The data were obtained from physicians' reports, death certificates, and interviews with physicians. We compared persons who took lethal medications prescribed under the act with those who died from similar illnesses but did not receive prescriptions for lethal medications. RESULTS: Information on 23 persons who received prescriptions for lethal medications was reported to the Oregon Health Division; 15 died after taking the lethal medications, 6 died from underlying illnesses, and 2 were alive as of January 1, 1999. The median age of the 15 patients who died after taking lethal medications was 69 years; 8 were male, and all 15 were white. Thirteen of the 15 patients had cancer. The case patients and controls were similar with regard to sex, race, urban or rural residence, level of education, health insurance coverage, and hospice enrollment. No case patients or controls expressed concern about the financial impact of their illness. One case patient and 15 controls expressed concern about inadequate control of pain (P=0.10). The case patients were more likely than the controls to have never married (P=0.04) and were more likely to be concerned about loss of autonomy due to illness (P=0.01) and loss of control of bodily functions (P=0.02). At death, 21 percent of the case patients and 84 percent of the controls were completely disabled (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: During the first year of legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon, the decision to request and use a prescription for lethal medication was associated with concern about loss of autonomy or control of bodily functions, not with fear of intractable pain or concern about financial loss. In addition, we found that the choice of physician-assisted suicide was not associated with level of education or health insurance coverage.  (+info)

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy and quality of life. (2/6812)

The quality of life (QOL) of 79 people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and 37 non-diabetic controls was assessed using the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP). The NHP consists of six domains assessing energy, sleep, pain, physical mobility, emotional reactions and social isolation. Symptomatic diabetic neuropathy was present in 41 of the patients. The neuropathy patients had significantly higher scores (impaired QOL) in 5/6 NHP domains than either the other diabetic patients (p < 0.01) or the non-diabetic (p < 0.001) controls. These were: emotional reaction, energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep. The diabetic patients without neuropathy also had significantly impaired QOL for 4/6 NHP domains compared with the non-diabetic control group (p < 0.05) (energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep). This quantification of the detrimental effect on QOL of diabetes, and in particular of chronic symptomatic peripheral diabetic neuropathy, emphasizes the need for further research into effective management of these patients.  (+info)

Teaching pedestrian skills to retarded persons: generalization from the classroom to the natural environment. (3/6812)

Little attention has been given to teaching adaptive community skills to retarded persons. In this study, five retarded male students were taught basic pedestrian skills in a classroom- Training was conducted on a model built to simulate city traffic conditions. Each subject was taught five specific skills involved in street crossing in sequence, viz. intersection recognition, pedestrian-light skills, traffic-light skills, and skills for two different stop-sign conditions. Before, during, and after training, subjects were tested on generalization probes on model and under actual city traffic conditions. Results of a multiple-baseline design acorss both subjects and behaviors indicated that after receiving classroom training on the skills, each subject exhibited appropriate pedestrian skills under city traffic conditions. In addition, training in some skills appeared to facilitate performance in skills not yet trained.  (+info)

The Sock Test for evaluating activity limitation in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4/6812)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Assessment within rehabilitation often must reflect patients' perceived functional problems and provide information on whether these problems are caused by impairments of the musculoskeletal system. Such capabilities were examined in a new functional test, the Sock Test, simulating the activity of putting on a sock. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Intertester reliability was examined in 21 patients. Concurrent validity, responsiveness, and predictive validity were examined in a sample of 337 patients and in subgroups of this sample. RESULTS: Intertester reliability was acceptable. Sock Test scores were related to concurrent reports of activity limitation in dressing activities. Scores also reflected questionnaire-derived reports of problems in a broad range of activities of daily living and pain and were responsive to change over time. Increases in age and body mass index increased the likelihood of Sock Test scores indicating activity limitation. Pretest scores were predictive of perceived difficulties in dressing activities after 1 year. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: Sock Test scores reflect perceived activity limitations and restrictions of the musculoskeletal system.  (+info)

The psychometric properties of clinical rating scales used in multiple sclerosis. (5/6812)

OullII;l y Many clinical rating scales have been proposed to assess the impact of multiple sclerosis on patients, but only few have been evaluated formally for reliability, validity and responsiveness. We assessed the psychometric properties of five commonly used scales in multiple sclerosis, the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), the Scripps Neurological Rating Scale (SNRS), the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), the Ambulation Index (AI) and the Cambridge Multiple Sclerosis Basic Score (CAMBS). The score frequency distributions of all five scales were either bimodal (EDSS and AI) or severely skewed (SNRS, FIM and CAMBS). The reliability of each scale depended on the definition of 'agreement'. Inter-and intra-rater reliabilities were high when 'agreement' was considered to exist despite a difference of up to 1.0 EDSS point (two 0.5 steps), 13 SNRS points, 9 FIM points, 1 AI point and 1 point on the various CAMBS domains. The FIM, AI, and the relapse and progression domains of the CAMBS were sensitive to clinical change, but the EDSS and the SNRS were unresponsive. The validity of these scales as impairment (SNRS and EDSS) and disability (EDSS, FIM, AI and the disability domain of the CAMBS) measures was established. All scales correlated closely with other measures of handicap and quality of life. None of these scales satisfied the psychometric requirements of outcome measures completely, but each had some desirable properties. The SNRS and the EDSS were reliable and valid measures of impairment and disability, but they were unresponsive. The FIM was a reliable, valid and responsive measure of disability, but it is cumbersome to administer and has a limited content validity. The AI was a reliable and valid ambulation-related disability scale, but it was weakly responsive. The CAMBS was a reliable (all four domains) and responsive (relapse and progression domains) outcome measure, but had a limited validity (handicap domain). These psychometric properties should be considered when designing further clinical trials in multiple sclerosis.  (+info)

Efficacy and safety of rivastigmine in patients with Alzheimer's disease: international randomised controlled trial. (6/6812)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of rivastigmine on the core domains of Alzheimer's disease. DESIGN: Prospective, randomised, multicentre, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel group trial. Patients received either placebo, 1-4 mg/day (lower dose) rivastigmine, or 6-12 mg/day (higher dose) rivastigmine. Doses were increased in one of two fixed dose ranges (1-4 mg/day or 6-12 mg/day) over the first 12 weeks with a subsequent assessment period of 14 weeks. SETTING: 45 centres in Europe and North America. PARTICIPANTS: 725 patients with mild to moderately severe probable Alzheimer's disease diagnosed according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition, and the criteria of the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke and the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association. OUTCOME MEASURES: Cognitive subscale of the Alzheimer's disease assessment scale, rating on the clinician interview based impression of change incorporating caregiver information scale, and the progressive deterioration scale. RESULTS: At the end of the study cognitive function had deteriorated among those in the placebo group. Scores on the Alzheimer's disease assessment scale improved in patients in the higher dose group when compared with patients taking placebo (P<0.05). Significantly more patients in the higher dose group had improved by 4 points or more than had improved in the placebo group (24% (57/242) v 16% (39/238)). Global function as rated by the clinician interview scale had significantly improved among those in the higher dose group compared with those taking placebo (P<0.001), and significantly more patients in the higher dose group showed improvement than did in the placebo group (37% (80/219) v 20% (46/230)). Mean scores on the progressive deterioration scale improved from baseline in patients in the higher dose group but fell in the placebo group. Adverse events were predominantly gastrointestinal, of mild to moderate severity, transient, and occurred mainly during escalation of the dose. 23% (55/242) of those in the higher dose group, 7% (18/242) of those in the lower dose group, and 7% (16/239) of those in the placebo group discontinued treatment because of adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: Rivastigmine is well tolerated and effective. It improves cognition, participation in activities of daily living, and global evaluation ratings in patients with mild to moderately severe Alzheimer's disease. This is the first treatment to show compelling evidence of efficacy in a predominantly European population.  (+info)

Long-term functional status and quality of life after lower extremity revascularization. (7/6812)

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess the longer term (up to 7 years) functional status and quality of life outcomes from lower extremity revascularization. METHODS: This study was designed as a cross-sectional telephone survey and chart review at the University of Minnesota Hospital. The subjects were patients who underwent their first lower extremity revascularization procedure or a primary amputation for vascular disease between January 1, 1989, and January 31, 1995, who had granted consent or had died. The main outcome measures were ability to walk, SF-36 physical function, SF-12, subsequent amputation, and death. RESULTS: The medical records for all 329 subjects were reviewed after the qualifying procedures for details of the primary procedure (62.6% arterial bypass graft, 36.8% angioplasty, 0.6% atherectomy), comorbidities (64% diabetics), severity of disease, and other vascular risk factors. All 166 patients who were living were surveyed by telephone between June and August 1996. At 7 years after the qualifying procedure, 73% of the patients who were alive still had the qualifying limb, although 63% of the patients had died. Overall, at the time of the follow-up examination (1 to 7.5 years after the qualifying procedure), 65% of the patients who were living were able to walk independently and 43% had little or no limitation in walking several blocks. In a multiple regression model, patients with diabetes and patients who were older were less likely to be able to walk at follow-up examination and had a worse functional status on the SF-36 and a lower physical health on the SF-12. Number of years since the procedure was not a predictor in any of the analyses. CONCLUSION: Although the long-term mortality rate is high in the population that undergoes lower limb revascularization, the survivors are likely to retain their limb over time and have good functional status.  (+info)

Infratentorial atrophy on magnetic resonance imaging and disability in multiple sclerosis. (8/6812)

Loss of tissue volume in the central nervous system may provide an index of fixed neurological dysfunction in multiple sclerosis. Recent magnetic resonance studies have shown a modest relationship between clinical disability rating scores and transverse sectional area of the cervical spinal cord. To explore further the relationship between atrophy and disability in multiple sclerosis, we estimated the volumes of infratentorial structures from MRIs in a cross-sectional study of 41 patients, 21 with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis and 20 with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. We used the Cavalieri method of modern design stereology with point counting to estimate the volume of brainstem, cerebellum and upper cervical spinal cord from three-dimensional MRIs acquired with an MPRAGE (Magnetization-prepared Rapid Acquisition Gradient Echo) sequence. The volume of the upper (C1-C3) cervical spinal cord was significantly correlated with a composite spinal cord score derived from the appropriate Functional Scale scores of the Expanded Disability Status Scale (r = -0.50, P < 0.01). The cerebellar (r = 0.49, P < 0.01) and brainstem (r = 0.34, P < 0.05) volumes correlated with the Scripp's Neurological Disability Rating Scale scores. The upper cervical cord volumes (r = -0.39, P < 0.01), but not the brainstem or cerebellar volumes, were significantly associated with disease duration. MRI-estimated structural volumes may provide a simple index of axonal and/or myelin loss, the presumed pathological substrates of irreversible impairment and disability in multiple sclerosis.  (+info)

Objective: In this study we planned to investigate the effects of pain, disease severity, and radiological grading on the disability of daily living activities in knee osteoarthritis (OA) patients, and to find out the determinative factors.. Patients and Methods: A total of 50 knee OA patients who were admitted to the outpatient clinic of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation clinic were included this study. The diagnosis was based on the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria. Patients were evaluated according to pain, disease severity, radiological grading, and disability in daily living activities parameters. Pain was assessed by using Visual Analogue Scale (VAS; 0-10cm), disesae severity was measured by Lequesne severity index, radiologic grading was based on Kellgren and Lawrence OA criteria and disability was assessed by using the Health assessment Questionnaire (HAQ)..

Definition of Extended Activities of Daily Living in the Financial Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Extended Activities of Daily Living? Meaning of Extended Activities of Daily Living as a finance term. What does Extended Activities of Daily Living mean in finance?
Activities of daily living such as physical activity, sleep duration, and social interactions, have been associated with physical and cognitive health outcomes. However much of this evidence is based on self-reported questionnaire data that are a-priori selected, sporadically measured, imprecise, and prone to measurement error. In an effort to address some of these issues, cohort studies now collect objective measures of movement via wrist-worn accelerometer sensors. However, such studies narrowly focus on just a small number of summary statistics of pre-specified movement types such as sleep duration, overall activity, or walking. Therefore, uncertainty exists on the health relevance of patterns of daily living activities, in terms of how: 1) they should be measured, 2) their interpretation, and 3) their association with disease onset.. A large proportion of the population own smartphones, which might offer the ability to continuously, and objectively, measure markers of health status in ...

abstract = Objective. To evaluate a set of psychometric properties (i.e., data completeness, targeting, and external construct validity) of the Parkinsons disease Activities of Daily Living Scale (PADLS) in people with Parkinsons disease (PD). Specific attention was paid to the association between PADLS and PD severity, according to the Hoehn & Yahr (H&Y) staging. Methods. The sample included 251 persons with PD (mean age 70 [SD 9] years). Data collection comprised a self-administered postal survey, structured interviews, and clinical assessments at home visits. Results. Data completeness was 99.6{\%} and the mean PADLS score was 2.1. Floor and ceiling effects were 22{\%} and 2{\%}, respectively. PADLS scores were more strongly associated (rs,0.5) with perceived functional independence, ADL dependency, walking difficulties, and self-rated PD severity than with variables such as PD duration and cognitive function (rs,0.5). PADLS scores differed across H&Y stages (Kruskal-Wallis test, p,0.001). ...

OBJECTIVE: The objective was to create a linguistically and culturally validated Swedish version of the Valued Life Activities scale. The aim was also to describe its content and concurrent validity and its internal consistency in persons with rheumatoid arthritis.. METHODS: The Valued Life Activities scale was translated to Swedish and culturally adapted. In order to describe the content validity, both the Swedish and original Valued Life Activities scale were linked to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. The concurrent validity and internal consistency were evaluated in 737 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. To establish concurrent validity, the scale was correlated to disease activity, activity limitations, and life satisfaction. Internal consistency was assessed with Cronbachs alpha.. RESULTS: The equivalence of meaning between the Swedish and the original Valued Life Activities scale was ensured by harmonization review. Content validity was high when ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether disaggregated activities of daily living (ADL) limitations better predict the risk of nursing home admission compared to conventionally used ADL disability counts.. DATA SOURCES: We used panel data from the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) for years 1998-2010. The HRS is a nationally representative survey of adults older than 50 years (n = 18,801).. STUDY DESIGN: We fitted Cox regressions in a continuous time survival model with age at first nursing home admission as the outcome. Time-varying ADL disability types were the key explanatory variables.. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Of the six ADL limitations, bathing difficulty emerged as the strongest predictor of subsequent nursing home placement across cohorts. Eating and dressing limitations were also influential in driving admissions among more recent cohorts. Using simple ADL counts for analysis yielded similar adjusted R(2) s; however, the amount of explained variance doubled when we allowed the ADL disability measures ...

Instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) are things you do every day to take care of yourself and your home. They are one way to measure how well you can live on your own. While activities of daily living (ADLs) are basic self-care tasks like bathing, IADLs require more complex planning and thinking.. Sometimes aging and health problems make it hard to do these tasks. You might not even notice that you cant do them as well as you used to. Often, the first sign that someone needs a little extra help is when that person cant do IADLs.. Your doctor uses IADLs to measure how much help you need. Knowing what you can and cant do for yourself is an important first step to getting help. And when you have the help you need, you can stay as independent as possible.. Your doctor will want to know if you are able to do tasks such as:. ...
Information in this chart comes from the Activities of Daily Living Self-Performance Hierarchy Scale and shows the prevalence of long term care residents with different performance levels in relation to activities of daily living. Activities of daily living refer to the basic skills that a person requires in order to care for and look after ones self and body (e.g., bathing, dressing).. The ability to perform activities of daily living depends on cognitive functioning as well as motor (e.g., balance) and perceptual abilities. Physical, cognitive, and sensory changes occur over time, which can impact functional performance. This scale describes a residents ability to perform four key activities of daily living during the last seven days at the time of assessment.. Each of these activities of daily living is evaluated to create an overall score that ranges from 0 (conducts task independently) to 6 (staff performed the task for the resident). A higher score indicates more impairment in the ...
BACKGROUND: MCI is an intermediate status between normal cognitive function and dementia. MCI was defined as follows: The change of cognition was detectable for client and family members, but there was no impact on daily function. However, the definition of daily function was ambiguous. Recent research has suggested that people with MCI encounter various difficulties in advanced daily function, including IADLs and leisure. The result regarding the evaluation of the IADL function in MCI is still inconsistent. Therefore, the nature and extent of complex functional difficulties in this group is still to be discovered. Through qualitative research methods, individuals experience and culture may be investigated and the difficulty of daily life observed ...

Background: Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) measures physical and cognitive function in older adults and an impaired IADL correlates with poor clinical outcomes. The relationship between IADLs and cardiovascular disease is less studied. We investigated whether impaired IADLs was associated with cardiovascular outcomes in the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS).. Methods: Of the 5795 community-dwelling adults ≥65 years in the CHS, 5511 were free of prevalent HF and had data on IADL at baseline. IADL impairment was defined as self-reported difficulty with ≥1 of the 6 items: telephone use, shopping, preparing food, performing light or heavy household work, and managing finances. Overall, 1333 participants reported IADL impairment, of which 1023 (77%) had difficulty with only 1 item (188, 70, 41, 6 and 5 reported 2- to 6-item difficulty resp.). Propensity scores for IADL impairment, calculated for each of the 5511 participants, were used to assemble a cohort of 1038 pairs of ...
The results of this large epidemiological study have demonstrated an overall prevalence of GOLD-defined COPD in the Spanish population between 40 and 80 years of age of 10.2%. The prevalence is almost three times higher in men than in women and increases with age, cumulative tobacco consumption and low education level. Interestingly, only 27% of the cases detected reported a previous diagnosis of the disease, while the probability of being diagnosed increased with age, intensity of smoking, the severity of the disease and the impairment in HRQL. Even patients with undiagnosed COPD had a significant impairment in HRQL and in some ADL.. Our results are similar to the 9.1% prevalence of COPD obtained around 10 years ago in another epidemiological study using the old ERS criteria for COPD in Spain in subjects between 40 and 69 years of age.3 Although the smoking prevalence among women has increased in Spain in the last decades,14 it appears that the prevalence of COPD in women has not yet fully ...

Mean age was 72.1 years (54.9% female).Mean GS was 38.3 and 22.9 kg and mean BMI was 29 kg/m2, respectively in males and females. Weakness prevalence using GS and GS:BMI definitions were 7.8 and 15.2 (p,0.001), respectively in males, and 11.4 and 13.3% (p=0.04), in females. Overall prevalence of physical limitations, basic and instrumental ADL limitations was 52.9%, 28.1%, and 35.9%. In those with weakness, prevalence of physical limitations, basic ADL and instrumental ADL was 78.5%, 42.3% and 65.3% using the GS definition, and 79.7%, 40.7%, and 58.8% using the GS/BMI definition. GS and the GS/BMI definitions of weakness were strongly associated with physical limitations (OR 2.19 [95%CI:1.67-2.87] and 2.52 [2.01-3.17]), basic ADL (OR 1.59 [1.22-2.07] and 1.66 [1.32-2.07]), and instrumental ADLs (OR 1.98 [1.28-2.54] and 1.78 [1.44-2.20 ...
Ability to predict and prevent incipient functional decline in older adults may help prolong independence. Cognition is related to everyday function and easily administered, sensitive cognitive tests may help identify at-risk individuals. Factors like depressive symptoms and self-rated health are also associated with functional ability and may be as important as cognition. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between concurrent longitudinal changes in cognition, depression, self-rated health and everyday function in a well-defined cohort of healthy 85 year olds that were followed-up at the age of 90 in the Elderly in Linkoping Screening Assessment 85 study. Regression analyses were used to determine if cognitive decline as assessed by global (the Mini-Mental State Examination) and domain specific (the Cognitive Assessment Battery, CAB) cognitive tests predicted functional decline in the context of changes in depressive symptoms and self-rated health. Results showed ...

However, the problematic nature of involuntary movement in children with spastic cerebral palsy causes difficulty with chair interfacing and positioning. Furthermore the high impact forces suddenly produced result in high contact forces that potentially cause pain and injury, which also impair their functional abilities. During an extensor spasm, the impact forces experienced by the user on conventional rigid systems may be reduced with the use of a wheelchair with dynamic response. The dynamic backrest ...

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Activities of daily living (ADL) are daily home-based activities that people carry out to maintain health and well-being. ADLs include the ability to: eat and drink unassisted, move, go to the toilet, carry out personal hygiene tasks, dress unassisted, and groom. Stroke causes impairment-related functional limitations that may result in difficulties participating in ADLs independent of supervision, direction, or physical assistance.For adults with stroke, the goal of occupational therapy is to improve their ability to carry out activities of daily living. Strategies used by occupational therapists include assessment, treatment, adaptive techniques, assistive technology, and environmental adaptations. This is an update of the Cochrane review first published in 2006. To assess the effects of occupational therapy interventions on the functional ability of adults with stroke in the domain of activities of daily living, compared ...

Items 701, 703, 705 and 707 may be used to undertake a health assessment for people with an intellectual disability. A person is considered to have an intellectual disability if they have significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning (two standard deviations below the average intelligence quotient [IQ]) and would benefit from assistance with daily living activities. Where general practitioners wish to confirm intellectual disability and a patients need for assistance with activities of daily living, they may seek verification from a paediatrician registered to practice in Australia or from a government-provided or funded disability service that has assessed the patients intellectual function. The health assessment provides a structured clinical framework for general practitioners to comprehensively assess the physical, psychological and social function of patients with an intellectual disability and to identify any medical intervention and preventive health care required.

Purpose: This study aimed to identify the relationships among physical symptoms, activities of daily living, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in community-dwelling older adults. Methods: A stratified random sampling method was conducted to recruit participants from May 10 to August 17, 2007. Physical symptoms were measured using the Physical Health Questionnaire (PHQ), activities of daily living using the Late-Life Functional and Disability Instrument (LLFDI), and HRQoL using the Medical Outcomes Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) in 242 community-dwelling elderly Korean people. Results: The HRQoL correlates with the physical symptoms (r=-.31) and the function component (r=.59). Of the two disability parts of the LLFDI, the limitation dimension correlates higher (r=.57) with HRQoL than the frequency dimension (r=.42). The HRQoL is significantly associated with the function component, and disability limitation in capability which explained 44.4% of variance in physical health. Conclusion: ...
OBJECTIVE: Though the association between physical frailty and health is well established, little is known about its association with other domains of quality of life (QoL). This study investigated the association between physical frailty and multiple domains of QoL in community-dwelling older people.. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study.. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Data of the 2011 annual assessment of 927 older people (age 73-77 years) from the Lc65+ cohort study were used.. MEASUREMENTS: Physical frailty was assessed by Frieds five criteria: shrinking; weakness; poor endurance, exhaustion; slowness; and low activity. QoL was assessed using 28 items yielding a QoL score and seven domain-specific QoL subscores (Feeling of safety; Health and mobility; Autonomy; Close entourage; Material resources; Esteem and recognition; and Social and cultural life). Low QoL (QoL score or QoL subscores in the lowest quintile) was used as dependent variable in logistic regression analyses adjusted for age ...
Senior care professionals use a common phrase, activities of daily living (ADLs), to discuss the everyday functions that seniors may or may not be able to complete on their own. The inability of elderly individuals to independently participate in activities of daily living indicates that they would benefit from home care services.. In Lexington, South Carolina, Betsy noticed that her mom was struggling with maintaining her personal hygiene and seemed to be ignoring her troubles, as she assumed they were just due to older age, and carried on with her life. Eventually, though, she started having difficulty walking up the stairs and preparing her meals. Finally, Maries daughter Betsy called in a senior care professional to discuss the challenges her mother was facing.. When determining the level of home care Marie needed, the senior care professional evaluated her ability to perform ADLs.. ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! There is scant knowledge of the effects of country of birth on the health of individuals in the years prior to and after retirement. The aim of this study was to consider country of birth in relation to health status, instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) and all-cause mortality when adjusted for socioeconomic status (SES). Cross-sectional data were collected between 1986 and 1991 on 8959 individuals between the ages of 55 and 74. Self-reported data were analysed using a logistic regression model while the mortality data were analysed by means of a proportional hazard model. In the present study, immigrants from Southern Europe, Eastern Europe and Finland carried significantly increased risks of poor health even after adjustment for SES. Southern Europeans, refugees from Developing countries and Finns exhibited an increased risk of impaired IADL compared to Swedes, even after adjustment for SES. In conclusion, country of birth was associated with poor health
Introduction: Aquatic rehabilitation therapy is proving to be one of the modalities of choice for neurologic, orthopedic and other conditions. By means of the biophysical properties of water such as buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, viscosity and cohesion, the effects of reduced joint loading, prevention of venous stasis and muscle strengthening can be obtained in the pool. In order to know whether the body function in the water can be converted to the body function on the ground, an evaluation tool for the body function in the water is needed. However, there have been few commonly accepted body function evaluation tools for aquatic rehabilitation therapy. The aims of this study were to develop an evaluation tool for aquatic rehabilitation therapy and to investigate correlations between the newly developed tool and the on land body function scores such as Modified Bartel Index (MBI) and Medical Research Council (MRC) sum score ...

Introduction. Occupational therapists are concerned with enabling people to perform the daily life tasks they need, want, or are expected to perform for fullest possible integration into community living and participation in society. Children with mild disabilities have problems performing personal and instrumental activities of daily living (ADL) tasks at home or school, and that can limit their full integration and participation in their homes and school lives. There is a need, therefore, to identify their specific problems with ADL task performance so as to be able to develop effective interventions. Not only, there is a need for evidence related to effectiveness of occupational therapy interventions for children with mild disabilities, but also a need for valid occupational-therapy-specific evaluation tools for use with children.. Purpose. The purpose of this thesis was to contribute evidence to support the valid use of the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) with children, ...
Knee range of motion (ROM) is one of the most important outcome in understanding the effective progression in rehabilitation process after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Early recovery of ROM not only has not negative effects as increasing effusion, emarthrosis, periarticular soft tissue edema and swelling but also can decrease morbidity of major intraarticular ligamentous procedures1 and allow the patient to a faster return to daily life activities. During the rehabilitation process patients are asked to achieve precise degrees of flexion and extension depending on the rehabilitation phase, moreover certain degrees of ROM are also required to progress in rehabilitation exercises. ROM is also very important in athletes rehabilitation, indeed obtaining full ROM is considered a fundamental condition for return to sport. Nowadays the normal procedure for physiotherapist is to use a standard goniometer for measuring knee flexion and extension on patient in supine position. There is ...
