Shoulder orthoses for the prevention and reduction of hemiplegic shoulder pain and subluxation: Systematic review.
CONCLUSION: Observational studies suggest that orthoses reduce vertical subluxation whilst in-situ. Available evidence from heterogeneous studies after stroke suggests that orthoses may reduce pain and are well-tolerated with prolonged use. No studies have tested whether subluxation and pain can be prevented by immediate post-stroke application of orthoses. PMID: 27184582 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Improving practice with integration of patient directed activity during inpatient rehabilitation.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Early initiation of rehabilitation following stroke promotes better long-term outcomes than delayed onset, emphasizing the importance of inpatient therapy. However, literature indicates that following stroke individuals in inpatient rehabilitation spend the majority of their day in their bedroom and inactive. Consequently, since amount of functional activity is posited to relate to outcomes, the current rehabilitation model needs to be challenged with innovative solutions to maximize recovery. RATIONALE: In an attempt to promote greater activity and higher doses of therapy during inpatient ...

Effects of whole body vibration on muscle spasticity for people with central nervous system disorders: A systematic review.
CONCLUSION: Whole-body vibration may be useful in reducing leg muscle spasticity in cerebral palsy but this needs to be verified by future high quality trials. There is insufficient evidence to support or refute the notion that whole-body vibration can reduce spasticity in stroke, spinocerebellar ataxia or multiple sclerosis.

A comparison between the Static Balance Test and the Berg Balance Scale: Validity, reliability, and comparative resource use.
CONCLUSION: The Static Balance Test was compared with the Berg Balance Scale and turned out to be equally valid, more reliable, and takes much less time. For the moment, the scale can be recommended for the use in acute stroke care, especially for the daily routine therapy. PMID: 25802425 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Utilization of motor imagery in upper limb rehabilitation: A systematic scoping review.
CONCLUSION: Many of the imagery elements reviewed are not being considered or reported on in the selected studies. How motor imagery is being delivered within and between populations is inconsistent, which may lead to difficulties in determining key elements of effectiveness.

Emotional vitality in caregivers: application of Rasch Measurement Theory with secondary data to development and test a new measure.
CONCLUSION: Established methods from the Rasch Measurement Theory were applied to develop a prototype measure of emotional vitality that is acceptable, reliable, and can be used to obtain an interval level score for use in future research and clinical settings.
