The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of cognitive impairment (CI), gait quality, and balance ability on walking distance and speed in an assisted living facility.
Robot-assisted gait training provide a big therapeutic advantage in functional mobility for postural control.
To assess the efficacy of electromechanical exoskeleton-assisted gait training on walking ability of stroke patients based on ambulatory function, muscle strength, balance, gait speed and capacity.
Neurodegenerative diseases increase in incidence with age. Prior studies using differing populations and gait paradigms have reported various parameters changing with age, some of which correlate with falls and mortality. Here we use three different paradigms to evaluate gait and balance in healthy non-fallers.
The Otago exercise program is a strengthening, balance, and walking program designed to decrease falls among community-dwelling older adults. Few studies have examined the effects of the Otago program in an assisted living environment. The purpose of the current study was to assess the effects of an Otago-based home exercise program in decreasing falls and the risk of falls among older adults living in an assisted living facility.
To investigate combined effects of robot-assisted training (RAT) and physical therapy versus physical therapy only on balance and gait function of chronic stroke patients after botulinum toxin-A (BoNT-A) treatment.
Gait and balance disorders are common among individuals who have experienced a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, little is known about how the neuromuscular control of gait is altered following a TBI.
Wearable sensors offer the potential to bring new knowledge to inform interventions in patients affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) by thoroughly quantifying gait characteristics and gait deficits from prolonged daily living measurements. The aim of this study was to characterise gait in both laboratory and daily life conditions for a group of patients with moderate to severe ambulatory impairment due to MS. To this purpose, algorithms to detect and characterise gait from wearable inertial sensors data were...
Advancements in robot-assisted gait rehabilitation and brain-machine interfaces (BMI) may enhance stroke physiotherapy by engaging patients while providing information about robot-induced cortical adaptations. We investigate the feasibility of decoding walking from brain activity in stroke survivors during therapy using a powered exoskeleton integrated with an electroencephalography (EEG)-based BMI.
Aging is a normal degenerative process that results in a decline in the gait and balance performance of older adults. Interactive cognitive motor training is an intervention that integrates cognitive and motor tasks to promote individuals' physical and cognitive fall risk factors. However, the additive effects of the interactive cognitive motor training on objective quantitative data and comprehensive descriptions of gait and balance warrants further investigation.
Texting during walking has become a very common daily activity and could alter gait performance, especially during locomotion when additional visual attention is demanded, such as obstacle crossing. The purpose of this study was to examine biomechanical changes in obstructed gait characteristics while engaging in a phone texting activity. Gait analyses were performed on ten young healthy adults under the following two tasks: 1) walking and crossing an obstacle set at a 10% of the subject's height and 2) wal...
To investigate the effects of tai chi on balance and gait in stroke survivors.
Pregnancy-related changes in walking speed, gait dynamics, and total physical activity have been reported in past research, but free-living step cadences and their rates of change across pregnancy have not been studied.
Frail and disabled individuals such as assisted living residents are embedded in "care convoys" comprised of paid and unpaid caregivers. We sought to learn how care convoys are configured and function in assisted living and understand how and why they vary and with what resident and caregiver outcomes.
Mobile phone tasks like texting, typing, and dialling during walking are known to impact gait characteristics. Beyond that, the effects of performing smartphone-typical actions like researching and taking self-portraits (selfie) on gait have not been investigated yet.
Gait impairment places older adults and people with Parkinson's disease (PD) at an increased risk of falls when walking over obstacles. Increasing the height of obstacles results in greater challenge to balance however little is known about the demands encountered when negotiating obstacles of greater depth which may be greater for PD who often walk with a short, shuffling gait.
To examine speed-of-processing training (SOPT) in older adults in senior living communities, especially those in assisted living.
Since pregnant women may have potentially greater difficulty maintaining balance, their stability has been investigated by some researchers. However, there is no consensus considering the results. The purpose of our investigation was to compare all the experimental studies focusing on the analysis of gait that have been conducted over the last years to assess their methodological issues and changes induced by pregnancy.
To identify in patients with Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (iNPH) undergoing a Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Tap Test (TT) for consideration of a Ventricular peritoneal shunt: 1. Gait and balance measures which identify symptom change 2. Differences present between pre and post CSF TT scores between patient's classified responders and non-responders 3. Ability of patients with iNPH to accurately quantify change in their gait and balance symptoms from a CSF TT.
Ageing is associated with a loss of balance and mobility. This study was conducted to determine if the use of heat, vitamins alone or heat with vitamins could increase mobility and balance in adults with mobility impairments. Eighty adults in the age range between 55 and 64 were randomly divided into 4 different groups; low level continues heat (LLCH), vitamins (VT) alone, vitamins combined with heat (VT + H), and control group. Subjects were sedentary individuals that were not participating in any balance ...
Foals can follow the herd within hours of birth, but it has been shown that kinetic gait parameters and static balance still have to mature. However, development of dynamic balance has not been investigated.
Spontaneous gait is often asymmetrical in individuals post-stroke, despite their ability to walk more symmetrically on demand. Given the sensorimotor deficits in the paretic limb, this asymmetrical gait may facilitate balance maintenance. We used a split-belt walking protocol to alter gait asymmetry and determine the effects on dynamic and postural balance. Twenty individuals post-stroke walked on a split-belt treadmill. In two separate periods, the effects of walking with the non-paretic leg, and then the ...
Robot-assisted unicompartmental knee surgery has been shown to improve the accuracy of implant alignment. However, little research has been conducted to ascertain if this results in a measureable improvement in knee function post operatively and a more normal gait. The kinematics of 70 OA knees were assessed using motion analysis in an RCT (31 receiving robotic-assisted surgery, and 39 receiving traditional manual surgery) and compared to healthy knees. Statistically significant kinematic differences were s...
Positive sagittal spine balance (PSSB) may adversely influence standing balance in individuals with degenerative spine diseases. PSSB is often corrected with the help of spinal reconstructive surgeries involving multiple vertebral units.
In the original publication, the article title was incorrectly published as 'Reliability and feasibility of gait initiation centre-of-pressure excursions using a Wii® Balance Board in older adults at risk of failing'. The correct title should read as 'Reliability and feasibility of gait initiation centre-of-pressure excursions using a Wii® Balance Board in older adults at risk of falling'.
