    Expanding medical knowledge increases the potential risk of medical errors in clinical practice. We present, OPAD, a clinical decision support systemin the field of the medical care of osteoporosis. We utilize clinical information from international ...
  • Widmer Soyka, René P.; Benedikt Helgason; Hazrati Marangalou, Javad; van den Bergh, Joop P.; Rietbergen, Bert van; Ferguson, Stephen J. (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2016-04-21)
    Vertebral fragility fractures are often treated by injecting bone cement into the collapsed vertebral bodies (vertebroplasty). The mechanisms by which vertebroplasty induces pain relief are not completely understood yet and recent debates cast doubt ...

    Bone area is one measure of bone size that is easily derived from dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans. In a GWA study of DXA bone area of the hip and lumbar spine (N ≥ 28,954), we find thirteen independent association signals at twelve loci ...
  • Baldursdottir, Bergthora; Whitney, Susan L.; Ramel, Alfons; Jónsson, Pálmi V.; Mogensen, Brynjólfur; Petersen, Hannes; Kristinsdóttir, Ella K. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-02-11)
    Background: Asymmetric vestibular function, decreased plantar sensation, postural control and functional ability have been associated with fall-related wrist fractures. Objective: To investigate whether multi-sensory training (MST) improves postural ...

    Falls to the side are the leading cause of hip fractures in the elderly. The load that a person experiences during a fall cannot be measured with volunteers for ethical reasons. To evaluate injurious loads, while considering relevant energy input and ...

    The majority of hip fractures have been reported to occur as a result of a fall with impact to the greater trochanter of the femur. Recently, we developed a novel cadaveric pendulum-based hip impact model and tested two cadaveric femur-pelvis constructs, ...
  • Baldursdottir, Bergthora (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-03)
    Aims: The aim of this thesis was to evaluate the effects of a new multi-sensory balance training program: the “Reykjavik Model” among unsteady older adults as well as middle aged and elderly people with wrist fractures. Additionally, to explore the ...
