The OAK device is a technologic system, based on virtual reality. It allows to quickly perform a fall risk assessment integrating clinical indexes of the Brief-BESTest (The Balance Evaluation System Test), and kinematic and posturgraphic indexes...
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...
Because the increasing fall problem, mainly due to an impaired gait and balance ability, this study will investigate fall risk by detecting fall related movement characteristics. Based on the promising results using accelerometry for accurate and objective gait analysis, fall risk will be measured using a triaxial accelerometer. At the moment our group is performing a study titled 'identify subjects at risk for falling using accelerometry'. In this study, fall related movement...
Fall related injuries are major health problem which effect especially elderly population. After experiencing a fall, most of the elderly are unable to resume their previous mobility and the fear of future falls affects their daily life. Falls in elderly population are often related to balance or gait problems. The aim of this study is to assess the influence of balance training on postural and motor control of healthy elderly participants. The study is designed as a parallel i...
In the Lifestyle-Integrated Functional Exercise (LiFE) program, exercises to increase strength and improve balance are embedded into daily life activities. Recurring daily activities and tasks are used as prompts for these exercises so that they are performed multiple times per day. However, implementing the original LiFE program includes high financial requirements and human resources as it comprises one-to-one supervision of participants. Therefore, it is investigated whether...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of an Internet-of-Things bed fall solution when used in a hospital setting.
Falls in old age can lead to severe physical and psychological restrictions. Training interventions for fall prevention can therefore improve the quality of life considerably. With perturbation-based balance training (PBT), which addresses the reactive balance control after a perturbation, a large reduction in the fall rate seems possible. In this study, we are comparing the effects of an Instrumented PBT (on a perturbation treadmill) and a conventional PBT (training under unst...
Approximately one in three older adults fall annually and it is the primary cause of traumatic injury in older adults. While exercise and balance programs have been shown to be effective in reducing fall risk, maintaining behavior change is known to be difficult. Thus additional interventions need to be validated to add to our current armamentarium to reduce falls in older adults. Cognitive training (CT) involves exercises that target specific cognitive tasks, such as memory or...
We investigated the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) and high-impact (HI) exercises in postmenopausal women with low bone mineral density. In summary, WBV exercises are effective in preventing bone loss and WBV and HI exercise programs are effective in decreasing fall risk, increasing health-related quality of life and improving depressive symptoms
Fall prevention programs should include strength and balance training, home hazard assessment and intervention, vision assessment and referral and also medication review with modification/withdrawal. Evidence exists that a tailored exercise program can reduce falls by as much as 54%. Several studies recognize the benefits of the Otago Exercise Program (OEP) on physical functioning and falls reduction in older people. The program includes strength and balance exercises wi...
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a fall prevention program for older adults. Participants assigned to the intervention group will train weekly on a special treadmill that will simulate tripping. Patients not assigned to the tripping program will walk on a standard treadmill.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect that a new fall prevention training program has on the fall incidence of long-term care facility residents at high-risk of falling.
Medical alert devices with automatic fall detection functionality use accelerometry to detect a fall and can signal for help if the wearer forgets to, or is incapable of, pressing the alert button. This can save lives and prevent complications associated with long periods of time spent on the floor after a fall. In this project, the sensitivity and false alarm rate of a commercially available medical alert device will be tested in a population of 200 community-dwelling older ad...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of pain control and functional improvement in patients with degenerative spondylolisthesis treated with "lumbar stabilization exercises" vs "flexor exercises (williams exercises)"
The effectiveness of mandibular exercises as a treatment of muscular Orofacial Pain is yet unknown. This study hypothesized that training exercises can be an effective therapy improving pain perception.
The purpose of this study is to quantify how fall-recovery training improves the fall-recovery response of individuals with chronic stroke. Up to 20 participants with chronic stroke will be recruited from the community. Over six laboratory visits, participants will undergo sessions of fall-recovery training. Each session is comprised of simulated trips and slips as participants stand on a computer-controlled treadmill. Trip-recovery training consists of treadmill-delivered dist...
The purpose of this project is to determine if pre-treatment swallowing exercises can improve post-treatment swallowing function in patients undergoing radiation with or without chemotherapy for advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
