The sit-to-stand and dynamic weight-shifting ability of stroke patients is highly associated with walking performance. Therefore, in order to improve the dynamic weight-shifting ability in sit-to-stand and parallel or tandem standing, a real-time visual or auditory feedback is used in our design to allow patients to realize the weight-bearing condition (by using load cells) in both sound and affected legs immediately. It can help patients to learn to control muscle to shift weight effectively which will improve patients' walking performance. By integrating physical therapy planning with electro-mechanical technology, the goal of this study is to develop a standing balance training system by requiring patients to control their center of pressure (COP) in performing sit-to-stand and maintain a standing posture via the use of their core and lower extremity musculature.
The project pilot tests an innovative Stroke Home health Aide Recovery Program (SHARP) designed to improve mobility and reduce falls in post-acute home bound stroke patients. SHARP will accomplish this by expanding the home-based rehabilitation team to include a corps of advanced HHAs specially trained as stroke "peer coaches." Coaches provide mentorship and support to generalist HHAs as they collaborate with patients and families to implement the therapeutic regimens prescribed by patients' physicians and rehabilitation therapists.
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 study was to evaluate the use of the Tip Stim device to achieve coordinated movement and grip force in stroke patients under conditions of active and passive stabilization of the trunk.
Stroke is a leading cause of disability worldwide affecting both male and female especially in older people. Functional independence and locomotion are hampered in stroke, therefore, affecting their quality of life. Objective: To find the comparative effects of activity base therapy vs strength training on gait performance in chronic stroke patients.
The aim of the present study was to quantitatively assess the risk factors that may affect the re-occurrence of a CVD event and the use of a commercially available mobile application Samsung Health for the assessment of parameters of exercise tolerance and the ECG M-Trace Base II application for the assessment of cardiological parameters.
Chronic stroke patients often have impaired balance on reactive balance control. Task specific exercises are important part of the fall intervention in daily activities of life should be incorporated during the rehabilitative services Objective: Effects of perturbation based balance training in reactive balance control in chronic stroke patients.
Stroke is ranked as the number fifth cause of death and a main cause of disability in the United States. It affects the arteries which supply blood to and within the brain. If the blood supply to the brain is disrupted, it will not be able to receive oxygen and the nutrients which are transported by those arteries. This leads to the death of brain cells having a magnificent effect on the function of that part.
Trunk control is an important factor which is disturbed after the stroke. The literature reviews suggest that trunk exercises are required to achieve good trunk stability which is essential for balance, daily functional activities and higher function tasks. By keeping these facts in view present study aims at evaluating the efficacy of PNF techniques & conventional trunk exercise to improve trunk control in recovery stage hemiplegic patients Objective: To determine Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) Techniques to improve bed mobility, transfer and early trunk control in Stroke patients
Ischemic stroke is a major public health issue, likely to cause functional disability. It is well known that sleep has an impact on brain plasticity, and after an ischemic stroke, studies have shown subjective sleep quality alterations and sleep architecture abnormalities. Furthermore, there is no clear guideline showing the usefulness of a systematic sleep investigation following an ischemic stroke. The aim of the study is to identify retrospectively correlation between polysomnographic abnormalities (sleep apnea, periodic limb movements, disturbed sleep architecture…) and functional recovery after an ischemic stroke. The study also assesses the impact of sleep abnormalities on survival, and the risk of new cardiovascular event.
