Risk Screening and Assessment of Shoulder, Neck and Lower Back Discomfort.

Overview

Identifying high-risk factors that may lead to shoulder, neck and lower back discomfort and contributing to the primary prevention of disease progression.

Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
  • Study Primary Completion Date: August 1, 2021

Detailed Description

The purpose of this study is to design a self-assessment scheme for clinical assessment of shoulder, neck and lower back function and compare the consistency between clinical assessment and self-assessment. The body parameters (BMI, age, gender), daily activities (daily steps, sedentary), work and rest time (sleep time, quality) were collected through wearable devices, evaluating the risk factors of shoulder, neck and lower back discomfort.

Interventions

  • Other: Demographic data and range of motion.
    • The body parameters (BMI, age, gender), daily activities (daily steps, sedentary), work and rest time (sleep time, quality) were collected through wearable devices. The range of motion of neck and waist was collected through hand-held devices.

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Group 1: Patients with shoulder, neck and lower back discomfort
    • Patients with shoulder, neck and lower back discomfort.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Range of motion (ROM) of the neck
    • Time Frame: at least 2-week monitoring by wearable devices
    • Patients’ range of motion of the neck in all directions are measured using hand-held devices.
  • Oswestry Disability Index (ODI)
    • Time Frame: at least 2-week monitoring by wearable devices
    • Oswestry Disability Index of the neck is collected for the evaluation of neck functions.
  • Visual Analogue Scale (VAS)
    • Time Frame: at least 2-week monitoring by wearable devices
    • Visual Analogue Scale is collected for pain assessment.
  • Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RDQ)
    • Time Frame: at least 2-week monitoring by wearable devices
    • Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire is collected for the evaluation of lower back functions.
