A prospective, multicenter, single-arm objective performance criteria trial to investigate the safety and efficacy of SINOMED ADPAT for Recanalization Therapy in acute large-vessel occlusive stroke.
The Life University Center for Chiropractic Research is conducting a research study to better understand how 12-weeks of chiropractic care differentially affects the post-rehabilitation brain electrical patterns and body movement patterns of individuals who have experienced hemorrhagic versus ischemic stroke The study will involve visits to the Life University Center for Chiropractic Research (CCR) in midtown Atlanta. During the 12 weeks of focused care, chiropractic visits could be several times a week depending on the care plan. In addition to the chiropractic care, individuals will receive a physical examination and three follow-up assessments. The assessments in the CCR will include a non-invasive evaluation of the brain wave patterns using electroencephalography (EEG), completion of a few surveys, a balance assessment and a movement assessment. Qualified individuals will receive study treatment and care at no cost.
Stroke and Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) represent a major cause of long-term disability among survivors. Many psychological difficulties can also occur including: depression, anxiety, fatigue, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This has a marked impact on health service usage. Despite certain interventions being offered to support stroke survivors and individuals with brain injury, there is still an outstanding need to increase and improve psychological resources for this population. This research proposes to evaluate the effectiveness of a group therapy intervention, using a model called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), for stroke survivors and adults with ABI. This ACT group aims to promote positive adjustment and improve wellbeing, whilst also aiming to reduce levels of distress. The research will comprise of two parts (one quantitative and the other qualitative).
This observational, prospective cohort, pilot study aims at investigating usability, operational, and economical factors around 'traditional' and 'technology-supported' approaches to promote a healthy life-style in stroke survivors, after discharge from an in-patient clinic. The investigators primary objective is to evaluate the adherence to prescribed behavioral changes in dieting and exercising up to one year after clinical discharge. This pilot study will follow and document the observations of two groups of patients, one offered a 'traditional' and another one a 'technology-supported' approach by the healthcare provider. The investigators secondary objective is to gain insights on how to efficiently (and securely) facilitate remote counselling once patients get discharged from the clinic.
The investigators will perform a pilot 4-week at home study with 48 individuals with stroke and 10 therapists working with stroke patients to examine the feasibility and effect of a wearable focal muscle vibration device on upper limb strength and function.
Randomized clinical trial comparing two monitoring strategies, the use of a 48-hour Holter (routine care branch) and an event recorder for 7 days (intervention branch). Patients admitted for cryptogenic stroke will be included. Enrollment and randomization of patients will be carried out during the index case hospitalization, while follow-up will be done on an outpatient basis until day 7.
Subjects will receive non-invasive stimulation of nerves on their arm and intensive motor training of their arm. The timing of the stimulation in relation to the training will vary by group.
Individuals who experienced a stroke over one year ago will be randomly assigned to receive 1 of 4 different conditions of brain stimulation. All individuals will receive therapy of the hand and arm following the stimulation. This study will try to determine which brain stimulation condition leads to the greatest improvement in hand and arm function.
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.
The main objective of this monocentric prospective study is to evaluate the amplitudes and angular velocities of extension of the hand and wrist joints during passive mobilization by a physiotherapist in healthy subjects and stroke patients with spastic hands. Secondary objectives: - To compare amplitude and angular velocity values between the group of stroke patients and the group of healthy volunteers, - To compare amplitude and angular velocity values according to the two types of mobilization (i,e, thumb or fifth finger), - To assess pain due to mobilization in stroke patients.
