BACKGROUND: Physical exercises are effective in the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA). There is consensus that exercise interventions should take into account the patient's preferences and needs in order to improve compliance to exercise regimes. One important personal factor is the patient's motivation for physical exercise. Health improvement is a relevant motive for exercise participation. Accordingly, exercise interventions primarily focus on health related needs such as strengthening and pain reduction...

BACKGROUND: Balance impairments are common following stroke, and may lead to loss of independent functional mobility and falls. Previous studies strived to come up with precise measures of postural control, which will provide a better prognostic power for the health status and safety of the individual. To date, the degree of difference in postural control measures between individuals with chronic stroke and healthy participants is not reported. Also there are no reported correlations between these measures and the Timed-Up-and-Go (TUG) and the Functional Reach Test (FRT)...

BACKGROUND: There were few studies about training effects of wheelchair dance on aerobic fitness in the bedridden individuals with severe cerebral palsy for whom the traditional maximal or submaximal exercise tests were not applicable. As the oxygen pulse (O2P), the oxygen uptake divided by the heart rate, is regarded to be a relative measure of stroke volume and the O2P correlates to peak oxygen uptake, we would be able to assess the training effects of wheelchair dance on aerobic fitness in those individuals measuring O2P...

Ya C Lee, Wan H Yu, I P Hsueh, Sheng S Chen, Ching L Hsieh
BACKGROUND: A lack of evidence on the test-retest reliability and responsiveness limits the utility of the BI-based Supplementary Scales (BI-SS) in both clinical and research settings. AIM: To examine the test-retest reliability and responsiveness of the BI-based Supplementary Scales (BI-SS) in patients with stroke. DESIGN: A repeated-assessments design (1 week apart) was used to examine the test-retest reliability of the BI-SS. For the responsiveness study, the participants were assessed with the BI-SS and BI (treated as an external criterion) at admission to and discharge from rehabilitation wards...

Gerold Stucki, Jerome Bickenbach
In this methodological note on applying the ICF in rehabilitation, we introduce functioning information as fundamental for the 'learning health system' and the continuous improvement of the health system's response to people's functioning needs by means of the provision of rehabilitation. A learning health system for rehabilitation operates at the micro-level of the individual patient, meso-level of operational management, and the macro-level of policy that guides rehabilitation programming. All three levels rely on the capacity of the informational system of the health system for standardized documentation and coding of functioning information, and the development of national rehabilitation quality management systems...

BACKGROUND: Menopausal women often experience the prolapse of the uterus, bladder and rectum resulting from the failure and weakening of the pelvic floor muscles (PFM). Strengthening of the PFM through the standard exercises is recognized as an effective way of preventive measures and conservative treatment of the symptoms listed above, but still need to be improved. AIM: The goal was the objective assessment of resting and functional bioelectrical activity of pelvic floor muscle (PFM) in women during menopause and its comparison in three different positions of the pelvis: anterior pelvic tilt - position 1 (P1) posterior pelvic tilt - position 2 (P2) and neutral pelvic tilt - position 3 (P3)...

Gerold Stucki, Jerome Bickenbach
In this methodological note on applying the ICF in rehabilitation, we introduce functioning as the third health indicator complementing the established indicators mortality and morbidity. Together, these three provide a complete set of indicators for monitoring the performance of health strategies in health systems. When applying functioning as the third health indicator across the five health strategies, it is fundamental to distinguish between biological health and lived health. For rehabilitation, functioning is the key indicator...

BACKGROUND: The 3-level Berg Balance Scale (BBS-3P) and 3-level Postural Assessment Scale (PASS-3P) were simplified from the BBS and PASS to overcome the complex scoring systems. The BBS-3P and PASS-3P were more feasible in busy clinical practice and showed similarly sound validity and responsiveness to the original measures. However, the reliability of the BBS-3P and PASS-3P is unknown limiting their utility and the interpretability of scores. AIM: We aimed to examine the test-retest reliability and minimal detectable change (MDC) of the BBS-3P and PASS-3P in patients with stroke...
