Frequently Asked Questions

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Who fits the criteria for involvement in this experiment?

"This medical study is enrolling a dozen individuals aged 18 to 80 who have suffered from stroke. To be eligible, candidates must also fulfil the following prerequisites: advanced in age (18+), gone through post-stroke rehabilitation treatment, present motor recovery on their upper limb, and only experienced one supratentorial stroke episode."

Answered by AI

How many subjects are involved in this research?

"Affirmative. Information obtained from clinicaltrials.gov indicates that this medical trial is still enlisting patients; it was first launched on June 27th 2022 and has since been updated to November 2nd of the same year. There are 12 spots open at a single location for recruitment."

Answered by AI

Are participants still being accepted into this trial?

"According to clinicaltrials.gov, this medical trial is actively seeking participants. It was first announced on June 27th 2022 and the listing has been updated as recently as November 2nd 2022."

Answered by AI

What are the foremost goals of this medical experiment?

"This trial seeks to assess the recruitment rate over a 7 month period, as well as improvement in motor function (as measured by the Fugl-Meyer Stroke Assessment Scale), grip strength (via JAMAR dynamometer tests) and functional performance of the affected upper limb (by Wolf Motor Function Test). A score of 66 on the Fugl-Meyer scale is indicative of full motor recovery."

Answered by AI

Does this research endeavor accept individuals who are over four decades of age?

"The age range of individuals that meet the eligibility criteria for this study is 18 to 80. Notably, there are 37 trials available for those below eighteen and 1007 searching for participants over sixty-five."
