Foot pronation affects pelvic motion during the loading response phase of gait
Joana Ferreira Hornestam, Paula Maria Machado Arantes, Thales Rezende Souza, Renan Alves Resende, Cecilia Ferreira Aquino, Sergio Teixeira Fonseca, Paula Lanna Pereira da Silva

  • Bilateral increased foot pronation affects pelvic kinematics during walking.

  • Increased pronation modifies pelvic motion during the loading response phase of gait.

  • Bilateral increased foot pronation increased mean pelvic contralateral drop.

  • Bilateral increased pronation reduced pelvic range of motion in the frontal plane.

  • Increased pronation reduced mean pelvic rotation towards the contralateral side.

“A journey to learn about pain”: the development and validation of a comic book about pain neuroscience education for children
Felipe Reis, Tonya Mizell Palermo, Louise Acalantis, Leandro Calazans Nogueira, Ney Meziat-Filho, Adriaan Louw, Kelly Ickmans

  • Pain is a common problem in the field of pediatrics.

  • To date, pain education resources for young children are lacking.

  • A comic book about pain education can be a useful method to present pain concepts to children.

  • Pain education can contribute to changing children's maladaptive beliefs and behaviors.

Can we explain running-related injury preventive behavior? A path analysis
Luiz Hespanhol, Caio Sain Vallio, Willem van Mechelen, Evert Verhagen

  • The Theory of Planned Behavior explained 49% of running-related injury preventive behavior.

  • The Theory of Planned Behavior explained 50% of intention toward preventive behavior.

  • A 1-point increase in Theory of Planned Behavior determinants increased the likelihood of preventive behavior by 54%.

  • Intention increased by 0.66 point when the other determinants increased by 1 point.

Does verbal encouragement change dynamic balance? The effect of verbal encouragement on Star Excursion Balance Test performance in chronic ankle Instability
Abbis H. Jaffri, Susan Saliba

  • Reach distance deficits in anterior and posteromedial directions were observed in patients with CAI under standard conditions on the SEBT.

  • These reach distance deficits between CAI and healthy group disappeared when verbal encouragement was given.

  • Psychological constraints due to injury may affect balance performance on the SEBT.

Oxygen uptake efficiency slope: A submaximal test evaluation tool that provides cardiopulmonary reserve data in individuals with Parkinson's disease
Carlos Rego Barros, Kátia Monte-Silva, Camilla Boudoux Sales, Renata Pereira Souza, Thaís Santos, Maíra Pessoa, Rodrigo Viana, Luciana Alcoforado, Anna Myrna Jaguaribe Lima, Juliana Fernandes, Daniella Cunha Brandão, Armèle Dornelas de Andrade

  • Oxygen uptake efficiency slope (OUES) was related to VO2peak in patients with parkinson.

  • Individuals with parkinson's disease had lower cardiorespiratory fitness.

  • OUES could be used as a submaximal test evaluation tool in parkinson's disease.

Effects of different electrical stimulation currents and phase durations on submaximal and maximum torque, efficiency, and discomfort: a randomized crossover trial
Natália Lucília Pinto Damo, Karenina Arrais Modesto, Ivo Vieira de Sousa Neto, Martim Bottaro, Nicolas Babault, João Luiz Quaglioti Durigan

  • KFAC and PC NMES induced similar relative submaximal and maximum evoked-torque and perceived discomfort for a given phase duration.

  • Regardless of NMES-type, the wider phase duration resulted in higher current NMES-efficiency in generating evoked-torque.

  • For different types of current, intensity was not related to the maximum perceived discomfort to produce submaximal contractions.
