About

Rehabilitation Medicine, often referred to as physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), is the specialized medical field focused on optimizing and restoring functional abilities in individuals with disabilities or injuries. Rehabilitation physicians, or physiatrists, are experts in understanding the complex interplay between physical impairments and their impact on daily life. Their expertise spans from providing comprehensive assessments to designing personalized rehabilitation plans.

The study of rehabilitation medicine involves in-depth knowledge of human anatomy, biomechanics, neurology, and musculoskeletal function. Rehabilitation physicians utilize advanced assessment techniques, therapeutic exercises, assistive technologies, and multidisciplinary approaches to help patients regain independence and enhance their quality of life. By addressing mobility challenges and promoting overall wellness, rehabilitation medicine plays a vital role in enabling individuals to participate fully in society.

Association and New Therapy Perspectives in Post-Stroke Aphasia with Hand Motor Dysfunction
by Shuo Xu, Chengfang Liang, Shaofan Chen, Zhiming Huang and Haoqing Jiang

Post-stroke aphasia and hand movement dysfunction are common and disabling conditions. Observations indicate that most patients with post-stroke aphasia also suffer from hand movement dysfunction. Research in human evolution, behavior, and neuroscience has revealed a strong connection between language function and hand-motor function, with the latter playing a critical role in language use. Consequently, there is an urgent need for the development of new, comprehensive, and efficient rehabilitation methods for post-stroke aphasia that is accomp...anied by hand dysfunction. One promising approach involves investigating the shared neural networks between language and hand function as a foundation for novel treatment methods. This article aims to review the current state of clinical research on comprehensive treatments for stroke-induced aphasia and hand dysfunction, as well as to explore their underlying neural mechanisms. The results of this study may provide a valuable reference for the advancement of treatment technologies that effectively address both dysfunctions and enhance clinical outcomes.

Exploring Upper Limb Kinematics in Limited Vision Conditions: Preliminary Insights from 3D Motion Analysis and IMU Data
by Artemis Zarkadoula, Themistoklis Tsatalas, George Bellis, Paris Papaggelos, Evangelia Vlahogianni, Stefanos Moustos, Eirini Koukourava and Dimitrios Tsaopoulos

This study examined upper limb kinematics under simulated visually impaired conditions. By investigating how upper limb movements adapt in these circumstances, we aimed to gain insights that may prove valuable for both healthy populations and those with clinical conditions. Data, including 3D marker-based motion capture and accelerometer readings, were collected from seven healthy volunteers walking on a treadmill at 1.5 m/s under two conditions: without glasses (NG) and with stroboscopic glasses (G). Each walking condition lasted 2 minutes, an...d two 10-second recordings were analyzed from the midpoint of each session. Contrary to our hypothesis, simulated visual impairment with stroboscopic eyewear at 6Hz did not statistically affect upper limb kinematics, specifically in terms of wrist acceleration and hand distance in the frontal plane. Future research should explore varied visual impairment conditions, extend task durations, and investigate the relationship between subjective gait difficulties and biomechanical data.
