Stroke is a global healthcare issue that causes increased death rates. Good trunk stability is essential for balance and extremity use during daily functional activities and higher-level tasks. The anticipatory activity of trunk muscles is impaired in stroke patients. The trunk is the central column of the body; therefore, proximal trunk control is a prerequisite for distal limb movement control, balance, and functional activities. The purpose of the study is to highlight the most appropriate rehabilitation technique for trunk stability.
The goal of this clinical trial is to evaluate the efficacy of a musical interventionand non-invasive brain stimulation in neurological patients. The main questions it aims to answer are: - to evaluate the residual neuroplastic processes in DOC state related to music exposure - to determine the putative modulation of the aforementioned processes and the clinical outcome of DOC patients by non-pharmacological strategies, i.e., electric (tDCS) and music stimulation - to evaluate the impact of this intervention on caregiver's burden and psychological distress. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of three different music-listening intervention groups. Primary outcomes will be clinical, that is based on the neurologist's observations of clinical improvement, and neurophysiological, collected pre-intervention, post-intervention and post-placebo.
Vagal Nerve Stimulation is a novel proven therapy for patients with chronic ischemic stroke. The primary objective of this registry is to assess the safety of vagal nerve stimulation for stroke recovery through monitoring the occurrence of serious adverse events associated with the surgical procedure or subsequent paired rehabilitation protocol. This registry will monitor patients undergoing VNS for stroke recovery in the Mount Sinai Health System and collect clinical and procedural details, objective outcomes, and patient-reported outcomes associated with vagal nerve stimulation for stroke recovery.
The goal of this clinical trial is to study the effects of aerobic exercise during the early rehabilitation after ischemic stroke. The main questions it aims to answer are: - How is the recovery of motor function affected by regularly walking during the first 90 days after an ischemic stroke? - Does regularly walking during the first 90 days after ischemic stroke affect cognition, physical comfort and the immune system? Participants will exert a heart rate controlled walking programme of walking 3-5 times 30-45 minutes per week. Researchers will compare the recovery of the walking group to a control group without any demands regarding physical exercise.
The aim of this study is to determine patient opinions and experiences about threshold electrical stimulation treatment applied to stroke patients.
The CBI registry is a prospective, interdisciplinary, multimodal observational registry of patients with covert brain infarction. Methods: A standardized workup in analogy to manifest ischemic stroke including cerebral MRI, long-term rhythm monitoring (3 x 7 days ECG), echocardiography, laboratory work-up and risk factor assessment as well as noninvasive angiography of the cervical and intracranial arteries will be performed.
This is cross-sectional study. By comparing kinematic analysis between stroke and healthy subjects in various directions, this investigation analyzes the compensatory kinematic movement for reaching task in stroke survivors
In this study, it is aimed to examine the effect of rigid taping on hyperextension control in stroke patients with knee hyperextension in the stance phase of gait. Hypothesis Ho: Rigid taping has no effect on the control of knee hyperextension in stroke patients. H1: Rigid taping has an effect on the control of knee hyperextension in stroke patients.
The aim of this study is to examine the effects of PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) and CTAR (Chin Tuck Against Resistance) exercises on swallowing rehabilitation in stroke patients. In addition another aim is to examine the effects of these exercises on the swallowing function, quality of life, functional independence and functional oral intake of individuals, and to investigate the superiority of the exercises to each other in line with these features.
The purpose of the study is to measure the outcomes of a standard care, an ultrasound guided mini-invasive percutaneous procedure, performed on recent stroke patients on reduces pain, increases function & quality of life The primary objective of the project is to reduce shoulder and/or knee pain in patients who have had a stroke so that they can more readily engage in rehabilitation. Secondary objectives are to reduce analgesic medications, increase independence and improve range of motion, to promote non-drug treatment measures in the medical toolkit, and to include an interdisciplinary care team in patient selection for interventions.
