Plaster splinting was used to decrease severe elbow flexor spasticity in a patient with an upper motor neuron lesion. A series of plaster splints were applied over a period of several weeks that allowed elbow extension yet controlled the amount of flexion. The design of the splint was effective in reducing the spasticity, which was probably a result of the(More)
OBJECTIVE. This study sought to determine interinstrument reliability of the Jamar electronic dynamometer and pinch gauge compared with the commonly used Jamar hydraulic dynamometer and B&L Engineering mechanical pinch gauge. METHOD. Twenty men and 20 women were tested for grip strength with the two different dynamometers, and 17 men and 25 women were(More)
This study evaluated the effect of water temperature on hand volume during volumetric measurement using the water displacement method. Four volumetric measurements were taken for 24 normal subjects using four different water temperatures--5 degrees C (41 degrees F), 20 degrees C (68 degrees F), 35 degrees C (95 degrees F), and 45 degrees C (113 degrees F).(More)
EMG biofeedback was used during a 4-week treatment program to decrease upper trapezius activity related to tension headaches. The headaches were believed to be caused by general tension and anxiety and affected the patient's ability to adequately attend to activities of daily living, including child care, homemaking, and vocational activities. The program(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the reliabilities of two methods of measuring finger circumference. Traditionally, finger circumference is determined clinically by the use of a tape measure. In this study, a tape-measure device for recording finger circumference utilizing a torque meter was compared with the traditional method to determine(More)
This study examined the physical properties of six common brands of short-stretch compression bandages used to treat lymphedema. The physical properties examined were (a) maintenance of pressure over a 12-hr period, (b) variability of pressure across the width of the bandages, and (c) variability of pressure when the bandages were wrapped with a 50%(More)
