Performing music or singing together provides people with great pleasure. But if you are deaf (or hard of hearing) it is not always possible to listen to other musicians while trying to sing or play an instrument. It can be particularly difficult to perceive different musical pitches with a hearing aid or other hearing-assistance device. However, the human body can transmit musical sounds to the brain when vibrations are applied to the skin. In other words, we can feel music. Our research has identified a safe way for deaf people to hear musical notes through the skin of their hands and feet. We have shown that vibration allows people to safely feel music on the skin. This approach allows people to identify a musical note as being higher or lower in pitch than other notes, and it helps musicians to play music together.

Cutaneous alterations are common in neonates and usually occur in the first few days of life. Most of these are transient and benign, appearing as physiological responses to birth. Skin pigmentation disorders are considered transitory dermatoses of newborn infants. Nail pigmentation manifests as asymptomatic brown to bluish-black skin pigmentation over the fingers and toes in newborns. Hyperpigmentation of the distal phalanx of both hands and feet is commonly found in dark-skinned newborns, but it is rare in fair-skinned newborns and East Asian populations. We herein describe a Chinese infant with transient neonatal hyperpigmentation of the proximal nail fold.

Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) or Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy (HMSN) is the most common hereditary peripheral nerve disease with progressive chronic weakness, muscle atrophy, and sensory disturbances. There are several types and subtypes of CMT with their respective clinical manifestations. In this article, we reported a patient with of CMT type X. A 43-year-old male patient was referred to a neurology clinic with weakness in both limbs for 2 years, accompanied by tingling and sensory disturbance in both hands and feet. There are several of his family members who had similar complaints. Lumbosacral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination revealed mild nucleus pulposus herniation. Electroneuromyography (ENMG) examination revealed demyelinating sensory motor polyneuropathy. Histopathological examination of nerve biopsy showed demyelination of the sural nerve. It is hard to make a diagnosis of CMT, because it requires high suspicion from clinicians once encounter a suspected case and also need to supported by sophisticated equipment such as electrophysiological examinations, nerve biopsy examinations, and genetic examinations. It is vital for clinicians for being able to diagnose CMT correctly and provide treatment as soon as possible in order to maintain the patients’ quality of life.

Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of arm power, agility and eye-hand and foot coordination in performing arm slamming skills in wrestling athletes in West Java Province. The population that was reached in this study were all wrestling athletes in the West Java area, which consisted of 30 freestyle wrestling athletes. Determination of the sample using a saturated sample, meaning that the entire affordable population is used as a research sample. The data analysis technique used is descriptive analysis and path analysis with the help of SPSS version 21 computer program with a significant level of 95% or = 0.05. The results showed that: The direct effect given by the arm power variable (X1) on the eye, hand and foot coordination variable (X3) was -0.414. Then the direct effect given by the agility variable (X2) on the eye, hand and foot coordination variable (X3) is -0.357. Then the direct effect given by the arm power variable (X1) on the arm swing skill variable (Y) is 0.546. Then the direct effect given by the agility variable (X2) on the arm swing skill variable (Y) is 0.638. And lastly, the direct effect given by the eye, hand and foot coordination variable (X3) on the arm slamming skill variable (Y) is 0.351. Sobel test calculations (Sobel Test) obtained that the value of one-tailed probability (One-tailed probability) of 0.029 <0.05. So it can be concluded that the arm power variable (X1) has an indirect effect through eye coordination, hands and feet (X3) against arm slam skills (Y). Then the results of the Sobel test calculation (Sobel Test) obtained that the one-tailed probability value is 0.0730 > 0.05. So it can be concluded that the agility variable (X2) has no indirect effect through eye, hand and foot coordination (X3) on arm slamming skills (Y).   Keywords: Arm Power, Agility, Eye, Hand and Foot Coordination, Arm Kick Skills, Wrestling

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to offer useful information for improving women’s beauty self-images by analyzing personal color choices in women’s fashions and determining the correlation between color matching and personal fashion color choices in manicures and pedicures.Methods: The research subjects included 32 women aged 20–50 years who lived in capital area and whose personal color fashion choices were determined. The data were analyzed with frequency analysis, a χ2-test, and a one-way ANOVA using SPSS WIN 25.0.Results: Considering the personal color choices, they were high in “summer types” for L* values of skin, high in “winter types” for L* values of hands and feet, and high in “fall types” for values a* and b* of skin, hands, and feet. Also, with regard to matching tones for hands and feet, the personal color choices were mostly “spring types” with warm spring-type tones, summer types with cool summer-type tones, “fall types” with warm fall-type tones, and “winter types” with cool winter-type tones.Conclusion: The results of this study suggested the matched tones for hands and feet are similar to the personal color fashion choices. These findings support a theoretical basis for harmonious color matching when choosing colors in manicure and pedicure nail art. The findings of this study may assist with beauty styling and self-images of women in this fashion era.

The relevance and novelty of the topic of the article is connected with the fact that for the first time the improved classification of the properties of human papillary patterns and their displays and the dynamic trend of expanding the legal base of fingerprint registration in the world are considered. The goal is to systematize the properties of human papillary patterns and their representations. General scientific and special methods were used. The analysis of the literature and the author's practice allow us to identify and consider the following properties of papillary patterns and their mappings, which were divided into three groups for cognitive purposes: their own properties, the properties of mappings, and the properties of the fat-rich substance of the human papillary pattern and its trace. For the first time, the properties of the poly-fat substance of the human papillary pattern and its trace are presented, which is important in view of the trend in the development of complex fingerprint examination. For the first time, the first and second groups are conditionally divided into four subgroups: for solving identification, diagnostic, classification and situational problems. For the first time, the third group is further conditionally divided into four subgroups: according to the interaction of the human body fat with the carrier object; according to the isolation of the human body fat trace; according to the dynamics of the preservation and contrast of the display of the fat-free substance of the human papillary pattern. On the other hand, the properties of papillary patterns themselves are divided into basic properties and properties for solving identification and non-identification problems, respectively. The author's definition of the following concepts is presented: "basic properties of human papillary patterns" and "properties of human papillary patterns", "basic properties of human papillary patterns mappings" and "properties of human papillary patterns mappings", "basic properties of human papillary matter" and "properties of human papillary matter", "basic properties of human papillary matter" and" properties of human papillary matter". This provides an opportunity for specialists and teachers to improve their cognitive and practical activities, and for those responsible and competent for the organization of examinations to consider creating a center for comprehensive fingerprint examination.

Psoriatic onycho-pachydermo-periostitis (POPP) is an unfamiliar and poorly recognised condition first described in 1989 by Fournie et al. It is a variant of psoriatic arthritis comprising the triad of onycholysis, soft tissue thickening and radiographically apparent periostitis. Whilst typically affecting the great toe, any of the digits of the hands and feet may be affected. A ‘drumstick’ appearance to the digits of the foot is the most common clinical presentation and can be extremely painful. Nail changes are another hallmark of POPP and can be mistakenly diagnosed as fungal infection leading to lengthy periods of incorrect treatment. In this article, we will outline the clinical presentation, imaging features, pathogenesis and treatment options for POPP. Currently, the existence of POPP is not widely known. Awareness of this unusual condition will allow early appropriate treatment and can aid in the diagnosis of indeterminate seronegative disease.

Apert syndrome is a Type 1 acrocephalosyndactyly syndrome presenting predominantly with craniofacial malformations and syndactyly. It can present with a multitude of clinical features involving any system of the body. A literature search of the PubMed electronic database was performed using the keywords “Apert syndrome” and “dermatology” in the title. The relevant references of the included articles were traced and included. A total of 27 articles appeared, the abstracts of which were screened and reviewed by both the authors independently for inclusion. After carefully analyzing all papers case by case, 21 such cases were retrieved. Cases presenting with other clinical features apart from dermatological features were also reviewed but were not included in the table. A total of about 30 patients of Apert syndrome have been described in dermatological literature, acne being the most common dermatological manifestation. Predominant clinical features in all the cases were brachycephaly due to craniosynostosis and syndactyly of hands and feet. Most of the patients had skeletal, dental, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, respiratory, cardiovascular, and dermatological manifestations in varying proportions. Apert syndrome is a rare entity which can present to a dermatologist. It is, therefore, pertinent to be able to diagnose and recognize the various clinical features of this syndrome to ensure timely management of such patients.
