Based on their preliminary quantitative gait findings suggesting that limited passive hip extension range is a key functionally limiting impairment affecting gait, the investigators propose a supervised, specific stretching exercise with the aim to improve both peak hip extension and overall gait performance. While one goal is to demonstrate that reduced peak passive hip extension is a key, functionally significant, but reversible, impairment another is to improve our understa...
This randomized clinical trial targets 248 community-dwelling older adults with impaired mobility (i.e. walking slowly; gait speed < 1.20 m/s). The trial compares a 12 week "standard-plus" program of strength, endurance, flexibility plus task specific timing and coordination training to a standard 12 week strength, endurance and flexibility program. The primary outcome is gait speed at 12 weeks. Secondary and tertiary outcomes represent components of the intervention and measur...
Previous reports have the evidence implicating gait velocity may affect kinematic parameters. However, how the gait velocity will influence kinematic parameters remain unclear. The purpose of this research is to find out kinematic characteristics among different gait velocity. To do this, it will provide a reference for future prospective studies or investigations and make us fully understand the impact of gait velocity.
Cholinergic deficiency in the brain can be related to gait and balance problems in Parkinson disease (PD). Recent clinical trials suggested a beneficial role of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AchEI) on gait in PD. In this study, the investigators are planning to study the influence of AchEI on a brain network for gait and balance in PD. As gait problem is prominent in postural instability and gait disturbance (PIGD) subtype, this study will focus on the patients with PIGD phe...
The objectives of this study are to investigate if Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) will impact back and leg flexibility over both the short-term and the long-term. It is hypothesized that NET will improve flexibility and that these changes are durable.
Randomized trial of patients with cerebrovascular accident (CVA) receiving traditional and body weight supported (BWS) gait training. Participants are enrolled and randomized upon entry into acute care and gait is evaluated within 48 hours of discharge from the rehabilitation hospital. Gait analysis is used to determine which of the two groups achieved gait parameters most similar to the normal gait of an age-matched population.
Modern concepts of gait rehabilitation after stroke favor a task-specific repetitive approach. This study aims to test the efficacy on gait recovery of a mechanized gait trainer enabling nonambulatory patients to have the repetitive practice of a gait-like movement.
Whole body vibration (WBV) can help to improve muscle flexibility by stimulating the neuromuscular functions. But there is a dearth in the literature to prove its effectiveness in improving the flexibility of the upper limb muscles. Therefore the purpose of the study is to determine the effects of vibration on improving upper limb flexibility. This experimental research will be conducted by recruiting participants at the age of 19 to 27 with no histories of injuries on the uppe...
Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) sensorimotor techniques are increasingly used to improve spatio-temporal gait parameters and postural stability in the course of Parkinson's Disease and following stroke. Nonetheless, the neurophysiological underpinnings of NMT-mediated gait recovery is still poorly understood. The aim of the study was to investigate the central mechanisms of connectivity related to the application of Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation (RAS) in PD gait rehabilitation....
The present study is designed to investigate whether the behavioral and cognitive functioning might predict the outcome of the rehabilitation of gait related abilities in orthopedic patients submitted to elective surgery (total hip arthroplasty). The evaluation of gait related abilities will be performed with specific physiatric tests, while cognitive functioning will be studied by means of an extended neuropsychological battery.
PURPOSE: this study aimed to investigate the effect of opposite knee position on hamstring flexibility BACKGROUND Hamstrings tightness is one of the most common findings in patients with LBP. It is thought that, due to the attachments of hamstrings to the ischial tuberosity, hamstrings tightness generates posterior pelvic tilt and decreases lumbar lordosis, which can result in LBP. HYPOTHESES There will be significant difference in the hamstring flexibility with changing ...
In the literature, most of the studies examining the gait characteristics and balance separately or examining the relationship between them are on patients with COPD. No study examining gait parameters in other obstructive pulmonary patients such as bronchiectasis and asthma was found.A convincing link between gait disturbances and falls in COPD patients is still unknown and further research is needed. Therefore, the purpose of our study; gait parameters and balance in individ...
Regular exercise is a cornerstone in the prevention and the management of cardio-metabolic risk factors. Some of the beneficial effect of exercise training occurs through metabolic flexibility' enhancement. Metabolic flexibility is the ability to respond or adapt to conditional changes in metabolic demand, and previous literature has shown that individuals living with obesity have an impaired metabolic flexibility compared to lean individuals. However, there is a lack of empiri...
The current study would examine whether increases in endogenous dopaminergic activity via tyrosine and the (presumed) excitation of these by anodal tDCS of the dlPFC could causally be related to cognitive flexibility as measured by task switching and reversal learning. Additionally, the study will test whether the Val158Met-polymorphism in the catechol- O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene could also predict the effect of TYR supplementation, as this gene is involved in DA degradat...
Robot-assisted gait training can improve gait ability of patients with Parkinson's disease by repeating a normal gait pattern with high intensity. This study is a feasibility study to investigate whether robot-assisted gait training can be applied to improve walking autonomy in patients with Parkinson 's disease.
The purpose of this study is to identify the flexibility radiograph(s) that can most accurately predict the curve behaviour after surgical correction of AIS. With these findings, we hope to give further guidance for the selection of fusion levels and to incorporate different dynamic radiographs into the Lenke Classification, leading to a more universal application that can consistently lead to good surgical and clinical outcome.
The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of an automatic gait trainer (Lokomat) handled by physical therapists compared with categorized gait training by physical therapists in ambulatory stroke patients. Gait speed, gait distance and gait symmetry are used to evaluate study effects. Hypotheses: 1) The Lokomat improves stroke patients gait speed, distance and symmetry more than categorized gait training.
Gait disorders and falls are frequent in patients with parkinsonian syndromes. In patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), these signs occurred later during the course of the disease in comparison to patients with other degenerative parkinsonian disorders. The pathophysiology of these symptoms are still not fully understood. Gait initiation challenges the balance control system as the body moves from an upright stable static posture to a continuously unstable gait. The aim of th...
The purpose of this study is to compare the acute effect of the use of different thermal modalities associated to the training of passive flexibility of the hamstring muscles in the amplitude of motion of the knee extension.
