Clinical Trial

Treatment for Stroke

Study Description

A Closed Loop Neural Activity Triggered Stroke Rehabilitation Device

The purpose of this research is to determine if two non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, muscle stimulation of the arm and neuro-stimulation through the tongue, can increase the extent of stroke recovery.

Methods

No pharmaceutical medication involved No pharmaceutical medication involved
Patients and healthy individuals accepted Patients and healthy individuals accepted

Device - Functional Electric Stimulation (FES)

FES uses low energy electrical pulses to artificially generate body movements in individuals with muscle paralysis. FES can be used to generate muscle contraction in otherwise paralyzed limbs to restore function.

Behavioral - Behavioral Assessments

These assessments will include measures of upper extremity motor assessments, standard stroke scales, and measures of activities of daily living.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

A functional magnetic resonance image will be collected.

EEG

EEG electrodes will be attached to the participant's scalp using a standard, commercially available electrode cap. Proper electrode placement is made according to the international 10-20 system, ensuring complete electrode coverage over sensorimotor cortex.

RecoveriX

RecoveriX is a brain driven rehabilitation system for stroke patients that pairs mental activities with motor functions.

Delay

10 week delay before intervention

Device - BCI-FES
