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
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
Efficacy of a tailored rehabilitation program for systemic sclerosis.
TLDR
The association and of district-specific and global rehabilitative techniques conceived and tailored for SSc patients improves disability, HRQoL, hand and face disability and functionality, with its effects partially maintained at the follow-up. 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
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
Tools for Observational Gait Analysis in Patients With Stroke: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Based on critical appraisal, the Gait Assessment and Intervention Tool shows a good level of quality, and its use in stroke rehabilitation is recommended. Expand
Sexual Function in Italian Women with Systemic Sclerosis Is Affected by Disease-related and Psychological Concerns
TLDR
In SSc, sexual function, although not different from controls, is influenced by specific disease-related and psychological concerns, and should be included in patient evaluations and assessed in daily clinical practice. 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
