Automated weighing technology : process solutions by Ralph Closs( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weighing technology by its very nature suggests something solid and substantial, which is exactly what you get from Siemens - and a whole lot more. From the rugged requirements of a mine to the delicate measurements of pharmaceutical suppliers, Siemens weighing technology provides accurate weight measurement whether the material is on the go or standing still. The unmatched performance of the Siemens Milltronics Single Idler (MSI) leads the way, supported by the whole Siemens line of belt scales, weighfeeders, and flowmeters. These contact instruments provide the data which is then interpreted by Siemens integrators like the SITRANS BW500 and the SIWAREX FTC module. Siemens weighing solutions are supported by peripheral devices and equipment like speed sensors, test chains, and the Milltronics Weight Lifter (MWL). Furthermore, solutions are often custom designed by Siemens technical staff and application engineers to ensure optimal performance. Siemens provides complete weighing solutions for many industries from food and beverage to pharmaceuticals and environmental systems. However, the mining, aggregate, and cement industry is a primary focus where Siemens rugged reliability and accuracy play a key role. When experts ask about the best in the weighing field, the answer is clearly Siemens
The effectiveness of rocker sole shoes in chronic low back pain by Catharine Siân MacRae( )

Shoes with a rocker sole are marketed as reducing low back pain. There is minimal evidence to support these claims. This investigation compared rocker sole shoes to flat sole shoes in people with chronic low back pain (CLBP). The thesis reports findings of a randomised clinical trial and a series of biomechanical experiments. Following preparatory pilot and reliability studies, 115 people with CLBP were randomised to wear rocker sole shoes or flat sole shoes; all participants attended an exercise and education programme. Participants were assessed without knowledge of group allocation pre-randomisation, at six weeks, six months, and one year (main outcome point). Primary outcome was the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ). Analysis was by intention-to-treat. Biomechanical experiments recruited 20 participants from the main study and investigated effects of wearing rocker sole and flat sole shoes on standing balance and gait, immediately and after 6 months of shoe wear, using centre of pressure and motion-analysis derived kinetic, kinematic and spatio-temporal measures. Balance and gait in people with and age-and gender-matched controls without CLBP were compared. Rocker sole shoes were no more beneficial than flat sole shoes for CLBP patients; flat sole shoes were more beneficial in a sub-group of CLBP aggravated by standing or walking. Biomechanical studies found rocker sole shoes introduced immediately greater postural instability than flat sole shoes but neither shoe had long-term training effects on postural control. Furthermore, although both shoes resulted in small immediate changes in kinetic, kinematic and spatio-temporal parameters of shod gait, neither shoe had long-term training effects on these parameters in barefoot gait. Finally, in contrast to some previous research, postural control during standing, and kinetics, kinematic, and spatio-temporal parameters during gait were similar between people with and without CLBP
