Age and falls history effects on antagonist leg muscle coactivation during walking with balance perturbations.

Inspired by a reliance on visual feedback for movement control in older age, optical flow perturbations provide a unique opportunity to study the neuromuscular mechanisms involved in walking balance control, including aging and falls history effects on the response to environmental balance challenges. Specifically, antagonist leg muscle coactivation, which increases with age during walking, is considered a neuromuscular defense against age-associated deficits in balance control. The purpose of this study wa...

Association between patient attachment to a regular doctor and self-perceived unmet health care needs in Canada: A population-based analysis of the 2013 to 2014 Canadian community health surveys.

Although Canada operates a universal health care insurance system, equitable access to required health care services when needed still poses a challenge for some. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between patient attachment to a family physician and self-perceived unmet health care needs (UHN) in Canada, after adjusting for predisposing, enabling, and need factors of the behavioral model of health services use.

Visual scanning behavior during distracted walking in healthy young adults.

An epidemic of pedestrian accidents when walking while texting suggests that people are less aware of their surroundings during distracted walking, and highlights the importance of visual scanning for pedestrian safety. Quantitative examination of visual scanning during distracted walking is still lacking.

Effects of an Intervention to Improve Life-Space Mobility and Self-Efficacy in Patients following Total Knee Arthroplasty.

Life-space mobility describes the spatial areas through which an individual moves, and the frequency and need for assistance. Although patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) have shown restricted life-space mobility, total knee arthroplasty (TKA) does not improve it beyond preoperative levels. Life-space mobility after TKA was influenced by self-efficacy for walking tasks; thus, an intervention to improve self-efficacy for walking tasks may contribute to better life-space mobility. We provided a walking eve...

Supporting Patient and Family Engagement for Healthcare Improvement: Reflections on "Engagement-Capable Environments" in Pan-Canadian Learning Collaboratives.

Although the involvement of patients in their care has been central to the concept of patient-centred care, patient engagement in the realms of health professional education, policy making, governance, research and healthcare improvement has been rapidly evolving in Canada in the past decade. The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) has supported healthcare organizations across Canada to meaningfully partner with patients in quality improvement and system redesign efforts. This article desc...

Mediation Formulas with Binary Mediators and Outcomes and the "Rare Outcome Assumption".

Samoilenko and Lefebvre correctly note two typos in the formulas in the 2011 paper of Ananth and VanderWeele on placental abruption. Fortunately, to the best of our knowledge, researchers are using our methods papers, and our book on mediation analysis, rather than our paper on placental abruption, to carry out their direct and indirect effect analyses; and in our methods papers, and the book, the formulas are correct. The formulas discussed by Samoilenko and Lefebvre, and in our work, make reference to a "...

Variations of handheld loads increase the range of motion of the lumbar spine without compromising local dynamic stability during walking.

Walking is often considered a beneficial management strategy for certain populations of low back pain patients. However, little is known about how simple challenges that people often encounter, such as carrying loads in the hands, affect the low back during walking.

Qualitative pilot study of veterinarians' perceptions of and experiences with counseling about dog walking in companion-animal practice in southern Ontario.

Dog wal king is beneficial to dogs and their owners, and it supports One Health, an initiative devoted to improving the health of animals and humans. Despite the benefits of dog walking, many dogs and their owners are not engaging in adequate dog-walking exercise. One way to encourage dog walking is for veterinarians to counsel owners on dog walking during veterinary appointments. This pilot study used individual in-person or telephone interviews to understand veterinarians' perceptions of and experiences w...

Backward walking and its application in geriatric patients.

The review summarizes existing information on coaching and potential treatment-and-prophylactic effect of backward walking in elderly. It provides information on the success of the backward walking to restore a stable body position and gait in persons with hemiplegia after stroke, suffering from Parkinson's disease and diabetic foot syndrome. It is noted that the tests with backward walking can be used for diagnostic purposes - to assess the severity of impaired coordination and motor skills and to predict ...

The future burden of cancer in Canada: Long-term cancer incidence projections 2013-2042.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in Canada and the estimated annual spending associated with cancer is approximately $7.5 billion. Projecting the future burden of cancer in Canada is essential for health planning and evaluation. We aimed to estimate the future incidence of cancer in Canada to 2042.

Infographic. Walking on sunshine: scoping review of the evidence for walking and mental health.

Lateral visual occlusion does not change walking trajectories.

Difficulties with walking are often reported following brain damage that causes a lateralized loss of awareness on one side. Whether lateralized loss of awareness has a direct causal impact on walking is unknown. A review of the literature on visually guided walking suggests several reasons why a lateralized loss of visual awareness might be expected to lead to difficulties walking. Here, we isolated and examined the effect of lateralized vision loss on walking behavior in real and virtual environments. Hea...

New evaluation of trunk movement and balance during walking in COPD patients by a triaxial accelerometer.

Individuals with COPD may experience ambulatory difficulty due to both effort intolerance arising from respiratory dysfunction and impaired balance control during walking. However, the trunk movement during walking has not been evaluated or adjusted for patients with COPD. The Lissajous index (LI) visually and numerically evaluates the left-right symmetry of the trunk movement during walking and is useful in clinical practice. In COPD patients, the LI is used as an indicator of the left-right symmetry of th...

The dynamics of the gradient between child's health and family income: Evidence from Canada.

Children from low-income families are on average associated with poorer health. Using data on 8, 019 children from who participated in the first five cycles of the Canadian National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (1994/95-2002/03), we find that the gradient of family income on children's health is statistically significant and becomes more pronounced as children age. This conclusion is consistent with some previous studies and the results are more robust in that the Health Utilities Index Mark 3 ...

Relationship between knee extension strength and gait styles in patients with dementia.

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between knee extension strength and gait performance with walking aids and the threshold level of strength to predict gait performance with walking aids in patients with dementia using ordinal logistic modeling.This cross-sectional, observational correlation study was conducted in 56 hospital inpatients with dementia. Knee extensor strength was measured using a hand-held dynamometer. Gait performance was assessed by determining the walking aid that enables th...

Self-Selected walking speed increases when individuals are aware of being recorded.

Typical gait data collections consist of discrete walking trials where participants are aware when data are being recorded. Anecdotally, some investigators have reported that participants often walk differently between trials or before or after data collection compared to when they know they are being recorded. In addition, walking speed, which affects a number of gait variables, is known to be different when individuals complete discrete and continuous walking trials.

Prevalence and characteristics of cigarillo smoking in Canada: results from the Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey.

Cigarillo smoking has been associated with many adverse outcomes; however, little is known about its use in Canada. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and characteristics of ever and the current use of cigarillo in Canada.

Assessing a novel way to measure step count while walking using a custom mobile phone application.

Walking speed has been associated with many clinical outcomes (e.g., frailty, mortality, joint replacement need, etc.). Accurately measuring walking speed (stride length x step count/time) typically requires significant clinician/staff time or a gait lab with specialized equipment (i.e., electronic timers or motion capture). In the present study, our goal was to measure "step count" via smartphones through novel software and to compare with step tracking software that come standard with iOS and Android smar...

Concurrent Validity of an Automated Footprint Detection Algorithm to Measure Plantar Contact Area during Walking.

Monitoring footprints during walking can lead a better identification of foot structure and abnormalities. Current techniques for footprint measurements are either static or dynamic, with low resolution. This work presents an approach to monitor the plantar contact area when walking, using high speed videography.

Concurrent validity of the GAITRite electronic walkway and the 10-m walk test for measurement of walking speed after stroke.

Walking speed is used to assess functional status, predict recovery, prescribe exercise, and track functional progress after stroke. Determining concurrent validity ensures that results from different tests of walking speed can be compared or used interchangeably. The GAITRite electronic walkway and the 10-m walk test (10MWT) are popular measurement tools of walking speed in the laboratory and in clinical settings, respectively.

The ability of the instrumented tandem walking tests to discriminate fully ambulatory people with MS from healthy adults.

People with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) experience walking and balance deficits at the initial phases of the disease, even when classified as only minimally disabled. Complex balance tasks, such as tandem walking, are probably more sensitive in detecting mild balance difficulties compared to the standard traditional tests in this population.

Idiopathic toe walking-A follow-up survey of gait analysis assessment.

Toe-walking is a normal variant in children up to 3 years of age but beyond this a diagnosis of idiopathic toe-walking (ITW) must be considered. ITW is an umbrella term that covers all cases of toe-walking without any diagnosed underlying medical condition and before assigning these diagnosis potential differential diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, peripheral neuropathy, spinal dysraphism and myopathy must be ruled out. Gait laboratory assessment (GLA) is thought to be useful in the evaluation of ITW, and k...

Body weight support through a walking cane in inexperienced users with knee osteoarthritis.

Walking canes are a self-management strategy recommended for people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) by clinical practice guidelines. Ensuring that an adequate amount of body-weight support (%BWS) is taken through the walking cane is important as this reduces measures of knee joint loading.

Facilitation of supplementary motor area excitability improves dual-task walking in young adults.

Activations of the DLPFC and SMA have been shown to correlate with dual-task walking. However, very few investigations have directly perturbed the activations of these areas to establish a cause-and-effect relationship. The objectives of this study were: 1) to investigate the role of DLPFC and SMA in dual-task walking using rTMS and 2) to determine whether the secondary task difficulty mediates the roles of these cortical areas. Nineteen young healthy adults were divided into two groups: Count-by-3 s (N...
