           Stroke Patients with Berg Balance Scale and Brunel Balance Assessment for
           Chronic Stroke

    • Authors: Cevher DEMİRCİ; Saniye AYDOĞAN ARSLAN, Hatice YAKUT, Meral SERTEL, Süleyman KUTLUHAN
      Abstract: Objective: The purpose of the present study was to verify the validity of the Turkish version of the Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients (PASS) in chronic stroke, and to compare its validity, reliability, and responsiveness characteristics with Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Brunel Balance Assessment (BBA).Method: 49 chronic stroke patients were included in the study. Those participating in the study were applied PASS, BBS and BBA on the first day. To measure the test-retest reliability, the second assessment for the scales was performed by the same physiotherapist 1 week after the initial evaluation.Results: According to the correlation analysis, a very high level of correlation was found between the PASS first and second assessment scores (r = 0.984). Cronbach Alpha Coefficient was found to be 0.995 (excellent). The Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) value for PASS was 0.995. A high level of correlation was found between PASS, BBS and BBA. No ceiling and floor effects were observed for PASS.Conclusion: The results of our study showed that Turkish version of PASS is a valid and reliable scale in chronic stroke patients and all these three scales, which are commonly used to assess balance in stroke patients are, made repeatable measurements in patients with chronic stroke. The test re-test reliability values of these three scales were found to be excellent. Minimal detectable change values, which are used to determine a real change in balance in stroke patients by clinicians, were found to be close to each other for these balance scales.

  • COVID-19 Process and Telerehabilitation Applications in Physiotherapy:

    • Authors: Ali CEYLAN
      Abstract: In late 2019, an unexplained disease was detected in China, causing severe respiratory damage, and the World Health Organization named the disease COVID-19. COVID-19 has negatively affected people from all walks of life who remain in their homes due to quarantine practices, not just those who are infected. It has led to an intensity in health care organizations and difficulties in the delivery of Health Services. Physical therapists are at risk for infection, as they practice in close contact with their patients during treatment. Researchers reported that physical therapists should decongest their treatment except in emergencies, and compliance with infection rules is important in mandatory treatments. In addition, telerehabilitation applications have been recommended by scientists with the idea that it can reduce the rate of infection spread. Telerehabilitation has been defined by physiotherapists using a range of technology-based tools as remote provision of rehabilitation services to improve the health of individuals. Physiotherapists can perform individuals ' exercises, evaluate their patients and reduce the rate of infection spread by remotely offering health services with telerehabilitation during the COVID-19 period. Research has shown that telerehabilitation applications can be as effective as conventional treatment protocols. It is important to acquire a web-based system in which sufficient personnel and technical infrastructure are provided for the dissemination of telerehabilitation practices during the epidemic period. We believe that with the dissemination of permanent practices, the quality of telerehabilitation studies, which are found in a limited number of literature in our country, may increase.

           Postpartum Fatigue and Labor Results

    • Authors: Özlem DEMİREL BOZKURT; Oya KAVLAK, Sevgi ÖZKAN, Ahsen ŞİRİN
      Abstract: Objective: The study was made to examine the effects of delayed pushing during the second stage of labor and pushing on postpartum fatigue and labor results.Method: This is a randomized controlled experimental study. The sampling of the research is comprised of 48 primiparous women (23 in the delayed pushing group and 25 in the control group). The pushing of control group was initiated when strong uterine contraction appeared when the fetal head rotation was completed. Different from the control group, when the fetal head was “+1” inside the pelvis, considering the desire to push, pregnant were asked to delay the pushing until the feeling of powerful and involuntary pushing reflex in the delayed pushing group. As a data collection tool, “Pregnant Identification Form”, “Follow-up Form”, “Partograph” and, “Visual Analogue Scale for Fatigue” was used.Results: The mean duration of the second stage of labor was 38.34 ± 17.84 minutes in the delayed pushing group and 13.52 ± 5.29 minutes in the control group. It was observed that a statistically significant difference was found between the delayed pushing and control group women in terms of the mean duration of the second stage of labor, the mean pushing time, the average fatigue, and energy scores in the first hour after labor (p <0.05).Conclusion: It was found out that delayed pushing prolonged the time of the second stage of labor but reduced the pushing time and significantly affected the fatigue at the first one hour of postpartum.

  • Probiotic Tofu with Bacillus clausii Spores to Support Gastrointestinal

    • Authors: Nursena ZEYBEKOĞLU; Hatice ÖZHAN, Olcay BOYACIOĞLU
      Abstract: Objective: This study was conducted to develop a tofu product enriched with probiotic Bacillus clausii spores that vegan individuals can benefit from without changing their diets for probiotic consumption and without having to use the supplementary probiotic pills.Method: B. clausii was cultured to sporulate in 2xSG medium. The resulting B. clausii spores were added to tofu by two different methods to determine the optimum step in the procedure to ensure that the probiotic was able to retain in tofu at the highest amount; i) addition of probiotic spores before coagulant MgCl2 (P-C tofu), ii) addition of probiotic spores after the coagulant (C-P tofu).Results: The yields of probiotic spores in P-C and C-P tofu were calculated to be 5.45±0.40 and 5.33±0.56 log cfu/g, respectively, which was slightly lower than the targeted level, 6 log cfu/g. No significant difference was observed between the P-C and C-P tofu methods in terms of probiotic concentration (P=0.36; t test). Storage of P-C tofu at -18°C decreased the probiotic load by 0.45 log cfu/g in 1 month (P=0.003). One-day temperature abuse at 20°C of cold chain storage resulted in a significant 0.85 log reduction (P=0.01). Sauté cooking was found to decrease the spore load in tofu significantly by 1.22 log (P=0.004). Sensory evaluation of P-C and probiotic free tofu did not reveal a significant difference in general acceptability features (P>0.05). Conclusion: Probiotic enriched tofu may be a healthy alternative choice for vegans and vegetarians while positively affecting the health of consumers.

  • The Assessment of Maturation Indicators in Individuals with Different
           Skeletal Pattern

    • Authors: Yazgı AY ÜNÜVAR
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationships among dental age, chronological age, hand-wrist maturation and cervical vertebral maturation in Class I, Class II and Class III individuals.Method: Panoramic, cephalometric and hand-wrist radiographs of 289 individuals (151 girls, 138 boys) aged between 8 and 18 were evaluated in this study. Subjects divided into three main groups as Class I, Class II and Class III according to their sagittal skeletal malocclusion. The dental ages of the individuals were defined according to the Demirjian’s method. The Fishman maturation indicators were used for evaluating the hand-wrist radiographs and the method improved by Bacetti et al. were used for evaluating the maturation stages of the cervical vertebrae. The Spearman correlation analysis was used to evaluate the relationships between the variables separately for males and females.Results: The Spearman correlation coefficient indicated a significant positive correlation at different levels between all variables evaluated for both female and male individuals in all groups (P< 0.01). The lowest correlation was found between chronological age and dental age skeletal in Class II group (r: 0.413). The correlation between cervical vertebra maturation and hand-wrist maturation were highly positive for both sexes in all groups (P< 0.01).Conclusion: According to the results of our study, to define the growth spurt and developmental stages, cervical vertebrae maturation could be used as an alternative to hand-wrist maturation assessment. However, additional studies with a larger sample size may be helpful in proving the reliability of the dental age.
