Postural balance control is based on complex mechanisms involving several sensory and motor systems. Maintaining postural equilibrium requires muscle activation to oppose the balance threats. Stroke may be associated with a variety of deficits, including impaired upper limb functions , poor postural stability, impaired reactive balance control, and delayed responses to external balance perturbations. Individuals with stroke are at high risk for falls in all post-stroke stages. Falls may have long-term serious consequences and can lead to more disability. Upper extremity movements have a relevant contribution in controlling balance and enhance the ankle and hip strategies for maintaining upright postural stability among healthy adults. Upper extremities movements also, constitute important elements in both equilibrium and protective reactions. Appropriate corrective responses of both the upper and lower extremities are essential to regain balance control and reduce the risk of falls. More studies are required to know about the inﬂuence of arm movements on postural balance control in individuals post-stroke. The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of the improvement of the upper extremity functions on postural balance control in patients with stroke.
This epidemiological survey is to analyze the prevalence rate of stroke and exposure rate of risk factors in sampling population aged 40 years and over (born before December 31,1975) in Dehui City, to provide scientific basis for pertinent prevention and control of stroke in Jilin Province, and to provide valuable data for the high-risk groups to carry out regular follow-up and standardized management.
The aim of the study was to analyze the importance of the position of the body and the examined upper limb on the parameters of movement coordination and hand grip strength in various age groups of people after a stroke and healthy individuals.
Stroke remains one of the leading causes of acute mortality and chronic disability worldwide. The annual incidence of stroke is 795,000 in the United States and the absolute numbers of people suffering from stroke and the global burden of stroke are increasing. Stroke survivors experienced a variety of neurological symptoms and recovery can be slow and incomplete.
As this will be a pre-market registration trial, in which devices will be used in accordance with appropriately labeled indications, pre-study notifications and approval requests will be addressed with CFDA. All trial results will be shared with CFDA.
This protocol will developed an assessment of the T-FLEX device controlled by Brain-Computer Interface in patients with Stroke.
In acute ischemic stroke caused by intracranial large vessel occlusion, rescue intracranial stenting has been recently a treatment option to achieve recanalization in patients with the failure of mechanical thrombectomy. Nevertheless, there are few studies supporting this beneficial treatment in two cerebral circulations. We aimed to analyse whether the use of rescue intracranial stenting would improve prognosis of patients at 3 months.
The purpose of this study was to assess the effect or ordinary and differential learning based physiotherapy for torso control, balance and gait on subjects with ischemic stroke in the second phase of rehabilitation
The Covid-19 pandemic and its health and societal consequences raise fears of a deterioration in the management of non-Covid-19 pathologies, particularly those requiring rapid treatment. These fears relate in particular to strokes and acute myocardial infarctions (AMI), the two most frequent diseases, for which emergency treatment is a major factor in the vital and functional prognosis of patients. They are based on activity data from the emergency services, which have shown a sharp drop in admissions for AMI and strokes at the start of the pandemic. This drop is interpreted as being partly linked to a tendency for patients to delay or even give up care, which may be explained by fear of contamination, the desire not to solicit already overworked healthcare professionals and overload in emergency structures. In addition, studies have shown that the time required to treat AMI during the pandemic phase in China has been extended due to the new organizations set up in healthcare institutions in connection with this major health event. In addition, certain inequalities in access to care, already identified during the non- pandemic period among AMI and stroke patients, are likely to be accentuated by the new healthcare organizations set up during the pandemic period. The investigators are interested in the impact of changes in healthcare utilization and reorganization within hospitals, related to the Covid-19 pandemic, on the quality of the care pathway for stroke and AMI patients in the Aquitaine region. The investigators also study the role of the socio-demographic, socio-economic and geographical characteristics of these patients as factors of inequality of access to care during this period. The project is based on data collected within the Aquitaine Cardio-Neuro-Vascular Registries (CNV), an exhaustive cohort of stroke and AMI patients treated by a health care institution in Aquitaine. They are an excellent tool for describing the care pathway and outcomes of these patients, from the onset of symptoms to the end of the acute episode. An additional collection is planned to collect all the organizations and activities set up within the hospitals in Aquitaine. The study period, from January 2019 to August 2020, provides sufficient time before lockdown and after the date of the end of lockdown, to analyze trends in the quality of pathways, according to the various reorganizations of the health system and changes in the use of care linked to the management of the Covid-19 pandemic. The project identifies the reorganizations with the most striking consequences on the quality of care for patients suffering from non Covid-19 pathologies. It analyzes the changes in the behaviour of patients and their family and caregivers in their use of care during the Covid-19 pandemic and their impact on the care pathways and results. It contributes to the policy of reducing inequalities in access to care and to the definition of a health strategy in the event of a major health crisis.
Left sided spatial neglect is a common yet potentially debilitating phenomena associated with right hemisphere stroke. Heilman defines neglect as "the failure to report, respond, or orient to novel or meaningful stimuli presented to the side opposite of a brain lesion that cannot be attributed to either sensory or motor deficits". Numerous studies have demonstrated the impact of spatial neglect in right hemisphere stroke patients on both rehabilitation outcomes, and subsequent functioning in the community. Given the highly significant negative impact of spatial neglect, numerous treatment approaches have been attempted, yet most lack evidence in terms of efficacy. One promising exception has been prism adaptation training (PAT), which several recent reviews reported improved independence as a benefit of this treatment, both in terms of ameliorating the severity of neglect and demonstrating generalization to important functional behaviors. Still, much remains unknown regarding PAT, and not all studies have shown positive results. At Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital, a number of providers have added PAT to the standard PT, OT and speech that stroke patients receive during their inpatient stay. As part of a process improvement initiative the investigators identified 57 patients that received PAT training between June 2016 and September of 2019. The investigators propose a retrospective case-control study examining the impact of PAT treatment on the rehabilitation outcomes for these patients. Outcome variables to be assessed include the measures of spatial neglect (Catherine Bergego Scale), functional independence measures (FIM), length of hospitalization and discharge destination. The investigators hypothesize that patients who received 4 or more PAT sessions during their inpatient rehabilitation stay will show improvements both in measures of neglect and functional independence as a result of this treatment.
