UNLABELLED Limitation in daily physical activity is one of the reasons for total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, studies of the effects of THA or TKA generally do not determine actual daily activity as part of physical functioning. We determined the effect of THA or TKA on patients' actual physical activity and body(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The sit-to-stand (STS) movement is a skill that helps determine the functional level of a person. Assessment of the STS movement has been done using quantitative and semiquantitative techniques. The purposes of this study were to identify the determinants of the STS movement and to describe their influence on the performance of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the most important barriers to and facilitators of the level of everyday physical activity in persons with a spinal cord injury after discharge from the rehabilitation centre. DESIGN Qualitative study with both cross-sectional and retrospective questions. SUBJECTS Thirty-two persons with a spinal cord injury. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess physical fitness and physical activity in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients and whether fatigue is associated with impaired physical fitness and impaired physical activity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten patients with quiescent IBD and fatigue (fatigue group [FG]) based on the Checklist Individual Strength-Fatigue score of ≥35 were(More)
BACKGROUND Although clinical experience indicates that prolonged use of a prosthesis after transfemoral amputation (TFA) is related to a higher incidence of low back pain (LBP), few data are available to substantiate this impression. Therefore, in a TFA population, we investigated the prevalence of LBP and its relationship with years since amputation, as(More)
Children who are wheelchair-dependent are at risk for developing unfavorable physical behavior; therefore, assessment, monitoring and efforts to improve physical behavior should start early in life. VitaMove is an accelerometer-based activity monitor and can be used to detect and distinguish different categories of physical behavior, including activities(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of acute treatment on ictal behavioral functioning of patients with migraine via ambulatory accelerometry. BACKGROUND The inability to carry out daily activities often complicates migraine attacks. Research into the effects of pharmacological drugs on this outcome parameter in the acute treatment of migraine has been based(More)
