abstract

  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of excitatory Hz rTMS with H-coil over the lower limb motor areas combined with active cycling on paretic lower limb motor function in chronic post-stroke. BACKGROUND: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been recognized as a promising approach for the treatment of post-stroke deficits. DESIGN/METHODS: rTMS was delivered with the H-coil targeting the lower limbs (real or sham for 11 sessions over 3 weeks, with cross-over after 4 weeks wash-out, in 12 …
