    Muscle volume is an important indicator for the strength of the muscle. Many biomedical scientists use the muscle volume as an index for the athlete muscle power and also the health condition of the patients with muscular problems. The purpose of this study is to develop a sensor to easily and accurately gauge human upper limb muscle volume for biomedical : Long Tao Wang, Jiao Yang, Xue Wei Zhang, Chao Yuan. A system for measuring blood volume in a culture bottle using digital scales was designed. The suggested system was installed and evaluated in the Department of Laboratory Medicine. During the month period, the weight of blood bottles before inoculation and blood volumes in blood culture bottles were by: 1.

    Units of length. The Egyptian cubit, the Indus Valley units of length referred to above and the Mesopotamian cubit were used in the 3rd millennium BC and are the earliest known units used by ancient peoples to measure length. The units of length used in ancient India included the dhanus, or dhanush (bow), the krosa (cry, or cow-call) and the yojana (stage). Using the Tape Measure. Measure in cm. Place the tape measure flat on the body. The tape measure should be stretched out and not slack. If the segment to be measured is irregular or conical in shape, the proximal part of the tape should be flat. When measuring circumference, surround the body part without undue constricting pressure.

Sources of residual limb volume change. A prerequisite for total contact and good coupling (high stiffness) of the prosthetic socket/residual limb interface is a constant residual limb volume [].There are different sources of residual limb volume change, all of which may influence socket fit and function: generalized post-operative edema resulting from surgery and/or injury to the limb [8 Cited by:

Department of Mechanical Engineering.]. Background: Accurate limb volume measurement is key in the assessment of outcomes in lymphedema microsurgery. There are two commonly used methods as follows: manual circumferential measurement (tape) or Perometer measurement.

There are no data on the intra- and interclass correlation of either method, making it difficult to establish a gold standard of limb volume by: 9.

The development and evaluation of a new tool called the computerized limb volume measurement system (CLEMS) is described.

The shape and volume of a limb or limb segment can be rapidly measured by CLEMS, independent of limb position. The limb volumes generated by CLEMS were compared to volumes determined by water displacement and by a tape by: Background: Accurate limb volume measurement is key in the assessment of outcomes in lymphedema microsurgery.

There are two commonly used methods as follows: manual circumferential measurement. Interchangeable use of methods. Development of limb volume measuring system book tape measure and the perometer methods for limb volume measurement are not directly interchangeable. Although the mean difference in limb volume between the two methods is clinically acceptable ( ml), however the 95% confidence interval may be too wide (95% CI: − ml to ml).Cited by: measure directly volume changes in a limb, any further advances in the technique for recording such changes must depend on the development of methods for recording the changes of limb weight or of limb dimensions.

Changes of limb weight would be directly proportional to changes of limb volume, and such changes have been recorded in the past Cited by: The AM-ULA is a new measure of activity performance for adults with upper limb amputation that considers task completion, speed, movement quality, skillfulness of prosthetic use, and independence in its rating system.

It is felt that a more accurate limb volume system which is insensitive to environmental factors will aid in better quantification of the hemodynamics of the leg.

Author: P. Bhagat and P. Kadaba. INTRODUCTION: Determining limb volume and its change based on tape-measure measurements of limb circumference (girth) is routinely done to assess efficacy of lymphedema therapy and other conditions for which limb volume changes are of importance.

A typical generic procedure is schematized in Figure 1 that depicts manual girth measurements and File Size: 1MB. Measuring upper limb volume is crucial in patients to detect disease progression and to study the effects of treatment. The aim is to assess the validity and reliability of a newly developed system, Peracutus Aqua Meth, for measuring the upper limb volume compared with the gold standard water volumetry device.

(In this study, the Bravometer was. Limb volume measurements are used for evaluating growth of muscle mass and effectivity of strength training. Beside sport sciences, it is used e.g. for detection of oedemas, lymphedemas or carcinomas or for examinations of muscle atrophy.

There are several commonly used methods, but there is a lack of clear comparison, which shows their advantages and by: 8. The tape measure method is unreliable because it is difficult to position the tape measure on a swollen limb. The development and evaluation of a new tool called the computerized limb volume measurement system (CLEMS) is described.

The shape and volume of a limb or limb segment can be rapidly measured by CLEMS, independent of limb position. The wide variety of methods described in the literature for evaluating limb volume and lack of standardization makes it difficult for the clinician to assess the at-risk limb.

Options include water displacement, tape measurement, infrared scanning, and bioelectrical impedance measures. By measuring the position of the elevator and the depth of the water with the residual limb immerged, the segmental volumes as well as the total volume of the residual limb could be measured.

A similar method using an overflow mechanism was also attempted (11). SANDERS and FATONE.
