The presented study is an explorative prospective study. First, it focusses on the longitudinal analysis of outcome quality in stroke treatment (12 months). Particularly, it addresses patient reported quality of life after inpatient stroke treatment and influencing factors. Second, it focusses on the feasibility and acceptance of a standard set of measures capturing outcome quality of medical care in stroke patients.
This is a pilot randomised control trial to assess the safety, compliance, and acceptability of delivering a 6-week programme of remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) to stroke patients suffering with fatigue, and study feasibility. A minimum of 34 patients who have suffered an ischeamic or haemorrhagic stroke and who suffer from fatigue, will be recruited and randomised to receive a 6-week programme of either RIC or a sham intervention.
This trial will compare an Implicit Learning Approach (ILA) to usual care, during the rehabilitation of mobility post stroke. It is a multicentre, assessor blind, cluster randomised controlled pilot trial, with embedded feasibility study. It also includes a nested qualitative evaluation, designed to explore the views of participants and therapists.
Abstract Method: Participants with a diagnosis of stroke will be randomly assigned to the intervention group and the attention control group at a 1:1 ratio. Participants received 2 sessions per week for 12 to 15 sessions. Outcome measures including the Participation Measure- 3 Domains, 4 Dimensions (PM-3D4D), Canadian Occupational Performance Measure(COPM), Activity Measure for Post-Acute Care (AMPAC) Outpatient Short Forms, Wisconsin Card Sorting Task (WCST), and Participation Strategies Self Efficacy Scale (PS-SES) will be administered at baseline (T1), post-intervention (T2), 3-month follow-up (T3), 6-month follow-up (T4), and 12-month follow-up (T5).
This pilot study is part of a master's thesis. In the rehabilitation of stroke patients should be compared whether individual balance training has a greater effect than group balance training. The result is determined based on the walking speed.
A multicentre, ambulance-delivered, prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded endpoint (PROBE) study to assess the effects of pre-hospital blood pressure (BP) lowering initiated in ambulance setting on (i) hematoma volume at 24 hours in patients with confirmed intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH), and (ii) safety in patients with confirmed acute ischaemic stroke and other conditions that were initially suspected as acute stroke (i.e. stroke mimic)
This mixed-method study includes a randomised controlled trial and an exploratory qualitative study, and aims to examine the effects of caregiver-delivered affective touch on depressive symptoms, state of attachment security, self-esteem, and perceived family harmony among stroke survivors, and to explore the mediating effect of attachment security and how an intervention may affect depressive symptoms from stroke survivor's perspective. A total of 184 survivor-caregiver dyads will be recruited from various non-governmental organisations. The dyads will be randomly allocated to intervention (IG) and control (CG) groups, stratified by the survivor's attachment style. IG caregivers will be taught to deliver a 15-minute affective touch intervention to stroke survivors. To address the attention effect, CG caregivers will be asked to sit with the survivors during a 15-minute fine motor coordination exercise. Both activities, affective touching and fine motor exercise, will be performed for 12 weeks (3 times/week), and the outcomes mentioned earlier will be measured at baseline, 12 and 36 weeks after study entry.
Despite numerous kinds of evidence on functional health and CNS protection of intermittent fasting after injuries were found in many brain-, and spinal cord-damaged animal models, there has yet to be any clinical study of intermittent fasting after acute ischemic cerebral infarction. The aim of this study is to evaluate the neurological, functional and clinical efficacy of intermittent fasting in patients after acute ischemic stroke.
Strokes leads to significant morbidity and mortality, and hypertension is the most important risk factor for strokes. It is estimated that up to 10% of patients with hypertension have the underlying, treatable condition of primary aldosteronism. Hence, we hypothesize that the prevalence of primary aldosteronism is high in patients with strokes, a complication of long-standing hypertension. Patients admitted with an acute stroke to the Acute Stroke Unit, Changi General Hospital, will be screened for Primary Aldosteronism three months post-stroke, and confirmatory tests will be done with saline-infusion test.
The major problem in stroke survivors that is being addressed in this research project is walking asymmetry, i.e., difference between the legs during walking (e.g. steps on the more affected side are longer than the other). A potential solution to this problem is using new technology like virtual reality during walking training to make stroke survivors have a better sense of their asymmetry. A second problem that we aim to address in this study is whether asymmetry is accurately felt by the stroke survivors and how we can address it. Our ongoing work on the effects of virtual reality on learning new walking tasks in stroke survivors indicates that virtual reality maybe particularly important for those with walking asymmetry. In this study, we plan to recruit stroke survivors who have such asymmetries during walking and have them learn a new walking task in virtual reality. We will also test the stroke survivors to determine if there is a relationship between how well they learn the new task with their ability to feel asymmetry accurately.
