The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of the low power laser therapy on the acute inflammatory process. Male Wistar rats were used. The rat paw oedema was induced by sub-plantar injection of carrageenan, the paw volume was measured before and 1, 2, 3 and 4 h after the injection using a hydroplethysmometer. To investigate the(More)
OBJECTIVES The Sit-to-Stand test (SST) is accepted and utilized during functional assessments of COPD patients, along with the 6-Minute Walk test (6MWT). Since there is a lack of evidence in literature regarding the neurophysiological effectiveness of SST compared to 6MWT, the present study is justified with the purpose of assessing the neurophysiological(More)
OBJECTIVES The proposal of the present study is based on mobilizing the nervous system of the upper hemiplegic limb of stroke victims using the Upper Limb Neurodynamic Test (ULNT 1) and electromyographic analysis of the biceps brachii muscle. METHODS A pre-experimental study was carried out with pretest and posttest repeated measurements on five stroke(More)
This previous study was performed to compare the antero-posterior and medium-lateral displacements and the speed of displacement of the COP of healthy children and compare them to children with cerebral palsy type spastic diparesy. This study had the participation of 10 healthy children (6 girls and 4 boys), between 5 and 10 (7,6 +/- 2,1) years old, and(More)
[Purpose] The aim of the present study was to analyze the psychometric properties of the Stroke Specific Quality of Life (SS-QOL) scale for the assessment of social participation following a stroke. [Methods] A preliminary analysis was performed of the SS-QOL items that address the participation category. For this, the scoring patterns of the answers of(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare muscle activity and joint moments in the lower extremities during walking between subjects with stroke and control subjects. METHOD We compared fifteen healthy volunteers and fifteen stroke patients, with the same age gender and weight data had been compared by electromyography. The system of signals acquisition used consisted of five(More)
BACKGROUND According to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), the participation component is considered to be the most complex component characterized in existing instruments that assess quality of life related to health (HRQoL). Questionnaires such as the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP) and the Stroke-Specific(More)
This study aimed to identify the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health categories addressed by the assessment tools commonly used in post-stroke rehabilitation and characterize patients based on its evaluation model. [Subjects and Methods] An exploratory, descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted involving 35 individuals(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantify and compare parameters of muscle electrical activity and ground reaction force of lower limb during gait in post-stroke patients with left or right side functional involvement. METHOD Fifteen post-stroke volunteers with left side functional involvement were age, gender and weight matched and compared to fifteen post-stroke volunteers(More)
