A heated/cooled chair was evaluated for its effect on thermal sensation and comfort.  Thirty college students participated in 120 1.75-hour tests. Two heated/cooled chairs were placed in an environmental chamber which simulates an office environment. The chamber temperatures were set at 16, 18, 25 and 29 °C. During the tests the subjects had full control of the chair surface temperature through a knob located on the desk. An additional 64 tests with sixteen subjects were conducted at the same four temperatures but with regular mesh or cushion chairs in order to provide reference results for comparison.   Subjective responses about thermal sensation, comfort, and temperature satisfaction were obtained at 20 minute intervals and four times before, during, and after a break period. The chair’s energy consumption was monitored ...
Il saggio prende in considerazione This is a Chair di Caryl Churchill (Royal Court Theatre, Londra 1997) e analizza come l'autrice coniughi surrealismo e teatro epico per portare al centro della scena una sua personalissima riflessione sulle modalità di rappresentazione nella società contemporanea.

An open-label randomized controlled trial was conducted to clarify the effect of eldecalcitol (ED) on body balance and muscle power in postmenopausal osteoporotic women treated with bisphosphonates. A total of 106 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis (mean age 70.8 years) were randomly divided into two groups (n=53 in each group): a bisphosphonate group (control group) and a bisphosphonate plus ED group (ED group). Biochemical markers, unipedal standing time (body balance), and five-repetition chair-rising time (muscle power) were evaluated. The duration of the study was 6 months. Ninety-six women who completed the trial were included in the subsequent analyses. At baseline, the age, body mass index, bone mass indices, bone turnover markers, unipedal standing time, and chair-rising time did not differ significantly between the two gr...
BACKGROUND: A rapid chair-side test based on the immunological detection of elevated levels of collagenase-2 (matrix metalloproteinase-8, MMP-8) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) was developed to identify and monitor the course and treatment of adult periodontitis. METHODS: MMP-8 was determined in GCF from periodontitis (11 patients, 90 sites), gingivitis (10 patients, 58 sites) and healthy control (8 patients, 59 sites) sites (i) by a test stick incorporating monoclonal antibodies to two epitopes on MMP-8 and (ii) by measuring MMP-8 concentration by a quantitative immunofluorometric assay. Patients with adult periodontitis were treated by scaling and root planing (SRP) and received oral hygiene instructions. GCF MMP-8 testing and clinical measurements were done before and after SRP. RESULTS: MMP-8 GCF levels and chair-side...
The effects of external water pressure on intercompartmental fluid volume shifts and endocrine responses in man are investigated. Extracellular fluid volumes and plasma and urine electrolyte and endocrine responses of four male subjects were measured during eight hours of head-out water immersion and 16 hours of recovery bed rest and compared to responses obtained during eight hours of chair rest and 16 hours of bed rest without external hydrostatic pressure obtained in the same subjects five months later. Immersion is found to result in a substantial diuresis with respect to chair rest, accounted for by decreases in extracellular volume. A negative water balance during immersion and a positive water balance during chair rest were observed to be accompanied by a shift of extracellular volume to the intracellular compartment, as well as...
Si la béatitude éternelle consiste à voir Dieu, les facultés supérieures de l'âme devraient y suffire. Quel besoin dans ces conditions de la résurrection de la chair ? Cette doctrine ne constitue-t-elle pas pourtant une composante de première importance de la différence entre l'espérance chrétienne et celle des philosophes ? Quel sens donner alors à la décision doctrinale de Benoît XII en 1336 selon laquelle les âmes des bienheureux suffisamment purifiées voient Dieu sans intermédiaire, et cela dès à présent, sans attendre la résurrection et le jugement final ? Nous proposons ici des éléments de réflexion situant vision béatifique et résurrection de la chair au cœur de la recherche philosophique menée par les auteurs chrétiens de l'Antiquité tardive et du Moyen Age. Nous partirons d'Augustin et de sa conscience que la résurrection de l...
TAYLOR CHAIR CO., headquartered in BEDFORD, is the oldest business still in existence in Northeast Ohio and is believed to be the oldest company in the United States still owned by the same family. Taylor Chair originated in 1816 when Benjamin Franklin Fitch began making split-bottom, slat-backed chairs by hand at his cabin located at what is now the corner of Libby and Warrensville Ctr. Roads. Fitch's chairs were superior to others, partly because he used preshrunk materials combining green and dry lumber so that they would not creak. Later he invented the strap lathe, which subsequently became a standard machine in the furniture industry. As demand increased, Fitch added workmen to his staff, including Wm. O. Taylor, who had come to the WESTERN RESERVE from Charlemont, MA, in 1831. Taylor soon became Fitch's assistant and in 1841, hi...
