The six minute walking test (6MWT) was developed by the American Thoracic Society and it was officially introduced in 2002, coming along with a comprehensive guideline.. The 6 Minute Walk Test is a sub-maximal exercise test used to assess aerobic capacity and endurance. The distance covered over a time of 6 minutes is used as the outcome by which to compare changes in performance capacity The time required to administer the DEMMI was rounded to the nearest 30 seconds and was recorded using a stop watch. In the final test in May 2012, testing was carried out on all course contents under international supervision, including representatives of Air Traffic Control ISAF ( International Security Assistance Force ). All students passed this test with satisfactory or good results The consistency of the DEMMI across independent samples provides confidence in the interpretation and clinical application of DEMMI scores. The MDC90 indicates that a minimum change score of 9 Rasch converted points on the DEMMI is required for 90% confidence that a true change in patient mobility has occurred and the MCID indicates a minimum change of 10 points is required to represent a clinically important change in patient mobility. These data were derived from inter-rater error estimates. Since inter-rater reliability estimates are typically larger than intra-rater, our calculations provide clinicians with conservative estimates of measurement error.Mobility items were administered in the order of bed, chair, balance and walking activities to maximise patient safety, confidence and ease of testing. Familiarisation trials were not provided to minimise fatigue and time required to administer the test. At each test the therapist and patient independently rated the patient's current mobility compared with admission mobility on a 5 point scale (much worse, bit worse, same, bit better, much better). This provided a reference standard for important change in mobility.
. Stochastic resonance whole-body vibration (SR-WBV) devices are promising sensorimotor interventions to address muscle weakness and to improve balance and mobility particularly in the elderly. However, it remains inconclusive whether individuals with stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI) can profit from this method. The aim of this prospective single-blind randomized controlled. Family caregivers are confronted with high demands creating a need for professional support and at the same time hindering its utilization. Telephone support allows easier access than face-to-face support because there is no need to leave the person with dementia alone or find an alternative carer. It is also independent of transport possibilities or mobility. The objectives are to evaluate.

Background: The SWAY Balance Mobile Application is an FDA-cleared balance testing system which uses the built-in tri-axial accelerometers of a mobile electronic device to objectively assess postural movement. The system was designed to provide a means of quantitative balance assessment in clinical and on-field environments. The purpose of this study was to determine the intrasession and.
Data for the 17 mobility items fitted the Rasch model (item-trait χ2 = 41.17, df = 34, p = 0.19). The t test procedure [24,33] identified that the percentage of individual t tests outside the acceptable range was only 4.23%. (95% CI 1.0% to 7.0%). This provides further evidence of the unidimensionality of the 17 mobility items.Although the DEMMI was developed for acutely hospitalised older patients, the potential applications of this instrument are broad. Due to its inclusive scale width, the DEMMI has the potential to be used in many clinical settings and subsequently enhance the continuity of care of older adults across providers, clinical settings and in the community. Further research is underway to validate the DEMMI across clinical settings and in the community and to translate the DEMMI into other languages.Ninety seven mobility items were generated from focus groups and 75 items from existing mobility instruments. One additional item was generated from patient interviews. After removal based on item duplication, redundancy and application of inclusion criteria, 51 items remained for pilot testing (Table (Table11).Funding sources for this research were the HCF Health and Medical Research Foundation (external grant) and the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia (Dora Lush Postgraduate Scholarship, Grant no. 280632).Figure Figure55 shows the item hierarchy for the 15 DEMMI items was consistent across independent samples. The final DEMMI is shown in Additional file 1 and its clinimetric properties reported in Table Table3.3. The measurement properties of the DEMMI (Rasch, reliability, validity and MCID) were consistent with estimates obtained from the instrument development sample.
Item residuals from Rasch analysis were also examined as a finding of no association between residuals for individual items has been argued as evidence of local item independence . High positive correlation between residuals provides evidence of local item dependence and high negative correlations is thought to indicate multidimensionality. Art-based interventions are resource-oriented approaches that focus on peoples' individual resources, capacity, and inner potentials. Such interventions aim to uncover and promote existing skills and competencies in order to improve the well-being, the emotional condition and the self-esteem of people with dementia 10 Sekunden Stehen in der Tandemposition, d.h. beide Füße stehen in einer Linie hintereinander, die Ferse des vorangesetzten Fußes berührt die Spitze des anderen Fußes.

Raw scores for the reduced item set were converted to a 0–100 interval scale. The clinimetric properties for the 17 item DEMMI are reported in Table Table33.
Data fitted the model at each assessment time point; baseline (χ2 = 24.60, df = 30, p = 0.74), first 48 hour assessment (χ2 = 36.37, df = 30, p = 0.20) and subsequent 48 hour assessments (χ2 = 36.26, df = 28, p = 0.14). Given the similar findings across samples, analysis of hospital admission data is reported.The refined instrument was then tested on an independent sample of older acute medical patients and evaluated, as per phases 2 and 3. An independent physiotherapist (not involved in the instrument development) conducted the mobility assessments.

Sehen Sie sich den Tandem Test in unserer Mediathek an: Tandem Stan At the start of the study, all patients underwent a physical investigation to determine their orthopaedic status, which included the Chair-Rising test (CR test), walking speed (WS), Tandem Stand (TS), Tandem Gait (TG), Hand Grip Strength (HGS), and a guideline-oriented laboratory screening .g., tandem stance), walking speed over 4 m, and five times chair stand performance from the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) were also administered. The timed up and go test (TUG) was used as a combination of basic functionality, physical mobility, and dynamic balance [26-28] 3School of Physiotherapy, Division of Allied Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, La Trobe University, Victoria, 3086, Australia The test captures limitations in lower extremity functioning that relate to gait, balance and strength. The SPPB has been demonstrated to have excellent psychometric properties and is predictive of a broad range of adverse outcomes, including mortality, incident disability, falls, hospitalization and healthcare utilization
The DEMMI has minimal equipment requirements and the scale protocol and scoring system fit onto one page (back and front). Only a bed or plinth, arm chair (seat height 45 cm) and pen are required to conduct the test. These pieces of equipment are usually readily available in hospital wards or emergency departments. The DEMMI can be quickly and easily applied in an acute hospital where the time and space available for testing would be similar, if not more constrained, than other clinical settings. Since the DEMMI is appropriate and without practical limitations for the broad spectrum of conditions seen in older acute medical patients, it is likely to also be safe for administration in most clinical populations.

. A simple conversion table allows ordinal mobility scores (out of 19) to be converted to interval mobility scores (out of 100). For statistical purposes, a group mean increase of 20 (converted) points, for example, represents the same amount of improvement in mobility across individuals regardless of whether the patient is bed bound or independently mobile at initial assessment. Interval data allows researchers to interpret parametric statistical tests of DEMMI data. The parameters used in the calculation of the sample size included t test for independent samples, two groups, power of .80, and .05 significance level (Cohen, 1988). Eighteen participants were.
. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS —A total of 84 men with type 2 diabetes, 40 with MA and 44 without MA (aged 63.5 ± 9.0 vs. 61.2 ± 9.8 years), were studied Leisure activities can be both enjoyable and cognitively stimulating, and participation in such activities has been associated with reduced age-related cognitive decline. Thus, integrating stimulating leisure activities in cognitive training programs may represent a powerful and innovative approach to promote cognition in older adults at risk of dementia. The ENGAGE study is a randomized. Following item testing and Rasch analysis, 32 items were reduced to 17 (Table (Table1).1). DIF by time was not identified for the 17 items and therefore Rasch analysis was performed on data from hospital admission and subsequent 48 hour assessments. Rescoring three items (lie to sit, sit to stand and walking distance) produced ordered thresholds for all items.
. These authors recommend a sample size of 64 – 144 to provide 95% confidence +/- 0.5 logits. Baseline and 48 hour assessments during a 3–4 month period were expected to provide more than 200 assessments. In the absence of DIF by time, all available assessments would be included for Rasch analysis as recommended by Wright  and Chang and Chang . ej. en jeu une autre idée du sport la revue de l'UFOLEP.

In a second time, to test and improve patient's knowledge, the team played with them, thanks to a medication quiz called question for a patient including twenty question about pharmacovigilance, self‐medication, drug used during pregnancy, generics drugsFinally the team submitted them a satisfaction survey Objectives The purpose of this study was to provide a more precise definition of an integrated oncogeriatric approach (IOGA) through concept analysis. Data sources The literature was reviewed from January 2005 to April 2011 integrating three broad terms: geriatric oncology, multidisciplinarity and integrated care delivery models. Study eligibility criteria Citation selection was based on: (1. Figure Figure33 shows that of 344 new hospital admissions screened, 216 were eligible, 132 were recruited and 112 performed at least one mobility assessment. Six patients were readmitted during the study period and were included twice as new hospital admissions. Another six patients did not complete a hospital admission assessment. Table Table22 shows the admission characteristics for the 106 patients included in this study. A total of 312 mobility assessments were performed using the 17 mobility items. Patients in the validation study did not differ from the instrument development sample on any baseline characteristic.The complete set of 51 mobility items were pilot tested for two weeks to remove items with practical limitations, a process that included patient and assessor interview about the mobility tests. The remaining 42 items were then tested on a large sample by the principal researcher. After completion, items with practical limitations were removed and Rasch analysis conducted.
Based on Rasch analysis, an interval scoring system (0–100) was developed to facilitate clinical application and clinimetric evaluation of the reduced item set.Hospitalised people have a diverse range of acute clinical presentations and co-morbid conditions. The primary aim of this research was to develop a practical and high quality instrument with the scale width for measuring the mobility status of all hospitalised older medical patients. A fundamental aspect of instrument design was that data would be based on observation of performance rather than patient or proxy recall of mobility to avoid distortion associated with poor recall or cognitive deficits .
CAPADOGE (Conseils en Activité physique pour la Prévention de la perte d'Autonomie Des patients d'Onco‐GEriatrie) was a multicentre open‐label 12 month randomized clinical trial with two parallel arms conducted in 12 recruiting centres in France. The intervention took place between October 2011 and May 2016 The elderly population in the United States is increasing exponentially in tandem with risk for frailty. Frailty is described by a clinically significant state where a patient is at risk for developing complications requiring increased assistance in daily activities. Frailty syndrome studied in geriatric patients is responsible for an increased risk for falls, and increased mortality In the validation study, two items were tested but removed from analysis. The jog item was removed to maximise the potential for the DEMMI to be used by clinicians with varying clinical experience and from different healthcare disciplines. Since this item was tested last, patient performance on this item did not influence performance on other items. The standing on one leg eyes closed item was the most difficult item in the instrument development sample. Since no participants were able to successfully complete the standing on one leg eyes closed item in the validation study, this extreme item could not be included in Rasch analysis. However, given that the properties of the 15 DEMMI items were consistent across independent samples despite the differing number of items tested, removal of this item (attempted by only 30% of patients) is unlikely to have influenced the estimated clinimetric properties of the final instrument. Leigh syndrome is a neurodegenerative disease caused by mitochondrial dysfunction resulting in symmetric, bilateral lesions in the basal ganglia, thalamus, and brain stem [19,20]. Leigh syndrome is the most common clinical finding associated with mitochondrial disease of childhood and displays significant genetic heterogeneity [ 20 , 21 ] Validation sample: flow of participants through the study. * 6 patients were readmitted during the study period and were tested twice as 'new admissions.' # 106 'new admission' patients (100 patients) completed a hospital admission assessment (6 patients did not perform an admission assessment)
Physical and functioning tests included the 6-minute walk test (6-MWT), 71 the modified physical performance test (PPT), 72 the timed up and go (TUG), 73 handgrip strength, and chair stand. The 6-MWT is a self-paced walking test in which participants must travel the longest distance possible in 6-minute time The Timed Up and Go test (TUG) is a simple test used to assess a person's mobility and requires both static and dynamic balance.. It uses the time that a person takes to rise from a chair, walk three meters, turn around, walk back to the chair, and sit down. During the test, the person is expected to wear their regular footwear and use any mobility aids that they would normally require Background: There is general consensus regarding the benefit of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (e.g. donepezil) in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the combined effect of acetylcholinesterase and cognitive stimulation therapy (CST) is still controversial. Objective: This study examines their combined effect on the progression of cognitive decline in AD by comparing the cognitive performance.
During follow-up, 414 (23.9%) individuals were diagnosed with cancer. Handgrip strength, gait speed, chair stand ability, chair stand test time and ability to put on and take off a cardigan did not differ between groups. Individuals prior to cancer diagnosis were more likely to complete the tandem balance test Pilot testing on 15 consecutive older general medical patients identified 9 items for removal based on practical limitations (Table (Table11).

Figure Figure22 shows that of the 388 new hospital admissions screened for inclusion, 219 were eligible, 104 were recruited and 89 performed at least one mobility assessment. Three patients were readmitted during the study period and were included twice as new hospital admissions. Table Table22 shows the admission characteristics for the 86 patients included in this study. There were no adverse events as a result of the mobility assessments. A further 8 items were removed due to practical limitations that were identified following further testing and the 4 walking items were rescored to 2 items to limit local item dependence (an assumption of Rasch analysis)(Table analysis)(Table11).

Like other indices that monitor critical aspects of health such as blood pressure tests, a mobility test for all older acute medical patients provides essential health data. We have developed and validated an instrument that captures essential information about the mobility status of older acute medical patients.

The protocol will include the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB, [67,68,69]).The SPPB measures balance (tandem, semi-tandem, and side-by-side stand), gait speed (walking twice four meters at a comfortable speed) and chair rise performance (5-Chair rise test, as fast as possible) which has been shown to be reliable in older adults (ICC = 0.83-0.89, ) Mobility is an important indicator of the health status of older people. According to the World Health Organisation's International Classification of Functioning (ICF)  'mobility' is classified as one of nine domains of 'activity and participation' and is defined as "moving by changing body position or location or by transferring from one place to another, by carrying moving or manipulating objects, by walking, running or climbing, and by using various forms of transportation."
The role of vitamin D in the prevention and treatment of non-skeletal health issues has received significant media and research attention in recent years. Costs associated with clinical management of low vitamin D (LVD) have increased exponentially. However, no clear evidence supports vitamin D screening to improve health outcomes Differential item functioning (DIF) analysis  was planned for age, gender, time of assessment, cognitive status (MMSE) and whether an interpreter was required. DIF was considered significant if the chi-square probability value was lower than the Bonferroni-adjusted p value. A priori, these factors were considered potential confounders to item functioning.
Discriminant validity for the DEMMI was evidenced by a low correlation with measures of other constructs (MMSE, APACHE 11 severity of illness and Charlson co-morbidity index scores).This is an Open Access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0), which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Participants were recruited from general medical wards at The Northern Hospital, Victoria, Australia. Consecutive participants were screened by a recruiting officer and were eligible to participate if 65 years or older and were assessed within 48 hours of admission. Patients were excluded if they had a planned hospital stay of less than 48 hours, severe dysphasia, documented contra-indications to mobilization, were isolated for infection, or if death was imminent. All eligible participants were invited to participate. Consent was obtained within 48 hours of hospital admission. For patients deemed incompetent to consent, this was obtained from the 'person responsible' or next-of-kin. Interpreters were employed when required.Without an accurate mobility instrument, healthcare providers cannot accurately monitor deterioration in mobility and appropriate strategies to maintain physical health may not be triggered. It has been argued that inadequate measures of physical ability, across the spectrum of abilities that exist in older people, presents the most pressing issue in exercise gerontology . It has also been suggested that until such measures exist, our understanding of particular aspects of physical ageing will be limited .Development sample: flow of participants through the study. *3 patients were readmitted during the study period and were tested twice as 'new admissions.'

The Rasch partial credit model was employed to identify misfitting and redundant items and to identify a hierarchy of mobility items ranked from easiest to hardest. Participants were divided into 3 class intervals (ie, 3 groups of patients at different levels of mobility). Item misfit was considered if the chi-square or F statistic probability value was less than the Bonferroni-adjusted a value for multiple testing or the fit residuals were greater than ± 2.
The DEMMI is a 15 item unidimensional measure of mobility. Reliability (MDC90), validity and the minimally clinically important difference (MCID) of the DEMMI were consistent across independent samples. The MDC90 and MCID were 9 and 10 points respectively (on the 100 point Rasch converted interval DEMMI scale). Romberg Test. Der Test prüft die Balance im Stehen.

Correlation between independent assessor DEMMI interval scores was high (Pearson's r = 0.94, 95% CI 0.86 to 0.98). The mean scores for assessors 1 and 2 were 57.19 (sd = 17.07) and 55.05 (sd = 13.77) points respectively. A paired t test indicated no systematic differences between assessors (p = 0.14). Using a pooled standard deviation of 15.51, the standard error of measurement (SEM) was 4.10 and the inter-rater reliability MDC90 was 9.51 points (95% CI 5.04 to 13.32) on the 100 point DEMMI interval scale. This indicates that a patient needs to improve or deteriorate by 10 points or more for a clinician to be 90% confident that a true change in patient condition has occurred. A paired t test indicated no systematic difference between the first and second assessment scores (p = 0.77). Results. We identified 1,365 unique citations. Nine studies (six cohort and three cross-sectional) met full inclusion criteria. Patients (n=2,513) with mean age 75-85 years, admitted to hospital and discharged, underwent these ED evaluations: Timed Up and Go (TUG), Get Up and Go, tandem walk, and a gait assessment Contemporary beliefs are that physical decline is not the natural partner of aging and that people can remain physically able and independent for the duration of their lives. This progressive position is reflected in encouragement of regular exercise and activity in older people [1,2]. However, by systematically reviewing existing instruments, we identified that a broadly applicable instrument that accurately measures and monitors mobility of older adults across the spectrum of health does not exist . In this systematic review, the Elderly Mobility Scale (EMS) , Hierarchical Assessment of Balance and Mobility (HABAM)  and the Physical Performance Mobility Examination (PPME)  were identified as potentially suitable. However, clinimetric evaluation indicated significant limitations with each of these mobility instruments.
National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine 8600 Rockville Pike, Bethesda MD, 20894 USA In the validation study, the pooled dataset showed misfit to the Rasch model due to large sample size as there was no evidence of DIF by time or multidimensionality. Using the t test procedure [24,33], multidimensionality was not identified. Four items (reaching for pen, backward walking, standing on toes and sit to stand no arms) had a positive correlation of 0.3 or greater and three items (walking distance, roll and lie-sit) had a negative correlation of 0.3 or greater with the first residual component. The t test procedure indicated the percentage of individual t tests outside the acceptable range was 4.88% (95% CI -2.0% to 7.0%). This provides further evidence of the unidimensionality of the 15 DEMMI items and therefore does not explain the misfit of the data to the Rasch model. No evidence of local item dependency was identified as there was an absence of correlations in the residuals above a magnitude of 0.3.Prior to conducting Rasch analysis the jog item was removed. This item required clinical experience of medical conditions to determine whether testing should proceed. No participant was able to successfully complete the standing on one leg with eyes closed item in the validation study. Rasch analysis was therefore performed for the remaining 15 items.The Effect Size Index (distribution method)(ESI) and Guyatt's Responsiveness Index (criterion method)(GRI), were selected a priori to calculate measurement responsiveness of the DEMMI, HABAM and BI. Inferential 95% confidence bands were calculated to enable statistical comparison of responsiveness estimates as recommended by Tryon . aVLPL11Xpp Praktické lékařství a geriatrie - předpromoční praxe aVLPL11Xpp. aVLPL11XX Praktické lékařství a geriatrie aVLPL11XX. aVLPP11Xpp Paliativní péče aVLTA02 Jazykový tandem II aVLTA02. aVLTZ0451 Teoretické základy klinické medicíny I - seminář aVLTZ0451. aVLTZ0653 Teoretické základy klinické medicíny III.
Well-proven methods are the walking test with estimation of the walking velocities (spontaneous walking, rapid walking), the timed up and go test, the 5 rise chair test (strength of the hip muscles), the modified Romberg test (including semi-tandem and tandem stand), the Tinetti test, and others. 34 The therapeutic approach is multifaceted with.

Koup, 2 Jacques Boddaert, 5 Delphine Sauce, 1 and Victor Appay 1, Item response thresholds were also studied to investigate the existence of disordered thresholds, that is, response patterns on the rating scale that are not in the expected order. The person separation index (PSI) was reported to provide an indication of the internal consistency (reliability) of the scale by examining the ability of the instrument to discriminate among respondents. Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) - Protocol The Test explained The short physical performance battery (SPPB) is a group of measures that combines the results of the gait speed, chair stand and balance tests (Guralnik et al., 2000). It has been used as
