Combining Non-Invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation and Robotic Training in Upper Limb-Impaired Chronic Stroke Patients


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Previous studies suggested that both robot-assisted rehabilitation and non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation can improve upper limb function in chronic stroke patients. Aim of present study is to explore whether the combination of these two approaches might enhance their positive effects on motor recovery. Safety and efficacy of this combination will be assessed within a proof-of-principle, double-blinded,...
