This study evaluated the reliability, precision, and clinically important change of the Nine-Hole Peg Test (9-HPT) over a 1-week period. Sixty-nine patients with multiple sclerosis completed the 9-HPT on two occasions 1 week apart. Test-retest reliability was based on intraclass correlation coefficient, and precision was based on standard error of measurement and coefficient of variation. Clinically important change was based on the minimal detectable change. Intraclass correlation coefficients exceed 0.90 for all 9-HPT metrics...

Acute stroke patients with dysphagia are at risk of developing pulmonary infection, which increases the risk of death. Therefore, optimal management of dysphagia is essential; however, available evidence supporting the effectiveness of dysphagia treatments is limited. Surface electrical stimulation (e-stim) has been developed as a new treatment modality for dysphagia. In this study, we investigated the efficacy of surface sensory e-stim therapy in preventing pulmonary infection in 53 acute stroke patients with dysphagia...

Regaining of the patient's ability to walk after stroke is an important goal of rehabilitation programmes. The ultimate goal of gait rehabilitation is to empower patients for overground walking. We have previously developed a prototype of a therapist-controlled mobile platform with compliant pelvis support mechanism that enables balance training during overground walking (device E-go). The aim of this pilot randomized controlled study was to explore the usefulness of the E-go in reducing the number of therapists needed during walking training, and to explore the effectiveness of the E-go on walking abilities in severely affected stroke patients...

Because of the rising prevalence of cancer, many individuals are living with the side effects of cancer and its treatment. One of the possible side effects is chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of lower limb closed kinematic chain exercises on balance in patients with CIPN. The study design was a single group pre-post experimental one. The study was conducted at a tertiary care cancer hospital. A total of 25 individuals with CIPN and aged 30 years and older were recruited using the Modified Total Neuropathy Score higher than 5...

Knee rotationplasty (KRP) is a type of surgery in which the rotated ankle serves as a new knee after being removed for bone tumor. Although this limb salvage surgery is rarely indicated in properly selected patients, it may offer functional advantages over transfemoral amputation, and more durable results compared with a prosthesis. The walking mechanics of adult patients after KRP is believed to be close to that of below-knee amputees. In this study, we evaluated steady-state walking of KRP patients from the viewpoint of the overall muscle power needed to keep the body centre of mass in motion...

Although caregiving for stroke survivors is usually long-term, most studies on caregivers have generally involved only the first year following the event. We assessed and compared the long-term level of well-being measures among stroke survivors and their caregivers at more than 1 year following the stroke event and examined the associations between well-being, survivors' characteristics, and caregiver burden. We interviewed a convenience sample of 51 community-dwelling stroke survivors, at least 1 year after the last stroke event, and their primary caregivers...

Miyoko Watanabe, Takahiro Higuchi, Kuniyasu Imanaka
The lateral body weight-shifting task is commonly used in therapeutic programs for patients with orthopedic complaints or hemiparesis. Although the patients usually support themselves using the upper limbs during the task, it is unclear whether the use of upper limbs affects performance accuracy of lateral body weight shifting. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of support by the upper limbs on performance accuracy, particularly on the central tendency effects (i.e. overshooting for light targets and undershooting for heavy targets)...

To determine and/or adjust exercise training intensity for patients when the cardiopulmonary exercise test is not accessible, the determination of dyspnoea threshold (defined as the onset of self-perceived breathing discomfort) during the 6-min walk test (6MWT) could be a good alternative. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and reproducibility of self-perceived dyspnoea threshold and to determine whether a useful equation to estimate ventilatory threshold from self-perceived dyspnoea threshold could be derived...

Life satisfaction is associated with overall somatic health and the short-term surgical outcome in lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) patients. In this study, the long-term relationship between life satisfaction and the surgical outcome in LSS patients was investigated in a 10-year follow-up. This prospective clinical study included 102 LSS patients who underwent decompressive surgery. They completed a set of questionnaires first preoperatively and then 6 times postoperatively (at 3 and 6 months, and at 1, 2, 5 and 10 years)...
