This trial is evaluating whether High Intensity Interval Training will improve 2 primary outcomes and 8 secondary outcomes in patients with Stroke. Measurement will happen over the course of 0 to 24 weeks.
This trial requires 104 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. High Intensity Interval Training is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Stroke affects between 1 and 4 million Americans each year and is one of the leading causes of disability or death in the United States. It causes more than a half million injuries or long-term disability each year or a cost of between $16 billion and $22 billion to treat. The incidence of stroke is rising, with an average annual rate of 2.3% for the period 1975–95. Men and women equally need urgent treatment. People over 55 are at risk of having a stroke and they have a higher mortality. Strokes are a risk factor for heart disease and death, even after controlling for risk factors in men and women." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Stroke is due to stroke mechanisms involving both vessel wall disruption and embolism. Blood vessel disease is the dominant mechanism in a majority of individuals. Atherosclerosis, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, and diabetes are all independent risk factors for stroke." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Almost 50 % of patients with an ischemic stroke have symptoms that persist after an average of 30 days, although in a majority of the cases it disappears. In the light of those data and the absence of any evidence that a cure can be achieved, the use of ischemia as a means to detect recurrent stroke and evaluate therapies against future strokes is not recommended." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"As of 2016, there were no national guidelines for emergency healthcare providers to make the diagnosis of mild or moderate cases of stroke. Stroke has not been routinely considered when there is low-grade fever, and clinical indicators when looking for acute coronary syndromes, to assess the appropriateness of cardioembolic disease in people with stroke. The American Heart Association's 2015 guideline “AHA Heart Rhythm Society Lifelong and Transmittable Stroke Program: What Everyone Needs to Know” provides great information about clinical findings, diagnostic approaches, and treatment options for stroke." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The approximate number of new cases of stroke is 1.5 million per year. There is an annual risk of stroke of around 7%. These cases occur chiefly in the elderly.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Treatment for stroke is highly reliant on the type and severity of the stroke, as well as specific medical and occupational therapy techniques. Treatment typically starts with thrombolysis, however, there is no standard for treatment as some patients present without the signs and symptoms of stroke. Stroke may also be treated through the use of angioplasty and stents, embolisation, or decompression of the brain.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In a recent study, findings is the first to evaluate high intensity interval training using quality of life measures. Findings suggest that participants in the intervention group reported a greater improvement in quality of life compared to the control group at post intervention and follow up periods. High intensity interval training is suggested for people with stroke to enhance the quality live of these individuals." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"These side effects are very common and should be taken into consideration when choosing HIIT training. They include heat exhaustion, musculoskeletal discomfort, lack of sleep, and gastrointestinal discomfort." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"HIIT is similar to other forms of ET when it comes to training volume overload and improved VO2 peak. HIIT is not comparable to ET with regards to increased T2 and increased power. Additionally, HIIT is not superior to ET when it comes to VO2 peak improvements." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Based on recent literature and our experience, we prefer the term 'interval training' for our work because we believe that 'high-intensity interval training' is ambiguous and could be misinterpreted." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The average age at onset of stroke is 70 years, with the oldest being aged 83. The average age at death is 74. The average age of death in women is three years earlier than in men." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"HIIT is a dynamic training modality that allows a gradual increase in volume over time without negatively impacting muscle function and body composition. HIIT can be applied in a variety of populations with many different training programs. A HIIT protocol should include intense, short, high-volume exercise sessions interspersed with at least 60 seconds of rest or low intensity exercise." - Anonymous Online Contributor
