Tai Chi for cancer survivors: A systematic review toward consensus-based guidelines.

Cancer Med 2021 Sep 17. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Penn State Cancer Institute, Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.

To manage acute, long-term, and late effects of cancer, current guidelines recommend moderate-to-vigorous intensity aerobic and resistance exercise. Unfortunately, not all cancer survivors are able or willing to perform higher intensity exercise during difficult cancer treatments or because of other existing health conditions. Tai Chi is an equipment-free, multicomponent mind-body exercise performed at light-to-moderate intensity that may provide a more feasible alternative to traditional exercise programs for some cancer survivors.

Integrating a Prevention Care Path into the Daily Life of Older Adults with Mobility Disability Risk: Introducing a Predictive Response Model to Exercise.

Clin Interv Aging 2021 10;16:1617-1629. Epub 2021 Sep 10.

Hospices Civils de Lyon, Centre Hospitalier Lyon Sud, Service de médecine du vieillissement, Pierre-Bénite, cedex F-69495, France.

Introduction: Exercise and nutrition are the best targets to tackle mobility issues in community-dwelling older adults. As exercise response relies on multiple factors, improving the understanding of their interactions is a necessity to tailor effective preventive strategies. Based on a prevention care path designed for community-dwelling older adults with mobility disability risk, our main goal was to determine the predictive factors of the response to a multimodal intervention, combining structured exercise training and nutritional counselling.

Effects of exercise training on heart rate variability in children and adolescents with pulmonary arterial hypertension: a pilot study.

Cardiovasc Diagn Ther 2021 Aug;11(4):1028-1036

Division of Pediatric Cardiology, University Childrens Hospital Ulm, Ulm, Germany.

Background: Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is often associated with cardiac autonomic dysfunction, and heart rate variability (HRV) as marker of cardiac autonomic function is even related to disease severity. Knowledge about the effects of physical activity on HRV is limited in these patients. We aimed to assess whether HRV parameters can be influenced by a supervised exercise training program and whether respective changes are related to levels of activity. Read More

Support Care Cancer 2021 Sep 14. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Rural Clinical School, University of New South Wales, Albury Campus, Albury, NSW, 2640, Australia.

Purpose: To understand how frequently exercise is discussed and/or prescribed as a supportive care measure and the barriers and facilitators to exercise uptake for men with prostate cancer receiving androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) at a regional cancer centre.

Methods: An observational, cross-sectional study was conducted at a regional cancer centre in three stages: (1) Retrospective chart review of men with prostate cancer undergoing ADT to identify the frequency of discussion and/or prescription of supportive care measures; (2) prospective patient survey exploring barriers and facilitators to exercise; and (3) prospective clinician survey exploring barriers, facilitators and awareness of exercise guidelines in men with prostate cancer.

Results: Files of 100 men receiving ADT (mean age 73 years; mean ADT duration =12 months) in the medical oncology (n = 50) and radiation oncology (n = 50) clinics were reviewed. Read More

Lower extremity MRI following 10-week supervised exercise intervention in patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

BMJ Open Diabetes Res Care 2021 Sep;9(1)

Department of Physical Therapy, New York University, New York City, New York, USA.

Introduction: The purpose of this study was to characterize using MRI the effects of a 10-week supervised exercise program on lower extremity skeletal muscle composition, nerve microarchitecture, and metabolic function in individuals with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN).

Research Design And Methods: Twenty participants with DPN completed a longitudinal trial consisting of a 30-day control period, during which subjects made no change to their lifestyle, followed by a 10-week intervention program that included three supervised aerobic and resistance exercise sessions per week targeting the upper and lower extremities. The participants' midcalves were scanned with multinuclear MRI two times prior to intervention (baseline and baseline) and once following intervention to measure relaxation times (T1, T1ρ, and T2), phosphocreatine recovery, fat fraction, and diffusion parameters.

Computer Game-Based Telerehabilitation Platform Targeting Manual Dexterity: Exercise Is Fun. "You Are Kidding-Right?"

Sensors (Basel) 2021 Aug 27;21(17). Epub 2021 Aug 27.

College of Rehabilitation Science, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB R3T 5V6, Canada.

There is a need for innovation to improve the engagement and accessibility of rehabilitation programs for children and adults with upper extremity motor impairments due to neurodevelopmental disorders, acquired brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries. For this purpose, a computer game-based telerehabilitation platform (GTP) was developed to address this need. Through the application of a miniature inertial-based computer mouse and the wide variety of commercial computer games, the developed GTP can provide engaging task-specific exercises for the rehabilitation of manual dexterity (object handling and manipulation).

Gait Phase Estimation by Using LSTM in IMU-Based Gait Analysis-Proof of Concept.

Sensors (Basel) 2021 Aug 26;21(17). Epub 2021 Aug 26.

Health and Physical Activity, Department of Sport Science, Institute III, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Zschokkestraße 32, 39104 Magdeburg, Germany.

Gait phase detection in IMU-based gait analysis has some limitations due to walking style variations and physical impairments of individuals. Therefore, available algorithms may not work properly when the gait data is noisy, or the person rarely reaches a steady state of walking. The aim of this work was to employ Artificial Intelligence (AI), specifically a long short-term memory (LSTM) algorithm, to overcome these weaknesses. Read More

Is It Really Home-Based? A Commentary on the Necessity for Accurate Definitions across Exercise and Physical Activity Programmes.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 09 1;18(17). Epub 2021 Sep 1.

Institute of Health and Wellbeing, Coventry University, Coventry CV1 2DS, UK.

: There is wide discrepancy in how published research defines and reports home-based exercise programmes. Studies consisting of fundamentally different designs have been labelled as home-based, making searching for relevant literature challenging and time consuming. This issue has been further highlighted by an increased demand for these programmes following the COVID-19 pandemic and associated government-imposed lockdowns. Read More
