Clinical non-superiority of technology-assisted gait training with body weight support in patients with subacute stroke: A meta-analysis
Conclusions. TAGT with BWS was not superior to COT in improving post-stroke recovery in patients with subacute stroke. Strategies other than simply increasing the repetitions by external assistance may be considered to augment the treatment effects of TAGT.

Validity of wearable actimeter computation of total energy expenditure during walking in post-stroke individuals
ConclusionsThis new method based on the energy cost and distance estimated by wearable devices provided better energy expenditure estimates for the pedometer than did the manufacturer's algorithm. The validity of this method depended on the accuracy of the sensor to measure the distance walked by an individual after stroke.

Botuloscope: 1-year follow-up of upper limb post-stroke spasticity treated with botulinum toxin
ConclusionThis is the first long-term follow-up of BoNT-A treatment for upper limb spasticity involving a large cohort independent of industry. Quality of life was improved by treating upper limb spasticity with BoNT-A, even at 5 years post-stroke. Personalizing objectives of the treatment amplified its efficacy. BoNT-A was a powerful analgesic when pain was spasticity-related. Treating the spastic upper limb also improved balance and gait abilities.

Impact of visuospatial neglect post-stroke on daily activities, participation and informal caregiver burden: a systematic review
Conclusions and implications. VSN has a negative impact not only on patients’ independence but particularly on the performance of ADL. Despite the far fewer studies of VSN as compared with ADL, VSN also seems to hamper participation and increase caregiver burden, but further research is needed. Because of the large impact, VSN during rehabilitation should be systematically and carefully assessed. A considerable number of different instruments were used to diagnose VSN. Diagnosing VSN at more than one level (function [i.e., pen-and-paper test], activities, and participation) is strongly recommended. Consensus is needed on...

Effectiveness of upper-limb robotic-assisted therapy in the early rehabilitation phase after stroke: a single-blind, randomised, controlled trial
Conclusion. For the same duration of daily rehabilitation, RAT combined with conventional therapy during the early rehabilitation phase after stroke is more effective than conventional therapy alone to improve gross manual dexterity, upper-limb ability during functional tasks and patient social participation.

Inertial measurement unit compared to an optical motion capturing system in post-stroke individuals with foot-drop syndrome
Conclusions. IMU-based reconstruction algorithms were effective in measuring ankle dorsiflexion with small biases and good ICCs in adults with ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke presenting foot-drop. The precision obtained is sufficient to observe the fatigue influence on the dorsiflexion and therefore to use IMUs to adapt FES.

Transcranial direct current stimulation in post-stroke aphasia rehabilitation: a systematic review
ConclusionEvidence from published peer reviewed literature is effective for post stroke aphasia rehabilitation at the chronic stages. tDCS devices are easy to use, safe and inexpensive. They can be used in routine clinical practice by speech therapists for aphasia rehabilitation. However, further studies should investigate the effectiveness in the sub-acute post-stroke phase and determine the effect of the lesion for precisely identifying the targeted brain areas. We discuss crucial challenges for future studies.

Effectiveness of static stretching positioning on post-stroke upper-limb spasticity and mobility: systematic review with meta-analysis
Conclusion. This meta-analysis revealed very low-quality evidence that static stretching with positioning orthoses reduces wrist flexion spasticity after stroke as compared with no therapy. Furthermore, we found low-quality evidence that static stretching by simple positioning is not better than conventional physiotherapy for preventing loss of mobility in the shoulder and wrist. Considering the limited number of studies devoted to this issue in post-stroke survivors, further randomized clinical trials are still needed.Clinical Trial Registration. PROSPERO (CRD42017078784)

Association of spasticity and motor dysfunction in chronic stroke
ConclusionsThe prevalence of increased tone was higher in this study than in previous reports. Increased muscle tone in chronic stroke survivors with persistent motor dysfunction could be associated with impaired motor control and differential muscle strength of antagonistic muscles.

Patients’ outcome expectations and their fulfilment in multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation
ConclusionsIn half of the stroke patients in multidisciplinary rehabilitation, expectations were fulfilled or exceeded, most likely in patients with low expectations at admission and with improved health-related quality of life. More research into the role of health professionals regarding the measurement, shaping and management of outcome expectations is needed.

Effect of visuospatial neglect on spatial navigation and heading after stroke
ConclusionThe ipsilesional bias arising from VSN influences the modulation of heading in response to obstacles and, along with the adoption of the “riskier” strategies, contribute to the higher number colliders and poor goal-directed walking abilities in stroke survivors with VSN. Future research should focus on developing assessment and training tools for complex locomotor tasks such as obstacle avoidance in this population.

Changes in transcranial magnetic stimulation outcome measures in response to upper-limb physical training in stroke: A systematic review of randomized controlled trials
ConclusionsThe current evidence encourages the use of TMS outcome measures, especially MEP latency and map area to investigate plastic changes in the brain after upper-limb physical training post-stroke. However, more studies involving rigorous and standardized TMS procedures are needed to validate these observations.

Adding electrical stimulation during standard rehabilitation after stroke to improve motor function. A systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionElectrical sensory input can contribute to routine rehabilitation to improve early post-stroke lower-extremity impairment and late motor function, with no change in spasticity. Prolonged periods of sensory stimulation such as TENS combined with activity can have beneficial effects on impairment and function after stroke.

Onset, time course and prediction of spasticity after stroke or traumatic brain injury
ConclusionSigns of spasticity can often be noted within the first 4 weeks after brain injury and is more common in the upper than lower extremity. Impaired sensorimotor function is a predictor. These findings highlight the importance to follow up patients with increased risk of developing severe spasticity to be able to start adequate spasticity treatment and prevent the negative consequences of spasticity. Understanding spasticity onset and progression also provides a basis for the development of effective therapies.

Five-day course of paired associative stimulation fails to improve motor function in stroke patients
Conclusion We failed to induce a lasting effect with PAS in the present study. PAS does not seem to be the main method for post-stroke brain stimulation. Perhaps recruitment of patients could be more selective, possibly targeting those with a wide altered ipsilesional corticomotor pathway.

Postural and gait disorders in subacute stroke patients: Lateropulsion is the key
Discussion – conclusion Lateropulsion, which is a sign of biased representation of the vertical, is a primary cause of postural and gait disorders at the subacute phase after right hemisphere stroke, explaining almost 80% of balance and gait disabilities. A greater attention should be focused on the assessment and the rehabilitation of the post-stroke lateropulsion.

Concerning patients who left the program, initial mobility was 47% lower than for those who finished the study. As 4 patients in booklet group and 6 in serious game group have finished and regarding results, it may do not question the interest of this new medium. Obviously, further studies must be conduct.
