After a stroke, many people develop contracture of the muscles in their affected wrist and hand which leads to a permanently clenched, painful hand. A contracture is often treated by therapists who use hand splinting to prevent it occurring or slow down its progression. Despite their wide use, there has not been research completed to investigate whether or not splinting prevents contracture in people following stroke. In fact, this project will be the first of its kind in the w...
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the use of a robotic hand therapy device in the home environment. We hypothesize that the therapy group will improve hand function more than a customary and usual care group.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the functional benefits of a myoelectric Elbow-Wrist-Hand orthosis for persons with upper limb paralysis caused by a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a nighttime positioning hand splint in patients with RA in terms of pain, grip and pinch strength, upper limb function, quality of life, and patient satisfaction. The hypothesis is that the stabilization of hand during nighttime could decrease pain and consequently improve quality of life.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Indego exoskeleton as a gait training tool for individuals with hemiplegia due to Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA).
The purpose is to determine the relationship between anxiety and cognitive performances in patients with acute and chronic phases of cerebrovascular accident (CVA). Data from neuropsychological assessment concerning cognitive processes (working and episodic memory) sensitive to different dimensions of anxiety will be analyzed. The secondary purpose is to evaluate how some neurological (hemispherical lateralization of lesions), psychological (depression) and demographic (qualit...
Forty participants were enrolled in a randomized, controlled clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of a functional thumb splint for trapeziometacarpal OA in the dominant hand.
A pilot study for a prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted to compare subjects using the CCO (Group-A) with those using the ER-splint (Group-B) before and after the intervention. The primary outcome was difference in the level of pain based on the visual analogue scale (VAS) between before and after intervention in each group during forceful and resting respiration. VAS : Visual analogue scale CCO : Chrisofix® Chest Orthosis
To evaluate the effectiveness of the stabilizing splint versus the pivot splint as jaw exercise together with stabilizing splints for treatment of TMJ anterior disc displacement without reduction
Randomized trial of patients with cerebrovascular accident (CVA) receiving traditional and body weight supported (BWS) gait training. Participants are enrolled and randomized upon entry into acute care and gait is evaluated within 48 hours of discharge from the rehabilitation hospital. Gait analysis is used to determine which of the two groups achieved gait parameters most similar to the normal gait of an age-matched population.
The purpose of this study is to compare how well providing 2 different amounts of therapy, electrical stimulation to the arm/hand muscles plus bilateral practice using the arms/hands, for the weaker arm and hand after stroke facilitates arm and hand function.
To evaluate the effectiveness of Michigan-type occlusal splint and anterior repositioning splint in patients with temporomandibular joint anterior disc displacement with reduction.
The first purpose of this study is to determine how often people should practice motor skills to best improve the ability to use the affected arm and hand after stroke. The second purpose is to determine whether it is better to practice a lot of repetitions of a few tasks or a few repetitions of many tasks during motor rehabilitation for the arm and hand after stroke.
The purpose of this study is to develop an upper extremity robotic training system for use by people with stroke to practice arm and hand movement in the clinic.
Open-label clinical study where all new patients presenting with cerebrovascular accidents and consenting to treatment are given intravenously a new combination of medications. Patients are evaluated neurologically with NIHSS scores before treatment administration and at 1 month after the first treatment. Further evaluations at 6 months after treatment by NIHSS and Barthel scores are ongoing
In this randomized controlled trial the investigators want to investigate whether early versus late mobilisation after surgery in the first carpometacarpal joint (CMC1) leads to a faster recovery of hand function. The investigators also want to explore patients' satisfaction with the two different treatment regimes. The participants in the control group will receive the standard treatment at Diakonhjemmet hospital: immobilisation of the thumb in a splint for six weeks. The part...
TITLE: Immediate effect of Johnstone's Pressure Splint added to Stretching on the spasticity of elbow flexors and wrist in Cerebrovascular Disease (CVD). INTRODUCTION: In the rehabilitation of the upper limb post-CVD to employed exercise modalities such as stretching (S) to control spasticity, improve mobility and functionality. Also it is used the Johnstone´s Pressure Splint (JPS), which exerts circumferential pressure and contribute to spastic pattern inhibition, sensory re...
This is an evaluation of the functionality and added value of cork splint materials instead of a plaster splint for children (3-11 years old).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether intensive, focused training of the affected upper extremity after stroke results in long-term functional gains in moderately-to-severely paralyzed patients, more than 6 months after their vascular accident. During the course of therapy, user's attempts to move and complete exercises are assisted by neuromuscular electrical stimulation.
The purpose of this randomized clinical trial was to examine the efficacy of a splinting (fabricated versus off-the-shelf splint)and exercise (nerve and tendon gliding versus no exercise) interventions to alter the clinical course of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). We hypothesized that the fabricated splint with nerve and tendon gliding exercises condition would yield the best functional outcomes at 4 and 8 weeks posttesting.
The complexity of sensorimotor control required for hand function as well as the wide range of recovery of manipulative abilities makes rehabilitation of the hand most challenging. The investigators past work has shown that training in a virtual environment (VE) using repetitive, adaptive algorithms has the potential to be an effective rehabilitation medium to facilitate motor recovery of hand function. These findings are in accordance with current neuroscience literature in an...
This randomized clinical trial will compare the standard treatment (occlusal splint) and botox for the treatment of face muscular pain in adults. Fifty patients will be invited and selected, and allocated to the experimental group, according to the randomization sequence previously performed. For the splint group, a rigid splint will be worn by the patient every night. For the botox group, 60u of botox will be injected in 3 regions of the masseter muscle. Patients will be asses...
This study evaluates the effects of mirror therapy on upper-limb motor impairment in stroke patients early after their cerebrovascular accident. In recent years mirror therapy has been used in stroke rehabilitation, both to ease motor (e.g., upper limb impairment) and cognitive (e.g., spatial neglect) recovery. To note, mirror therapy is a simple and inexpensive treatment that patients can practice independently and with no significant side effects. However, a recent review con...
Using a proprietary insurance health claims database, Eli Lilly and Company has contracted with an external party to conduct a retrospective cohort study of health claims for the time period from 1 January 2003 through 31 December 2006 (with follow-up of patients through 30 June 2007). This study will evaluate the potential association between atomoxetine and cerebrovascular events. In this study, the incidence of selected cerebrovascular outcomes as represented in health cla...
The study will compare the effectiveness of a prefabricated wrist splint with thermoplast reinforcements versus a short arm cast in skeletally immature children. The hypothesis is that the commercially available wrist splint is at least as effective as traditional casting with respect to recovery of physical function.
