51 Charting the progression of disability in parkinson disease: study protocol for a prospective longitudinal cohort studyBackground: People with Parkinson disease (PD), even in the presence of symptomatic relief from medical, surgical, and rehabilitative interventions, face a persistent worsening of disability. This disability is characterized by diminished quality of life, reduced functional mobility, declining perf...2010
52 They bring their memories with them: Somali Bantu resettlement in a globalized worldThe Somali Bantu, arriving in the United States after many years in Kenyan refugee camps, face significant barriers to successful integration into American society. Those responsible for managing initial resettlement at the local level were not prepared to provide appropriate assistance to this gro...2010
53 Amplification of fall risk in Parkinson's disease: the influence of comorbiditiesLong term studies examining the progression of Parkinson's disease (PD) report the mean age of diagnosis to be in the mid sixties.' The diagnosis of PD typically .occurs after the presentation of motor deficits such as resting tremor, rigidity, hypokinesia, or postural instability. 2 Parkinson's di...2010
54 Ceramide-induced disruption of endothelial nitric oxide synthase dimerization in bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAECs) is not secondary to peroxynitrite formationAn estimated 23.6 million individuals in the United States have diabetes and of those 90-95% have type II diabetes. Cardiovascular complications (e.g., hypertension and vascular dysfunction) are four-fold more prevalent in patients with type II diabetes.1 The mechanism(s) responsible for increased s...2010-01-01
55 Sound production treatment: application with severe apraxia of speechAcquired apraxia of speech (AOS) has been shown to be responsive to behavioural intervention. Although numerous treatments for AOS have been developed, most have received limited study. Specifically, the AOS treatment evidence base is compromised by a lack of replication of treatment effects. Sound ...2010-01-01
56 Ceramide-induced disruption of endothelial nitric oxide synthase dimerization in bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAECs) is not secondary to peroxynitrite formationAn estimated 23.6 million individuals in the United States have diabetes and of those 90-95% have type II diabetes. Cardiovascular complications (e.g., hypertension and vascular dysfunction) are four-fold more prevalent in patients with type II diabetes. To gain insight into mechanisms responsib...Ceramide-induced disruption; Nitric oxide synthase dimerization; Bovine aortic endothelial cells; BAEC; Peroxynitrite formation; Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-01-20
57 Preventing falls in the elderlyExercise programs have been found to reduce falls in the elderly. In a study published in 2009, only 8 weeks of exercise training 3 times/week (including calistinics, muscle power, body balance, and walking training ) decreased the incidence of falls in the elderly population by 12% (Iwamoto, et al...Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-05-18
58 Maintaining balance through fitness funThe risk for falls increases dramatically with age. Approximately 25% - 35% of people over the age of 65 years experiences one or more falls each year (Shumway-Cook, 1997). The Berg Balance Test has been shown to have moderately good sensitivity, and high specificity, and therefore is a good pred...Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-05-18
59 Weight pressure in sport-females (WPS-F) scoring informationPurpose: To assess sport-specific weight pressures for female athletes participating in a variety of sports Refer to the following article for more information regarding the development of the WPS-F: Reel, J.J., SooHoo, S., Petrie, T.A., Greenleaf, C., Carter, J.E. (June 2010). Slimming down fo...2010-05-25
60 Weight pressures in sport-males (WPS-M) scoring informationPurpose: To assess sport-specific weight pressures for male athletes participating in a variety of sports Refer to the following article for more information regarding the development of the ...2010-06-02

62 Determination of step rate thresholds corresponding to physical activity intensity classifications in adultsBackground: Current recommendations call for adults to be physically active at moderate and/or vigorous intensities. Given the popularity of walking and running, the use of step rates may provide a practical and inexpensive means to evaluate ambulatory intensity. Thus, the purpose of this study wa...2011
63 Development of a scale to assess avoidance behavior due to a fear of falling: the fear of falling avoidance behavior questionnaireBackground. A history of falls or imbalance may lead to a fear of falling, which may lead to self-imposed avoidance of activity; this avoidance may stimulate a vicious cycle of deconditioning and subsequent falls. Objective. The purpose of this study was to develop a questionnaire that would quanti...2011
64 An eccentrically biased rehabilitation program early after TKA surgeryRehabilitation services are less-studied aspects of the management following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) despite long-term suboptimal physical functioning and chronic deficits in muscle function. This paper describes the preliminary findings of a six-week (12 session) eccentrically-biased rehabili...2011
65 Eccentric exercise versus usual-care with older cancer survivors: the impact on muscle and mobility- an exploratory pilot studyBackground: Resistance exercise programs with high compliance are needed to counter impaired muscle and mobility in older cancer survivors. To date outcomes have focused on older prostate cancer survivors, though more heterogeneous groups of older survivors are in-need. The purpose of this explorat...2011
66 Teacher awareness and implementation of food and physical activity policies in Utah Elementary Schools, 2010Introduction Schools are a key venue for childhood obesity prevention policies. The objective of this study was to examine factors associated with elementary school teacher awareness and implementation of their schools' food and physical activity policies. Methods We collected data through an online...2011-01-01
67 A review of return to sport concerns following injury rehabilitation: practitioner strategies for enhancing recovery outcomesObjectives: Evidence suggests that competitive athletes returning to sport following injury rehabilitation may experience a range of psychosocial concerns. The purpose of this paper is to review some of the psychosocial stresses common among returning athletes and to provide practitioner strategies ...2011-01-01
68 Apraxia of speech: perceptual analysis of trisyllabic word productions across repeated sampling occasionsEarly apraxia of speech (AOS) research has characterized errors as being variable, resulting in a number of different error types being produced on repeated productions of the same stimuli. Conversely, recent research has uncovered greater consistency in errors, but there are limited data examining ...2011-01-01
69 The influence of a simulated 'pep talk' on athlete inspiration, situational motivation, and emotionCoaches routinely use pep talks to inspire and motivate athletes, but the efficacy of this strategy has not been empirically examined. Conceptually based on Thrash and Elliot's [3, 4] inspiration research this study explored the impact of a simulated pep talk on inspiration, inspiration to perform, ...2011-01-01

75 Cytosolic, but not mitochondrial, oxidative stress likely contributes to cardiac hypertrophy resulting from cardiac specific GLUT4 deletion in miceWe hypothesized that oxidative stress may contribute to the development of hypertrophy observed in mice with cardiac specific ablation of the insulin sensitive glucose transporter gene (GLUT4, G4H-/-4 ). Measurements of oxidized glutathione (GSSG) in isolated mitochondria and whole heart homogenates...2012-01-01
