    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; haptics; Neglect; Outcome Measures; Paresis; Rehabilitation; Stroke; Virtual Reality;

    Abstract : Aims: The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the effects of Virtual Reality technology and haptics for stroke rehabilitation. Aims were to assess motor training in the so called chronic phase after stroke and to evaluate whether any improvement detected in the VR environment is reflected in daily life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gait strategy in myelomeningocele : Movements, mechanics and methods

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Elena M Gutierrez; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Myelomeningocele; spina bifida; gait analysis; movement analysis; muscle paresis; compensatory movements; orthoses; centre of mass.;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to describe the movement patterns employed in selfambulatory children with a range of muscle paresis due to nervous tissue damage resulting from myelomeningocele, a common congenital malformation of the spinal column resulting in sensory and motor paresis. Using 3D movement analysis, the upper and lower body kinematics, movement of the center of mass, and joint moments, powers, and work done during gait in 32 children with lumbo-sacral myelomeningocele were analyzed and divided into 5 groups based on the severity of paresis.

  5. 5. Associations between body functions, activities and health-related quality of life from onset until 18 months after stroke

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

    Author : Anna-Karin Welmer; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hand function; health-related quality of life; mobility limitation; muscle spasticity; paresis; perceptual disorders; self-care; somatosensory disorders; stroke; synergy;

    Abstract : Introduction and aims: In planning rehabilitation services for patients with stroke, it is important to know the frequency of the impairments and activity limitations presented by the patients and also how each body function and activity is associated with other body functions and activities, as well as the patients health-related quality of life (HRQL) at different time-points after stroke. The overall aims of the thesis were to describe body functions, activities and HRQL in patients with stroke and to analyse the associations between those variables, in the first week and at three and 18 months after stroke onset.
