: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic autoimmune disease causing complex hand disability. A reliable tool for hand function assessment in SSc is the Cochin Hand Functional Disability Scale (CHFS). More recently, a short-form CHFS of 6 items (CHFS-6) has been developed.

Background The Multidimensional Task Ability Profile (MTAP) is a patient-reported outcome (PRO) measure that provides a global score linked to the physical demand characteristics of work, but needs to...
Functional disability is a common health burden in older adults and follows a hierarchical pattern. Physical performance measures are useful for the objective estimation of functional disability. This...
The Patient-Rated Elbow Evaluation (PREE) is a joint-specific, self-administered outcome measure used to determine the level of pain and disability in patients with various elbow pathologies. The aim ...
Cross-cultural adaptation of the Interaction with Disabled Persons Scale (IDPS) into Greek. The IDPS was forward and back-translated by two bilingual physiotherapists and a Greek-English translator, ...
This study investigates the validity and reliability of the Subjective Perception of Post-Operative Functional Impairment of the Arm (SPOFIA) scale in patients with postoperative breast cancer.
This study, we are aim to make the Turkish version validity and reliability of the Cranifacial Pain and Disability Inventory, Jaw Functional Limitation Scale-20, and Jaw Functional Limitat...
The purpose of this study is to determine the reliability and concurrent validity of the figure-of-eight method of measuring hand edema in the burn patient population. Establishing the r...
Increasing the number of Turkish version of the questionnaire evaluating hand use, adding the scales that evaluate the selective movements of the upper limb to the evaluations will increas...
The aim of this study was to translate the Pain Sensitivity Questionnaire, which was developed to determine the level of pain sensitivity of individuals, to Turkish and to evaluate the val...
The family has a primary prescription in the identification of the chewing disorder in children to plan appropriate rehabilitation program and implementation of the training. Therefore, it...
A painful disability in the hand affecting the finger or thumb. It is caused by mechanical impingement of the digital flexor tendons as they pass through a narrowed retinacular pulley at the level of the metacarpal head. Thickening of the sheath and fibrocartilaginous metaplasia can occur, and nodules can form. (From Green's Operative Hand Surgery, 5th ed, p2137-58).
Evaluation of the degree of acceptance for the immediate variables associated with a procedure or program designed to change behavior. This includes the social significance of the goals of treatment, the social appropriateness of the treatment procedures, and the social importance of the effects of treatments.
Behavioral manifestations of cerebral dominance in which there is preferential use and superior functioning of either the left or the right side, as in the preferred use of the right hand or right foot.
Light-induced change in a chromophore, resulting in the loss of its absorption of light of a particular wave length. The photon energy causes a conformational change in the photoreceptor proteins affecting PHOTOTRANSDUCTION. This occurs naturally in the retina (ADAPTATION, OCULAR) on long exposure to bright light. Photobleaching presents problems when occurring in PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY, and in FLUORESCENCE MICROSCOPY. On the other hand, this phenomenon is exploited in the technique, FLUORESCENCE RECOVERY AFTER PHOTOBLEACHING, allowing measurement of the movements of proteins and LIPIDS in the CELL MEMBRANE.
RED BLOOD CELL sensitivity to change in OSMOTIC PRESSURE. When exposed to a hypotonic concentration of sodium in a solution, red cells take in more water, swell until the capacity of the cell membrane is exceeded, and burst.
Autoimmune disorders are conditions that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. Normally the immune system's white blood cells help protect ...
