(2014), Effects of adding Biofeedback training to active exercises after total knee arthroplasty.

2 The title is concise and clear. It addresses the effect of biofeedback training to active exercises after total knee arthroplasty to a particular group of people “ older adult in a community setting”

3. The introduction caught my attention in that it talked of how an electrical stimulation added to exercise will help improve or gain full voluntary active movement of the quadriceps muscles in patients with total knee arthroplasty (This

A theoretical / conceptual framework is used. It is based on a setting of 45 patients comprising of both men and women of ages between 58years 67years of age. These patients were suffering from osteoarthritis (OA) these patients had body mass index < 30.0 and they did not participate in any sporting activities but undertook moderate activity independently. The angle of knee flexion was set at 75 degree, which is the angle at which pain is free during flexion. An electrical stimulation through two electrodes was introduced with current of frequency of 100HZ. The theoretical and conceptual framework used was appropriate because it met the assumption of the …show more content…
It is an experimental designed because it is used to control or comparing two samples of a study.
11.The setting was made up of 45 patients (25 females and 20 males) and their ages ranged from 58 to 67 years. They were selected from the Nasser Institute and AL HelaL Hospital in Cairo-Egypt. This setting was divided into two groups 1 and 2. Group 1 consist of 21 patients (8 female and 13 males) participated in an active exercise training program. Group 2 consist of 24 patients (15males and 9 females) were applied EMG biofeedback training in addition to the active exercise training program. This sample size was not adequate for the study because it was to small. A bigger size could have given a better result.
12.The data collection was a sample of randomly selected patients from Nasser Institute and Al Helal Hospital in Cairo Egypt. This sample was made up of 25 females and 20 males and their ages between 58 and 67 years. The instruments used were Biodex system, 3 Isokinetic dynamometer, used to evaluate quadriceps muscle torque and voluntary, and a Uniphy Phyaction neuromuscular stimulator use to stimulate the quadriceps muscle during voluntary activation. The instruments were totally validated and reliable because no one was injured in the
