Impact of Non-invasive Brain Stimulation on Motor Recuperation

Recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) will be used in chronic stroke patients to improve a variety of functions with superior or inferior limb.

Detailed Description

tDCS will be used in chronic stroke patients to improve a variety of functions such as motor functions with superior or inferior limb.
tDCS will be applied in a placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomised fashion. Behavioural data will be collected before and after tDCS, as well as brain functional imaging data.

Conditions

Interventions

  • TDCS (ELDITH) Device
    Intervention Desc: tdcs (ELDITH, Neuroconn, Ilmenau, Germany) transcranial direct current stimulation
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Real stimulation
    Description: real tDCS
    ARM 2: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Sham
    Description: sham tDCS

Trial Design

  • Allocation: Randomized
  • Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
  • Purpose: Treatment
  • Endpoint: Efficacy Study

Outcomes

Type Measure Time Frame Safety Issue
Primary change in motor function before/after tDCS Baseline (>6 months after stroke), immediately after intervention (30min of tDCS), 10-20-30-40-50-60 min after intervention; long-term after intervention : 1-2-3-4 weeks No
