In this study, we aim to show that a wearable compliant arm support consisting of inflatable bladders with adjustable straps to connect them to the waist and arm can meaningfully increase the reachable workspace of persons with post-stroke arm weakness.
Prospective observational cohort study, with 6 months follow up, to identify clinical, instrumental and genetic predictors of functional recovery in hospitalized patients undergoing intensive rehabilitation after stroke. All patients will be evaluated with a standardized protocol. Functional recovery will be assessed at the discharge and after a period of 6 months.
This explorative prospective study aims to assess the effects of heart rate variability biofeedback (HRV biofeedback) in patients with acute ischaemic stroke. Furthermore, the investigators aim to examine the impact of the intervention on cardiac autonomic function and further autonomic parameters such as sudomotor (sympathetic perspiratory gland function) and vasomotor function (sympathetic arterial function). Patients testing is going to be conducted at the Department of Neurology, University Hospital Carl Gustave Carus, Dresden, Germany.
The link between post-stroke pathways and patient sequelae have not yet been clearly defined. The main purpose is to identify the post-stroke life pathways components associated with sequalae at 3 months and 1 year after the acute stroke episode.
We plan to conduct a randomized controlled trial to examine whether usual rehabilitation plus an iPad application-based intervention improves post-stroke depression symptoms compared to usual rehabilitation alone. The purpose of this pilot randomized controlled trial is to investigate the feasibility of the final randomized controlled trial.
The investigators aim to explore the relationship between gut microbiota composition and earlier poststroke depression via 16S rRNA sequencing.
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of dry needling method in addition to neurodevelopmental therapy on spasticity, upper and lower extremity functions, balance and independence level in patients with stroke who have spasticity.
To describe the frequency and thresholds for sarcopenic obesity in neurodisabled persons and the fat and lean mass distribution based on various neurodisabilities
The study aims to evaluate the appropriateness of initiating oral anticoagulation for stroke risk reduction in dialysis populations with atrial fibrillation. Specifically, the study will assess the overall safety, tolerability, and efficacy of initiating treatment with Warfarin in patients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis and de novo atrial fibrillation.
Paired associative stimulation (PAS) is a non-invasive stimulation method which is known to modulate corticospinal excitability through mechanisms related to long-term potentiation and long-term depression. The purpose of this study is to determine the reliability of individual subject's response (i.e., change in corticospinal excitability) to PAS in patients with chronic stroke (>6 months) with upper limb motor deficits.
