STUDY OBJECTIVES: Sleep-wake dysfunction is bidirectionally associated with the pathogenesis and evolution of stroke. Longitudinal and prospective measurement of sleep after chronic stroke remains poorly characterized because of a lack of validated objective and ambulatory sleep measurement tools in neurological populations. This study aimed to validate a multisensor sleep monitor, the SenseWear Armband (SWA), in patients with ischemic stroke and control patients using at-home polysomnography. METHODS: Twenty-eight radiologically confirmed patients with ischemic stroke (aged 69.61 ± 7.35 years; mean = 4.1 years poststroke) and 16 control patients (aged 73.75 ± 7.10 years) underwent overnight..
