Background Decision makers want to know if there is a financial benefit in investing scarce resources in occupational health management (OHM). Economic evaluations (EEs) of OHM-strategies try to answer this question. However, EEs of OHM-strategies which are strongly marked by quantitative methods may be limited by contextual, qualitative residuals....

Background Mechanical forces and joint misalignment are considered risk factors for the development of knee osteoarthritis (KOA). Early detection of KOA and distinction between lateral and medial compartment overloading (CO), might be important to inform appropriate preventative interventions. This study evaluated reliability and validity of a test...

Background and aims Previously, we determined that training with vibrotactile feedback (VTfb) of trunk sway improves MS patients' balance impairment. Here, we posed 5 questions: 1) How many weeks of VTfb training are required to obtain the best short-term carry over effect (CoE) with VTfb? 2) How long does the CoE last once VTfb training terminates...

Background and aims: Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) suffer from diminished balance control. We examined whether 4 sessions of training with vibrotactile biofeedback (VTfb) of trunk sway could improve their balance control and provide a carry-over effect. Methods: Baseline trunk sway was first measured for 15 MS patients. Then they received h...

Introduction Le facteur neurotrophique dérivé du cerveau (BDNF) est libéré suite à l’exercice aérobie et semble influencer positivement les modifications neuroplastiques de la fonction cognitive et de l’apprentissage moteur après un accident vasculaire cérébral (AVC) ou une lésion traumatique du cerveau. Cependant ces relations n’ont pas été explic...
Article
Introduction Le « Brain-derived neurotrophic factor » (BDNF) est davantage diffusé au terme d’un entraînement aérobie et semble avoir un effet positif sur les modifications neuroplastiques. Des améliorations de certaines capacités cognitives ont été démontrées chez des participants sains, jeunes et plus âgés. Les intensités d’entraînement et leur r...
Article
Introduction Les articulations du genou sont exposées quotidiennement à des forces de contact variées et donc susceptibles de s’user. L’identification de zones de surcharge doit permettre une détection précoce et une correction des mauvais points d’appui. L’ABS est un processus d’étude utilisé en physiothérapie qui consiste à effectuer des tests ma...
