PURPOSE: Feeding assistance is commonly used to alleviate mealtime difficulties and decrease risk. It is unclear how to best support the transition from independence to assisted feeding across the lifespan. The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine attitudes toward feeding assistance among healthy younger and older adults. DESIGN: Qualitative study. METHODS: A total of 17 younger and 19 older adults were interviewed following a simulated feeding (assisted and self-feeding) experience...

Mary Elizabeth Bowen, Meredeth Rowe
PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to examine the characteristics of wandering associated with preserved versus worsened activities of daily living (ADL) function. DESIGN: Longitudinal prospective design. Twenty-two cognitively impaired residents of an assisted living facility with over 450 observations were followed up to 8 months. METHODS: Hierarchical linear modeling techniques examine how wandering activity (episodes, distance traveled, gait speed), measured by a real-time locating system, may affect ADL (the Barthel index, the Functional Independence Measure [FIM])...

Michelle Miller, Leslie Neal-Boylan
PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to make rehabilitation nurses aware that the Supreme Court has limited some of the protections afforded by the Americans With Disabilities Act (1990) on the basis of "sovereign immunity." METHODS: The authors use the case review method to analyze Supreme Court cases and alternatives for people with disabilities discriminated against because of the state in which they live. FINDINGS: Sovereign immunity makes it more difficult for a disabled person to bring a lawsuit against a state government (as an employer or provider of a public service) under the Americans With Disabilities Act...

PURPOSE: This research was conducted to determine the effects of an aquatic exercise program on pain, stiffness, physical function, and self-efficacy in individuals with osteoarthritis. DESIGN: A randomized controlled trial. METHODS: Participants in the experimental group participated in the aquatic exercise program three times a week for 8 weeks; participants in the control group did not.

Benjamin Fusco-Gessick, Michele Cournan
BACKGROUND: Falls remain a major issue in inpatient rehabilitation. Decreased scores on the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), given to every patient, have been shown to predict falls risk. PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to extend previous research using FIM to predict falls by using only subscales assessed earliest during admissions to indicate high risk of falls. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. METHODS: Two consecutive samples of patients (n1 = 1,553, n2 = 12,301) admitted to a rehabilitation hospital over 9-month and 5-year periods, respectively, were used to evaluate the predictive utility of using only a small number of FIM subscales...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of patient-selected exercise adherence strategies following cardiac rehabilitation (CR). DESIGN: Twenty patients with heart failure (HF) were recruited and randomly assigned to the intervention or control group at completion of CR. METHODS: The intervention included the use of six adherence strategies (logs, graphs, pedometers, phone follow-up, education, and a letter from CR staff), which were provided for 6 weeks post CR and during home-based exercise...

PURPOSE: Earlier, we reported development and initial testing of a rapid, low burden measure of wheelchair seated posture (the Seated Posture Scale [SPS]) for research and clinical use. The purpose of this study was to test the intrarater reliability, interrater reliability, and criterion related validity of the SPS. DESIGN: We used a descriptive design to test and develop the instrument. METHODS: We used the method described by Walter, Donner, and Eliasziw to determine 46 participants were needed, from two Veterans Administration nursing homes or CLCs (community living centers)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of a home-based resistance exercise program for people living with physical disability. DESIGN: A quasiexperimental study. METHOD: Forty participants enrolled, and 24 completed the 12-week study with 13 in the intervention group and 11 in the control group. Outcomes were measured by pretests and posttests, including Six-Minute Walk Test, Five Times Sit-to-Stand Test, 10-Meter Walk Test, Timed Up and Go, One Repetition Maximum, World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule 2...

PURPOSE: One of the most important aspects in neuromotor rehabilitation is the need of feedback for patients. The rehabilitation system's efficiency relies on the therapist's judgment; the therapist tells the patient whether he/she is performing the exercises correctly. This process may be quite subjective, because it depends on the therapist's personal opinion. On the other hand, recent studies have shown that vibrotactile biofeedback can improve the effectiveness of interaction as it is a very helpful tool in the physiological process of neuromotor rehabilitation...

PURPOSE: Falls are a major safety issue in rehabilitation settings. Patients receive mixed messages-try to be as independent as possible, but don't do anything in your room without calling for assistance. Despite the use of multiple falls interventions at this facility, the fall rate remained high. To impact this rate, the facility implemented a video monitoring system. This system allows for patients at risk for falling to be monitored from a remote location. The monitor technician is able to speak to the patient directly and/or contact staff members to respond to the room, preventing a fall...
