The precision of speech articulation is related to the possibility and freedom of the mandibular movements, modifying the spaces in order to allow the different articulatory positions of each sound. Electrognathography allows the objective delineation and registration of the mandibular movements, determining the level of opening, translations and velocity of these movements. Its use is a resource that can establish quantitative diagnostic parameters. The aim of this study was to verify the amplitude, velocity and characterization of the mandibular movements during speech using computerized electrognathography.
Development of Reusable Bid Evaluation Models for the Portuguese Electric Transmission Company
Portuguese models list
Objective: To analyze the professional practice models used by nurses in the hospital context. Method: A descriptive study with a qualitative approach was carried out in 19 hospitals with 56 nurses. Data collection was carried out by means of a semi-structured interview. Results: The following categories emerged from analysis: a practice focused on the management of signs and symptoms, where the biomedical model, prevention of complications, and early detection of signs and symptoms of clinical worsening stood out, and a practice based on patients' human responses, emphasizing health promotion, self-care promotion, autonomy reconstruction, functional rehabilitation, patients' training, preparation to return home, and facilitation of transitions. Final considerations: In spite of the evolution seen in some contexts, a distance between the models practiced and those presented is still found, which indicates the need for changes ensuring structuring and systematization of the professional practice. Abstract Objective: To analyze the professional practice models used by nurses in the hospital context.

Bid evaluation is the process of selecting a contractor from a number of bidders. This paper presents the various components of this interactive sociotechnical process. Given the number of contracts awarded by REN each year, it was crucial that the models be reusable in similar calls for tenders; this required substantial care in structuring the criteria, with a focus on constructed scales, and building value function models based on qualitative pairwise comparison judgments of difference in attractiveness.
