Start date: July 17, 2017
Phase: N/A

NCT ID: NCT03685318 Completed - Quality of Life Clinical Trials

Effect of Shortening the Palatal Extension of the Mouthguard on the Degree of Satisfaction of Water Polo Players

Start date: March 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study assessed the influence of a reduction of the palate extension of a custom-made mouthguard on the degree of satisfaction of elite water polo players. Eighteen water polo players wore a custom-made conventional mouthguard or a reduced palate extension mouthguard during the training sessions and for competing for two weeks. The sequence was randomized to obtain one-half of the participants started the first week wearing the conventional mouthguard, and the other half wearing the shortened mouthguard. The participants rated the degree of discomfort in reference to speech, breathing, swallowing, nauseas/vomiting, pressure/pain, loosening, aesthetics, and athletic performance, in a 10-point scale, considering 0 no discomfort and 10 maximum discomfort. After each session, players also rated the perception of protection and the degree of satisfaction in a 10-point scale, considering 0 no protection/satisfaction and 10 maximum protection/satisfaction.

NCT ID: NCT03677232 Completed - Quality of Life Clinical Trials

The Living Experience of Hong Kong Chinese Adolescents With CHD.

Start date: August 11, 2017
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

This study aims to explore the impacts of CHD and its limitations on adolescents and the living experience of adolescents living with CHD.

NCT ID: NCT03673553 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

The Multidisciplinary Treatment of Fibromyalgia.

Start date: January 31, 2016
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Background Fibromyalgia is a pathology characterised by chronic pain that harms people's quality of life. This pathology requires an MRT that combines pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments. Currently, FPAs are important to society not only by offering activities that improve fibromyalgia symptomatology but also by increasing public awareness of the disease. The present study compares the effectiveness of a multimodal rehabilitation treatment (MRT) with that of the activities of a fibromyalgia patient association (FPA), and identifies the patient characteristics that can interfere with the success of interventions. Methods The quasi-experimental study selected forty-six older adults with fibromyalgia. The intervention group (n = 23) received pharmacological treatment, physical exercise, education, psychological therapies and Caycedian sophrology, while the control group (n = 23) carried out group psychological sessions and handicraft-based activities. Data collection included sociodemographic measures and responses to the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ). Participants were assessed pre- and post-intervention.

NCT ID: NCT03665220 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

Effects of Two Home Ergonomics Programmes in Post-stroke Patients

Start date: May 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The main objective of the clinical trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of two home ergonomics programmes, by reference to a control group, on functional capacity and quality of life in post-stroke patients.

NCT ID: NCT03656471 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

NCT ID: NCT03643536 Completed - Quality of Life Clinical Trials

12-week Exercise-based Program in Myocardial Revascularization Subjects

Start date: January 1, 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

To determine if a 12-week physical exercise program (12-WPEP), after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) with different left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) might improve the health-related quality of life (HRQOL).

NCT ID: NCT03643003 Completed - Quality of Life Clinical Trials

Music Therapy for Persons With Dementia

Start date: May 25, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a specific, protocol-based group music therapy intervention, relative to a verbal discussion activity. The study will examine the impact of the specified music therapy intervention on: (1) affective outcomes, (2) social engagement behaviors, and (3) observed quality of life of persons with ADRD. This study will use a within-subjects randomized crossover design involving N=30 persons with ADRD from nursing homes to examine two levels of independent variable: singing-based music therapy and verbal discussion. Both conditions will be held in small groups of 3-6 participants. Nursing homes will be randomly assigned to an intervention sequence in a counterbalanced order (either music therapy first or verbal discussion first), and participants serve as their own controls. Each condition will occur three times per week for two consecutive weeks (6 sessions per treatment). Each session lasts for 25 minutes in the afternoon. A 2-week "wash-out" period (i.e., usual treatment) will occur between conditions. Participants will remain with their assigned small group for all study activities (i.e., music therapy, verbal discussion). Board-certified music therapists (i.e., MT-BC) will lead both conditions and will complete systematic training to ensure these conditions are implemented as intended, following a manualized protocol. An independent auditor will conduct random checks to ensure the music therapists are implementing the conditions as stipulated in the protocol. Data takers will complete systematic, manualized training to ensure reliable data collection.
