奇蹟的突破 Breakthrough

奇蹟的突破為真人真事改篇的電影。 2015年一月,跌落冰湖遇溺15分鐘的青少年John,經45分鐘搶救仍無生命跡象, 養母趕到醫院,大聲呼求聖靈幫助 "Holy Spirit, please come and give me back my son!",當刻John回復心跳,醫生也驚訝詫異,但主診醫生判斷他應過不了當晚 ,就算過得到,也會有嚴重的 腦部神經損。 當大部分人都失去信心, 唯獨是倔強堅持的媽媽, 相信他兒子是一個戰士, 他會為自己的生命而作戰,同時媽媽願意放下自己的執迷與控制慾, 她降服於主,願祂帶領一切。整個小鎮為John禱告, 三個星期後,John完全康復出院。

John神蹟地生存且完全康復, 是因為媽媽對他的愛,整個小鎮的人對他的愛,神對他的愛。 "Love is the most powerul force in the world" 。但同時間卻讓很多人對生命有所反思,為何是John?神在John身上要彰顯什麼目的?為何不是我身邊所愛的人?

You have purpose, you are loved!
或許每個人來到這裡
也有不同的目的吧!

物理治療怎樣幫助有平衡、協調和姿勢問題的小孩子



協助物理治療學會兒科專研組於TVB News(2018/7)的訪問,希望讓大眾多認識物理治療怎樣幫助有平衡、協調和姿勢問題的小孩子。






《我要為你呼吸》
為真人真事改編, 不只是一部愛情片, 更加讓人對生命更加尊重和有所反思。

四肢癱瘓 ,甚至不能自己呼吸的Robin, 不單努力生存,更精彩地活出生命,照亮他人。

電影中,牧師出現了兩次都是說,上帝會將苦難帶給他最喜愛的人。人遇到苦難,難免會經歷失望、痛苦 、挫敗、 憎恨、埋怨、絕望... 所以當主角第一次聽到那牧師的說話是絕對不能接受,但之後再有一位牧師說相同的說話的時候- 是啊!神的安排總有祂的美意!

Robin因為妻子的愛,由本應只有幾個月的壽命至精彩地活了三十多年, 更改寫了患有嚴重殘障的人只可被囚醫院的命運。

我們活在過份追尋奇蹟的年代,但其實有愛便有奇蹟!

Newly designed astronaut suit with ideas like therasuit, help to strengthen the muscles!


The idea of skin-tight suit is from Penguin suit. Therauit's idea is also from there.



"Like the Pingvin suits, Dr Green hopes the new skin suit may have therapeutic uses on Earth.
Modified Pingvin suits have been used to help support and maintain the posture and limbs of people with movement problems, including children with cerebral palsy.
The researchers say the suit may one day benefit people who are bedbound."
 


Skin-tight space suits 'support astronauts' bones'



17 March 2014 Last updated at 02:18
 

Scientists have developed a skin-tight spacesuit to try to stop astronauts' spines expanding.

They hope the lightweight elastic material will mimic the force of gravity on the body.

Astronauts' spines can lengthen by up to 7cm (3in) with no gravity to compress the bones, painfully pulling on muscles and nerves.

Using designs by MIT, scientists at King's College London are refining the tailor-made suits for testing in space.

As astronauts' bones and muscles do less work to keep them upright once they experience weightlessness, they can also start to waste away.

All these factors can make them more likely to experience long-term back and other health problems on return to Earth.

The researchers say these issues are likely to pose an even greater challenge on extended missions such as proposed journeys to Mars.

Dr David Green, senior lecturer of human and aerospace physiology at King's College London, who is working on the suit, told the BBC: "When man takes the first small step on Mars, there is a strong possibility the space traveller could end up with a broken hip."

Italian and American tailors worked with the international team of scientists to make skin suits composed of multiple layers of elastic material.

The material is woven in two directions, in a way that gradually produces more tension, squeezing the body from shoulder to feet.

European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen will be the first to wear the suit in space during his mission in 2015.

Penguin suit
And Dr Green says if it is given it the nod of approval on that mission, UK astronaut Tim Peake could wear the suit on his mission to the international space station later that year.

Making skin suits to help astronauts counteract microgravity is not new - Russian scientists came up with the Pingvin or penguin suit in 1991.

But scientists have been attempting to make new suits to better mimic gravity and that are more comfortable to wear.

Like the Pingvin suits, Dr Green hopes the new skin suit may have therapeutic uses on Earth.

Modified Pingvin suits have been used to help support and maintain the posture and limbs of people with movement problems, including children with cerebral palsy.

The researchers say the suit may one day benefit people who are bedbound.

Dr Jerry Nolan, intensive care specialist at Royal United Hospital Bath, who was not involved in the research, said: "Studies have shown that critically ill patients can lose up to 15% of their muscle mass by the end of their first week in intensive care. Anything that helps to reduce this may have a positive impact on this group of patients.

"There would be a number of things that would need to be ironed out. The obvious potential problem is getting access to the patient for nursing care."

TheraSuit Method /TheraSuit密集運動訓練法

As a physiotherapist working with kids for years, I always strive to learn more in order to serve our kids better. Especially in this bustling and well developed city, our kids deserve an opportunity to receive the advanced treatemnts. Therefore, I went to Michican, USA to learn about the therasuit method, which has been widely used in 400 clinics worldwide with 120,000 patients has recieved the training. And I've become the 1 out of 3000 certified therapists. With the help the angels around, our centre has become the 1st centre in Hong Kong to provide the comprehensive therasuit method intensive training. We all know that, in order for the kids to improve (same principle for pianist and athlete), they have to recieve SPECIFIC training with enough FREQUENCY, INTENSITY and DURATION......These are the priciples for Therasuit training!



Vestibular System 前庭系統


Vestibular System 前庭系統

Where:
Vestibilar organs are situated in the inner ears next to the hearing organ (Cochlear).

What:
The structure composed of the utricle, saccule (to detect linear acceleration, e.g going forward,/ backwark; up/down);  and the three semicircular ducts (to detect angular acceleration, e.g. spinning, turning head, nodding head)


Responsible for:
  • Balance
  • Muscle tone
  • Spatial Sense (where you are in space)
  • Head orientation
  • Gaze stabilization (can't read if poor)
  • Motor coordination
  • Eye hand / eye foot coordination
  • "Feel" where you are
 
 
Responsible for reflex development
  • Vestibular Ocular Reflex (for gaze stabilization when moving, reading)
  • Vestibulospinal Reflex (to stabilize head and control erect stance in relation to gravity, under static and dynamic conditions)
  • Vestibular Collic reflex (righting reflex) (to maintain head horizontal gaze position in relative to gravity, independent of trunk movement; stabilize head in space)
  • Moro reflex
  • Tonic neck reflex (ATNR) (integrate at 3-4 months)
  • head righting reflex (TLR)
  • Positive support reaction
  • Parachute reflex
 
Disorders of the vestibular system
  • Developmental delays
  • Motor disco-ordination
  • Postural abnormalities
  • Balance problems
  • Poor spatial perception
  • Reading problems
  • Learning disabilities

Children with vestibular problems may have
  • ear pain
  • stomach pain
  • headache
  • visual disturbance
  • vegetative symptoms
  • walk to 1 side
  • delay development
  • presyncopal feeling
  • anxiety with hyper ventilation
  • learning disabilities
  • dizziness
  • visual acuity problems
  • poor spatial relationship (skip workds / letters when reading, disorganized writing)
  • nystamus
  • difficulty in dark
  • hearing loss
  • motion sickness
  • nausea
  • abnormal movement pattern, unsteady gait, clumsiness, poor posture, decrease eye hand/foot coordiantion

  • ear infection, otitis media
  • congenital sensorineural hearing loss
