OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of three protocols (Adapted Physical Activities, Wii Fit(®), Adapted Physical Activities + Wii Fit(®)) on the balance of independent senior subjects. DESIGN Case comparison study. SETTINGS Healthy elderly subjects living in independent community dwellings. SUBJECTS Thirty-six subjects, average age 75.09 ± 10.26(More)
We hypothesized that exercise performance is adjusted during repeated sprints in order not to surpass a critical threshold of peripheral fatigue. Twelve men randomly performed three experimental sessions on different days, i.e. one single 10 s all-out sprint and two trials of 10 × 10 s all-out sprints with 30 s of passive recovery in between. One trial was(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine cardiorespiratory fitness, resting cardiac parameters, and muscle oxygenation changes in soccer players having undergone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and to assess the benefits of a one-leg cycling (OLC) aerobic training program performed during the rehabilitation period. DESIGN Randomized clinical trial. SETTING(More)
Several authors have reported alterations in vasodilation during effort in patients with dystrophinopathies, in which a lack of neuronal NO synthase is thought to lead to functional muscle ischemia. In order to determine changes in muscle oxygenation during effort in patients with Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) and assess the parameters' links with disease(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether erector spinae muscle oxygenation (OXY) and blood volume during a progressive isoinertial lifting evaluation (PILE) are modified by an exercise therapy program. DESIGN Pre- (t1) and post- (t2) exercise therapy experimental design. SETTING Hospital. PARTICIPANTS Subjects with chronic low back pain (LBP group) (n=24) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the cardiorespiratory responses, blood lactate concentration and perceived exertion between 1-leg cycling and arm cranking. DESIGN Comparison of exercise modalities. SETTING Hospital. PARTICIPANTS Fourteen men who had undergone knee surgery were evaluated during rehabilitation. INTERVENTIONS Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to determine the benefits of a functional retraining programme (with or without daily isokinetic reinforcement of the trunk muscles) in patients with lower-back pain. METHOD Two groups of 30 patients took part in the study. The control group (CG) underwent a four-week reconditioning program in a day hospital, whereas a(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the shoulder joint complex in high level swimmers. We formulated the assumption that high level swimming weakens this complex, resulting in laxity of the anterior-inferior capsuloligamentous structures with atraumatic anterior instability, impingement with rotator cuff tendonitis and muscle imbalance of the rotator cuff muscles.

AIM The aim of this study was to analyse the evolution of the isokinetic performance of the knee flexor and extensor muscles in soccer players before and after intra-articular anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (Kennet-Jones). METHODS Two isokinetic evaluations were carried out before surgery and after rehabilitation (i.e. 4 months later) in 18(More)
