Towards a better model of upper limb recovery after a stroke (research)

University of Technology Sydney, cnr Moore Park Road and Driver Avenue, Moore Park, NSW, 2021

The study aims to understand how motor pathways that originate in your brain and control muscles in your arms may change over time after a stroke. This research will enhance our understanding of stroke recovery to help us develop appropriate physical therapy interventions for improving outcomes and quality of life after a stroke.

Participants will need to attend 1–2 x 2 hr long sessions at the Clinical Neurostimulation Laboratory at UTS Moore Park Campus. Participants must complete a screening questionnaire to ensure they are able to undergo non-invasive brain stimulation and participate in the study.

During these sessions you will be asked to complete questionnaires about your daily living activities, perform clinical assessments of your arm function, and undergo non-invasive brain stimulation (termed transcranial magnetic stimulation).

Assistance with travel costs to attend the non-invasive brain stimulation session(s) can be provided, and parking is also available by request. You will also be invited to attend up to 5 x 45 min supervised training sessions using state-of-the-art robotic game-based rehabilitation equipment from Tyromotion.
