There are about 156 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Cyprus. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
It is the ability to keep and maintain the body training balance control center. Dynamic balance is the ability to maintain an individual's static position while the movement and posture are active while static. With aging, it is thought that the system will be applied in practice. Control of cerebral blood flow and synapse, which decreases with advanced age and hypertension, continues. In addition to slowing down in mental functions such as memory and learning, it progresses and accelerates in the sense of vibration, nerve velocity, proprioceptor feedback under skin receptor control, and can occur in static, dynamic and isokinetic muscle strength. This causes you to continue the preparations for the necessary evaluations in your postural stability and you watch. Particularly geriatrics reported that Otogo supports us to improve balance in us. The purpose of this goal is to test in otago educational work on static and dynamic movements, lower hypertensive muscle work, capacity and capacity and competence.

SenseGuard (SG) is an innovative device for respiratory monitoring. At this study SG measurement will be integrated in a Methacholine Challenge Test (MCT) for monitoring changes in airway obstruction occurred during MCT in parallel to spirometry.
Low back pain (LBP) is a common health problem that affects people all over the world and is a leading cause of disability, affecting work performance and overall health. In patients with low back pain, spinal movements are restricted, endurance decreases, flexor, and extensor muscle strength weaken, and aerobic capacity is impaired. Exercise is an essential component in the therapy of many musculoskeletal issues and chronic disorders. In the literature, studies using Pilates exercises and PNF exercises in patients with CLBP have demonstrated that both treatments have some beneficial effects in terms of reducing pain and disability, as well as improving the functional level and quality of life. Studies in the literature showed that both methods are among the treatment methods frequently used in the clinic, but it is difficult to provide sufficient information about which method is more effective. Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine the effects of PNF and Pilates exercises on pain, body image, fear-avoidance beliefs, core stability, disability, and balance functions in individuals with CLBP.
Adolescents may experience daily difficulties in family and peer relationships, due to school and exams. These troubles are disturbing and obstructive events that can cause the stress that people usually encounter in their environmental interactions. It can negatively affect people's mental and physical health. It is stated that yoga regulates the nervous system and physiological functioning of the body, provides physical fitness and improves psychological well-being. However, it calms the soul and supports mental health. In this study, it was aimed to determine the effect of yoga training applied to 13-16 years old adolescents for 10 weeks on their psychological resilience and coping with stress.
Pressure ulcer is defined by the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) and the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) as "localized skin and/or skin, usually arising over bony prominences, caused by pressure alone, or by a combination of shear and pressure. subcutaneous tissue damage. Pressure ulcer is a painful, costly and preventable health problem that is frequently encountered especially in geriatrics group and in patients with limited daily activities or bedridden. It is an undesirable health care problem that is difficult to treat, but it is possible to prevent the development of pressure ulcers with the measures to be taken from the beginning of the disease. In order for nurses to fulfill their role in preventing pressure ulcers, the content of undergraduate education programs needs to be arranged in a way that will provide them with knowledge and skills in the prevention of pressure ulcers, diagnosis of risky patients and maintenance of care. In Northern Cyprus, knowledge and skills related to pressure sores are provided to students in the basic nursing education curriculum. However, the subject of pressure ulcer in the education programs of nursing schools differs in terms of content and duration, and most of the hospitals do not have a standard guide and training program for the prevention of pressure ulcers. In Northern Cyprus, studies on the knowledge and practices of nursing students to prevent pressure ulcers are limited. According to the results of a study conducted in Turkey, it has been reported that a significant portion of nursing students have a positive attitude towards preventing pressure ulcers, but their general knowledge about preventing pressure ulcers is insufficient. In another study, it was reported that 70.7% of nursing students encountered patients with pressure ulcers during hospital practices, but research findings and the knowledge of nursing students to prevent the development of pressure ulcers were insufficient. Similarly, in studies conducted with nursing students using different scales, it has been reported that students' knowledge levels about preventing pressure ulcers are low. This research was planned in accordance with the randomized controlled research method in order to determine the knowledge levels and practices of firts year nursing students to prevent pressure ulcers.
The education and counseling role is one of the independent roles of the nurse. In this context, discharge training and telephone counseling given to patients who underwent coronary artery bypass graft surgery increase the ability of patients to cope with and adapt to their self-care. This study was conducted to determine the effect of discharge training and telephone counseling on self-care agency, coping and adaptation process in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. The study has a randomized controlled, experimental design. Both experimental and control groups consisted of 35 individuals (N=70). Patients in the experimental group were given discharge training and telephone counseling service was given for two months. At the end of the process, data collection forms were administered to both groups for the last time. Necessary ethical approvals were taken and consent was taken from the patients. After the discharge training and telephone counseling given to the experimental group, the mean exercise of self-care agency scale score of the patients increased by 13.94; the mean coping and adaptation processing scale increased by 13.6. The mean exercise of self-care agency scale score of the control group increased by 7.86; the mean coping and adaptation processing score increased by 9.14. The effect size occurred for both groups was statistically significant (p<0.05). Positive results were achieved in the experimental group which received given discharge training and telephone counseling. It is recommended to provide planned discharge training and telephone counseling to patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery.
The subject of the research; Effects of exercise training on cardiometabolic risk factors and functional capacity in individuals undergoing bariatric surgery. Purpose of the research; Cardiometabolic risk factors, body composition, muscle strength and endurance, posture, foot sense, physical exercise capacity, balance, pain, exercise benefits - barriers, exercise self-efficacy, exercise beliefs, to evaluate the effects on body esteem, body image and quality of life. Method of Research: Post-surgical interventions are important in individuals who have undergone bariatric surgery. Intervention programs that include exercise, encourage the change in the lifestyle of individuals, effectively and accurately reduce post-surgical obesity. Functional Exercise Training, which can also be used for obesity treatment, consists of stretching, aerobics, strengthening and balance training. Therefore, it has a positive effect on body systems. In addition, Home Exercise Training can be used within the scope of obesity treatment. Exercise is one of the alternative methods by providing the adaptation of the individual to the exercise. Socio-demographic and physical characteristics of individuals will be recorded. Laboratory tests will be ordered for cardiometabolic risk factors. Body composition will be determined by Tanita brand body analysis monitor (MC-780MA). Posture will be evaluated by photogrammetry technique. Muscle strength assessment will be evaluated by leg, back and hand dynamometer instrument, muscle endurance tests, sensory assessment by foot sense assessment, physical capacity with physical exercise capacity tests, balance static and dynamic balance tests and pain questionnaire. Exercise benefits-barriers will be assessed by Exercise Benefits Barriers Scale, exercise self-efficacy by Exercise Self-Efficacy Scale. Exercise beliefs will also be questioned with a questionnaire. Self-esteem will be evaluated for all groups before and after treatment. The self respect will be evaluated by using the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, body image with the Body Image Scale, with the quality of life using the Obesity-Specific Quality of Life Scale.The training will be carried out 3 days a week for 8 weeks, approximately 1 hour. Sufficient number of assessments and exercises will be used for individuals to become familiar with the equipment and training protocol.
