This study evaluates the impact of Brain Gym (BG) training in active older adults. Eighty-five participants were assigned to four training groups: BG (n = 18), BG plus water-based exercise (n = 18), land-based exercise (n = 30), and land plus water-based exercise (n = 19). The effects of the programs on the attention and memory functions were assessed by means of the symbol digit modality test. The two-min step and the eight-foot up-and-go tests were used to evaluate their impact on fitness level. No program had a significant influence on the participant's cognitive performance, while different effects on the sample' fitness levels were observed...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility and safety of utilizing a commercially available virtual reality gaming system as a treatment intervention for balance training. DESIGN: A randomized controlled trial in which assessment and analysis were blinded. SETTING: An inpatient rehabilitation facility. INTERVENTION: Interventions included balance-based physical therapy using a Nintendo Wii, as monitored by a physical therapist, and receipt of one-on-one balance-based physical therapy using standard physical therapy modalities available for use in the therapy gym...

LINGO-1 (leucine-rich repeat and Ig domain containing NOGO receptor interacting protein-1) is a negative regulator of myelination and repair of damaged axons in the central nervous system (CNS). Blocking LINGO-1 function leads to robust remyelination. The anti-LINGO-1 Li81 antibody is currently being evaluated in clinical trials for multiple sclerosis (MS) and is the first MS therapy that directly targets myelin repair. LINGO-1 is selectively expressed in brain and spinal cord but not in peripheral tissues...

In this paper, we present a retrospective and chronological review of our efforts to revolutionize the way physical medicine is practiced by developing and deploying therapeutic robots. We present a sample of our clinical results with well over 300 stroke patients, both inpatients and outpatients, proving that movement therapy has a measurable and significant impact on recovery following brain injury. Bolstered by this result, we embarked on a two-pronged approach: 1) to determine what constitutes best therapy practice and 2) to develop additional therapeutic robots...

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of a high-level mobility programme for people with acquired brain injury (ABI). RESEARCH DESIGN: A cohort study which evaluated the efficacy of a high-level mobility programme for people with ABI. SETTING: A major rehabilitation hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-eight people with acquired brain injury. EXPERIMENTAL INTERVENTIONS: A 3 month high-level mobility programme conducted twice weekly consisting of strengthening exercises, pre-running and running drills and agility exercises supplemented with a gym or home exercise programme...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate change in regional cerebral perfusion (rCBF) after median nerve stimulation (MNS) therapy in brain-damaged patients. METHODS: Twelve brain-damaged patients received 12 courses of MNS. Technetium-99m-ethyl cysteinate diethylester (99mTc-ECD) SPECT was performed before and 4 weeks after MNS initiation. Clinical response was assessed by Glasglow coma scale or clinical improvement. 12 MNS patients were grouped as good responder (GR) (n = 6) and poor responder (PR) (n = 6) according to therapy response...
