This is a multi-centered randomized controlled trial to investigate the effects of "Remind-to-Move" (RTM) using wearable devices at home for promoting upper extremity recovery in stroke patients after discharge from subacute hospitals.
This is a proof-of-principle study to investigate the effects of "Remind-to-Move" (RTM) using wearable devices at home for promoting upper extremity recovery in stroke patients after discharge from subacute hospitals.
A multi-center, parallel-group, randomized controlled trial with blinded assessment was carried out in four hospitals. Eighty-four eligible participants who had suffered from stroke with less than 6 months and could slightly move their arms were randomly allocated to either an experimental, sham, or control group stratified by hemiplegic arm functional levels. Patients in the experimental group were treated by RTM using wearable devices, 3 consecutive hours daily, for 4 weeks. The sham group used sham devices. The control group received the usual care. A masked assessor evaluated the participants at 0, 4th, 8th and 12th weeks. Outcome measures included arm function tests, motor activity log, movement amount and percentage recorded by wearable devices. All patients allocated to treatment were included in intention-to-treat analysis.

The aim of this study was to determine the effects of an innovative child-friendly remind-to-move treatment (RTM) treatment by comparing it with constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) ...
Many individuals are often left with problems moving their arm and hand, months to even years after a stroke. Recent progress in research suggests the application of non-invasive brain sti...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on functional outcome in patients with acute stroke, the investigators conducted a sham-cont...
The hypothesis of this study is that chronic stroke survivors, more than one year post-stroke, with a motor problems in the lower extremity will be able to walk and move the affected leg ...
This study investigated whether electrical stimulation (ES) prior to a hand function training session for a total of eight weeks can better improve neuromuscular control and hand function ...
Heat stroke can be potentially damaging for people while exercising in hot environments. To prevent this dangerous situation, we designed a wearable heat-stroke-detection device (WHDD) with early noti...
The (pro)renin receptor [(P)RR] has been implicated as a renin/prorenin receptor, and plays a role in local renin angiotensin system activation. Our goal was to investigate whether a transgenic mouse ...
Early mobilization is inconsistently associated with the recovery of stroke. We aim to examine the effect of early mobilization on patients with acute stroke.
Stroke exacts an immense toll in sub-Saharan Africa where there are few resources, and stroke prevention research is limited. The aim of this study is to test the feasibility and preliminary efficacy ...
Hypertension is the most important modifiable risk factor for stroke. Few data are available on control of hypertension in younger ischemic stroke survivors.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
Discrete concentrations of energy, apparently massless elementary particles, that move at the speed of light. They are the unit or quantum of electromagnetic radiation. Photons are emitted when electrons move from one energy state to another. (From Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 11th ed)
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)
A condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
