Clinical<br>assessment of endurance in daily practice is usually hurdled by limitation of hospital spaces. Another<br>obstacle arise that shorter six-minute walk test (6MWT) track will lead to more turning motion, yielding<br>shorter straight walking distance with increased ener gy expenditure.<br>Methods:<strong> This cross sectional study compares 6MWT on a 15 meter corridor, to the gold standard</strong><br>Biodex® gait trainer for healthy adults aged 18-50 years. Subjects without any anatomical abnormalities<br>or systemic disorders were recruited, and instructed to turn in a three-step method at track ends to<br>maximize walking distance. Furthermore, validity and reliability assessments to obtain both Pearson<br>correlation and Cronbach Alpha values were performed respectively.<br><strong>Results:</strong> Among 123 subjects, 58 males aged ranging from 18 to 45 years, and females between 18 to<br>42 years were recruited. Anthropometrical values were similar between gender. Significant difference<br>in walking distance and walking speed was observed. Comparison of walking distance between the two<br>modalities were seen to be statistically similar (p=0.693). Pearson validity test was proven significant (p<br>&lt;0.001) with a correlation coefficient of r = 0.998, while reliability test obtained Cronbach’s Alpha value<br>of 0.999, hence showing that these are both valid and reliable.<br><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Good validity and reliability of 6MWT in 15 meter track as compared to the gold standard<br>Biodex® gait trainer was demonstrated in this study. Moreover, shorter track is a potential modification<br>adhering to the limitation of operational space. The three-step turning method could significantly<br>improves total walk distance, and thus is suggested.<br><strong>Keywords:</strong> clinical assessment, endurance, six-minute walk test, walk dist ance, walking speed</p> 2021-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Effects of Additional Radial Shockwave Therapy to Median Nerve Gliding Exercises on Hand Grip Strength in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Patients 2022-04-01T11:32:30+00:00 Cornelia Arina Pradipta Rudy Handoyo Hari Peni Julianti Hindun Zuhdiana Noviolita Dwi Kusumawati <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong><br><strong>Introduction:</strong> Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common entrapment neuropathies<br>found in the upper extremities. Patients with moderate and severe CTS usually experience disturbances<br>in motor strength. A non-invasive therapeutic method that has recently emerged in the treatment of CTS<br>is Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT). RSWT is a therapy using shock waves and can be added to other<br>forms of exercise. The addition of RSWT in CTS is expected to increase the grip strength. Research that<br>directly assesses the effect of adding RSWT and median nerve gliding exercises on hand grip strength in<br>CTS patients has not been conducted.<br>Methods: <strong>This study was a pre-test/post-test control group design. There were 22 moderate grade CTS</strong><br>subjects divided into 2 groups, the control group was received median nerve gliding exercise (n=11) and<br>the treatment group was received additional RSWT on median nerve gliding exercise (n=11). Assessment<br>of grip strength by Jamar hand dynamometer was performed before and after 4 weeks of treatment. The<br>mean differences before and after treatment, as well as between groups was compared statistically using<br>an unpaired t-test.<br><strong>Results:</strong> There was no significant difference in the handgrip strength of the control group (p = 0.094),<br>and a significant difference in the treatment group (p = 0.009) before and after the intervention. However,<br>there were no significant differences in grip strength between the two groups (p=0.065).<br><strong>Conclusion:</strong> There was no significant effect of adding RSWT on improving handgrip strength in CTS<br>patients who received a median nerve gliding exercise.<br><strong>Keywords:</strong> carpal tunnel syndrome, entrapment neuropathies, grip strength, nerve gliding exercise,<br>radial shockwave therapy</p> 2021-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Effect Combination of Inspiratory Muscle Training and Aerobic Exercise on Cardiopulmonary Endurance and Pulmonary Function in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus 2022-02-14T12:32:32+00:00 Irsan Agung Ramdhani Irma Ruslina Defi Dian Marta Sari Rachmat Gunadi Wachjudi <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong><br><strong>Introduction:</strong> Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease which decreased<br>cardiopulmonary endurance and pulmonary function are the clinical manifestations.

Non-urgent hospital visits are reduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.<br>Functional disability questionnaires serve as an alternative fo r patients to self-monitor their condition.<br><strong>Methods:</strong> This case-based study aimed to compare the Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale (QBPDS) with<br>the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) on their responsiveness in assessing functional disability of patients<br>with LBP. Four databases (PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane, and Embase) were searched for literature. Two<br>eligible studies were included in this report. The studies were assessed using the Centre for Evidence-<br>Based Medicine critical appraisal tool for diagnostic studies. Data collected on the responsiveness of<br>ODI and QBPDS were measured using the area under the curve (AUC) of a receiver operating curve<br>(ROC), sensitivity, and specificity.<br><strong>Result: Both studies reported higher AUC values for ODI than QBPDS. One study reported higher</strong><br>sensitivity in ODI and identical specificity values for both ODI and QBPDS. QBPDS has comparable<br>responsiveness to ODI in assessing functional disability of pat ients with LBP.<br><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Therefore, patients with low back pain can self-monitor their condition with QPBDS, as it<br>is comparable to ODI and suitable for self-monitor during the C OVID-19 pandemic<br><strong>Keywords:</strong> assessment, disability evaluation, low back pain, musculoskeletal pain, surveys and<br>questionnaires</p> 2021-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Respiratory Monitoring in Pediatric Neuromuscular Disease 2022-04-20T03:09:03+00:00 Andre Sugiyono Siti Chandra Widjanantie <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong><br>Neuromuscular disease in childhood result in dysfunction of chest wall and lung movement that interfere<br>ventilation function and gas exchange.
