2020-01-20 11:45:07 | BioPortfolio


This study is to assess the effect of balance exercise on dynamic balance and physical function in 80 patients with different grades of primary knee osteoarthritis (KOA).


80 patients with primary knee osteoarthritis divided into 4 groups according to the Kellgren and Lawrence grading scale (KL): Group 1: 20 patients with grade I KOA Group 2: 20 patients with grade II KOA Group 3: 20 patients with grade III KOA Group 4: 20 patients with grade IV KOA

- Patients will undergo pre- and post- exercise assessment with:

1. Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index (WAOMAC)

2. Modified Stare Excursion Balance test

3. Timed up and Go test

- Exercise program includes:

1. Lower extremity kinesthesia and balance exercise program

2. Strength exercise program

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.

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.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

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.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
