The Head Shake Sensory Organization Test (Hs-Sot): Normative Data And Correlation With Dynamic Visual Acuity Testing, Andrea E. Cripps, Scott C. Livingston Dec 2017

The Head Shake Sensory Organization Test (Hs-Sot): Normative Data And Correlation With Dynamic Visual Acuity Testing, Andrea E. Cripps, Scott C. Livingston

Journal of Sports Medicine and Allied Health Sciences: Official Journal of the Ohio Athletic Trainers Association

Background: Among healthy (asymptomatic) subjects and patients, the relationship between performance on the Head Shake Sensory Organization Test (HS-SOT) and performance on the Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) testing has not been reported. The purpose of this study was to establish normative data for the HS-SOT and compare performance on the HS-SOT and the DVA test. Hypothesis: A strong positive correlation would exist between the DVA and the HS-SOT. Study Design: A cross-sectional design was used. Level of Evidence: Level 3. Methods: Sixty asymptomatic subjects (34 females, 26 males, ages 20 to 26 years, 23.7±1.6) participated. Each subject ...

Reliability And Validity Of The Star Excursion Balance Test For Patients With Chronic Patellar Instability, Andrew D. Firth Aug 2016

Reliability And Validity Of The Star Excursion Balance Test For Patients With Chronic Patellar Instability, Andrew D. Firth

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) is an eight-direction, maximal-reach balance test whose measurement properties are unknown in participants with chronic patellar instability. We designed an observational study with repeated measures to evaluate the test-retest reliability, cross-sectional and longitudinal construct validity, sensitivity to change and responsiveness of the SEBT in this population. Fifteen patients completed the SEBT and reported outcomes at baseline and two weeks and four patients completed testing three months later at the Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic.

Intra-class correlation coefficients (ICC) for the SEBT were fair to good, ranging from 0.66-0.84. The SEBT demonstrates good ...


Exploring Oculomotor Trends In Collegiate Athletes, Brett Whorley, Julie A. Honaker Apr 2016

Exploring Oculomotor Trends In Collegiate Athletes, Brett Whorley, Julie A. Honaker

UCARE Research Products

Collaborative efforts to improve athlete safety without significantly hindering the rules of the games aim to develop a novel system to better measure and diagnose concussions. Provided that common signs of concussions include blurred vision, distant gaze, and dizziness, the Dizziness and Balance Disorders Lab at UNL believes that the simple oculomotor exam studied in this project may be applied to this procedure. Within the broader goal to better understand the causes, signs, symptoms, and prognosis of concussions, researchers desired to further investigate the results of this oculomotor test. The aim was to identify and interpret correlations between collegiate athlete ...


Exergaming As A Viable Therapeutic Tool To Improve Static And Dynamic Balance Among Older Adults And People With Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Dale M. Harris, Timo Rantalainen, Makii Muthalib, Liam G. Johnson, Wei-Peng Teo Jan 2015

Exergaming As A Viable Therapeutic Tool To Improve Static And Dynamic Balance Among Older Adults And People With Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Dale M. Harris, Timo Rantalainen, Makii Muthalib, Liam G. Johnson, Wei-Peng Teo

Faculty of Health Sciences Publications

The use of virtual reality games ( known as “exergaming” ) as a neurorehabilitation tool is gaining interest. Therefore, we aim to collate evidence for the effects of exergaming on the balance and postural control of older adults and people with idiopathic Parkinson’s disease ( IPD ). Six electronic databases were searched, from inception to April 2015, to identify relevant studies. Standardized mean differences ( SMDs ) and 95% confidence intervals ( CI ) were used to calculate effect sizes between experimental and control groups. I2 statistics were used to determine levels of heterogeneity. 325 older adults and 56 people with IPD who were assessed across 11 ...


Lower Limb Progressive Resistance Training Improves Leg Strength But Not Gait Speed Or Balance In Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Alex Tillman Tillman, Makii Muthalib, Ashlee M. Hendy, Liam G. Johnson, Timo Rantalainen, Dawson J. Kidgell, Peter G. Enticott, Wei-Peng Teo Jan 2015

Lower Limb Progressive Resistance Training Improves Leg Strength But Not Gait Speed Or Balance In Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Alex Tillman Tillman, Makii Muthalib, Ashlee M. Hendy, Liam G. Johnson, Timo Rantalainen, Dawson J. Kidgell, Peter G. Enticott, Wei-Peng Teo

The use of progressive resistance training ( PRT ) to improve gait and balance in people with Parkinson’s disease ( PD ) is an emerging area of interest. However, the main effects of PRT on lower limb functions such as gait, balance, and leg strength in people with PD remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of the meta-analysis is to evaluate the evidence surrounding the use of PRT to improve gait and balance in people with PD. Five electronic databases, from inception to December 2014, were searched to identify the relevant studies. Data extraction was performed by two independent reviewers and methodological quality was ...
