Strengthening the quadriceps femoris muscle versus other knee training programs for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.

Kus G, Yeldan I

People with knee osteoarthritis have atrophy of the muscles surrounding the knee joint. Therefore, exercise programs primarily have been focused on the strengthening of quadriceps femoris muscle (QFM). Primary aim of this systematic review was to determine which exercise increases strength of the QFM and describe the details of the...

Early Stroke Rehabilitation of the Upper Limb Assisted with an Electromyography-Driven Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation-Robotic Arm.

Qian Q, Hu X, Lai Q, Ng SC, Zheng Y, Poon W

Effective poststroke motor rehabilitation depends on repeated limb practice with voluntary efforts. An electromyography (EMG)-driven neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)-robot arm was designed for the multi-joint physical training on the elbow, the wrist, and the fingers. To investigate the training effects of the device-assisted approach on subacute stroke patients and to...

Combined electrical stimulation and exercise for swallow rehabilitation post-stroke: a pilot randomized control trial.

Sproson L, Pownall S, Enderby P, Freeman J

Dysphagia is common after stroke, affecting up to 50% of patients initially. It can lead to post-stroke pneumonia, which causes 30% of stroke-related deaths, a longer hospital stay and poorer health outcomes. Dysphagia care post-stroke generally focuses on the management of symptoms, via modified oral intake textures and adapted posture,...

A stimulus for eating. The use of neuromuscular transcutaneous electrical stimulation in patients affected by severe dysphagia after subacute stroke: A pilot randomized controlled trial.

Simonelli M, Ruoppolo G, Iosa M, Morone G, Fusco A, Grasso MG, Gallo A, Paolucci S

Oropharyngeal dysphagia is a common problem in subacute stroke patients leading to aspiration pneumonia and malnutrition. Non-invasive neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) coupled with traditional therapy could be best treatment option for patients with post-stroke dysphagia, however results are still inconclusive and more studies are requested. The aim of the study...

Neuromuscular electric stimulation effect on lower-extremity motor recovery and gait kinematics of patients with stroke: a randomized controlled trial.

Yavuzer G, Geler-Külcü D, Sonel-Tur B, Kutlay S, Ergin S, Stam HJ

To evaluate the effects of neuromuscular electric stimulation (NMES) of the tibialis anterior muscle on motor recovery and gait kinematics of patients with stroke.Randomized, controlled, assessor-blinded trial.Rehabilitation ward and gait laboratory of a university hospital.A total of 25 consecutive inpatients with stroke (mean age, 55y), all within 6 months poststroke...

[ARMOR: an electromechanical robot for upper limb training following stroke. A prospective randomised controlled pilot study].

Mayr A, Kofler M, Saltuari L

Due to the complexity of the upper motor neuron syndrome, functional improvement in the paretic upper limb after stroke continues to be a challenge in neurorehabilitation. Robot-assisted training has been shown to be useful in relearning gait. In order to achieve similar results in the upper limb, an electromechanical arm...

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation for motor restoration in hemiplegia.

Chae J, Sheffler L, Knutson J

Clinical applications of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) in stroke rehabilitation provide both therapeutic and functional benefits. Therapeutic applications include upper and lower limb motor relearning and reduction of poststroke shoulder pain. There is growing evidence that NMES, especially those approaches that incorporate task-specific strategies, is effective in facilitating upper and...

The effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation on clinical improvement in hemiplegic lower extremity rehabilitation in chronic stroke: a single-blind, randomised, controlled trial.

Mesci N, Ozdemir F, Kabayel DD, Tokuc B

In this study, the effectiveness of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) was evaluated in lower extremity rehabilitation in patients with chronic stroke.The study enrolled 40 patients with chronic stroke. Twenty patients each were assigned to the treatment group and the control group. All patients received a conventional rehabilitation program for a...

Contralaterally controlled neuromuscular electrical stimulation for recovery of ankle dorsiflexion: a pilot randomized controlled trial in patients with chronic post-stroke hemiplegia.

Knutson JS, Hansen K, Nagy J, Bailey SN, Gunzler DD, Sheffler LR, Chae J

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of contralaterally controlled neuromuscular electrical stimulation (CCNMES) vs. cyclic neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on lower extremity impairment, functional ambulation, and gait characteristics.Twenty-six survivors of stroke with chronic (≥6 mos) foot drop during ambulation were randomly assigned to 6 wks of...
