The Stroke Ward at Manchester Royal Infirmary has a strong
commitment to supporting research with the aim of improving future
treatment for stroke patients.
Below are the current trials that we are supporting.
For further information about the trials, please
ACST-2 Asymptomatic Carotid Surgery Trial 2
ACST-2 is a world-wide stroke prevention study comparing carotid
endarterectomy (CEA) versus carotid artery stenting (CAS) in
patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis where there is
substantial uncertainty as to which treatment is more

Motorised Rehabilitation of walking- MoRoW3
Researchers at the University of Manchester are working with NHS
and other partners to develop a robot to help people learn to walk
again after a stroke. The Motorised Rehabilitation of Walking
(MoRoW-3) is funded by the National Institute of Health Research's
Invention for Innovation programme. It aims to support the
patient's weight and help them move their legs through a normal
stepping movement pattern.
The 1st part of this project involves collecting
measurements (height, leg length and circumference, hips and waist)
from 500 stroke survivors to make sure Morow-3 accommodates the
full range of body shapes and weights.
