Prediction of maximum oxygen uptake through incremental exercise testing using ventilometry: a cross-sectional study
Fernando Policarpo Barbosa, Paulo Eugênio Silva, Andréa Carmen Guimarães, Carlos Soares Pernambuco, Estélio Henrique Dantas

  • The high operational cost of implementing CPET hampers its use.

  • Ventilometry combined to ergometric test can be used for estimating V˙O2max.

  • We analyzed the reliability of ventilometry for estimating V˙O2max.

  • We presented two reliable equations for estimating V˙O2max.

Sedentary behavior: barriers and facilitators among older adults after hip fracture surgery. A qualitative study
Suzana Albuquerque de Moraes, Ecleide Cunico Furlanetto, Natalia Aquaroni Ricci, Monica Rodrigues Perracini

  • Physical complaints are not the only barriers to reduce sedentary behavior.

  • This population also experiences poor accessibility and lack of social support.

  • Individual barriers like demotivation and self-ageist stereotypes also emerged.

  • Physical therapists should have a comprehensive approach to manage sedentary behavior.

  • Understand barriers and facilitators may help design future clinical trials.

Baseline characteristics did not identify people with low back pain who respond best to a Movement System Impairment-Based classification treatment
Daniel Camara Azevedo, Paulo Henrique Ferreira, Henrique de Oliveira Santos, Daniel Ribeiro Oliveira, Joao Victor Leite de Souza, Leonardo Oliveira Pena Costa

  • Participant's characteristics did not identify people who respond best to MSI treatment.

  • Patient's characteristics should not be used to choose between both treatments.

  • Sample size was not determined to detect potential treatment effect modifiers.

Effect of combined interval training on the cardiorespiratory fitness in heart failure patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Incare Correa De Jesus, Francisco José de Menezes Junior, Paulo Cesar Barauce Bento, Astrid Wiens, Jorge Mota, Neiva Leite

  • Interval training is an interesting strategy in increasing aerobic capacity.

  • In patients with heart failure the use of combined interval training may effective in increasing VO2peak.

  • Interval training combined with resistance training can maximize treatment time.

  • Maximize treatment time is an aspect that has been important in the choice of interventions.

  • Training combined showed more effective in improving VO2peak in patients with heart failure.

Identification of gait events in children with spastic cerebral palsy: comparison between the force plate and algorithms
Rejane Vale Gonçalves, Sérgio Teixeira Fonseca, Priscila Albuquerque Araújo, Vanessa Lara Araújo, Tais Martins Barboza, Gabriela Andrade Martins, Marisa Cotta Mancini

  • Detecting events occurring during the gait cycle is essential for gait analysis.

  • The precision of algorithms varies according to the children's gait pattern.

  • The algorithm proposed by Ghoussayni et al. is robust for detecting gait events in children with CP.

An observational study of self-reported sedentary behaviour in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and bronchiectasis
Zoe J. McKeough, Sarah L. Large, Lissa M. Spencer, Sonia W.M. Cheng, Renae J. McNamara

  • Sedentary behaviour is characterised by a seated or reclined posture with a low energy expenditure of 1.0–1.5 metabolic equivalents (METS) during waking hours.

  • Too much sitting behaviour is associated with health deficits in the adult population.

  • There has been less examination of sedentary behaviours in people with COPD and bronchiectasis.

  • There was no difference in the high sedentary time between people with COPD and bronchiectasis.

  • No significant associations between sedentary time and functional performance or health-related quality of life were present.

Influence of an unloader brace on lower limb electromyographic activity in individuals with predominant lateral osteoarthritis after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
Harvi F. Hart, Matthew Holt, Adam I. Semciw, Natalie J. Collins, Kay M. Crossley

  • Unloader brace did not change co-contraction of agonist and antagonist muscles.

  • Unloader brace produced changes in gluteal and gastrocnemius timing and amplitude, however, the clinical relevance is unclear.

  • There were no differences between adjusted and unadjusted brace conditions.

Personal and organizational characteristics associated with evidence-based practice reported by Brazilian physical therapists providing service to people with stroke: a cross-sectional mail survey
Lucas Rodrigues Nascimento, Maria Oliveira Paixão Fernandes, Luci Fuscaldi Teixeira-Salmela, Aline Alvim Scianni

  • Brazilian physical therapists had positive attitudes regarding evidence-based practice.

  • Personal characteristics were poorly associated with evidence-based practice.

  • Organizational characteristics could be the main barriers for evidence-based practice.

  • Potential strategies to improve evidence-based practice should include mentoring and research-related activities.

Different weekly frequencies of Pilates did not accelerate pain improvement in patients with chronic low back pain
Maria Liliane da Silva, Gisela Cristiane Miyamoto, Katherinne Ferro Moura Franco, Yuri Rafael dos Santos Franco, Cristina Maria Nunes Cabral

  • Different weekly frequencies of Pilates did not accelerate pain improvement.

  • Most patients reduced pain in 30% and 50% after the first week of treatment.

  • Most patients reported complete pain improvement after the last week of treatment.
