Physical function is often compromised as a result of stroke event. Although interventions propose different strategies that seek to improve stroke survivors’ physical function, a need remains to evaluate walking training studies aimed at improving such physical function. The aim of this review was to assess the available literature that highlights the impact of walking training on enhancing walking for stroke survivors. We performed a systematic literature review of online databases – Google Scholar, PubMed, CINHAL, Cochrane Library, Scopus, and EBSCO – with the following inclusion criteria: manuscript p...

The aim of this study was to investigate the phenomenon of activity (increased activity in response to monitor wear) and determine the minimum wear time of accelerometers when objectively measuring habitual physical activity levels of community dwelling stroke survivors. Exploratory, secondary analyses of cross-sectional data were carried out. Physical activity variables [sitting, standing and stepping time, step count, light physical activity and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA)] were measured with two activity monitors for 7 days. Repeated-measures analysis of variance was used to assess reactivity. Minimum ...

The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Rehabilitation Set is proposed as a tool to measure functioning among a clinical population in Chinese rehabilitation services. It needs to be applied in a transparent and reliable way and considered from a measurement perspective. The aim of this study was to develop items operationalizing the ICF Rehabilitation Set to enhance the standardized and unified assessment in varied clinical settings. A list of proposed operational items was generated by (i) linking the items of four standard assessment instruments; (ii) literature review; and (iii) sel...

This study was an observational multicenter study. The Italian version of the OPTIMAL confidence scale (OPTIMAL-I) was developed following forward–backward translation and pretesting with a small group of patients. Reliability was measured by internal consistency (Cronbach α), and a factor analysis was carried out to explore the internal structure. Convergent validity was measured by comparing the OPTIMAL-I with the Italian version of the Activities-specific Balance Confidence (ABC-I). The process for obtaining the OPTIMAL-I required 3 months and it was administered to 290 outpatients in two different rehabilit...

An extensive corpus of literature supports the positive impact of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) on neuroplasticity and the recovery of function. However, its clinical applicability is limited by the time of intervention and individual modality. We propose to assess the efficacy of modified CIMT protocols through a group therapy intervention. To determine the effectiveness of a group therapy, compared with individual modified CIMT, in increasing the use and functionality of movement of a paretic upper limb. The study was a single-blind, randomized parallel trial. Thirty-six patients who had had a stroke more th...

Low alanine aminotransferase (ALT) blood levels are associated with frailty and poor outcome in older adults. Therefore, we studied the association between ALT blood levels before rehabilitation and rehabilitation outcome in older adults following hip fracture surgery. A total of 490 older adults (age>60 years, mean age: 82.9±6.7 years, 82.0% women) admitted to rehabilitation following hip fracture surgery were included. The rehabilitation outcome was assessed by Functional Independence Measure (FIM) scores. ALT blood levels were documented between 1 and 6 months before rehabilitation. Patients with ALT blood lev...

Many reports have investigated rehabilitation outcomes after a traumatic brain injury (TBI); however, comparably less is known about whether they differ from outcomes of an anoxic brain injury (ABI). Thus, we aimed to compare the rehabilitation outcomes of patients with ABI with control patients who have TBI. Forty participants with ABI and 40 participants with TBI were included in this retrospective study. Participants with ABI were matched with participants with TBI who had similar clinical characteristics such as age, initial Functional Independence Measurement (FIM) score, and duration of coma. FIM and Functional Ambul...

Most patients undergoing limb amputations suffer significant emotional changes. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of suicide attempts and depression in a sample of Mexican patients with limb amputations and, second, to determine whether the patients’ functionality correlates with the presence of depression. We studied 40 patients who had undergone a limb amputation. The suicide attempt was evaluated using the Suicide Intent Scale. The depression was assessed using the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, whereas the functionality of the patients was measured using the Functional Independence Measure. ...

This study aimed to identify the effects of rhythmic arm swing during robot-assisted walking training on balance, gait, motor function, and activities of daily living among patients with subacute stroke. Twenty patients with subacute stroke were recruited, and thereafter randomly allocated to either the experimental group that performed the robot-assisted walking training with rhythmic arm swing, or the control group that performed the training in arm fixation. In total, 30 training sessions were carried out. The outcome measures included the 10-m walk test, Berg balance scale, timed up-and-go test, fall index that was mea...
