In order to compare and evaluate walking with eyes closed and performing a secondary cognitive task in a CFS population and in nondisabled controls, our group developed a new test entitled "stops walking with eyes closed with secondary cognitive task" (SWECCT), based on the SWWT test by Lundin-Olsson et al.
The SWWT test is a relatively simple physical test that challenges parallel motor and cognitive tasks; it has been found to be a good predictor of falls among frail, institutionalized elderly patients .
The test is based on the classic SWWT test by Lundin-Olsson et al.
When comparing the results of the functional measurements presented in Table 3, there were significant differences between persons with and without hip fracture regarding visual impairment, fractures before stroke onset, cognitive function, functional mobility (TUG), and the ability to walk and talk simultaneously (SWWT).
Persons who were unable to walk were not able to participate in the test SWWT. Persons who were unable to rise from an armchair and unable to walk could not participate in TUG.
In the present study, where only persons with first-ever strokes were included, there was a significant difference regarding TUG and SWWT between persons who later on fractured their hip and those who did not.
SIALKOT/GUJRANWALA -- Thousands of people participated in the Tuhaffuz-e-Namoos-e-Risalat (SWWT
) rallies taken out by the Pakistan Sunni Tehreek and Tehreek Labaik Pakistan here after the Jumma prayers.
They warned that whenever anyone tried to attack sanctity of the Holy Prophet (SWWT
), he was duly punished by the Muslims.
