  5. 5. Activities with balance limitations among patients with perpheral arthritis : Description and assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society

    Author : Anne Marie Norén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peripheral arthritis; Activities; Balance; Assessments; Questionnaire;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Patients with peripheral arthritis (PA) have several impairments that can influence balance and be risk factors for falls and fear of falling. Since disability varies among these patients, we need to know what tests are applicable for those with differing degrees of activity limitation. READ MORE
