Stroke clinical trials at UC Irvine
3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The aim of the current protocol is to study 40 patients, each for 12 weeks, to address hypotheses related to the ability of a telerehabilitation system to (a) improve motor status and disability, (b) collect various forms of patient data from the home, (c) improve risk factor knowledge and control, and (d) assess patient compliance with home-based telerehabilitation. Patients who have returned to their home after stroke will be provided with a telehealth system and be asked to use it 6 days/week for 12 weeks, during which time subjects will use this system for daily rehabilitation therapy, assessments, and education--all on one platform.
open to eligible people ages 18-80
The goal of this study is to determine the effectiveness of interactive feedback from a wearable device that senses hand function, the Manumeter, in improving upper extremity function in a pilot, randomized controlled trial with chronic stroke patients
Sorry, not yet accepting patients
The investigators will investigate the efficacy of a newly developed functional exercise device (FitMi Plus) for people in the chronic stage after a stroke compared to the FitMi Basic (i.e. without functional exercises). FitMi Plus combines objects commonly used during activities of daily living with sensors that can track and record the patient's direction and degree of movement as they perform specific functional tasks described on a computer.
