NCT ID: NCT04846205 Enrolling by invitation - Stroke Clinical Trials

Relationship Between Sleep Apnea Syndrome and Patent Foramen Ovale Among Victims of Cryptogenic Ischemic Stroke

Start date: March 24, 2021
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and patent foramen ovale (FOP) are considered as risk factors for stroke. OSAS generates a pressure increase in the right cavity during inspiratory efforts, which increases the number of right-left shunt embolus and therefore the risk of stroke. OSA and FOP are often thought as two separate entities, however, due to their high frequencies, they sometimes coexist and can influence the pathophysiology of each other. More researches are needed in this area to confirm this complex association and its role in triggering stroke.

NCT ID: NCT04775693 Enrolling by invitation - Stroke, Acute Clinical Trials

Robotic Exoskeleton Gait Training During Acute Stroke Rehabilitation

RERC
Start date: May 12, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The objective of this RCT is to explore the clinical, functional and neurophysiological effectiveness of RE-assisted (Robotic Exoskeleton) early intervention gait therapy in stroke patients during inpatient and outpatient stroke rehabilitation as compared to traditional gait training in three groups: 1) RE; 2) RE-Standard of Care (SOC) and 3) SOC. We will evaluate the short and long-term effects on functional mobility, clinical, neurophysiological, community participation and quality of life.

NCT ID: NCT04642599 Enrolling by invitation - Clinical trials for Healthy Individuals (Controls)

Bimanual Motor Skill Learning Through Robotics in Chronic Cerebellar Stroke Survivors and Healthy Individuals

Start date: January 29, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

To test capacity of chronic cerebellar stroke patients and healthy individuals to learn and retain a complex bimanual motor skill, trained on the neurorehabilitation robot REAplan® (bimanual version).

NCT ID: NCT04607811 Enrolling by invitation - Stroke Clinical Trials

Behavioral Economics and Mobility After Stroke (BE Mobile)

BE Mobile
Start date: November 16, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

In this pilot, randomized controlled trial, the investigators will compare the preliminary effectiveness of a gamification with social incentives 8 week intervention to increase physical activity for adults with stroke.

NCT ID: NCT04592757 Enrolling by invitation - Stroke Clinical Trials

Immersive Care - Virtual Mirror Therapy

Start date: December 14, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this implementation study is - primarily - to investigate the feasibility, acceptability, tolerability of a new virtual reality application in stroke patients, and -secondarily - to gain initial insights in the preliminary clinical effects of this application.

NCT ID: NCT04584645 Enrolling by invitation - Stroke Clinical Trials

CardioFlu
Start date: September 21, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A 6-month prospective, digital randomized controlled trial targeting approximately 49,000 individuals to evaluate the effectiveness of an influenza vaccination intervention during influenza season for people with cardiovascular conditions

NCT ID: NCT04515693 Enrolling by invitation - Acute Stroke Clinical Trials

Exploring Psychometric Properties of a New Version of the 6MWT in the Acute Stroke Population

Start date: March 25, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to assess inter- and intra-rater reliability of the 6MWT in people with acute stroke who require various levels of assistance with walking.

NCT ID: NCT04441177 Enrolling by invitation - Stroke Clinical Trials

Effects of PlayStation®VR on the HRQOL in Stroke Patients Undergoing Inpatient Rehabilitation

Start date: July 29, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Compared to conventional rehabilitation therapy, the full-immersive commercial game (CG) system, in the form of available video game, could safely provide more positive effect on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and motor function in post-stroke patients. The study aims to perform the research from 2019/7/1 to 2021/6/30 and enrolls a total of 80 participants. Stroke participants are recruited from the rehabilitation ward of CGMH hospital. The inclusion criteria are (a) first-time unilateral cerebral stroke, (b) stroke onset less or equal to 1 year, (c) admission to the rehabilitation ward, (d) ages 20-80 years, (e) spasticity of paretic arm ≤ grade 2 in the Modified Ashworth Scale, and (f) no active medical problems such as fever, pneumonia, or scabies. The exclusion criteria are (a) brainstem or cerebellar stroke, (b) epilepsy history, including photosensitive epilepsy, (c) previous or active heart diseases, such as myocardial infarction or angina, (d) visuospatial problems related to stroke, such as hemianopia or hemineglect, (e) paretic upper limb reaches Brunnstrom recovery stage VI, (f) severe aphasia, (g) severe cognitive impairment, and (h) poor cooperation with assessments. All participants are randomly allocated to study group and control group. Participants in the control group receive conventional rehabilitation therapy over 50 minutes on weekdays. Participants in the study group receive conventional rehabilitation therapy over 50 minutes on weekdays and 7 sessions (flexible schedule in different day) of PlayStation®VR of 20 minutes each in the main 16-day study period. Pre-intervention, post-intervention, and 3-month follow-up HRQOL will be assessed by the Stroke Impact Scale 3.0. Motricity Index and Fugl-Meyer Assessment, Functional Independence Measure, and arm movement ratio will also be checked before intervention, after intervention, and at 3-month follow-up. The safety outcome, intervention-related adverse events or any serious adverse events, during study period will be recorded.

EvaQ
Start date: October 27, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Assess the safety and efficacy of the Q Revascularization System to remove thrombi and emboli from the neurovasculature in patients experiencing an acute ischemic stroke

NCT ID: NCT04437056 Enrolling by invitation - Clinical trials for Spasticity as Sequela of Stroke

Nerve Transfers in Post-stroke Spasticity

Start date: September 1, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Stroke is nowadays a leading cause of disability with devastating sequelae. Upper limb spasticity is one of them. Nevertheless, not all the muscles are equally affected, as some may turn spastic or paretic and other remain intact. This unique pathophysiological mosaic dictates a precise therapeutic plan. Existing spasticity treatment has significant drawbacks due to its unspecific targeting and short duration. A causal, life-lasting treatment, precisely adapted to every single patient's needs and to disease pattern, is currently missing. Hyperselective muscle denervation and subsequent cognitive reinnervation with appropriate unaffected donor nerves may break the pathological spastic circuit and provide volitional muscle control. With this pioneering study we will perform cognitive nerve transfers to spastic muscles and will prospectively investigate their effects on clinical, electrophysiological, molecular-biological and histological level. Accurate donor nerve selection will be for the first time quantified through motor unit number estimation with high-density needle electromyography. This revolutionary concept can open the window to a new era of therapeutic possibilities for stroke victims.
