Previous research on healthy individuals reported improvements in balance control following a purported ankle proprioception-training program. The training may have resulted in a general rather than a specific enhancement of ankle proprioception. To test this hypothesis, subjects were constrained at the hips and trunk with a custom-made thoracolumbosacral(More)
Frontal gaits (FG) and parkinsonian gaits (PG) are common neurological gait abnormalities in older adults. It may be difficult to distinguish these gaits as they share common clinical characteristics such as unsteadiness, slowing, and shuffling. Of 488 community-residing subjects in an aging study, 11 were diagnosed with FG and 9 with PG at baseline(More)
BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is commonly found in individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and may exacerbate TBI-related symptoms. Nocturnal polysomnography (NPSG) is considered the gold standard for detecting the presence of sleep apnea. However, there is a limitation with its use known as the "first-night effect" (aberrant(More)
Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), commonly known as concussion, is one of the most common neurologic disorders [1]. Based on emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and deaths, an estimated 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually in the United States [2]. About 80% of TBIs that occur each year are mild TBI [3]. Since many(More)
BACKGROUND Recent reports indicate that gait dysfunction can occur early in the course of cognitive decline suggesting that motor and cognitive functions in older adults may share common underlying brain substrates, pathological processes, and risk factors. OBJECTIVE This study was designed to report the association between gait and cognition in older(More)
Mobility disabilities represent the most prevalent disability among seniors. Emerging evidence indicates that executive functions play an important role in maintaining mobility. However, the use of cognitive remediation programs to enhance mobility has not been investigated in a full-scale randomized control trial. The CREM study is a single-blind(More)

Interim estimates of 2014/15 influenza vaccine effectiveness in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza-related hospitalisation from the Serious The 2014/15 influenza season in Canada has been characterised to date by early and intense activity dominated by influenza A(H3N2). A total of 99.0% (593/599) hospitalisations for laboratory-confirmed influenza(More)
INTRODUCTION Although there has been a decline in the incidence of TBI in the general population, the rate of TBI in older adults has increased. Increased age has been long recognized as a predictor of worse outcomes after TBI. Despite the growing number of TBI in the elderly, our understanding of the long-term consequences of TBI is quite limited. (More)
