Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is comprised of a set of techniques shown to produce significant changes in upper extremity (UE) function following stroke and other disorders. The significant positive results obtained with the UE protocol has led to the development of LE-CIMT, an intervention to improve lower extremity (LE) function. However, some modifications of the UE protocol were needed including: omitting use of a restraint device, development of supervised motor training tasks ...

AbstractA 56-year-old woman with chronic stroke and gait dysfunction was recruited for this study. A Lower-Extremity Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (LE-CIMT) protocol was given consisting of 3.5 hours/day of supervised intervention activities on 10 consecutive weekdays. Motor training was inten

Background. Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CIMT) has controlled evidence of efficacy for improving real-world paretic limb use in non-progressive physically disabling disorders (stroke, cerebral palsy). Objective. This study sought to determine whether this therapy can produce comparable results with a progressive disorder such as multiple sclerosis (MS). We conducted a preliminary phase II randomized controlled trial of CIMT versus a program of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)...

Experts around the world support the integration of health promotion and wellness (HPW) services into traditional health care services. If successfully executed, the addition of HPW services would reduce rates of death and disability and significantly reduce health care costs. While all health care providers should be engaged in providing HPW services, many believe that physical therapists (PTs) and occupational therapists (OTs) are uniquely positioned to provide these services. However, researc...

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of nonprogressive neuro-developmental conditions occurring in early childhood that causes movement disorders and physical disability. Measuring activity levels and gait patterns is an important aspect of CP rehabilitation programs. Traditionally, such programs utilize commercially available laboratory systems, which cannot to be utilized in community living. In this study, a novel, shoe-based, wearable sensor system (pediatric SmartShoe) was tested on 11 healthy ch...

Introduction: High rates of recanalization of Emergent Large Vessel Occlusion (ELVO) provide an opportunity to examine retrieved thrombi. We studied device and endothelial (ET) interactions to evaluate ET injury and the relationship between thrombi and Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS) mechanism. Methods: Prospective registry examining immunohistochemical characteristics of retrieved thrombi in ELVO patients. Thrombi were categorized histopathologically and ET injury quantified by CD34 staining and im...
