Background People with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) often present with prevalent gait impairment and high fall rates, particularly in advanced CKD stages. Gait impairment and its consequences is associated with increased hospital admission, institutionalization, and greater need for health care. The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate the quality of studies investigating CKD patients’ gait characteristics at different CKD stages, to highlight areas of agreement and contradiction ...

Background Older adults often suffer from age- and behavior-related brain changes affecting neuronal functioning and, therefore, cognitive and motor functions. The improvement of these functions might decrease falls and improve mobility. Previous studies indicate that video game-based physical exercise, so-called exergames, or omega-3 fatty acids (FAs) improve motor and cognitive functioning through brain adaptations. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of exergame training combined ...

Objective This study aimed to explore the relationship between dependence in Activities of Daily Living and muscle strength, muscle morphology and physical function in older nursing home residents, taking possible confounders into consideration. Methods A total of 30 nursing home residents (age, 85.6±7.1 years) were included in this observational cross-sectional study. Performance of basic Activities of Daily Living (ADL) was assessed with the Resident Assessment Instrument and categorized as ei...

Gait training might be of particular importance to reduce fall risk in older adults. In the present study we explore the hypothesis that video game-based training will increase tibialis anterior muscle EMG-EMG coherence and relates to functional measures of lower limb control. We focus on video game-based training, which necessitates the subject’s ability to lift the toes and to place the feet on different target zones as a requirement to successfully play the game. We hypothesize that this type...

Purpose: To investigate the feasibility of an exergame-driven High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and its effects on cardiovascular fitness in untrained community dwelling older adults. Methods: Twelve older participants (ten women, age 72.3 (SD 4.44) years) performed a high-intensity interval exergame intervention three times a week for four weeks. Data was acquired during two baseline and one final measurement. Feasibility outcomes included attrition, adherence, acceptability (Technology A...

The Myositis Activity Profile (MAP) is the only disease-specific questionnaire to assess limitations in activities of daily living (ADL) in patients with inflammatory myopathy (IM). Because a German version does not currently exist, this study’s aim was to translate the MAP and assess reliability and construct validity of the new version. Therefore, a cross-cultural adaptation was performed following international guidelines. Forty-eight patients with IM completed the German-MAP, twice within tw...
