OBJECTIVE The objective of the present study was to determine the correlation between the scores of the Action Research Arm Test (ARAT) and the Box and Block Test (BBT), commonly used tests of upper extremity (UE)function. MATERIAL AND METHOD Forty first-time subacute stroke patients without severe cognitive, language, or motion impairment were(More)
The authors studied 14 cadavers to evaluate the claimed precision of needle placement into segment specific multifidus fascicles when using the "paraspinal mapping" electromyographic technic. Injection of acrylic dye was made according to landmarks proposed by Haig. The dissection showed 86.6 per cent of the injected dye in the correct fascicles. Only 1.4(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Cognitive Sensory Motor Training Therapy (Perfetti's method) vis-à-vis conventional occupational therapy in the recovery of arm function after acute stroke. DESIGN Prospective randomized controlled trial. SETTING Two rehabilitation centers in Bangkok, Thailand. SUBJECTS Forty(More)
BACKGROUND Recovery of upper extremity functions after a severe stroke and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) have generally been less than satisfactory. The "cognitive sensory motor training therapy" is a relatively new method claimed to improve motor control using a specific type of repetitive sensory and motor re-learning protocol. There has been no previous(More)
In order to facilitate precise localization of motor nerves and motor points, and to increase effectiveness and minimize complications of neurolytic blocks. Locations of motor branching points and motor points of 31 cadavers were measured as relative to medial femoral condyle and mid posterior calf line. Needle insertion points 1.5 centimeters and 0.5(More)
