For ambulatory children with DMD, physiotherapy is aimed at protecting ambulation, improving motor performance to the best level and increasing quality of life. The investigators think that the treatment of children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy may become more effective with physiotherapy programs based on the comprehensive physiotherapy evaluation results, including the evaluation of fear of falling. This study investigates the fear of falling in children with Duchenne Mus...
The purpose of this study is to find out if a medication that increases levels of a brain chemical called acetylcholine will improve balance and reduce falls in patients with parkinson's disease who have the problem of very poor balance and are frequently falling or nearly falling on a daily basis. Donepezil, a drug approved for the treatment of Alzheimer's dementia, will reduce falls in subjects with Parkinson's disease and balance impairment.
Fear of falling is a major health problem among community-dwelling older adults that may contribute to avoidance of activities that they are capable of performing. Studies show that the fear of falling may lead to a continual, complex decline in older adults that includes a loss of auto efficacy, restriction of physical activities and social participation, physical frailty, falls and disability. Apart from these effects, the fear of falling may also have financial implications ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate if the level of physical activity, selected physical and psychological risk factors can predict risk of falling in older (≥65) community dwellers.
People with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have balance problems and are at risk of falling. New guidelines recommend balance assessment be included in pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) however no specific tests are recommended. Our goal is to determine the best balance test for identifying COPD patients who are at risk of falling. In this study, COPD patients who report balance problems or falling in the last year will participate in a testing session. Balance, balan...
The aim of the study is to evaluate whether combining cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with task-oriented balance training (TOBT) is more effective than general health education (GHE) together with TOBT in promoting fear of falling and reducing activity avoidance behavior.
The purpose of this randomised (double-blind) controlled exercise intervention trial is to determine whether the whole body vibration (WBV) training can effectively improve physical functioning of older people living in or regularly using services of sheltered housing, reduce their fear of falling, and prevent falling. The study comprises a 10-week training period and a 10-month follow-up period.
BACKGROUND/SIGNIFICANCE: With developments in mobile health and the abundance of smartphones, online consultations have emerged as a popular form of primary care in Sweden. Controversy exists regarding diagnostic accuracy, appropriate prescription of antibiotics, and effects on care-seeking patient behavior following implementation of online consultations. As empirical research is lacking, we seek to evaluate online primary care consultations compared to physical consultations ...
Poor balance is one of the major risk factors for falling in older adults. A Matter of Balance (MOB) is one of the most commonly used fall prevention programs nationally. Despite its name, MOB focuses on managing concerns about falling, and does not include a balance component. We are testing to see if adding a dual-task balance component (balance and mental thinking) to MOB can improve balance and walking better, than MOB only.
This study will investigate whether it is possible, through the development and evaluation of a self-management guide, to improve health related quality of life and concern of falling in people with Parkinson's disease who fall, and reduce caregiver burden in their informal caregivers.
The quality of life of elderly citizens is to a great extent related to the maintenance of independence. The risk of falling and the loss of autonomy are two frequent problems associated with ageing. Although the impact of falls on functional outcomes and morbi-mortality in the elderly is well-established, the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying these falls are poorly understood. To better assess the risk of falling, numerous studies have investigated the use of dynamic an...
Purpose of the study: To identify if an intervention focused on decreasing fear of falling (FOF) in a geriatric primary care setting implemented by an occupational therapist (OT) has the potential to decrease falls and improve physical, psychological and social factors related to FOF. The primary research question: Is there an association between fear of falling among geriatric populations and fall prevention interventions that are offered by occupational therapist in a ...
The purpose of this study is to assesses interventions aimed at improving the distributional impact of a community based health insurance scheme in rural India.
Introduction: the prevalence of falls in adults aged 65 years or older living in the community is 30%, being the second cause of accidental fatal injury and the fifth cause of death. About 20 to 30% of falls result in injuries: 10% constitute serious injuries, from which 5% are fractures. As a result, older adults decrease their mobility, are afraid of falling depressed and socially isolated, increasing the risk of later falls, death and health costs. Falls and their consequenc...
Background: Approximately 750,000 elderly Dutch people fall at least once a year, which often results in physical injuries and a fear of falling, with high costs and far-reaching consequences on functionality, physical activity, quality of life and mental well-being. Falling is not only a burden for patients, it is also a burden for their caregivers. Recurrent falling is a complex problem. However, the pathophysiological background of falls, gait problems and dementia is largel...
Lower limb amputees have reduced joint mobility and strength which negatively influence an individual's ability to maintain balance. Individuals with lower limb amputation also have an increased fear of falling and reduced social participation because of this fear. Improving balance ability, reducing falls and fear of falling through effective balance training interventions would have a number of socio-economic benefits. The aim of the current study is to investigate whether ta...
This project aims to determine the respective impacts of two routine care regarding phobic of falling seniors on the mobility restriction. The investigators used a monocentric, randomized and controlled research according to two parallel groups : physical activity, home assessment and modification (rehabilitation group) versus physical activity, home assessment and modification with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) (rehabilitation and CBT group). The investigators will asses...
Patients often arrive to the Emergency Department with the chief complaint of shortness of breath. The cause of the shortness of breath may be due to many things, such as pneumonia, emphysema, a heart attack, heart failure, and others. It is often very difficult for the physician to determine the cause of the shortness of breath in the first two hours in the Emergency Department. This ambiguity makes treating the patient very difficult. Although a patient could benefit from...

Between 45-73% of people who have had a stroke fall over in the months and years following their stroke. Falls not only lead to injuries such as broken hips, but they may also lead to fear of falling. As a consequence people can get fearful to walk, keep up their household tasks and their social activities such as visiting friends and family. Research has shown that exercises for strength and balance can help both older people and patients after stroke to get fitter and health...
The aim of the study is to investigate the effects of exercise and vitamin D supplementation on reducing falls and injuries in community-dwelling, independent-living women aged 70-79 years of age. The investigators will test the following hypothesis: 1. Exercise including strength, balance and mobility training will improve muscle functioning and body balance, and thus reduce falls by 30% compared with non-exercisers. 2. Vitamin D intake will improve muscl...
