    ABSTRACT: Aim: In Turkey, prostheses and orthoses have been manufactured early nineteenth century. The aim of this study is to analyse prosthetics and orthotics, which have been manufactured in Turkey over the last five years and create the infrastructure for scientific studies on this issue and to determine resource consumption. Material and Methods: In the last five years with applied prosthetic and orthotic manufactures were analysed based on the data achieved from Social Security Administration of Turkey. Results: 26236 prostheses and orthoses were manufactured during the last five years. 19381 of them were orthoses and 6755 were prostheses. 9588 lower limb orthoses, 8214 spinal orthoses, and 1579 upper limb orthoses, constitutes orthotics manufacturing and fitting. 6062 lower limb prostheses and 693 upper limb prostheses constitute all prosthetic manufacturing and fitting. According to the results, Knee-Ankle-Foot orthosis (KAFOs) are the most widely applied in the lower extremity orthotics. KAFOs constitute 74% of lower limb orthotics, 37% of orthotics and 27% of all prosthetic-orthotic applications. In addition to that, the most widely applied lower limb prostheses are modular transtibial (TT) prostheses. Modular TT prostheses constitute 63% of lower limb orthotic applications, 57% of prosthetic applications and 15% of prosthetic-orthotic applications. Conclusion: The numbers of KAFOs and modular TT prostheses are 10969 which is nearly 40% of 26236 prosthetic-orthotic applications.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine the effects of laterally wedged insoles to treat knee osteoarthritis on frontal plane mechanics and knee varus moment after one year. Methods: Fourteen individuals diagnosed as having medial knee osteoarthritis (OA) and 13 healthy controls were included in this study. Patients wore bilateral full length laterally wedged insoles with medial longitudinal arch, made of high density ethyl vinyl acetate, with 5° tilt angle in their shoes on a regular basis for at least one year. Three dimensional kinematics and kinetics were recorded as the knee OA patients walked in the laboratory after nearly one year both barefoot and with their insoles. Results: Knee angles and total range of motion in the frontal plane were not significantly different between walking conditions when compared to control group (p>0.05). Walking speed and step width were similar when patients walked barefoot and with laterally wedged insoles (p>0.05). Knee varus moment was prominently high when walking barefoot, and significantly decreased with laterally wedged insoles (p<0.05). Conclusion: Our data suggests that use of 5° laterally wedged insole have significant effects on knee varus moment in knee OA. Key words: Knee joint, Osteoarthritis; knee, Gait, Insole; laterally wedged.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of balance training and postural exercises on the functional level in individuals with mild mental retardation. Material and methods: Twenty-eight mildly mentally retarded (IQ=50-70) students who were attending the Special Education Elementary School were included for this study. Participants were randomly assigned to exercise (N=14) and control (N=14) groups. The exercise group participated in a balance training and postural exercise program with a Swiss ball for 8 weeks at a frequency of three times per week, in addition to the physical education program at the school. The control group followed only the physical education program at the school. Muscle endurance (Sit-Ups Test), flexibility (Sit and Reach Test), muscle strength and coordination (Chair Rising Test), functional mobility (Timed Up and Go Test and 50 Foot Walking Test) and balance (Pediatric Balance Scale) tests were performed to assess those variables. Assessments were performed prior to commencing the exercise program and after completion of the exercise program. Results: There was no statistically significant difference when the two groups were compared (p>0.05). A statistically significant difference was found in all parameters except flexibility in the exercise group (p<0.05). Conclusions: It was concluded that balance training and postural exercises were effective in improving the functional level in individuals with mental retardation.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: Studies on the relative efficacy of Interferential Current (IFC) and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is still inconclusive. This study compared the pain threshold of IFC and TENS on experimental cold induced pain among apparently healthy volunteers. Materials and methods: The subjects were 60 consented apparently healthy individuals (30 males, 30 females). Their age ranged between 20 and 25 years with mean age of 23.1±1.49. Subjects were randomly assigned into any of the 3 groups (IFC, TENS or Placebo). An Enraf- Nonius Endomed 582 ID electrical stimulator was used to generate TENS or IFC. The placebo group did not receive stimulation via a connected dummy stimulator. Stimulation was done on the forearm of the subjects while the hand was deep into cold water maintained at 0ºC. The duration of time that the subjects could tolerate the pain and self reported pain intensity were outcome measures. Results: The results revealed no statistical significance in pain intensity among the three groups (F=1.18; p>0.05). Similarly, the pain threshold among the three groups showed no significant difference (F=1.36; p>0.05). Conclusion: No significant difference was found in the pain threshold and pain intensity using either TENS or IFC or placebo on cold induced pain among apparently normal volunteers. Key words: Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation, Interferential current, Pain threshold, Pain intensity.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of cerebral palsy on children's health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and explore the association between the severity of disease and perception of HRQoL. Material and methods: A comparative study was conducted on 45 children with CP and 64 healthy children aged 5-12 years. Child Health Questionnaire (CHQ-PF50) was used to evaluate HRQoL. The severity of the CP was assessed by Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS). Results: Groups were comparative with respect to age and gender. Most of the subjects (66.7%) with CP were classified as GMFCS Level IV or V. Associated medical problems were more frequent in subjects with CP. Cerebral palsy led to significantly worse quality of life in all domains with the exception bodily pain and mental health scales (p<0.01). Correlation analyses showed that the scores on the physical functioning, role / social-physical limitations, and role / social, emotional / behavioral limitations scales of the CHQ-PF 50 decreased while the GMFCS level increased. Conclusion: Our results showed that cerebral palsy has a tremendous negative impact on quality of life of children. The severity of the motor impairment is associated with not only physical health but also psychological health. Interdisciplinary team approach is needed to improve quality of life of these children.
