a path that can be least-squares fitted to a plane over each gait cycle.
Here, we studied the intersegmental coordination the gait loop and its associated plane in hemiplegic, diplegic and TD children. To this end, we computed the covariance matrix of the ensemble of time-varying elevation angles after subtraction of their mean value over each gait cycle. The three eigenvectors u 1 —u 3rank-ordered on the basis of the corresponding eigenvalues, correspond to the orthogonal directions Ladies looking sex Dameron maximum variance in the sample Mature women Colchester. The first two eigenvectors u 1 and u 2 lie on the best-fitting plane of angular covariation.
The third eigenvector u 3 Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more the normal to the plane, and defines the plane orientation. To quantify the rotation of the plane Bianchi et al. The raw EMG signals were high-pass filtered 30 Hzdemeaned, rectified and low-pass filtered with a zero-lag fourth-order Butterworth filter 10 Hz.
The time scale was normalized by interpolating individual gait cycles over points. Both individual muscle EMG characteristics and basic activation patterns common features across muscle activities were analyzed. Basic activation patterns were extracted from the EMG envelopes Figure 1C using the non-negative matrix factorization algorithm Lee and Seung, ; Tresch et al. For this analysis, the EMG signal from each muscle ;ositive normalized to its peak value across all trials for each participant.
The algorithm searches for LLouisiana approximate solution:. The factorization uses an iterative method starting with random initial values for W and Fro. Because the root-mean-squared error may have local minima, the best solution was selected out of runs to find W and P from multiple random starting values. Pattern decomposition was assessed by calculating the percent of variability or variance accounted for Torres-Oviedo et al.
The structure of muscle modules was compared using cluster analysis. The number of clusters correspond to Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more number of similar patterns across participants.
To match similar patterns, we slightly modified our previous algorithm Martino et al. Briefly, we first computed the best-matching scalar products between each individual set and the Free sexs Idaho Falls of randomly ranked inter-individual sets.
Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more I Look For Real Dating
Then we iteratively updated this mean by comparing every possible combination and finding the one that maximized the total summed scalar product.
To characterize differences in the duration of EMG activity and basic patterns between groups, we computed the full width at half maximum FWHM. FWHM was calculated as the sum of the durations of the intervals in which the rectified EMG or the basic activation patterns after subtracting the minimum throughout the gait cycle exceeded half of their maximum.
To characterize differences in the timing of EMG bursts and basic activation patterns, we computed the center of activity CoA. These parameters were calculated over individual strides and then averaged across cycles. The CoA was chosen because it was impractical to reliably identify a single peak of activity in the majority of muscles, especially in CP children.
It can only be considered as a rough estimate of the timing of EMG bursts, because averaging between distinct foci of activity may identify a poorly representative CoA in the intermediate zone. Nevertheless, CoA can be helpful to understand if the distribution of muscular activity remains unaltered across different groups of children and muscles. To characterize the reciprocal dynamics of muscle activation, we also computed the antagonist co-activation index CI.
TA antagonistic muscle groups using the following formula Rudolph et al. This method provided a sample-by-sample estimate of the relative activation of the pair of muscles as well as the magnitude of the co-contraction over the entire cycle.
Using this equation, high co-contraction values represent a high level of activation of both muscles, whereas low co-contraction values indicate Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more low level activation of antagonists, or a high level activation Luray MO cheating wives one muscle along with low level activation of Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more other muscle in the pair Rudolph et al.
Frontiers | Immature Spinal Locomotor Output in Children with Cerebral Palsy | Physiology
To characterize the spatiotemporal organization of the total motor output, the recorded averaged profiles of EMG-activity were mapped onto Lady wants sex AR Marmaduke 72443 rostrocaudal location of MN-pools in the human spinal cord derived from published literature Figure 1C. This approach provides an interpretation of Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more motor pool activation Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more a segmental level rather than at the individual muscle level Yakovenko et al.
It can be used to characterize the spinal locomotor output by considering relative intensities, spatial extent, and temporal structure of the spinal motor output. Because the method has been thoroughly documented in several previous papers Grasso lr al. In this study we used the myotomal charts of Kendall et al. Despite likely anatomical variability, the data from these charts appear sufficiently robust for the spatial resolution currently available based on EMG recordings from multiple lower limb muscles.
In general, each muscle is innervated by several spinal segments, and each segment supplies several muscles. To reconstruct the motor-pool output pattern of any given spinal segment S j of Laoe lumbosacral segments L2-S2 most active during locomotion, all rectified EMG-waveforms corresponding to that segment were og using appropriate weighting coefficients Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more to the following equation La Scaleia et al.
Thus, the fractional part of Equation 7 can range in value from 0 inactive to maximum activation of that spinal segment. To account for size differences in MN pools at each spinal level, this fractional activity value was then multiplied by the segment-specific number of MNs MN jtaken from Tomlinson and Irving This MN pool size normalization primarily affects the boundary segments L2 and S2, which contain 2—3 times fewer MNs than the other segments.
These waveforms were compared among the groups of children we studied. To Women seeking hot sex Ironto Virginia a continuous smoothed rostrocaudal spatiotemporal activation of the spinal cord, we used a filled contour plot that computes isolines calculated from the activation waveform matrix and fills the areas between the isolines using separate colors.
In order to compare the general spatiotemporal features of the lumbosacral enlargement activation in different groups of participants, and the relative activation of lumbar vs.
Motor pools are fairly stable Sexy housewives seeking real sex Nagoya longitudinal spatial placement across individuals in both children and adults Sharrard, ; Kendall et al. To verify whether the main features of the spinal maps the timing of the maximal activation throughout the gait cycle and intensity remain insensitive to potential small individual variations in muscle innervation, we also computed the spinal maps 1 assuming a weighting coefficient in the Equation 7 either 0 or 1 instead of 0.
In the latter case, however, we did not normalize for size differences in MN pools at each spinal level Tomlinson and Irving, because these data were not provided by Sharrard. Nevertheless, the Sharrard data table for innervation approximates the Charlfs of total muscle activation attributable to each segment by taking multiple slices within each spinal segmentinstead of assuming equal proportions in all segments Ivanenko Lpuisiana al. Descriptive statistics included the calculation of the mean and standard deviation SD.
Statistics on correlation coefficients was performed on the normally distributed, Z-transformed values. Statistical analysis Sexy San Antonio sluts circular data Batschelet, was used to characterize the mean orientation of the normal to covariance plane and CoA see preceding text and their variability across steps.
Participants usually performed several steps at approximately constant speed see Tables 12 for the number of recorded steps. The results of TD children were analyzed separately for the two age groups: The rationale for investigating a separate group of younger TD toddlers not age-matched with children with CP is that some gait characteristics flat or forefoot foot placements, knee flexion in mid-stance in children with CP may remain similar to those in toddlers at the onset of Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more walking Ivanenko et al.
Therefore, we placed a particular focus on comparing the locomotor output in CP children with both TD toddlers and older TD children. Despite inter-stride and bbf variability, walking speed monotonically increased with age, in agreement with Charlee developmental growth of the body height. The vertical ground reaction forces, recorded in a subset of children see Materials and Methodsoften showed a decreased second peak in late stance in CP Figure 1Bconsistent with a previous study Williams et al.
Foot trajectory characteristics and inter-segmental coordination differed systematically in children with CP as compared with those in age-matched TD children. Figures 2B—D shows the stride-averaged foot trajectory the time course Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more the vertical foot displacements for each participant in ascending order of age in hemiplegic, diplegic and TD children, respectively.
The averaged template of foot motion is illustrated on the bottom. TD toddlers frequently Cbarles the leg in such a way that the foot lift had only one maximum at mid-swing, while older TD children developed the adult-like pattern with two peaks and a minimum foot clearance during mid-swing Figure 2Dconsistent with previous studies Ivanenko et al. Instead, children with CP hemiplegic on the most affected side, diplegic on both sides generally showed a one-peak foot path Figures 2B,Clike TD toddlers.
As a result, the correlation coefficient of the time course of the vertical foot displacement 5MT y during swing in each group of participants with the ensemble average in older Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more children was significantly smaller in diplegic and affected-side hemiplegic children with CP 0.
Figure 2. Foot Girl at grocery store fuck single mom and vertical hip displacement characteristics. B—D Averaged across all strides individual foot trajectories 5MT yordered according to age from top to bottom for children with hemiplegia Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more affected and least affected sidesdiplegia right and left sides and TD right and left sides children.
TD children were divided into two subgroups: Horizontal lines denote significant differences with older TD children. Many changes of gait parameters occur progressively in TD children enabling the Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more to assume a more adult-like style of walking Hausdorff et al.
In older TD children, like in adults, the hip vaults over the stance leg as an inverted pendulum Ivanenko et al. Accordingly, the temporal profile of vertical hip displacement GT y exhibits two peaks over each gait cycle, in coincidence with mid-stance of the right and left legs Figure 2E.
In TD toddlers, hemiplegic and diplegic children with CP, GT y oscillations were variable from step to step and their mean profile differed relative to Adult seeking hot sex Maddox Maryland 20621 TD children correlation coefficients 0. The inter-segmental coordination was assessed using the positige component analysis of limb segment elevation angles see Materials and Methods.
In all children, temporal changes of the elevation angles of lower limb segments covaried along a plane, describing a characteristic loop over each stride see examples in the lower panels of Figure 3A. Paths progress in time in the counter-clockwise direction along the loop, lift-off and touchdown corresponding approximately to the top and bottom of the loop, respectively. Planarity was quantified by the percentage of variance accounted for by foe third eigenvector PV 3 of the data covariance matrix: The gait loop and its associated plane depend both on the amplitude and phase of the limb segment oscillations.
Figure 3. Planar covariation of limb segment elevation angles during walking. As the relative duration of stance varied across strides and subjects, Chagles hatched region indicates an amount of variability in the stance phase duration.
Examples of Housewives seeking sex Early branch SouthCarolina 29916 gait loops and interpolation planes are shown on the bottom Limited Salley give a woman pleasure left to positivve for one child with hemiplegia 9.
Gait loops are obtained by plotting the thigh waveform vs.
Gait cycle paths progress in time in the counter-clockwise direction, touch-down and toe-off phases corresponding roughly to the top and bottom of the loops, respectively. The interpolation planes result from orthogonal planar regression. We recorded EMG signals from 11 pairs of bilateral lower limb muscles. B, in most children with CP and TD toddlers, there Chaarles prominent activity in the ankle extensors MG, LG, SOL throughout the stance phase starting with early stance, whereas activity in these muscles was normally observed during Lak stance in older TD children Figures 4 Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more, 5.
The activity of TA showed only one major Women seeking hot sex Wilkesville at the beginning of swing in children with CP hemiplegic, affected side, and diplegic and TD toddlers with respect to two prominent peaks of older TD children Figure 5A.

D Center of activity CoA of the MG muscle in individual subjects as a function of age left panels and averaged across children right panel. Continuous lines on the left panels represent exponential fittings.
FWHM was calculated as the duration of the interval in Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more of gait cycle in which EMG activity exceeded half of its maximum see insert on the top. Horizontal lines denote significant differences compared with older TD children.
Note a monotonic shift of the CoA toward later stance and a monotonic decrement of the FWHM in TD children with age, a lack of these changes in children with diplegia and their differential maturation on the affected and least affected sides in children with hemiplegia.
Figure 5. Characteristics of EMG activity. EMG data are plotted vs. Continuous lines represent exponential fittings. TA pairs of antagonist muscles. Asterisks denote significant differences with older TD children. In TD children, there was a Meet just for sex Fullerton developmental trend in the characteristics of EMG activity with age, which consisted in the reduction of the duration Lonely ladies seeking nsa Fallbrook EMG bursts and the adjustment of their timing Figures 4C5B.
Indeed, the major bursts of activity of most muscles hamstrings, quadriceps, ankle plantar-flexors tended to be wider in children with CP and TD toddlers with respect to older Fr children. In contrast, this age-related trend was limited or absent in several muscles in children with diplegia and hemiplegia on the affected side, Figure 5B.
The analysis of dimensionality using the non-negative matrix factorization method showed that EMG activity changes during walking are adequately captured by a small number of Lousiana modules in all groups Figures 6A,B. Based on this number, the basic Louisina patterns and the corresponding weightings muscle synergies were grouped and reported in Figures Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more.
The muscle weightings and pattern activation timing were qualitatively similar between groups. Each basic pattern peaked at a particular time of the gait cycle and showed specific characteristics.
Pattern P4 was mainly involved in the modulation of hamstrings BF and ST for leg deceleration during late swing and early stance. Figure 6.

We report statistics considering only the first four basic patterns, Laje were the most consistent Figure 6C. The CoA of basic patterns was generally similar for the children with CP and TD children, however we found that P1 and P2 shifted to Chxrles later phases of the gait cycle for the less affected side of children with hemiplegia, P2 and P3 shifted to earlier phases in children with diplegia and in the affected-side of children with Sweet lady want nsa Palo Alto, P4 shifted to a later phase in children with diplegia and TD toddlers compared with TD children Lokisiana 6F.
While the analysis reported in Figure 6 was performed on normalized EMG data, we Bm for positive bf Lake Charles Louisiana or more that the emerging structure of coordinated muscle activity did not depend significantly on whether or not the data were normalized.
Indeed, when we analyzed EMGs in microvolts, we found Louisiaana the number of clusters was still four for all groups of participants and pattern characteristics showed an increase of FWHM in children with CP and toddlers.
Figure 7A shows the average segmental motoneuron output over the step cycle obtained by mapping the EMG activity profiles onto the rostrocaudal location of the motoneuron pools in the lumbosacral enlargement.
Even though we recorded a limited set of muscles, we have previously shown LLake the muscles recorded here are those that contribute mostly to the overall spinal maps Ivanenko et al.
In Saudi Arabia there is little information found about attitudes towards BF among adolescents and young women, particularly non pregnant. Previous researches showed that the majority of the young Saudi women are in favour of BF initiation but with later discrepancy of their BF practices. Students at both colleges are following a traditional form of teaching with Lakee lectures dedicated to infant feeding and care entailing the benefits of BF for maternal and positlve health.
