OBJECTIVE To develop a prognostic model to predict mobility outcome one year post-stroke. DESIGN Prospective cohort study in patients with a first-ever stroke admitted for inpatient rehabilitation. PATIENTS A total of 217 patients with stroke (mean age 58 years) following inpatient rehabilitation in 4 rehabilitation centres across the Netherlands. (More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to identify clinical determinants able to predict which individuals are susceptible to deterioration of mobility from 1 to 3 years after stroke. METHODS Prospective cohort study of stroke patients consecutively admitted for inpatient rehabilitation. A total of 205 relatively young, first-ever stroke(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To study the longitudinal relationship of functional change in walking ability and change in time-dependent covariates and to develop a multivariate regression model to predict longitudinal change of walking ability. METHODS A total of 101 acute stroke patients with first-ever ischemic middle cerebral artery strokes was used as the(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the longitudinal association of poststroke fatigue with activities of daily living (ADL), instrumental ADL (IADL) and perceived health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and to establish whether this relationship is confounded by other determinants. METHODS A prospective cohort study of stroke patients consecutively admitted for(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the effect of task oriented circuit training compared with usual physiotherapy in terms of self reported walking competency for patients with stroke discharged from a rehabilitation centre to their own home. DESIGN Randomised controlled trial with follow-up to 24 weeks. SETTING Multicentre trial in nine outpatient rehabilitation(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the strength of the association between gait speed and community ambulation and whether this association is significantly distorted by other variables. DESIGN Cross-sectional study conducted 3 years after stroke. SUBJECTS A total of 102 patients after first-ever stroke following inpatient rehabilitation who are now living in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is increasing interest in the potential benefits of circuit class training after stroke, but its effectiveness is uncertain. Our aim was to systematically review randomized, controlled trials of task-oriented circuit class training on gait and gait-related activities in patients with stroke. METHODS A computer-aided literature(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the incidence and characteristics of injuries between Dutch amateur and professional male soccer players during one entire competition season. DESIGN A prospective two-cohort design. METHODS During the 2009-2010 season, 456 Dutch male amateur soccer players and 217 professional players were prospectively followed. Information on(More)
One prominent deficit resulting from stroke is visuo-spatial neglect, which has been associated with slower and more attenuated recovery patterns of sensory-motor impairment as well as limitations in activities of daily living (ADL). The aim of the current study was to further specify the relationship between neglect and recovery of different domains of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this research was to describe the clinical course of children's functioning (depression, behavioral problems, and health status) during the first year after parental stroke and to determine which patient-, spouse-, or child-related factors at the start of inpatient rehabilitation can predict children's functioning after(More)
