The effect of frequency of feedback on overground temporal gait asymmetry post stroke
This study investigated the effects of augmented feedback during overground gait training, on TGA.METHODS: Eighteen people with chronic stroke were randomized to receive one of two feedback displays (A or B) and one of three feedback frequencies; no feedback (0%), after alternate walking trials (50%) or after every trial (100%). Display A depicted the TGA ratio as a vertical line along a horizontal axis with perfect symmetry in the middle. Display B depicted single limb stance duration of each leg as a bar graph. Participants completed 25 repetitions of 30 second trials with their assigned feedback (acquisition). Participa...

A scoping review of design requirements for a home-based upper limb rehabilitation robot for stroke
CONCLUSION: This is the first research to summarize the design requirements for home-based upper limb rehabilitation robots for stroke survivors. The need for a safe, comfortable, easy to use device which can be individualized and promote specific movements and tasks emerged. The result of this paper captures the design requirements that can be used in future for the development of a design specification. It provides designers and researchers guidance about the real-world needs for home-based upper limb rehabilitation robots for stroke.PMID:34281494 | DOI:10.1080/10749357.2021.1943797 (Source: Topics in Stroke Rehabilitation)

Quantified clinical measures linked to ambulation speed in hemiparesis
Conclusions: In chronic hemiparesis, ambulation speed correlates with coefficients of shortening and of weakness in lower limb extensors, but not with their spasticity level. This may encourage therapists to focus treatment primarily on muscle shortening by stretching programs and on impaired descending command by active training.PMID:34229567 | DOI:10.1080/10749357.2021.1943799 (Source: Topics in Stroke Rehabilitation)

Relationship between longitudinal changes in skeletal muscle characteristics over time and functional recovery during intensive rehabilitation of patients with subacute stroke
CONCLUSIONS: The present study revealed that knee extension muscle strength on the non-paretic side and quadriceps and tibialis anterior thickness on the paretic side significantly improved over time and that changes in the paretic side quadriceps thickness were associated with the recovery of balance ability.PMID:34180362 | DOI:10.1080/10749357.2021.1940724 (Source: Topics in Stroke Rehabilitation)

Perspectives on rehabilitation for Aboriginal people with stroke: a qualitative study
Conclusions. Aboriginal people report making positive lifestyle changes, but experience significant unmet rehabilitation needs. Addressing issues of communication, advocacy and flexible delivery should improve some of the shortfalls in service provision, particularly in regional and remote areas.PMID:34180366 | DOI:10.1080/10749357.2021.1911771 (Source: Topics in Stroke Rehabilitation)

Adherence to home exercises and rehabilitation (ADHERE) after stroke in low-to-middle-income countries: A randomized controlled trial
Top Stroke Rehabil. 2021 Jun 28:1-11. doi: 10.1080/10749357.2021.1940800. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBackground: Adherence to prescribed exercises is essential for home-based programs to be effective, but evidence for strategies to enhance exercise adherence in people with stroke is lacking.Objectives: To determine the effect of adherence strategies on the proportion of people with stroke who adhere to prescribed home-based exercises and their level of adherence at 6 and 12 weeks of intervention. Our secondary objective was to determine the effect of the combined intervention on mobility and quality of life post-stroke....

The minimal clinically important difference in Berg Balance Scale scores among patients with early subacute stroke: a multicenter, retrospective, observational study
Top Stroke Rehabil. 2021 Jun 25:1-7. doi: 10.1080/10749357.2021.1943800. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBackground: Balance dysfunction is common in stroke patients. The Berg Balance Scale (BBS) is useful for evaluating the balance function of stroke patients, and it can estimate the minimal clinically important difference (MCID) in balance. BBS scores differ among stroke patients depending on whether they require walking assistance. The MCID should thus be estimated separately for patients who require assistance and those who do not.Objectives: To estimate the MCID of individuals who have had an early subacute stroke and r...

Postural control during quiet standing and voluntary stepping response tasks in individuals post-stroke: a case-control study
Conclusions: Greater postural sway during QS, smaller anteroposterior COM displacement before losing balance and altered voluntary recovering steps during VSR could place IPS at more risk of falling when they face a postural challenge in the community. These novel results will improve the current knowledge base and should be considered in IPS rehabilitation.PMID:34170215 | DOI:10.1080/10749357.2021.1943803 (Source: Topics in Stroke Rehabilitation)
