  • Knee extensor torque complexity is reduced in the presence of frailty syndrome.

  • Frail participants showed a reduction in body mass, peak knee extensor torque and decreased physical performance.

  • The relationship between complexity and force levels was similar in all groups.

  • Education, joint stabilization, and myofascial release were most used for patellar tendinopathy rehabilitation.

  • Quadriceps eccentrics, education, joint stabilization and lumbo-pelvic stabilization and hamstrings stretching were frequently used for patellar tendinopathy prevention.

  • Brazilian physical therapists consider pain, function and functional test results to discharge an athlete.

  • Our results revealed an inconsistency between interventions used in clinical practice and interventions recommended by the best available evidence.

How does context influence arm use after stroke? A qualitative content analysis among rural community-dwelling stroke survivors
Vasanthan Rajagopalan, Manikandan Natarajan, Johnson Alex, John M. Solomon
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.008

  • Personal and environmental context influence affected arm use of stroke survivors.

  • Rural stroke survivors have limited awareness and knowledge of active functional task practice.

  • For recovery of the affected upper extremity, many stroke survivors rely on passive recovery methods.

  • Self-engagement in active functional task practice is facilitated by an enriched home environment and perception of ongoing recovery.

Aline Almeida Gulart, Cintia Laura Pereira de Araujo, Anelise Bauer Munari, Karoliny dos Santos, Manuela Karloh, Betina Gabriele Foscarini, Pedro Dal Lago, Anamaria Fleig Mayer
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.009

  • Glittre-ADL test minimal important difference (MID) is −0.38min in COPD patients.

  • Glittre-ADL test's MID reflects the changes in functional capacity.

  • Two tests are necessary for interpretation of changes induced by pulmonary rehabilitation.

Maíra C. Lixandrão, James W. Stinear, Tonya Rich, Chao-Ying Chen, Tim Feyma, Gregg D. Meekins, Bernadette T. Gillick
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.002

  • Variability exists in the duration of ipsilesional and contralesional cortical silent period durations in children with congenital hemiparesis.

  • EMG breakthrough activity was consistently observed during ipsilesional CSP assessment.

  • The amplitude of ipsilesional EMG breakthrough was higher than contralesional EMG breakthrough.

  • Seven cervical sensorimotor control tests measure different skills.

  • Tests cannot be grouped according to the subsystems of sensorimotor control.

  • Clinicians have to perform each test, as each test provides unique information.
