The effect of foot position and chair height on the asymmetry of vertical forces during sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit tasks in individuals with hemiparesis
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: The asymmetrical motor pattern of persons with hemiparesis influences the performance of activities that require interactions between the two sides of the body.
METHODS: Twelve subjects with a chronic hemiparesis were asked to stand up and sit down at their natural speed in the following foot positions: (1) spontaneous; (2) symmetrical; (3) asymmetrical with the affected foot placed backward; and (4) asymmetrical with the unaffected foot placed backward. Forces were recorded ...

The Kinesthetic and Visual Imagery Questionnaire (KVIQ) for Assessing Motor Imagery in Persons with Physical Disabilities: A Reliability and Construct Validity Study
[ PUBLICATION ]
PURPOSE: To benefit from mental practice training after stroke, one must be able to engage in motor imagery, and thus reliable motor imagery assessment tools tailored to persons with sensorimotor impairments are needed. The aims of this study were to (1) examine the test-retest reliability of the Kinesthetic and Visual Imagery Questionnaire (KVIQ-20) and its short version (the KVIQ-10) in healthy subjects and subjects with stroke, (2) investigate the internal consistency of both KVIQ ...

OBJECTIVE: To measure the contribution of passive stiffness to the ankle plantarflexor moment during gait in subjects with hemiparesis early after stroke. The relationship of passive stiffness with gait speed was also examined.
DESIGN: Cross-sectional, descriptive.
PATIENTS AND OTHER PARTICIPANTS: A sample of convenience of 14 patients (54.7+/-10.9 yrs) with a hemiparesis for less than 5 months and 11 healthy controls (50.6+/-11.6 yrs).
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The contribution of passive ...

Frontal and sagittal plane analyses of the stair climbing task in healthy adults aged over 40 years: what are the challenges compared to level walking?
[ PUBLICATION ]
DESIGN: Eleven subjects performed at their comfortable speed.
BACKGROUND: The number of parameters studied during stair climbing has been limited, in particular in the frontal plane.
METHODS: Time-distance parameters and three-dimensional kinematic data were obtained using foot-switches and an Optotrak system. Ground reaction forces were collected with a force platform embedded in the ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine 10-m comfortable walking speed and 6-minute distance in healthy individuals and individuals after stroke and to assess the level of disability associated with poor walking endurance after stroke.
DESIGN: Descriptive study in which comfortable walking speed over 10 m and distance covered in 6 minutes (6-minute walk test) were compared between healthy subjects and subjects after stroke.
SUBJECTS: Twelve healthy subjects and 14 subjects after stroke.

Side difference in the hip and knee joint moments during sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit tasks in individuals with hemiparesis
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: No study has reported the differences between sides in the net muscular moment of lower limbs of subjects with hemiparesis during sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit tasks in various foot positions. Moreover, the asymmetry of lower-joint moments has not yet been related to muscular weakness of the lower limbs in this population.
METHODS: A convenience sample of 12 individuals (mean age (standard deviation): 49.7 (9.0) years) with chronic hemiparesis due to stroke were asked to ...

OBJECTIVES: The purposes of this study were: (1) to identify the primary (hip) and secondary (neighboring joints) impairments during gait in subjects with a total hip arthroplasty total hip arthroplasty, (2) to determine which impairments persist when controlling for gait speed and (3) to study the relationships between primary and secondary impairments in order to describe the locomotor strategies used by these patients.DESIGN. This cross-sectional study compared the gait patterns of ...

Evaluating motor recovery early after stroke: Comparison of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment and the Motor Assessment Scale
[ PUBLICATION ]
This study compared the measurements of the Motor Assessment Scale (MAS) to that of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA), a reliable and valid test for motor function in stroke patients. Thirty-two patients (20 men, 12 women) with a mean age of 60 years, and a mean time since stroke of 64.5 days, were tested with the FMA and MAS on two consecutive days. The Spearman correlation coefficient for total FMA and total MAS scores was 0.96. For selected items, significant (p < 0.001) correlations ...

Motor Learning Produces Parallel Dynamic Functional Changes during the Execution and Imagination of Sequential Foot Movements
[ PUBLICATION ]
The aim of the present positron emission tomography study was to measure the dynamic changes in cerebral activity before and after practice of an explicitly known sequence of foot movements when executed physically and to compare them to those elicited during motor imagery of the same movements. Nine healthy volunteers were scanned while performing both types of movement at an early phase of learning and after a 1-h training period of a sequence of dorsiflexions and plantarflexions with ...

Modulation of the response to a somatosensory stimulation of the hand during the observation of manual actions
[ PUBLICATION ]
Observation of hand movements has been repeatedly demonstrated to increase the excitability of the motor cortical representation of the hand. Little attention, however, has been devoted to its effect on somatosensory processing. Movement execution is well known to decrease somatosensory cortical excitability, a phenomenon termed ‘gating’. As executed and observed actions share common cortical representations, we hypothesized that action observation (hand movements) should also modulate ...

Functional cerebral reorganization following motor sequence learning through mental practice with motor imagery
[ PUBLICATION ]
The goal of the present study was to examine, via positron emission tomography, the functional changes associated with the learning of a sequence of foot movements through mental practice with motor imagery (MI). Following intensive MI training over several days, which led to a modest but significant improvement in performance, healthy subjects showed an increase in activity restricted to the medial aspect of the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC), and a decrease in the cerebellum. These main ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the immediate and retention effects of a 4-week training program on the performance of locomotor-related tasks in chronic stroke.
DESIGN: Randomized, controlled pilot study with 2-month follow-up.
SETTING: Rehabilitation center.
SUBJECTS: A convenience sample consisting of 12 chronic stroke subjects was used. Subjects were randomly assigned to the experimental or the control group. Three subjects withdrew from the study.

BACKGROUND: The ability to generate vivid images of movements is variable across individuals and likely influenced by sensorimotor inputs.
OBJECTIVES: The authors examined (1) the vividness of motor imagery in dancers and in persons with late blindness, with amputation or an immobilization of one lower limb; (2) the effects of prosthesis use on motor imagery; and (3) the temporal characteristics of motor imagery.
METHODS: Eleven dancers, 10 persons with late blindness, 14 with ...

The aims of the present study were to quantify the impairment in ankle coactivation on the paretic and non-paretic sides of subjects with hemiparesis and to examine the relationship of ankle coactivation with postural instability, motor deficit of the paretic lower extremity and locomotor performance. Electromyography of the medial gastrocnemius (MG) and tibialis anterior (TA) muscles were recorded bilaterally during gait in 30 subjects (62.1+/-9.9 years) who had suffered a recent stroke ...
