Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on the Risk of Falls and Lower Limb Function for Acute Stroke


Phase 2/3 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has shown promising results in the modulation of cortical excitability and the promotion of neuronal plasticity after stroke. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of three different montages of tDCS (anodal, cathodal and bilateral) in reducing the risk of falls and recovery of lower limb function in acute stroke patients.
