Small-scale tests of methods and procedures to be used on a larger scale if the pilot study demonstrates that these methods and procedures can work.
A benign condition of the tongue characterized by hypertrophy of the filiform papillae that give the dorsum of the tongue a furry appearance. The color of the elongated papillae varies from yellowish white to brown or black, depending upon staining by substances such as tobacco, food, or drugs. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Acquired responses regularly manifested by tongue movement or positioning.
Tumors or cancer of the TONGUE.
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)
This pilot study examines the effect of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback on measures of electroencephalogram (EEG) during and immediately after biofeedback. Eighteen healthy males exposed to w...
Background and Purpose. This study explores the effect of vibrotactile biofeedback on gait in 20 patients with bilateral vestibular areflexia using observational gait analysis to score individual ba...
OBJECTIVE: To discuss the relationship between tongue manifestation and the degree of neurological impairment in the patients with acute cerebral infarction. METHODS: Two hundred patients with first u...
Purpose: The objective of the telerehabilitation is a continuation of the rehabilitation process on patients' home. The study also compares the balance training in clinical environment with the telere...
Objectives: To evaluate the effects of a home-based balance training programme using visual feedback (Nintendo Wii Fit game with balance board) on balance and functional abilities in subjects with Par...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the BrainPort balance device in improving balance in people with balance deficits due to stroke.
The purpose of this study is to determine if individuals who had a stroke more than one year before entering the study and who remain unable to open their affected hand are better able to...
The purpose of this randomized, controlled trial is to examine how well biofeedback treatment works to improve constipation. The study is comparing two kinds of biofeedback treatment: 1)...
The purpose of this study is to see how the brain re-learns to control the tongue in speaking and swallowing when either portions of the tongue have been removed, or when the tongue has be...
Electropalatography (EPG), a noninvasive device that provides specific visual output on tongue-palate contact, has well-established usefulness as a biofeedback tool in speech therapy. Whi...
