Effect of constraint-induced movement therapy on upper extremity function 3 to 9 months after stroke: the EXCITE randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Among patients who had a stroke within the previous 3 to 9 months, CIMT produced statistically significant and clinically relevant improvements in arm motor function that persisted for at least 1 year. Expand
Assessing Wolf Motor Function Test as Outcome Measure for Research in Patients After Stroke
TLDR
This study addresses selected psychometric attributes of the WMFT applied to a chronic stroke population with age- and sex-matched individuals without impairment to support its interrater reliability, construct validity, and criterion validity. Expand
Forced use of hemiplegic upper extremities to reverse the effect of learned nonuse among chronic stroke and head-injured patients
TLDR
The data suggest that learned nonuse does occur in select neurological patients and that this behavior can be reversed through application of a forced use paradigm. Expand
Reducing Frailty and Falls in Older Persons: An Investigation of Tai Chi and Computerized Balance Training
TLDR
The effects of two exercise approaches, Tai Chi and computerized balance training, on specified primary outcomes (biomedical, functional, and psychosocial indicators of frailty) and secondary outcomes (occurrence of falls) are evaluated. Expand
Selected As the Best Paper in the 1990s: Reducing Frailty and Falls in Older Persons: An Investigation of Tai Chi and Computerized Balance Training
Objectives: To evaluate the effects of two exercise approaches, tai chi (TC) and computerized balance training (BT), on specified primary outcomes (biomedical, functional, and psychosocial indicatorsExpand
What Do Motor “Recovery” and “Compensation” Mean in Patients Following Stroke?
TLDR
This Point of View describes the problem and offers a solution in the form of definitions of compensation and recovery at the neuronal, motor performance, and functional levels within the framework of the International Classification of Functioning model. Expand
Associations of Demographic, Functional, and Behavioral Characteristics with Activity‐Related Fear of Falling Among Older Adults Transitioning to Frailty
TLDR
To determine, in a cohort of older individuals transitioning to frailty, whether there are significant associations between demographic, functional, and behavioral characteristics and activity‐related fear of falling, using both the Falls Efficacy Scale (FES) and the Activities‐Specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC). Expand
Intense Tai Chi Exercise Training and Fall Occurrences in Older, Transitionally Frail Adults: A Randomized, Controlled Trial
Objectives: To determine whether an intense tai chi (TC) exercise program could reduce the risk of falls more than a wellness education (WE) program in older adults meeting criteria for transitioningExpand
Reduction in Fear of Falling Through Intense Tai Chi Exercise Training in Older, Transitionally Frail Adults
Objectives: To determine whether an intense tai chi exercise program could reduce fear of falling better than a wellness education (WE) program in older adults who had fallen previously and meetExpand
Variability of motor potentials evoked by transcranial magnetic stimulation depends on muscle activation
TLDR
Stabilizing a stable low intensity contraction helps stabilize cortical and spinal excitability and assesses dependence of single MEP amplitudes on both stimulus intensity and low intensity background muscle activation level. Expand
