Upper limb dysfunction is one of common sequelae of stroke which limits daily activities and decreases quality of life of patients, as well as increasing caregiving burden on families. Theta burst stimulation (TBS) is considered to be a beneficial therapy for post-stroke patients with upper limb motor dysfunction, but there is a lack of a high quality evidence. We aim to investigate the effectiveness and safety of TBS for upper limb motor dysfunction in patients with stroke.
There is a need to provide a large amount of extra practice on top of usual rehabilitation to adults after stroke. The purpose of this study was to determine if it is feasible to add extra upper limb practice to usual inpatient rehabilitation and whether it is likely to improve upper limb activity and grip strength.
To confirm the effects of combined upper limb robotic therapy (RT) as compared to conventional occupational therapy (OT) in tetraplegic spinal cord injury (SCI) patients and to suggest the optimized treatment guidelines of combined upper limb RT.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease which affects the performance of the upper extremities. There is no method to evaluate the specific upper extremity endurance of individuals with this disease. The unsupported upper-limb exercise test (UULEX) is a performance test that evaluates upper extremity performance (functionality and endurance).
Spasticity commonly occurs in hemiplegic patients with stroke, and clinical experience indicates that upper limb spasticity is more apparent when patients are standing than when they are lying down. Few reports have investigated how positional changes impact the spasticity of the upper limb and trigger a combined movement called the "hemiplegic posture".
Little is known about whether a simulated upper limb condition reflects a real (burn-injury) upper limb pathology in terms of gait/footprint parameters.
The purpose of this study was to understand the relationship between abdominal muscle strength and recovery of upper limb function, after adjusting for various confounding factors, such as age, gender, and sensory function. We retrospectively analyzed data of 78 sub-acute stroke patients with mild-to-moderate upper limb dysfunction. Participants were divided into two groups, strong and weak, according to the abdominal muscle strength. The improvement of scores on the Simple Test for Evaluating Hand Function...
True arterial aneurysms of the upper limb are rare and their treatment is intended to avoid complications as distal embolization, compression of surrounding neurovascular structures or rupture.
To explore the patterns and trends of upper limb injuries in Major League Baseball (MLB).
Limited research has been dedicated to upper limb (UL) rehabilitation in progressive multiple sclerosis (PMS).
The primary purpose was to evaluate the reliability of the Upper Limb Rotation Test (ULRT). The secondary objective was to evaluate the relationship between the ULRT and two PPTs (SMBT and CKCUEST), trunk rotation range of motion (SRT) and shoulder rotational isometric strength.
Degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM) involves spinal cord compression, which causes neurological decline. Neurological impairment in DCM is variable and can involve complex upper limb dysfunction including loss of manual dexterity, hyper-reflexia, focal weakness, and sensory impairment. DCM can cause progressive loss of manual dexterity, reduced upper limb (UL) function and disability. The purpose of this study was to define relationships between impairment and disability of the UL and determine the impac...
Alien limb syndrome following stroke within the territory of the posterior cerebral artery is exceedingly rare. A right-handed female experienced left homonymous hemianopia, visuospatial neglect, and proprioceptive loss of her left hemi-body. She experienced unintended, involuntary movements of her left arm and hand, which interfered with and disturbed motor actions of daily life performed with her right upper limb. There was no denial of ownership, but she interpreted movements of her left upper limb to be...
Pelvic limb neuropathy is a rare post-anaesthetic complication. In the authors' experiences, the incidence of post-anaesthesia neuropathy is increased following MRI of the proximal metatarsus and tarsal regions when compared to previously reported incidences of post-anaesthetic neuropathy.
Upper-limb paresis is the most common motor impairment post stroke. Current solutions to automate the assessment of upper-limb impairment impose a number of critical burdens on patients and their caregivers that preclude frequent assessment. In this work, we propose an approach to estimate upper-limb impairment in stroke survivors using two wearable inertial sensors, on the wrist and the sternum, and a minimally-burdensome motor task. Twenty-three stroke survivors with no, mild, or moderate upper-limb impai...
To determine the effects of horizontal crank position on economy and upper limb kinematics in recumbent handcycling.
We previously reported transferring seventh cervical (C7) nerve from unaffected side to affected side in patients with spastic hemiplegia due to chronic cerebral injury, to improve function and reduce spasticity of paralyzed upper limb. In the clinics, some patients also reported changes of spasticity in their lower limb, which could not be detected by routine physical examinations. Pennation angle of muscle can indirectly reflect the condition of spasticity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whethe...
Decoding functional movements from electroencephalographic (EEG) activity for motor disability rehabilitation is essential to develop home-use brain-computer interface systems. In this paper, the classification of five complex functional upper limb movements is studied by using only the pre-movement planning and preparation recordings of EEG data.
Complications in the upper thoracic spine are not uncommon after corrective surgery for deformities in adults and adolescents. Proximal junctional failure has been linked to structural osseous or ligamentous failure and proximal junctional kyphosis has been described as an increase in preoperative proximal kyphosis.
After stroke, only 12% of survivors obtain complete upper limb (UL) functional recovery, while in 30% to 60% UL deficits persist. Despite the complexity of the UL, prior robot-mediated therapy research has used only one robot in comparisons to conventional therapy. We evaluated the efficacy of robotic UL treatment using a set of 4 devices, compared with conventional therapy.
Previous studies have indicated that amputation induces reorganization of functional brain network. However, the influence of amputation on structural brain network remains unclear. In this study, using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), we aimed to investigate the alterations in fractional anisotropy (FA) network after unilateral upper-limb amputation. We acquired DTI from twenty-two upper-limb amputees (15 dominant-side and 7 nondominant-side amputees) as well as fifteen healthy controls. Using DTI tractogra...
The aim of any reconstruction is to provide a robust and cosmetically pleasing result that does not significantly alter function. We describe our experience of using the V-Y principle in advancement flaps designed around a distinct perforator to reconstruct soft tissue defects of the upper limb. The shortcomings of fasciocutaneous and fascial flaps requiring skin grafting can be eliminated.
To assess the usefulness of upper limb (UE) motor evoked potential (MEPs) as a marker of motor impairment in a cohort of people with progressive multiple sclerosis (PwPMS).
To estimate the three-year cumulative risk of work-related upper limb disorders (WRULDs) in a cohort of automotive industry workers and to provide a first test of the ability of the European Assembly Worksheet (EAWS) methodology to predict WRULDs.
The improper movement of the scapula during shoulder movement is termed scapular dyskinesis and is an often-forgotten cause of pain and dysfunction. The scapula is a key part of the upper limb kinematic chain and is a vital component of the glenohumeral rhythm; which is a major determinant of the efficiency and efficacy of the upper limb. We provide an overview of the complex regional anatomy of the shoulder girdle and how this allows the scapula to act as a both a dynamic and static stabilizer to the upper...
