  • The effects of hypertension on physical function should be considered.

  • Compared to normotensives hypertensives had slower processing speed.

  • Balance and mobility was decreased more in hypertensives than normotensives.

  • The fear of falling was higher in the hypertensives compared to normotensives.

  • Clinicians should include preventive and rehabilitative strategies in hypertensives.

  • Tonus, strength, and motor coordination are associated with walking speed reserve.

  • LEMOCOT may be used to predict walking speed reserve.

  • Exercises aimed at improving lower limb motor coordination may have the potential to improve walking speed reserve.

  • Hip/knee flexion was associated with runners anterior reach distance in the modified star excursion balance test.

  • Hip flexion was associated with the posteromedial and knee flexion with the posterolateral reach.

  • Hip extensor strength was associated with posteromedial, posterolateral and composite reaches.

  • Trunk kinematics and strength were not associated with runners’ performance in this test.

Cardiovascular responses to low-intensity isometric handgrip exercise in coronary artery disease: effects of posture
Mariana de Oliveira Gois, Rodrigo Polaquini Simões, Alberto Porta, Vandeni Clarice Kunz, Carlos Marcelo Pastre, Aparecida Maria Catai
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.010

  • Posture influences cardiovascular responses during isometric handgrip exercise.

  • STANDING promotes higher cardiovascular stress when compared to SITTING and/or SUPINE.

  • CAD promoted higher arterial pressure responses (systolic and mean arterial pressure), but it was expected.

  • Isometric handgrip exercise can be prescribed to clinically stable CAD patients, with cardiovascular monitoring.

Pressure pain hypersensitivity and referred pain from muscle trigger points in elite male wheelchair basketball players
Ricardo Ortega-Santiago, Álvaro J. González-Aguado, César Fernández-de-las-Peñas, Joshua A. Cleland, Ana I. de-la-Llave-Rincón, Mateusz D. Kobylarz, Gustavo Plaza-Manzano

  • Wheelchair basketball players with shoulder pain get localized pain sensitivity.

  • Basketball players without shoulder pain had similar pressure pain sensitivity.

  • Elite wheelchair basketball players with shoulder pain get active trigger points.

  • The referred pain elicited by active trigger points reproduced shoulder pain.

  • Basketball players without shoulder pain get similar latent trigger points.

Alterations in knee sensorimotor brain functional connectivity contributes to ACL injury in male high-school football players: a prospective neuroimaging analysis
Jed A. Diekfuss, Dustin R. Grooms, Katharine S. Nissen, Daniel K. Schneider, Kim D. Barber Foss, Staci Thomas, Scott Bonnette, Jonathan A. Dudley, Weihong Yuan, Danielle L. Reddington, Jonathan D. Ellis, James Leach, Michael Gordon, Craig Lindsey, Ken Rushford, Carlee Shafer, Gregory D. Myer
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.004

  • Prospective brain connectivity was evaluated in male high school football players.

  • Three athletes sustained complete ACL ruptures.

  • Twelve healthy athletes were matched based on school, age, height, weight, and grade.

  • Our sample (n = 3) of ACL-injured athletes exhibited prospective decreased connectivity.

  • We discuss augmenting ACL prevention programs with sensorimotor-based training.

Factors affecting exercise program adherence in acute hip fracture patients and impact on one-year survival
Ana María Rosas Hernández, Teresa Alarcón, Rocío Menéndez-Colino, Isabel Martín Maestre, Juan Ignacio González-Montalvo, Ángel Otero Puime
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.008

  • Three quarters of acute hip fracture patients were able to fully adhere with an Early Inpatient Exercise Program (EIEP).

  • Living at home, absence of disability/cognitive impairment and comorbidities before an acute hip fracture is associated with Early Inpatient Exercise Program adherence.

  • Early Inpatient Exercise Program adherence is an independent predictor of one-year survival in patients with acute hip fracture in community dwelling.

The Mini-BESTest is an independent predictor of falls in Parkinson Disease
Larissa Karlla Rodrigues Lopes, Aline Alvim Scianni, Lidiane Oliveira Lima, Raquel de Carvalho Lana, Fátima Rodrigues-De-Paula
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.006

  • It is important to evaluate dynamic balance ability during fall risk assessment.

  • The Mini-BESTest was the strongest individual predictor of falls in PD.

  • Individuals with scores less than 21.5/28 had 70.7% greater chance of falling.

Prediction of maximum oxygen uptake through incremental exercise testing using ventilometry: a cross-sectional study
Fernando Policarpo Barbosa, Paulo Eugênio Silva, Andréa Carmen Guimarães, Carlos Soares Pernambuco, Estélio Henrique Dantas
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.002

  • The high operational cost of implementing CPET hampers its use.

  • Ventilometry combined to ergometric test can be used for estimating V˙ O2max.

  • We analyzed the reliability of ventilometry for estimating V˙ O2max.

  • We presented two reliable equations for estimating V˙ O2max.
