... Impairment of the facial nerve has functional, aesthetic, and emotional impacts which can lead to social isolation and depression [1]. Assessment of facial motions remains a challenge because it involves a high number of short muscle groups, often difficult to locate and with a small range of motion (ROM) [2,3]. Besides, each face is unique in terms of dimensions, proportions, and even degree of symmetry. ...
... Oxygen uptake by the leg is theoretically calculated as the product of "arterial blood flow in the working leg" and the arteriovenous oxygen difference in the exercising leg. Thus, an evaluation of leg blood flow (LBF) dynamics feeding the contracting major thigh muscles to the incremental workload can contribute to [27]. This initial brief report involved an unexpected result with no significant thigh LBF increases in the AL using a PTB prosthesis during incremental absolute/relative peak muscle contraction (workload), although workload-dependent LBF increases were seen in the non-AL, which was in agreement with previous findings. ...
