In Multiple Sclerosis the multiplicity of physical and psychological dysfunctions have been shown to exhibit a number of life-altering problems such as fatigue, limb weakness, alteration o...
Locomotor training is a new exercise modality that emphasizes task specificity to promote learning and neural plasticity. It ihas been reported to improve walking in patients with stroke, ...
An adequate upper limb function is crucial to independently perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL). Persons with neurological diseases often experience upper limb dysfunction. Upper limb...
In hemiplegic stroke patients, gait performance is affected by impaired walking endurance. Evidence has shown that higher exercise intensity improves cardiovascular fitness, while greater ...
Patients diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) who show objective evidence of attention problems will be randomized to standard medical care (treatment as usual) or ...
Schizophrenia patients exhibit less gamma-frequency EEG/MEG activity (>30 Hz), a finding interpreted as evidence of poor temporal neural organization and functional network communication. Research has...
Deficit in balance control is a common and often an initial disabling symptom of multiple sclerosis (MS). We investigated the role of short-term training in improvement of anticipatory postural adjust...
There is a necessity for numerous sports to develop strength and aerobic capacity simultaneously, placing a significant demand upon the practice of effective concurrent training methods. Concurrent tr...
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system, affecting approximately 2.5 million people worldwide. People with MS may experience limitations in muscular strength and end...
Creatine kinase (CK) is a marker for muscle cell damage with limited potential as marker for training load in strength training. Recent exercise studies identified cell free DNA (cfDNA) as a marker fo...
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
On the job training programs for personnel carried out within an institution or agency. It includes orientation programs.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
