  • Optimal estimation of complex aerial movements using dynamic optimization 

    Venne, André; Bailly, François; Charbonneau, Eve; Dowling-Medley, Jennifer; Begon, Mickaël (Routledge, 2022-06-01)
    When estimating full-body motion from experimental data, inverse kinematics followed by inverse dynamics does not guarantee dynamical consistency of the resulting motion, especially in movements where the trajectory depends heavily on the initial state, ...
  • Gait adaptations of individuals with cerebral palsy on irregular surfaces : a scoping review 

    Dussault-Picard, Cloé; Mohammadyari, S.G.; Arvisais, Denis; Robert, M.T.; Dixon, Philippe (Elsevier, 2022-05-10)
    Background Individuals with cerebral palsy (CP) have a reduced ability to perform motor tasks such as walking. During daily walking, they are confronted with environmental constraints such as irregular surfaces (e.g., relief and uneven surfaces) which ...
  • Amino acids, ammonia, and hepatic encephalopathy 

    Kroupina, Katerina; Bémeur, Chantal; Rose, Christopher (Elsevier, 2022-04-30)
    Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a decline in brain function arising due to liver insufficiency. The liver's diminished capacity to clear ammonia, and the subsequent accumulation of it, is highly implicated in pathogenesis of HE. Ammonia is endogenously ...
  • Renal dysfunction independently predicts muscle mass loss in patients following liver transplantation 

    Nguyen, Mimosa; Mukaneza, Yvette; Tremblay, Mélanie; Huard, Geneviève; Tang, An; Rose, Christopher; Bémeur, Chantal (University of Toronto Press, 2022-05-02)
    Liver transplantation (LT) is the only curative treatment for cirrhosis. However, the presence of complications can impact outcomes following LT. Sarcopenia, or muscle mass loss, is highly prevalent in patients with cirrhosis and is associated with ...
  • Myélinisation des projections corticales visuelles de la souris 

    Roy, Jolanie (2022-01-18)
    La gaine de myéline qui entoure les axones joue plusieurs rôles, comme l’accélération de la propagation de l’influx nerveux, la synchronisation des aires corticales, la plasticité, un support métabolique, etc. Sa dégénérescence lors de certaines ...
  • Évaluation de la mesure À l’école, on bouge! : quels sont les facteurs qui ont favorisé son implantation dans les écoles primaires du Québec? 

    Desranleau Robitaille, Noémie (2022-01-18)
    Le manque d’activité physique chez les jeunes est un enjeu préoccupant de santé publique en Amérique du Nord. Afin de s’attaquer au problème de sédentarité des jeunes, certains gouvernements des provinces canadiennes ont mis en place des programmes ...
  • Amélioration continue des processus du volet exploitation du Service de génie biomédical au CISSS des Laurentides 

    Coderre, Vincent (2021-08-25)
    Dans le cadre du programme de maîtrise en génie biomédical – option génie clinique, l’étudiant est amené à explorer l’environnement de travail des techniciens en génie biomédical pour le Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) des ...
  • Optimal forward twisting pike somersault without self-collision 

    Charbonneau, Eve; Bailly, François; Begon, Mickaël (Routledge & International Society of Biomechanics in Sports, 2022-03-23)
    In acrobatic sports, twisting fast before piking allows athletes to enlarge their scoring potential. Since planning the arm and hip movements to twist fast is unintuitive, optimal control appears as a powerful and risk-free tool. To our knowledge, ...
  • Heretical thoughts into hepatic encephalopathy 

    Jalan, Rajiv; Rose, Christopher (Elsevier & European Association for the Study of the Liver, 2022-03-27)
    Clinical progress in the development of new diagnostic modalities and therapeutic strategies for the management of patients with hepatic encephalopathy has lagged behind the vast knowledge that has been generated from basic studies. In this article, ...
  • Telehealth for people who inject drugs : An acceptable method of treatment but challenging to access 

    Delisle-Reda, Samuel; Bruneau, Julie; Martel-Laferrière, Valérie (Routledge, 2022-02-08)
    Background: While telemedicine is seen as an emerging practice that will outlast the COVID-19 pandemic, it can reduce health services for those with limited internet and technological devices access or sufficient literacy. Objective(s): The a ...
