Ballet includes repetitive rotational maneuvers often combined with hip hyperflexion or extension as in tennis, basketball, and netball.
DAs of the ICA can occur spontaneously or in association with various etiological factors including craniomaxillofacial trauma, head and neck surgeries, hyperextension or hyperflexion of the neck, fibromuscular dysplasia, and connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers-Danlos and Marfan syndromes.
In upright wheels, mice do not run in a planar pattern, which can potentially cause ventral arching of the spine and hyperflexion of the tail, altering the animal locomotor abilities (16).
The mechanism is usually from a low energy fall resulting in a hyperflexion
Too little power and they may experience the same metabolic effects of those using passive prostheses, but too much and they may experience problems such as knee hyperflexion and increased energy absorption in the knee that can raise the metabolic impacts of the user.
Therefore, in an attempt to attain a higher range of motion, new designs with modifications in the femoral component and polyethylene geometry were developed for allowing hyperflexion. However, the benefit of the femoral component designs allowing hyperflexion is debatable (5-7).
When the patient was admitted to our inpatient clinic, she had steppage gait with hyperflexion of the hip and knee joints.
The sequences performed in normal position and hyperflexion of cervical spine included Sagittal SE T1W with and without fat saturation, TSE T2, Gradient Echo T2 and MR myelogram in sagittal and coronal planes.
1) was performed respecting the following conditions and elements: the parturient is lying supine with her legs leaning laterally on the bed side rails, her pelvis is lifted, without leg hyperflexion, thus reducing additional perineal strain, or in another labor position enabling MRMPP; fetal head must 'fit' onto the perineum without turning back to the vagina in-between labor pains, thus gradually opening vaginal introitus.
In the physical examination presented anterior (predominantly located anteromedially) and posterior ankle pain (positive ankle hyperflexion plantar test).
Vertical axis of the lateral view of the popliteus test: assess the normality, the hyperflexion and the hyperextension of the knees viewed sideways.
in 1960 demonstrated experimentally that the forces responsible for anterior dislocation were a combination of hyperflexion, axial rotation, and compression [33].
