OBJECTIVE The relation was investigated between hemiparetic arm function improvement and brain cortical perfusion (BCP) change during voluntary muscle contraction (VOL), EMG-controlled FES (EMG-FES) and simple electrical muscle stimulation (ES) before and after EMG-FES therapy in chronic stroke patients. METHODS Sixteen chronic stroke patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare bone mineral densities (BMDs) of the affected and unaffected limbs in stroke patients at multiple sites; to study longitudinal changes during a 3-month rehabilitation program; and to relate BMDs to demographic, impairment, and disability variables. DESIGN Descriptive study. SETTING Tertiary rehabilitation center. PATIENTS One(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effects of daily power-assisted functional electrical stimulation (FES) home program therapy in chronic stroke. METHODS A total of 20 consecutively enrolled stroke patients with spastic upper-extremity impairments > 1 year after stroke were recruited for this non-blinded randomized controlled trial. Subjects were assigned to control(More)
We previously reported reliability and validity of our newly developed comorbidity scale (CS) for stroke outcome research based on a retrospective sample. The objectives of this study were to cross-validate the comorbidity scale in a new prospective sample and to investigate longitudinal changes of the comorbidity scale during hospitalization. In a(More)
This study was designed to examine the scale quality of our newly developed short behavior scale and to identify its role in predicting the functional outcome of stroke patients. The short behavior scale consists of six items that assess cognitive function related to the daily behavioral status of a patient in activities of daily living and exercise. It can(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a stress testing protocol for hemiplegic persons using graded bridging activity at the rates of 3 to 24 repetitions per minute. DESIGN Paired comparisons of exercise parameters and admission and discharge data between hemiplegic and control groups. SETTING Inpatient rehabilitation program of a tertiary rehabilitation center in(More)
