The subjects' movement in their centers of gravity (COGs) during their static and dynamic balance tests was measured with their eyes open in each sling(More)
Lymphedema is one of the most common complications after breast cancer surgery. There are many diagnostic tools for lymphedema, but no standard method yet exists. Progressive Resistance Exercise (PRE) is expected to improve lymphedema without additional swelling. This study showed the therapeutic effects of PRE on lymphedema by using ultrasonography to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the difference of range of motion (ROM) of ankle according to pushing force, gender and knee position. METHODS One hundred and twenty-eight healthy adults (55 men, 73 women) between the ages of 20 and 51, were included in the study. One examiner measured the passive range of motion (PROM) of ankle by Dualer IQ Inclinometers and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the ultrasonic effects of progressive resistance exercise (PRE) for the treatment of patients with breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL). SUBJECTS AND METHOD The 32 patients with diagnosed BCRL were randomly divided into two groups: the PRE group and the non-PRE group. After complex decongestive physiotherapy, PRE was performed(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to assess the improvement in stiffness in patients with postmastectomy lymphedema (PMLE) after intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) using acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging and evaluate the effects of different IPC pressures. METHODS We randomly assigned 45 patients with PMLE (stage II) to three groups based on the IPC(More)
