Fisioterapia en el hogar por telerehabilitación - eHealthNews

Fisioterapia en el hogar por telerehabilitación - eHealthNews | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Una nueva tecnología ha sido diseñada para dar a los pacientes en el futuro una motivación adicional para hacer sus ejercicios, lo que les permite realizar ejercicios de fisioterapia en el hogar o cuando fuera de casa - durante los descansos en el trabajo, por ejemplo. Los expertos llaman a este telerehabilitación. Apuntalando esta es una tecnología desarrollada por los investigadores del Instituto Fraunhofer de Sistemas Abiertos FOKUS Comunicación de Berlín, que consiste en un editor de ejercicios, un cuadro de fisioterapia y una unidad de sensor móvil que se conecta a un teléfono inteligente. El terapeuta utiliza el editor de ejercicios para trabajar un programa de formación adaptado a cada paciente en particular, el aumento de la intensidad de semana a semana. El paciente puede ejecutar el programa en el país usando el cuadro de fisioterapia, una especie de mini-PC para televisores. El pequeño ordenador dispone de conexión a Internet, una cámara y un micrófono. Las rutinas de ejercicio se muestran en la pantalla de TV para el paciente para copiar. El cuadro de fisio analiza los datos registrados por la cámara como el paciente hace los ejercicios. Previamente, el software se utiliza para asignar las características de cada paciente corporales en 3D y traducirlos en un modelo informático biomecánica. Una vez que los datos han sido interpretados, el cuadro se envía a través de Internet al centro de rehabilitación, donde el terapeuta ve cómo el paciente está progresando y se pueden adaptar los ejercicios en consecuencia.

It's time to stop being obsessed about the dangers of knowing what's in your genome

It's time to stop being obsessed about the dangers of knowing what's in your genome | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

There are lots of popular articles I could point to, but let’s start with a recent series in Time that included eight online features and the Dec. 13 cover story, ominously titled “The DNA Dilemma.”

 

The series, written by Bonnie Rochman, is thoroughly reported, balanced, and full of fascinating personal stories about children whose genomes have been sequenced. It’s also timely: The primary question Rochman raises—how much information is too much information?—has been dominating commentaries about genetic testing in the medical literature.

 

But this is the wrong question, or at least one that’s becoming increasingly irrelevant. The personal genomics horse has bolted, and yet many paternalistic members of the medical community are still trying to shut the barn door. In doing so, they’re fostering a culture of DNA fear when what we really need is a realistic and nuanced genetics education.

 

There are many kinds of genetic tests, but most of the hoopla revolves around whole-genome sequences—the impossibly long, letter-by-letter readouts of the DNA inside the nucleus of each of your cells. In 2003, the first human genome was fully sequenced for just shy of $3 billion. Today a doctor can order yours for around $10,000.

 

Though dropping every day, the cost is still prohibitive enough that most people who get their genome sequenced are part of a medical research study. But the technology is beginning to seep into everyday clinical settings, especially for children with rare diseases. In either situation, the doctor or researcher might inadvertently discover genomic information—known as “incidental findings” in the scientific literature and “dark DNA secrets” in one of the Timearticles—that has nothing to do with the child’s sickness or the study at hand. Hence the big dilemma: How much do patients want to know? How much do they need to know?

Promising compound restores memory loss and reverses symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease

Promising compound restores memory loss and reverses symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

New research in the FASEB Journal by NIH scientists suggests that a small molecule called TFP5 rescues plaques and tangles by blocking an overactive brain signal, thereby restoring memory in mice with Alzheimer’s — without obvious toxic side effects.

 

“We hope that clinical trial studies in AD patients yield an extended and a better quality of life, as observed in mice upon TFP5 treatment,” said Harish C. Pant, Ph.D., a senior researcher involved in the work from the Laboratory of Neurochemistry at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders at Stroke at the National Institutes of Health.

 

“We suggest that TFP5 should be an effective therapeutic compound.”

To make this discovery, Pant and colleagues used mice with a disease considered the equivalent of Alzheimer’s. One set of these mice were injected with the small molecule TFP5, while the other was injected with saline as placebo. The mice, after a series of intraperitoneal injections of TFP5, displayed a substantial reduction in the various disease symptoms along with restoration of memory loss.

 

In addition, the mice receiving TFP5 injections experienced no weight loss, neurological stress (anxiety) or signs of toxicity. The disease in the placebo mice, however, progressed normally as expected.

 

TFP5 was derived from the regulator of a key brain enzyme, called Cdk5. Over-activation of Cdk5 is implicated in the formation of plaques and tangles, the major hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.
