CONCLUSIONS: Preliminary results suggest CAMP is feasible; there may be a beneficial effect of combining best evidence for mobility and fitness with cognitive strategy training. The positive results for skill maintenance and transfer suggest further investigation is warranted. PMID: 32748666 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study investigated the predictors of gait efficiency when walking with and without an arm sling in individuals with hemiplegia with shoulder subluxation. METHODS: A total of 57 individuals with shoulder subluxation were recruited. Individuals assigned odd numbers walked with the arm sling first and those with even numbers walked without the arm sling first in a pre-post design. Outcome measures were the energy cost, energy consumption, and heart rate during a 6-min walk test and a 10-m walk test. Gait efficiency is defined as energy consumption divided by the distance walked, with lower energy costs reflecting hi...
CONCLUSIONS: Physiotherapists describe a variety of practices with careful implementation of any early mobilization after thrombolysis. Common factors of risk assessment reported by participants could contribute to guideline development. PMID: 32735467 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsVenous thromboembolism risk in rheumatoid arthritis is stated as being less recognized as an arterial complication. This is borne out by this patient ’s clinical journey, wherein his youth, fitness, athletic appearance, and onset of symptoms during exercise were said to suggest a diagnosis of a calf strain at a minor injuries unit. Ultrasonography at a different accident and emergency unit later that day ultimately was used to diagnose deep vei n thrombosis.
