No previous research has examined age and sex differences in balance outcomes in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) at risk of falls. A secondary analysis of baseline data from an ongoing trial of fall prevention in COPD was conducted. Age and sex differences were analyzed for the Berg Balance scale (BBS), Balance Evaluat...
Article
Background: Limited research assessed the validity of the Activities-specific Balance Confidence, ABC) Scale in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD) at risk of falls. We report on the scale's construct and criterion validity. Methods: Construct validity was established by assessing known groups, convergent and divergent...
Article
Background: Effects of exercise-based interventions (EBIs) on people with interstitial lung disease (ILD) are not yet fully understood. Reasons may include the limited use of ILD-specific measures and/or the lack of adequate information regarding their measurement properties. The purpose of this review was to summarize the ILD-specific outcome mea...

BACKGROUND In individuals with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), anxiety and depression contribute to increased mortality and exacerbations, decreased physical functioning, and deteriorated health-related quality of life (HRQoL). The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) is a patient-reported tool developed to measure symptoms of...

This systematic review assessed the psychometric properties and the cross-cultural adaptation of the University of California and Los Angeles Loneliness scale (UCLA-LS) in adults. A systematic search of four electronic databases (PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus, and PsycINFO) was conducted from inception until March 2021. We followed the Consensus-Based Sta...
Article
Purpose Rehabilitation after acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) is beneficial, but its feasibility is questionable. Feasibility is potentiated by stakeholder involvement during program development. We aimed to explore the perspectives of various stakeholders towards an innovative rapid access rehabilitation (RAR)...
Article
This systematic review aimed to synthesize the evidence of the psychometric properties of self-efficacy patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We conducted a systematic search of MEDLINE and other common databases from inception until September 2020. Studies that reported psychometri...
Article
Purpose: This systematic review evaluated and compared the effectiveness of non-surgical and surgical interventions for managing shoulder pain in patients with diabetes. Methods: PubMed, Scopus, CINAHL, EMBASE, Sport Discus, and Cochrane library were searched for studies published in the last 20 years. Randomized clinical trials (RCTs) and cohor...

Background: Adhesive capsulitis (AC) occurs five times more often in people with diabetes and leads to prolonged disability. Exercises and joint mobilization are usually used to manage AC. However, the recovery is slow and often incomplete. Aerobic exercises improve hyperglycemia and insulin sensitivity. Currently, no research has formally assessed...
Article
Objectives The purpose of this study was to assess whether diabetes affects functional and physical outcomes following shoulder arthroplasty Methods A cohort of 140 patients were tested preoperatively, at an early follow-up visit (between 3-6 months) and at late follow-up visit (between 1-3 years) following shoulder arthroplasty. The American Shou...

Objective: Indirect calorimetry (IC) systems measure the fractions of expired carbon dioxide (F E CO 2 ) and oxygen (F E O 2 ) recorded at the mouth in order to estimate whole body energy production (EP). The fundamental principal of IC relates to oxidative mechanisms, expressed as rate of oxygen uptake (V̇O 2 ) and carbon dioxide production (V̇CO...

Article
Background: Shoulder arthroplasty has been shown to improve function in patients with advanced shoulder disease. However, the response to surgery and final outcomes are not easily predictable. This study assessed the effect of residual pain, age, sex, diabetes, hypertension, and depression on changes and status at one-year following arthroplasty w...
Article
Objective: This systematic review evaluated the effectiveness of non-surgical interventions for managing adhesive capsulitis (AC) in patients with diabetes on pain, function and range of motion. Data sources: MEDLINE and other databases were searched for studies published in the last 20 years. Study selection: Randomized clinical trials (RCTs)...
Article
Study design: Prospective cohort study. Introduction: Diabetes is reported to adversely affect outcomes; however, its effect on distal radial fractures (DRF) is not well examined. Purpose of the study: This study investigated the effect of diabetes on pain, hand function, physical health status, grip strength, and wrist and forearm range of mo...

The study aimed to examine the effects of diurnal Ramadan fasting (RF) on substrate oxidation, energy production, blood lipids and glucose as well as body composition. Nine healthy Muslim men (fasting (FAST) group) and eight healthy non-practicing men (control (CNT) group) were assessed pre- and post-RF. FAST were additionally assessed at days 10,...

The purpose of this study was to examine the accuracy of the vivofit activity tracker in assessing energy expenditure and step count. Thirteen participants wore the vivofit activity tracker for five days. Participants were required to independently perform 1 h of self-selected activity each day of the study. On day four, participants came to the la...
