The Effects Of Whole Body Vibration On Postural Control In Patients With Ataxia

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To investigate the effects of whole body vibration on postural control and on the level of satisfaction regarding how to reach the goals of the patients with ataxia

Description

Patients will be randomly assigned to 2 groups, group 1 will take only exercise therapy, group 2 will take exercise therapy and whole body vibration together. After 1 week wash-out period, patients assigned other therapy period. All assessments will be repeated before and after each therapy period. Exercise therapy will consist of selected balance, coordination and walking exercises according to the individual needs of patients. Whole body vibration (20-30 Hz, minimum amplitude) will be applied to cases in the form of 4 sets (1 min application and 1min rest.) Cases will take the treatment 1-hour, 3 days in a week for 8 weeks.

The evaluation parameters consists of demographic information, Computerized Dynamic Posturography, International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale, Trunk Impairment Scale, Berg Balance Scale, Barthel Index and Goal Assessment Scale.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

An occupational disorder resulting from prolonged exposure to vibration, affecting the fingers, hands, and forearms. It occurs in workers who regularly use vibrating tools such as jackhammers, power chain saws, riveters, etc. Symptoms include episodic finger blanching, NUMBNESS, tingling, and loss of nerve sensitivity.
