Activity Levels and Rehabilitation Outcomes of Patients Post-stroke

Not yet recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Patients admitted to the in-patient rehabilitation center with a diagnosis of stroke will be recruited into the study. The participants will wear two activity monitors (one commercial grade and one research grade) for the duration of their rehab stay. Data from the monitors will be correlated with rehab outcomes, therapy units billed, and length of stay.

Conditions

Interventions

  • Activity monitors Other
    Intervention Desc: activity monitors are worn on the wrist, much like a watch. Data from the activity monitors will be downloaded once a week and at discharge. Normal hospital and therapy activities will not be altered.

Trial Population

This study will include only people with a diagnosis of stroke who have been admitted to the in-patient rehabilitation facility "Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging & Rehabilitation" in Naples, FL. The side of the stroke, the type of the stroke, or a history of prior stroke are not considerations. The study is intended to be very clinically focused to better understand the activity level of the population seen at the facility. This study is purposely not controlling the population to a very narrow presentation so that the results will speak directly to the facility and their outcomes

Outcomes

Type Measure Time Frame Safety Issue
Primary Physical Activity Level from the date of recruitment to the date of discharge or up to 45 days whichever comes first
Secondary therapy units billed from the date of recruitment to the date of discharge or up to 45 days whichever comes first
