Design: Prospective cohort study.
Participants: A total of 208 participants admitted to inpatient rehabilitation in a m ...
The paper presents a summary of the Olle Höök lecture, which was presented at the Baltic North-Sea Forum in Oslo, Sweden, in October 2019. The paper aims to provide a worldwide picture of stroke, developments in this field, and the evolution of stroke rehabilitation.

Objective: To make a bibliometric analysis of global trends in research into exercise interventions for low back pain between 1980 and 2018.
Methods: Systematic literature, published from 1980 to 2018, was obtained from the Web of Science Core Collection database. CiteSpace software was used to analyse the relationship between publications and country, institution, journals, authors, references, ...
Objective: Recovery of the paretic arm post-stroke can be assessed using observational and self-reported measures. The aim of this study was to determine whether the correspondence (match) or non-correspondence (mismatch) between observational and self-reported improvements in upper limb capacity are significantly different at 0–3 months compared with 3–6 months post-stroke.
Methods: A total ...

Although we are currently overwhelmed by the astonishing speed of infection of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the daily onslaught of new, and ever-worsening predictions, it is vital that we begin to prepare for the aftershocks of the pandemic. Prominent among this will be the cohort of post-intensive case survivors who have been mechanically ventilated and will like experience short- and medium-term c ...
Objective: Impairment of physical function is the main determinant of morbidity/mortality in sarcopenia and frailty. Physical function tests are performed by the movement around the joints, and skeletal muscles are the main generators of the forces required to perform these functional tasks. However, the central nervous system, which initiates and coordinates muscle movements, controls the magnitu ...
Objective: A prospective, observational study to describe levels of physical activity in patients with stroke on day 2 and day 5 or 6 after admission to a comprehensive stroke unit in Sweden.
Methods: The study was performed at the stroke unit at Sahlgrenska University Hospital during a period of 4 months between 2017 and 2018. Consecutive patients with stroke were observed for 1 min every 10 mi ...
Objectives: To investigate if an intensive rehabilitation programme, including intensive exercise and patient education, for young adults with inflammatory arthritis, conducted in a warm climate, has long-term effects on general health status compared with usual care.
Design: Open randomized controlled trial.
Patients: A total of 64 patients with inflammatory arthritis, aged 20–35 years.
