HAptic Neurofeedback Design for Stroke

2019-10-23 13:11:48 | BioPortfolio


Interventional study with minimal risks and constraints, prospective, monocentric.


Many patients with stroke have a severe motor deficit in the upper limb impacting their independence. Electroencephalogram (EEG) Neurofeedback is a re-education technique that improves cerebral plasticity and motor gain in these people during the chronic phase of stroke. The visual feedback usually used tends to diminish the subject's attentional resources, while the proprioceptive feedbacks appear to be more effective on cortical excitability. Vibration feedback inducing movement illusion has been shown to be effective in healthy subjects, but has not been tested in people with stroke.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Trial that aims to show a new treatment is no better and no worse than the standard treatment.

A technique to self-regulate brain activities provided as a feedback in order to better control or enhance one's own performance, control or function. This is done by trying to bring brain activities into a range associated with a desired brain function or status.

Treatment technique in a virtual environment which allows the participant to experience a sense of presence in an immersive, computer-generated, three-dimensional, interactive environment that minimizes avoidance behavior and facilitates emotional involvement. (from Curr Psychiatry Rep (2010) 12:298)

Visual impairments limiting one or more of the basic functions of the eye: visual acuity, dark adaptation, color vision, or peripheral vision. These may result from EYE DISEASES; OPTIC NERVE DISEASES; VISUAL PATHWAY diseases; OCCIPITAL LOBE diseases; OCULAR MOTILITY DISORDERS; and other conditions. Visual disability refers to inability of the individual to perform specific visual tasks, such as reading, writing, orientation, or traveling unaided. (From Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p132)

The teaching or training of those individuals with visual disability.
