Ulnar nerve palsy due to axillary crutch. (1/48)

A young lady with residual polio, using axillary crutch since early childhood, presented with tingling, numbness and weakness in ulnar nerve distribution of five months duration. Ulnar motor conduction study revealed proximal conduction block near the axilla, at the point of pressure by the crutch while walking. Distal ulnar sensory conduction studies were normal but proximal ulnar sensory conduction studies showed absence of Erb's point potential. These findings suggested the presence of conduction block in sensory fibers as well. Proper use and change of axillary crutch resulted in clinical recovery and resolution of motor and sensory conduction block.  (+info)

Upper-limb pain in long-term poliomyelitis. (2/48)

BACKGROUND: Late functional deterioration is common in long-term poliomyelitis patients. While upper-limb pain in individual functional regions is common, its overall prevalence and pattern in long-term poliomyelitis is poorly documented. AIM: To assess the nature of upper-limb pain in these patients and examine its association with dependence on mobility aids (and therefore upper limb 'overuse'). DESIGN: Questionnaire-based survey of patients attending a specialist unit. METHODS: Questionnaires were sent to 139 patients with known long-term poliomyelitis (mean 49.8 years post polio), attending the Lane Fox Unit out-patient clinic at St Thomas' Hospital between January 1998 and December 1998. There were questions on the nature of the patient's acute illness, limb involvement at initial infection ('polio-affected' limbs), the site and onset of upper-limb pain, hand dominance, previous injuries and surgery, and the use of mobility aids. Limbs that had sustained an injury or undergone surgery, at or preceding onset of upper-limb pain, were excluded from analysis. RESULTS: Among 103 valid replies, the prevalence of upper limb pain was 64%. Mobility aids were used by 74%, and were associated with an increased risk of upper-limb pain, while 'polio-affected' limbs were at reduced risk. DISCUSSION: These data support 'overuse' due to greater mobility aid dependence as a cause of increasing upper-limb pain in long-term poliomyelitis.  (+info)

Hypertrophy of chronically unloaded muscle subjected to resistance exercise. (3/48)

In an effort to simulate the compromised function and atrophy of lower limb muscles experienced by astronauts after spaceflight, 21 men and women age 30-56 yr were subjected to unilateral lower limb unloading for 5 wk. Whereas 10 of these subjects performed unilateral knee extensor resistance exercise (ULRE) two or three times weekly, 11 subjects (UL) refrained from training. The exercise regimen consisted of four sets of seven maximal actions, using an apparatus that offers concentric and eccentric resistance by utilizing the inertia of rotating flywheel(s). Knee extensor muscle strength was measured before and after UL and ULRE, and knee extensor and ankle plantar flexor muscle volumes were determined by means of magnetic resonance imaging. Surface electromyographic activity measured after UL inferred increased muscle use to perform a given motor task. UL induced an 8.8% decrease (P < 0.05) in knee extensor muscle volume. After ULRE and as a result of only approximately 16 min of maximal contractile activity over the 5-wk course, muscle volume increased 7.7% (P < 0.05). Muscle strength decreased 24-32% (P < 0.05) in response to UL. Group ULRE showed maintained (P > 0.05) strength. Ankle plantar flexor muscle volume of the unloaded limb decreased (P < 0.05) in both groups (UL 10.5%; ULRE 11.1%). In neither group did the right weight-bearing limb show any change (P > 0.05) in muscle volume or strength. The results of this study provide evidence that resistance exercise not only may offset muscle atrophy but is in fact capable of promoting marked hypertrophy of chronically unloaded muscle.  (+info)

Comparison of the Easy Strutter Functional Orthosis System and axillary crutches during modified 3-point gait. (4/48)

The Easy Strutter Functional Orthosis System (ESFOS) was designed to improve assistive device ambulatory efficiency. This crossover design study compared the ESFOS to axillary crutches during modified 3-point gait. Thirty-eight subjects (40-65 years of age) at > 1 year after unilateral total knee or hip replacement participated in this study. Heart rate, mean peak palmar and plantar force magnitude, and onset timing were monitored during self-directed pace ambulation. Between trials, subjects responded to questions on perceived exertion, stability/security, and comfort. One-way analyses of variance were used to evaluate condition differences for ratio or interval data (p < or = 0.01). Statistically significant differences were noted for mean peak palmar forces (reduced 45% and delayed 31%), mean peak plantar force onsets (delayed 30%), and energy expenditure index (EEI) (reduced 25%). Wilcoxon signed rank tests were used to evaluate condition differences for ordinal data. Subjects preferred the ESFOS to axillary crutches for comfort and security/stability on flat surfaces and stairs (p < or = 0.001). Results suggest greater ambulatory gait efficiency during ESFOS use. Further study is indicated with other patient populations.  (+info)

Validity of the walking scale for spinal cord injury and other domains of function in a multicenter clinical trial. (5/48)

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate criterion (concurrent and predictive) and construct validity of the Walking Index for Spinal Cord Injury (WISCI) scale and other walking measures in the Spinal Cord Injury Locomotor Trial (SCILT). DESIGN: Prospective multicenter clinical trial of a walking intervention for patients with acute traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). PARTICIPANTS/ METHODS: Body weight-supported treadmill training was compared to overground mobility training in 146 patients with incomplete SCI (C4 to L3) enrolled within 8 weeks of onset and treated for 12 weeks. Primary outcome measures were the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), 50-foot walking speed (50FW-S), and 6-minute walking distance (6MW-D), tested 3, 6, and 12 months after entry. Secondary measures were the Lower Extremity Motor Score (LEMS), Berg Balance Scale (BBS), WISCI, and FIM locomotor score (LFIM), assessed at 6 centers by blinded observers. Data for the 2 arms were combined since no significant differences in outcomes had been found. RESULTS: Correlations with WISCI at 6 months were significant with BBS (r = .90), LEMS (r = .85), LFIM (r = .89), FIM (r = .77), 50FW-S (r = .85), and 6MW-D ( r = .79); similar correlations occurred at 3 and 12 months. Correlations of change scores from baseline WISCI were significant for change scores from baseline of LEMS/BBS/LFIM. Correlation of baseline LEMS and WISCI at 12 months were most significant (r = .73). The R(2) of baseline LEMS explained 57% of variability of WISCI levels at 3 months. CONCLUSION: Concurrent validity of the WISCI scale was supported by significant correlations with all measures at 3, 6, and 12 months. Correlation of change scores supports predictive validity. The LEMS at baseline was the best predictor of the WISCI score at 12 months and explained most of the variance, which supported both predictive and construct validity. The combination of the LEMS, BBS, WISCI, 50FW-S, and LFIM appears to encompass adequate descriptors for outcomes of walking trials for incomplete SCI.  (+info)

Upper extremity dynamics during Lofstrand crutch-assisted gait in children with myelomeningocele. (6/48)

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: We present a 3-dimensional biomechanical model of the upper extremities to characterize joint dynamics during 2 patterns of Lofstrand crutch-assisted gait in children with myelomeningocele. The upper extremity model incorporates recommendations by the International Society of Biomechanics. METHODS: A Vicon motion analysis system (14 cameras) captured the marker patterns. Instrumented crutches measured reaction forces. Five subjects with L3 or L4 level myelodysplasia (aged 9.8 +/- 1.6 years) were analyzed during reciprocal and swing-through Lofstrand crutch-assisted gait. RESULTS: The mean walking speed, cadence, and stride length were greatest during swing-through gait. Although the gait patterns had different morphologies, the thorax and elbows remained in flexion, the wrists remained in extension, and the shoulders demonstrated both flexion and extension throughout the gait cycles. Swing-through gait showed larger ranges of motion for all joints than reciprocal gait. Peak crutch forces were highest during swing-through gait. The model was effective in detecting significant differences in upper extremity joint dynamics between reciprocal and swing-through crutch-assisted gait in children with myelomeningocele. CONCLUSIONS: Results support continued testing. Future work should include clinical and functional assessment in a correlated study of dynamics and function. Knowledge from the study may be useful in treatment planning and intervention.  (+info)

The effect of walking with an assistive device and using a wheelchair on school performance in students with myelomeningocele. (7/48)

An alternating-condition, single-subject research design was used to examine the effect of ambulation on three measures of school performance in three students with myelomeningocele. The subjects, aged 9, 10, and 15 years, had a physiological cost index greater than 1.00 beats per meter when walking with crutches or a walker. Subjects propelled a wheelchair at school for 5 days, ambulated with crutches or a walker for 5 days, and propelled a wheelchair for an additional 5 days. Performance in reading fluency, visuomotor accuracy, and manual dexterity was assessed at the end of each school day. Results were graphed and analyzed using the two-standard-deviation band method. All subjects had significantly lower visuomotor accuracy scores during the assistive-device ambulation phase than during the wheelchair phases. Performance in manual dexterity during the assistive-device ambulation and wheelchair phases varied among the subjects. Reading fluency was not affected by method of mobility. The results suggest that the high energy cost of walking may have a negative effect on certain aspects of the subjects' school performance. [Franks CA, Palisano RJ, Darbee JC.

In this paper, crutch tips for axillary crutches made of ethylene-propylene rubbers are reported. Made of those kinds of rubbers, they have several advantages. That is, they can be added favorite colors in the produced process. They seldom melt and change colors. And they have no poisonous ingredients. The authors make two kinds of them for axillary crutches made of woods, because they are popularly used in Japanese hospitals now. The authors put the two new types through an endurance test. The test is continued for one hundred hours on condition that one hundred degree centigrade and two point five kilogram weight. Also, they put the old one made of a natural rubber through the same test. On comparison between the new ones and the old one, the formers are more enduring and less meltable than the latter.

Ptosis crutches (also known as eye crutches) are a non-surgical solution to Ptosis, also known as drooping eyelid syndrome. Affected eyes do not have the ability to open and close properly. In severe cases, a person is not able to open the affected eyelid. Ptosis eye crutches are tools installed to existing eyewear that support the affected eyelid, enabling the eyelid to stay open and allowing an individual to see. Crutches are used to keep an eyelid from drooping due to Ptosis. Individuals with Ptosis who are not candidates for reparable surgery or are looking for an alternative treatment, may consider Ptosis crutches. A Ptosis crutch is bar that is placed along the inside of an eyewire frame that supports the drooping eyelid. The crutch is positioned where the orbital fold would typically be without Ptosis. The crutch should create a fold above the eye, tucking the lid in and raising it above the pupil. The Ptosis crutch is designed around the shape and contour of the eye. It is typically made ...
If you ever break a bone in your leg or foot, have a surgical procedure on your lower limb or suffer a stroke, you may need to use crutches, a cane or a walker. In the beginning, everything you do may seem difficult, but with a few tips and some practice, you will gain confidence and learn to use your walking aid safely. Crutches If an injury or surgical procedure requires you to keep your weight off of your leg or foot, you may have to use crutches. The top of your crutches should reach to 1-1 1/2 inches below your armpits while you stand up straight. The handgrips of the crutches should be even with the top of your hip line. Your elbows should bend a bit when you use the handgrips. Hold the top of the crutches tightly to your sides, and use your hands to absorb the weight. Dont let the tops of the crutches press into your armpits. Walking: Lean forward slightly and put your crutches about one foot ahead of you. Begin your step as if you were going to use the injured foot or leg, but shift ...

Follow me closely: Metro Council member Eric Crafton wants to stop all of Metros bilingual efforts because he says that they are a crutch (his unproven assumption being that the people who rely on bilingual efforts do not require such assistance), but he wants to give himself and other private developers the crutch of not having to be burdened with Metro sidewalk fees (his unproven assumption being that developers like himself require such assistance). I guess crutches are okay when they help your own. Fellow Metro Council member Michael Craddock also wants to help immigrants break free of their "disadvantage." How paternal of him. I guess it is just not worthy to try to help people who do not yet have a firm grasp of English to pursue immunizations or to place emergency calls in, well, emergencies. Surely these big-hearted philanthropists are going to replace "bilingual crutches" with proposed funding bills for comprehensive, and thus expensive, new Metro-wide programs that aggressively teach ...

For most of his career, cameraman Angus Macfadyen enjoyed a fast-paced lifestyle, dashing off to exotic countries or war-torn locations to film. His life changed abruptly when a severe accident forced him into a plaster cast for four months. During that period Angus made an unusual decision: he decided to run a marathon - on crutches. Marathon officials gave him the green signal, and his grueling training regimen is underway. He s already traveled well over 400 miles on his crutches. Through his running, Angus hopes to raise funds for No More Landmines, a non-profit cause close to his heart.

One thing we have been noticing here is the amazing amount of people carrying around a single crutch. Most of them are older, and I wonder if there isnt some agressive government program to hand out crutches to the elderly. Then again, it is always the way with things you take notice of. After the first time, you become hyper aware of the existence of the thing, and tend to spot it more readily than before. Especially when outside of ones home environs, one looks for things that are definitive of the other culture or place. Still, there are very many indeed.. I took a little walk to the "other" side of the Ramblas today. (If you think about the Barrio Gotico as roughly heart shaped, and you are standing at the Plaça Catalunya facing towards the water, we are staying in the left ventricle.

Depends on the injury really, theres a really good chance of being accidentally knocked or tripped, I went over twice at t in the park just because of people not being aware of me, so if the knees still delicate it might not be a good idea.. Sorry to be a bit negative but I dont think Id do it, not if there was a likelihood of causing further injury. I think Id end up playing it so safe I might as well not be there. ...

For most people suffering lower leg, foot and ankle injuries, the answer is YES! iWALK2.0 is a great way to improve your qualify of life during your rehabilitation. That said, since every physique and every injury is unique, we recommend that you always consult with your health care professional before using the iWALK2.0.. The bottom line is that losing the use of a lower leg, foot, or ankle should not also mean losing the use of your hands and arms. The most obvious benefit of the iWalk leg crutch in comparison to conventional crutches, is that it is hands-free. Hands-free means that there is no interruption to your normal day-to-day routine. It may sound basic, but it is a freedom that conventional crutches or other crutch alternatives (such as knee scooters) cannot provide.. We are the best crutch alternative (no, we arent just bragging) because the iWALK 2.0 makes it possible to do things like walking the dog, cooking, making copies, opening a door - simple tasks that take on a whole new ...
A term that is also sometimes used to describe this situation is a slow oxidizer on crutches. In other words, the person is a slow oxidizer, but, in fact, toxic metals or other stress factors are propping up the oxidation rate - usually raising the sodium and potassium levels - the way crutches help keep a person standing up when they are weak or ill. As the crutches are removed with a nutritional balancing program, the oxidation rate may, on a retest, become even slower temporarily. This is like letting go of one s crutches as one s broken leg heals. At first, one may be a little shaky and weaker without the crutches, but this soon passes. ...

Students in Bioengineering 101 were tasked this past Spring with developing a low cost, practical crutch/scooter hybrid. The course is designed to engage the students by employing their burgeoning engineering talents to a real-world problem with direct applications in the field of bioengineering. For Dr. Jill Steinbach-Rankins, the challenge is in finding a good fit for her students that balances a usable product with a limited budget, the kind of real world constraints that engineers encounter on a regular basis.. "What were looking to do is improve their critical thinking capability. Each team has a total of $40 to $50 dollars. The end product cant be expensive. All of the products are under $40 to $50 dollars," says Steinbach-Rankins.. Part of Steinbach-Rankins project looks at where the technology will be involved. As such, students are encouraged to engineer their product using only material indigenous to the area that it will be employed. The idea is to create something reproducible to ...

by Darian Slayton Fleming. Over the years, I have discovered that more and more members have multiple disabilities including physical, psychiatric, intellectual and hearing loss. These additional disabilities are a natural part of life; they occur due to illnesses and accidents. Our military veterans have incurred multiple disabilities through their war action. Yet, my experience is that unless you are a spouse or family member, some of our peers who are blind seem unaware and intolerant of our needs to use mobility devices. I am writing specifically about the needs of those of us who have physical disabilities and use mobility devices such as walkers, wheelchairs, and scooters, and how people who are just blind can better understand and help us.. You may think we are unaware of how much space our devices take up and that we dont consider your needs to move freely without running into them. My experience is that those of us who use mobility devices are especially conscientious about looking for ...
Background: The optimal rehabilitation protocol after surgical repair of an Achilles tendon rupture has not been well defined. The objective of this randomized study was to compare the effect of early weight-bearing with that of non-weight-bearing on early postoperative recovery following repair of an acutely ruptured Achilles tendon. Methods: Between October 2003 and May 2006, 110 patients with a surgically repaired Achilles tendon rupture were enrolled from one of two major trauma-care tertiary hospitals. All patients were non-weight-bearing for the first two weeks postoperatively. At the two-week postoperative visit, patients were randomized to either weight-bearing or non-weight-bearing for an additional four weeks. Compliance was measured with a pressure sensor in the fixed-hinge ankle-foot orthosis given to each patient. Follow-up assessments were performed at six weeks, three months, and six months postoperatively. The primary outcome was health-related quality of life assessed with use ...
Osteochondral lesions of the ankle (Ankle OCD) is a condition in which there is a loss of blood supply to the bone that is covered by cartilage in the joint. Ankle OCD can cause pain and stiffness and is commonly the result of trauma to the ankle, such as severe sprains or small fractures. The talus is a large foot bone that forms part of the ankle joint. The top of the talus is covered by articular cartilage, which helps to reduce friction while the bone of the ankles slide against each other. When a chip-type fracture to the talus occurs, oftentimes due to a severe ankle sprain, the fragment may displace. Displacement prevents blood vessels from supplying blood to the fragment, which decreases the likelihood of healing. Your physician can diagnose ankle OCD through a physical examination and with the help of diagnostic imaging, such as X-ray, CT scan, and MRI.. Nonsurgical treatment options include the use of crutches, a splint, or a cast. Rest and avoiding heavy use of the ankle joint is ...

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: The compensatory mechanisms of horses with weightbearing hindlimb lameness are still not fully understood. HYPOTHESIS: That weightbearing, unilateral hindlimb lameness would not only alter stride characteristics to diminish structural stress in the affected limb but also induce compensatory load adjustments in the other supporting limbs. OBJECTIVE: To document the load and time shifting mechanisms of horses with unilateral weightbearing hindlimb lameness. METHODS: Reversible lameness was induced in 8 clinically sound horses by applying a solar pressure model. Three degrees of lameness (subtle, mild and moderate) were induced and compared with the nonlame (sound) control measurement. Vertical ground reaction forces were recorded for all 4 limbs simultaneously on an instrumented treadmill. RESULTS: Compared to the sound situation, moderate hindlimb hoof lameness induced a decrease in stride duration (-3.3%) and stride impulse (-3.1%). Diagonal impulse decreased ...
