    (Takano, et. al 2015). A randomized controlled trial of 64 patients with dropped foot using a novel FES device (Odstock dropped foot simulator) compared to traditional physical therapy showed significantly reduced median frequency of falls in the FES group (8) compared to traditional PT (18) (Esnouf, Taylor, Mann, and Barrett 2010). Patients with chronic spastic paresis involving muscles innervated by the peroneal nerve underwent a trial of wireless accelerometer-triggered functional electrical stimulation and were found to have improved ankle and knee kinematics compared to patients receiving conventional physical therapy. Parameters that improved relative to controls included maximal knee flexion and passive ankle dorsiflexion, as well as ankle dorsiflexion velocity. Patients also saw a 15% reduction in plantar flexion spasticity grade (Gheidra, et. al, 2016). In a case-study of a multiple sclerosis (MS) patient with chronic lower extremity spasticity, FES applied to the thighs to induce cycling motions reported decreased spasticity after 30-minute FES sessions (Krauze, Szeci, and Straube 2007). In the upper extremity, a randomized controlled trial of pediatric patients with chronic hand hemiparesis had significant increases in Box and Block test scoring, with a mean difference between traditional physical therapy controls of 2.8% and maintained these improvements 6 months post-treatment (Knutson, Gunzler, Wilson, and Chae, 2016). An individual case-control study in…

    When the ankle is bending upward, it is in a state called Dorsiflexion. While in Dorsiflexion, the ankle typically ten degrees of movement, although more flexible individuals may experience up to thirty degrees of movement. When the ankle joint is bending down, it is in a state called Plantarflexion. During Plantarflexion, the ankle typically has about twenty degrees of movement, although more flexible individuals can experience up to fifty degrees of movement. One might be inclined to think…

    distal phalanx of the big toe. It is the prime mover in dorsiflexion of the big toe and assists in dorsiflexion of the foot. The extensor digitorum longus (synergist) originates in the lateral area of the tibia, proximal two-thirds of the medial surface of the fibula and adjacent interosseous membrane. It splits in to four tendons that attach to the proximal base of the dorsal surface of the middle and distal phalanges. This muscle is the prime mover in dorsiflexion of the toes but assists in…

    In this article, different subtalar joint positioning during gastrocnemius stretching was investigated to conclude wether or not the position of the subtalar joint had significant effect on dorsiflexion ROM. . Patients with ankle oversee injuries, and patients with limited dorsiflexion ROM, are often prescribed stretches for the gastrocnemius calf muscle as part of their rehab program. (JAT, NATA). The idea behind this is that the tight calf muscles may have an negative effect on reaching…

    Synovial joint Angles of the Hip Hailey Rubin and Angie Allen Purpose: To analyze the full range of motion of the hip flexion and extension by measuring the joint angles. Methods: We decided to use the Hudl Technique app to film hip in a squatting motion from fully extended to full flexion of the hip. The Technique app made it possible to pause the video, allowing the ability to measure the angle from the top of the Iliac crest to the knee to the ankle. We choose to record in front of the dark…
