An Innovative STRoke Interactive Virtual thErapy (STRIVE) Online Platform for Community-Dwelling Stroke Survivors: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 2020 07; 101(7):1131-1137.AP

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To investigate the STRoke Interactive Virtual thErapy (STRIVE) intervention on upper-extremity clinical outcomes in community-dwelling stroke survivors.

DESIGN

Assessor-blinded randomized controlled trial.

SETTING

Study screening and testing was conducted in a university clinic. Participants completed the virtual therapy (VT) intervention in a community-based stroke support group setting.

PARTICIPANTS

Of 124 stroke survivors initially assessed, 60 participants were recruited (time poststroke, 13.4±8.9 y). Participants were allocated to either VT or control group using a block randomization design and were stratified by sex.

INTERVENTIONS

Participants were randomized to receive 8 weeks of VT or usual care. The intervention consisted of approximately 45 minutes of twice weekly VT training on the Jintronix Rehabilitation System.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES

Between-group differences in the Fugl-Meyer Upper Extremity scale and Action Research Arm Test score were joint primary outcomes in this study.

RESULTS

Significant between-group differences for the Fugl-Meyer Upper Extremity scale were seen at the end of the intervention (F1, 1=5.37, P=.02, d=0.41). No significant differences were observed with the Action Research Arm Test. No adverse events were reported.

CONCLUSIONS

We demonstrated clinically meaningful improvements in gross upper extremity motor function and use of the affected arm after a VT intervention delivered via a community-based stroke support group setting. This data adds to the contexts in which VT can be used to improve upper limb function. Use of VT in community-based rehabilitation in chronic stroke recovery is supported.
