BACKGROUND Studies relating physical exercises and health have contributed to elucidate the influence of sedentary habits on the incidence of cardiovascular diseases. OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of different intensities of aerobic exercises on patients' functional capacity (VO₂(peak)) and quality of life after acute myocardial infarction. METHODS(More)
UNLABELLED In this study we aimed to determine current distribution and short-term analgesic effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in fibromyalgia using different electrode montages. For each electrode montage, clinical effects were correlated with predictions of induced cortical current flow using magnetic resonance imaging-derived(More)
BACKGROUND the assessment of functional capacity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been performed by simple and easy to apply methods that mimic everyday activities, such as the Chester step test (TChester). OBJECTIVES to investigate whether TChester is able to differentiate functional capacity and the magnitude of(More)
BACKGROUND The Glittre-ADL test (TGlittre) is a valid and reliable test for the evaluation of functional capacity and involves multiple physical activities of daily living (PADL), which are known to be troublesome to patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). However, it is still unknown if this test is also able to reflect the functional(More)
