Effects of Whole Body Vibration Therapy on Body Functions and Structures, Activity, and Participation Poststroke: A Systematic Review.
ConclusionsClinical use of WBV in enhancing body functions/ structures, activity and participation after stroke is not supported. PMID: 24786940 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The entire field of acute stroke care has been revolutionized in the last 60 years. Big data management, telemedicine, software, new brain and vascular imaging techniques, biomarkers, robotics etc., are currently in development and again should lead to new and surprising changes during the next decades.

CONCLUSIONS: An objective method of quantifying spasticity can assist in determining if functional gains made post stroke are due to compensations in movement, or due to physiological changes. Ultrasound imaging may be used as an alternative to the Modified Ashworth score to quantify muscular parameters in spastic muscles post stroke. PMID: 31498134 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Functional gait, balance, and cognitive performance are associated with PSF. Fatigue should be considered when planning and delivering interventions for individuals with stroke. Future studies are needed to explore the potential efficacy of balance and cognitive training in PSF management.Video Abstract available for more insights from the authors (see Video, Supplemental Digital Content 1, available at: http://links.lww.com/JNPT/A287).

CONCLUSIONS: High levels of belief, confidence, and motivation appear consistent over the first 6 months after stroke. The lack of correlations between psychosocial factors and clinical measures suggests belief, confidence, and motivation may not be vulnerable to functional status early after stroke.Video Abstract available for more insights from the authors (see the Video, Supplemental Digital Content 1 available at: http://links.lww.com/JNPT/A283).

Conclusions: Results from this study revealed complexity in the clinical reasoning process used in physical therapy practice to determine the best walking assistive device for patients with stroke and brain injury during inpatient rehabilitation. Information from this study can inform post-acute physical therapy practice and education, and may reduce device abandonment. Implications for rehabilitation Clinical reasoning (CR) is a complex process in which a clinician must consider multiple factors, which requires non-linear and iterative thinking, and involves many people, making it shared among the patient, caregivers, and...
