FULL TEXT  


Quantitative anal­y­sis of ­trunk and shoul­der gir­dle move­ments dur­ing the sit-to-­stand move­ment in a hem­i­pleg­ic ­patient, com­pared to a ­healthy sub­ject was car­ried out. The late­ro-lat­er­al com­po­nent of the forc­es and the pos­sible cor­re­la­tion ­between the inves­ti­gat­ed param­e­ters and the clin­i­cal def­i­cit, eval­u­at­ed ­using the Albert ­scale, ­have ­been stud­ied. This ­study ­allowed us to con­firm, ­through a quan­ti­ta­tive anal­y­sis of ­some var­i­ables, the qual­ita­tive ­data ­already avail­able in the Literature regard­ing the sit-to ­stand trans­fer in hem­i­pleg­ic ­patients, par­tic­u­lar­ly con­cern­ing ­trunk and shoul­der move­ments. The com­par­i­son ­between the ­data of ­each ­patient and ­their clin­i­cal def­i­cit ­degree sug­gests ­that ­these abnor­mal ­actions ­help to com­pen­sate the clin­i­cal def­i­cit of the low­er ­limb, ­thus reduc­ing the use of the ill leg in the dis­place­ment ­upward and for­ward of the cen­tre of the grav­ity as ­much as pos­sible. Some reha­bil­i­ta­tive con­sid­er­a­tions are ­exposed.
