2016-07-27 03:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of the new wearable hip assist robot developed by Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd., Korea) to gait rehabilitation in elderly adults and stroke patients.

Description

Randomized, two treatment groups

Number of Subjects : 54 subjects (n=27 per group)

Group 1 : gait rehabilitation with hip assist robot / 10 sessions (5sessions - treadmill gait training / 5sessions - overground gait training), 30min per session

Group 2 : gait rehabilitation without hip assist robot / 10 sessions (5sessions - treadmill gait training / 5sessions - overground gait training), 30min per session

Primary objective is to demonstrate the effects of hip assist robot on spatio-temporal parameters measured by motion capture system (Motion Analysis Corporation, Santa Rosa, CA, USA), muscle activation patterns measured by surface electromyography (sEMG) (Noraxon Inc., Scottsdale, AZ, USA), metabolic energy cost parameters measured by portable cardiopulmonary metabolic system (Cosmed K4B2, Rome, Italy) and foot pressure distribution measured by F-Scan Mobile system (Tekscan Inc., South Boston, MA, USA).

Secondary objective is to demonstrate the effects of hip assist robot on motor function improvement evaluated by Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Tinetti performance oriented mobility assessment (POMA), Korean version Modified Bathel index (K-MBI), Modified Rankin Scale (MRS), Functional Ambulation Classification (FAC), Fugl-Meyer assessment for lower extremity (FMA), Korean version Fall Efficacy Scale (K-FES), Manual Muscle Test (MMT) and Range of Motion (ROM).

Studies and research concerning the psychological, educational, social, vocational, industrial, and economic aspects of REHABILITATION.

Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.

Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.

A form of compensated hydrocephalus characterized clinically by a slowly progressive gait disorder (see GAIT DISORDERS, NEUROLOGIC), progressive intellectual decline, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. Spinal fluid pressure tends to be in the high normal range. This condition may result from processes which interfere with the absorption of CSF including SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, chronic MENINGITIS, and other conditions.
