NCT ID: NCT06254586 Completed - Health, Subjective Clinical Trials

Effects of Blood Flow Restriction Training on Exercises in Healthy Individuals.

Start date: April 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Partial restriction of blood flow to working muscles during exercise is proven to increase muscle mass and strength even with low-intensity of exercise. Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFRT) is also beneficial to improve the maximum rate of oxygen consumption (VO2max), bone health, and vascular health. Recent studies focus on its effects beyond the musculoskeletal system. Post-exercise hypotension is a known acute physiological response that happens after intense exercise. Early studies demonstrated BFRT might amplify the acute hypotensive effects with low intensity of exercise. However, it's not clear what type of exercise would help to lower blood pressure when it is combined with BFRT.

NCT ID: NCT06237361 Completed - Burns Clinical Trials

Pilates Benefits in Pediatric Burn Survivors

Start date: June 10, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study investigated the effects of Pilates exercises on lower limb muscle strength, functional capacity, and quality of life in children with burn injuries. In a twelve-week randomized clinical trial involving 60 children, those who received Pilates exercises in addition to traditional physical therapy showed significant improvements in muscle strength, functional capacity, and overall quality of life compared to those who received traditional therapy alone. The findings suggest that incorporating Pilates exercises into rehabilitation programs may enhance outcomes for children recovering from burn injuries.

NCT ID: NCT06230913 Completed - Clinical trials for Lymphedema of Upper Arm

Kinesiotaping Versus Pressure Garments on Secondary Upper Extremity Lymphedema.

Start date: September 1, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this randomised control study is to compare kinesiotaping and pressue garments in secondary upper extremity lymphedema following microsurgical breast reconstruction after severe chest burns. The primary objective of this study was to compare the effects of kinesiotaping and pressure garments on limb circumference, handgrip strength, shoulder pain and disability index (SPADI), and limb circumference in patients with lymphedema following breast reconstruction due to chest burns. The participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups: the kinesiotaping group (n = 28) and the pressure garments group (n = 28). To perform taping of the chest in the kinesiotaping group, the patient was asked to stand upright with the affected shoulder rotated externally. Five straps of the fan-shaped tape were extended to the chest toward the affected axilla with 15% to 20% tension, and the anchor was positioned without tension in the anterior axilla on the sound side. In the pressure garment group, the participant's skin was washed and dried before applying the PG. The Premium Lymphedema Gradient Garment (Jobskin, Long Eaton, England) was used to apply PGs. This garment has a pressure gradient built into it, applying between 20 and 60 mm Hg for at least 15 to 18 hours each day for three weeks.

NCT ID: NCT06229249 Completed - Clinical trials for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Effectiveness of Carpal Ligament Self-myofascial Stretching in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Start date: November 17, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), also known as median mononeuropathy, occurs when the median nerve is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the carpal tunnel at the wrist. It is common in the age group of 40-60 years. The main aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness of carpal ligament self-myofascial stretching over conventional physical therapy on reducing pain and improving function in patients with stage I and II CTS-thirty-six subjects with stage I and II (mild) CTS were recruited. Thirty-six subjects who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were randomly assigned to the experimental group and control group, with 18 patients in each group. The experimental group received carpal ligament self-myofascial stretching along with conventional physical therapy, while the control group received traditional physical therapy alone. The duration of the treatment was six weeks. The outcome measures used were the Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire and the Visual Analogue Scale.

NCT ID: NCT06226103 Completed - Clinical trials for Age-related Cognitive Decline

Effectiveness Of Computer-Based Cognitive Training in Age-Related Cognitive Decline

Start date: January 7, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Background: Ageing is frequently accompanied by physiological changes that might result in a deterioration in physical and cognitive abilities, which frequently leads to institutionalization or the loss of autonomy. Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is an intermediate state between normal cognitive aging and early dementia, the optimal period to intervene with preventive strategies and early treatments. Thus, the current study intends to investigate the effects of aerobic and computer-based cognitive training on age-related cognitive decline. Methods: This is a single-blinded, randomized controlled trial. Elderly patients with mild cognitive impairment (n = 60) will be randomized to 2 arms and treated for 12 weeks: arm 1 (aerobic exercise and computerized cognitive training) and arm 2 (Placebo; will not receive any intervention). Outcome measure used were Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA) test, Barthel Index (BI) and short form survey-12 (SF-12). Statistical Analysis: To compare the baseline characteristics and outcome variables between the two groups, independent t-tests was employed. A two-way repeated measures ANOVA was utilized to determine the interaction effect of time (baseline, post-treatment, and follow-up) and group (intervention vs. control) on the outcome measures.
