Design: Single center, prospective, randomized study that will compare activity levels in patients who complete cardiac rehabilitation after clinically indicated percutaneous coronary inte...
The purpose of this study is to: 1. Determine whether the Physical Therapy (PT) & Fitbit® intervention should proceed to a full-scale clinical trial. This decision will be based o...
This is a one year follow up survey study after a Fitbit® challenge study to determine if wearing a Fitbit® motivates residents to increase their physical activity. This study seeks to d...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of voice exercise and voice rest on subject's perception of vocal handicap and communicative participation following Botox injections for ...
This research study is designed to improve understanding about voice disorders that are due to uncontrolled muscle contractions affecting the voice box. The type of voice disorder depends...
The use of the internet and newer activity monitors such as the Fitbit Charge HR to improve exercise adherence is limited. The primary aim of the Move on Virtual Engagement (MOVE-HF) was to investigat...
Exercise demonstrates a dose-response effect on many health outcomes; however, adhering to higher doses of exercise can be challenging, and the predictors of adherence may differ based on exercise vol...
Accurate symptom assessment remains challenging in teen populations. Little is known of usual symptom/response patterns, and self-reported paper diaries have traditionally low compliance rates. Theref...
Research utilizing repeated-measures such as daily assessments with self-report and/or objective measures [e.g., physical activity (PA) monitors] are important in understanding health behaviors and in...
Methamphetamine (METH) use poses a barrier to antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence. We evaluated the efficacy of the individualized texting for adherence building (iTAB) intervention among persons l...
Pathological processes that affect voice production, usually involving VOCAL CORDS and the LARYNGEAL MUCOSA. Voice disorders can be caused by organic (anatomical), or functional (emotional or psychological) factors leading to DYSPHONIA; APHONIA; and defects in VOICE QUALITY, loudness, and pitch.
That component of SPEECH which gives the primary distinction to a given speaker's VOICE when pitch and loudness are excluded. It involves both phonatory and resonatory characteristics. Some of the descriptions of voice quality are harshness, breathiness and nasality.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
A variety of techniques used to help individuals utilize their voice for various purposes and with minimal use of muscle energy.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
