Community activity and participation are reduced in transtibial amputee fallers: a wearable technology study
(BMJ Publishing Group Limited, 2014-12-12)
Wearable technology is an important development in the field of rehabilitation as it has the potential to progress understanding of activity and function in various patient groups. For lower limb amputees, falls occur ...
Ipsilateral corticomotor excitability is associated with increased gait variability in unilateral transtibial amputees
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014-04-23)
Ipsilateral primary motor cortex (M1) reorganisation after unilateral lower-limb amputation may degrade function of the amputated limb. We hypothesised unilateral lower-limb amputees would have a bilateral increase in ...
Physiotherapy Rehabilitation for Individuals with Lower Limb Amputation: A 15-Year Clinical Series
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2012-06-05)
Background and Purpose Individuals with amputations are a core group in Australian rehabilitation units that have a long index length of stay. The Repatriation General Hospital (RGH) offers general rehabilitation services ...
Intracortical inhibition is modulated by phase of prosthetic rehabilitation in transtibial amputees
Reorganization of primary motor cortex (M1) is well-described in long-term lower limb amputees. In contrast cortical reorganization during the rehabilitation period after amputation is poorly understood. Thirteen transtibial ...
Use of an Activity Monitor and GPS Device to Assess Community Activity and Participation in Transtibial Amputees
This study characterized measures of community activity and participation of transtibial amputees based on combined data from separate accelerometer and GPS devices. The relationship between community activity and participation ...
