Study information

Acronym

Study hypothesis

The general research question is whether a more intensive early stroke physiotherapy intervention facilitated by the Oswestry standing frame will promote improved and/or faster stroke recovery.
Specifically, is the Oswestry standing frame associated with improved clinical outcome for patients in the acute phase after stroke and what are the resource implications of using the standing frame?
