${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 A novel video game-based device for measuring stepping performance and fall risk in older people 1) had significantly slower response times than people with low/mild fall-risk scores (PPA score <1) at 1146±182 and 1010±132ms, respectively (P=.005), and multiple fallers and single/nonfallers showed significant differences in RT (883±137 vs 770±100ms; P=.009) and response time (1180±195 vs 1031±145ms; P=0.017). Conclusions: The new dance mat device is a valid and reliable tool for assessing stepping ability and fall risk in older community-dwelling people. Because it is highly portable, it can be used in clinic settings and the homes of older people as both an assessment and training device. © 2011 by the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine.]]> Wed 27 May 2015 11:25:45 AEST ]]> Symmetry of squatting and the effect of fatigue following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction Wed 21 Dec 2016 10:16:44 AEST ]]> Improving lower limb weight distribution asymmetry during the squat using Nintendo WII balance boards and real-time feedback Wed 21 Dec 2016 09:48:49 AEST ]]> Predictors of physical activity levels of individuals following traumatic brain injury remain unclear: A systematic review Wed 21 Dec 2016 09:34:46 AEST ]]> Which factors influence the activity levels of individuals with traumatic brain injury when they are first discharged home from hospital?

Mann-Whitney U tests were performed to assess between-group differences. Results Significant (P<.05) increases in asymmetry in the ACLR group were found for all outcome measures except symmetry index relative to the operated limb. Conclusions People who have undergone ACLR are likely to possess WBA during squats, and this can be assessed using low-cost NWBBs in a clinical setting. Interestingly, the observed asymmetry was not specific to the surgical limb. Future research is needed to assess the relationship between WBA early in the rehabilitation process and long-term outcomes. © 2014 by the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine.]]> Wed 21 Dec 2016 08:45:44 AEST ]]> Coordination of dynamic balance during gait training in people with acquired brain injury Wed 21 Dec 2016 08:38:44 AEST ]]> Hamstring injuries: Risk assessment and injury prevention Wed 21 Dec 2016 08:31:44 AEST ]]> Feasibility of ballistic strengthening exercises in neurologic rehabilitation Wed 21 Dec 2016 08:17:44 AEST ]]> The relationship between lower intelligence, crime and custodial outcomes : a brief literary review of a vulnerable group Wed 17 Oct 2018 15:56:30 AEST ]]> Effects of a home-based step training programme on balance, stepping, cognition and functional performance in people with multiple sclerosis – a randomized controlled trial Wed 17 Aug 2016 08:21:28 AEST ]]> Case studies in exercise as therapy for respiratory conditions Wed 15 Apr 2020 11:40:39 AEST ]]> Standing balance post total knee arthroplasty: sensitivity to change analysis from four to twelve weeks in 466 patients 0.20 and non-redundant (Spearman's rho <0.75).

Conclusion: Increased high velocity ML sway is present at four compared to 12 weeks post-TKA.

All participants reported enjoying the sessions and most felt they were beneficial. No major adverse events occurred. Wii use by the Balance Group was associated with trends for improved balance, with significantly greater improvement in outcomes including the Step Test and Wii Balance Board-derived centre of pressure scores. The Upper Limb Group had larger, non-significant changes in arm function. Conclusions: A Wii-based approach appears feasible and promising for post-stroke balance rehabilitation. A larger randomized controlled trial is recommended to further investigate efficacy. © The Author(s) 2014.]]> Tue 04 Dec 2018 14:26:41 AEST ]]> Early rehabilitation in the intensive care unit: An integrative literature review Thu 26 Mar 2020 12:30:15 AEST ]]> The high-level mobility assessment tool (HiMAT) for traumatic brain injury.

Results: Kinect-derived variables were found to be highly reliable (all ICCs > 0.80), but many were redundant. The final regression model using Kinect-derived variables consisted of the asymmetry scores, mean gait velocity, affected limb foot swing velocity and the difference between peak and mean gait velocity. In comparison with the clinically-derived regression model, the Kinect-derived model accounted for >15% more variance on the MLWS, ST and FR tests and scored similarly on all other measures. Conclusions: In conclusion, instrumenting gait using the Kinect is reliable and provides insight into the dynamic balance capacity of people living with stroke. This system provides a minimally intrusive method of examining potentially important gait characteristics in people living with stroke. © 2015 Clark et al.; licensee BioMed Central.]]> Mon 09 Jan 2017 10:58:53 AEST ]]> Associations between lower limb strength and gait velocity following stroke: A systematic review Mon 09 Jan 2017 10:51:48 AEST ]]> Biomechanical Aspects of Aquatic Therapy: A Literature Review on Application and Methodological Challenges Mon 06 Jan 2020 13:58:08 AEST ]]> Physical activity in people after stroke following discharge from inpatient rehabilitation Mon 04 Feb 2019 10:36:21 AEST ]]> Is restoring flora the same as restoring fauna?

Average scores were 62 (SD 21) for the System Usability Scale and 62 (SD 8) for the Physical Activity Enjoyment Scale. There were no adverse events. Conclusion: The addition of video/computer-based interactive exercises to usual rehabilitation is a safe and feasible way to increase exercise dose, but is not suitable for all. Adding the exercises to usual rehabilitation resulted in task-specific improvements in balance but not overall mobility.
