Gait Comparisons of Trans Tibial Amputees with Six Different Prosthetic Feet in Developing Countries
Lenka P,Kumar R
Indian Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , 2010,
Abstract: Gait study in amputees using prosthetic foot anklemechanisms used in developed countries have beenaddressed by many authors however very few have beendone in the developing countries. The objective of thisstudy was to compare gait parameter in six differentprosthetic feet in trans tibial amputees, commonly usedin developing countries. The stride parameter, verticalground reaction force, gait efficiency and quadricepsmuscle activities were studied in different feet usingComputer Dynography (CDG) gait analyzer. The rawdata of force and electromyogrpahy (EMG) sensors ofgait analyzer were filtered, processed and analyzed withhelp of MATLAB 7.0. A blue tooth enabled heart ratetelemetry system was used for calculating gait efficiencyin terms of physiological cost index (PCI). Seven youngand active male trans tibial amputees were recruited inthis study and each of them were tested with each of thefollowing prosthetic feet: Solid Ankle Cushioned Heel(SACH), Dynamic (Ottobock), Ranger, Jaipur,Greissinger and Regal. Results indicated that sound limbwas exposed to more ground reaction force than theprosthetic foot irrespective of the foot type. However,velocity, cadence and gait efficiency was higher inDynamic foot. The results of EMG analysis in quadricepsshowed that the subjects using Greissinger foot mimicthe muscle action of normal human locomotion.
Understanding Government Consumption
Lenka V. P?lpánová
Statistika : Statistics and Economy Journal , 2013,
Abstract: Government fi nal consumption represents one of the key indicators provided by national accounts, but at thesame time one with relatively problematic economic interpretation. Th e concept of government fi nal consumptionexpenditure involves a number of conventions. As a result, its economic and statistical character diff ersfrom other fi nal expenditure components in total economy like household consumption or investment. Th earticle explains how government fi nal consumption expenditure and actual fi nal consumption are defi nedand valued in national accounts, describes the borderline between individual and collective consumption expenditureand examines the relation between government fi nal consumption expenditure and governmenttotal expenditure. Th e concepts are illustrated in quantitative terms on the example of the Czech Republic.
Bifurcation diagram of a cubic three-parameter autonomous system
Lenka Barakova,Evgenii P. Volokitin
Electronic Journal of Differential Equations , 2005,
Abstract: In this paper, we study the cubic three-parameter autonomous planar system $$displaylines{ dot x_1 = k_1 + k_2x_1 - x_1^3 - x_2,cr dot x_2 = k_3 x_1 - x_2, }$$ where $k_2, k_3$ are greater than 0. Our goal is to obtain a bifurcation diagram; i.e., to divide the parameter space into regions within which the system has topologically equivalent phase portraits and to describe how these portraits are transformed at the bifurcation boundaries. Results may be applied to the macroeconomical model IS-LM with Kaldor's assumptions. In this model existence of a stable limit cycles has already been studied (Andronov-Hopf bifurcation). We present the whole bifurcation diagram and among others, we prove existence of more difficult bifurcations and existence of unstable cycles.

P. Lenka,D.N.Tiberwala
Al Ameen Journal of Medical Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Although force platform based Center of pressure (COP) measures of postural steadiness have been used to test the diagnostic significance of various cerebellar and labyrinthine lesions, but very few literature are available on amputees. The aim of this work is to measure the effect of stump length of Trance-Tibial amputee on postural steadiness during quiet stance. The COP variation, which is the major determinant of stability, has been evaluated. Twenty transtibial amputee patients (age: 34±9.57 years) participated in this study. Among them, ten patients were having stump length of (19.33±2.04 cm) and ten patients were having stump length of (9.2±0.91 cm). Postural stability is evaluated considering following factors like, AP range, ML range, RMS distance, mean distance, sway velocity, sway area and mean power frequency. The result shows that the mean value of all the measure parameters are having higher values in case of patients having shorter stump length than there counterpart. Therefore, it is concluded that transtibial amputee with longer stump length has better postural steadiness.
CULTURAL TOURISM IN MALAYSIA IN THE PERSPECTIVE OF INDIAN TOURISTS: A STUDY

Revista de Turism : Studii si Cercetari in Turism , 2010,
Abstract: Malaysia is one of the economic superpowers in South East Asia, prospering at a fast pace as tourism is becoming one of the most important sectors of its economy. Areas like entertainment; beach and island tourism has become some of the major determinants of Malaysia’s phenomenal progress in tourism in the last few years. Yet one area that seems to get less attention is its cultural resources. Recently, Malaysia has turned out as one of the major destinations for the Indian Outbound Tourism market. This study looks into the situation that prevails in the area of cultural tourism in Malaysia and how are cultural as well as historical attractions of Malaysia viewed from the perspective of international tourists from India. With the help of descriptive analysis the study probes into the significance of Malaysia’s historical tourism and the awareness and perception about it among Indian visitors. Based on the study it is revealed that Malaysia’s cultural tourism resources are not promoted to the extent to which it becomes a significant part of the nation’s destination image. Lack of promotion and information available makes international visitors unaware about the potential of Malaysia as a cultural tourism destination. However, most of the tourists were satisfied with the cultural sites/attractions and think Malaysia is a reasonably good cultural destination.

SPEAK YOUR MIND: SIMPLIFIED DEBATES AS A LEARNING TOOL AT THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL
LUSTIGOVá, Lenka
Journal on Efficiency and Responsibility in Education and Science , 2011,
Abstract: This study focuses on the development of speaking skills in intermediate and lower level university classes through the simplified format of debates. The aim of this paper is to describe teaching observations with special attention given to the preparatory stages, strengths and challenges of simplified debate faced by both the teacher and the students. Observations were made while teaching speaking through simple debate to 19 - 20 year-old-students of general English at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague in intermediate and lower level classes. By describing the methods and procedures used to engage in debates, this paper aims to enrich pedagogical methods for effectively teaching speaking skills and thus serve ESL teachers at large. By contextualizing debate within a milieu larger than the ESL classroom, this study also accesses possibilities for further application of simplified debate to heighten training for other subjects, while drawing upon the democratic context supported by debate.
Research activity of the youth in Ljubljana and librarians

Knji?nica : Revija za Podro?je Bibliotekarstva in Informacijske Znanosti , 2000,
Abstract: The collected data on the research activity in primary and secondary schools of Ljubljana shows that the majority of schools enable their students to engage in these activities. The research covers all fields of science, although the definitions of these have not been uniform, which renders them incomparable with each other, particularly when the researcher is followed up through different periods of life. The support available for this activity is relatively good, as compared to its insufficient promotion and use, not only in schools and libraries but also in a broader environment. The mentorship in research projects should also include librarians of different library types, participating in the research activity of the youth on an equal footing, as co-mentors. Adequate knowledge of the research activity of the youth along with permanent education of both mentors and librarians should contribute to quantitative and qualitative advances in the acquisition and use of different publications and other sources of information. By adopting uniform criteria for work and definition of youth research processes we could obtain more professionally relevant and comparable results.

Abstract: The paper emphasizes the importance of research work for the development of independence, creativity and inventiveness in adolescents. The central part presents the spread of research activities carried out by young researchers in Slovenia and touches upon problems they encounter when preparing their research reports.The role of the school (teachers) and libraries (librarians) as promoters of successful research work of youth is pointed out. This type of activity can also be regarded as one of the important factors influencing linkage of different libraries and user structures. In the conclusion, certain possibilities for active engagement of librarians in the adolescenfs research are outlined.
