This study aimed to investigate if peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) paired with action observation (AO) would augment motor training in promoting corticomotor excitability for the paretic hand in people with stroke. Twenty subjects in chronic stage of stroke were exposed to 3 different interventions involving one-hour PNS or sham PNS paired with 30 minutes of AO or sham AO, all followed by 30 minutes of finger abduction training in 3 separate sessions.
The aim of this case-controlled observational cross-sectional study is to investigate the test-retest reliability, validity and clinical utility of a rapid robotic assessment of finger proprioception using a passive gauge position matching tasks in MS and stroke subjects.

This study aims at investigating whether bilateral movement-based training with computer games could augment motor function of paretic upper limb and improve quality of life in sub-acute stroke patients.
There are few published data on the patterns of parenchymal imaging abnormalities in a context of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). The objectives of the present study were to describe the patterns of parenchymal lesions associated with CVT and to determine the lesion sites.
Cardioembolism is a postulated mechanism of an embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS). The investigators will measure endothelial glycocalyx, aortic elastic properties, oxidative stress, and their association with left ventricular (LV) and left atrial (LA) function in ESUS and age- and sex-adjusted healthy individuals.
Early term rehabilitation initiated after stroke should be based on motor learning principles and neural plasticity. To achieve motor learning and neural plasticity, exercises consisting of intense and repetitive training should be given according to the patients' functional level. The neurodevelopmental treatment-Bobath (NDT_B) approach is based on motor learning principles. In literature, studies that show the early term effects of NDT-B on functional recovery are inadequate. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects NDT-B applied in the early term of stroke, on postural control, functional movement, balance and activities of daily living.
Randomized trial of patients with cerebrovascular accident (CVA) receiving traditional and body weight supported (BWS) gait training. Participants are enrolled and randomized upon entry into acute care and gait is evaluated within 48 hours of discharge from the rehabilitation hospital. Gait analysis is used to determine which of the two groups achieved gait parameters most similar to the normal gait of an age-matched population.
Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) aiming at assessing the efficacy of an interdisciplinary multi-component and personalized multi-factorial intervention for reducing falls at one year post-enrolment in comparison to the usual care in a sample of community dwelling elderly (age ≥65 years), with or without Parkinson's Disease and/or previous Stroke.
To date, evidence of the effects of robotic training combined with OnabotulinumtoxinA focal treatment for spasticity is limited. The objective of this study were to compare the effects of robotic training against conventional rehabilitation on functional recovery, strength and spasticity, in stroke patients who underwent OnabotulinumtoxinA focal treatment for spasticity. We performed a single-blind, randomized, controlled trial involving 24 outpatients with diagnoses of stroke, divided in two groups (experimental and control group). Experimental group received specific robotic training for the upper limb with the device Armotion/Motore (Reha Technology AG, Olten, Switzerland). Our primary outcome was Fugl-Meyer Assessment Motor Scale (FMA). Secondary outcome were Action Research Arm Test (ARAT), Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS), Medical Research Council Scale (MRC) and surface Electromyography (EMG). 14 healthy age-matched controls underwent one session of sEMG acquisition to collect normative data.
The purpose of the study was to investigate the feasibility of using a virtual reality- based dual task training of upper extremity tracking while treadmill-walking, to improve walking and balance performance in post stroke survivors
