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.
Gait initiation is associated with changes in the steady state and experiencing an external perturbation during initiation of gait could further threaten balance stability.
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.
Gait and balance impairment is associated with poorer functional recovery after stroke. The cerebellum is known to be strongly implicated in the functional reorganization of motor networks in patients with stroke, especially for gait and balance functions.
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.
Assisted living (AL) residents engage in very low levels of physical activity (PA) placing them at increased risk for mobility disability and frailty. But many residents in AL may not perceive the need to increase their PA. This study explored the experience, meaning and perceptions of PA in 20 older adults in assisted living. Factors associated with PA were also examined. Qualitative data were collected using semi-structured interviews and analyzed using Colaizzi's (1978) phenomenological methodology. Six ...
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.
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...
The rapid growth of the assisted living industry has coincided with decreased levels of nursing home occupancy and financial performance. The purpose of this article is to examine the relationships among assisted living capacity, nursing home occupancy, and nursing home financial performance. In addition, we explore whether the relationship between assisted living capacity and nursing home financial performance is mediated by nursing home occupancy. This research utilized publicly available secondary data, ...
Specific gait parameters are associated with falls and injury. It is important to identify walking episodes in order to determine the associated gait parameters. Frail older people have a greater risk of falling due to increased probability of inactivity. Therefore, detection and analysis of their physical activities becomes significant. Furthermore, ascertainment of gait parameters and non-sedentary activities for frail older group is difficult in free living environments - an area which hasn't been explor...
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.
After cochlear implant (CI) surgery, some patients experience vertigo, dizziness and/or deficits in vestibulo-ocular reflexes. However, little is known about the effect of CI surgery on balance control. Therefore, we examined differences in stance and gait balance control before versus after CI surgery.
To examine speed-of-processing training (SOPT) in older adults in senior living communities, especially those in assisted living.
Balance and postural control are integral to training and sport performance. Demands on posture are contextual and vary in different ways depending on the specific physical activity.
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.
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 ...
Children with lower limb loss face gait and balance limitations. Prosthetic rehabilitation is thus aimed at improving functional capacity and mobility throughout the developmental phases of the child amputee. This review of literature was conducted to determine the characteristics of prosthetic gait and balance among children and adolescents with lower-limb amputation or other limb loss.
The aim of this study was to investigate changes in balance control for stance and gait tasks in patients 2 years before and after vestibular neurectomy (VN) performed to alleviate intractable Meniere's disease. Amplitudes of trunk sway in roll and pitch directions were measured for stance and gait tasks in 19 patients using gyroscopes mounted at the lower-back. Measurements before VN and 2 years later were compared to those of healthy age-matched controls (HC). We also examined if changes in trunk sway amp...
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'.
Cerebellar hemorrhage (CH) is a severe life-threatening disorder, and surgical treatment is often required in an emergency situation. Even in cases in which the surgical procedure is successful, functional recovery is likely to be delayed because of cerebellar symptoms such as ataxia and gait disturbance. Here, we briefly review the efficacy of hybrid assistive limb (HAL) treatment in neurosurgical practice and propose a new comprehensive treatment strategy for CH to facilitate early neurological recovery. ...
CSM typically manifests with a slow, progressive stepwise decline in neurologic function, including hand clumsiness and balance difficulties. Gait disturbances are frequently seen in CSM patients, with more advanced cases exhibiting a stiff, spastic gait.
The primary study aim was to determine if repeated exposure to trips and slips with increasing unpredictability while walking can improve balance recovery responses when predictive gait alterations (e.g. slowing down) are minimised. The secondary aim was to determine if predictive gait alterations acquired through exposure to perturbations at a fixed condition would transfer to highly unpredictable conditions.
