2014-10-28 21:53:22 | BioPortfolio


1. Study objective To evaluate the effect of robotic-assisted gait training combined with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as compared to that of robotic-assisted gait training on gait function of subacute stroke patients

2. Subjects subacute stroke patients who cannot walk independently

3. Methods

- Group 1: Robotic-assisted gait training with anodal tDCS (30 min) + conventional gait training on ground (30 min)

- Group 2: Robotic-assisted gait training with sham tDCS (30 min) + conventional gait training on ground (30 min)

- Duration of treatment: 2 weeks, 5 times a week

- Evaluation: Baseline, 1 day after the treatment, 12 weeks after the treatment
