Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome With Dynamic Splinting

The Purpose of this study is to examine the effect of using the Carpal Tunnel Dynasplint® System on patients diagnosed with CTS in a randomized, controlled, cross-over study.

Dynamic Splinting After Total Knee Arthroplasty

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a dynamic splinting system for knee flexion contracture following a total knee arthroplasty.

Splinting Versus Not Splinting of the Distal Lower Extremity After Intramedullary Nailing for Tibial Fractures

Two standards of care exist with regards to posterior splinting post-operatively. The proponents of splinting feel the additional immobilization decreases the stress on the soft tissue, s...

Dynamic Gait Index in Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy

The purpose of this study is to assess validity and reliability of Dynamic Gait Index (DGI) in patients with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy

Randomised, Evaluation-blinded, Crossover, Controlled Study Assessing Dynamic Hand Splinting in Adults With Post-stroke Hemiplegia (Orthox)

Upper limb spasticity is currently mainly managed with local toxin treatments. Recent studies suggested combining botulinum toxin injections with splinting to optimise rehabilitation in sp...

Dynamic stability during walking in children with and without cerebral palsy.

Cerebral palsy (CP) is associated with a high risk of falling during walking. Many gait abnormalities associated with CP likely alter foot placement and center of mass (CoM) movement in a way that aff...

Validity and reliability of the Dynamic Gait Index in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.

Dynamic Gait Index (DGI) is a performance-based tool can be applied in a short time and evaluates dynamic balance and gait ability.

The influence of impression coping splinting on the accuracy of the open-tray technique.

The objective of this study was to examine the effect of splinting of the impression copings on the accuracy of the cast when the open-tray technique is used. An epoxy master cast with 3 implants was ...

Do the type of walking surface and the horse speed during hippotherapy modify the dynamics of sitting postural control in children with cerebral palsy?

Hippotherapy is described as a rehabilitation method for postural control in children with cerebral palsy. Horse's movements can be manipulated during hippotherapy's sessions with horse walking on dif...

Effectiveness of the virtual reality on cognitive function of children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy: a single-blind randomized controlled trial.

Cerebral palsy is a term covering non-progressive motor and cognitive impairments caused by lesions of the brain. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of virtual reality-based rehabilitation ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Use of a device for the purpose of controlling movement of all or part of the body. Splinting and casting are FRACTURE FIXATION.

A gamma-emitting radionuclide imaging agent used in the evaluation of regional cerebral blood flow and in non-invasive dynamic biodistribution studies and myocardial imaging. It has also been used to label leukocytes in the investigation of inflammatory bowel diseases.

Systematic study of the body and the use of its static and dynamic position as a means of communication.

A dynamic actin-rich extension of the surface of an animal cell used for locomotion or prehension of food.

The dynamic collection of metabolites which represent a cell's or organism's net metabolic response to current conditions.
