WalkAide Compared to Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) in Stroke Patients

2014-08-27 03:15:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this clinical trial is to establish equivalence or incremental benefit of the Walkaide device to standard of care Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) for patients with foot drop due to stroke.

Description

This is an un-blinded, randomized, parallel group, controlled trial with a group-sequential design and a single interim analysis. The purpose of this study is to compare the performance of the WalkAide device with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) versus Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) in patients with sub-acute and chronic stroke.

Effect of muscle tone on ankle kinetics during gait with ankle-foot orthoses in persons with stroke.

Background Individuals exhibiting hemiplegia and increased ankle plantar flexors muscle tone following stroke are frequently prescribed an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) to regain functional ambulation. Th...

Hamstring Autograft for Foot and Ankle Applications.

Effect of different designs of ankle-foot orthoses on gait in patients with stroke: A systematic review.

Ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) are used to improve the gait of patients with stroke.

Variations of ankle-foot orthosis-constrained movements increase ankle range of movement while maintaining power output of recumbent cycling.

Previous research investigated recumbent cycle power output (PO) from the perspective of knee and hip joint biomechanics. However, ankle-foot biomechanics and, in particular, the effect of ankle-foot ...

Clubfoot is a three-dimensional deformity of the foot in which the foot is twisted in three mutually perpendicular planes from the normal shape of the foot. Of the various treatment methods that are a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)

The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.

Deformity in which the foot is misaligned with respect to the TALUS in the ANKLE JOINT. While mostly congenital, as in CLUBFOOT, acquired deformities are included. Acquired talipedes are often associated with other foot deformities such as SYNDACTYLY and POLYDACTYLY.

The region of the lower limb between the FOOT and the LEG.

Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.
