Meta-analysis of clinical trials in rehabilitation is often inconclusive, even when similar interventions are investigated. A possible reason for this is the influence of the settings in which rehabilitation services are delivered. Examples show that factors
related to service organization in rehabilitation can influence study outcomes. This, in particular, is relevant, as contextual factors in ...
To investigate the pooled prevalence of cerebral palsy in China, analyse the differences between different subgroups, and explore the trend over the 32-year period from 1988 to 2020.
All potential studies related to the prevalence of cerebral palsy among children and adoles-cents in China were identified from 3 English-
language databases and 4 Chinese-language databases. Pooled prevalence wa ...

Design: Cross-sectional study.
Patients: Twenty-six individuals with stroke (mean age 55.4 years, severe to mild motor impairment).
Methods: Data on daytime activity were collected over a period of 4 days from ...
Objective: To examine the temporal evolution of subjective cognitive complaints in the long-term after stroke, and to identify predictors of long-term subjective cognitive complaints.
Methods: Prospective cohort study including 395 stroke patients. Subjective cognitive complaints were assessed at 2 months, 6 months and 4 years post-stroke, using the Checklist for Cognitive and Emotional consequen ...

Objective: Recent clinical evidence supports that orthopaedic insoles, especially lateral-wedge insoles, can significantly benefit patients with knee osteoarthritis. The aim of this study is to explore the effects of orthopaedic insoles in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
Methods: Randomized controlled trials evaluating the effects of orthopaedic insoles on patients with knee osteoarthritis, pu ...
Objective: To assess the effects of dextrose prolotherapy in patients with knee osteoarthritis on the levels of serum cartilage oligomeric proteinase and urinary C-terminal telopeptide of type II collagen, and on the Western Ontario McMaster Universities Index and numerical rating scale score for pain.
Methods: A randomized controlled trial, in which participants were randomly allocated into 2 gr ...
The number of patients surviving severe brain injury is increasing; however, many are left in a prolonged disorder of consciousness. With appropriate treatment, patients with prolonged disorders of consciousness can survive for years. Unless an advance directive exists, the treating clinicians can authorize withdrawal of clinically assisted nutrition and hydration for these patients, based on best ...
Gait impairments in people with Charcot Marie Tooths disease are the combined result of ankle-foot deformities, muscle weakness, and somatosensory impairments. People with hereditary neuropathies often experience pain and difficulties when walking, especially barefoot. They also trip and fall frequently and have a lower than normal gait speed and distance. Because these gait impairments and relate ...
Objective: To estimate societal costs and changes in health-related quality of life in stroke patients, up to one year after start of medical specialist rehabilitation.
Patients: Consecutive patients who received medical specialist rehabilitation in the Stroke Cohort Outcomes of REhabilitation (SCORE) study.
Methods: Participants completed questionnaires on health-relate ...

Objectives: To set up a comprehensive health programme for employees, with needs-based allocation to preventive and rehabilitative measures; and to evaluate the effects of the programme on work ability and sick leave.
Design: Prospective single-group observational study.
Methods: Employees of a university hospital were invited to participate in needs-based interventions of preventive or rehabili ...
Background: Instrumental assessment of gait pattern in hemiparetic post-stroke patients can be difficult. The Gait Profile Score, together with Gait Variable Scores, was recently validated as a quality measure for gait analysis in children with cerebral palsy. However, use of the Gait Profile Score has not been compared with that of clinical scales in post-stroke patients.
Objective: The aims of ...
Background: Graded resistance training is the recommended treatment for patients with subacromial pain syndrome. It is debated whether adding joint mobilization will improve the outcome. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of guided exercises with or without joint mobilization, compared with controls who did not receive any treatment.
Methods: A 3-armed controlled trial in ...
