Análise da concordância entre instrumentos de avaliação de flexibilidade para os músculos isquiocrurais em idosos
(Revista Terapia Manual, 2014) [Artigo]
Introduction : The aging is characterized by a reduction in the effectiveness of skills, among them the loss of the flexibility. The hamstring muscles may be affected by the decreased flexibility occurs when elderly can ...
ANALYSIS of THE FUNCTIONAL BALANCE and ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC ACTIVITY IN ELDERLY WOMEN WITH OSTEOPOROSIS SUBMITTED TO TRAINING WITH OSCILLATORY POLE
(Osteoporosis International, 2012-12-01) [Resumo]
Análise do equilíbrio e da qualidade de vida de idosos com Alzheimer e a influência na qualidade de vida do Cuidador
(Terapia Manual, 2010) [Artigo]
With the growing aging population will be an increase of chronic degenerative diseases such as dementia. Among the various forms of dementia Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most prevalent. In individuals with AD, there is ...
Comparação do alongamento estático, balístico e contrair-relaxar nos músculos isquiotibiais
(Fisioterapia e Pesquisa, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
This study aimed to compare the effect of three stretching techniques (ballistic, static and contract-relax) on instant gain muscle flexibility on the hamstring muscle. We evaluated 23 subjects of both gender [means (SD) ...
Discriminatory Ability of Lower-Extremity Peak Torque and Rate of Torque Development in the Identification of Older Women With Slow Gait Speed
(Journal Of Applied Biomechanics, 2018-08-01) [Artigo]
The aim was to compare torque and rate of torque development of lower limb muscles between older women with functional and slow gait speeds to determine which muscle group is the best predictor of functional gait speed, ...
Is it possible to predict falls in older adults using gait kinematics?
(Clinical Biomechanics, 2018-11-01) [Artigo]
Background: Gait kinematic parameters have been reported as an important clinical tool to assess the risk of falls in older adults. However, the ability of these parameters to predict falls in the older population is still ...
Cardiac autonomic responses induced by a single bout of exercise with flexible pole
(International Archives of Medicine, 2014-09-23) [Artigo]
Background: Flexible poles are tools used to provide rapid eccentric and concentric muscle contractions. It lacks in the literature studies that analyze acute cardiovascular responses in different exercises performed with ...
The ability of gait kinematic parameters to predict falls in older adults with cognitive impairments living in long term institutions
(Clinical Biomechanics, 2019-05-01) [Artigo]
Background: Cognitive impairments reduce adaptive responses and may increase the risk of falls. Objectives: To compare gait kinematics in older adults with cognitive impairments living in long term institutions and to ...
Quadriceps muscle weakness influences the gait pattern in women with knee osteoarthritis
(Advances in rheumatology (London, England), 2018-08-31) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent rheumatic disease in the population and is characterized by limitation of main functional activities of daily living, as the gait. Muscle strength is a variable that may be ...
Neuromuscular performance in the hip joint of elderly fallers and non-fallers
(Aging Clinical And Experimental Research, 2016-06-01) [Artigo]
Backgrounds Low strength and neuromuscular activation of the lower limbs have been associated with falls making it an important predictor of functional status in the elderly. Aim To compare the rate of neuromuscular ...
