Many reports have investigated rehabilitation outcomes after a traumatic brain injury (TBI); however, comparably less is known about whether they differ from outcomes of an anoxic brain injury (ABI). Thus, we aimed to compare the rehabilitation outcomes of patients with ABI with control patients who have TBI. Forty participants with ABI and 40 participants with TBI were included in this retrospective study. Participants with ABI were matched with participants with TBI who had similar clinical characteristics such as age, initial Functional Independence Measurement (FIM) score, and duration of coma...

The prevalence of Parkinson's disease (PD) increases with aging. The aim of our cross-sectional study was to measure the quality of life of PD patients attending a self-help 'PD club' and to evaluate the potential positive effect of club life on quality of life. Data collection was carried out using questionnaires (PDQ-39, Hungarian version). Altogether, 101 individuals with clinically diagnosed PD were included, and finally 98 persons' data were analyzed. Among the eight dimensions, the highest score was found in 'bodily discomfort' and the lowest in 'social support'...

The Gait Assessment and Intervention Tool (GAIT) has been recently developed for gait assessment in patients with stroke, and it is considered as a tool that may identify clinically relevant deviations from normal gait and quantifies relevant changes in gait because of an intervention. The objective was to analyze the GAIT psychometric properties in participants with stroke. A convenience sample of 15 adults with stroke was selected (58.15±7.8 years; 5.38±3.3 years from injury). We used the GAIT for evaluating the gait in patients with stroke...

An extensive corpus of literature supports the positive impact of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) on neuroplasticity and the recovery of function. However, its clinical applicability is limited by the time of intervention and individual modality. We propose to assess the efficacy of modified CIMT protocols through a group therapy intervention. To determine the effectiveness of a group therapy, compared with individual modified CIMT, in increasing the use and functionality of movement of a paretic upper limb...

Individuals with disabilities may be at increased risk of a number of secondary conditions. Secondary conditions influence health status and quality of life. Many of these conditions are preventable and their consequences can be managed. Knowledge of the prevalence, course, and association with age of secondary conditions is needed for better prevention and management. The aim of present study was to review the available literature on the prevalence of secondary conditions in individuals with disability. We performed searches of electronic databases for studies published between 1980 and 2017 that provided information on the prevalence of secondary conditions in individuals with disabilities...

Gait analysis (GA) typically includes surface electromyographic (sEMG) recording from several lower limb muscles, optoelectronic measurement of joint rotations, and force recordings from ground-based platforms. From the latter two variables, the muscle power acting on the lower limb joints can be estimated. Recently, gait analysis on a split-belt force treadmill (GAFT) was validated for the study of adult walking. It showed high reliability of spatiotemporal, kinematic, dynamic, and sEMG parameters, matching those obtainable with GA on the basis of ground walking...

The WHO reports that one of the major chronic conditions affecting the elderly worldwide is musculoskeletal disorders that are associated with long-term pain and disability. Considering the healthcare needs of the elderly (i.e. comprehensive, accessible, efficient) and the advantages of ultrasound (US) use (patient-friendly, convenient, cost-effective, and does not require exposure to radiation or magnetic fields), there seems to be a 'gap' in the actual clinical practice. In this paper, we aimed to highlight the potential value of US imaging in the management of the elderly with a wide spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions (degenerative/rheumatic joint diseases, falls/trauma, nursing care, peripheral nerve problems, sarcopenia, and interventions)...

Our objective was to assess the benefits of the conductive education (CE) approach added to conventional physiotherapy in gait functions of poststroke, hemiparetic patients. A randomized-controlled trial was designed in a rehabilitation clinic. Late and chronic poststroke patients with gait disturbances (n=17, median age: 55 years, range: 41-72 years) were enrolled in the study. All patients received conventional physiotherapy. However, patients of only one group took part in therapy on the basis of the CE approach...
