size / enrollment: 60
Flexibility of hamstrings was evaluated by Popliteal Angle test. Performance was evaluated 6 Minute Walk Test (6 MWT). Regression of hamstring flexibility and performance was examined regression tests. Correlation was examined between popliteal angle test and parameter of North Star Ambulation Assessment.
- Popliteal Angle Test [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
The Popliteal Angle Test was used to assess hamstring flexibility. Child asked to rise lower leg straight. Incomplete angle degree of full extension is popliteal angle.
- 6 Minute Walk Test [ Time Frame: 6 minute ]
6 Minute Walk Test was used to assess performance with children Duchenne MUscular Dystropy.
- North Star Ambulation Assessment [ Time Frame: 20 minute ]
The North Star Ambulatory Assessment (NSAA) is used to assess mobility for in ambulatory children with DMD for 5 years. NSAA is consist of 17 items from stand to run.
• To be a Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy diagnosis,
• Being in the ambulatory period and climbing four steps independently,
• To be Level 1 and Level 2 according to Brooke Lower Functional Classification Test
• To be able to cooperate
• No any severe contracture in the lower limbs which may prevent assessments,
• Children who fail to meet these criteria study.
