The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether Thromboelastography (TEG) parameters on admission might be predictive for early neurological deterioration in acute ischemic stroke patients, specifically for the DWI lesion evolution within the first week after stroke onset.
The purpose of this study was to examine the outcomes of postural stability, activities of daily living function, and motor capacity of persons after stroke who received transcutaneous electrical nerves stimulation (TENS) or functional electrical stimulation (FES), in addition to SR, in the post-stroke acute phase. Such persons were compared with others who received SR alone in order to determine if the addition of TENS or FES resulted in earlier or more effective recovery.
Stroke is one of the main causes of acquired adult disability in the UK. Many psychological problems can also occur post-stroke; this has a marked impact on health service usage. As such, there is an outstanding need to increase and improve psychological resources within stroke services. The investigators proposed to adapt and evaluate the effectiveness of an acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) group intervention for adult stroke survivors and their carers. The group will endeavour to promote positive adjustment and reduce levels of depression and anxiety. This study will have two parts.
A control and a post-stroke subject with right-side chronic hemiparesis were studied. The post-stroke subject underwent 30 sessions of balance-perturbed training while walking on an instrumented treadmill where the Balance Assessment Robot (BAR™) randomly delivered pushes to pelvis in various directions at various speeds and at various perturbation amplitudes. The investigators assessed kinematics, kinetics, electromiography and spatio-temporal responses to outward-directed perturbations commencing either at foot contact of the left or the right leg.
The objective of the present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of two home-based ergonomic intervention programs compared to a control group on the quality of life of caregivers of post-stroke patients
The study will include 20 patients after troke, randomly assigned to the experimental and control group (10 each). In both groups, the program with last for five days; walking and balance will be assessed before and after the program. Both groups will receive regular neurophysiotherapy; in addition, the experimental group will exercise each day by playing REWIRE games, while the control group will perform standing balance exercises.
Objective: To make use of admission Modified Functional Ambulation Category (MFAC) as a stratification tool to reveal profiles of functional outcomes of patients with stroke in inpatient rehabilitation. Design: This was a retrospective, descriptive study of the demographic, functional outcomes of patients with stroke in an inpatient rehabilitation centre. A total of 2,722 patients completed a stroke rehabilitation program from 2011 to 2015 were recruited.
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) or transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been used for the modulation of stroke patients' motor function by altering the cortical excitability. Recently, more challenging approaches, such as stimulation of two or more sites or use of dual modality have been studied in stroke patients. In this study, simultaneous stimulation using both rTMS and tDCS (dual-mode stimulation) over bilateral primary motor cortices (M1s) was investigated to compare its modulatory effects with single rTMS stimulation in subacute stroke patients.
This study investigated whether electrical stimulation (ES) prior to a hand function training session for a total of eight weeks can better improve neuromuscular control and hand function in subacute stroke individuals and change electroencephalography-electromyography (EEG-EMG) coherence, as compared to the control (sham ES).
Background: Manual lifting is a common method to train the sit-to-stand, in which repetition is important. Alternate training regimen by mechanical device may be opted to avoid staff injury. Objective: The purpose of the study is to investigate the repetitive mechanical training to improve the independence of standing up. Methods: A total of 38 participants were randomised into two groups. Both groups had no lesser than 100 repetitions or 10 minutes/day of training sessions. Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Modified Rivermead Mobility Index (MRMI), Sit-and-Reach test (SRT), Five-Repetition Sit-to-Stand Test (5XSST), Sit-to-Stand Test from the Balance Master® (SST) were assessed in baseline, after 5 days and 10 days of training.
