Adherence to rehabilitation interventions is associated with functional outcomes (e.g. independence in daily activities, return of motor function) after stroke. Low adherence to rehabilitation home programs is common after stroke. Interventions delivered via mobile health applications demonstrated positive effects on adherence to health behaviors (e.g. medication routines, smoking cessation). The investigators developed the iADAPTS mobile application to support adherence to Strategy Training. Strategy Training is an iterative rehabilitation intervention the promotes goal setting, planning, and self-monitoring after stroke. This study examines the effects of the iADAPTS mobile health application relative to a workbook on adherence to Strategy Training after stroke.

Individuals with cognitive impairments after stroke sustain significant disability in their daily tasks, and account for a significant proportion of stroke-related healthcare costs. The pr...
Stroke survivors have higher risks of falling compared to other healthy non-stroke adults. Stroke patients' balance can be trained by Kinect-based training that enable user friendly and in...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of an exercise training strategy called high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to moderate intensity continuous exercise (MICE), on wal...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a novel treadmill training intervention can improve the gait stabilization strategy used by individuals who have experienced a stroke.
The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of dual-task training at impairment, disability, and participation levels for stroke survivors and investigate possible factors aff...
Strength training can increase function in individuals with stroke. However it is unclear which type of strength training is most effective and feasible.
Physical exercise contributes to improving stability against nerve injury caused by ischaemic stroke. Here we aimed to preliminarily investigate the effects of continuous endurance training (CET) and ...
Although robotic-assisted gait training (RAGT) is becoming a standard method in stroke rehabilitation, its effect on chronic stroke patients is uncertain.
Until now studies report inconclusive results as regards the effectiveness of exclusive use of robot-assisted training and clinical indications in stroke patients.
This article presents a Training Diary as a strategy for professional training under the framework of a thoughtful practice. As such, it is a tool that allows access to knowledge through narrative thi...
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
A strategy for purchasing health care in a manner which will obtain maximum value for the price for the purchasers of the health care and the recipients. The concept was developed primarily by Alain Enthoven of Stanford University and promulgated by the Jackson Hole Group. The strategy depends on sponsors for groups of the population to be insured. The sponsor, in some cases a health alliance, acts as an intermediary between the group and competing provider groups (accountable health plans). The competition is price-based among annual premiums for a defined, standardized benefit package. (From Slee and Slee, Health Care Reform Terms, 1993)
