A prospective evaluation of balance, gait, and strength to predict falling in women with multiple sclerosis


, : A prospective evaluation of balance, gait, and strength to predict falling in women with multiple sclerosis. Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 92(11): 1840-1846

Identify measures of balance, gait, and strength that predict falls in women with multiple sclerosis (MS). This prospective study followed participants for 1 year. University research laboratories. Participants: A convenience sample of women with MS (N=99). Not applicable. Main Outcome Measures: Balance was assessed with the limits of stability (LOS) test and the Sensory Organization Test. Peak force, torque, and power of knee flexors and extensors as well as hip abductors and adductors were also measured. Temporal-spatial parameters of gait were.

The focus of this review is to discuss the hypothesis that justifies the use of dual antiplatelet therapy of aspirin and clopidogrel versus monotherapy with aspirin in arterial vascular disease. By analyzing the CLARITY-TIMI and COMMIT trials, the...

Aims Left ventricular mass (LVM) is under the control of aldosterone and angiotensin 11 in experimental hypertension, but the effect of aldosterone on LVM is controversial in essential hypertension (EH). Some EH patients show a mild impairment of...
