Higher perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) contributes to adverse physiologic alterations in the vascular wall, and thus could potentially limit normal physical function later in life. We hypothesize t...
Gait speed worsens with the presence of obesity, and is a powerful marker of functional dependence. Accordingly, gait speed could be a factor that improves or worsens the relationship between obesity ...
There is a clinical need to be able to reliably detect meaningful changes (0.1 to 0.2 m/s) in usual gait speed (UGS) considering reduced gait speed is associated with morbidity and mortality.
The aim of this study was to develop a simple visualized approach to classify persons into meaningful gait speed categories. Footprints of 310 instrumented gait analyses of 190 geriatric persons (mean...
The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of an automatic gait trainer (Lokomat) handled by physical therapists compared with categorized gait training by physical therapis...
We aim to investigate the association of midlife dietary and lifestyle factors on cardiac functional changes in the elderly. We hypothesize that even in those without clinically manifest c...
Comparison of the experimental group that applied the speed of the robot-assisted gait training constantly and the control group that applied the gradual increase of the speed of the robot...
This study measures the 4 metre gait speed (4MGS) test in patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). The investigators are interested to see whether usual walking speed in IPF pati...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a 12-month physical activity counseling program, compared to usual care, improves physical performance in a sample of older veterans. The...
Tests designed to assess various aspects of neurocognitive function and/or dementia.
Impairment of the vestibular function of both inner ears which can cause difficulties with balance, gait, VERTIGO, and visual blurring.
Vegetative state refers to the neurocognitive status of individuals with severe brain damage, in whom physiologic functions (sleep-wake cycles, autonomic control, and breathing) persist, but awareness (including all cognitive function and emotion) is abolished.
Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.
