  • Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Interventions and Outcomes for a Person With Quadrilateral Amputation. [Journal Article]
  • PTPhys Ther 2016 Sep 15
  • Kimble SL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the high energy levels necessary to ambulate with bilateral prosthetic limbs, the patient achieved 86% of the predicted distance for her age and sex in the 6MWT. In addition, she more than doubled her FIM motor score from inpatient acute rehabilitation admission to discharge. Closed-chain exercise and a focused approach to this patient's preprosthetic training were part of her success in becoming a community ambulator.
  • Reliability of Performance-Based Clinical Measurements to Assess Shoulder Girdle Kinematics and Positioning: Systematic Review. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: All studies had significant limitations, including incongruence between test description and actual reported measurements and a lack of reporting on minimal important change. In general, the methodological quality of the selected studies was fair to poor.High-quality evidence indicates that measurements obtained with the Modified Scapular Assistance Test are not reliable for clinical use. Sound recommendations for the use of other tests could not be made due to inadequate evidence. Across studies, diversity in description, performance, and interpretation of similar tests was present, and different criteria were used to establish similar diagnoses, mostly without taking into account a clinically meaningful context. Consequently, these tests lack face validity, which hampers their clinical use. Further research on validity and how to integrate a clinically meaningful context of movement into clinical tests is warranted.
