Abstract

AVERT is a large, international clinical trial that tests whether introducing early and frequent exercise helps reduce the unacceptably high burden of death and disability associated with stroke. We are also testing if the intervention is cost effective. This trial will provide reliable evidence to guide clinical practice. If positive, broad implementation in both developed and developing countries is likely, thus helping to reduce the global burden of stroke related death and disability.
