  • Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) may be an effective option for restoring functional balance and postural control for patients with stroke.

Why this matters

    Benefits of NIBS on lower limb function recovery post stroke have not been assessed via meta-analytic approaches; these data found positive effects of treatment with NIBS on functional balance and postural control.
