FEVRIER study is an observatory of hospitalizations in cardiology units in sub-Saharan Africa.
The aims of this study are to (i) develop exergames by using Kinect system for training UE function in patient with stroke; and (ii) to test the game's feasibility and effects in a group of patient with chronic stroke.
The purpose of this study is to assess the ability of the Fluids Monitor to detect hemispheric bioimpedance asymmetry associated with acute brain pathology in patients presenting with suspected Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS).
Many people who suffer from irregular heartbeats (atrial fibrillation) which might cause stroke, need to take blood thinners to prevent it. It is important to prescribe the correct dose of blood thinners to the right patients to ensure the treatment works however avoiding complications. In the recent years, new blood thinners have been available; they require less laboratory tests and fewer visits to a doctor compared to older therapies. This study will look at how the general practitioners in the UK prescribe blood thinners according to the instructions given by the product manufacturer. We will use primary care data that is routinely collected by the general practitioners about their patients but without any possibility to identify individual patients. The results will help us to understand the magnitude of deviation from instructions in order to ensure that the patients benefit from the treatment.
To apply Bold-fMRI technology to observe and compare the differences of task-related activation of relevant brain cortex region in stroke hemiplegic patients and healthy subjects after finger grasping movement.
The study evaluates the impact of the new organisational models developed in the framework of the BeyondSilos pilot service in order to provide ICT supported integrated health and social care to elderly patients
This is a observational validation study. The Stroke Clinical Decision Support Tool ( InstaDx) , an information technology application will be adapted and developed in accordance to evidence based clinical practice guidelines ( Level IA). Neurology Residents will be using the InstaDx CDST to improve their diagnostic accuracy and the findings will be validated against the review of a stroke subject expert. The study hypothesis is that Clinical Decision Support Tool used by neurology residents will have an agreement of >0.77 when compared to Stroke Expert (gold standard) in diagnosing type of ischemic stroke.
This study will be the first study to use ischemic preconditioning (IPC) as an intervention to improve stroke rehabilitation. IPC is a well studied, well tolerated intervention which has been shown to improve regional blood flow, motor neuron excitability and muscle function in multiple patient groups and in young, healthy subjects. Because IPC targets three physiological systems which are all affected by stroke, we hypothesize that repeated bouts of IPC during the first days to months following stroke (when the majority of recovery occurs) will make traditional rehabilitation strategies more effective.
The aim of this study is to determine whether early administration of aspirin in acute ischemic stroke patients treated with systemic thrombolysis is safe and can improve outcomes due to decreasing the number of early rethromboses.
- Are there differences in immediate effects of stepping training with and without the use of visually weight-taking machine (VWTM) on variables relating to well-controlled walking and walking symmetry in ambulatory patients with stroke? - Are there differences of 4-week stepping training with and without the use of VWTM on variables relating to well-controlled walking and walking symmetry in ambulatory patients with stroke?
