BACKGROUND: Systemic inflammation and its impact on rehabilitation for patients with non-traumatic haemorrhagic injury (HBI) sequelae has not yet been adequately documented. OBJECTIVE AND METHODS: We therefore considered 31 patients with HBI, to determine the serum levels of inflammatory markers (C-Reactive Protein, CRP and or interleukine-6, IL-6) to establish their impact on functional status (Functional Independence Measure, FIM: 18 indicating the worst performance and 126, a normal score)...

This paper describes families' experience with service access following TBI. OBJECTIVES: To describe parent reported service utilization following preschool TBI and examine predictors of service access. METHODS: Participants (N = 80) were drawn from the first visit of a longitudinal study examining elementary school outcomes following TBI...

BACKGROUND: Social communication is a persistent area of need after pediatric traumatic brain injury; however, it continues to be misunderstood, under-recognized, and under-treated. Clinicians must have a working understanding of current evidence and practice recommendations to support practice. OBJECTIVES: 1) To analyze recent evidence in social communication published in the last ten years, which is specific to pediatric TBI and 2) To translate these findings for clinicians...

BACKGROUND: The transition from hospital to school is regarded by researchers as a key factor in the educational success of students with traumatic brain injury (TBI). OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study is to look closely at what transition services consist of, how they are delivered, and how they are received by educators. METHODS: Parents and educators of 21 students with TBI participated in a qualitative study of the delivery of transition services and implementation of hospital recommendations...

BACKGROUND: The educational identification (ED-ID) of students with traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been legislated in numerous states, and TBI has become its own special education category. Questions abound as to whether these changes will lead to more readily identifying these students to provide appropriate special education supports. OBJECTIVE: Elucidate one state's response to legislative changes around ED-ID of TBI. METHODS: This is a phenomenological case study of nine school districts in one state...

BACKGROUND: Educators lack understanding of traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can lead to a lack of appropriate assessment and intervention methods for these students. OBJECTIVE(S): This qualitative study explored what experienced teachers perceive, believe, and know about pediatric TBI. METHODS: Following development of a standardized interview protocol, 46 teachers from Australia, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, and the United States took part in semi-structured interviews...

BACKGROUND: The Timed up and go test (TUG), the Five times sit-to-stand test (FTSTS) and the Bed Mobility test (BMT) are widely used in clinical practice for Parkinson Disease (PD). However, no reported studies have evaluated the responsiveness to group physical therapy intervention (GPTI). OBJECTIVE: To verify if TUG, FTSTS and BMT were responsive to GPTI. METHODS: Thirty individuals with PD were assessed prior to and after an 8-week evidence-based GPTI...

BACKGROUND: Neurogenic bladder (NB) is a common pediatric urological disease caused by a variety of neurological pathologies. Clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) has been the preferred method to empty bladder. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of CIC on preserving bladder and upper urinary tract function in infants less than 1 year old with NB. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 76 infants with NB. Patients were divided into two groups according to treatment initiation: the early CIC group (ECG) (<1 year old) and the late CIC group (LCG) (>3 years old)...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States with its sequelae often affecting individuals long after the initial injury. Innovations in virtual reality (VR) technology may offer potential therapy options in the recovery from such injuries. However, there is currently no consensus regarding the efficacy of VR in the setting of TBI rehabilitation. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this review is to evaluate and summarize the current literature regarding immersive VR in the rehabilitation of those with TBI...

BACKGROUND: Children with brain injuries face significant challenges in their recovery. One of the greatest is transitioning from hospital/home to school where they face issues such as reintegration, lack of understanding and catching up with missed work. Many children struggle with their altered circumstances and require additional supports to meet the academic demands of systems which are ill equipped to teach them. OBJECTIVE: To summarise the best available evidence for the use of educational interventions to improve academic attainment in childhood survivors of acquired brain injury (ABI)...

BACKGROUND: The increasing number of patients with acquired brain injury and the current subjectivity of the conventional upper extremity (UE) assessment tests require new objective assessment techniques. OBJECTIVE: This research proposes a novel objective motor assessment (OMA) methodology based on the Fugl-Meyer assessment (FMA). The goals are to automatically calculate the objective scores (OSs) of FMA-UE movements (as well as a global OS) and to interpret the estimated OSs...

BACKGROUND: Recent evidence suggests that autonomic nervous dysfunction may be one of many potential factors contributing to persisting post-concussion symptoms. OBJECTIVE: This is the first systematic review to explore the impact of concussion on multiple aspects of autonomic nervous system functioning. METHODS: The methods employed are in compliance with the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and PRISMA standards. Embase, MEDLINE, PsychINFO, and Science Citation Index literature searches were performed using relevant indexing terms for articles published prior to the end of December 2016...

BACKGROUND: Autonomic disturbances are a common phenomenon in patients' post-stroke, characterized by hypo function of the para-sympathetic and/or overactive sympathetic system. The impact of autonomic disturbances on physical therapy tasks during the rehabilitation period has not yet been assessed. OBJECTIVE: To describe the response of the cardiac autonomic nervous system during different tasks, among patients and age-matched healthy controls. METHODS: 19 patients in the subacute phase post first-ever ischemic stroke, and 16 controls...
