Objective: The aim of our study was to investigate how systemic inflammation relates to sarcopenia and its impact on functional outcomes in the recovery stages of stroke. Methods: A retrospective cohort study was performed in consecutive patients admitted to convalescent rehabilitation wards following stroke. Patients with acute or chronic high-grade inflammatory diseases were excluded. Systemic inflammation was evaluated using the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS). Sarcopenia was defined as a loss of skeletal muscle mass and decreased muscle strength, with the cut-off values set by the Asian Working Group for Sarcopenia. The primary outcome was the motor domain of the Functional Independence Measure (FIM-motor). Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to determine whether mGPS was associated with sarcopenia and FIM-motor at discharge. Results: The study included 204 patients (mean age 74.1 years, 109 men). mGPS scores of 0, 1, and 2 were assigned to 149 (73.0%), 40 (19.6%), and 13 (6.4%) patients, respectively. Sarcopenia was diagnosed in 81 (39.7%) patients and was independently associated with stroke history (odds ratio [OR] 1.890, P=0.027), premorbid modified Rankin scale (OR 1.520, P=0.040), body mass index (OR 0.858, P=0.022), and mGPS score (OR 1.380, P=0.021). Furthermore, the mGPS score was independently associated with sarcopenia (OR 1.380, P=0.021) and FIM-motor at discharge (β=−0.131, P=0.031). Conclusion: Systemic inflammation is closely associated with sarcopenia and poor functional outcomes in the recovery stage of stroke. Early detection of systemic inflammation and sarcopenia can help promote both adequate exercise and nutritional support to restore muscle mass and improve post-stroke functional recovery.

Background: Sarcopenic dysphagia is caused by decreased muscle mass and muscle weakness in the swallowing muscles that occurs because of sarcopenia. The key to treating sarcopenic dysphagia is combined therapy with rehabilitation and aggressive nutrition management. However, to our knowledge, no studies based in a home medical care setting have yet been published. Case: A 72-year-old man with Parkinson’s disease developed sarcopenia and possible sarcopenic dysphagia during hospitalization for drug adjustment. At discharge, the patient’s body weight was 39.0 kg (−33.8%/4 months, body mass index: 15.3 kg/m2), the Barthel Index was 45, Functional Oral Intake Scale was level 4, and Dysphagia Severity Scale was 4. Sarcopenia was confirmed by a calf circumference of 23.8 cm, a handgrip strength of 22 kg, and a gait speed of 0.5 m/s. The patient was diagnosed with sarcopenic dysphagia, according to the consensus diagnostic criteria for sarcopenic dysphagia. After the patient was discharged, he underwent a combination of dysphagia rehabilitation, daily activity training, and aggressive nutrition management, which started from 1200 kcal/day and reached a maximum of 2800 kcal/day. Four months after discharge, the patient’s swallowing function returned to normal (Functional Oral Intake Scale: 7, Dysphagia Severity Scale: 6) and his weight increased by 31% (body mass index: 20.1 kg/m2). Increases in muscle mass (calf circumference: 32 cm), muscle strength (handgrip strength: 34 kg), physical function (gait speed: 1 m/s), and activities of daily living (Barthel Index: 90) indicated recovery from sarcopenia. Discussion: Sarcopenic dysphagia may be a complication of Parkinson’s disease, and home-based combined therapy with rehabilitation and aggressive nutrition management may be effective for treating this condition.

Objective: The success of a client-centred practice depends on the relationship between the client and therapist and on their ability to make constructive decisions together, particularly in the field of occupational therapy. The aim of this study was to develop a Occupational Therapy Collaborative Relationship Scale (OTCRS) to measure the quality of such interaction. Methods: This work included constructing a draft questionnaire and testing its validity and reliability. A Rasch analysis was applied to determine its validity, and several tests were used to confirm its internal consistency. Results: After reviewing more than 130 scientific papers and books, we built explicit selection criteria for issues to be addressed in this instrument, and we developed 40 questions to be included. These were analysed using a standard content validation process and a Rasch analysis to examine confirmation validity. A nine-item scale was finalised for testing (OTCRS-9). This review process revealed the validity, high internal consistency, and item/person separation reliability of OTCRS-9. Conclusion: This study presents only the initial phase of scale development. As suggested by the Consensus-based Standards for the Selection of Health Measurement Instruments (COSMIN), the OTCRS-9 score should be tested further for validity and reliability and should also be conducted in subjects of other ethnicities to improve its generalizability.

Background: Dysphagia occurs often after oral cancer surgery. However, no case of dysphagia in combination with cerebral hemorrhage, tongue defect, and sarcopenia has been reported. We describe the case of a 70-year-old man with dysphagia associated with a cerebral hemorrhage, tongue defect, and sarcopenia who received rehabilitation nutrition and underwent glottal closure. Case: At age 48 years, the patient had the left part of his tongue removed because of cancer. Twenty-two years later, he developed dysphagia and right hemiplegia after a cerebral hemorrhage. The patient was diagnosed with sarcopenia based on a low left handgrip strength (10 kg) and reduced calf circumference (26.5 cm). The patient’s Functional Oral Intake Scale (FOIS) score was 1, and his tongue muscle mass indicated atrophy, making the maximum tongue pressure difficult to measure. Palatal augmentation prostheses (PAP) were made to increase swallowing and tongue pressures, and nutritional intake was changed from nasal tube feeding to a gastric fistula. Nutritional intake was increased to 2400 kcal/day and protein intake to 96 g/day. Although rehabilitation nutrition using PAP improved the patient’s nutritional status, the dysphagia did not improve, and therefore he underwent glottal closure. This resulted in a weight gain of 13.7 kg and increased tongue muscle strength and volume. The patient’s FOIS score increased to 7 (i.e., total oral diet with no restrictions) at 5 months after discharge. Discussion: Glottic closure surgery may be useful for improving oral ingestion, nutritional status, and activities of daily living.Background: Dysphagia occurs often after oral cancer surgery.

Background: Virtual reality (VR) technology has been recently introduced in a variety of clinical settings, such as physical, occupational, cognitive, and psychological rehabilitation or training. However, the clinical efficacy of VR rehabilitation compared with traditional training techniques remains to be elucidated. Case: A 90-year-old man underwent VR-guided, dual-task, body trunk balance training in the sitting position using a newly developed medical device (mediVR KAGURA, mediVR, Inc., Toyonaka, Japan) after his physical activity level had plateaued. The patient had difficulty in walking outside the hospital even after having undergone traditional physical training. VR-guided training was performed for 40 min every weekday for 2 weeks. Trunk balance training was performed using reaching tasks, and cognitive stimulation was designed to emulate the cognitive processing involved when walking in a city or town. After the VR-guided training, the patient’s 6-min walk distance improved from 430 m to 500 m even though there had been no improvement in muscle strength of the lower extremities. Furthermore, the patient could successfully walk outside the hospital without falling or colliding with obstacles. Discussion: It is noteworthy that the patient’s walking ability improved further by the addition of VR-guided, dual-task, trunk balance training carried out in the sitting position. This finding suggests several possible new approaches to overcoming walking disability. Walking requires lower-extremity muscle strength, postural balance, and dual-task processing. Currently, no effective quantitative methods have been identified for postural balance and dual-task training with the patient in the sitting position. Herein, we discuss the possible advantages of VR-guided rehabilitation over traditional training methods.

Objective: The ability to walk is one of the most important basic functional activities of daily living, and the number of patients with walking disability who need rehabilitation is increasing worldwide. The purpose of this first-in-man study was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of an off-label, tailor-made, dual-task rehabilitation program for body trunk balance using the mediVR01 system (mediVR, Inc. Osaka, Japan), which incorporates virtual reality (VR) and three-dimensional tracking technologies. Methods: We prospectively enrolled 31 healthy volunteers to take part in the trial (Trial Registration UMIN000029659). After an assessment of body trunk balance, a tailor-made, dual-task, rehabilitation training program lasting 10–15 min was provided. The primary endpoint was the postprocedural number of simulator sickness questionnaire (SSQ) symptoms. The secondary endpoints were adverse events and satisfaction with the program. Results: The median age of participants was 68 years, with 67.7% being elderly (>65 years) and 54.8% being male. The number of SSQ symptoms immediately after the rehabilitation programs significantly increased from 0 (interquartile range 0–0) to 0 (0–1.5) (P=0.009), with a significant difference between the young and elderly participants (P-interaction<0.001). The most frequent symptom was sweating (22.6%), followed by fatigue (19.4%). All participants successfully completed the rehabilitation programs without significant adverse events such as fall or injuries. Moreover, all participants considered the VR rehabilitation programs to be enjoyable, and 93.5% of participants reported a sense of achievement. Group attendance was associated with higher levels of satisfaction (P=0.049). Conclusion: The tailor-made, dual-task rehabilitation training programs for body trunk balance using VR and three-dimensional tracking technologies were safe and feasible even for elderly participants.

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect and risk management of early mobilization in the intensive care unit (ICU) with multidisciplinary collaboration and daily goal planning.Methods: Rehabilitation of ICU patients in our hospital between April 1, 2019, and September 30, 2019, was investigated retrospectively. The following factors were evaluated: age and sex of the subjects; diseases; the total number of early mobilization therapy sessions done at a lowered goal level; the clinical course of the step-down sessions; reasons for lowering goal levels that corresponded to the cancellation criteria from the officially issued guidelines of the Japanese Association of Rehabilitation Medicine, the expert consensus on ICU, or other reasons for step down; and the rate of planned goals that were achieved.Results: Of the 1908 overall rehabilitation sessions carried out during the period of investigation, 9.6% had the planned level lowered; changes in vital signs accounted for 54.6% of the reasons for lowering the level. Of the step-down sessions, 92.3% corresponded with the cancellation criteria of rehabilitation. Early mobilization in the ICU in accordance with daily goal planning via collaboration within the multidisciplinary team during rounds was accomplished in 90.4% of sessions. No serious mobilization-related adverse events were noted during the study period.Conclusion: Early mobilization should be performed with daily goal planning by a multidisciplinary team during rounds and should be governed by the cancellation criteria of rehabilitation.

Fall prevention is one of the major issues in health care in our aging society. The aim of this review is to provide useful information for researchers and practitioners who plan to start fall prevention programs for elderly persons with various risk levels and in different settings. Fifty-three randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and several meta-analyses retrieved with extensive literature search formed the basis for this review. Available evidence suggests that several preventive strategies have been proven beneficial in fall prevention. For the community-dwelling elderly, two RCTs and one meta-analysis demonstrated that an individually tailored home exercise program provided by nurses or physical therapists could reduce the rate of falls and injuries. One RCT suggested that Tai Chi Chuan might have a high potential to reduce falls. Two large RCTs indicated that programs including group exercise classes could also reduce the number of fallers. For people with known risk factors living in the community, three RCTs showed that home visits to address multiple risk factor modification were an effective way to reduce falls. One RCT with a relatively small sample showed that psychotropic withdrawal reduced falls in elderly persons taking psychotropic medication. A subgroup analysis of one RCT showed that home hazard reduction at hospital discharge reduced subsequent falls in patients with a past history of falls. However, more evidence is needed to prove its effectiveness, because this effect was also observed outside of homes. Dual chamber pacemaker for elderly persons with hypersensitive carotid sinus, who were detected when investigated for undiagnosed falls, markedly reduced subsequent falls with or without syncope. In institutional settings, two RCTs showed that comprehensive risk assessment and modification reduced the rate of falls and fractures or the number of recurrent fallers. Three RCTs performed in hospital settings failed to show any effectiveness. However, a meta-analysis of 3 controlled trials and 7 cohort studies with a historical control suggested that fall prevention program in hospitals could be promising. There are some methodological problems in fall prevention research such as the definition, measures, and monitoring method of falls, inadequate sample size and a short follow-up period. In the future, we need research based on strong and comprehensive methodological designs.

Objective: This study aimed to characterize reaching movements of the paretic arm in different directions within the reachable workspace in post-stroke patients. Methods: A total of 12 post-stroke patients participated in this study. Each held a ball with a tracking marker and performed back-and-forth reaching movements from near the middle of the body to one of two targets in front of them located on the ipsilateral and contralateral sides of the arm performing the movement. We recorded and analyzed the trajectories of the tracking marker. The stability of arm movements was evaluated using areas and minimum Feret diameters to assess the trajectories of both the paretic and non-paretic arms. The speed of the arm movement was also calculated. Results: For the paretic arm, contralateral movement was more impaired than ipsilateral movement, whereas for the non-paretic arm, no difference was observed between the directions. The maximum speed of the contralateral movement was significantly slower than that of the ipsilateral movement in both the paretic and non-paretic arms. Conclusion: The paretic arm shows direction-specific instability in movement toward the contralateral side of the arm.

The second part of the review discusses some important issues associated with fall prevention and future perspectives on fall related research. Currently, many kinds of interventions are available for the treatment of patients suffering from osteoporosis, i. e. nutritional supports, medications acting on bone metabolism and exercise. However, a series of meta-analyses showed that only alendronate and risedronate have been proven to prevent non-vertebral fractures in persons with osteoporosis. Anaerobic and weight bearing exercises are known to have a positive effect on the bone mineral density of the spine. There is, however, no reliable data for fracture prevention with exercise alone. Also, the synergistic effect of a combination of these interventions has not been clearly proven. Although there is evidence that the use of hip protectors in institutional settings reduces the rate of hip fractures, this approach faces the problem of patient acceptance and compliance. Psychosocial problems related to falls such as fear of falling, post-fall syndrome and cost-effectiveness of the prevention programs are becoming increasingly important in elderly health care, but little evidence of such has been reported in the literature. In future perspectives on fall relared research, a theory-based approach for fall prevention needs to be included to explore more effective interventions. We must also consider the double-edged effects of interventions that may increase certain fall risk factors while reducing another. Especially, the relation between activities and incidence of falls is important to consider, because increased activity itself may increase the chance of falls. When applying exercise or rehabilitative approaches, the interaction between falls, activity levels, frailty, and injury must be studied much more carefully. In addition, one has to always think about what is the true aim of a program, because the aim of fall prevention goes beyond preventing falls. Although some research has so far been conducted in Europe and the U. S. A. by researchers and practitioners in various fields, the quantity and quality of fall prevention research are still lacking and the available data is therefore insufficient to suggest appropriate decision-making in clinical practice. Especially in Japan, there have been only a few RCTs to determine the effectiveness of fall prevention programs. Because there are many differences in the characteristics of our native population and health care systems vs those of Europe and the U. S. A., it is a critical issue for us to establish fall prevention programs suited to Japanese population and health care system.

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the quality of reporting of systematic reviews published in Japanese in the field of physical therapy. Methods: The study design was a bibliometric analysis of systematic reviews. Two Japanese physical therapy journals (Physical Therapy Japan and Rigakuryoho Kagaku) were analysed using J-STAGE. The inclusion criterion was that articles were systematic reviews. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) checklist was used to score the reporting quality of eligible systematic reviews. The quality assessment was performed by two reviewers independently. Results: Of the 1578 articles identified, thirteen articles were included in this study. The median score of checklist items adequately adhered to across the included studies was 12 (range, 7–17). None of the studies adhered to the structured summary or additional analysis PRISMA items. The intention of bias assessment across studies was reported in only three studies (23%), and only two of these three reported the results. Conclusions: The reporting quality of systematic reviews published in Japanese physical therapy journals was suboptimal. Therefore, readers should critically appraise the contents of systematic reviews. It is recommended that journals should strictly require their authors to adhere to reporting guidelines.

Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the clinical characteristics of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients, including risk factors for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, and to evaluate the need for rehabilitation to prevent pulmonary embolism.Methods: A retrospective medical record review was conducted of patients admitted to the study hospital with COVID-19 between April 2 and April 23, 2020. The clinical characteristics and blood test results of patients with no history on admission of oral anticoagulant use were evaluated to assess the importance of inflammation and clotting function as risk factors for pulmonary embolism.Results: A total of 51 patients with COVID-19 were admitted during the study period. Their median age was 54.0 years (range: 41–63 years) and 38 of 51 (74.5%) were men. The most common comorbidities in men were diabetes (9/38, 23.7%) and hypertension (13/38, 34.2%). On admission, white blood cell counts were normal in both sexes, whereas C-reactive protein and hemostatic marker levels, except for the activated partial thromboplastin time, were significantly higher in men. Moreover, C-reactive protein and hemostatic marker levels were significantly higher in patients that required invasive ventilation. Two patients were diagnosed with acute pulmonary embolism, neither of whom required invasive ventilation.Conclusions: Hypercoagulability and hyperinflammation were observed in COVID-19 patients, especially in men with high oxygen demand. We recommend anticoagulant therapy and early rehabilitation intervention to prevent pulmonary embolism in COVID-19 patients.

本研究は,内側広筋優位の強化を目的とした大腿四頭筋等尺性収縮訓練について調べたものである.5種類の大腿四頭筋等尺性収縮訓練について,健常者群15名(15肢),廃用性筋萎縮がある患者群11名(15肢)における内側広筋,外側広筋,大腿直筋の筋活動を表面筋電図積分波形の最大波高で評価した.その結果,従来的な開運動鎖での四頭筋セッティングに比べ,足部回外位の足底接地で股内転等尺性収縮と同期して行うセッティングにおいて,外側広筋に対する内側広筋の比(VM/VL)は高値を示した.膝伸展等尺性収縮訓練では,股内転等尺性収縮との共同運動を足部回外位の閉運動鎖で行うことにより,内側広筋の収縮が外側広筋より優位となる.

Objectives: Medications with anticholinergic or sedative effects induce impaired cognitive and physical performances. The aim of this study was to evaluate the associations of anticholinergic and sedative drug burden with recovery of physical function and activities of daily living in patients admitted to a Japanese rehabilitation hospital after cerebrovascular accidents. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients aged 18 years or older who had undergone the inpatient rehabilitation program for cerebrovascular disease in Nerima Ken-ikukai Hospital. Patients who did not complete the rehabilitation program because of acute unexpected changes of physical or psychological condition or the need for surgical procedures were excluded. The primary outcome was recovery of activities of daily living as measured by the motor and cognitive subscores of the Functional Independence Measure. The secondary outcome was recovery of physical function as assessed by the 10-m walk test and the Berg balance scale. Multiple Cox proportional hazard regression analyses were conducted to calculate hazard ratios with 95% confidence intervals for the outcome measures. Results: Of 122 patients included in the study, 81 (66%) were exposed to anticholinergics and sedatives. Patients’ age, body mass index, and average daily drug burden during hospitalization were independently associated with achieving the cutoff Functional Independence Measure–motor subscore. Patients’ age and average daily drug burden during hospitalization were independently associated with achieving the Berg balance scale cut-off score. Conclusions: Our study of Japanese patients who were transferred from acute stroke care hospitals to a rehabilitation facility identified the drug burden of anticholinergics and sedatives as an independent factor associated with the time to recovery of activities of daily living and postural balance.
