One-legged stance sway of older adults with and without falls.

Postural instability is a common problem among older people, and it is associated with mobility impairments, activity limitation and fear of falling. The evaluation of postural control can contribute ...

Neural and muscular factors both contribute to plantar-flexor muscle weakness in older fallers.

Plantar-flexor muscles are key muscles in the control of postural sway. Older fallers present lower maximal plantar-flexor performance than older non-fallers; however, the mechanisms underlying this m...

Using clinical balance tests to assess fall risk among established unilateral lower limb prosthesis users: cutoff scores and associated validity indices.

Clinicians are routinely required to make decisions about fall risk among lower limb prosthesis (LLP) user. These decisions can be guided by standardized clinical balance tests, but require population...

Obstacle Negotiation, Gait Variability and Risk of Falling. Results from "Gait and Brain Study".

Gait variability is an early fall predictor. However, it is unknown how gait variability of older adults at high risk of falls is affected by an obstacle negotiation task. We aimed to compare gait per...

The contribution of the instrumented Timed-Up-and-Go test to detect falls and fear of falling in people with multiple sclerosis.

Fear of falling (FoF) and actual falling typifies two common complaints in people with MS (PwMS). The objective of our study was to examine the Instrumented Timed-Up-and-Go test (ITUG) in relation to ...

Study of the Relationship Between the Strength of Ankle Movement Muscles and Postural Parameters in Elderly Fallers: Towards New Strategies for Screening and Management

The quality of life of elderly citizens is to a great extent related to the maintenance of independence. The risk of falling and the loss of autonomy are two frequent problems associated w...

Comparative Effectiveness Research of Dual-task and Single-task Balance Training in People With Stroke

The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of dual-task training at impairment, disability, and participation levels for stroke survivors and investigate possible factors aff...

Influence of Alfacalcidol on Falls in Osteopenic/Osteoporotic Postmenopausal Women (ALFA Study)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of alfacalcidol 1 µg daily on the number of fallers in postmenopausal, alendronate-treated, osteopenic or osteoporotic women. primary ...

The Effect of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) on Motor and Cognitive Functions in Idiopathic Fallers

The concurrent performance of two tasks, i.e., dual tasking (DT), is a common and ubiquitous every day phenomena. For example, people frequently walk while talking on a cellphone or drive ...

Balance Recovery Training for Fall Prevention in Retirement Communities

The goal of this translational research study is to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of balance recovery training as an on-site fall prevention exercise intervention for older adults ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.

Homeostatic control of the immune system by secretion of different cytokines by the Th1 and Th2 cells. The concentration dependent binding of the various cytokines to specific receptors determines the balance (or imbalance leading to disease).

A POSTURE in which an ideal body mass distribution is achieved. Postural balance provides the body carriage stability and conditions for normal functions in stationary position or in movement, such as sitting, standing, or walking.

The balance between acids and bases in the BODY FLUIDS. The pH (HYDROGEN-ION CONCENTRATION) of the arterial BLOOD provides an index for the total body acid-base balance.

The cells in the erythroid series derived from MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS or from the bi-potential MEGAKARYOCYTE-ERYTHROID PROGENITOR CELLS which eventually give rise to mature RED BLOOD CELLS. The erythroid progenitor cells develop in two phases: erythroid burst-forming units (BFU-E) followed by erythroid colony-forming units (CFU-E); BFU-E differentiate into CFU-E on stimulation by ERYTHROPOIETIN, and then further differentiate into ERYTHROBLASTS when stimulated by other factors.
