Test-retest reliability of three dimensional gait analysis: including a novel approach to visualising agreement of gait cycle waveforms with Bland and Altman plots.
TLDR
Reliability of 3DGA has been estimated for the gait laboratory and Bland and Altman plots of gait cycle waveforms provide a useful addition to reliability analysis.
Maximum Voluntary Isometric Contraction: Investigation of Reliability and Learning Effect
TLDR
Investigation of different aspects of reliability of MVIC found that ICCs were higher for the more experienced investigator and a learning effect was demonstrated in a relatively new user of the system.
Virtual reality rehabilitation of balance: assessment of the usability of the Nintendo Wii® Fit Plus
TLDR
Patients with balance impairment as a result of neurological disease reported very high levels of usability and enjoyment when performing selected Nintendo Wii Fit Plus balance exercises and games, which may have implications for patient compliance with exercise.
OUTCOME OF PREGNANCIES COMPLICATED BY EARLY VAGINAL BLEEDING
TLDR
It is suggested that early gestational vaginal bleeding is one predictor of suboptimal pregnancy outcome and the combined risk remained approximately doubled even for primigravidae and for women without prior illness or pregnancy complications.
Assessment of undergraduate physiotherapist clinical performance: investigation of educator inter-rater reliability
TLDR
Physiotherapy educators demonstrated a high level of reliability in the assessment and marking of undergraduate physiotherapy student performance using a standardised clinical assessment form.
Effectiveness of conventional versus virtual reality-based balance exercises in vestibular rehabilitation for unilateral peripheral vestibular loss: results of a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Virtual reality-based balance exercises performed during vestibular rehabilitation were not superior to conventional balance exercises during Vestibular Rehabilitation but may provide a more enjoyable method of retraining balance after unilateral peripheral vestIBular loss.
The Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project classification: correlation with imaging, associated complications, and prediction of outcome in acute ischemic stroke.
TLDR
The OCSP classification identifies two major groups (TACI and other 3 groups combined) who behave differently with respect to post stroke outcome, and further study with larger numbers of patients will be required to allow better discrimination of OCSP subtypes.
Effectiveness of conventional versus virtual reality based vestibular rehabilitation in the treatment of dizziness, gait and balance impairment in adults with unilateral peripheral vestibular loss: a
TLDR
Advances in the gaming industry have allowed mass production of highly sophisticated low cost virtual reality systems that incorporate technology previously not accessible to most therapists and patients, which may improve conventional vestibular rehabilitation but efficacy must first be demonstrated.
Reliability of surface electromyography timing parameters in gait in cervical spondylotic myelopathy.
TLDR
The timing parameters of RF, TA and MG designated by this method were considered sufficiently reliable for use in clinical practice, however the reliability of BF was questionable.
