Abstract
: Preamble. Billions of people are using cell phone devices on the planet, essentially in poor posture. The purpose of this study is to assess the forces incrementally seen by the cervical spine as the head is tilted forward, into worsening posture. This data is also necessary for cervical spine surgeons to understand in the reconstruction of the neck.

This study reports the creation and validation of a stimulus set of affective body postures that includes pain. Pain can be communicated nonverbally through facial expressions, vocalisations, and bodily movements. Most studies have focussed on the facial display of pain, whereas there is little research on postural display. Stimulus sets for facial and vocal expressions of pain have been developed, but there is no equivalent for body‐based expressions. Reported here is the development of a new s...

Adolescents make constant use of technologies, which can lead to overuse of the screen. These in turn generate mental consequences, such as stress and anxiety, which are triggering factors of bruxism. Considering this, this cross-sectional study aimed to analyze the association between bruxism and screen time in 236 adolescents, aged between 14 and 19 years of both sexes, high school students from public schools. Data were collected through questions contained in the National School Health Surve...

Objective null The aim of this study was to evaluate our experience with a high-definition 3-dimensional (3D) exoscope (EX) for cervical spine surgery versus a binocular operating microscope (OM). null null null Methods null A retrospective review of patients undergoing a single-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) procedure for the treatment of cervical myelopathy from March 2019 to May 2020 was performed. Demographic, perioperative, and clinical outcomes of 50 patients were inc...

Exoscopic surgery promises alleviation of physical strain, improved intraoperative visualization and facilitation of the clinical workflow. In this prospective observational study, we investigate the clinical usability of a novel 3D4K-exoscope in routine neurosurgical interventions. Questionnaires on the use of the exoscope were carried out. Exemplary cases were additionally video-documented. All participating neurosurgeons (n = 10) received initial device training. Changing to a conventional mi...

Abstract Objectives Neck and low back pains are the leading causes of years lived with disability, and using computers or mobile devices in excess could be risk factors for back pain. Our aim was to evaluate the association of the length of time using computers and mobile devices with neck, mid-back and low back pains and the number of regions with pain. Study design Cross-sectional study nested in the 1993 Pelotas birth cohort with young adults aged 22 years. Methods Outcomes analyzed were neck...

OBJECTIVE Microsurgery using conventional optical microscopes or surgical loupes features a limited field of view and imposes a serious strain on surgeons especially during long surgeries. Here we advocate the micro- and macro-borderless surgery (MMBS) using a novel high-resolution (4K) three-dimensional (3D) video system. This study aimed to confirm the applicability of this concept in several surgical procedures. METHODS We evaluated the possible use and efficacy of MMBS in the following exper...

Abstract Smartphone use is a risk factor for both neck and shoulder musculoskeletal disorders. The objective of this study was to evaluate an ergonomic arm support prototype device, which may help improve posture while using a smartphone, by determining its effect on muscle activity, muscle fatigue, and neck and shoulder discomfort. Twenty-four healthy young adult smartphone users performed 20 min of smartphone game playing under two different conditions, smartphone use with support prototype de...
