The description was updated.
Objectives were to assess the efficacy of home-based stroke rehabilitation compared to standard care in stroke patients using an interventional, randomised, safety/efficacy open-label trial and parallel assignment. The setting was single-center, stroke unit at the University Hospital of Copenhagen, Gentofte, although patients were recruited through a collaboration of several municipalities. Participants were eligible patients with a clinical diagnosis of stroke and focal neurological deficits hospitalised in a stroke unit for more than three days and in need of rehabilitation. Interventions patients were randomised to home-based rehabilitation during hospitalization and for up to 4 weeks after discharge to replace part of usual treatment and rehabilitation services. Control patients received treatment and rehabilitation following usual guidelines for the treatment of stroke patients. Main outcome measures 90 days post-stroke, modified Rankin Scale, and motor rehabilitation, cognitive abilities, quality of life and treatment-associated economy as secondary outcomes.
A location was updated in Hellerup.
The overall status was removed for University hospital of Gentofte.
