    Mohammed Al Jaffal*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.8, pp. 881-890, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.028982

    Abstract Many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience delays in the development of social and communications skills, which can limit their opportunities in higher education and employment resulting in an overall negative impact to their quality of life. This systematic review identifies 15 studies that explored the effectiveness of Video-Based Interventions (VBIs) for those with ASD during the critical years of adolescence and young adulthood. The 15 studies described herein found this to be an effective intervention for this population for the improvement of their vocational, daily living, and academic skills. In addition, VBIs allow for the maintenance and generalization… More >

    TMCA-Net: A Compact Convolution Network for Monitoring Upper Limb Rehabilitation

    Qi Liu1, Zihao Wu1,*, Xiaodong Liu2

    Journal on Internet of Things, Vol.4, No.3, pp. 169-181, 2022, DOI:10.32604/jiot.2022.040368

    Abstract This study proposed a lightweight but high-performance convolution network for accurately classifying five upper limb movements of arm, involving forearm flexion and rotation, arm extension, lumbar touch and no reaction state, aiming to monitoring patient’s rehabilitation process and assist the therapist in elevating patient compliance with treatment. To achieve this goal, a lightweight convolution neural network TMCA-Net (Time Multiscale Channel Attention Convolutional Neural Network) is designed, which combines attention mechanism, uses multi-branched convolution structure to automatically extract feature information at different scales from sensor data, and filters feature information based on attention mechanism. In particular, channel separation convolution is used… More >

    Signal Processing and AI-based Assessment of Rehabilitation Exercises for Diastasis Recti Abdominis

    R. Karthik1, R. Menaka1,*, P. Ponmathi2, Daehan Won3, P. Vinitha Joshy1, J. G. Aravindan4, S. Harshavardhan4, K. V. S. D. Aashish kumar4, R. Akileshkumar4

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 333-348, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.037661

    Abstract Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA) is the separation of abdominal recti muscles which occurs in women during their pregnancy and postpartum time. This is because of the stretching of the linea alba, a fibrous connective tissue on the abdominal wall. The Linea Alba is elastic and retracts back after the delivery of the baby. When this tissue gets overstretched, it loses its elasticity and the gap in the abdominals may not be closed leading to DRA. The motive of this research is to analyze the postpartum rehabilitation for signals from Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensors. The conservative treatment for women who… More >

    Prevalence of Anxiety and Associated Factors among University Students: A Cross-Sectional Study in Japan

    Yoshikiyo Kanada1,#, Shota Suzumura1,2,#, Soichiro Koyama1, Kazuya Takeda1, Kenta Fujimura1, Takuma Ii1, Shigeo Tanabe1, Hiroaki Sakurai1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.7, pp. 855-861, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.028956

    Abstract Mental health difficulties can impact students’ motivation, focus, and ability to communicate with others. Students attending medical universities are more likely to experience anxiety, depression, and other mood changes for the first time. However, no study has examined their prevalence among Japanese rehabilitation students. This study investigated the prevalence of anxiety among Japanese rehabilitation students and aimed to identify its predictors. A cross-sectional study was conducted among 148 first-year physical and occupational therapy students at a private medical university in Japan in June 2022. Data on sociodemographic and personal characteristics, such as gender, age, subject major, regular exercise, place of… More >

    Precise Rehabilitation Strategies for Functional Impairment in Children with Cerebral Palsy

    Yaojin Sun1, Nan Jiang1,*, Min Zhu1, Hao Hua2

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.36, No.3, pp. 3191-3202, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.035425

    Abstract This paper explores the effect of precise rehabilitation strategies under the international classification of functioning, disability and health for children and youth (ICF-CY) on the motor function of children with cerebral palsy. Under the framework of ICF-CY, the observation team is designed and evaluated from physical functions, activities and participation, environmental factors, and develops individualized rehabilitation strategies that are tailored to individual characteristics. The control group was assessed by traditional methods and treatment plans and measures were formulated and guided. The course of treatment was 12 months. The scores of GMFM-88, Peabody Motor Development Scale-2concluding fine motor quotient (PDMS-FM), WeeFIM… More >

    Investigating the Retrofit of RC Frames Using TADAS Yielding Dampers

    Mehrzad TahamouliRoudsari1,*, K. Cheraghi2, R. Aghayari2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 343-359, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.07927

    Abstract TADAS dampers are a type of passive structural control system used in the seismic design or retrofitting of structures. These types of dampers are designed so that they would yield before the main components of the structure during earthquake. This dissipates a large portion of the earthquake’s energy and reduces the energy dissipation demand in the main components of the structure. Considering its suitable performance, this damper has been the subject of numerous studies. However, there are still ambiguities regarding the effect of the number of these dampers on the retrofitting of reinforced concrete (RC) frames and their design procedure.… More >

    An Exploratory Study on the Meaning of Using Community Psychiatric Rehabilitation among Persons with Psychiatric Disabilities

    Li-yu Song*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.6, pp. 975-988, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.021552

    Abstract This study explores the meaning of the use of community psychiatric rehabilitation (CPR) services to gain knowledge to improve services and shed more light on how to facilitate recovery. The topics explored included: the motivation for participation, perception and expectation towards CPR, the interactions with professionals in the CPR Center, and the feelings towards activities. A qualitative approach was adopted, and 30 consumers were interviewed face-to-face by using semi-structured interview guide. Data were analyzed using the open coding method of grounded theory. The consumer accounts provided information on the eight aspects of CPR services. The findings revealed that the CPR… More >

    Influencing Factors Analysis of Rehabilitation for Patients with Spinal Cord Injury

    Min Rao1, Yufeng Li1,*, Hongye Liu2, Isabel Wang3, Yongjun Ren4

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.34, No.1, pp. 455-466, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.027694

    Abstract The aim of spinal cord injury rehabilitation is to increase the independent ability of patients, so that patients can return to society and live a creative life. Regaining independence living is the primary goal of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injury is a long and lengthy process, which needs comprehensive dimensions support from medical workers, family members, and social support. At present, medical institutions and researchers mainly focus on the level of physical recovery and the treatment of complications in patients with spinal cord injury and pay less attention to social factors during the rehabilitation treatment of patients.… More >

    Early Rehabilitation After Craniosynostosis Surgery

    Dan Wang1, Lanzheng Bian2, Xiaoyan Hao3, Yiming Liu1,*, Jinyue Xia4, Jing Hu5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 3899-3912, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026660

    Abstract Craniosynostosis is a common congenital craniofacial deformity caused by premature ossification and closure of one or more cranial sutures. Craniosynostosis will not only affect the normal development of the skull, but also may cause a variety of complications, damage the nervous system, and cause long-term effects on the development of physical and mental health. Therefore, it is particularly important to provide new ideas for clinical treatment by studying the rehabilitation methods of craniosynostosis, and to improve the cure rate. To this end, this paper studies the early rehabilitation methods after craniosynostosis surgery and designs a comprehensive early rehabilitation process and… More >
