BACKGROUND: Individuals with extensive neuro-motor impairment and lack of speech are known to remain fairly isolated and rely on others. Yet, there is only limited evidence as to how one can help them reach a level of independence in relevant areas such as leisure and communication. This study assessed a program based on everyday technology to support leisure and communication engagement in six of those individuals. CASE SERIES REPORT: The six cases (adults) were non-ambulatory and had no speech or functional active communication...

BACKGROUND: Personality traits have gained interest in the field of disability and stress, because they may either prompt or deny compliance. They can also foster motivation and influence outcome. Parkinson disease (PD) is a disabling and stressful condition that requires coping strategies and rehabilitation plans. Three constructs and their relative scales have been a matter of investigation, namely Dispositional Optimism (DO), Locus-of-Control (LOC), and Sense-of- Coherence (SOC). AIM: The present study compared the psychometric properties of three constructs in Parkinson's Disease (PD)...

BACKGROUND: Mobility limitations are frequent in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), and could already be present in patients with so-called mild neurological disability (Expanded Disability Status Scale≤4). Assessing mobility in these patients is therefore of paramount importance. Timed upand- go test (TUG) and 2-minute walk test (2MWT) are two clinically feasible tests which reliability and responsiveness are unknown among these patients. Whether fatigue, which is the number one symptom among these patients, is linked to these limitations remains unknown...
