Background: Pain is a primary clinical concern for most people. Pain is the most common reason for seeking any form of health assistance be it medical, dental, physiotherapeutic or alternative disciplines. Pain threshold is defined as the lowest application of a stimulus that is perceived as pain. Experimental pain studies use a range of pain challenges including electrical, heat or cold, ischaemic and pressure. Some carry a higher potential risk of tissue injury or the sensations experienced are less acceptable to subjects. Pressure pain threshold (PPT), measured by a simple mechanical algometer is an attractive alternative well-suited for non-invasive repeated measurements on multiple sites not limited to limbs over short time intervals in a relaxed setting. Since 2000, the University of Technology Sydney had conducted eight PPT studies and collected over 47,500 baseline PPT measurements on 262 healthy subjects at 24 regional sites with three or four PPT readings for each site at each session of four to eight occasions of at least one week apart. Research Study One included seven studies with over 32,000 pre-intervention PPT measures on 235 healthy subjects at 17 sites with three PPT measures at each occasion for four consecutive occasions. These data were being analysed to develop comprehensive epidemiological profiles that assess relationships between PPT with subject variables (gender, age, BMI) and duration of temporal sessions. Research Study Two assessed the PPT at two affected and two non-affected sites of 20 patients with lateral epicondylitis. Research Study Three examined the inter-device reliability between mechanical and electronic algometers at six sites of 17 subjects. Aims: Research Study One explored the temporal stability of possible relationships between subject variables of gender, age and BMI, the duration of temporal sessions with the regional PPT at each measurement site. Research Study Two assessed the regional PPT measures at LI10 and LI...

The Bézier surface with Cr continuity on each common boundary between two composite triangular Bézier patches is generated. The directional derivatives on the Bernstein polynomials are discussed. This is to ensure that the Cr continuity is maintained along the boundary between the piecewise polynomials. The composite patches are then generated by elevating the degree of the Bézier triangles.
