OBJECTIVES: For hospitalizations in rehabilitation centers (RCs) in France, the quantification of healthcare givers' activity is based on the dependency of the patients, defined as a total or partial inability to perform activities required for daily living without help. The tools currently used to quantify dependency are not sufficiently precise. Here we describe the construction of a new tool, the SOFMER Activity Score (SAS scoring), which allows for a good description of the level of activity of patients hospitalized in RCs, and a feasibility study of the tool...

Anodal stimulation increases cortical excitably, whereas cathodal stimulation decreases cortical excitability. Dual transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS; anodal over the lesioned hemisphere, cathodal over the non-lesioned hemisphere) was found to enhance motor learning. The corresponding tDCS-induced changes were reported to reduce the inhibition exerted by the unaffected hemisphere on the affected hemisphere and restore the normal balance of the interhemispheric inhibition. Most studies were devoted to the possible modification of upper-limb motor function after tDCS; however, almost no study has demonstrated its effects on lower-limb function and gait, which are also commonly disordered in stroke patients with motor deficits...

OBJECTIVE: To describe spasticity from the onset of acquired brain injury, time course over the first year and factors associated with prediction of the development of spasticity METHODS: Recent relevant literature known to the authors, along with a complementary search yielding a total of 9 articles, represented the base for this scoping review. RESULTS: Spasticity can be seen in the first week after brain injury and is more common in the upper than lower extremity...

OBJECTIVE: Microprocessor-controlled knees are generally prescribed and reimbursed for active amputees. Recent studies suggested that this technology could be useful for amputees with moderate activity level. We compared the efficiency of a microprocessor-controlled knee (MPK, Kenevo, Otto Bock) and non-MPKs (NMPKs) in these indications. METHODS: A multi-centric randomized crossover trial was conducted in 16 hospitals from 3 European countries. Participants were randomized to an MPK-NMPK sequence, testing the MPK for 3 months and the NMPK for 1 month, or to an NMPK-MPK sequence, testing the NMPK for 1 month and the MPK for 3 months...

Perceptual and sensorimotor timing skills can be comprehensively assessed with the Battery for the Assessment of Auditory Sensorimotor and Timing Abilities (BAASTA). The battery has been used for testing rhythmic skills in healthy adults and patient populations (e.g., with Parkinson disease), showing sensitivity to timing and rhythm deficits. Here we assessed the test-retest reliability of the BAASTA in 20 healthy adults. Participants were tested twice with the BAASTA, implemented on a tablet interface, with a 2-week interval...

BACKGROUND: Somatosensory impairment of the upper limb (UL) occurs in approximately 50% of adults post-stroke, associated with loss of hand motor function, activity and participation. Measurement of UL sensory impairment is a component of rehabilitation contributing to the selection of sensorimotor techniques optimising recovery and providing a prognostic estimate of UL function. To date, no standardized official French version of a measure of somatosensory impairment has been established...

OBJECTIVES: The usual complications after recent stroke such as disabling spasticity and shoulder pain seemed less frequent in recent years. This study examined the frequency of spasticity and shoulder pain in recent post-stroke patients over time in our physical and rehabilitation medicine department. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of post-stroke inpatients over the last 15 years. Spasticity and shoulder pain prevalence were analysed, as were demographic, clinical and stroke characteristics...

BACKGROUND: Chronic musculoskeletal pain disorders are highly prevalent and have high personal and societal cost. Hence, early detection and care of patients at risk of developing chronic pain is important. Risk factors are well known and screening tools exist, but much less is known about the care of at-risk patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of secondary prevention strategies for musculoskeletal pain. METHODS: We performed a systematic review of clinical trials in which treatments were adjusted to the risk of chronicity in adults with acute or subacute musculoskeletal pain...

OBJECTIVE: To verify the relation between spontaneous walking speed (Sfree) and oxygen cost of walking at Sfree (Cwfree) in post-stroke hemiparetic patients and to test the validity of a prediction model to estimate Cwfree based on Sfree. DESIGN: We included 26 participants (mean age 65.1 years [SD 15.7]) with mild to moderate disability after stroke who walked at Sfree using mobility aids if necessary for 6min. The Cwfree was measured at a stabilized metabolic rate by indirect calorimetry with the Metamax 3B spiroergometry device...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar-flexion-based endurance training, namely cycling, could be effective in reducing pain and improving function and health-related quality of life in older people with chronic low back pain. OBJECTIVES: To assess barriers and facilitators to home-based cycling in older patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective mixed-method study. Patients≥50 years old followed up for LSS from November 2015 to June 2016 in a French tertiary care center were screened...

OBJECTIVE: Providing patients with validated information before total hip arthroplasty may help lessen discrepancies between patients' expectations and the surgical result. This study sought to validate an information booklet for candidates for hip arthroplasty by using a mixed qualitative and quantitative approach based on a panel of patients and a sample of healthcare professionals. METHODS: We developed a booklet in accordance with the standard methods and then conducted focus groups to collect the opinions of a sample of multidisciplinary experts involved in the care of patients with hip osteoarthritis...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have demonstrated increased medial stresses in knee varus alignment. Selecting a suitable treatment strategy for individuals with knee malalignment should be a priority. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate the effects of a 16-week corrective exercise continuum (CEC) program on 3-D joint angles of the dominant and non-dominant lower limbs in children with genu varus during walking. METHODS: Overall, 28 male children with genu varus (age range 9-14 years) volunteered to participate in this study...

BACKGROUND: Although the initial anaerobic component of exercise adaptation is unavoidable, no specific functional test is available for use in routine non-sporting practice to evaluate it. OBJECTIVE: To assess the bioenergetic and biomechanical properties of the Short and Fast Step Test (SFST), which consists of walking up and down a step as many times as possible in 1minute and to analyse its ability to explore the initial anaerobic component of effort in comparison to a reference self-paced step test...

OBJECTIVES: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is the most common genetic skeletal disorder. Extraskeletal findings are common but an association with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) has never been described. The aim of this study was to investigate clinical features of children with OI and suspected SDB. METHODS: A retrospective study of clinical records, signs of SDB and polysomnographic recordings of children with OI was performed. We paid particular attention to symptoms that could be associated with SDB in this population - scoliosis, kyphosis, vertebral arthrodesis, chest wall deformities, basilar impression, autonomy - as well as data already known to be associated with obstructive sleep apnea such as body mass index and upper-airway impairment...

BACKGROUND: The Neer, Hawkins, and Yocum clinical tests detect sub-acromial impingement as a pathogenic process of degenerative rotator cuff disease. Their reproducibility has been little investigated. OBJECTIVES: We tested the reproducibility of the Neer, Hawkins, and Yocum clinical tests for detecting this sub-acromial impingement and also an original clinical manoeuver, the countertest with elevation with lateral rotation (CELR), which is a test of sub-acromial impingement...
