This retrospective cohort study aims to characterise outcomes for patients treated on an intensive care unit (ICU) with COVID-19 in England and Wales, one year after discharge from hospital. Outcomes will be compared with patients admitted as an emergency to an ICU for other conditions. The study will use existing national audit data linked to routine healthcare datasets.
This study aims to evaluate the safety and usability of a motorized mobility assistance exoskeleton (MAK). The procedure explores the use of the MAK exoskeleton during the static and dynamic rehabilitation sessions with the intention to evaluate the safety and usability of the device in the studied population. The protocol has been focused on defining how the device can be used appropriately in this population in a safe manner by rehabilitation specialists.The study also aims to assess the safety of clinicians implementing the intervention, as well as possible benefits derived from the use of the device. As a secondary outcome, efficacy measurements will be collected.
Hemiplegia is one of the most common sequelae of stroke. Stroke is the leading cause of disability in adults all around the world. Stroke survivors can suffer several neurological impairments and deficits which have an important impact on patient's quality of life and which increase the costs for health and social services. After stroke, impairments in ADLs and functional status, deterioration in health related quality of life can be seen. The purpose of this study is to Determine the effect of Aerobic exercise training on Balance, Walking capacity and quality of life in sub-acute stroke.
The general objective of this study is to determine if an early occupational therapy intervention together with the usual care at hospital discharge after suffering a stroke has a positive effect on the functional independence of the patient, compared with the control group that will have the usual care and rehabilitation. We designed a four-week OT intervention program with the support of the main caregiver in patients who have suffered a stroke with the aim of improving the functional result and facilitating the return home by providing knowledge to the caregiver about specific care and neurorehabilitation.
Introduction: Glycemic control in acutely ill stroke patients with hyperglycemia is vital. Although insulin is the choice of anti-diabetic agent during acute stage, it is not clear which insulin regimen is better in terms of glycemic control and prevention of hypoglycemia in hospitalized acute stroke patients who are usually on small frequent nasogastric tube feeding. The present study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of human insulin (regular insulin and neutral protamine hagedorn, NPH insulin) to analog insulin (basal insulin glargine and rapid acting insulin aspart) in hospitalized acute stroke patients with hyperglycemia. Justification: Analog insulins are developed by minor alteration of the amino acid chain which alters their pharmacokinetics and make them more physiological. However, these insulins are costly and are not widely available. Conventional human insulins are more commonly used in our country. Comparison of these two regimen is necessary in our own setting to optimize optimal glycemic management of hospitalized acute stroke patients. Methodology: In this single-center, open-label, randomized trial, 100 patients with acute stroke and hyperglycemia (capillary blood glucose ≥10 mmol/L on 2 or more occasions) or history of type 2 DM admitted in the in-patient Department of Neurology, National Institute of Neurosciences (NINS) & Hospital will be randomly assigned to receive human insulin or modern insulin therapy in 1:1 ratio. The study will be carried out from February to June 2021. Blood glucose (BG) will be monitored by standardized glucometer thrice a day and insulin dose will be adjusted daily. The primary outcome of the study will be the differences in glycemic control between groups, as measured by mean daily BG concentration during the hospital stay. Secondary outcomes include differences between treatment groups in any of the following measures: number of hypoglycemic events (BG <3.9 mmol/L), total daily dose of insulin, length of hospital stay, hospital complications and mortality.
By comparing with traditional aerobic exercise training (TAET), we investigate the effects of an intelligent cardiopulmonary rehabilitative system (ICRS) on cardiopulmonary fitness and patient satification among patients with chronic stroke.
This qualitative study aims to identify the needs and recommendations of both patients and healthcare professionals in terms of rehabilitation technology, more specific three pre-defined user scenarios. These scenario were developed based on brainstorm sessions with healthcare professionals from the rehabilitation ward of UZ Brussel and AZ Sint-Maria Halle. The purpose of this study is to create an overview of recommendations that will be used to develop the smart devices in a later stage of the SAIRE project.
It was aimed to determine the relationship between post-stroke imagination ability, balance, and functionality, and to compare the motor imagery skills of those who had stroke with compatible healthy individuals.
Patients with chronic stroke (>6 months after stroke) having unilateral upper limb hemiparesis will be recruited. Patients will maintain their usual inpatient rehabilitation including occupational therapy. At baseline (T0) and after 2weeks of enrollment (T1), Fugl-Meyer assessment (FMA) will be assessed at each time. And patients with the changes of FMA between T0 and T1 less than 3 points will be finally recruited. The enrolled patients will receive additional 30-min cathodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over the contralesional motor cortex for 10 consecutive weekdays, with maintaining their usual conventional rehabilitation. At T1 and immediately after 10-seessions of tDCS (T2) and 1 month after completing 10-tDCS session (T3), FMA, Actional Research Arm Test (ARAT), Box and Block Test (BBT) and electroencephalography (EEG) were measured.
Undernutrition is a frequent problem in hospitals (at least 30% of patients, SENECA-NHANES studies). Its impact on morbidity and mortality is well known in gerontology, oncology and intensive care. There are very few neurovascular studies dealing with the consequences of undernutrition present before the stroke. Indeed, most of the medical literature concerns only undernutrition acquired after a stroke. We propose to analyze medical data from a cohort of patients over 70 years of age thrombolysed and/or thrombectomized in the neurovascular department between the years 2014 and 2019.
