UC Irvine is seeking stroke survivors to participate in research study


Brain Computer Interface system or Standard Physical Therapy can help patients improve walking after stroke.

There are limited treatment options for improving strength after stroke. We are currently conducting a research study that explores the possibility of using brain waves to control a functional electrical stimulation device to help stroke patients improve their walking.

The study involves 4 weeks of therapy, and includes several exams, plus brain imaging (EEG and possibly TMS). There is no charge to the patient or insurance company for any participation, and subjects are compensated $100 at the completion of the study. All activities take place on the main UC Irvine campus, in Irvine. Whenever possible, we let health care providers know of their patient’s participation in the study.

Eligible patients will have had a stroke, are able to walk with or without an assistive device/AFO (ankle foot orthosis) for more than 30 feet without help, and still have leg weakness.
