DD SIG & JNPT Collaboration: Improvement in the Capacity for Activity Versus Improvement in Performance of Activity in Daily Life During Outpatient Rehabilitation– with Catherine Lang and Carey Holleran – Episode 32 

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Catherine Lang and Dr. Carey Holleran from Washington University in St. Louis about their article scheduled for publication in the January 2023 issue of JNPT titled “Improvement in the Capacity for Activity Versus Improvement in Performance of Activity in Daily Life During Outpatient Rehabilitation. Dr. Lang and Dr. Holleran discuss the difference between patients’ capacity in the clinic and their functional performance outside of the clinical setting. In this multi-site trial, they compared performance and capacity measures for patients with Parkinson disease and stroke, measuring upper limb and lower limb function. Tune in to hear more about their statistical analysis, selection of outcomes, and clinical implications of considering performance when evaluating patients, setting goals, and measuring progress.

Spreading the Evidence: Integrating Evidence in Practice

In this episode, physical therapist and clinician, Jonathan Kinzinger, shares his story of finding evidence that he could apply to practice. Resources such as the Clinical Practice Guidelines for the core outcome measures and locomotor training inspired him to change practice. He is now embarking on systematic change.

Stroke SIG: Episode 17

Host Dr. Jackie Loeshelle is joined by Dr. Evan Cohen and Dr. Mark Manago to discuss blood flow restriction training for patients with neurologic deficits. During the interview, Drs. Cohen and Manago discuss how blood flow restriction works physiologically and evidence on using this intervention for individuals with a variety of neurologic diagnoses. They discuss how fatigue is often a limiting factor of exercise (for both strengthening and aerobic training) with patient with neurologic conditions, and that the addition of blood flow restriction may allow patients to be able to work at a higher intensity when fatigue is a barrier.

DD SIG: CSM 2022 Poster Award: Wearable Sensors for Balance and Mobility in Persons with Parkinson’s Disease: A Systematic Review- with Lindsay Fitchett 

In this episode, we highlight one of the winners of our poster awards at CSM 2022. Lindsay Fitchett talks to Chris Burke about her group’s systematic review of wearable sensors assessing balance and mobility in people with PD. They discuss themes from the review including differentiating PIGD and tremor-dominant subtypes, looking at fall risk, assessing movement strategies/transfers, and sensor-based interventions. They also discuss potential future avenues for sensors in rehab.
