TRANSPORT2: Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation for Post-Stroke Motor Recovery
Are You Recovering from a Stroke?
This research study is being done to find out if non-invasive brain stimulation combined with a rehabilitation therapy improves arm weakness that is caused by a stroke. All participants will receive 10 sessions of rehabilitation with the hand that was affected by the stroke while wearing a mitt on the unaffected hand during therapy and at home, a special type of rehabilitation known as constraint-induced movement therapy. Each session of therapy will last about two and a half hours. During the first part of each therapy session, participants will receive noninvasive brain stimulation while performing the exercises.
Participants will receive $75/visit. The entire study from start to finish will comprise of at least 15 visits.
- Are 18-80 years old
- Had a first-time ischemic stroke (caused by a blood clot) that occurred at least 1 month but not more than 6 months ago
- Experience residual arm or hand weakness
This study is being done at multiple locations and is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. If you are a stroke survivor, or know someone who has had a stroke, but do not qualify for this study, we ask that you still contact us. We offer other programs that you or someone you know may be eligible for.
