PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the acute effects of whole body vibration at optimal frequency, on postural control in blind subjects. METHOD Twenty-four participants, 12 congenital blind males (Experimental Group), and 12 non-disabled males with no visual impairment (Control Groups) were recruited. The area of the ellipse and the(More)
This study aimed to compare short-term clinical outcomes between intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid (HA), oxygen ozone (O2O3), and the combination of both, in patients affected by osteoarthrosis (OA) of the knee. Seventy patients (age 45-75 years) with knee OA were randomized to intra-articular injections of HA (n=23), or O2O3 (n=23) or combined(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of high-intensity aerobic training (AT) and high-intensity aerobic training combined with resistance training (ie, combined training [CT]) on cognitive function in patients with COPD. METHODS Twenty-eight Caucasian male patients (68.35±9.64 years; mean ± SD) with COPD were recruited and randomized(More)
Aim of this preliminary study was to explore the acute effects of whole body vibration (WBV) on balance and stabilometric parameters, in blind and sighted athletes, during the 20-min post-intervention. Eleven congenitally adult blind athletes (Experimental Group; EG), and ten coetaneous normally sighted soccer athletes (Control Groups; CG) volunteered for(More)
We report on a rare case of Morquio syndrome, an autosomal recessive mucopolysaccharidosis including type IVA, a deficiency of N-acetylgalctosamine-6-sulfatase and type IVB a deficiency of β-galactosidase. A 43-year-old female patient affected by IVB Morquio syndrome underwent instrumental investigation. Conventional plain films of the entire spine, pelvis,(More)
