Example text

In this situation, the therapist wanted the patient to concentrate on the task at first to bring in somatosensory awareness and sensory-motor planning. Once the patient demonstrated that the program was present, the therapist needed to distract the patient's attention on the walking motor activity and allow the motor system to practice running the program. In order for the client to be truly successful in this new variation of ambulation, she had to practice it as a feed-forward automatic task.

Decreased. SV is influenced by ventricular filling (preload), ventricular contractility and peripheral vascular resistance (afterload). Ventricular filling occurs early during diastole and is rapid and mostly passive, with the last part of filling attributed to atrial contractions. However, with aging, a prolonged contraction-relaxation time and decreased myocardial compliance (because of the increase in nondistensible fibrous tissue) cause a greater dependency on slower, active atrial contraction for the majority of diastolic filling (see Fig.

The sensory system had changed, as had the posture, balance and motor programming needed to ambulate with a prosthetic device. The inherent sensory feedback necessary to create new programs had to be evaluated. The sensory physiological mechanisms may have been progressively deteriorating because of the diabetes. However, if new learning could occur and new programs written, this elderly individual might be able to run the programs, even with progressive sensory deterioration. Thus, the therapist had to work with the patient in using a prosthesis to regain normal gait programming.
