Effect of robotic tilt table on rehabilitation outcome in right side versus left side hemiplegia
AUTHOR(S): Suraj Kumar, Ramakant Yadav, Aafreen and Sandeep Yadav
Stroke is highly debilitating and leaving the individuals depend on some kind of assistance for months or years, or even for their entire life. Injury location and size have a strong influence on its clinical evolution, and the differences in the functional consequences of right and left hemispheric strokes are of particular interest. The objective of the study is to find out the difference between rehabilitation outcomes depending upon the side affected. Total 80 hemiplegic patients (age 50.61±7.46 years, 8.65±5.82 days after stroke) were assigned randomly into two groups for 30 days of Conventional physiotherapy or Robotic tilt-table rehabilitation. Both groups were further stratified into subgroups of right and left hemiplegia. The National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), Mini Mental Scale Examination (MMSE), Modified Ashworth Scale, Quality of Life and Muscle strength of affected upper and lower limb outcomes were assessed either before (day 0) or after (day 30) the rehabilitative protocols. After statistical analysis using paired and unpaired t test results shows that there was no statistical difference found in the outcome variables of right and left hemiplegic patients after the intervention either conventional or robotic tilt table. This study concludes that the rehabilitation outcome either of right hemiplegia or left hemiplegia are found to be same after rehabilitation.
