The broad functional reach
of iMAL solution was the key reason for it being selected ahead of ICS BANKS ISLAMIC.
Significant benefits were observed for gait outcomes of speed, the two- and six-minute walk test, functional and mobility outcomes of the Timed Up & Go test (how long it takes a person to get up from a chair, walk a certain distance, then walk back to the chair and sit down) and Functional Reach
tests (how far a person can reach before he/she loses balance) and the Berg Balance Scale, which assesses multiple aspects of balance via a questionnaire.
The Functional Reach
(FR) test aims to assess recoverable balance.
The demographics were taken through standardized and valid assessment tools include Berg Balance Scale and Functional Reach
Regarding the association between the reaching movement and postural control, the functional reach
test developed by Duncan et al.
9) reported that muscle strength test and performance measures that consist of balance test, functional reach
test, limits of stability, the 8 Foot Up and Go, and "walking around two cones test" are helpful in assessing the risk of falls in the elderly, there is still inconsistency in the knowledge and application of physical fitness test in determining the risk of falls in the elderly population.
Balance and agility were assessed using the 8-foot Up and Go Test [up and go] (Rikli and Jones, 1999) and Functional Reach
Test [functional reach
] (Duncan et al.
In addition, the Functional Reach
Test, a reliable (intraclass correlation coefficient, 0.
Evaluation of postural balance of the participating subjects was performed using Functional Test extent of upper limb (Updated)--The Modified Functional Reach
Other studies using similar videoconferencing equipment have demonstrated that telerehabilitation assessments of Functional Reach
, the European Stroke Scale, and the Functioning Everyday with a Wheelchair-Capacity can be performed accurately compared with face-to-face encounters [18-19].
The tai chi group also performed better than the stretching group in all secondary outcomes and outperformed the resistance-training group in stride length and functional reach
Participants all showed an improvement in response time; however, the correlation between their functional reach
scores and virtual reality performance was moderate.
