Recovery after a stroke can look differently for each person. We still have a lot to learn about recovery and rehabilitation after a stroke, especially for those with larger strokes and those in the chronic stages of stroke recovery. UTHealth Houston Stroke Institute’s Recovery and Rehabilitation program is made up of a multidisciplinary team that offers research opportunities and clinical evaluations.
Stroke Recovery Clinic
The stroke recovery clinic occurs once a month. In this clinic, our multidisciplinary team provides an extensive evaluation of a stroke survivor and offers recommendations and referrals for their recovery.
Multiple clinical trials are currently underway to learn more about different ways to improve stroke recovery. New trials are being developed to focus on accessible rehabilitation options, arm recovery, language recovery, and cognitive recovery and will appear on this page once approved.
This study aims to investigate the effect of the BQ therapy on regaining a patient’s independence and reducing their global disability following an Ischemic stroke.
The treatment aspires to utilize the ideal window for recovery in the first few weeks following a stroke. Treatment begins 4 to 21 days post-stroke and therapy is administered five times a week over the course of 9 weeks.
Each therapy session is coupled with a device guided physical/occupational therapy regimen that is in line with the stroke rehabilitation.

The Institute for Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease at UTHealth is looking for patients to enroll in TRANSPORT2, a clinical trial evaluating the efficacy of 2mA or 4mA doses of transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCs) in combination with modified Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (mCIMT) on upper limb impairment after ischemic stroke.
Help us by referring qualified patients who match the following eligibility criteria:
- Between the age of 18 and 80 years old
- First-ever ischemic stroke that occurred in the last 6 months
- Experienced one-sided arm weakness as a result of the stroke
- Have NOT received injections for spasticity in the last 3 months
- Does not have a history of seizures (isolated febrile childhood seizures may be ok)
Have a patient matching the above criteria?
