  • Stance Phase Kinematics in Ankle Joint during Ambulation on Uneven
           Surface: A Comparison between Stroke Survivors and Typical Adults

    • Abstract: Purpose: Gait impairment is a common disability among stroke survivors and is a known risk factor of falls. Outdoor ambulation is essential for everyone, even for basic activities of daily living, but routine assessment of stroke survivors concentrates mainly on indoor ambulation and function. This study is an attempt to document gait parameters in stroke survivors and typical adults during outdoor ambulation.Method: For this prospective pilot study, 7 chronic adult stroke survivors and 7 age-matched typical adults were recruited by convenience. Measurements were taken of their ankle and subtalar joint angles during various phases of gait, using video analysing software, Kinovea 0.8.15.Results: Large differences in range of motion in the ankle and subtalar joints were noticed between stroke survivors and typical adults during ambulation on various surfaces. During ambulation on a firm surface, plantar flexion range of motion at the ankle was greater at initial contact and mid-stance, whereas on pebbled surfaces vast differences could be seen on initial contact and mid-stance. Conclusion and Implications: Significant stance phase deviations are evident in stroke survivors during ambulation on uneven terrain. This may be a risk for falls and musculoskeletal degeneration. Although definitive conclusions cannot be drawn due to the small sample size, these findings indicate a need for considering outdoor gait evaluation in routine practice in the community. Mobility correlates highly with quality of life and meaningful strategies to adopt safe ambulation methods can be developed only with proper evaluation methods. Published on 2020-12-19 03:27:33
  • Community-Based Rehabilitation in Nigeria: A Scoping Study of Literature

    • Abstract: Purpose: Previous reviews of community-based rehabilitation literature provide scant evidence supporting community-based rehabilitation in Nigeria. This study aimed at discovering the extent of the community-based rehabilitation impact in Nigeria by reviewing published literature and making it available to researchers, CBR project coordinators and managers, and policy-makers.Method: A scoping study of community-based rehabilitation literature on people with disabilities, families, and communities in Nigeria was conducted, using the databases of Pubmed, African journal online, Google Scholar, African journal of disability,, and REHABDATA on, for articles published between the years 1990 – 2018. Fourteen studies met all the inclusion criteria and were classified according to type as descriptive (n = 4), theory (n = 5), impact (n = 2), and case studies (n = 2) or review (n = 1) papers.Results: The results indicated a recent increase in community-based rehabilitation literature publication.Conclusion: However, there is a need for more well-designed literature to better inform community-based rehabilitation practice.   Published on 2020-12-19 03:25:08

  • Disability, Sociodemographics, and Discrimination: A Descriptive Analysis
           of Household Survey Data from Bangladesh

    • Abstract: Purpose: Disability affects upwards of one billion people worldwide, the majority of whom live in low- and middle-income countries. Based on survey data from Bangladesh, the aim of the study is to contribute to an improved understanding of the experiences of people with disabilities in terms of discrimination, health, and sociodemographic indicators.Method: A descriptive analysis of data is presented, from a survey implemented in 2016 on a sample of adult persons with disabilities from18 districts in Bangladesh (n=1,900). The summary statistics of main indicators and correlation analysis of key variables are given.Results: Women comprised around 40% of the sample. The mean age was 36 years (minimum 18 years and maximum 55 years). Women had lower socioeconomic status than men (p<0, 01), were less likely to be well-educated or employed, had worse self-assessed health (p<0, 05), and were less likely to be able to read and write. Men were more likely to have a physical disability than women (p<0, 01). Both women and men reported unmet needs in terms of access to assistive products and not receiving a benefit. Around 40 % of the sample reported having experienced discrimination, with no significant differences between women and men.Conclusion and Implications: Many women and men with disability experience some forms of discrimination, including in matters pertaining to healthcare, education, and employment. Such experiences may have a negative impact on their life chances. However, women and men with a disability differ in several important respects, both in terms of socioeconomic status and types of disability. Such differences need to be considered for effective and equitable policy development. Published on 2020-12-19 00:00:00
  • Effectiveness of Community-Based Rehabilitation on the lives of Parents of
           Children with Cerebral Palsy: A Mixed Method Study in Karnataka, India

    • Abstract: Purpose: The study aimed to identify the effects of the CBR programme on
      parents of children with Cerebral Palsy, living in Karnataka State, India. It
      also tried to find the challenges and improvements needed to make the CBR
      programme more effective.Method: A cross-sectional, descriptive study design was used to collect a sample
      of 100 parents of children with Cerebral Palsy, with GMFCS levels IV and V.
      The sample was drawn from various communities in Bangalore, Davanagere
      and Bijapur, where the services of The Association of People with Disability are
      available. Face-to-face interviews were conducted with the study subjects. Data
      was analysed by SPSS using descriptive and inferential statistics.
      Results: It was observed that the CBR programme had a positive effect on
      parents’ health, knowledge, social lives and empowerment. A binary logistic
      regression was done to find the relationship between health, knowledge, social
      lives and assistive devices use. A strong association was found between all the
      areas (p=.001) except GMFCS and assistive devices use (p=.004) at 95% CI. The
      odds ratios between them were greater than 1 and showed the strong positive
      effect of the CBR programme on parents.Conclusion: The CBR programme not only has a positive effect on children with
      Cerebral Palsy, but also plays an important role in parents’ lives. It contributes
      in a positive way to parents’ overall activity. Published on 2020-12-19 00:00:00
  • Activity Limitation of People Affected by Leprosy in an Endemic District
           in West Bengal, India

    • Abstract: Purpose: This study aimed to assess the level of activity limitation, and the factors associated with it, among people affected by leprosy who were reporting at a leprosy referral centre of Purulia, in West Bengal state, India.Method: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 358 individuals affected by leprosy. Persons recruited for this study were above 18 years of age, married, and had been diagnosed with leprosy for at least 1 year at the time of the interview. A semi-structured questionnaire was used to gather information about the respondents’ socio-economic and disease status. The Screening of Activity Limitation and Safety Awareness (SALSA) Scale was used to measure activity limitation.Results: Of the 358 respondents, 59% were male, 60% were between 18 and 45 years of age, and 42% were illiterate. About 144 or 40% of the respondents had Grade 2 disability and 60% had disease duration of more than 3 years. There were 229 individuals (64%) who had no limitation in activities, 103 (29%) had mild limitation and 26 (7%) had moderate to severe limitation in activities. There is a significant association between gender, age, occupation, physical disability and disease duration with activity limitation.Conclusion: It appears that limitations in activities among persons affected by leprosy are associated with being a woman, a housewife, an aged person, and with longer disease duration. The physical disability was intrinsically associated with limitation in activities. Published on 2020-12-19 00:00:00
  • Disclosure of Disease among Women affected by Leprosy: A Qualitative Study

    • Abstract: Purpose: Although leprosy is completely curable with multidrug therapy, it
      is unfortunate that the stigma attached to leprosy persists even today. Fear of
      social exclusion prevents disclosure of the disease to the family and community.
      This study aimed to evaluate the extent of disclosure of disease among women
      affected by leprosy in a tertiary referral hospital in Chhattisgarh State, India.Method: A qualitative study was conducted with 57 women affected by leprosy
      who reported at a tertiary referral hospital in Champa, Chhattisgarh State. The
      respondents were 18 years of age or older, and had completed multidrug therapy
      for leprosy. They were asked whether the disclosure of disease had affected their
      interactions with family, neighbours and community members.Results: Of the 57 women, 48 (84%) had disclosed their disease to their family,
      17 (30%) to their neighbours and 13 (23%) to the community members. Thirty
      women (53%) reported that they experienced problems after revealing the
      ailment to their family, friends and neighbours. The qualitative analysis found
      that negative behaviour towards people affected by leprosy still persists in the
      community. Consequently, women affected by leprosy try to hide their disease
      due to fear of negative community reactions.Conclusion: This study emphasises the need to spread awareness about the
      disease and its transmission, by educating the people affected by leprosy, their
      families and the community. This should be a continuous process in order to
      reduce or remove the stigma and discrimination against women affected by
      leprosy, in particular. Published on 2020-12-19 00:00:00
  • User Satisfaction with Conventional Lower-Limb Orthotic Devices: A
           Cross-Sectional Survey in Pakistan

    • Abstract: Purpose: Persons with disabilities affecting lower-limb function use ankle-foot-orthoses (AFO) and knee-ankle-foot-orthoses (KAFO) on a regular basis. However, the effectiveness of these devices in daily use is seldom evaluated, especially in the developing world. This study aimed to evaluate user satisfaction with lower-limb orthotic devices while performing a broad spectrum of daily life activities in Pakistan, and to document the desired outcomes.Method: A survey was conducted among orthotic device users in the out-patient departments of three hospitals in Lahore, Pakistan. The survey questionnaire was devised by adapting the Prosthetic Evaluation Questionnaire to suit orthotics evaluation. Fifty-four AFO and KAFO users participated in the study.  Results: Most users felt comfortable while walking on even surfaces with their orthoses. However, donning/doffing these, climbing stairs and performing certain routine activities were considered problematic for most people. Energy conservation was the most desired AFO feature, while the KAFO users wanted automatic knee-joint function.Conclusion and Implications: Overall satisfaction with the existing lower-limb orthoses is adequate. Yet, significant improvements are needed in terms of energy efficiency and comfort while walking on different terrains. Further research is required in order to improve the functioning of the existing orthotic devices. Published on 2020-12-19 00:00:00
  • Mixed-Methods Programme Evaluation of Disability Equality Training (DET)
           in Mongolia

    • Abstract: Purpose: An evaluation of a disability equality training (DET) programme, based on the social model of disability, was conducted to explore the changes in the participants’ attitudes and behaviours in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.Methods: This study is composed of two parts. First, the participants’ attitude changes during DET sessions were examined through a descriptive quantitative and qualitative analysis of questionnaires and related documents. Second, the behavioural changes at the organisational and individual levels, the impact on society, and related factors were explored by quantitative and qualitative analysis of good practice cases: 39 participants were selected through purposive sampling and semi-structured interviews were conducted.Results: It was found that most participants adopted the social model perspective within these sessions. A qualitative content analysis of the good practice cases also found that the majority of participants attempted to change their social environments after the sessions. Thematic analysis identified promotional factors, such as within-organisation dynamics and compatibility and barriers at the individual and organisational levels, which were associated with participants’ behaviours after DET sessions.Conclusion: The implications of these findings are discussed in connection with the strategic implementation of DET to promote disability-inclusive development. Future studies should examine the effectiveness of a strategy by considering the factors identified in this study and by using a reliable sample in various settings where DET sessions are conducted.
