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.

A very early rehabilitation trial for stroke (AVERT): phase II safety and feasibility. Very early rehabilitation, with an emphasis on mobilization, may contribute to improved outcomes after stroke. We hypothesized that a very early rehabilitation protocol would be safe and feasible.We performed a randomized, controlled trial with blinded outcome assessment. Patients at <24 hours after stroke were recruited from 2 Melbourne metropolitan stroke units. Patients were randomly assigned to receive (...) "contamination" of standard care.Overall, 18% of patients screened were suitable for recruitment. Seventy-one patients were recruited and randomized, with 2 dropouts by 12 months. The majority experienced ischemic strokes (87%). The group mean+/-SD age was 74.7+/-12.5 years, and 58% (n=41) had a National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score >7. There was no significant difference in the number of deaths between groups (SC, 3 of 33; VEM, 8 of 38; P=0.20). Almost all deaths occurred in patients with severe

Cognitive rehabilitation for memory deficits following stroke. Memory problems are a common cognitive complaint following stroke. Memory rehabilitation programmes either attempt to retrain lost or poor memory functions, or teach patients strategies to cope with them.To determine the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation for memory problems following stroke.We searched the Cochrane Stroke Group Trials Register (last searched September 2006).

effects on the corticospinal or corticocortical pathways (Alisauskliene et al 2005). Brain activity is triggered or modulated by rTMS without the need for surgery or external electrodes. When utilised for stroke rehabilitation, rTMS is delivered to the brain by passing a strong brief electrical current through an insulated wired coil placed on the skull. The current generates a transient magnetic field in the brain inducing electric currents in the cortex that flow parallel to the coil. Figure 1 (...)
