Stratification of Stroke Rehabilitation: 5-year Profiles of Functional Outcomes

Completed

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Objective: To make use of admission Modified Functional Ambulation Category (MFAC) as a stratification tool to reveal profiles of functional outcomes of patients with stroke in inpatient rehabilitation.
Design: This was a retrospective, descriptive study of the demographic, functional outcomes of patients with stroke in an inpatient rehabilitation centre. A total of 2,722 patients completed a stroke rehabilitation program from 2011 to 2015 were recruited.

Detailed Description

Objective: To make use of admission Modified Functional Ambulation Category (MFAC) as a stratification tool to reveal profiles of functional outcomes of patients with stroke in inpatient rehabilitation.
Design: This was a retrospective, descriptive study of the demographic, functional outcomes of patients with stroke in an inpatient rehabilitation centre. A total of 2,722 patients completed a stroke rehabilitation program from 2011 to 2015 were recruited. The patients were divided into seven groups according to their admission Modified Functional Ambulation Category (MFAC). The between-group difference in length of stay (LOS), functional outcomes at admission and discharge including Modified Rivermead Mobility Index (MRMI) and Modified Barthel Index (MBI) as well as MRMI gain, MRMI efficiency, MBI gain and MBI efficiency were analyzed.

Conditions

Trial Population

Patients with principal diagnosis of cerebrovascular accident, stroke, or hemiplegia.

Outcomes

Type Measure Time Frame Safety Issue
Primary Change in Modified Rivermead Mobility Index (MRMI) baseline and 1 month
Secondary Change in Modified Barthel Index (MBI) Gain baseline and 1 month
