The aim of this study was to assess the clinical efficacy and safety of NMES program applied in male soccer players (after ACL reconstruction) on the quadriceps muscle. The 80 participants (NMES = 40, control = 40) received an exercise program, including three sessions weekly. The individuals in NMES group additionally received neuromuscular electrical(More)
BACKGROUND More and more frequently stress urinary incontinence affects young healthy women. Hence, early implementation of effective preventive strategies in nulliparous continent women is essential, including pelvic floor muscle training. An initial evaluation based on the bioelectrical activity of the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) during whole-body(More)
 The use of electrical stimulation has been studied in a variety of wounds emphasizing different variables with regard to provision of therapy. The purpose of this prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study was to evaluate the effect of high-voltage electrical stimulation (HVES) on nonhealing, lower-extremity, Stage II and Stage III(More)
THE AIM OF THE STUDY WAS TO ASSESS THE EFFICACY OF LASER THERAPY (AT DIFFERENT WAVELENGTHS: 940, 808, and 658 nm) for treating pressure ulcers. The primary endpoint in this trial included both the percentage reduction of the ulcer surface area and the percentage of completely healed wounds after one month of therapy (ulcer healing rate). The secondary(More)
The purpose of this clinical study was to assess low frequency, low intensity magnetic fields in the enhancement of the physical rehabilitation of patients after knee endoprosthesis surgery. The study included 62 patients who underwent total knee arthroplasty. Group A consisted of 32 patients who were physically rehabilitated. Group B consisted of 30(More)
The purpose of this in vitro study was to assess the potential influence of low frequency, low intensity magnetic fields (rectangular pulse, 5 mT, 30 Hz) applied in therapy on the temperature, contact electric potential, and magnetization in knee endoprosthesis, which might be dangerous for implantation and stability of knee prosthesis, and later slacking(More)
BACKGROUND Effective treatment strategies for post-stroke muscle spasticity are still a significant interdisciplinary issue and challenge for neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists nurses and physiotherapists. Extracorporeal shock wave (ESW) treatment is a well-supported physical modality used in a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders. The list of(More)
INTRODUCTION The primary lymphedema and chronic venous insufficiency present an important medical problem, and effective physical therapeutic methods to treat this problem are still at the search phase. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) of a high- or low-pressure level in the treatment of primary(More)
The aim of this study was to compare five types of compression therapy in venous leg ulcers (intermittent pneumatic vs. stockings vs. multi layer vs. two layer short stretch bandages vs. Unna boots). Primary study endpoints were analysis of changes of the total ulcer surface area, volume and linear dimensions inside observed groups. The secondary end points(More)
Breast cancer-related lymphedema is one of the complications resulting from treatment. It is defined as arm oedema in the breast cancer patients caused by interruption of the flow of the axillary lymphatic system from surgery or radiation therapy, which results in the accumulation of fluid in the subcutaneous tissue of the arm, with a decrease in tissue(More)
