Strength Training After Hip Fracture Surgery
The purpose of this study is to examine the influence of intensive strength training of the the fractured leg in patients with hip fracture, during admittance in an acute orthopedic ward. The study hypothesis is that the training will improve function and reduce the strength loss in the fractured leg in comparison with the non-fractured leg.

The training or bringing-up of children by parents or parent-substitutes. It is used also for child rearing practices in different societies, at different economic levels, in different ethnic groups, etc. It differs from PARENTING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the child and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.
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.
This project will assess the effectiveness of a novel approach involving patient education and strength training to improve functional recovery after a hip fracture. Participants will be r...
To understand the effects of leg strengthening exercise, we will study the effects of strength training of the legs in four groups of people: (1) osteoarthritis (OA) with knee pain; (2) OA...
Knee Osteoarthritis (OA) accounts for a significant proportion of mobility limitations and is one of the most disabling problems facing the growing population of older adults. The purpose...
1. Simple home-based standing balance training and isometric knee extension exercise for 4 weeks would improve functional ability and knee muscle strength of patients with knee o...
The purpose of this study is: 1. to develop a standardised orientation and mobility training (O&M-training) in the use of an identification/symbol cane by older adults with low vis...
Strength training seems to be an interesting approach to counteract decreases that affect knee extensor strength, muscle mass and muscle quality (force per unit of muscle mass) associated with ageing....
The purpose of this study was to test the effect of a 3-week strength training program of knee extensor muscles on cycling delta efficiency in master endurance athletes. Nine master (age 51.5 ± 5.5...
Abstract We hypothesized that imagery training would improve the fast onset of neuromuscular activation and thereby fast knee extensor isometric torque development. Forty young healthy participants,...
The study investigated changes in motor output and motor unit behavior following 6 weeks of either strength or endurance training programs commonly used in conditioning and rehabilitation. Twenty-eigh...
