We will investigate the efficacy of a newly developed exercise device (RehabTouch) for people in the subacute stage after a stroke compared to a traditional tabletop exercise program. RehabTouch uses embedded sensors that can track and record the patient's direction and degree of movement as they perform exercises described on a computer.
This study aims to evaluate the hypothesis that thrombectomy devices plus medical management leads to superior clinical outcomes in acute ischemic stroke patients at 90 days as compared to medical management alone in appropriately selected subjects with the Target Mismatch Profile and an MCA (M1 and M2 segment) or ICA occlusion or BA who have endovascular thrombectomy initiated between 6-24 hours after last seen well.
This study aims to design and verify a multi-mode smart assistive device system for Stroke Rehabilitation by using EEG, fMRI, IMU and questioners
This study evaluates the verbal, cognitive, emotional, and neural efficacy of a choir singing intervention in chronic aphasic patients and their caregivers. Using a cross-over RCT design, half of the participants receive a 4-month singing intervention during the first half of the study and half of the participants during the second half of the study.
Gait training in stroke is a complex process of motor learning although restoring patients ability to walk would not prepare the individual with the challenges faced in the real environment. The aim is not simply walking in controlled environment, but to achieve dynamic walking. Dynamic walking is the ability of an individual to adjust to the changing surfaces and terrains. thereby returning to achieve active participation in the community. Hence, recovery of walking ability is the primary goal when planning treatment for patients with stroke.
The main objective of the PROOF trial is to investigate efficacy and safety of normobaric hyperoxygenation (NBHO) as a neuroprotective treatment in patients with acute ischemic stroke due to large vessel occlusion likely to receive endovascular mechanical thrombectomy (TBY) in a randomized controlled clinical phase IIb trial.
This is a pilot randomised controlled trial investigating a combination of unilateral strength training (cross-education) and mirror therapy for the rehabilitation of upper limb impairment following a stroke. This study has been conducted as part of a PhD qualification at the Institute of Technology Sligo in Ireland with all assessments being conducted at the institute and all therapy sessions taking place at the participant's home. The study was conducted in conjunction with Sligo University Hospital and it attained ethical approval through the relevant University Hospital Ethics Committee.
Rationale: Depression is a frequent complication after a stroke. In stroke guidelines several recommendations focus on early screening, and treatment off depression after stroke. Introducing clinical practice guidelines into routine daily practice however, is a difficult process. In order to make the recommendations applicable to clinical practice a toolkit was developed (the Post Stroke Depression-toolkit), which provides assessment tools for the early detection of depression after stroke, and a set of interventions in case of a positive screening for (risk on) depressive symptoms. Objective: to investigate the feasibility of the Post Stroke Depression-toolkit in daily practice. Study design: An explanatory mixed-methods, before-and-after study design. Study population: Nurses working on the neurological wards of one university hospital and two general hospitals in the Netherlands were included in the study. Additionally, data were obtained from patient charts.
This study will investigate the feasibility of delivering swallowing therapy using surface electromyography as a means of biofeedback to patients with dysphagia in the acute stroke setting. It will investigate trends in efficacy by comparing biofeedback therapy to usual care. The results will inform future dosing and efficacy studies.
A multi-site, interventional, non-comparative, single-arm trial to evaluate the safety of the ReWalk Restore device in subjects with mobility impairments due to ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke.
