The effect of walking aids on exercise capacity and oxygenation in elderly patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (1/212)

BACKGROUND: high walking frames may improve exercise capacity in young patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We have assessed the effect of Zimmer, rollator and gutter frames on 6-min walking distance and on arterial oxygenation during exercise in elderly patients with COPD. METHODS: 27 out-patients (15 men) aged 70-82 (mean 75) years were recruited. Exclusions comprised: COPD exacerbation or oral steroid use within 6 weeks, confusional state, participation in a pulmonary rehabilitation programme and exercise limitation by other diseases. Subjects completed 6-min walk tests unaided and with the three frames on four separate days in random order 30 min after nebulized salbutamol (5 mg) and ipratropium (0.5 mg) and were accompanied by an investigator blinded to results of all other walk tests undertaken. Oxygen saturation (SaO2) was monitored by finger probe during exercise. Grouped t-tests were used to compare distances and reductions in SaO2. RESULTS: Unaided, the mean (SEM) 6-min walk distance was 210 (16) m and fall in oxygen saturation was 6.0 (1.1)%. Use of a rollator frame did not significantly affect either of these values. Using the Zimmer frame reduced the mean distance to 165 (13) m (t=5.2, P < 0.001 vs unaided walk) with an SaO2 fall similar to that recorded during the unaided walk. Using the gutter frame increased the mean distance to 234 (150) m (t=3. 1, P=0.004 vs unaided walk) and reduced the fall in SaO2 to 3.7 (0.8)% (t=2.3, P=0.03 vs unaided walk). CONCLUSIONS: gutter frames improve exercise capacity and SaO2 during exercise in elderly COPD patients who remain symptomatic on optimal therapy, whereas unwheeled Zimmer frames have a deleterious effect in such patients.  (+info)

Comparison of two self-help smoking cessation booklets. (2/212)

OBJECTIVE: To compare two self-help smoking cessation booklets distributed to callers to a Quitline telephone service in Queensland (Australia). DESIGN: Callers were randomised to receive either a structured 14-day quit programme (Time to quit) or another booklet and described four broad stages of quitting (Can quit). Approximately one month later, these callers were interviewed by telephone. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Self-reported smoking status at one month and recent quit attempts together with process measures. RESULTS: Altogether, 521 callers (78.3%) were interviewed. They were heavier smokers when compared with all Queensland smokers: on average they had smoked for more than 15 years, smoked nearly 25 cigarettes per day, and almost two-thirds had attempted to quit smoking in the past year. In each group, significant proportions either did not begin to use the booklet (50.5-56.0%), or did not complete its use (77.4-82.3%). There were no differences in the self-reported quit rates at one month (17.0% vs 16.1%; p = 0.93). In an ordinal regression modelling procedure involving age, sex, number of recent quit attempts, number of cigarettes smoked per day, smoking status of partner, number of five closest friends who smoke, education, and booklet received, only the number of cigarettes smoked per day was significantly related to smoking status at one month. CONCLUSIONS: Callers to telephone Quit-line services are typically heavier smokers than the general smoking population, and simple strategies, such as self-help booklets, appear to achieve relatively high success. Nevertheless, there is potential to improve the effectiveness of these materials by making a range of materials available and encouraging callers to make a serious attempt to quit smoking.  (+info)

How well do we care for patients with end stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)? A comparison of palliative care and quality of life in COPD and lung cancer. (3/212)

BACKGROUND: Patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have a poor quality of life and limited life expectancy. This study examined whether these patients were relatively disadvantaged in terms of medical and social care compared with a group with inoperable lung cancer. METHODS: An open two group comparison was made of 50 patients with severe COPD (forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV(1)) <0.75 l and at least one admission for hypercapnic respiratory failure) and 50 patients with unresectable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A multi-method design was used involving standardised quality of life tools, semi-structured interviews, and review of documentation. RESULTS: The patients with COPD had significantly worse activities of daily living and physical, social, and emotional functioning than the patients with NSCLC (p<0.05). The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) scores suggested that 90% of patients with COPD suffered clinically relevant anxiety or depression compared with 52% of patients with NSCLC. Patients were generally satisfied with the medical care received, but only 4% in each group were formally assessed or treated for mental health problems. With regard to social support, the main difference between the groups was that, while 30% of patients with NSCLC received help from specialist palliative care services, none of the patients with COPD had access to a similar system of specialist care. Finally, patients in both groups reported a lack of information from professionals regarding diagnosis, prognosis and social support, although patients' information needs were disparate and often conflicting. CONCLUSION: This study suggests that patients with end stage COPD have significantly impaired quality of life and emotional well being which may not be as well met as those of patients with lung cancer, nor do they receive holistic care appropriate to their needs.  (+info)

HFs/ergonomics of assistive technology. (4/212)

An assistive device is designed to accommodate the special needs of disability that can help people with physical, mental or cognitive challenges go through their day-to-day activities with less difficulty. An assistive device usually provide alternatives to functional limitations imposed by the client's disorder, and thereby minimising rehabilitation costs. It is therefore important to know about how assistive technology will function in all the possible aspects of such disabilities and impairements. When designing a technical device, particularly in conjunction with the target user group, ergonomic issues are therefore important to find out the extent to which an assistive device is convenient or not, and to check the quality performance of assistive technology. Since the question of the match or mismatch of an assistive device and a disabled person requires much attention, it is therefore suggested that paying attention on how an assistive device be ergonomically designed and developed is important. Ergonomic applications are to be applied for increasing motivation of prospective customers through innovative performance of AT. The authors believe that there are opportunities in ergonomic applications to manufacture an assistive device as unique, cost saving, and allows less exertation and reduces energy consumption when it is used. Hence this paper highlights human factors and/or ergonomics consideration in the process of design and development of assistive devices synchronising with gerontechnological research and development aiming to emphasise user's requirement.  (+info)

This final rule parallels the 1996 final rule for aircraft with a seating capacity of 19 through 30 passengers  (+info)

Effects of a standing aid on loads on low back and legs during dishwashing. (6/212)

In order to prevent low back pain during dishwashing, we developed a standing aid for supporting the forward bending posture, and then evaluated the effects of the standing aid on decreasing load on the low back and legs. Eight female volunteers were asked to wash plates for 60 minutes in each of three working postures: (a) without the standing aid, (b) with the standing aid under the thighs, and (c) with the standing aid under the shins. The following were measured: electromyogram (EMG), electrocardiogram (ECG), the force applied to the standing aid, the ground reaction force, the bending angle of the trunk, the bending angle of the knee, and local discomfort in body regions. While using the standing aid under the shins, the muscle load decreased in the low back and legs. While using the standing aid under the thighs, the muscle loads decreased in the low back but increased in the legs. It was suggested that the standing aid under the shins was more effective in decreasing the load on the low back and legs than the standing aid under the thighs.  (+info)

Individually fitted sports shoes for overuse injuries among newspaper carriers. (7/212)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of new, individually fitted sports shoes against overuse injuries to the lower limb among newspaper carriers. METHODS: Patients (N = 176) with lower-limb overuse injuries were randomly assigned to use new, individually adjusted footwear with good shock absorbing properties (test group = 86) or the subjects' own, used footwear (control group = 90). The main outcome measurements were lower-limb pain intensity during walking, as rated on a visual analogue scale (0-100), number of painful days, subjective assessment of global improvement, foot fatigue, number of hyperkeratotic skin lesions and diagnosed overuse injuries, and costs of foot care as compared between the treatment groups. RESULTS: At the 6-month follow-up there was a difference in favor of the test group with respect to lower-limb pain intensity and number of painful days, when compared with the control group. At 1 year, 53% and 33% of the test and control groups, respectively, thought they were better than at the time of the baseline examination (number needed to treat being 5 between the test and control groups). The test subjects had less foot fatigue and fewer hyperkeratotic skin lesions. There was no difference in the number of diagnosed overuse injuries between the groups. During the year of follow-up, the all-inclusive mean costs of foot care were USD 70 and USD 158 in the test and control groups, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Individually adjusted shock-absorbing shoes offer slight health benefits for lower-limb overuse injuries. Proper shoes may decrease the need to use health care resources.  (+info)

The effects of a contoured foam seat on postural alignment and upper-extremity function in infants with neuromotor impairments. (8/212)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Physical therapists and occupational therapists frequently use adaptive seating devices to improve stability in sitting for children with neuromotor impairments. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a contoured foam seat (CFS) on postural alignment and on the ability of infants with neuromotor impairments to engage with toys. Parental perceptions regarding the use and effects of the CFS also were assessed via semistructured interviews. SUBJECTS: Subjects were 4 infants, ages 9 to 18 months, who were unable to sit independently. METHOD: A time-series, alternating-treatments design was used, with data collected under 3 conditions: (1) a regular highchair, (2) a regular highchair with a thin foam liner, and (3) a CFS used as an insert in a regular highchair. The primary dependent measures were postural alignment and engagement with toys. Engagement with toys was defined as percentage of intervals with 2 hands on a toy and percentage of intervals with no hands on a highchair tray and 1 or 2 hands on a toy. RESULTS: Results showed a sustained effect of the CFS on improving postural alignment for all subjects. Effects of the CFS on increasing the number of intervals of bimanual play were not demonstrated for any subjects, although some improvement in the infant's ability to free the arms from support was observed for 2 subjects. Mothers reported acceptability of the CFS for everyday use and described benefits for themselves and their infants. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: The results support the use of a CFS for improving postural alignment. Future research on adaptive seating should focus on interventions and outcomes that help children participate in functional activities relevant to them and their families.  (+info)

Computer Access Kit provides access to technology for people with disabilities. These assistive technology devices are designed to make computer use easier for people with physical disabilities.
What are assistive devices? And who needs them?. Assistive devices help people carry out their daily activities more easily and safely. They are used primarily by persons with disabilities, the elderly, or patients who have difficulty taking care of themselves due to illness or injury. Examples include wheelchairs, walking aids, and electric beds. Such devices can alleviate the effects of disabilities and make a caregivers job easier.. An assistive device is easy to obtain if one is staying in a medical or nursing facility, but what about those who need such equipment after being discharged from such a facility? An oxygen concentrator or electric bed can cost tens of thousands of Taiwanese dollars (one U.S. dollar is about 30 Taiwanese dollars). A wheelchair is not cheap either. Taking care of seriously ill family members is already emotionally and physically demanding enough-the added financial burden from having to purchase assistive equipment just contributes to the stress of family members, ...

Knowing when to disclose to potential employers your disability and need for assistive technologies can be tricky. AAASs Stern recommends that scientists on the job market present their technology needs early in the hiring process -- not in the initial application, perhaps, but before arriving for an interview. Describe your needs tactfully but matter-of-factly. You wouldnt say, Would you get this software for me? You would say, This is the software that I use, and this is why I use it. . Once a potential employer knows about your disability, be prepared to answer the question that prospective employers are likely wondering about, even if they know enough not to ask: How can you do this job?. Summers-Gates favors directness. Ive said, I bet youre wondering how I do the following [tasks], she says. It brings the level of anxiety down in the room and opens the channels of communication.

Federal law defines assistive technology as ...any item, piece of equipment or product system, whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of children with disabilities. In the school setting, assistive technology includes specialized devices and software for learning and for addressing students educational needs, as defined by their IEP goals: accessing the curriculum, verbal and written communication, computer access, and environmental control. Many students, for example, might benefit from technology such as a laptop. However, a laptop would be considered assistive technology only if it enabled the student to access specific software (across multiple settings) which addressed a particular educational need/goal on the IEP. * ...

Blythedale Childrens Hospital has been a standout in special-needs healthcare and development since opening its doors in 1891. Now, with the launch of their Assistive Technology Program, the Valhalla institution is giving children some new and better technology, to help them integrate more effectively and live more independently than ever. According to Julie Knitter, the director of occupational therapy and assistive technology, the program is specialized to each childs needs and disability in order to help them reach their goals more fluidly.. It allows each child to be independent and move through their world while communicating with family, friends, and educators, Knitter says. They can engage in interactions with user technology, like cellphones or computers, to live more independent and fulfilling lives..

The intent of this Success Criterion is to ensure that Assistive Technologies (AT) can gather information about, activate(or set) and keep up to date on the status of user interface controls in the content. When standard controls from accessible technologies are used, this process is straightforward. If the user interface elements are used according to specification the conditions of this provision will be met. (See examples of Success Criterion 4.1.2 below) If custom controls are created, however, or interface elements are programmed (in code or script) to have a different role and/or function than usual, then additional measures need to be taken to ensure that the controls provide important information to assistive technologies and allow themselves to be controlled by assistive technologies. A particularly important state of a user interface control is whether or not it has focus. The focus state of a control can be programmatically determined, and notifications about change of focus are sent ...
This describes a failure condition for text alternatives on images. If there is no alt attribute, then assistive technologies are not able to identify the image or to convey its purpose to the user.. Some Assistive Technology might attempt to compensate for the missing alt text by reading the file name of the image. But it is insufficient to rely simply on the file name for many reasons. For example, file names may not be descriptive (e.g., images/nav01.gif), and technology specifications do not require descriptive file names. Some assistive technology may not read the file name if alt text is absent. ...
