Inertial measurement unit compared to an optical motion capturing system in post-stroke individuals with foot-drop syndrome.

Ann Phys Rehabil Med 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Nîmes University Hospital, Le Grau du Roi, France.

Background: Functional electrical stimulation (FES) can be used for compensation of foot-drop for post-stroke individuals by preprogrammed fixed stimulation; however, this stimulation seems no more effective than mechanical ankle foot orthoses.

Objective: We evaluated the metrological quality of inertial sensors for movement reconstruction as compared with the gold-standard motion capturing system, to couple FES with inertial sensors to improve dorsiflexion on the paretic side, by using an adaptive stimulation taking into account individuals' performance post-stroke.

Methods: Adults with ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke presenting foot-drop and able to walk 10 m, were included from May 2016 to June 2017. Read More

Design and Workspace Analysis of a Parallel Ankle Rehabilitation Robot (PARR).

J Healthc Eng 2019 14;2019:4164790. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

College of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Electronics Technology, Beijing University of Technology, Beijing, China.

The ankle rehabilitation robot is essential equipment for patients with foot drop and talipes valgus to make up deficiencies of the manual rehabilitation training and reduce the workload of rehabilitation physicians. A parallel ankle rehabilitation robot (PARR) was developed which had three rotational degrees of freedom around a virtual stationary center for the ankle joint. The center of the ankle should be coincided with the virtual stationary center during the rehabilitation process. Read More

Effect of patellofemoral pain on foot posture and walking kinematics.

Gait Posture 2019 May 18;70:361-369. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Centre of Human & Aerospace Physiological Sciences, Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine, King's College London, London, UK.

Background Excessive pronation has been implicated in patellofemoral pain (PFP) aetiology and foot orthoses are commonly prescribed for PFP patients. Pronation can be assessed using foot posture tests, however, the utility of such tests depends on their association with foot and lower-limb kinematics. Research questions Do PFP participants compared with healthy participants (1) have a more pronated foot measured with static foot tests and a kinematic multi-segmental foot model and (2) is there an association between static foot posture and foot and lower limb kinematics during walking? Methods A case-control study including 22 participants (n = 11 PFP, 5 females per group, aged 24 ± 3 (mean ± SD) years) was conducted. Read More

Department of Neurology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA 02115, USA.

Entrapment neuropathies in the lower limbs are a common neurologic problem and may present in any medical setting. Accurate identification and management of these nerve palsies can prevent pain, sensory loss, incoordination, and muscle weakness that may significantly affect a patient's functional mobility. In this article, the authors focus on the cause, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of select entrapment neuropathies of the lower extremity, including palsies of the common peroneal, lateral femoral cutaneous, femoral, and posterior tibial nerves.

Background And Purpose: Dynamic susceptibility contrast MR perfusion imaging has limited results in children due to difficulties in reproducing technical standards derived from adults. This prospective, multicenter study aimed to determine DSC feasibility and quality in children using custom administration of a standard dose of gadolinium.

Materials And Methods: Eighty-three consecutive children with brain tumors underwent DSC perfusion with a standard dose of gadobutrol administered by an automated power injector. Read More

Operant conditioning of the motor-evoked potential and locomotion in people with and without chronic incomplete spinal cord injury.

J Neurophysiol 2019 Mar 9;121(3):853-866. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Physical Therapy, School of Health Technology and Management, Stony Brook University , Stony Brook, New York.

Foot drop is very common among people with chronic incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI) and likely stems from SCI that disturbs the corticospinal activation of the ankle dorsiflexor tibialis anterior (TA). Thus, if one can recover or increase the corticospinal excitability reduced by SCI, motor function recovery may be facilitated. Here, we hypothesized that in people suffering from weak dorsiflexion due to chronic incomplete SCI, increasing the TA motor-evoked potential (MEP) through operant up-conditioning can improve dorsiflexion during locomotion, while in people without any injuries, it would have little impact on already normal locomotion.

The trouble with footwear following stroke: a qualitative study of the views and experience of people with stroke.

Disabil Rehabil 2019 Jan 8:1-8. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

a School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Environmental and Life Sciences , University of Southampton , Highfield , Southampton , UK.

Purpose: Foot problems and suboptimal footwear are risk factors for falls among the elderly. Footwear choice may, therefore, be important for people with balance impairment following stroke, but little is known about their experience. This study explored foot problems experienced following stroke, factors influencing footwear choices and views of footwear in use. Read More

A novel hinged ankle foot orthosis for gait performance in chronic hemiplegic stroke survivors: a feasibility study.

Biomed Eng Lett 2018 Aug 29;8(3):301-308. Epub 2018 May 29.

4Department of Physical Therapy, Kyungnam University, 7 Kyungnamdaehak-ro, Masanhappo-gu, Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do 51767 Republic of Korea.

Stroke survivors with gait disturbances may use ankle foot orthoses (AFOs). However, most AFOs come in one-piece styles, which make it difficult for spasticity-affected stroke survivors to don. AFOs are also limited since they do not properly prevent ankle joint for foot drop by itself. Read More

Gait analysis is relevant to a broad range of clinical applications in areas of orthopedics, neurosurgery, rehabilitation and the sports medicine. There are various methods available for capturing and analyzing the gait cycle. Most of gait analysis methods are computationally expensive and difficult to implement outside the laboratory environment. Read More

Tibialis posterior transfer for foot drop due to central causes: Long-term hindfoot alignment.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2019 Feb 24;105(1):153-158. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Background: Tibialis posterior transfer (TPT) is the treatment most widely used to palliate foot drop due to dorsiflexor palsy. TPT has been extensively studied in patients with peripheral neurological causes of foot drop. In contrast, data are scarce on central foot drop, in which TPT is often blamed for causing flattening of the arches. Read More

The anatomic location and importance of the tibialis posterior fascicular bundle at the sciatic nerve bifurcation: report of 3 cases.

J Neurosurg 2018 Dec 21:1-7. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Departments of2Neurosurgery and.

The authors present the cases of 3 patients with severe injuries affecting the peroneal nerve combined with loss of tibialis posterior function (inversion) despite preservation of other tibial nerve function. Loss of tibialis posterior function is problematic, since transfer of the tibialis posterior tendon is arguably the best reconstructive option for foot drop, when available. Analysis of preoperative imaging studies correlated with operative findings and showed that the injuries, while predominantly to the common peroneal nerve, also affected the lateral portion of the tibial nerve/division near the sciatic nerve bifurcation.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Nov 28;11(1). Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Physiotherapy Outpatient Department, University Hospitals of Derby & Burton NHS Foundation Trust, Derby, UK.

Leg pain and weakness can often be seen in a musculoskeletal physiotherapy outpatient setting. While the differential diagnoses for neuropathic pain and weakness is often spine related, this unusual cause for polyradiculopathy is less commonly seen. Shingles is not something routinely seen in a physiotherapy department but is usually associated with skin eruptions and pain but less so with motor loss. Read More
