Clinical Instructors' Experiences Working with and Assessing Students Who Perform below Expectations in Physical Therapy Clinical Internships.

Conclusions: We make several recommendations for the student, CI, and facilities to consider to better support and facilitate the process of working with SPBE in PT clinical education. PMID: 31762549 [PubMed]

Conclusions: To learn observational skills, students, facilitated by an experienced teacher, need to take the lead in their own learning process. This might imply a need for additional training for teachers. A realistic context is a precondition for learning; it might be necessary to increase possibilities for observations in clinical contexts or to invest in training for (simulated) patients as participants in education. Further research is needed to test the applicability of the design principles and a proto-theory for other professionals with a focus on observation and analysis of movements.

This study aimed to investigate the potential effects of early postoperative virtual reality (VR) therapy on pain, range of motion (ROM), muscle strength, functionality, and fear of movement.MethodsForty women with breast cancer who had undergone unilateral mastectomy with axillary lymph node dissection and who were receiving adjuvant therapy were included in the study and randomly assigned to two groups: the Kinect-based rehabilitation group (KBRG) and the standardized physical therapy group (SPTG). The KBRG (n = 20) received VR therapy using Xbox Kinect-based games and the SPTG (n = 20) receiv...

Abstract Background: In 2018, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) published a clinical guideline for adults with neurological conditions, which included recommendations for the Five-Repetition Sit-to-Stand test (5STSt). According to the APTA, a standard-height chair should be used, but there is no recommendation regarding seat depth. In addition, the APTA recommended the use of one trial of the test, based on expert opinion.Objectives: (1) Compare the 5STSt scores of patients post-stroke and healthy-matched controls using two types of chairs (one standardized and one adjusted to the individual's anthr...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine the effectiveness of a set of rules for referral and therapy input in a three-tiered physiotherapy program on activities of daily living (ADL), motor function, and quality of life of stroke survivors. DESIGN: Randomized controlled study. SETTING: Rehabilitation departments of 11 teaching hospitals. SUBJECTS: A total of 285 participants with stroke. OUTCOME MEASURES: Primary outcome was ADL independence measured with the Modified Barthel Index (MBI) at weeks 3, 6, 9, 13, and 17. Secondary outcomes were motor function and quality of life measured with Fugel-Meyer As...

ena-Anton Mechanical horse-riding simulators consist of a device that mimics the movement of a real horse, generating between 50 and 100 three-dimensional physical movements (forward and back, left and right, up and down). The main objective of this study is to analyze the effectiveness of mechanical horse-riding simulators to improve postural balance in subjects with neurological disorders. The search was conducted during January–March 2019 in PubMed, Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro), Cochrane, Web of Science, CINAHL, and Scopus. The methodological quality of the studies was evaluated through the PEDr...

Discussion: Objective milestones of walking 10 feet on POD 0 and 100 feet on POD 1 were associated with improved short-term outcomes. These performance markers may be useful for stratifying which patients are meeting milestones for early discharge. Late arrival to inpatient floor had the strongest associations with inability to perform PT. PMID: 31852404 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Tedla JS, Sangadala DR Abstract This systematic review aims to determine the effectiveness of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) treatment techniques in adhesive capsulitis for decreasing pain and disability and increasing range of motion (ROM) and function. A thorough, computerized search was done using database search engines by two reviewers. After meticulous scrutiny and screening of 410 studies, according to the selection criteria, 10 full-text articles were included in the review and meta-analysis. All 10 studies had undergone a methodological quality assessment by the Physiotherapy Evid...
