  1. 21. Assessment of human swallowing using in-vivo and in-vitro approaches

    Författare :Muhammad Waqas; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; in-vitro manometery; In-vitro simulations; In-vivo analysis; microstructure analysis; extensional rheology; dysphagia; Ultrasound viscometry; Bolus Rheology;

    Sammanfattning : Texture modification is the most vital strategy to manage dysphagia: a condition in which food and beverages are difficult to swallow. Typically thickeners in the form of starch or gums are added to the food to increase the viscosity and thereby reduce the speed of bolus flow. LÄS MER

  2. 22. Exploring the role of rheology in bolus flow using an in-vitro approach

    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; extensional rheology; ultrasound viscometery; Bolus rheology; in vivo analysis; in vitro manometry; In-vitro simulations; degluitition; microstructure analysis; thickened fluids; Dysphagia;

    Sammanfattning : Swallowing disorders, termed ‘dysphagia’, are more common in the elderly but can also affect younger persons. Approximately, 8% of the world’s population suffers from dysphagia. A Texture Modified Diet (TMD), which increases bolus viscosity to adjust for the sluggish bolus handling mechanism, is the most common intervention. LÄS MER

  3. 23. Occupation-based and occupation-focused evaluation and intervention with children : a validation study of the assessment of motor and process skills (AMPS)

    Författare :Brigitte Elisabeth Gantschnig; Ingeborg Nilsson; Anne G Fisher; Julie Page; Wendy Costa; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : IntroductionOccupational therapists are concerned with enabling people to perform the daily life tasks they need, want, or are expected to perform for fullest possible integration into community living and participation in society. Children with mild disabilities have problems performing personal and instrumental activities of daily living (ADL) tasks at home or school, and that can limit their full integration and participation in their homes and school lives.

    Sammanfattning : The ability to obtain correct balance control information and adjust motor performance appropriately are essential elements in effective postural control. However, functional disorders may affect the reliability of receptor information and ability to carry out corrective motions needed to maintain balance. LÄS MER
