Jyue-Liang Chen, Ray-Yau Wang, Chun-Shou Lee, Yun-Ju Chen, Yea-Ru Yang
BACKGROUND: Previous studies showed that cane-dependent post-stroke ambulators have poor balance and gait performance. Adhesive taping on the hip may be used as a therapeutic modality for improving range of motion and muscle activity in individuals with stroke. AIM: The objective of this study was to investigate the immediate effect of the hip extensor and abductor taping on balance and walking ability in cane-dependent ambulators with chronic stroke. DESIGN: This study was a single-blinded, randomized controlled trial...

BACKGROUND: ABILHAND is a self-reported questionnaire assessing manual ability. It was validated and calibrated using the Rasch analysis for European stroke patients. After a stroke, performing upper limb activities of daily living is influenced by personal and environmental contextual factors. It is thus important to conduct a contextual validation to use this questionnaire outside of Europe. AIM: To perform a cross cultural validation of the ABILHAND-Stroke questionnaire for post- stroke patients living in Benin, a West-African country...

BACKGROUND: Wearable powered robotic exoskeletons allow patients with complete spinal cord injury (SCI) to practice over-ground real-world gait scenarios. The global functional interaction subject-exoskeleton is a key factor to produce interlimb coordinated movements. Efficacy and efficiency of over-ground walking abilities using powered exoskeletons are related not only to the symbiotic sensory-motor interaction subject-exoskeleton but also to exoskeleton control. AIM: Assess if walking ability of motor complete SCI patients at thoracic or lower level, using a wearable powered exoskeleton (ReWalk), can be influenced by different exoskeleton software control...

BACKGROUND: Equinovarus foot deformity (EVFD) is the most common lower limb deformity in stroke patients. Immobilization following EVFD surgical correction is known to have a negative impact on muscle rearrangement with possible loss of walking ability in stroke patients. In a previous study, safe and positive effects at one-month follow up after surgery were obtained with an early rehabilitation treatment (ERT) characterized by immediate walking and training. AIM: To determine long-term safety and efficacy of functional surgery followed by early rehabilitation (FSER)...

BACKGROUND: Neck pain is presented with a variety of symptoms. Pain drawings are used in the clinical assessment of people with neck pain. Pain extent based upon pain drawings can be associated with different factors. However, the relation between pain extent and function limitations in people with neck pain is unknown. AIM: To explore the associations between pain extent extracted from pain drawings, and self-reported neck pain related disability, quality of life, depression, self-reported neck function, cervical muscle function, and range of motion in a chronic neck pain population and possible differences depending on the onset of pain being traumatic or not...

BACKGROUND: Hemiplegia is the most common form of Cerebral Palsy. Upper Limb is generally more affected than lower one. In fact, hemiplegic children can spontaneously acquire standing and walking ability, while manipulation remains uncertain, with severe limitations in activity and participation, which define child's functional status (International Classification of Functioning - ICF). Several non-surgical tools are currently available to approach upper limb impairments. Studies regarding upper limb multilevel surgery in Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy are relatively few and inhomogeneous...

BACKGROUND: After discharge, most patients who have suffered a stroke remain with some limitations in their stair climbing ability. This is a critical factor in order to be independent in real-life mobility. Although there are several studies on prognostic factors for gait recovery, few of them have focused on to the recovery of stair climbing. AIM: The aim of this study was to identify prognostic risk factors for the recovery of stair climbing ability in a large sample of subjects with subacute stroke...

BACKGROUND: Current models of pain behaviour suggest that kinesiophobia prevents the reacquisition of normal function, promotes the development of maladaptive coping strategies, and contributes to the disability associated with chronic neck pain (NP). AIM: Comparing two brief cognitive-behavioural programmes aimed at managing kinesiophobia to understand which one induces better short-term improvements in disability, fear of movement, catastrophising, adaptive coping strategies, quality of life (QoL), and pain intensity of chronic NP...
