The warning time (time from first sensation of urgency to voiding or incontinence) only partially reflects the possibility of continence. Other factors such as mobility, difficulties in transfer or undressing can influence this time.Objectives: The aim was to create a specific test for P...

Determinants of satisfaction with motor rehabilitation in people with cerebral palsy: A national survey in France (ESPaCe)
This study was part of ESPaCe, a national survey aimed at documenting the views of individuals with cerebral palsy and their families regarding MR services via a questionnaire, developed by a multidisciplinary group. The ESPaCe questionnaire included the Client Satisfaction Questionnaire (CSQ-8), whose total score was the primary outcome of this study. Survey participation was promoted nation-wide. The questionnaire could be completed by the person with cerebral palsy or their main carer. Analysis included the description of determinants across CSQ-8 quartiles and generalised linear modelling of the CSQ-8 score.ResultsFrom...

Construct validity of the Trunk Aesthetic Clinical Evaluation (TRACE) in young people with idiopathic scoliosis
Conclusions. The TRACE ordinal scale has been converted into a Rasch-consistent, interval-level measure of trunk aesthetics in IS patients and can be used to compare different populations. Its main flaw is low reliability, likely because of the small number of items. TRACE can be used as an outcome measure and in everyday clinical evaluation of IS, even if new developments of the scale are advised. (Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine)

The importance of lower-extremity muscle strength for lower-limb functional capacity in multiple sclerosis: systematic review
Conclusions: In PwMS, muscle strength of particularly the weakest limb explains 20% to 30% of the variance across a number of lower-limb functional capacity tests. Thus, exercise programs should focus on increasing lower-extremity muscle mechanical function in PwMS and minimizing strength asymmetry between limbs.

Additional validation study and French cross-cultural adaptation of the Pediatric Stroke Outcome Measure–Summary of Impressions (PSOM-SOI)
Conclusion: The IRR of the French PSOM-SOI gave variable results depending on the item and rater’s experience, but the extent of disagreements was minor for individual items and total score. Additional prospective validation studies using the French PSOM-Short Neurological Exam to score the PSOM-SOI are needed. A dichotomized total score (cutoff ≤ 0.5) could be used to define normal function versus poor outcome. (Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine)

Conclusions and implications. Follow-up of polio survivors should include systematic screening for sleep disorders because they are associated with adverse consequences. Sleep disorder evaluation and management should improve the long-term survival and quality of life of polio survivors. Methodologically robust clinical trials are needed, but the decreasing prevalence and large clinical spectrum of the disease may complicate the creation of comparable groups.

Characteristics of newly acquired gait in toddlers with unilateral cerebral palsy: implications for early rehabilitation
Conclusions. Alterations in kinematic gait parameters were mostly found at the pelvis in toddlers with UCP and newly acquired gait. At that age, the external pelvic rotation on the affected side is more likely due to primary motor control disorders than compensatory mechanisms. These findings suggest that early rehabilitation should focus on proximal motor control, balance and symmetry to optimize gait development from the early stages in children with UCP.

Pelvic floor muscle activity patterns in women with and without stress urinary incontinence while running
Conclusion: Morse wavelets could be used to extract differences between pre- and post-initial contact activation behavior of PFMs during different running speeds as well as spectral changes toward high or low frequencies. This information sheds light on specific differences in involuntary reflexive activation patterns while running. Muscular preparation and adaptation a few milliseconds before initial contact could be helpful. (Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine)
