OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to quantify the motor adaptations in the frontal plane made by unilateral transtibial amputees (UTAs), with special regard to: (1) abduction/adduction moment at the hip and knee valgus moment in the frontal plane; (2) pelvic and thorax obliquity; and (3) stride length and gait speed. METHODS 15 Males with unilateral(More)
INTRODUCTION The limitations in performing functional activities in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy are important. The use of virtual reality systems is a new treatment approach that reinforces task-oriented motor learning. The purpose of this guide is to study the impact of the use of virtual reality systems in the improvement and acquisition(More)
Cardiovascular disease is the main health problem in developed countries. Prevention is presented as the most effective and efficient primary care intervention, whereas cardiac rehabilitation programs are considered the most effective of secondary prevention interventions; however, these are underused. This literature review examines the effectiveness and(More)
The goal of this study was to assess the effect that uncertainty induced by dual task conditions has on reaction-response time parameters and gait patterns of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) with a 2-6.5 EDSS grade. The study involved eleven patients - nine women and two men - diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (age, 48±10years; height, 1.65±0.1m;(More)
Currently the base of the neuro-rehabilitation is the combination of neuroplasticity and functional task-based therapies. The stimulation of the brain and changes in the effective application of joint in the therapeutic use of robots. These devices are applicable for the purpose of functional replacement assistance or treatment. We present a review of the(More)
The Gait Assessment and Intervention Tool (GAIT) has been recently developed for gait assessment in patients with stroke, and it is considered as a tool that may identify clinically relevant deviations from normal gait and quantifies relevant changes in gait because of an intervention. The objective was to analyze the GAIT psychometric properties in(More)
INTRODUCTION As a result of neurophysiological injury, stroke patients have mobility limitations, mainly on the side of the body contralateral to the lesioned hemisphere. The purpose of this study is to quantify motor compensation strategies in stroke patients during the activity of drinking water from a glass. MATERIAL AND METHODS Four male patient with(More)
