Abstract: objectives: to analyze aspects related with wheelchair propulsion. materials and methods: in order to delineate this review the search for information was carried out within electronics databases, using the following descriptors: "wheelchair propulsion", "wheelchair biomechanics" e "wheelchair users". full papers published in english and french were included in the study. results: the wheelchair propulsion is a complex movement that requires the execution of repeated bi manual forces applications during a short time period. in this movement high levels of force must be produced due to the bad mechanical performance of the wheelchair. could be characterized that wheelchair users are not satisfied with their wheelchair, the places are not adapted to their presence and lack of specific criteria for the adjustment of this equipment. the main points to look at are the seat height in relation to elbow flexion (100-120 degrees) with his hand in the propulsion rim and tire pressure. the semicircular mode of technique propulsion seems to be more appropriate; in this pattern the wheelchair user returns his hand under the rim after propulsion. efforts in wheelchairs are high and the incidence of injuries in wheelchair users is high. conclusion: one can conclude that in spite of researchers’ efforts there are still many divergences between topics and methods of evaluation, what makes difficult to apply the experimental results to the wheelchairs users’ daily life.

Brazilian Journal of Plant Physiology , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1677-04202005000300005
Abstract: we examine the hypothesis that the chlorophyll a fluorescence technique can be an efficient tool to support the selection of species adapted to high irradiance and therefore, suitable for use in initial rehabilitation projects of degraded areas. the experiment was conducted at the pedro de moura operational base, amazonas, brazil. the fluorescence transients were obtained using a portable fluorometer for leaves of bombacopsis macrocalyx (bm), eugenia cumini (ec), iryanthera macrophyla (im) and senna reticulata (sr), which were subjected to high irradiance between 12:00 am and 1:00 p.m. using the ojip test, the following were calculated: performance index (piabs), density of reaction centres per cross section (rc/cs), maximum efficiency of photosystem ii (fpo), and probability of energy excitation (yo) or that an absorbed photon (feo) moves an electron beyond quinone a. the highest value of piabs was found in ec (0.40) while the lowest values were found in bm (0.08) and im (0.06). these low values of piabs in bm and im were a result of the low values for rc/cs (121 for bm; 142 for im) and fpo (0.50 for bm; 0.48 for im) when compared to the values in ec (rc/cs=303; fpo=0.72) and sr (rc/cs=326; fpo=0.73). it was also observed that in sr the decrease in piabs when compared with ec resulted from a low value of yo, which was 32 % lower than the value found in ec. regarding the piabs per plant, ec had the largest number of individuals with high performance while im and bm had the largest numbers of individuals with low performance. in conclusion, the chlorophyll a fluorescence technique enabled the evaluation of the photochemical performance of plants in the field, in turn permitting the selection of species most suitable for rehabilitation of degraded areas.

Abstract: Objective: As isolates of Cryptococcus are frequently kept collection stocks in institutions, sometimes without proper characterization, we sought to determine the genotype profiles, protease and phospholipase activities “in vitro” and the susceptibility testing for azoles and amphotericin B. Methodology: 84 isolates from several regions of Brazil (40 samples from clinical origin and 44 isolates from environmental origin) were maintained at the microorganism’s bank of the Biomedical Science Institute (ICB-USP) of the São Paulo University, in São Paulo, Brazil. This isolates was submitted fungal strains determination, DNA extraction and purification, determination of genotype by URA5 gene RFLP of CGB-positive isolates, protease and phospholipase activity and susceptibility to antifungals. Results: Of six CGB positive isolates tested by RFLP-PCR, only four presented a genomic profile consistent C. gattii species (VGII), while two other were C. neoformans (VNI and VNIII), indicating the existence of canavanine-resistante C. neoformans isolates in the culture collections. The clinical isolates secreted higher levels of phospholipase and environmental isolates but no differences were observed for the protease levels. Almost all isolates were sensible to azoles and amphotericin B. Conclusion: We point out in this research the existence of C. neoformans strains resistant to canavanine and intrinsic characteristic of C. gatti. These results demonstrate the importance to perform a detailed characterization of isolates kept in culture collections.
