    How does a Personalized Rehabilitative Model infl uence the Functional Response of Different Ankle Foot Orthoses in a Cohort of Patients Affected by Neurological Gait Pattern?

    Maurizio Falso*, Eleonora Cattaneo, Elisa Foglia, Marco Zucchini and Franco Zucchini

    Background: Orthoses need to support physiotherapy as well as surgical treatment. Related to patient’s rehabilitative goals and pathological gait pattern, orthotists have to produce an orthoses that using an adjustable ankle joint system with preloaded disc springs can store the energy brought in by the body weight and produce a tuning effect on patient’s gait and sense of balance. The purpose of this study was to establish how a personalized proprioceptive individualized rehabilitative treatment could infl uence the functional response of different AFOs (Ankle Foot Orthoses) in a cohort of patients affected by neurological gait pattern.

    The effects of EMF (ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS) on the Bone and Cartilage Tissue

    Cemil Sert*

    Environmental electromagnetic fi elds are nowadays available in all environments today. These areas affect the biological system. Controlled interactions with elecrtomagnetic fi elds can have positive effects when unrestricted interactions have negative effects. Uncontrolled exposure to low-frequency electromagnetic fi elds can cause adverse effects such as signal transduction in cells and tissues, cell membrane structure, ion channels, molecular interactions, DNA damage. But contrary to controlled exposure, it positively affects tissues. The most obvious example of this is seen in the bone and cartilaginous tissue. Repairing fractures and damage in bone and cartilage. This has been shown in many studies. Below is a summary of the relevant information.
