IpsiHand System for Rehabilitation of the Arm and Hand After Stroke

2019-10-14 10:28:32 | BioPortfolio


This study aims to assess whether the NeuroLutions Upper Extremity Rehabilitation System (known as IpsiHand) will help stroke patients regain strength and functional movements in their arm. The IpsiHand system involves using a hand robotic device that is controlled by brain waves, known as a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI). By using the device, participants will be harnessing brainwaves from the side of their brain not affected by stroke to control the robotic device on the hand that is weaker from the stroke.


This trial aims to assess the effectiveness of the NeuroLutions Upper Extremity Rehabilitation System, known as IpsiHand, on functional motor recovery and neuroplasticity for chronic stroke survivors with hemiparesis (N=27). The IpsiHand system involves a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) as a control for a robotic hand orthosis. Participants will complete 16-32 weeks of home therapy with the IpsiHand system.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

The therapeutic intermittent administration of oxygen in a chamber at greater than sea-level atmospheric pressures (three atmospheres). It is considered effective treatment for air and gas embolisms, smoke inhalation, acute carbon monoxide poisoning, caisson disease, clostridial gangrene, etc. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992). The list of treatment modalities includes stroke.

Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.

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.
