Table 2 Descriptive data and results of comprehensive multiple variable regression model

From: Prevalence of fatigue in patients 3 months after stroke and association with early motor activity: a prospective study comparing stroke patients with a matched general population cohort

Independent variables   B OR (95 % CI)
Gender, n (%) female 91 (45.7 %) −0.58 0.56 (0.26–1.21)
Age, mean (SD, range) 73.8 (11.7, 30.7–91.3) −0.002 1.00 (0.97–1.03)
Pre-stroke fatigue, n (%) yes 53 (26.6 %) 1.30* 3.67 (1.62–8.31)
Depression (HADS-D), mean (SD) 3.8 (3.8) 0.27* 1.31 (1.17–1.47)
Pain (new since stroke), n (%) yes 38 (19.1 %) 1.51* 4.55 (1.82–11.34)
Pre-stroke function (mRS), mean (SD) 1.4 (1.1) 0.04 1.04 (0.70–1.54)
Stroke severity (NIHSS), mean (SD) 4.0 (3.7) 0.07 1.08 (0.97–1.19)
Early motor activity:
% of day in bed, mean (SD) 35.0 (22.8) 0.02* 1.02 (1.00–1.04)
% of day upright, mean (SD) 11.8 (9.3) 0.03 1.03 (0.98–1.07)
  1. N = 199, dependent variable fatigue (FSS-7 score ≥ 4.0), *significant at p < 0.05, *significant at p < 0.10 (trend). 77 participants (38.7 %) had fatigue
  2. HADS-D Hospital Anxiety & Depression Scale – Depression subscale (range of scores 0–21), mRS modified Rankin Scale (range of scores 0–5), NIHSS National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (range of scores 0–42)
