Abstract Background Individuals with stroke often experience difficulty in dual-task walking and are prone to falling when walking and talking. Previous studies in other populations have suggested that non-invasive brain stimulation could enhance dual-task gait performance by stimulating dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) or supplementary motor area (SMA). It was unclear if the benefits of brain stimulation would be observed in individuals with stroke. Research Question Would single-session ...

Abstract Background Rising from a chair is an important functional measure after stroke. Originally developed as a measure of lower-limb strength, the five times sit-to-stand test has shown associations with other measures of impairment, such as balance ability. We aimed to compare strength and balance in their relationship with the five times sit-to-stand test following stroke. Methods Sixty-one participants following stroke were recruited from two hospitals in this cross-sectional observationa...

Abstract Background Flatfoot is characterized as a lower longitudinal arch and is a common foot deformity in older adults. Foot intrinsic muscle dysfunction has been considered as one of the factors for a lower medial longitudinal arch. The objective of this study was to investigate the association of the navicular drop with the thickness of foot intrinsic muscles in older adults. Research question: Which intrinsic muscle contributes most to support the medial longitudinal arch in older adults? ...

Abstract Background The purpose of this study was to investigate the normal development of postural control in children aged 2-18 years in Tehran, and to provide normative data of computerized dynamic posturography (CDP) device variables. Methods The study population included 400 boys and 400 girls aged 2-18 years (eight age groups with 2-year interval) and 100 adults aged 22-25 years. In each age group, 100 people were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. To evaluate the post...

Abstract Background Contralateral strength training (CST) is increasingly investigated and employed as a non-conventional way to induce an indirect gain in strength in the weakened untrained limb. However, its effects on gait performance are more controversial. Research question To assess and compare the effects of contralateral (CST) and direct (DST) strength training on spatio-temporal parameters, kinematic and kinetic descriptors of gait in persons with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis ...

Abstract Background Single-task (ST) and dual-task (DT) assessments are commonly used to evaluate motor and cognitive impairment in people with multiple sclerosis (MS). Although variability can influence repeated DT testing measures, the reliability of several DT variables over time has not been adequately explored. For instance, a third testing session has never been included to observe whether DT has a learning effect. DT cognition rate reliability has not yet been examined and dual-task cost ...

Abstract Background Single-leg balance (SLB) impairment from eyes-open to eyes-closed trials is significantly greater in patients with chronic ankle instability than in uninjured controls, indicating higher reliance on visual information. It is of clinical interest to see if the visual adaptation occurs immediately after injury. Research question: We aimed to investigate visual reliance in patients with acute lateral ankle sprain (ALAS) during SLB with both injured and uninjured limbs and during...

Abstract Background Hip osteoarthritis is a major musculoskeletal disorder in the elderly. Evidence is given for the efficacy of exercise interventions in terms of self-reported physical functioning and pain. However, it has not yet been fully examined whether exercises influence gait. Research question The purpose of this RCT therefore was to evaluate effects of a 12-week exercise program on kinematic gait variables in subjects with hip osteoarthritis. Methods 210 participants were randomly ass...

Abstract Background Bone shapes strongly influence force and moment predictions of kinematic and musculoskeletal models used in motion analysis. The precise determination of joint reference frames is essential for accurate predictions. Since clinical motion analysis typically does not include medical imaging, from which bone shapes may be obtained, scaling methods using reference subjects to create subject-specific bone geometries are widely used. Research question This study investigated if low...
