ObjectiveTo investigate combined effects of robot-assisted training (RAT) and physical therapy versus physical therapy only on balance and gait function of chronic stroke patients after botulinum toxin-A (BoNT-A) treatment.
Investigating pain perception in somatosensory cortex for healthy and fibromyalgia patient populations by using fNIRS
Eken, Aykut; Gökçay, Didem; Kara, Murat; Department of Medical Informatics (2016)
In this study, we investigated the difference in hemodynamic responses between fibromyalgia (FM) and healthy controls via functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) during application of painful stimulus and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). We collected several clinical data (pain threshold, Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) score, Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ) score, pain ratings) before and during the experiment. After data collection, we analyzed it using general linear mode...
Comparison of the Effects of Eccentric, Concentric, and Eccentric-Concentric Isotonic Resistance Training at Two Velocities on Strength and Muscle Hypertrophy
Ünlü, Gürcan; ÇEVİKOL, CAN; MELEKOĞLU, TUBA (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2020-02-01)
Ünlü, G, Çevikol, C, and Melekoğlu, T. Comparison of the effects of eccentric, concentric, and eccentric-concentric isotonic resistance training at two velocities on strength and muscle hypertrophy. J Strength Cond Res 34(2): 337–344, 2020—The aim of this study was to compare the effects of concentric, eccentric, and eccentric-concentric isotonic resistance training at both fast and slow velocities to determine whether contraction modality affects muscle strength and hypertrophy. Forty-one young, healthy ma...

Tansel, Rıfat Baran; SALCI, YAŞAR; Yıldırım, Ahmet; Koçak, Mehmet Settar; Korkusuz, Feza (IOS Press, 2008-01-01)
Objective: To investigate the effects of eccentric hamstring training on strength measures and vertical jumping performance.
Differential efficiency of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in dominant versus nondominant hands in fibromyalgia: placebo-controlled functional near-infrared spectroscopy study
EKEN, AYKUT; KARA, MURAT; BASKAK, BORA; Baltaci, Aysegul; Gökçay, Didem (2018-01-01)
Using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), modulation of hemodynamic responses by transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) during delivery of nociceptive stimulation was investigated in fibromyalgia (FM) patients and healthy controls for both hands. Two experiments were conducted: (1) median nerve stimulation with TENS and (2) painful stimulation using electronic von Frey filaments with TENS/placebo TENS. Mean Delta HbO(2) brain activity was compared across groups and conditions using fa...
