Abstract

This article reviews randomized control trials (RCTs) undertaken in stroke rehabilitation in the year 2005. A Medline search generated 31 RCTs in stroke rehabilitation in the year 2005 in the English language. These trials were primarily efficacy studies of a number of treatments: medications such as folate, vitamin B12 and bisphosphonates in preventing osteoporotic related hip fractures, compression stockings in preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), use of mechanical robots and positioning of the upper limb to help improve function; and, transcranial magnetic coil stimulation, acupuncture and neural tissue transplant to enhance motor recovery in post-stroke patients.
