--comorbidities that could affect the body axis, such as Scheuermann's disease, genetic conditions such as Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, or metabolic disease,
It is represented as angles between the sensor axis and the device body axis. This caused by imperfect mounting of sensor on the PCB (printed circuit board).
(7) The auxiliary body axis frame (ABA) [mathematical expression not reproducible] is a reference system aligned with the rocket inertia axes.
"These informations originate from: the retina, the macule the orticoli e daisacculi, the baroreceptor plantars, the oculomotority, from all the proprioceptive receptors - muscle spindle, Golgi tendon organs, from the mouth, from ATM - divided into muscles, tendons, ligaments of the body axis set, of the atlanto-occipital joint, up to the last foot joints" (Gagey et al, 1995 - p 204).
From these marks a custom-made computer program calculated automatically position of the head with respect to the centre of the dish and caudo-cranial medial compass body axis. Furthermore, it was distinguished between chicks standing radially to the dish (the caudo-cranial body axis and the axis between the centre of the dish and occiput of the chick did not diverge for more than +/- 0[degree]-45[degree], i.e.
Standard Length (SL) was taken along the body axis. The body weight (BWT) was measured using a weighing meter and recorded in grams (g).
The morphological observations of fetuses showed anomalies like open eye lid, distorted body axis, kyphosis, skin hemorrhage, drooping wrist, microphthalmia, low set arm, kinky tail, exencephaly anophthalmia, maxillary macrognathia, microcephaly, clubbed foot and microtia.
I = [[e.sub.x], [e.sub.y], [e.sub.z]] represents the inertia axis and B = [[e.sub.1], [e.sub.2], [e.sub.3]] represents the body axis. In addition, both described axis and experimental setup can be seen in Fig.
The scientists applied the new technique to study how the vertebrate body axis is mechanically built.
1, the translation axis x is orthogonal to the injector body axis and y is along the injector body axis.
