Given the important role of the shoulder sensorimotor system in shoulder stability, its assessment appears of interest. Force platform monitoring of centre of pressure (CoP) in upper-limb weight-bearing positions is of interest as it allows integration of all aspects of shoulder sensorimotor control. This study aimed to determine the feasibility and(More)
Lower urinary tract dysfunction is common in multiple sclerosis (MS). The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the impact of intermittent catheterization (IC) on the quality of life of patients affected by MS. Between 2007 and 2009, we admitted 23 patients to teach them the technique of IC. Their quality of life was evaluated before and more(More)
Stroke patients have impaired postural balance that increases the risk of falls and impairs their mobility. Assessment of postural balance is commonly carried out by recording centre of pressure (CoP) displacements, but the lack of data concerning reliability of these measures compromises their interpretation. The purpose of this study was to investigate(More)
OBJECTIVES Transcranial magnetic stimulations (TMS) have been used for many years as a diagnostic tool to explore changes in cortical excitability, and more recently as a tool for therapeutic neuromodulation. We are interested in their applications following brain injury: stroke, traumatic and anoxic brain injury. DATA SYNTHESIS Following brain injury,(More)
Stroke rehabilitation has undergone a revolution over the last three decades. Cohort studies have consistently reinforced the importance of post-stroke rehabilitation to stimulate recovery, but the concepts of empirical methods originally proposed by therapists to rehabilitate these patients have not withstood clinical analysis. Functional neuroimaging and(More)
BACKGROUND Deficiencies in both afferent proprioceptive information and efferent motor responses have been independently reported in patients with recurrent anterior shoulder instability. We used a validated force platform method to analyze the association between the stabilometric parameters of the upper limb as representative of the shoulder's(More)
AIMS Lower urinary tract dysfunctions (LUTD) are very common in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), have a significant social impact, while the organic impact is discussed. We studied urinary complications and their risk factors in our cohort of MS patients, in order to improve the management of LUTD in MS. METHODS Between 2004 and 2009, all patients affected by MS(More)
BACKGROUND We studied the possible development of valgus flat foot after transfer of the posterior tibial tendon to the lateral cuneiform, used for surgical restoration of dorsiflexion in brain-damaged adult patients with spastic equinovarus foot. METHODS Twenty hemiplegic patients were reviewed with a mean postoperative follow-up of 57.9 months.(More)
Virtual reality (VR)-based paradigms use visual stimuli that can modulate visuo-motor networks leading to the stimulation of brain circuits. The aims of this study were to compare the changes in blood-oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) signal when watching and imitating moving real (RH) and virtual hands (VH) in 11 healthy participants (HP). No differences(More)
BACKGROUND Non-invasive brain stimulation has been studied as a therapeutic adjunct for upper-limb recovery in patients with stroke. One type of stimulation, paired associative stimulation (PAS), has effects on plasticity in both patients and healthy participants. Lasting several hours, these effects are reversible and topographically specific. OBJECTIVE(More)
