Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Behaviour - Augmented activity feedback
Behaviour - Speed-only feedback

Experimental: Augmented activity feedback - Feedback three times per week about 10-m walking speed, plus amount and types of physical activity measured using wireless bilateral ankle sensors that detect bouts of walking and cycling speed, duration, and distance.

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- Admission for acute inpatient rehabilitation of a first stroke (or second stroke after
full recovery from prior TIA/Stroke)

- Time from onset of stroke to admission for rehabilitation < 35 days

points)

- Ability to follow simple instructions, especially to understand verbal reinforcement
about activity.

- Independent in mobility prior to admission by the Barthel Index.

(for example, 3 strides of the left leg alternating with 2 on the right leg). Subjects
can use any type of assistive device and brace needed.

- Able to understand and repeat information related to the Informed Consent. The subject
signs a Consent form.
Minimum age
18 Years
Maximum age
No limit
Gender
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
No
Key exclusion criteria
- Current medical disease that will limit physical therapy at the time of randomization
or limited walking prior to the stroke, such as serious infection, DVT, orthostatic
hypotension, > stage 2 decubitus ulcer of buttocks or legs, congestive heart failure,
claudication, and pain with weight-bearing or walking. Subjects can be entered if a
complication resolves within 7 days of admission screening.

- Aphasia with inability to follow 2-step directions during therapeutic instructions or
answers Yes/No to questions with < 75% accuracy related to personal health and
symptoms.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of daily feedback about physical
activity (number of bouts of walking, duration of bouts, total walking distance, average and
fastest walking speed) and walking average speed compared to feedback about walking speed
only on walking-related outcomes during inpatient rehabilitation for stroke. For the first
time, daily walking and other exercise will be monitored by bilateral triaxial accelerometers
on the ankles. Activity-recognition algorithms will analyze the inpatient sensor data and
return a summary to the participants at each site.
