NCT ID: NCT03702517 Completed - Clinical trials for Chronic Stroke Patients

Lateral Stair Walking Training After Chronic Stroke

Start date: January 3, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The experimental group received 15 minutes of lateral stair walking exercise and 30 minutes of traditional physiotherapy (strengthening exercise, balance training and gait training) each time. The measures were done by one experience physical therapist (not involve in the intervention) before receiving the intervention and at weeks four, eight, and twelve. It took 45 minutes for each subject to complete all measures each time.

NCT ID: NCT03699605 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

Development and Feasibility Analysis of Verbal Expressive Skills Management Programme (VESMP) for Patients With Broca Aphasia

Start date: February 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The present study was conducted to develop the verbal expressive skills management programme (VESMP) to enhance verbal expressive skills of patients with severe Broca aphasia. To determine the efficacy of VESMP in improving the quality of life and level of satisfaction of aphasic stroke patients.Control group received traditional therapy and experimental group received therapy through VESMP programme on their smart phones.

NCT ID: NCT03689387 Completed - Clinical trials for Cerebral Vascular Disorder

Evaluation of Physical Activity Practice (AP) After Cerebral Vascular Stroke (Stroke)

Start date: October 23, 2017
Study type: Observational

Physical activity is defined by any movement produced by the skeletal muscles responsible for an increase in energy expenditure. The Stroke Council of the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends, in prevention after the occurrence of a first stroke, the practice of moderate to intense physical activity for 40 minutes a day, three to four times a week (Lackland et al., 2014). The World Health Organization (WHO) also recommends the practice of at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity endurance activity or at least 75 minutes of endurance activity of sustained intensity per week, adapted to the possibilities of the patient (World Health Organization 2010). Unfortunately, the majority of stroke patients have activity below recommendation (Rand et al., 2009). The main hypothesis of this work is that the amount of AP, measured by self-questionnaire, is insufficient, and below current recommendations in patients with stroke, after return home. Given the multiple physical, psychological, social, and economic benefits of PA practice, it is also important to identify the habits and challenges that patients experience with PA, so that they can be better informed. advise and guide them to reach AP stroke recommendations.

NCT ID: NCT03683901 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

The Effect of Electrical Stimulation on Impairment of the Painful Post-Stroke Shoulder

Start date: December 27, 2010
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Examination of the effects of short-term use of TENS and t-NMES on passive pain-free ROM of the painful post-stroke shoulder. Treatments are compared with no stimulation.

NCT ID: NCT03683160 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

A Cognitive-Augmented Mobility Program

Start date: March 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This project will combine best-evidence gait and mobility training with best evidence cognitive strategy training to produce a new cognitive-augmented mobility intervention that is expected to optimize long-term functional mobility outcomes for those living with stroke. More importantly, the new cognitive-augmented mobility program (CAMP) will address two crucial outcomes that do not occur with current approaches: 1. Maintenance of mobility gains after discharge from formal rehabilitation and 2. Transfer of skills learned in rehabilitation to real-world community living. This project will result in a new, fully defined intervention, and will provide effect size and cost estimates to design a future appropriately powered randomized controlled trial (RCT).

NCT ID: NCT03665220 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

Effects of Two Home Ergonomics Programmes in Post-stroke Patients

Start date: May 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The main objective of the clinical trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of two home ergonomics programmes, by reference to a control group, on functional capacity and quality of life in post-stroke patients.

NCT ID: NCT03660618 Completed - Hypertension Clinical Trials

LSFG-SKIN, Laser Speckle Flowgraphy

Start date: May 23, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this project is to quantify normal and abnormal skin blood flow regionally in different areas of the body(face, extremities, over burns and wounds) at baseline and over time in response to treatment or environmental changes, such as temperature, light and pressure.

NCT ID: NCT03653299 Completed - Clinical trials for Post-stroke in Association to Phototherapy

Effects of Phototherapy on Gait and Balance of Post-stroke Individuals

Start date: June 13, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Hemiparesis and/or hemiplegia is one of the most common clinical signs of stroke, characterized by partial or complete loss of motor function, resulting in varying degrees of impairment and disability. The aim of this study is evaluate the acute effects of application of phototherapy to detect if this therapeutic approach may be beneficial in gait and balance post-stroke individuals. For such, 10 volunteers, with a history of injury (stroke) between 6 months to 5 years, with deficit in functional capacity in the gait due spasticity of extensor muscles of the affected limb, specifically the Triceps Sural. The evaluation will consist of three-dimensional gait analysis, muscle activity during gait, mobility, static and functional balance, and mobility of volunteers.

NCT ID: NCT03645902 Completed - Stroke, Acute Clinical Trials

Comparison Between TOF and SWAN Sequences in the Detection of Arterial Occlusion in Acute Ischemic Stroke Using MRI

Start date: March 1, 2014
Study type: Observational

Optimizing the MRI protocol in acute ischemic stroke remains a challenging issue. In this field, susceptibility-weighted sequences have proved their superiority over T2. Besides the strengthened susceptibility effect, enhanced susceptibility-weighted angiography (eSWAN) sequence provides also a time-of-flight (TOF) effect, allowing the exploration of the intracranial arterial circulation. The objective of this study is to compare eSWAN and 3D TOF, considered as the reference, in the detection of arterial occlusion in acute stroke.

NCT ID: NCT03642444 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

Replacing Canes With an Elasticated Orthosis in Chronic Stroke Patients: The Influence on Gait and Balance. A Series of N-of-1 Trials

Start date: January 8, 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study aims to investigate the effect of an elasticated orthotic garment "Thera Togs" on walking ability and balance in currently cane using chronic stroke subjects (minimum 6 months post stroke) using a series of N-of-1 Trials.
