Telehealth refers to health care interactions that leverage telecommunication devices to provide medical care outside the traditional face-to-face, in-person medical encounter. Technology advances and research have expanded use of telehealth in health care delivery. Physical medicine and rehabilitation providers may use telehealth to deliver care to populations with neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions, commonly treated in both acute care and outpatient settings. Patients with impaired mobility and those living in locations with reduced access to care may particularly benefit...

Yunhua Luo, Zhaoyang Liang
Understanding how a helmet protects the head, especially the soft brain tissues, is the prerequisite for improving helmet design. Intracranial pressure and stresses/strains in the brain tissues are the direct indicators of traumatic brain injury and they can be used to measure helmet performance. In this study, the effects of helmet design parameters such as the helmet shell stiffness, liner compliance and thickness on the brain injury indicators were investigated by virtual impact tests. A finite element head model (FEHM) was first constructed from medical images; a personally-fitted helmet made of composite material and foam was virtually prototyped using geometric information extracted from the FEHM; a helmet-head finite element model was then assembled...

INTRODUCTION: The rationale of focal articular prosthetic resurfacing used as a primary arthroplasty procedure in the treatment of articular cartilage defects is still under debate. Conflicting reports raise concern about high rates of re-operations and continued development of osteoarthritis, while others have reported good outcomes. The goal of this paper is to present the long-term results of two patients with a 12-year follow-up and to report the results of a literature review. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two patients (male, 70 years; female 63 years) with a follow-up of 12 years were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: ACL injury prevention programs are less successful in female basketball players than in soccer players. Previous authors have identified anthropometric and biomechanical differences between the athletes and different sport-specific demands, including a higher frequency of frontal plane activities in basketball. Current injury risk screening and preventive training practices do not place a strong emphasis on frontal plane activities. The medial and lateral triple hop for distance tests may be beneficial for use in the basketball population...

The ankle and foot are commonly injured during sporting activities. Clinical diagnosis can at times be challenging, due to the complex anatomy and multiple sites of potential injury. In the athlete, there is a reduced threshold for imaging to clarify diagnosis, guide prognosis, and treatment. Diagnostic imaging is also helpful in evaluating ongoing symptoms in the subacute or chronic setting. (©) RSNA, 2017.

REVIEW
Giovanni Lombardi, Ewa Ziemann, Giuseppe Banfi
Nowadays, whole-body cryotherapy is a medical physical treatment widely used in sports medicine. Recovery from injuries (e.g., trauma, overuse) and after-season recovery are the main purposes for application. However, the most recent studies confirmed the anti-inflammatory, anti-analgesic, and anti-oxidant effects of this therapy by highlighting the underlying physiological responses. In addition to its therapeutic effects, whole-body cryotherapy has been demonstrated to be a preventive strategy against the deleterious effects of exercise-induced inflammation and soreness...
