Acute effects of bi-hemispheric transcranial direct current stimulation on the neuromuscular function of patients with chronic stroke: A randomized controlled study

Abstract

Muscle weakness in patients with chronic stroke is due to neuromuscular disorders such as muscle atrophy, loss of voluntary activation or weak muscle contractile properties which are majored by the imbalance of interhemispheric inhibition following stroke. In patients with chronic stroke, unilateral transcranial direct current stimulation improved the maximal isometric strength of paretic knee extensors, but bilateral transcranial direct current stimulation failed to improve concentric strength. This study aimed to assess if a bilateral current stimulation improves isometric maximal strength, voluntary activation and contractile properties of knee extensors in patients with chronic stroke.
