Improving Ambulation Post Stroke With Robotic Training

2014-08-27 03:19:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to look at a new rehabilitation technique for individuals who have suffered a stroke and have difficulties walking. This study is designed to compare robot-assisted (Lokomat) rehabilitation therapy with standard physical therapy in order to improve walking post-stroke. This research project will be conducted as a pilot randomized controlled trial that compares the effectiveness of Lokomat versus conventional physical therapy in improving the ambulation and gait of chronic stroke patients. The project will provide important pilot data that could indicate whether or not the effectiveness of Lokomat training is superior to that of standard physical therapy and if a definitive and larger clinical trial is warranted.

Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity and the risk of stroke recurrence in patients with a history of minor ischemic stroke in Japan: a retrospective analysis.

Physical activity (PA) is beneficial for stroke prevention; in particular, moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). However, few studies have investigated its relationship with recurrent ischemi...

The effect of asymmetric movement support on muscle activity during Lokomat guided gait in able-bodied individuals.

To accommodate training for unilaterally affected patients (e.g. stroke), the Lokomat (a popular robotic exoskeleton-based gait trainer) provides the possibility to set the amount of movement guidance...

Physical fitness interventions for nonambulatory stroke survivors: A mixed-methods systematic review and meta-analysis.

Physical fitness training after stroke is recommended in guidelines across the world, but evidence pertains mainly to ambulatory stroke survivors. Nonambulatory stroke survivors (FAC score ≤2) are a...

The effect of a single textured insole in gait rehabilitation of individuals with stroke.

Rehabilitation interventions designed to restore gait symmetry in individuals with stroke are not always effective. The goal was to evaluate the long-term effect of using a single textured insole in g...
