Abstract (Croatian)
Cilj: Medicinska gimnastika ili kineziterapija ima posebnu važnost u prevenciji, liječenju i rehabilitaciji bolesti sustava za kretanje. Danas se ističe potreba za što bržim izlječenjem i vraćanjem pune funkcije zahvaćenog zgloba, ekstremiteta ili organizma u cjelini. Cilj ovog rada je prikaz primjene izokinetičkog sustava u rehabilitaciji bolesnika s neurološkom slabošću razvijenom uslijed cerebrovaskularne bolesti. Prikaz slučaja: Izokinetičke vježbe, kao dio kineziterapije, pripadaju skupini vježbi snaženja mišića kod kojih se odabire/propisuje brzina pokreta, dok istovremeno posebno programirani uređaj automatski prilagođuje otpor pokretu. Osnova izokinetičkog vježbanja jest promjenjiv otpor kod vježbanja pri određenoj brzini, čime se postižu optimalni rezultati u povećanju snage i izdržljivosti mišića. Rasprava: Navedeno načelo vježbanja otvara šire terapijske mogućnosti medicinske rehabilitacije bolesnika sa zadobivenim ozljedama i kroničnim stanjima zglobova i mišića, a posebnu vrijednost pruža u liječenju medicinski zahtjevnijih skupina bolesnika, uključujući one u razdoblju rane postoperacijske rehabilitacije, neurološke bolesnike, kao i u rehabilitaciji sportaša. Zaključak: Uvažavajući poznate kontraindikacije za primjenu izokinetičkih uređaja, može se kod pažljivo odabranih bolesnika postići značajan napredak u funkcionalnom oporavku.
Abstract (English)
Aim: Medical exercises or kinesiotherapy has a special importance in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of diseases of the locomotor system. Today emphasizes the need for faster healing and restoring full function of the affected joint, limb or entire organisms. The aim of this article is to demonstrate the application of isokinetic system in the rehabilitation of patients with neurological weakness developed due to cerebrovascular disease. Case report: Isokinetic exercises as part kinesiotherapy-group exercises strengthen the muscles in which the selection / provides movement speed, while specially programmed device automatically adjusts the resistance movement. Basis isokinetic exercise is variable resistance with exercise at some speeds to deliver optimal results in increasing muscle strength and endurance. Discussion: The above principle exercise opens wider therapeutic possibilities of medical rehabilitation of patients with his injuries and chronic joint and muscle conditions, and provides a special value in the treatment of medically demanding patient groups, including those in the period of early postoperative rehabilitation, neurological patients, as well as rehabilitating athletes. Conclusion: Acknowledging known contraindications for for the application of isokinetic devices can be used with carefully selected patients to achieve significant progress in functional recovery.
