The July issue of The Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy is now available. This issue has a systematic review on motor-cognitive dual task training in people with neurological disorders by Fritz and colleagues, as well as 5 research articles. In a randomized controlled pilot study, Stoller and colleagues investigated the efficacy and feasibility of feedback-controlled robotics-assisted treadmill exercise for cardiovascular rehabilitation in persons with severe impairments early after stroke. Mattlage and colleagues used body worn accelerometers to characterize sedentary time in people with acute stroke and explored the relationship between sedentary time and physical function. Karpatkin and colleagues examined the effects of intermittent versus continuous walking on distance walked and fatigue in persons with multiple sclerosis. In a randomized controlled trial, Martin and colleagues examined the effects of a specific cueing program for falls management in persons with Parkinson disease and freezing of gait. Persch and colleagues performed a rasch analysis of the wrist and hand items of the Fugl Meyer.
