BACKGROUND: Recovery in function after stroke involves neuroplasticity and adaptation to impairments. Few studies have examined differences in late functional improvement beyond 3 months among stroke subtypes, although interventions for late restorative therapies are often studied in lacunar stroke. Therefore, we compared rates of functional improvement beyond 3 months in patients with lacunar versus non-lacunar strokes. METHODS: In a prospective, population-based cohort of 3-month ischaemic stroke survivors (Oxford Vascular Study; 2002-2014), we examined changes in functional status (modified Rankin Scale (mRS), Rivermead Mobility Index (RMI), Barthel Index (BI)) in patients with lacunar versus non-lacunar strokes from 3 to 60 months poststroke, stratifying by age...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the physical,psychological and social functioning of stroke patients with home-based rehabilitation. METHODS: Convenient sampling strategy was adopted to select 234 stroke patients discharged from a tertiary hospital rehabilitation center. The patients were assessed using Barthel index (BI),instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) scale,modified rivermead mobility index (mRMI),self-perceived burden scale (SPBS),self-rating depression scale,and Zarit caregiver burden interview (ZBI) during their outpatient visits,household visits,or telephone interviews...

The problem-oriented approach in the rehabilitation of patients with spasticity requires careful assessment of the situation in the concept of The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF): impairment of the structure, functions and limitation of activity in specific environmental factors. Standardized tools in the assessment of muscle tone allow to get objective data about motor function. The use of the Modified Ashworth scale (MAS) and the Tardieu Scale are discussed. The standardized assessment of independent mobility is an important issue in outcome measuring...

BACKGROUND: Restoration of walking function is a primary concern of neurorehabilitation with respect to the aspired social and vocational reintegration. To date, the best practice for improving gait early after stroke is still object of debate. On one hand, repetitive task-specific approaches with higher intensities of walking have been observed to result in greater improvements of gait after stroke. Conversely there is some evidence that conventional gait training would be more effective for facilitating walking ability after stroke...

INTRODUCTION: The Rehabilitation Training (ReTrain) intervention aims to improve functional mobility, adherence to poststroke exercise guidelines and quality of life for people after stroke. A definitive randomised controlled trial (RCT) is required to assess the clinical and cost-effectiveness of ReTrain, which is based on Action for Rehabilitation from Neurological Injury (ARNI). The purpose of this pilot study is to assess the feasibility of such a definitive trial and inform its design...

[Purpose] This study aimed to examine the inter- and intra-rater reliability and validity of the modified functional ambulation category (mFAC) scale. [Subjects and Methods] The participants were 66 stroke patients with hemiparalysis. The inter- and intra-rater validity of the mFAC was calculated using the Spearman correlation coefficient. A score comparison of the stable or maximum gait speed with regard to mFAC and modified Rivermead Mobility Index (mRMI) performances was performed as a univariate linear regression analysis to determine how the Kruskal-Wallis test affects the mRMI and stable/maximum gait speed with regard to mFAC...

BACKGROUND: Robotic training is commonly used to assist walking training in patients affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) with non-conclusive results. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) with that of conventional walking training (CWT) on gait competencies, global ability, fatigue and spasticity in a group of severely affected patients with MS. METHODS: A pilot, single-blind randomized controlled trial was conducted in 43 severe (Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score of 6-7...

The Timed 25 Foot Walk (T25FW), a test of maximum walking speed on a short distance, is commonly used to monitor ambulation status and to assess treatment outcomes in multiple sclerosis (MS). The main aim of this study was to determine how walking speed on the T25FW correlates with other clinician-reported and patient-reported measures in an outpatient MS rehabilitation clinic. We analyzed cross-sectional data systematically collected during a physiatry evaluation for the management of spasticity and walking limitations...

BACKGROUND: Various exercise protocols have been recommended for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). We investigated the effects of uphill and downhill walking exercise on mobility, functional activities, and muscle strength in MS patients. METHODS: Thirty-four MS patients were randomly allocated to either the downhill or uphill treadmill walking group for 12 sessions (3 times/wk) of 30 minutes' walking on a 10% negative slope (n = 17) or a 10% positive slope (n = 17), respectively...

OBJECTIVES: Recovery of independent ambulation after stroke is a major goal. However, which rehabilitation regimen best benefits each individual is unknown and decisions are currently made on a subjective basis. Predictors of response to specific therapies would guide the type of therapy most appropriate for each patient. Although lesion topography is a strong predictor of upper limb response, walking involves more distributed functions. Earlier studies that assessed the cortico-spinal tract (CST) were negative, suggesting other structures may be important...

INTRODUCTION: Patients who have suffered from stroke become disabled and have specific problems due to the physical and mental disability that requires the implementation of rehabilitation and the creation of conditions for independent living, economic and social reintegration. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional recovery of patients after ischemic stroke, during the subacute phase of medical rehabilitation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was organized as a prospective study, which included 74 patients (44 men, 30 women) treated after stroke at the Department of Medical Rehabilitation, Clinical Center of Vojvodina during 2013...
