Background Although the gait and balance disturbances of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients were evaluated by using different methods in literature, the impact of the foot and body posture on gait and balance has not been clearly described yet in DMD.AimThe aim of this study was to examine the relationship between foot-body posture and gait...
Article
Although chronic multi-site musculoskeletal pain is known to cause decreased physical function and impair work and social life, there is insufficient research about its impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in women. The aim of this study was to investigate multiple factors affecting HRQoL in women with chronic multi-site musculoskeletal...
Article
Purpose: Physical inactivity is an important determinant of chronic disease such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. Therefore, evaluation of physical activity becomes more important day by day. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the validity, reliability and Turkish version of The Recent Physical Activ...
Article
Purpose: To investigate the parameters affecting upper limb function in the early period in subjects with upper limb burn injury. Material and Methods: This study included a total of 34 (26 F; 8 M) individuals with upper limb burn injury. Disabilities of the Arm Shoulder and Hand Questionnaire (QuickDASH) for upper extremity functions of subjects,...
Article
Introduction Gait impairment is commonly seen in patients with a lower limb burn injury (LLBI). Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of two different gait training modes on gait symmetry, functional mobility and kinesiophobia in patients with LLBI. Methods This matched control study was conducted between January 2017 and...
Article
Introduction Severe complications which may cause impaired physical functions of the lower limb can often develop in the long term following a burn injury which includes the lower extremity. The purpose of this study was to clarify the clinical determinants of lower limb functional status, functional mobility and exercise capacity in moderate/major...
Article
Objectives: To explore an individualized sonographic muscle thickness ratio and its cut-off values in the diagnosis of sarcopenia. Design: A total of 326 community-dwelling adults were included in this cross-sectional study. Total skeletal muscle mass was evaluated by bioelectrical impedance analysis, and 9-site muscle thickness measurements usi...
Article
Purpose: To identify clinical predictors of pulmonary functions, respiratory and peripheral muscle strength and functional exercise capacity in burn injury patients, and to compare these parameters with healthy subjects. Methods: The study included 47 burn injury patients aged 20–49 years, and 47 age and gender-matched healthy subjects. The patient...
Article
Background Little is known about whether a simulated upper limb condition reflects a real (burn-injury) upper limb pathology in terms of gait/footprint parameters. Research question The main aim of this study was to investigate the differences in these parameters between two conditions (real-simulation). Methods The study included burn patients...
Article
Background: sufficient research has not been conducted to determine the role of core and lower limb muscles in providing balance in older people. Objective: to investigate the relationships between the thickness of core/lower limb muscles and static/dynamic balance in older people. Methods: the study included a total of 68 older people (≥ 65 y...
Article
Background: Burns are traumatic injuries that result in severe tissue damage. A reduction in exercise capacity is the most common functional impairment, although it is not clear to what extent the severity of the burn injury affects the exercise capacity. Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the physiological responses to exercise and...
Conference Paper
Objectives: Impairments in joint range of motion, gait ability and balance cause physical disability in patients with lower limb burns. So that, early rehabilitation program (RP) has becoming increasingly important in acute burn care. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of early RP on physical functions in patients with lower limb b...
Article
Background: Taping is an effective temporary therapy for improving hallux valgus (HV) in adults. Although HV has been demonstrated to impair postural balance, there is a lack of information about how corrective taping affects balance and gait patterns in adults with HV deformity. Methods: Eighteen middle-aged female patients (average age, 53.5 y...
Conference Paper
Aim: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is characterized by chronic respiratory tract infection, increased work of breathing, and may result in reduced respiratory muscle function. The purpose of the study was to investigate effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on functional exercise capacity and respiratory muscle strength in PCD. Method: Tw...
Conference Paper

Introduction: Hyperinflation and increased work of breathing decrease operating length of inspiratory muscles and cause alterations in scapular biomechanics. The purpose of this study was to assess associations among pectoralis minor length (PML), scapular kinematics, and lung function in cystic fibrosis (CF). Methods: Ten CF children (4F 6M; FEV1=...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Exercise capacity is reduced in patients with chronic lung diseases including bronchiectasis. Physical activity level and exercise capacity are important determinants of health status and mortality. Our study objective was to compare physical activity level between patients with bronchiectasis and healthy subjects. Methods: Fifteen bronchi...
