A full indepth correlational analysis is needed to track fatigue and record any trends associated with consecutive cycles of exposure to UV. To filter the large amount of data (L*, a*, b*), values of colour difference (DE) were used as a measure of fatigue. DE values are easily manipulated and different values of L*, a*, and b* may be used to track the changes and differences in colour. , 2014). 1 g/L 2,2-bis(4-dimethoxyphenyl)-6-acetoxy-2H-naphtho-[1,2-b]pyran5-carboxylat. 1 g/L 2,2,6-tris(4-ethoxyphenyl)-9-methoxy-2H-naphtho-[1,2-b]pyran5-carboxylat.

Consequently, these uncalled-for pressures can lead to new wounds on the front of the leg where blood circulation could be badly affected. The shape memory strips in this system do not cover the tibia region once they are fastened in position and hence they prevent the likelihood of any wound being generated by excessive pressure. Nickeletitanium-based shape memory alloys have been used in orthopaedic surgeries from the early 1960s; however, their use has increasingly become restricted owing to potential toxic effects of nickel ions that are released in time within the body and the allergic responses experienced by some patients.
