Brief Summary in Lay Language

Sensorimotor function is the fundament of all movements. In arthroplasty patients, sensorimotor function is deficient ue to Arthroplasty and previous long-time suffering from arthritis. By making use of sensorimotor training you can improve sensorimotor function, whereby information for optimal ammount of volume and intensity have no scientific basis. The aim of the study is to study the course of sensorimotor function under the influence of different sensorimotor training volumes in in-patient rehabilitation in knee and hip replacement patients. Thereby, we hypothesize that a higher sensorimotor training volume would cause graeter improvement in sensorimotor function.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Background: Sensorimotor function in patients after lower limb arthroplasty is degraded, in the consequence of osteoarthritis and the procedure itself. As sensorimotor training is said to improve sensorimotor skills, evidence about the optimal training stimulus with regard to volume, frequency, duration, and intensity is unsufficient.
Methods: 58 participants during their in-patient rehabilitation after total hip or knee arthroplasty participated in this prospective cohort study. Sensorimotor function was assessed using a test battery including proprioception, static balance, stabilization capacity, gait analysis, and a self-assessment questionnaire. All participants were randomly assigned to one of three intervention groups performing sensorimotor training two, four, or six times per week and were tested at three instances (pre, mid, and post intervention) .

Interventions/Observational Groups

  •   2 weekly sensorimotor training sessions
    Sensorimotor exercises were undertaken for thirty seconds on each of 3 sensorimotor training devices, and were repeated 6 times within each training session. A thirty second rest period was provided between repetitions. Thus, in total, each sensorimotor training session lasted approximately 18 minutes including rest periods.
  •   4 weekly sensorimotor training sessions
    Sensorimotor exercises were undertaken for thirty seconds on each of 3 sensorimotor training devices, and were repeated 6 times within each training session. A thirty second rest period was provided between repetitions. Thus, in total, each sensorimotor training session lasted approximately 18 minutes including rest periods.
