163. Mirror Therapy: Effects on Functional Recuperation of Severe Upper Limb Paresis After Stroke

a regimen of 30 minutes of therapy, 5 times a week, for 4 weeks on top of conventional therapy. One group performs MT and the other one performs a therapy in which the same movements are performed, but without the use of a mirror, with unrestricted view of both limbs. Allocation to each group will be randomized. Arm function will be evaluated by use of a scale before, during and after the 4 week period. The assessor for the primary outcome measure will not know in which group the patient (...) while hiding the paretic one, and then asking him to perform movements of his healthy arm while looking at its reflection in the mirror.

164. Upper limb motor training using a Saebo (Abstract)

Upper limb motor training using a Saebo Assistive technologies have the potential to increase the amount of movement practice provided during inpatient stroke rehabilitation. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using the Saebo-Flex™ device in a subacute stroke setting to increase task-specific practice for people with little or no active hand movement. The secondary aim was to collect preliminary data comparing hand/upper limb function between a control group (...) . The control group received usual rehabilitation (task-specific motor training) only. Participants were assessed at baseline (pre-randomisation) and at the end of the eight-week study period. Feasibility was assessed with respect to ease of recruitment, application of the device, compliance with the treatment programme and safety. Secondary outcome measures included the Motor Assessment Scale (upper limb items), Box and Block Test, grip strength and the Stroke Impact Scale.Recruitment to the study was very

165. Minimising impairment: Protocol for a multicentre randomised controlled trial of upper limb orthoses for children with cerebral palsy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Minimising impairment: Protocol for a multicentre randomised controlled trial of upper limb orthoses for children with cerebral palsy. Upper limb orthoses are frequently prescribed for children with cerebral palsy (CP) who have muscle overactivity predominantly due to spasticity, with little evidence of long-term effectiveness. Clinical consensus is that orthoses help to preserve range of movement: nevertheless, they can be complex to construct, expensive, uncomfortable and require commitment (...) from parents and children to wear. This protocol paper describes a randomised controlled trial to evaluate whether long-term use of rigid wrist/hand orthoses (WHO) in children with CP, combined with usual multidisciplinary care, can prevent or reduce musculoskeletal impairments, including muscle stiffness/tone and loss of movement range, compared to usual multidisciplinary care alone.This pragmatic, multicentre, assessor-blinded randomised controlled trial with economic analysis will recruit 194

Signs and symptoms of CRPS, ongoing pain and delayed recovery post-fracture are common.

Imagined movements of the fractured limb are less vivid and associated with pain This study contributes to the incidence literature on CRPS.© 2016 European Pain (...) hyperalgesia in the fractured limb compared to the non-fractured side (p < 0.05). Imagined movements were reported as significantly more difficult to perform on the fractured side (p < 0.001). There was evidence of BPD in the fractured limb, similar to that found in CRPS. The incidence of CRPS was 9.4%; however, individual signs and symptoms of the condition were commonly present (70% reported ≥ one symptom). Only 33% of patients reported to being 'back to normal' 6 months after fracture with 34% reporting

. The protocol (N° U0074917/11110) was approved by the Local Ethical Committee of Bergamo, Italy. A number of clinical trials have shown significant advances in upper limb recovery with the use of different sensory - motor techniques, including intensive repetitive movement, constraint-induced movement therapy, functional electrical stimulation treatment, the use of robot-assisted therapy in association with virtual reality. Robot-assisted virtual reality intervention has been shown more effective than (...) : Armeo Spring All patients of experimental group were treated according to an established protocol for ARMEO Spring. In the first session the device was adjusted for patients arms. The physiotherapist controlled functional space of upper limb movement and correct position of working station. Each training session consisted of two parts with 30 minutes per session with "Armeo Spring" and 30 minutes per session with conventional treatment 5 days per week, for 6 weeks.

Restless Legs Syndrome: Would You Like That with Movements or Without? The restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a common sensorimotor condition that often results in discomfort and sleep disturbance. Diagnosis of RLS is entirely clinical and based upon a patient's description of subjective symptoms, and thus when considering RLS diagnosis non-specificity is a real problem. RLS is associated with periodic limb movements during sleep (PLMS) in up to 90% of RLS sufferers; however, their presence

and no intervention in improving balance strategies and performance among children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD). Design: A randomised controlled clinical trial. Sample: 87 children with DCD. Interventions: 12 weeks of PT and FMT or FMT alone in the two intervention groups. Major outcomes: Sensory organisation test - balance strategy and composite scores; Movement Assessment Battery for Children - total impairment score and balance subscore; hand-held dynamometer measurements of lower limb muscle (...) subscore; hand-held dynamometer measurements of lower limb muscle strength and time to peak force. Anticipated results and clinical significance: DCD-affected children who receive FMT together with PT will have the best balance performance outcomes. If the results are positive, this training programme could be readily transferrable to clinical practice. This could have positive socio-economic implications, such as shorter treatment periods and reduced healthcare costs. Study Design Go to Layout table

Movement Evoked Pain and Mechanical Hyperalgesia after Intramuscular Injection of Nerve Growth Factor: A Model of Sustained Elbow Pain. Lateral epicondylalgia presents as lateral elbow pain provoked by upper limb tasks. An experimental model of elbow pain provoked by movement/muscle contraction and maintained over several days is required to better understand the mechanisms underlying sustained elbow pain. This study investigated the time course and pain location induced by nerve growth factor (...) (NGF) injection into a wrist extensor muscle, and whether movement and muscle contraction/stretch provoked pain.On Day 0 twenty-six painfree volunteers were injected with NGF (N = 13) or isotonic saline (randomized) into the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) muscle of the dominant arm. On Day 2 pain was induced in all participants by hypertonic saline injection into ECRB. A Likert scale and patient-rated tennis elbow evaluation (PRTEE) was used to assess pain and functional limitation (Days 0
