NCT ID: NCT03947645 Enrolling by invitation - Chronic Stroke Clinical Trials

Intensive Neurorehabilitation and Stimulation in Chronic Stroke Patients

Start date: May 2, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Chronic stroke patients (> 6 months) with severe motor impairment of the upper extremity will be enrolled in this single-centre, randomized controlled clinical trial (RCT). All patients will take part in two blocks of high-intense motor training with concurrent neuromuscular stimulation of the paretic upper extremity. In a randomized, cross-over block design, patients will receive transcranial stimulation of either the ipsi- or contralesional hemisphere.

NCT ID: NCT03917511 Recruiting - Chronic Stroke Clinical Trials

Effects of Combined Robot-assisted Therapy With Mirror Priming in Stroke Patients

Start date: December 17, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of combining robotic-assisted training and mirror therapy on upper extremity motor and physiological function, daily functions, quality of life and self-efficacy in stroke patients.

NCT ID: NCT03849794 Active, not recruiting - Chronic Stroke Clinical Trials

Chiropractic Care Plus Physiotherapy Compared to Physiotherapy Alone in Chronic Stroke Patients: a Pilot Study

Start date: January 15, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The Investigator recently conducted a study in patients who had suffered from a stroke where it investigated whether similar findings are observed following a single session of chiropractic care.36 The key findings from this study was that in a group of chronic stroke patients, with lower limb muscle weakness, plantar flexion muscle strength increased on average by 64.6% following a chiropractic care session and the change in muscle strength appears to be modulated by cortical factors as opposed to modulation at the spinal level. Based on the promising results of this initial study now planning to perform a pragmatic pilot clinical trial that will investigate the effects of 4 weeks of chiropractic care on clinical measures associated with stroke rehabilitation and function

NCT ID: NCT03780296 Completed - Hemiparesis Clinical Trials

Implementing Technology Enhanced Real Time Action Observation Therapy in Persons With Chronic Stroke

Start date: September 5, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is a feasibility study to alter the Microsoft Kinect software to be used as a rehabilitation tool. The prototype used is still in the early developing stage. The purpose of this research study is to develop a prototype of altered Microsoft Kinect Software and determine its use in improving the function of the study subjects' weaker extremities. The altered software will allow a viewing of the mirror image of the involved limb as it is moved. However, the image that is viewed will reflect normal movement even if the limb cannot move normally. By viewing normal movement of the weaker limbs the "mirror neuron" network in the brain will become activated and will ultimately improve the function of the weaker side.

NCT ID: NCT03758846 Completed - Chronic Stroke Clinical Trials

Cognitive-motor Exergaming for Reducing Fall Risk in People With Chronic Stroke

Start date: December 4, 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Post-stroke, people suffer various sensorimotor and cognitive deficits that lead to impaired balance control and gait functions thereby increasing the risk of falls. Despite undergoing exercise training in stroke rehabilitation to enhance balance control and gait functions, the risk of falls in the community-dwelling chronic stroke population persists. Given that motor and cognitive functions are required as a part of daily living, performing activities at home and in the community become challenging. Additionally, performance of daily living activities involves the simultaneous performance of motor and cognitive tasks known as dual-tasking. Based on previous literature, dual-tasking leads to deteriorated motor and/or cognitive task performance known as cognitive-motor interference. The pattern of cognitive-motor interference varies with the complexity and type of motor or cognitive task being performed. Dual-task gait and balance training has been adopted by many and identified to be a beneficial method to enhance overall functions. These studies have used Virtual-reality interface that provides immediate biofeedback, and may implicitly address certain domains of cognition (visuospatial awareness, attention) associated with risk of falls. However, such training is unable to train explicit cognitive domains such as executive functions that are highly associated with balance control, gait functions, daily living activities, and fall risk. Therefore, this pilot study aimed to identify the efficacy of cognitive-motor training using Wii-fit Nintendo to reduce cognitive-motor interference during dual-tasking.

NCT ID: NCT03752788 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

Dual-Task Training With Different Priority Instructional Sets on the Gait Parameters in Patients With Chronic Stroke

Start date: May 15, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Balance is controlled through a complex process involving sensory, visual, vestibular and cerebral functioning which get affected by various neurological disorders such as in stroke. Different types of exercises are designed to target to cope up with the imbalance developed due to these neurological disorders. This study aimed to compare the efficacy of dual-task training using two different priority instructional sets in improving gait parameters such as self-selected velocity, fast speed, step length, and stride length in chronic stroke patients.

NCT ID: NCT03688165 Recruiting - Stroke Clinical Trials

The Effects of Gait Rehabilitation After Stroke by Treadmill-based Robotics Versus Traditional Gait Training

Start date: June 20, 2018
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

This multi-site randomized controlled trial aims to investigate the effectiveness (increase of the walking speed in the 10 Meter Walk Test - 10MWT) of the robotic treatment with exoskeleton or end-effector system compared to the conventional rehabilitative treatment for the gait recovery after stroke, and to compare the possible different efficacy of end-effector and exoskeleton systems in the various post stroke disability frameworks. All the eligible subjects admitted to rehabilitation centers, both in subacute or chronic phase will be recorded. The experimental group will follow a set of robotic gait training by on the treadmill based robotic systems which does not provide the over ground gait training (Lokomat Pro - Hocoma AG, Volketswil, Switzerland; G-EO System - Reha technologies, Italy). While, the controll group will follow a traditional gait training composed of all those exercises which promote the recovery of walking ability (please, see the interventions details).

NCT ID: NCT03637270 Recruiting - Chronic Stroke Clinical Trials

Protein Supplementation for Chronic Stroke Treatment

Start date: December 19, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Stroke patients usually have difficulties with moving and are venerable to secondary problems such as sarcopenia and strength loss. These problems may accelerate the disability process during aging. It is well known that exercise helps to maintain or promote human fitness. This study is conducted to explore the beneficial effects of exercise and protein supplement on fitness and body composition among patients with chronic stroke.
