Clinical Trials [3990 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Lower Limb Flexor Synergy Training in Chronic Stroke

This study evaluates whether a 4-week exercise training program focusing on lower limb flexors can improve lower limb motor function late after stroke. It is hypothesized that there would ...

Efficacy of the Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Techniques for Lower Limb Recovery in Stroke Patients

This study is to compare the efficacy of two types of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) in lower limb motor function recovery in stroke patients. The intervention will be tDCS (transcr...

New Technology for Individualised, Intensive Training of Gait After Stroke

The overall purpose of this project is to establish the added value of training with the Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) exoskeleton system as part of regular rehabilitation intervention progr...

Combined Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Robot-Assisted Upper Arm Training in Subacute Stroke Patients

This study was designed to establish the clinical evidence for effect of Robot-Assisted upper arm training and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on upper limb function of subacu...

Robotic and Conventional Hand Therapy After Stroke

Weakness is a major cause of disability in stroke survivors. Rehabilitation techniques are often not effective in restoring full function of the upper limb. Specifically, many individuals ...

Spatiotemporal gait characteristic changes with gait training using the hybrid assistive limb for chronic stroke patients.

Robotic rehabilitation has been attracting attention as a means to carry out "intensive", "repetitive", "task-specific", gait training. The newly developed robotic device, the Hybrid Assistive Limb (H...

Transitions sit to stand and stand to sit in persons post-stroke: Path of centre of mass, pelvic and limb loading - A pilot study.

To explore the movement patterns utilized by persons post stroke from the simultaneous perspective of pelvic and limb loading with the path of centre of mass during the movement transitions sit to sta...

Effectiveness of upper-limb robotic-assisted therapy in the early rehabilitation phase after stroke: a single-blind, randomised, controlled trial.

Upper-limb robotic-assisted therapy (RAT) is promising for stroke rehabilitation, particularly in the early phase. When RAT is provided as partial substitution of conventional therapy, it is expected ...

Effects of mental imagery training combined electromyogram-triggered neuromuscular electrical stimulation on upper limb function and activities of daily living in patients with chronic stroke: a randomized controlled trial.

Previous studies have suggested that electromyogram-triggered neuromuscular electrical stimulation is beneficial in enhancing the upper limb function of patients with stroke. However, mental imagery t...

Effects of virtual reality therapy on upper limb function after stroke and the role of neuroimaging as a predictor of a better response.

Virtual reality therapy (VRT) is an interactive intervention that induces neuroplasticity. The aim was to evaluate the effects of VRT associated with conventional rehabilitation for an upper limb afte...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An apraxia characterized by the affected limb having involuntary, autonomous, and purposeful behaviors that are perceived as being controlled by an external force. Often the affected limb interferes with the actions of the normal limb. Symptoms develop from lesions in the CORPUS CALLOSUM or medial frontal cortex, stroke, infarction, and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB SYNDROME, corticobasal degeneration).

Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.

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.

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
