The first sub-objective is to investigate the influence of driving simulator training on attention and the potential to increase the likelihood of returning to driving by clients with acquired brain injury in the chronic stage. The second sub-objective is to determine whether the proposed set of tests is appropriately designed as a criterion for inclusion in the driving simulator research. The theoretical part summarizes the knowledge about acquired brain injury and its consequences, cognitive functions, impairments, car driving, and legislative regulations or possibilities for driving skills testing. Furthermore, this section provides information about rehabilitation by acquired brain...

Altmanová, Šárka ; Hoidekrová, Kristýna (advisor) ; Nováková, Olga (referee)
DIPLOMOVÉ PRÁCE Jméno, příjmení: Bc. Šárka Altmanová Vedoucí práce: PhDr. Kristýna Hoidekrová, Ph.D. Title: Distance therapy and telerehabilitation in occupational therapy: contemporary use in patients after acquired brain injuries Abstract: Acquired brain injuries (ABI) are the most represented type of injuries in neurorehabilitation. In the Czech Republic, there is a shortage of outpatient occupational therapists. The involvement of telerehabilitation appears to be a possible solution to the lack of therapists. These methods are already being used with a good effect around the world. The aim of this thesis is to compare the possibilities of telerehabilitation against conventional occupational therapy in patients with ABI. A partial goal is to undertake a SWOT analysis of telerehabilitation and evaluate the communication platform eAmbulance. There are four single case studies. The patients are aged between 27-81 years (two women and two men) with different severity of right-sided hemiparesis. These patients underwent interventions of 60 minutes per week for a period of four weeks. The content of each therapy was different. Patients filled in a feedback questionnaire following each intervention. The results show that a large variation of approaches from conventional therapies can be used. The...

Michálková, Nikol ; Krivošíková, Mária (advisor) ; Nováková, Olga (referee)
Name, Surname: Nikol Michálková Thesis supervisor: Bc. Mária Krivošíková, M.Sc. Title: Executive function assessment in patients with acquired brain damage: Translation and clinical use of the "Weekly Calendar Planning Activity" Abstract: Executive functions are absolutely essential for everyday life and when they are violated, a person is often severely limited in all areas of their life. People with a disorder of these functions tend to have problems, for example with starting an activity and planning individual steps, or are unable to complete the activity correctly and efficiently. Executive functions are localized primarily in the area of the frontal lobes and when they are damaged, an executive deficit is manifested. Clinically, the impairment of executive functions manifests itself in very diverse ways. The degree and severity of the disability depends on many factors, such as the etiology of the acquired brain damage, its location or education of the patient. The aim of this bachelor's thesis is the one-way translation of the "Weekly Calendar Planning Activity" test from English to Czech language and its subsequent verification in practice on selected patients with acquired brain damage. This is a so-called performance test that evaluates executive functions using an activity (filling in a...

OF THE DIPLOMA THESIS Name: Bc. Klára Šťastná Thesis supervisor: Mudr. Martina Hoskovcová, Ph.D. Thesis consultant: Mgr. Bc. Anna Rejtarová Title: Mapping of the most common difficulties in the performance of activities of daily living in patients with Parkinson's disease. Abstract of the diploma thesis: The aim of the diploma thesis is to map the most common difficulties in people with Parkinson's disease in the field of personal activities of daily living and to compare the subjective perception of difficulties in activities in relation to the motor symptoms. The secondary goal is to compare the objective evaluation of motor symptoms with the subjective one. The theoretical part summarizes findings of Parkinson's disease. Subsequently, motor symptoms, which include rigidity, bradykinesia, tremor, posture and balance disorders are described. Various treatment options are also described. In the occupational therapy part, there is the influence of the symptoms of the disease on the occupational performance and the quality of life of people with Parkinson's disease. The work continues with a description of an evaluation and intervention in occupational therapy. In the practical part, the questionnaire created by the author is presented, which is used to collect data in quantitative research in the...

The effect of maternal diabetes on embryonic cardiovascular development and fetal programing
Čerychová, Radka ; Pavlínková, Gabriela (advisor) ; Nováková, Olga (referee) ; Neckář, Jan (referee)
Maternal diabetes mellitus negatively affects embryonic development and increases the risk for congenital malformations. Besides direct teratogenicity, diabetic intrauterine milieu can predispose an individual to chronic diseases later in life, including cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and diabetes mellitus, in a process termed fetal programing. Molecular mechanisms of embryonic and fetal responses to maternal diabetes are still not fully elucidated. Using mouse model, we show that maternal diabetes induces gene expression changes in the hearts of developing embryos. The most significant changes in the expression of 11 selected genes were detected at the developmental stage associated with completion of cardiac septation, myocardial mass expansion, and increased insulin production in the embryonic pancreas. These affected genes encode products involved in the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, a crucial process in heart development. Using immunohistochemistry, we detected increased hypoxia in the diabetes-exposed hearts at the critical stage of cardiac development. Correspondingly to increased hypoxia, the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF1α) and vascular endothelial growth factor A was increased in the heart of diabetes-exposed embryos. Based on our results indicating the...
