  1. 1. Neck pain in women : effect of tailored treatment and impact of work environment

    Author : Åsa Svedmark; Martin Björklund; Charlotte Häger; Jens Wahlström; Ottar Vasseljen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neck pain; neck disability; treatment; work exposure; stress; physiotherapy; fysioterapi;

    Abstract : Introduction: Musculoskeletal pain is a common problem in the working population. In Sweden, 40% of women and 30% of men report suffering from neck and shoulder pain weekly. The underlying cause for neck pain is often not known and the treatment is commonly guided by the individual’s symptoms. READ MORE

  2. 2. The relevance and assessment of limb muscle function in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

    Author : Erik Frykholm; André Nyberg; Ann Sörlin; Per Stål; Thomas Sandström; Lars Nyberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; COPD; lower and upper limb activities; quadriceps function; reliability; association; physiotherapy; fysioterapi;

    Abstract : Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease that is characterised by persistent respiratory symptoms and airflow limitation. Consequences beyond the airways and lungs are common, and include limb muscle dysfunction. READ MORE

  3. 3. Movement strategies and dynamic knee control after anterior cruciate ligament injury : a three-dimensional biomechanical analysis

    Author : Jonas L. Markström; Charlotte K. Häger; Eva Tengman; Helena Grip; Lina Schelin; Jim Richards; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior cruciate ligament; biomechanics; kinematics; kinetics; finite helical axis; injury prevention; sports; reliability; agreement; one-leg hops; functional data analysis; physiotherapy; fysioterapi;

    Abstract : Background: Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is common and mainly occurs in non-contact situations in sports, often due to momentarily poor movement control. Assessment of movement quality during sport-like tasks iscrucial to understand how to decrease the high risk of reinjury for ACL-injured persons, but also how to prevent primary injury. READ MORE

  4. 4. Digital fall prevention for older adults : Feasibility of a self-managed exercise application and development of a smartphone self-test for balance and leg strength

    Author : Linda Månsson; Marlene Sandlund; Erik Rosendahl; Maria Wiklund; Fredrik Öhberg; Rolf Moe-Nilssen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Accidental falls; Aged; Community-based participatory research; eHealth; Falls prevention; mHealth; Self-assessment; Self-management; physiotherapy; fysioterapi; sjukgymnastik; Physiotherapy;

    Abstract : As the numbers of older adults grow, fall prevention is vital to reduce health care needs due to falls and to increase quality of life. Balance and strength exercises have been found to be effective in fall prevention, however, long-term adherence is often poor. READ MORE

  5. 5. “Taking the next step” : whole-body biomechanical gait analysis, and user-perspectives on robotic-assisted gait training post-stroke

    Author : Heidi Nedergård; Charlotte Häger; Marlene Sandlund; Susanne Palmcrantz; Erika Franzén; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; robotic-assisted; electro-mechanical; gait training; gait analysis; user-perspectives; kinematics; physiotherapy; fysioterapi;

    Abstract : Background: Stroke, and its subsequent motor function impairments may result in limited gait ability characterised by compensatory movement patterns that include deviations and asymmetries. How these movement patterns should be evaluated and quantified in order to be monitored and treated in the long term is not yet standardised. READ MORE
