Virtually Assisted Home Rehabilitation After Acute STroke (VAST-rehab)

Virtually Assisted Home Rehabilitation After Acute STroke (VAST-rehab)

Change in Functional independence as assessed by the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]
This is an 18 item questionnaire and each is scored from 1(complete dependence on helper) to 7(complete independence), a higher number indicating more independence

Patient-Specific Functional Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]
This tool allows for Subjects to self report activities of daily living that have been affected by stroke and rate severity of impact on these activities. This is scored from 0(unable to perform activity) to 10(able to perform activity at the same level as before injury or problem)

Change in impact of stroke as assessed by the Stroke Impact Scale (SIS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]
This is a A 59 item questionnaire whereby subjects identify the impact of stroke on strength, hand function, mobility, activities of daily living, memory, communication, emotion, and handicap. Item responses are scored on a 5-point Likert-style scale. A score of 1 = an inability to complete the item and a score of 5 = no difficulty experienced at all. A standardized score ranging from 0 to 100 is calculated for all domains, with higher scores indicating a higher quality of life

Change in quality of life as assessed by the EuroQol-5-5level scale (EQ-5D-5L) [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]

A self reporting, quality of life measurement that asks Subjects to rate their severity of problems related to mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and anxiety/depression. There are 5 questions in the first section and each question is scored from 0-5,a higher number indicating a worse outcome .There is a visual scale at the end that is scored from 0(worst health) to 100(best health), higher number indicating better outcome .

Change in cognitive impairment as assessed by the Short Montreal Cognitive Assessment(s-MoCA) [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]
8 item questionnaire ,with a possible score of 1-5, a lower number indicating higher cognitive impairment

Change in performance in activities of daily living as assessed by the Barthel Index [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]
This is a scoring technique that measures performance in ten activities of daily living including feeding, wheelchair to bed transfers, grooming ,chair to toilet transfers, walking, using stairs, dressing, and continence of bowels and bladder. This is a 10 item questionnaire and is scored from 0-100, a higher score indicating higher level of independence.

Change in symptoms related to stroke as assessed by the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale(NIHSS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]
the score for each ability is a number between 0(normal functioning) to 4(completely impaired). The score is calculated by adding the number for each element of the scale with a highest score of 42, a higher score meaning more impairment.

Change in degree of disability or dependence as measured by the Modified Rankin Score(mRS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of study (about 13-14 weeks after baseline) ]
mRS is a 6 point disability scale with possible scores from 0(no disability) to 5(disability requiring constant care) a higher score indicating more disability
