      Prominent publications by Stefan Hesse

      KOL-Index: 11939

      OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether the combined approach of botulinum toxin type A (BtxA) and electrical stimulation was more effective than the toxin alone in the treatment of chronic upper limb spasticity after stroke.

      DESIGN: Randomized, placebo-controlled study with four treatment groups: 1000 units BtxA (Dysport) + electrical stimulation (A), 1000 units BtxA (B), placebo + electrical stimulation (C) and placebo (D).

      SETTING: A neurological rehabilitation clinic.

      SUBJECTS: Twenty-four ...

      KOL-Index: 11870

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Recent studies have been made of the novel treatment of lower limb spasticity after stroke with botulinum toxin A, and the results were based mostly on the clinical assessment made before and after treatment. This study investigated the effects of toxin on ankle muscle activity during gait in patients with severe extensor spasticity. The questions posed were whether the toxin particularly diminishes the so-called premature muscle activity as a major cause of ...

      KOL-Index: 10134

      OBJECTIVE: To determine whether use of a robotic arm trainer for bilateral exercise in daily repetitive training for a 3-week period reduced spasticity and improved motor control in the arm of severely affected, chronic hemiparetic subjects.

      DESIGN: Before-after trial.

      SETTING: Community rehabilitation center in Germany.

      PARTICIPANTS: Consecutive sample of 12 chronic hemiparetic patients; minimum stroke interval 6 months; patients could maximally protract the affected shoulder, hold the ...

      KOL-Index: 10005

      OBJECTIVE: To compare the gait of hemiparetic subjects walking on a treadmill with various body weight supports and walking on the floor.

      DESIGN: Hemiparetic subjects walked on a treadmill, secured in a harness, with no body weight support and with 15% and 30% body weight relief, and walked on a floor.

      SETTING: Kinematic laboratory of a department of rehabilitation.

      SUBJECTS: Eighteen hemiparetic stroke patients.

      MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Gait cycle parameters and kinesiologic ...

      KOL-Index: 9698

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Treadmill training with partial body weight support is a new and promising therapy in gait rehabilitation of stroke patients. The study intended to investigate its efficiency compared with gait training within regular physiotherapy in nonambulatory patients with chronic hemiparesis.

      METHODS: An A-B-A single-case study design compared treadmill training plus partial body weight support (A) with physiotherapy based on the Bobath concept (B) in seven nonambulatory ...

      OBJECTIVES: To investigate to what extent and with how much therapeutic effort nonambulatory stroke patients could train a gait-like movement on a newly developed, machine-supported gait trainer.

      DESIGN: Open study comparing the movement on the gait trainer with assisted walking on the treadmill.

      SETTING: Motion analysis laboratory of a rehabilitation centre.

      SUBJECTS: Fourteen chronic, nonambulatory hemiparetic patients.

      INTERVENTION: Complex gait analysis while training on the gait ...

      Objective: To investigate the effect of body weight support on the gait of hemiparetic subjects walking on a treadmill. Design: Survey. Patients: Eleven nonambulatory hemi paretic subjects. Methods: Subjects walked on the treadmill with full weight bearing and with 15%, 30%, 45%, and 60% body weight support at constant walking veloc ity. Cycle parameters, symmetry ratios, and the kinematic EMG of several lower limb muscles of the affected leg were recorded. Video-analysis served for ...

      KOL-Index: 9056

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare treadmill and electromechanical gait trainer therapy in subacute, nonambulatory stroke survivors. The gait trainer was designed to provide nonambulatory subjects the repetitive practice of a gait-like movement without overexerting therapists.

      METHODS: This was a randomized, controlled study with a crossover design following an A-B-A versus a B-A-B pattern. A consisted of 2 weeks of gait trainer therapy, and B consisted of 2 ...

      OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of repetitive locomotor training on an electromechanical gait trainer plus physiotherapy in subacute stroke patients.

      DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial.

      SETTING: Four German neurological rehabilitation centres.

      SUBJECTS: One hundred and fifty-five non-ambulatory patients (first-time stroke <60 days).

      INTERVENTION: Group A received 20 min locomotor training and 25 min physiotherapy; group B had 45 min physiotherapy every week day for four weeks.

      BACKGROUND: No rehabilitation intervention has effectively improved functional use of the arm and hand in patients with severe upper limb paresis after stroke. Pilot studies suggest the potential for transcranial direct current stimulation and bilateral robotic training to enhance gains.

      OBJECTIVE: In a double-blind, randomized trial the combination of these interventions was tested.

      METHODS: This study randomized 96 patients with an ischemic supratentorial lesion of 3 to 8 weeks' ...

      OBJECTIVE: To determine the safety and efficacy of aerobic exercise on activities of daily living in the subacute phase after stroke.

      DESIGN: Multicentre, randomised controlled, endpoint blinded trial.

      SETTING: Seven inpatient rehabilitation sites in Germany (2013-17).

      PARTICIPANTS: 200 adults with subacute stroke (days 5-45 after stroke) with a median National Institutes of Health stroke scale (NIHSS, range 0-42 points, higher values indicating more severe strokes) score of 8 ...

      DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial.

      SETTING: Rehabilitation center.

      PARTICIPANTS: Eighty patients with a fully loadable implant who could walk independently with crutches after unilateral total hip arthroplasty were randomized to receive either TT-BWS (treatment group) or conventional PT (controls), for 10 working ...

      KOL-Index: 7969

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This study investigated the non-velocity-related effects of a 1-bar rigid ankle-foot orthosis on the gait of hemiparetic subjects, with particular emphasis on the muscle activity of the paretic lower limb.

      METHODS: Twenty-one hemiparetic subjects who had been using an ankle-foot orthosis for equinovarus deformity for <1 week participated. Patients walked cued by a metronome at a comparable speed with and without the orthosis. Dependent variables were basic, ...

      KOL-Index: 7754

      BACKGROUND: Given the rising number of strokes worldwide, and the large number of individuals left with disabilities after stroke, novel strategies to reduce disability, increase functions in the motor and the cognitive domains, and improve quality of life are of major importance. Physical activity is a promising intervention to address these challenges but, as yet, there is no study demonstrating definite outcomes. Our objective is to assess whether additional treatment in the form of ...

      BACKGROUND: Stair climbing up and down is an essential part of everyday's mobility. To enable wheelchair-dependent patients the repetitive practice of this task, a novel gait robot, G-EO-Systems (EO, Lat: I walk), based on the end-effector principle, has been designed. The trajectories of the foot plates are freely programmable enabling not only the practice of simulated floor walking but also stair climbing up and down. The article intended to compare lower limb muscle activation ...
