MC10 Inpatient Stroke Recovery

Clinical Trial ID: NCT04219670

Description

This observational trial seeks to assess the feasibility of using non-invasive, portable, real-time body-worn sensors to continuously monitor, quantify, and interpret recovery during inpatient treatment of stroke

OBJECTIVES: Aim 1: Assess the feasibility of continuous long-term monitoring of inpatients with stroke using wearable sensors. The investigators will obtain quantitative health data from research-grade, wireless, wearable sensors (including MC10 BioStampRC) on individuals with subacute and chronic stroke in the inpatient setting, as well as healthy controls. The investigators will specifically check for variability in device data, as well as consistency and periodicity of sensor readings across the clinical study period. The investigators will analyze test-retest reliability and inter-rater reliability of using the wearable sensor technology for clinical and monitoring applications. Furthermore, the investigators will determine whether the sensors can distinguish biometric and activity characteristics between healthy controls and individuals with stroke. Aim 2: Quantify upper and lower extremity movement impairments, mobility-related activities, speech and swallowing activities, and clinical parameters during stroke recovery. The investigators will obtain continuous biometric and movement-based sensor data for clinical symptoms (e.g., muscle activation, heart rate variability, talk time, and gait quality) during the performance of validated clinical tests and during general inpatient activities (e.g., therapy, eating, and sleeping). The investigators will compare device data with clinically validated measures of movement and language function, such as the Modified Ashworth Scale or Western Aphasia Battery. The investigators will describe variation of device data in subgroups of subjects defined by clinician assessed clinically validated measures (10-Meter Walk Test, Mini-Mental Status Exam, etc.). The investigators will also assess the ability of the sensors to capture response to treatment, such as movement therapy, speech therapy, medication, and Botox by comparing sensor data before and after treatment. The investigators will provide evidence about the degree to which the measured variables are intercorrelated. Lastly, the investigators will evaluate and compare the state of recovery between patients at time of discharge using sensor-based outcomes.
