Impairments, disabilities and health related quality of life after treatment for breast cancer: a follow-up study 2.7 years after surgery
TLDR
Pain is the most frequent assessed impairment after breast cancer treatment with strong relationship to perceived disability and health related QOL. Expand
Stop using the Ashworth Scale for the assessment of spasticity
TLDR
The validity and reliability of the Ashworth Scale is insufficient to be used as a measure of spasticity in the upper and lower extremities. Expand
Late morbidity after treatment of breast cancer in relation to daily activities and quality of life: a systematic review.
TLDR
Few studies investigated the relationship between late morbidity of the upper limb after treatment of early breast cancer and ADL/QOL, and the strength of this relationship was rather low. Expand
Long term treatment related upper limb morbidity and quality of life after sentinel lymph node biopsy for stage I or II breast cancer.
TLDR
Two years after surgery for breast cancer, patients show significantly less treatment related upper limb morbidity, perceived disability in ADL and worsening of QOL after SLNB compared with ALND. Expand
Vibro- and Electrotactile User Feedback on Hand Opening for Myoelectric Forearm Prostheses
TLDR
Performance of a grasping task is investigated for different hand opening feedback conditions on 15 healthy subjects and validated on three patients, finding vibrotactile stimulation enhances the performance compared to the nonfeedback conditions, but at the cost of an increased duration. Expand
The effect of impedance-controlled robotic gait training on walking ability and quality in individuals with chronic incomplete spinal cord injury: an explorative study
TLDR
Robotic gait training using an impedance-controlled robot is feasible in gait rehabilitation of chronic iSCI individuals and leads to improvements in walking ability, muscle strength, and quality of walking. Expand
Feasibility study into self-administered training at home using an arm and hand device with motivational gaming environment in chronic stroke
TLDR
Findings indicate that home-based arm and hand training with physical support from a dynamic orthosis is a feasible tool to enable self-administered practice at home, allowing an increase in training dose with respect to treatment in supervised settings. Expand
Treatment-Related Upper Limb Morbidity 1 Year after Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy or Axillary Lymph Node Dissection for Stage I or II Breast Cancer
TLDR
One year after treatment of breast cancer, there is significantly less upper limb morbidity after SLNB compared with ALND, and Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that ALND could predict a decrease of range of motion in forward flexion, abduction, strength of shoulder abductors, grip strength, and shoulder-related ADLs and an increase in the circumference of the upper arm. Expand
Phantom breast sensations and phantom breast pain: A 2‐year prospective study and a methodological analysis of literature
TLDR
The first aim of this study was to assess prospectively the incidence of phantom breast sensations and phantom breast pain in a sample of patients treated for breast cancer by means of a modified radical mastectomy. Expand
Adaptation strategies of the lower extremities of patients with a transtibial or transfemoral amputation during level walking: a systematic review.
TLDR
Adaptation strategies at the level of the hip to compensate for the loss of plantar flexion power and facilitate forward progression in patients with a transtibial or transfemoral amputation are described. Expand
