Objectives: This study aimed to develop and assess the reliability of a visual feedback system intended to improve the patient's perception and the performance of posterior pelvic tilt [PPT] exercises. The feedback setup designed and constructed by the authors included a bed covered with a mat with three embedded force sensors corresponding to the lumbosacral region of the subject lying supine; a data acquisition card to collect and convert data; and two monitors, one above the subject and one on the physician's table. Software was developed to monitor the force exerted vertically upon the force sensors during PPT to be followed both by the physician and the subject.


Enhancing Posterior Pelvic Tilt Exercise By Providing Motivation Inducing Feedback to the Patient
Tomsuk, Emrah; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
The aim of this study is to develop a set-up that can be used by patients performing posterior pelvic tilt exercises to assess and improve the effectiveness of the exercise by visual feedbacks. Lifetime of low back pain prevalence is between %60 and %90. In other words almost everyone encounters the problem of low back pain sometime during their life. Therapeutic and protective exercises are the most important components of treatment for the low back pain. People who have mechanical based low back pain due ...
The evaluation of radiofrequency facet nerve denervation in the patients with lumbar facet syndrome: experience with 493 patients
Mimaroglu, Caner; Mimaroglu Altinay, Beste; Duger, Cevdet; Isbir, Ahmet Cemil; Gursoy, Sinan; KAYGUSUZ, KENAN; Kol, Iclal Ozdemir (2017-12-01)
Objective: Radio frequency thermocoagulation (RFT) is a relatively new modality and has been recommended for treatment of back pain diagnosed as to be originating from spinal facet joints. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of this novel procedure in our patients with lumbar facet syndrome in our department of algology.

Objectives: To identify the factors that affect SF-36 mental component summary (MCS) in patients with adult spinal deformity (ASD) at the time of presentation, and to analyse the effect of SF-36 MCS on clinical outcomes in surgically treated patients. Methods: Prospectively collected data from a multicentric ASD database was analysed for baseline parameters. Then, the same database for surgically treated patients with a minimum of 1-year follow-up was analysed to see the effect of baseline SF-36 MCS on t...
Estimation of Ground Reaction Forces Using Low-Cost Instrumented Forearm Crutches
Seylan, Çağlar; Saranlı, Uluç (2018-06-01)
Instrumented crutches are useful for many rehabilitation tasks, including monitoring the correctness of crutch use, analyzing gait properties for patients with lower-limb impairments, as well as providing sensory data for controlling lower-body robotic orthoses. In this paper, we describe the design and analysis of an instrumented crutch system equipped with low-cost accelerometer and pressure sensors to estimate all components of the ground reaction force (GRF), providing a well-defined and physically mean...
Effects of custom made insole on gait pattern of patients with unilateral displaced intra articular calcaneal fracture evaluation with computerized gait analysis

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate whether use of custom-fabricated insoles improves the gait pattern in patients with displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures. Methods: Fourteen patients (7 female, 7 male; mean age: 39±12 years) and 11 healthy individuals (mean age: 42±13 years) were included in the study. Treatment protocol included conservative treatment involving immobilization, with or without closed reduction, active exercises, wear of a customfabricated insole and prospective fo...
