Physical therapy in Huntington’s disease–toward objective assessments?
Background and Purpose: Physical therapy is recommended for the treatment of Huntington’s disease, but reliable studies investigating its efficacy are almost non-existent. This may in part be due to the lack of suitable outcome measures. Therefore, we investigated the applicability of novel quantitative and objective assessments of motor dysfunction in the evaluation of physical therapy […]
Anti-dementia drugs and changes in gait: a pre-post quasi-experimental pilot study
Background: Anti-dementia drugs may improve gait performance. No comparison between acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (CEIs) and memantine-related changes in gait variability has been reported. The objectives of this study were to 1) quantify and compare the mean values and coefficients of variation (CoV) of stride time in demented patients with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD) before […]
Continuous dopaminergic stimulation by Duodopa in advanced Parkinson’s disease: Efficacy and safety
Introduction: When advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients experience motor complications (fluctuations and dyskinesias) despite standard oral treatment, two treatment options are available: deep brain stimulation and subcutaneous apomorphine infusion with respects of indications for each strategy. Continuous intraduodenal infusion of levodopa (Duodopa) via a gastrojejunal tube may be proposed at this stage of the disease […]
Nursing home resident outcomes from the Res-Care intervention
Objectives: To test the effectiveness of a restorative care (Res-Care) intervention on function, muscle strength, contractures, and quality of life of nursing home residents, with secondary aims focused on strengthening self-efficacy and outcome expectations.; Design: A randomized controlled repeated-measure design was used, and generalized estimating equations were used to evaluate status at baseline and 4 […]
