3) Prevents food from being forced through the contact area.
This has to be seen in the light of the methodological limitation that the influence of soft-tissue reactions cannot be clearly separated from arch flattening of the foot by detecting the contact area. Observations of other authors with athletes completing different athletic tasks support our findings [17, 18].
Consequently, the larger contact area increased the metallization fraction of the rear surface.
"The team that dominates the contact area in attack and defence seem to go on and win the game.
There is the massive risk of cracking the contact area. We would recommend going to your mobile service provider and getting a replacement SIM anyway.
Ratios of articular contact area in neutral position to full articular surface area were consistent between left and right shoulders (rho = 1, P = 0.017) as were ratios of abduction articular contact area to complete articular surface area (rho = 0.97, P = 0.005).
contact area, while still implementing the same installation techniques,
(11) Unilateral chewing is found to be present in 45% to 97% (12-14) of the population, and is associated with centrally controlled factors, such as handedness, (12) unilateral signs of temporomandibular disorders, asymmetrical loss of antagonist contact, and presence of removable partial dentures.13 In a dentate population, chewing side preference was present in almost half the subjects, and was associated with lateral asymmetry of bite force and occlusal contact area. (14) However, no studies concerning either occlusal or functional asymmetry in individuals with different facial highs has been found in the literature.
Abnormalities in other factors related to contact pressure (e.g., contact area, location of pressure [15], and joint stress [4,16-17]) may also contribute to the development of PFP.
They mimic, in a way, the micro- and nano-filaments on the gecko's foot, which the animal uses to control adhesion by increasing or decreasing contact area with a surface.
