BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study assessed the potential therapeutic benefi t of using HandTutor™ in combination with traditional rehabilitation in a post-stroke sub-acute population. The study compares an experimental group receiving traditional therapy combined with HandTutorTM treatment, against a control group receiving only traditional therapy. (More)
AIM To examine test-retest reliability of time and frequency domain heart rate variability (HRV) in patients 1 month after stroke during rest, paced breathing and light-to-moderate physical activity. METHODS Fifteen patients up to 1 month after stroke underwent two measurements of HRV, with the measurements 4 days apart. Measurements took place under(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to assess the autonomic nerve heart rate regulation system at rest and its immediate response to paced breathing among patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) as compared with age-matched healthy controls. DESIGN Quasiexperimental. SETTING Outpatient clinic. SUBJECTS Ten patients with CRPS and 10(More)
This study aimed to investigate whether any physiological changes might have a clinically significant effect on function in sedentary, institutionalized, older adults treated by a passive training program. A total of 18 subjects (mean age 60.7 +/- 3.4) with intellectual disability (ID) participated. We measured SpO2 (arterial oxygen saturation) before,(More)
AIM To investigate the pattern of overflow facilitated by the use of resistive proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF). METHOD In a group of 12 young, healthy individuals, recruitment of electrical activity into the tibialis anterior (TA) muscle of the right lower limb (RLL) was assessed using surface electromyography (sEMG) during a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the neurophysiological manifestations of the mechanism underlying the effects of Mirror Visual Feedback (MVF) during manual movement. METHOD Thirteen healthy right handed individuals were assessed while performing repeated unilateral wrist extension movements with and without MVF. The effect of MVF on EEG oscillations was studied(More)
