To gain insight into determinants of physical activity in wheelchair users with spinal cord injury or lower limb amputation, from the perspective of both wheelchair users and rehabilitation professionals.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Disability and rehabilitation
To (1) evaluate the level of agreement between individually calibrated accelerometers and the self-reported Physical Activity Recall Assessment for People with Spinal Cord Injury when assessing modera...
Limited evidence examines the association of psychological factors, such as fear of movement and pain catastrophizing, with musculoskeletal pain patterns in active manual wheelchair users with spinal ...
Pressure ulcers, by definition, are caused by external forces on the tissues, often in the regions of bony prominences. Wheelchair users are at risk to develop sitting-acquired pressure ulcers, which ...
Up to 80% of wheelchair users are affected by shoulder pain. The Clinical Practice Guidelines for preservation of upper limb function following spinal cord injury suggest that using a proper wheelchai...
In this study, we combine a wheelchair and an intelligent robotic arm based on electrooculogram (EOG) signal to help patients with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) accomplish a self-drinking task. The main...
The overall purpose of this project is to pilot test a manual wheelchair (MWC) training program based on motor learning theory to improve wheelchair propulsion for manual wheelchair users ...
People with mobility disabilities are at greater risk than the general population for incurring health problems. Many of these conditions are preventable through behavior and lifestyle cha...
The project is intended to modify the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) for manual wheelchair users. It will determine if the new measure is a better measure of community independence...
This is a single blind randomized controlled trial study which will conducted on people with paraplegia wheelchair users. The objectives of this study is to investigates the effects of 16 ...
The overall purpose of this pilot randomized control trial (RCT) is to determine the efficacy of the high-intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise protocols for the WheelMill System (WM...
Pathologic conditions which feature SPINAL CORD damage or dysfunction, including disorders involving the meninges and perimeningeal spaces surrounding the spinal cord. Traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, infections, and inflammatory/autoimmune processes may affect the spinal cord.
Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.
Repair of the damaged neuron function after SPINAL CORD INJURY or SPINAL CORD DISEASES.
Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS feeding the SPINAL CORD, such as the anterior and paired posterior spinal arteries or their many branches. Disease processes may include ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; and ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS leading to ISCHEMIA or HEMORRHAGE into the spinal cord (hematomyelia).
Neoplasms located in the space between the vertebral PERIOSTEUM and DURA MATER surrounding the SPINAL CORD. Tumors in this location are most often metastatic in origin and may cause neurologic deficits by mass effect on the spinal cord or nerve roots or by interfering with blood supply to the spinal cord.
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
