Proprioceptive Focal Stimulation (Equistasi®) may improve the quality of gait in middle-moderate Parkinson’s disease patients. Double-blind, double-dummy, randomized, crossover, Italian Multicentric study.

Proprioceptive Focal Stimulation (Equistasi®) may improve the quality of gait in middle-moderate Parkinson’s disease patients. Double-blind, double-dummy, randomized, crossover, Italian Multicentric study. Peppe A., Paravati S., Baldassarre M.G., Bakdounes L., Spolaor F., Guiotto A., Pavan D., Sawacha Z., Bottino S., Clerici D., Cau N., Mauro A., Albani G., Avenali M., Sandrini G., Tassorelli C., Volpe D. 1. The object of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of Proprioceptive Focal Stimulation on Gait in middle – advanced Parkinson (PD) patients  2. Forty PD patients at their best on therapy were enrolled in the study. The findings obtained in this study show the…

A wearable proprioceptive stabilizer (Equistasi®) for rehabilitation of postural instability in Parkinson’s disease: a phase II randomized double-blind, double-dummy, controlled study.

A wearable proprioceptive stabilizer (Equistasi®) for rehabilitation of postural instability in Parkinson’s disease: a phase II randomized double-blind, double-dummy, controlled study. Volpe D., Giantin MG., Fasano A. 1. The aim of this pilot study is to test the feasibility and effectiveness of a balance training program in association with a wearable proprioceptive stabilizer (Equistasi®) that emits focal mechanical vibrations in patients with PD. Forty patients with PD were randomly divided in two groups wearing an active or inactive device. All the patients received a 2-month intensive program of balance training. 2. Both groups improved at the end of the…

Acute effects of high-frequency microfocal vibratory stimulation on the H reflex of the soleus muscle. A double-blind study in healthy subjects.

Acute effects of high-frequency microfocal vibratory stimulation on the H reflex of the soleus muscle. A double-blind study in healthy subjects. Alfonsi E., Paone P., Tassorelli C., De Icco R., Moglia A., Alvisi E., Marchetta L., Fresia M., Montini A., Calabrese M., Versiglia V., Sandrini G. 1. Questo studio in soggetti sani, ha esaminato gli effetti di un sistema che fornisce microvibrazioni focali ad alta frequenza (Equistasi®) sull’inibizione del muscolo soleo H stimolato (TVS). 2. Le microvibrazioni ad alta frequenza hanno aumentato significativamente l’effetto inibitorio di TVS sul riflesso H per un massimo di tre minuti. Inoltre, Equistasi® ha anche…

Non-invasive Focal Mechanical Vibrations Delivered by Wearable Devices: An Open-Label Pilot Study in Childhood Ataxia

Non-invasive Focal Mechanical Vibrations Delivered by Wearable Devices: An Open-Label Pilot Study in Childhood Ataxia Tommaso Schirinzi, Alberto Romano, Martina Favetta, Andrea Sancesario, Riccardo Burattini, Susanna Summa, Gessica Della Bella, Enrico Castelli, Enrico Bertini, Maurizio Petrarca, Gessica Vasco. 1. The aim of this open label pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of NIFMV by WS in a cohort of 10 patients with childhood ataxia, a phenomenological category including different conditions still lacking of effective symptomatic therapies. 2. Through the assessment of both clinical rating scales and spatio-temporal gait parameters via standardized gait analysis, we observed that…
