Stroke SA have been notified of the following research / programs

Study - The effects of the Foot Up Dorsiflexion Assist Orthosis

Research physiotherapists at Calvary Hospital and Flinders University are assessing whether a “Foot Up” orthosis can improve balance and walking performance in people who have had a stroke. If you have had a stroke more than 3 months ago you may be eligible. As a participant in this study, you will be asked to undergo balance and walking assessments with and without the “Foot Up” orthosis at Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital. The Foot Up is a lightweight ankle-foot orthosis that offers dynamic support for foot drop and ankle dorsiflexor weakness. By participating you will receive feedback about your balance and walking performance. If you are interested and would like further information, please contact Kate Beltran on (08) 81685700, [email protected] or [email protected]

InTENSE Trial - Optimising upper limb recovery after stroke

This study aims to determine whether intensive, evidence-based movement training after routine anti-spasticity intervention increases the amount of movement patients achieve in their arm and hand following stroke. This study has been approved by the Royal Adelaide Hospital Human Research Ethics Committee. 

For more information or to find out if you are eligible, please call Dr Annabel McNamara, Research Trial Coordinator on 0410 475 697. 

Study - Targeting Brain Stimulation Therapy In Stroke

This study aims to determine whether we can improve reliability of brain stimulation as a treatment for arm and hand function following stroke. This study has been approved by the University of South Australia Human Research Ethics Committee and is recruiting until 31 December 2018.

For more information or to find out if you are eligible, please contact Dr Brenton Hordacre, Research Coordinator on mobile: 0422056018, office: 83021286, or email: [email protected]
