Life-space mobility, an indicator of community mobility, describes person's movements in terms of the distance from home, the frequency of movement and the need of assistance for movement. Executive f...
The purposes of this exploratory project were: (1) to evaluate the impact of power mobility training with a child who has multiple, severe impairments and (2) to determine if the child's spectrum of e...
The current study evaluates the interaction between mastery, depression, and psychological barriers to care among older adults in a primary care setting, including the longitudinal effects of anticipa...
In social-cognitive theory, it is hypothesized that mastery experiences (successfully implementing behaviour change) are a source of self-efficacy, and self-efficacy increases the opportunity for expe...
Aging is associated with a loss of mobility and altered gait mechanics. Loss of function and mobility may be due to or exacerbated by low levels of physical activity in the aged. The mechanisms linkin...
The purpose of this study was to discuss the relation of mastery, social support and depression in patients with depressive disorder. Cross-sectional quantitive study and purposive samplin...
This study is conducted to assess the ease of device mastery of a placebo SYMBICORT TURBOHALER vs a placebo Budesonide/Formoterol SPIROMAX device among healthcare professionals in-training...
Impaired mobility is a major health problem affecting many subjects with diabetes mellitus. It is associated with loss of quality of life and it is a strong predictor for poor health outco...
The project will examine how mobility performance in real life tasks and environments is impacted by the use of specific types of wheeled mobility devices (wheeled walker, manual wheelchai...
Rapidly accumulating evidence indicates that the central nervous system (CNS) plays a pivotal role in mobility function with age-associated CNS changes strongly contributing to declining m...
An electrophoretic technique for assaying the binding of one compound to another. Typically one compound is labeled to follow its mobility during electrophoresis. If the labeled compound is bound by the other compound, then the mobility of the labeled compound through the electrophoretic medium will be retarded.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
The upward or downward mobility in an occupation or the change from one occupation to another.
Presentation of pertinent data by one with special skill or knowledge representing mastery of a particular subject.
Device designed to wear externally to support muscular skeletal system in various movements such as RANGE OF MOTIONS; WEIGHT-BEARING; GAIT; and LOCOMOTION.
