Real-time neurofeedback aims to alter brain activation patterns through online feedback of ongoing brain activity using magnetic resonance imagining (MRI). Stroke survivors will be randomised to receive 3 sessions of real or sham neurofeedback. This study aims to investigate whether: 1) stroke survivors can maintain alterations in brain activity after the feedback is removed, 2) neurofeedback training leads to improvements in movement of the hand and arm, 3) neurofeedback training leads to changes in brain structure and function, 4) variability in response across people can be understood.
This comparative efficacy study will be based on a 3-armed controlled trial: bilateral robotic priming combined with bilateral arm training (bilateral RT+BAT), bilateral robotic priming combined with mirror therapy (bilateral RT+MT), and the control intervention (bilateral RT+IOT). The goal of this 4-year project is to provide scientific evidence of the comparative efficacy research of hybrid interventions based on unilateral vs. bilateral approach to upper limb rehabilitation in subacute and chronic stroke.
This study was aimed at patients with newly diagnosed stroke / TIA associated with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. We will observe the effect of early using rivaroxaban anticoagulation on hemorrhagic transformation, and explore the predictive value of multi-mode MRI infarct volume / MMP-9 on hemorrhagic transformation after anticoagulation therapy.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of virtual prism adaptation therapy on hemispatial neglect in chronic stroke patients. This study is the randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled, cross-over design. Total 10 patients will be allocated randomly to either real virtual prism adaptation therapy or sham therapy with the wash-out period of more than 2 weeks. Two sessions (20min/session) per day, for 5days (total 10 sessions) will be provided. Behavioral outcomes will be measured before and after completing a total of 10 sessions therapy.
This study will test laryngeal adaptation in speech and swallowing function in healthy adults, in patients with cerebral stroke, and in patients with spinocerebellar ataxia type 6. The findings from this proposal will be the first step toward implementing rehabilitation techniques that help patients to prevent speech and swallowing errors before they occur.
This study seeks to explore the efficacy of several control mechanisms for the device and the impact of a device training program on its utility as a neuroprosthetic and training tool for upper limb recovery.
Assess the ability of the Visor System to detect hemispheric bioimpedance asymmetry
Rural patients with life-limiting illness are at very high risk of not receiving appropriate care due to a lack of health professionals, long distances to treatment centers, and limited palliative care (PC) clinical expertise. Secondly, although culture strongly influences people's response to diagnosis, illness and treatment preferences, culturally-based care models are not currently available for most seriously-ill rural patients and their family caregivers. Lack of sensitivity to cultural differences may compromise PC for minority patients. The purpose of this study is to compare a culturally-based Tele-consult program to usual hospital care to determine whether a culturally-based PC Tele-consult program leads to lower symptom burden in hospitalized African American and White older adults with a life-limiting illness.
The aim of this study was to identify the assistance effect of Ankle Assist Robot v1 developed by Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd., Korea) by comparing 1. gait function during overground gait in three conditions (with robot-assist torque on/with robot-assist torque off/without robot) 2. the energy expenditure during treadmill gait in three conditions (with robot-assist torque on/with robot-assist torque off/without robot) 3. the result of Timed up and go test in two conditions (with robot-assist torque on/without robot)
The primary objective of the study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of SPG stimulation with the ISS in patients with an acute ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation initiated within 24 hours from stroke onset.
