Efficacy of physiotherapy interventions late after stroke: a meta-analysis
TLDR
A variety of physiotherapy interventions improve functional outcomes, even when applied late after stroke, and challenge the concept of a plateau in functional recovery of patients who had experienced stroke and should be valued in planning community rehabilitation services. Expand
During walking elders increase efforts at proximal joints and keep low kinetics at the ankle.
TLDR
In elders, hip and knee concentric powers during the stance phase were higher than in young subjects despite their decreased ankle plantarflexor kinetics, and gait analysis, when carried out at controlled and comparable speeds, can better pinpoint features of each group of subjects than the comparison at self-selected speed. Expand
Subtle neurological abnormalities as risk factors for cognitive and functional decline, cerebrovascular events, and mortality in older community-dwelling adults.
TLDR
In this sample of older community-dwelling persons without overt neurological diseases, multiple SNAs were associated with cognitive and functional decline and independently predicted mortality and CVEs. Expand
Effectiveness of fingertip light contact in reducing postural sway in older people.
TLDR
Results indicate that the effectiveness of LT in reducing postural sway may be greater in older than in younger persons, perhaps because in older persons haptic cues from upper extremity might counterbalance sub-clinical sensory loss in the lower extremities. Expand
Glenohumeral subluxation in hemiplegia: An overview.
This review summarizes the recent advances in glenohumeral subluxation (GHS) in hemiplegic patients and analyzes the reliability and validity of clinical evaluation and the effectiveness of differentExpand
Different motor tasks impact differently on cognitive performance of older persons during dual task tests.
TLDR
Findings suggest that treadmill walk does not involve brain areas susceptible to interference from the introduction of a cognitive task, as they suggest that motor and cognitive performances decline during dual task testing with overground walking. Expand
Pusher behaviour: A critical review of controversial issues
TLDR
Findings on controversial issues regarding PB, namely correlation with neglect, neural correlates and underlying mechanisms are critically summarized, and the existence of a multicomponential network reliable for upright posture control is suggested. Expand
Shoulder subluxation after stroke: relationships with pain and motor recovery.
TLDR
Glenohumeral subluxation is a factor associated with shoulder pain development and with arm motor recovery and should be treated in the acute stage of hemiplegia. Expand
The Scale for Contraversive Pushing: A Reliability and Validity Study
TLDR
The results provide support for use of the Scale for Contraversive Pushing based on its reliability and validity using a modified cutoff criterion to make a diagnosis of PB. Expand
Types of article published in physiotherapy journals: a quantitative analysis.
TLDR
The distribution of different types of article in physiotherapy journals is similar to other disciplines and the improvement of RCTs represents an important move in the right direction for evidence-based physiotherapy research. Expand
