What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

61. Dose-response relationship of robot-assisted stroke motor rehabilitation: the impact of initial motor status Full Text available with Trip Pro

Dose-response relationship of robot-assisted stroke motor rehabilitation: the impact of initial motor status The increasing availability of robot-assisted therapy (RT), which provides quantifiable, reproducible, interactive, and intensive practice, holds promise for stroke rehabilitation, but data on its dose-response relation are scanty. This study used 2 different intensities of RT to examine the treatment effects of RT and the effect on outcomes of the severity of initial motor (...) those with severe or mild deficits after the higher-intensity RT.This study demonstrated the higher treatment intensity provided by RT was associated with better motor outcome for patients with stroke, which may shape further stroke rehabilitation.

62. Fall risk six weeks from onset of stroke and the ability of the Prediction of Falls in Rehabilitation Settings Tool and motor function to predict falls (Abstract)

Fall risk six weeks from onset of stroke and the ability of the Prediction of Falls in Rehabilitation Settings Tool and motor function to predict falls To investigate whether the Prediction of Falls in Rehabilitation Settings Tool (Predict FIRST) and motor function could be used to identify people at risk of falling during the first six weeks after stroke, and to compare the risk of falling according to Predict FIRST with real falls frequency.A longitudinal, prospective study.Sixty-eight people (...) newly diagnosed with stroke admitted to an acute stroke unit.The participants underwent an assessment of motor ability (Modified Motor Assessment Scale according to Uppsala University Hospital version 99 (M-MAS UAS-99)) and falls risk (Predict FIRST) on the first to fourth day at the acute stroke unit. Falls occurring in the acute stroke unit were recorded and falls occurring after discharge were reported by telephone follow-up. The prediction of falls was analysed with binary logistic

64. Influence of continuous positive airway pressure on outcomes of rehabilitation in stroke patients with obstructive sleep apnea Full Text available with Trip Pro

Influence of continuous positive airway pressure on outcomes of rehabilitation in stroke patients with obstructive sleep apnea In stroke patients, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with poorer functional outcomes than in those without OSA. We hypothesized that treatment of OSA by continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in stroke patients would enhance motor, functional, and neurocognitive recovery.This was a randomized, open label, parallel group trial with blind assessment (...) of outcomes performed in stroke patients with OSA in a stroke rehabilitation unit. Patients were assigned to standard rehabilitation alone (control group) or to CPAP (CPAP group). The primary outcomes were the Canadian Neurological scale, the 6-minute walk test distance, sustained attention response test, and the digit or spatial span-backward. Secondary outcomes included Epworth Sleepiness scale, Stanford Sleepiness scale, Functional Independence measure, Chedoke McMaster Stroke assessment

November 2011 Presented to the Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee in May 27, 2011 OHTAC Recommendation: Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy for Rehabilitation of Arm Dysfunction after Stroke in Adults. 2 Issue Background A stroke is a sudden loss of brain function caused (...) by the interruption of blood flow to the brain (ischemic stroke) or the rupture of blood vessels in the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). Stroke is the leading cause of adult neurological disability in Canada with 1% of the population living with its effects, which may include difficulty with or the inability to move, see, remember, speak, reason, read and/or write. Up to 85% of persons who experience a complete stroke may have arm dysfunction, which will interfere with their ability to live independently

72. Rehabilitation of stroke patients using virtual reality games

for the rehabilitation of extremity motor functioning in patients who have experienced a stroke. BACKGROUND A stroke occurs when an artery supplying blood to a part of the brain suddenly bleeds (haemorrhagic stroke) or becomes blocked (ischaemic stroke) causing a loss of function of part of the brain. Risk factors for stroke are the same as for any cardiovascular disease: obesity, lack of physical activity, high blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and smoking. Stroke mainly affects older people with the 2 (...) Rehabilitation of stroke patients using virtual reality games: June 2010 rates of stroke increasing markedly with age from about 65 years, with the median age of patients having a stroke in Australia being approximately 79 years (Senes 2006). Ischaemic strokes are more common (85%) than haemorrhagic strokes, however both may affect functions including movement of body parts, vision, swallowing, communication, and may result in death. Nearly all patients are disabled immediately following a stroke event
