Correlation between Foot Arch Index and Quadriceps Angle among Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis in National Orthopaedics Hospital Enugu.

Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative joint disease characterised by breakdown of cartilages in joints which may further alter the joint biomechanics such as the quadriceps (Q) angle. Patello-femoral joint biomechanics is influenced by the direction and magnitude of force exerted by quadriceps muscle which may impact on the foot biomechanics. This study sought to determine the relationship between foot arch index...

The Contribution of X-Ray Equipment Control Panel Design Type to the Control of Nosocomial Infection: Soft Touch Button versus Knob Design

The control panel of x-ray equipment is exposed to contamination from the radiographer during routine use, hence the need for constant disinfection. Older x-ray equipment designs have a control knob design (CKD), while newer designs have soft touch buttons or touch screens (STB). The aim of this study is to evaluate the rate at which nosocomial infection accumulates in each control panel design type by taking swab...

Forward-Backward Translation and Psychometric Testing of Fugl-Meyer Assessment Scale for Igbo Stroke Survivors

Stroke survivors experience impaired motor function of affected limbs. However, improvements in motor function are possible and important as it helps reduce its negative effects on the activities of daily living, contributing to better quality of life. Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) is a tool for determining impaired motor functions. This has not been translated to Igbo language and so poses some restrictions for most...
