Feasibility and clinical impact of a portable bi-level ventilation device in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and exertional dyspnea: preliminary results from a clinical series
CONCLUSION: Home use of portable bi-level positive-pressure ventilation devices by patients with COPD may alleviate disease-related anxiety and depression, particularly in more severe cases of COPD. Future portable device design should feature adjustable inspiratory/expiratory pressures.PMID:34156334 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1938309 (Source: Physiotherapy Theory and Practice)

The clinical correlates of the chair sit to stand performance in people with multiple sclerosis
This study aimed to evaluate the motor and non-motor factors associated with sit-to-stand performance in people with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS). Design: Observational cross-sectional study. Subjects: A total of 88 individuals with MS participated in this study. Main Measures: Standing performance was measured using the five-times-sit-to-stand test (FTSTS). The Berg Balance Scale to assess balance, the 10-Meter Walking Test (10-MWT) was used to assess walking speed; the Patient Determined Disease Steps (PDDS) was used to assess disability level. Furthermore, Brief International Cognitive Assessment for MS (BICAMS) was used t...

Diaphragm thickness, thickness change, and excursion in subjects with and without nonspecific low back pain using B-mode and M-mode ultrasonography
Conclusion: We found that participants with LBP had a smaller degree of right hemidiaphragm thickness change. Also, the right hemidiaphragm thickness change might significantly predict LBP.PMID:34061721 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1926022 (Source: Physiotherapy Theory and Practice)
