      OBJECTIVE: To determine, using the Muscular Utilization Ratio (MUR) method, whether plantarflexor weakness is among the factors preventing stroke subjects from walking at faster speeds. Potential compensations by the hip flexors were also examined.

      DESIGN: A convenience sample of 17 chronic stroke subjects in a context of a descriptive study.

      BACKGROUND: Gait speed is correlated with the residual strength of the muscles involved in gait in stroke subjects. However, it has not been ...

      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 ...

      BACKGROUND: Although reaching an optimal level of independence during sitting pivot transfer is crucial for individuals with spinal cord injury, little is known regarding the kinematic requirements of this functional task.

      METHODS: Ten males with spinal cord injury performed independent sitting pivot transfers between an initial seat and a target one placed at same (50 cm), lower (40 cm), and higher heights (60 cm) than the initial one, using their usual movement strategies. ...

      The effects of physical activity on cognition in older adults have been extensively investigated in the last decade. Different interventions such as aerobic, strength, and gross motor training programs have resulted in improvements in cognitive functions. However, the mechanisms underlying the relationship between physical activity and cognition are still poorly understood. Recently, it was shown that acute bouts of exercise resulted in reduced executive control at higher relative ...

      BACKGROUND: Sensorimotor impairments secondary to a spinal cord injury affect standing postural balance. While quasi-static postural balance impairments have been documented, little information is known about dynamic postural balance in this population. The aim of this study was to quantify and characterize dynamic postural balance while standing among individuals with a spinal cord injury using the comfortable multidirectional limits of stability test and to explore its association with ...

      3D analysis of the gait of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) was the topic of only a few studies and none of these considered the effect of gait velocity on the gait parameters of children with DMD. Gait parameters of 11 children with DMD were compared to those of 14 control children while considering the effect of gait velocity using 3D biomechanical analysis. Kinematic and kinetic gait parameters were measured using an Optotrak motion analysis system and AMTI force plates ...

      BACKGROUND: Rehabilitation provided through home visits is part of the continuum of care after discharge from hospital following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). As demands for rehabilitation at home are growing and becoming more difficult to meet, in-home telerehabilitation has been proposed as an alternate service delivery method. However, there is a need for robust data concerning both the effectiveness and the cost of dispensing in-home telerehabilitation.

      OBJECTIVE: The objective of ...

      Because of extensor weakness, children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) maintain internal flexion moments at the joints of the lower extremities when they walk. We believe that at the ankle, the plantar flexion moments caused by contractures may contribute significantly to the production of the net ankle flexion moment during the gait in these children. The goal of the present study is to quantify ankle plantar flexion passive moments that may be associated with the presence of ...

      OBJECTIVE: This study compared stair climbing and level walking in healthy adults aged over 40 years.

      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 evaluate the impact of a program of muscle strengthening and physical conditioning on impairment and disability in chronic stroke subjects.

      DESIGN: A randomized pretest and posttest control group, followed by a single-group pretest and posttest design.

      SUBJECTS: Thirteen community-dwelling stroke survivors of at least 9 months.

      INTERVENTION: A 10-week (3 days/week) program consisting of a warm-up, aerobic exercises, lower extremity muscle strengthening, and a ...

      OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the reliability (intertrial, interevaluator) and the concurrent validity of strength measurements obtained with a chair-fixed dynamometer and to recommend a clinical protocol that minimizes standard error of measurement (SEM).

      DESIGN: Within-session repeated measures of maximal static strength of knee flexors and extensors at 30 degrees and 60 degrees of flexion on the chair-fixed and Cybex dynamometers.

      BackgroundPost-stroke physical inactivity is explained by several factors related to the stroke, which have been suggested as the causes and consequences of functional declines and health problems. Therefore, it is important to increase physical activity levels and reduce the time spent in low-energy expenditure activities after a stroke. Since the maintenance of cardiorespiratory fitness is a significant predictor of physical activity levels post-stroke, it may be important to ...

      OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the movement patterns and the muscular demand during a posterior transfer maneuver on a level surface in individuals with spinal cord injuries.

      DESIGN: Six participants with high-level spinal cord injury (C7 to T6) were compared to five participants with low-level spinal cord injury (T11 to L2) with partial or complete control of abdominal musculature.

      BACKGROUND: Developing an optimal level of independence for transfer activities ...

      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 ...

      The spinal cord white and gray matter can be affected by various pathologies such as multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or trauma. Being able to precisely segment the white and gray matter could help with MR image analysis and hence be useful in further understanding these pathologies, and helping with diagnosis/prognosis and drug development. Up to date, white/gray matter segmentation has mostly been done manually, which is time consuming, induces a bias related to the ...
