Feasibility and effects of novel light therapy in individuals with neurological conditions (stroke)

The study from Edith Cowan University aims to evaluate the feasibility and therapeutic effects of light therapy in combination with sleep health, compared to sleep health alone, in individuals experiencing post-stroke fatigue at least 3 months following a stroke.

Participants will be asked to undertake a screening assessment to determine study eligibility. Eligible participants will be randomly assigned to receive light therapy with sleep health guidance, or sleep health guidance alone, for a 4-week period.

Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires and wear an activity monitor prior to the commencement of the intervention, immediately following the intervention period and four weeks following the intervention period to evaluate fatigue, sleep health, mood and quality of life.
