In this fixed cohort of automotive manufacturing workers, the prevalence of upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders was similar at follow up to that found in the baseline survey of the same population. MSD cases were defined both on the basis of symptoms uniquely and also by the combination of symptoms plus physical examination findings. Although disorders by symptoms alone were slightly more frequent than disorders confirmed by physical examination, the two case types had quite similar risk factors. The cumulative incidence of new disorders was strongly associated with previously assessed level of exposure to combined ergonomic stressors affecting the upper extremity. Nearly 60% of subjects who had disorders at baseline were still (or again) cases in the second survey. We did not identify consistent predictors of persistence.. The incidence results generally confirmed our previous cross sectional findings. "Length biased sampling" means that a cross sectional study necessarily identifies ...

Preventing UEMSD injury and disability is challenging. OHS practitioners are charged with designing and implementing solutions. Evidence-based approaches should help identify and implement more effective solutions. Optimal evidence-based practice employs the knowledge and experience of practitioners along with the most up-to-date evidence from the scientific literature in the context of the client (patient, worker, etc) to determine prevention solutions.113. It can be challenging for busy OHS practitioners to find and read the latest research on any given topic. This challenge is compounded by the increase in the number of OHS publications year to year. Using the same literature search strategy as the earlier review,23 we found over 9900 references in a 5-year period (2008-2013) as compared with approximately 15 400 in a much longer period (mid-1960s-2008). We did find a higher proportion of relevant high-quality studies (50% vs 39%) in the past 5 years as compared with the original ...

INTRODUCTION Stroke is a leading cause of disability of the adult population worldwide. Successful recovery of upper limb motor function occurs only in 20% of cases [1]. Upper limb motor recovery is a most challenging goal, due to lack of patients motivation, training intensity and pathological synergy which is very difficult to correct using traditional…
Conclusions Our results confirmed the surgery on upper extremity of RA improved the patients reported function, as well as the disease activity. There were surgical site-specific pattern of improvement of DASH and Hand20, such as that gross movement and pain significantly improved in larger joints, and dexterity movement and cosmetic factor in smaller joints. Postoperative upper extremity function was tend to improve, but more significantly in non-bDMARDs group, probably because the patients might had relatively better baseline function in the bDMARDs group. Understanding of site-specific patterns of improvement after surgery might be useful to achieve the functional remission, and may contribute to decision making of surgical indication, priority of surgical site on upper extremity, and prospection of surgical outcome. ...
The confusion between the terms open kinetic chain and closed kinetic chain becomes even greater with application to the upper extremity. Upper extremity function is very difficult to define, due to the numerous shoulder positions and the great velocities with which the shoulder can move. Classifying exercises for rehabilitation of the upper extremity is very difficult due to the complexity of the joint. Many definitions and classification systems have been proposed; however, none of these entirely encompass rehabilitation of the upper extremity. Using previous classifications we have developed a Functional Classification System that is designed to serve as a template for upper extremity rehabilitation. This system has been designed to restore functional shoulder stability, which is dependent upon proper scapulothoracic and glenohumeral stability, and humeral control; all of these are in part mediated by neuromuscular mechanisms. The objective of our new Functional Classification System is to ...
Background: Few studies have investigated motor function in the upper extremity in both ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Different recovery patterns in upper extremity motor function have clinically been described, but there is a lack of research. Purpose: To investigate differences in recovery of upper extremity motor function after ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke during the first year after a stroke. Methods: From the Stroke Arm Longitudinal Study at the Gothenburg University study, 45 people fulfilled eight assessment occasions during twelve months after a first ever stroke. People who had first ever stroke and reduced upper extremity function at day three post stroke were included in the study. Upper extremity motor function was investigated with the Fugl-Meyer Assessment for Upper Extremity (FMA-UE) at day 3, day 10, at 3, 4 and 6 weeks and at 3, 6 and 12 months. Descriptive statistics was used to present data, to compare differences between ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, subgroup analyses ...
The purpose of this study is to estimate the efficacy of Contralataterally Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation (CCFES) in reducing upper extremity impairment and activity limitation in chronic upper extremity hemiplegia. CCFES is a rehabilitation intervention in which neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is applied to the finger and thumb extensor muscles of the paretic upper limb to open the hand. The stroke survivor controls the stimulation intensity, and consequent degree of hand opening, by modulating the degree of opening of the contralateral unimpaired hand, which is detected by an instrumented glove. Thus, volitional opening of the unaffected hand produces stimulated opening of the affected hand. The stimulation paradigm is used to assist the stroke survivor in practicing functional tasks with their affected hand. We will conduct a randomized controlled trial in which chronic stroke survivors (>6 months post-stroke) will be randomly assigned to receive 12 weeks of CCFES or ...

A mirror therapy program is an effective intervention for upper-limb motor recovery and motor function improvement in patients with acute stroke, say authors of an article published in American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. For this study, 26 patients who had an acute stroke within 6 months of study commencement were assigned to the experimental group (n = 13) or the control group (n = 13). Both experimental and control group patients participated in a standard rehabilitation program, but only the experimental group members participated in mirror therapy program for 25 minutes twice a day, 5 times a week, for 4 weeks. Researchers used the Fugl-Meyer Assessment, Brunnstrom motor recovery stage, and Manual Function Test to assess changes in upper-limb motor recovery and motor function after intervention.. In upper-limb motor recovery, the scores of Fugl-Meyer Assessment (by shoulder/elbow/forearm items, 9.54 vs 4.61; wrist items, 2.76 vs 1.07; hand items, 4.43 vs 1.46, ...

The long-term objective is to conduct comparative efficacy research to identify the possible mechanisms and the relative effectiveness of existing rehabilitation approaches of fully defined-, evidence-based, and theory-grounded approaches. This proposed project aims to (1) compare the effects of dose-matched unilateral vs bilateral vs unilateral combined with bilateral upper limb rehabilitation based on task-related practice; (2) compare the effects of unilateral vs bilateral training based on robot-assisted devices; and (3) study the predictors of treatment outcomes and clinimetric properties of the biomechanical measures. The outcome measures will span the spectrum of health-related functioning, including motor and neural control, movement performance, daily functions, and quality of life. Motor and neural control mechanisms involving movement strategies, muscle and force output, and brain reorganization will be evaluated using kinematic, electromyographic (EMG), and kinetic analyses, and also ...

It is the purpose of this article to identify and review criteria that rehabilitation technology should meet in order to offer arm-hand training to stroke patients, based on recent principles of motor learning. A literature search was conducted in PubMed, MEDLINE, CINAHL, and EMBASE (1997-2007). One hundred and eighty seven scientific papers/book references were identified as being relevant. Rehabilitation approaches for upper limb training after stroke show to have shifted in the last decade from being analytical towards being focussed on environmentally contextual skill training (task-oriented training). Training programmes for enhancing motor skills use patient and goal-tailored exercise schedules and individual feedback on exercise performance. Therapist criteria for upper limb rehabilitation technology are suggested which are used to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a number of current technological systems. This review shows that technology for supporting upper limb training after stroke

Arterial disorders of the upper extremity are much less common than those of the lower extremity, but when they result in symptoms of acute or chronic ischemia, surgical or endovascular techniques for upper extremity revascularization may be needed.
This prospective study examined upper extremity (UE) assessment results in a pediatric community setting and evaluated whether significant kinematic (motion) and functional changes would be observed after rehabilitative intervention. Children with physical impairments (n = 34) receiving 3 weeks of intensive therapy at a health camp completed pre-/postintervention assessments. The assessments included both an UE motion analysis system and the Shriners Hospital for Children Upper Extremity Evaluation (SHUEE). Chart review provided demographic and health background information. Therapeutic intervention was documented and included descriptive functional assessments. Linear regression was used to examine changes after 3 weeks of intensive therapy. There were significant improvements in all three components of the SHUEE for the affected UE. Ranges of motion increased across eight of 10 tasks measured by motion analysis (p | 0.01). We conclude that intensive therapy in a community setting improves UE

The advancement of endovascular therapy has led to minimally invasive solutions to increasingly complex aortic pathology, including thoracoabdominal aneurysms and those involving the visceral segment. Upper extremity access is beneficial in a variety of these complex interventions, and may be absolutely required for certain procedures such as placement of parallel chimney grafts. Traditionally, the brachial artery has been the primary access site on the arm, using either a percutaneous or open approach. Brachial access is safe and effective, and remains suitable for the majority of clinical situations. More recently though, descriptions of axillary and radial access have emerged and may provide a useful alternative in specific cases. These options should be viewed as complementary rather than competitive, and facility with all three techniques is desirable. Here, we describe in detail the various options for upper extremity access during complex aortic aneurysm repair and their relative ...
