Article
Background: Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a significant cause of hospitalisation and death in young children. Positioning and mechanical ventilation have been regularly used to reduce respiratory distress and improve oxygenation in hospitalised patients. Due to the association of prone positioning (lying on the abdomen) with sudden...
Article
Patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) find it difficult to visit the hospital many times for a standard Epley’s maneuver performed only by a specialist. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of a home-based particle repositioning procedure (HBPRP) with the standard Epley’s maneuver in treating patients with posterior...

Aim Stakeholders have an important role in both prevention and management of work related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs). However, the scope of practice is unclear regarding the methods and levels of stakeholder engagement (SE) in management of WRMSDs. The aim of this review is to map the literature regarding various methods and levels of SE an...

This review evaluates the evidence on the strength of causal relationship between categories of risk factors (RFs) and work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) among professional drivers. Background A compilation of evidence on the causal relationship between RFs and WRMSDs among professional drivers is lacking. Methods A systematic search o...
Article
Identification of the primary source of pain determines the success of musculoskeletal pain management. A detailed history and physical examination are the current gold standards for identifying musculoskeletal pain source in day-to-day clinical practice. This process, at times, may potentially result in inadequate/inappropriate identification of t...
Article
BACKGROUND Vestibular dysfunctions result in a wide range of impairments and can have debilitating consequences on a person's day-to-day activities. Conventional vestibular rehabilitation is effective but suffers from poor therapy compliance due to boredom. Virtual reality technology can make training more engaging and allow precise quantification...
Article
Plant derivatives, such as anthocyanin‐rich phytochemicals, have been reported to elicit a positive effect on lipid profile. Therefore, the aim of this study was to systematically review and meta‐analyze the effects of Aronia consumption on lipid profiles, blood pressure, and biomarkers of inflammation in randomized controlled trials. A systematic...

Article
Background: The Self-Management Open Online Trials in Health (SMOOTH) survey reports methods as well as researcher preferences in online trials and explores to what extent public and participant involvement in online trials occurs. This survey queried researchers’ experience in online trials and their perceived value in terms of public and patient...
Article
Background: The growth of trials conducted over the internet has increased, but with little practical guidance for their conduct and it is sometimes challenging for researchers to adapt the conventions used in face-to-face trials and maintain the validity of the work. Aim: To systematically explore existing self-recruited online randomized trial...

Admission to an intensive care unit (ICU) initiates an inter-professional and inter-disciplinary approach to bring the patient back to health with normal or near normal function. Physiotherapists play a vital role in restoring function to the patient. The role of physiotherapy (PT) in the ICU has moved from primarily being one of only respiratory c...

BACKGROUND The use of public engagement and self-management in online clinical trials is growing with benefits, boundaries and minimal methodological guidance. This analysis explores whether running self-recruited online trials can provide trustworthy and useful answers to research questions. AIM To systematically explore existing self-recruited...

Article
Phantom limb pain (PLP) can be disabling for nearly two thirds of amputees. Hence, there is a need to find an effective and inexpensive treatment that can be self administered. Among the non-pharmacological treatment for PLP, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) applied to the contralateral extremity and mirror therapy are two promisi...
