RESUMO

Objetivos: identificar como os homens e com quem eles aprenderam o cuidado com o corpo. Método: o método assumido nesta investigação foi o cartográfico-qualitativo. O contexto escolhido foi uma escola estadual e uma instituição superior de ensino localizado no município de Boa Vista, onde estão inseridos homens adolescentes e adultos. A estratégia para produção dos dados envolveu encontros coletivos com 30 homens, denominados de assembleias, onde ocorreu a indução de discussões coletivas e modelagens sobre corpo e cuidado. Resultados: foram produzidas 282 unidades de registros. Destacamos como principais cuidados: tomar banho, escovação de dentes, lavagem das genitálias, prática de exercícios físicos, corte de cabelos e unhas. Sobre o aprendizado das ações de cuidar os homens sinalizaram as mães, pais, avós, escola e, por fim, sozinhos. Conclusão: os homens sofreram variados agenciamentos e indicam temas para o cuidado de enfermagem que são de ordem filosófico-existencial, filosófico-clínico e filosófico-espacial

RESUMO

La confusión terminológica que rodea a la Expresión Corporal, no estando claro qué palabras en inglés le corresponden, limita la difusión y avance científico de la disciplina. Este artículo pretende analizar los términos más utilizados en inglés para referirse a ella. Para determinarlos, se realizó una revisión bibliográfica en cinco bases de datos, seguida de una búsqueda en la base de datos Web of ScienceTM desde 1900 hasta 2018 con los diez términos seleccionados. Los resultados mostraron un crecimiento exponencial en la mayoría de términos. Predomina el inglés como idioma y el área de "Psicología". Aunque no parece existir consenso en la denominación en inglés de esta disciplina, el término más utilizado en español, portugués y francés, Corporal Expression, no se corresponde con el significado en inglés. Los términos más relacionados y recomendados a utilizar en traducciones y búsquedas son Creative Movement, Creative Dance, Expressive Movement y Physical Theatre

The terminological confusion surrounding the Expressive Movement and Creative Dance, with no English words clearly corresponding to it, restricts the dissemination and scientific progress of the discipline. This article examines the English terms most frequently used for it. To determine them, a literature review was conducted on five databases, followed by a search on Web of ScienceTM­ a database covering from 1900 to 2018, using the ten selected terms. Results showed exponential growth in most terms. English prevails as the main language and 'Psychology' as the main the area. Although there seems to be no consensus about the English term for the discipline, the most frequently choices in Spanish, Portuguese and French ­ literally, Corporal Expression ­ does not correspond to the English meaning. The most related and recommended terms to be used in translations and searches are Creative Movement, Creative Dance, Expressive Movement and Physical Theatre

RESUMO

Considerando a possibilidade da participação das atividades físicas na construção de características físicas como força e rigidez muscular por homens trans, este estudo buscou analisar a relação dos homens trans com as atividades físicas no processo de "masculinização". Participaram do estudo oito homens trans que fazem uso dos serviços oferecidos pelo Ambulatório de Saúde integral para Travestis e Transexuais na cidade de João Pessoa/PB, que foram submetidos a uma entrevista semiestruturada e um questionário socioeconômico, analisados com base na proposta de Bicudo para a análise fenomenológica. Este estudo concluiu que os entrevistados fazem uso das atividades físicas em busca do ganho de massa corporal e definição muscular, aspectos que na visão deles remetem a um corpo masculino, reforçando não apenas a sua masculinidade, mas ajudando na construção da sua identidade sexual


Considering the possibility of participating in physical activities to build physical characteristics such as strength and muscular rigidity by transsexual men, this study analyzed the latter's relationship with physical activities in the process of "masculinization". Subjects were eight transsexual male users of the services provided by the Total Health Care Ambulatory for Transvestites and Transsexuals in the city of João Pessoa, Paraíba. They answered socioeconomic questionnaires and semi-structured interviews, later submitted to Bicudo's Phenomenological analysis proposal. This study concluded that respondents used physical activities to increase body mass and muscle definition ­ aspects that, in their views, refer to a masculine body, not only reinforcing their masculinity but also helping them to build their sexual identity

RESUMO

Cet article a comme objectif comprendre la construction du corps par le bodybuilding. Il s'agit d'une étude de terrain qui a permis d'interviewer des bodybuilders du nord-est du Brésil. Des entretiens de type semi-structuré ont été réalisés avec un échantillon de huit hommes et deux femmes. Nous avons procédé à une analyse de contenu des entretiens. Les résultats ont permis d'identifier des usages différenciés du bodybuilding en lien avec les expériences passées du corps, les modes d'engagement et le sexe. Si la souffrance évoquée pour expliquer son engagement dans la pratique est individuelle, l'adhésion à de nouvelles normes de construction du corps se fait par un collectif de personnes qui conduisent à normaliser la consommation de substances pharmacologiques


This article looks into the construction of the body by bodybuilding. It is a field study interviewing bodybuilders in North-eastern Brazil. Semi-structured Interviews were conducted with a sample of eight men and two women and underwent content analysis. The results allowed identifying various uses of bodybuilding regarding subjects' past experiences with their bodies, modes commitment to the practice, and sex. If the suffering evoked to explain their commitment is individual, adherence to new standards of construction of the body takes place through a collective of people who lead to normalization of consumption of pharmacological substances

RESUMO

RESUMO: Este artigo aborda as manifestações da histeria na contemporaneidade, retomando os conceitos de corpo e sintoma como construções subjetivas do sujeito psíquico, nos constructos de Freud e Lacan. Do corpo, nas neuroses clássicas, ao corpo nas neuroses hoje, surge a questão da diferença na apresentação dos sintomas neuróticos. Propomos o conceito de histeria rígida de Lacan para compreender os sintomas histéricos apresentados hoje, como formações do agenciamento de gozo do corpo pelo registro real, afastando-se das histerias clássicas freudianas de ordenamento simbólico. Esta modalidade histérica requer um tratamento clínico orientado pelo real, exigindo outras posições de escuta.


Abstract: This article addresses the manifestations of hysteria in the contemporary world retaking the concepts of body and symptom, as subjective constructions of the psychic subject, in the constructs of Freud and Lacan's theories. From the body, in the classic neuroses, to the body in the neuroses today, the question arises of the difference in the presentation of the neurotic symptoms. We propose the concept of Lacan's rigid hysteria to understand the hysterical symptoms presented today as formations of agency of enjoyment of the body by the real record, moving away from the classic Freudian hysteria of symbolic ordering. This hysterical modality requires a clinical treatment guided by the real registry, requiring other listening positions.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Excursions in natural sciences education are justified in the current school system and within the scope of subject focus. The research aimed to observe the immediate impact of demonstration of the human dissection and excursion on the formation of ideas of students about the human body systems. METHODS: The experiment involved the first Slovak demonstration of a real human autopsy for students of the Biology Teaching Department (PdF TU in Trnava). Concepts of the structure of the human body were analyzed before and after experimental impact by a projective technique. The evaluation included the representation, description, and abundance of organs in the view of various systems. The subject of the research were also the questions focused on the use of illustrative procedures and tools in the educational process. RESULTS: Significant statistical differences were found in the group affected by human autopsy in understanding of the digestive, urinary, and locomotor systems. Conversely, the skin, endocrine glands, and lymphatic system were the least represented by the experimental groups. CONCLUSION: Considering the presented results, using different organizational forms and aids (real and virtual) is essential for bringing a positive educational effect on the studied problem (Tab. 1, Fig. 5, Ref. 20).

RESUMO

Under the revised demand of theoretic development in clinical practice and scientific research of acupuncture and moxibustion, the reconstruction of the theory was discussed on the "three yin and three yang" subarea division in the body and acupuncture effect in line with the traditional thinking of Chinese medicine so as to explore the longitudinal foundation and rule in the human body for the "effective stimulation". ①Based on the theory of "qi-space correlation" in Internal Classic and the source of nomenclature of "three yin and three yang", the body is divided in stereo zone in accordance with the theory of "three yin and three yang". ②In view of theoretical reasoning and practical interpretation, it is expounded that the same longitudinal stereo zone subarea in the body could respond to diseases and generate therapeutic effects. ③It is pointed out that the subareas of "three yin and three yang" in the body are closely related to meridians and collaterals, which is the basis of the spatial structure and and physical effect. The importance of the "body" itself is ignored nowadays because of the conventional thinking of "qi and blood" in traditional Chinese medicine.

RESUMO

Current medical facilities usually lead to a very high cost especially for developing countries, rural areas and mass casualty incidents. Therefore, advanced electronic health systems are gaining momentum. In this paper, we first compared our novel off the shelf experimental wired Body Sensor Networks (BSN), that is, Digital First Aid (DigiAID) with the existing commercial product called as Hexoskin. We showed the viability of DigiAID through extensive real measurements during daily activities by both male and females. It was found that the major hurdle was wires to be worn by the subjects. Accordingly, we proposed and characterized the wireless DigiAID platform for wireless BSN (WBSN). Understanding the effect of body movements on wireless data transmission in WBSN is also of major importance. Therefore, this paper comprehensively evaluates and analyzes the impact of body movements, (a) to ensure transmission of data at different radio power levels and (b) its impact on the topology of the WBSN. Based on this we have proposed a dynamic power control algorithm that adapts the transmitting power according to the packet reception in an energy efficient manner. The results show that we have achieved substantial power savings at various nodes attached to the human body.

RESUMO

Humans are increasingly aware that their fate will depend on the wisdom they apply in interacting with the ecosystem. Its health is defined as the condition in which the ecosystem can deliver and continuously renew its fundamental services. A healthy ecosystem allows optimal interactions between humans and the other biotic/abiotic components, and only in a healthy ecosystem can humans survive and efficiently reproduce. Thus, both the human and ecosystem health should be considered together in view of their interdependence. The present article suggests that this relationship could be considered starting from the Hippocrates (460 BC-370 BC) work "On Airs, Waters, and Places" to derive useful medical and philosophical implications for medicine which is indeed a topic that involves scientific as well as philosophical concepts that implicate a background broader than the human body. The brain-body-ecosystem medicine is proposed as a new more complete approach to safeguarding human health. Epidemiological data demonstrate that exploitation of the environment resulting in ecosystem damage affects human health and in several instances these diseases can be detected by modifications in the heart-brain interactions that can be diagnosed through the analysis of changes in heart rate variability.

RESUMO

*: Background Consisting of dictated free-text documents such as discharge summaries, medical narratives are widely used in medical natural language processing. Relationships between anatomical entities and human body parts are crucial for building medical text mining applications. To achieve this, we establish a mapping system consisting of a Wikipedia-based scoring algorithm and a named entity normalization method (NEN). The mapping system makes full use of information available on Wikipedia, which is a comprehensive Internet medical knowledge base. We also built a new ontology, Tree of Human Body Parts (THBP), from core anatomical parts by referring to anatomical experts and Unified Medical Language Systems (UMLS) to make the mapping system efficacious for clinical treatments. *: Result The gold standard is derived from 50 discharge summaries from our previous work, in which 2,224 anatomical entities are included. The F1-measure of the baseline system is 70.20%, while our algorithm based on Wikipedia achieves 86.67% with the assistance of NEN. *: Conclusions We construct a framework to map anatomical entities to THBP ontology using normalization and a scoring algorithm based on Wikipedia. The proposed framework is proven to be much more effective and efficient than the main baseline system.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Three-dimensional surface imaging (3DSI) has proven to be useful in providing objective aid to the planning process and documentation of various plastic-surgical procedures. Although this technology is routinely used in the surface and volume analysis of the face and breast, it has been of limited use in registering and quantifying the resulting changes to the entire body surface. The aim of this study was the clinical implementation of 360° whole-body scans to evaluate the treatment of lipoedema. PATIENTS, MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three 3DSI devices (Eva, Thor and Sense) were tested for precision and reproducibility regarding whole-body scans. Using a standardised setup consisting of an automatic turntable and predetermined body poses, human subjects were analysed by measuring axial circumferences and quantifying defined layers of body volume. The relevant statistical and clinical deviations were subsequently evaluated. RESULTS: A standardised procedure for 360° scans was successfully implemented. All tested scanners yielded sufficient results with respect to intraindividual reproducibility (p > 0.05). The Eva and Thor scanners delivered comparable results for axial circumference and volume analysis (p > 0.05). The Sense scanner allowed for a precise analysis in the area of the body trunk, but had significant deficits regarding the lower extremity (p < 0.05). The data analysis was then successfully applied to selected clinical cases. CONCLUSION: A procedure to reproducibly capture and analyse the human body was successfully established for clinical use in plastic surgery. Two of the tested 3DSI devices allowed for an objective surface and volume analysis of the human body. The third scanner (Sense) offered the ability to perform 360° scans at a low cost, albeit lacking in precision when applied to certain areas of the body. These findings may help to objectively evaluate the effects of different procedures on the entirety of the body surface in the future.

RESUMO

Full-body motion capture typically requires sensors/markers to be placed on each rigid body segment, which results in long setup times and is obtrusive. The number of sensors/markers can be reduced using deep learning or offline methods. However, this requires large training datasets and/or sufficient computational resources. Therefore, we investigate the following research question: "What is the performance of a shallow approach, compared to a deep learning one, for estimating time coherent full-body poses using only five inertial sensors?". We propose to incorporate past/future inertial sensor information into a stacked input vector, which is fed to a shallow neural network for estimating full-body poses. Shallow and deep learning approaches are compared using the same input vector configurations. Additionally, the inclusion of acceleration input is evaluated. The results show that a shallow learning approach can estimate full-body poses with a similar accuracy (~6 cm) to that of a deep learning approach (~7 cm). However, the jerk errors are smaller using the deep learning approach, which can be the effect of explicit recurrent modelling. Furthermore, it is shown that the delay using a shallow learning approach (72 ms) is smaller than that of a deep learning approach (117 ms).

RESUMO

Estimating distances between people and robots plays a crucial role in understanding social Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) from an egocentric view. It is a key step if robots should engage in social interactions, and to collaborate with people as part of human-robot teams. For distance estimation between a person and a robot, different sensors can be employed, and the number of challenges to be addressed by the distance estimation methods rise with the simplicity of the technology of a sensor. In the case of estimating distances using individual images from a single camera in a egocentric position, it is often required that individuals in the scene are facing the camera, do not occlude each other, and are fairly visible so specific facial or body features can be identified. In this paper, we propose a novel method for estimating distances between a robot and people using single images from a single egocentric camera. The method is based on previously proven 2D pose estimation, which allows partial occlusions, cluttered background, and relatively low resolution. The method estimates distance with respect to the camera based on the Euclidean distance between ear and torso of people in the image plane. Ear and torso characteristic points has been selected based on their relatively high visibility regardless of a person orientation and a certain degree of uniformity with regard to the age and gender. Experimental validation demonstrates effectiveness of the proposed method.

RESUMO

Fasting - Effects on the Human Body and Psyche Abstract. Fasting has become a trend: to lose weight, to increase well-being, or to heal acute and chronic diseases. The positive and negative effects of fasting are controversially discussed. The aim of this pilot study was to investigate the possible effects of fasting on body and well-being/psychic features. A group of twelve healthy volunteers (ten women and two men) was fasting for one week. Several clinical (body weight, blood pressure) and mental (feeling hungry, feeling cold, mood, power, and sleep quality) parameters were measured during this period. Side effects were recorded as well. This pilot study showed a wide range of effects and remarkable interindividual variation.
