  • deep tendon reflexes
  • The Miller Fisher syndrome a variant of the Guillain-Barre syndrome characterized by the acute onset of oculomotor dysfunction, ataxia, and loss of deep tendon reflexes with relative sparing of strength in the extremities and trunk. (medcraveonline.com)
  • Clinical parameters such as pain on motion, lumbar range of motion, straight leg raising test, deep tendon reflexes, dermatomal sensations, motor functions and neurogenic claudication distances were assessed at admission and were compared after a conservative treatment program was completed.

  • plantar
  • 4. A patient shows the Babinski sign in their left leg but a normal plantar reflex in their right leg. (biology-online.org)
  • To clarify the plantar reflex profile at 1 year of life in different categories of neurodevelopmental abnormalities, plantar responses were examined prospectively in 204 high-risk infants, of whom 58 developed cerebral palsy, 22 had developmental retardation without motor disturbance, and 124 were normal at a follow-up examination at 3 years of age.

  • spasticity
  • Are H and stretch reflexes in hemiparesis reproducible and correlated with spasticity? (springer.com)
  • As yet, there is no literature addressing the reproducibility of the existing barrage of clinical evaluations of spasticity and reflex measurement. (springer.com)
  • After delineating the differences in spasticity scores and reflex functions between spastic and normal states, the aims of this study were to examine the reliability of these measurements in hemiparetic subjects, and the correlation between altered reflex functions and clinically measured spasticity. (springer.com)
  • However, results of the correlational study indicated that the severity of spasticity may not be fully described by static reflex measurements alone. (springer.com)
  • Burke D, Lance JW (1973) Studies of the reflex effects of primary and secondary spindle endings in spasticity. (springer.com)
  • Chan CWY, Levin MF (1990) Relief of spasticity by TENS is associated with improvement in reflex and voluntary motor functions. (springer.com)
  • Reliability of a Medical Device for Spasticity Quantification Based on the Velocity Dependence of the Stretch Reflex Threshold , Trabalho apresentado em ETFA'2011 - IEEE Conference on Emerging Technologies & Factory Automation, In Proceedings of ETFA'2011 - IEEE Conference on Emerging Technologies & Factory Automation, Toulouse, 2011.

  • neurons
  • The stretch reflex can be activated by external forces such as a load placed on the muscle or internal forces i.e. the motor neurons being stimulated from within. (kenhub.com)
  • This allows reflex actions to occur very quickly by activating spinal motor neurons without experiencing the delay of routing signals through the brain, although the brain will receive sensory input while the reflex action takes place. (dragonsociety.com)
  • fibers
  • Particularly interesting was the finding of slow tonic myosin heavy chain expressing muscle fibers, a developmental marker for muscle spindles, in the cultures showing that this system has the potential to contain the complete reflex circuits. (ovid.com)
  • regulation
  • They function to maintain the homeostasis (autonomic reflexes), which include breathing, blood pressure regulation and heartbeat. (kenhub.com)
  • clinical
  • In a clinical study with 57 patients with multiple sclerosis cannabis reduced the stretch reflex, Italian researchers wrote in the journal International Clinical Psychopharmacology. (cannabis-med.org)
  • time
  • We use this natural reflex all the time to cause the opponent to rotate his body away from us and take the other arm (and fist) out of the fight to keep us from getting hammered with it! (dragonsociety.com)
