Who You See Matters: Stroke Patients Benefit More From Observing Their Own Hand Movements During Therapy

Japanese scientists at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) have found that for stroke patients, observing their own hand movements in a video-assisted therapy - as opposed to someone else's hand - could enhance brain activity and speed up rehabilitation.

Their findings were first made available online in May and published in the July 7, 2019 issue of IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering.

A stroke is caused by obstruction of blood flow to the brain and can leave a patient paralyzed. Brain plasticity, where a healthy region of the brain fulfills the function of a damaged region of the brain, is a key factor in the recovery of motor functions caused by stroke. Studies have shown that sensory stimulation of the neural pathways that control the sense of touch can promote brain plasticity, essentially rewiring the brain to regain movement and s

Lower Back Pain? Self-Administered Acupressure Could Help

A recent study finds that acupressure, a traditional Chinese medicine technique, can improve chronic pain symptoms in the lower back.

“Acupressure is similar to acupuncture, but instead of needles, pressure is applied with a finger, thumb or device to specific points on the body,” says Susan Murphy, ScD, OTR, an associate professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Michigan Medicine and lead author of the study.

Murphy says that while acupressure has been previously studied — and found to be beneficial — in people with cancer-related or osteoarthritis pain, there are few studies that have examined acupressure in people with back pain.

In the study, published in Pain Medicine, the research team randomly assigned 67 participants with chronic low back pain into three groups: relaxing acupressure, stimulating acupressure or usual care.

“Relaxing acupressure is thought to be effe

Emerging Wound Care Therapy Now Heals Limbs Previously Scheduled For Amputation

AVANTI Technologies Inc. (AVANTI) nursing team supports Los Angeles medical device company, Numotech Inc., to address one of health care's biggest challenges - nonhealing wounds that up until now often led to limb amputations. The Numobag® Kit, a wound treatment solution proven to heal severe wounds in record time, was utilized by AVANTI's dedicated nurses to save an elderly patient's limb which was scheduled for amputation. One major result is the significant elimination of many amputations representing both an enormous and growing costly healthcare problem in the United Sates and throughout the world. See the Numobag® website: (https://www.numobag.com).

A recent clinical study entitled "A Disruptive Treatment to Prevent Amputation and Enhance Limb Salvage in an Elderly Patient" profiles a 95-year-old patient presented with a stage IV chronic and advance infected wound on her lower lef
