The question this feasibility study aims to answer is whether or not participants are able to accurately and reliably perform and self record the timed up and go test in a non-clinical environment using the Medopad application. This forms part of a larger question of whether or not a more frequently performed TUG test, could act as a physical activity marker.
The purpose of this study is to understand why and how oxidative stress negatively impacts mobility in the elderly, and to determine whether antioxidant supplements can increase vascular health and mobility.
Loss of mobility and cognitive ability are serious conditions that threaten the independence of older adults. The objective of this study is to initiate a line of research to develop a novel therapeutic intervention to enhance both mobility and cognition via neuroplasticity of frontal/executive circuits.
Shoulder slings are commonly worn after shoulder surgery. In geriatric patients, painstaking care is taken to reduce any factors that may increase the chance of experiencing a fall. Currently, it is not understood if wearing a sling affects someone's general gait and balance.
The McMaster Optimal Aging Portal (the Portal) was launched in 2014 to increase public access to trustworthy health information. The Portal helps readers to access evidence-based resources; identify trustworthy messages; and understand scientific findings. Now the investigators want to know whether using the Portal changes what people know and do to stay healthy and mobile. This project will help us to: 1. Understand how middle aged and older adults (age 40+) use the ...
This study tested the effectiveness of the Group Lifestyle Balance™ (GLB) program adapted specifically for people with impaired mobility using standard behavioral approaches for weight loss. The overarching aim of this study was to promote health and reduce chronic disease risk among people with mobility impairment by building an evidence base for weight loss. The central hypothesis was that participants randomized to the intervention arm of the adapted GLB would show signifi...
The purpose of this research study is to find out if mobility (the ability to move around) can be reliably assessed by having the family or care giver caregiver take a video based test for the patient. If this study shows that mobility can be assessed by family or caregiver, this information can be used in situations where mobility cannot be measured directly in patients. A total of 60 patients and 60 family/caregivers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center will take part in thi...
The purpose of this study is to establish the efficacy of a new walker with hydraulically adjustable legs (HAW) in increasing patients' mobility, especially over uneven terrains such as stairs. An attempt will be made to determine patients' satisfaction with this new instrument as well as comparing it to current walkers' effects on mobility, patient confidence, safety and security. In addition, an estimate of financial advantages/savings will be reviewed. Patient using the HAW ...
This is a randomized controlled trial, planned to study the effects of pedometers (digital step counters) on patient mobility following cesarean delivery. The investigators plan to randomize patients at high risk for thromboembolic events to participants with a personalized repeated feedback approach based on pedometer results, versus participants with no feedback to pedometer results.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether Lofstrand or axillary crutches are better suited to treat mobility impairments and improve physical activity levels in rural, resource-limited, settings like the Northern Region of Malawi. To do this, we are proposing the implementation of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to measure and compare the physical activity and satisfaction of mobility aid recipients sorted into two groups - one receiving a set of Lofstrand crutche...
The purpose of the study is to examine the effect of an intervention to improve walking based on motor learning (skill-based) compared to the usual intervention (strength, flexibility and balance-based) on clinical, psychological and laboratory measures of walking and balance of older adults with mobility disability (walking problems).
The investigators propose to conduct a single-blind randomized clinical trial to test the efficacy of a computerized cognitive remediation intervention program on improving locomotion in sedentary seniors, a group at an especially high risk for disability. The hypothesis is that executive functions will respond to the cognitive remediation program and in turn enhance locomotion.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of CK-2127107 versus placebo on skeletal muscle fatigue assessed as change from baseline versus 14 days of treatment in sum of peak torque during isokinetic knee extensions. This study will also assess the effects of CK-2127107 on physical performance via a short physical performance battery (SPPB), stair-climb test and 6 minute walk test.
This study is being performed to evaluate the efficacy of the Live Long Walk Strong rehabilitation program in Veterans 50 years and older. This study will also examine the features of the program that contribute to improved gait speed.
According to several reports, the percentage of persons aged of more than 80 years is going to be doubled for the 25 years, to reach 10 % of the population. This implies an adaptation of practices of taken care for elderly people. Furthermore, the expectancy of life without any disability at 65 years old is 10.4 years and remains much lower than the general expectancy of life, which is of 24.4 years for women and 19.1 years for men. Among predictive factors of loss of autonomy...
Approximately 30% of community-dwelling older adults experience one or more falls per year, resulting in injuries, loss of independence, and reduced quality of life. While there are known physiological risk factors for falls, including poor balance and altered gait patterns, it is now recognized that impaired cognitive functioning is also a risk factor for falls. Within the broad construct of cognition, one specific domain that has been focused on in the falls literature is att...
This study evaluates the effect of the addition of gait training to physical therapy on the gait of geriatric rehabilitation inpatients. Half of the patients will receive gait training with a gait training machine and conventional physical therapy in combination, the other half of the patients will receive conventional physical therapy alone.
This project will combine best-evidence gait and mobility training with best evidence cognitive strategy training to produce a new cognitive-augmented mobility intervention that is expected to optimize long-term functional mobility outcomes for those living with stroke. More importantly, the new cognitive-augmented mobility program (CAMP) will address two crucial outcomes that do not occur with current approaches: 1. Maintenance of mobility gains after discharge from formal reh...
There is an urgent need for interventions to reduce mobility limitations that affect over 15 million older adults and contribute to falls, disability, hospitalization and death. This training will give Dr. James the skills to become an independent researcher developing interventions to decrease mobility limitations, disability and falls in older adults. His multidisciplinary mentorship team, led by Kathleen Bell, MD, has extensive experience with externally sponsored research, ...
The purpose of this study is to validate the user interface of a pediatric power mobility device by establishing that the product is safe and effective use for the intended users.
The objective of this study is to determine the central neural control of mobility in older adults by acquiring data with multiple modalities of neuroimaging (EEG, fNIRS, MRI) and associating these data with a comprehensive set of diverse mobility outcomes (clinic-based walking, complex walking and community mobility measures).
When the dominant arm is compared with the non-dominant arm in overhead athletes there is a serious internal rotation limitation in the dominant arm. Due to overhead activity, adaptive changes in shoulder joint mobility and flexibility are indicated. Internal rotation limitation is often associated with increased external rotation. One of the reason of this adaptive change is posterior shoulder tightness which is common in overhead athletes as well as in volleyball players. The...
The aim of this study is to distinguish COPD patients with expiratory flow limitation in body plethysmography (open loop) from the patients without expiratory flow limitation in body plethysmography (closed loop) with the obtained FOT parameters.
The aim of this study is to the compare clinical outcomes of patients undergoing a revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) with the use of a dual mobility bearing versus a single bearing design with the use of a large femoral head (36mm or 40mm). We hypothesize the use of dual-mobility components in revision THA will be associated with a lower dislocation rate in the first year following surgery.
Variation in organ donation after brain death (DBD) per million population varies markedly between countries, within country regions, between and within intensive care units (ICU). These circumstances also apply to end-of-life decisions in the ICU. The investigators studied all ICU deaths in Sweden between 2014-2017 in ICUs that, as routine, registered treatment plan (no treatment limitation and/or treatment limitation) and DBD. The investigators hypothesized that ICUs ...
