Objective: To investigate the potential of an acute bout of transcranial electrical stimulation to induce anabolic signalling.
Design: Experimental intervention on healthy subjects.
Subjects: Ten healthy subjects, 5 women and 5 men (mean age (standard deviation (SD) 32 years (SD 4)).
Methods: The quadriceps muscle was stimulated at a frequency of 10 Hz for 10 s, followed by 20 s of rest, repea ...
Objective: To describe the orthotic properties and evaluate the effects of ankle-foot orthoses for calf muscle weakness in persons with non-spastic neuromuscular disorders compared with shoes-only.
Design: Cross-sectional study.
Subjects: Thirty-four persons who used ankle-foot orthoses for non-spastic calf muscle weakness.
Methods: The following orthotic properties were measured: ankle-foot o ...
Objective: Muscle atrophy is frequent in critically ill patients and is associated with increased mortality and long-lasting alteration in quality of life. Muscle ultrasound has not been clearly validated in intensive care unit patients. The aim of this study was to compare the level of agreement between ultrasound and computed tomography scan for the measurement of quadriceps muscle thickness.
Objective: To investigate costs and quality-adjusted life years of rehabilitation combined with abobotulinumtoxinA (aboBoNT-A; Dysport®) (rehab/aboBoNT-A) vs rehabilitation alone (rehab) in post-stroke spasticity in Italy.
Design: Based on both Italian National Health Service and societal perspectives, a 2-year cost-utility analysis model was performed.
Subject/patients: The cost-utility analys ...
Objective: Acute geriatric care (geriatric early rehabilitative treatment) and sub-acute (inpatient) geriatric rehabilitation are delivered to geriatric patients in Germany after hip fracture. The aim of this study was to compare patients’ outcomes after hip fracture between 3 German federal states (Hesse, Bavaria, and Baden-Wuerttemberg) that nearly exclusively offered 1 of the 2 geriatric care ...
Objective: To investigate whether a range of previously identified biopsychosocial risk factors were associated with poorer health-related quality of life after transport-related injuries.
Methods: This study involved 1,574 participants who sustained a transport-related injury, claimed compensation through the Victorian compensation scheme (in the Australian state of Victoria), and contributed to ...
