CONCLUSION: SATIS-Stroke addresses more issues regarding the domains of Learning and Applying Knowledge, Mobility, Self-Care, Domestic Life, and Major Life Areas, whereas the PM-Scale addresses more issues regarding the General Tasks and Demands, Communication, and Community, Social and Civic Life. Both instruments equally address issues related to Interpersonal Interactions and Relationships.PMID:34605744 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1983908

This article uses an existing American survey to compare Saudi physiotherapists' current practice and preferred interventions in stroke rehabilitation with their counterparts in other countries. Method: An electronic survey was sent between September and October 2020 to physiotherapists (n = 287) treating persons with stroke in Saudi Arabia. The questionnaire consisted of items related to stroke rehabilitation, including treatment approach, the goal of interventions, management of tone, facilitation of movement, function, and improved motor control. Chi-square tests (χ2) were used to test any associations betwee...

Physiother Theory Pract. 2021 Sep 9:1-12. doi: 10.1080/09593985.2021.1978120. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThis pilot study examined a novel technology-enhanced real-time action observation therapy (TERTAOT) of symmetrical bilateral movements in survivors of chronic stroke regardless of their ability to move their paretic limb(s). The TERTAOT used a Kinect XBox One to project mirror images of non-paretic limbs as participants performed symmetrical bilateral motor tasks involving whole-body movements in sitting or standing. The participants received eight weeks of treatment consisting of 30-minutes of conventional physical...

CONCLUSION: Dynamic supported standing training using a modified standing frame may improve pusher behavior with short-term training. The collapsed posture of the patient in the present case was corrected using the modified standing frame. This neutral standing position could have a positive effect on motor learning with respect to holding one's posture.PMID:34498984 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1978119

CONCLUSION: Sensory assessment protocol use has increased over time while sensory-specific training has remained stable. Sensory rehabilitation in the context of everyday activities is a common treatment approach. Clinical trial registration number: ACTRN12615000933550IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONOnly a small proportion of upper limb assessments conducted with stroke patients focus specifically on sensation; increased use of standardised upper limb assessments for sensory loss is needed.Stroke patients assessed as having upper limb sensory loss frequently do not receive treatment for their deficits.Therapists typically u...

CONCLUSIONS: : Commonly used rehabilitation exercises can be adapted to promote an external focus of attention, by altering the therapist's use of instructions and/or altering the task set up. Treatment principles and examples of tasks that promote an external focus have been produced.PMID:34474651 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1972501
