Brief Summary:
Ischemic stroke is an important cause of death and disability in Western countries. Different risk factors have been identified such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, smoke, atrial fibrillation, obesity, and sedentary. The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of an approach based on the use of wearable devices for the identification and reduction of risk factors in patients with previous history of ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Wearable Devices Monitoring
Patients will be provided with wearable devices for at-home monitoring heart rhythm and rate, blood pressure, pulse oximetry, quality and quantity of sleep, and pace counting.
Device: Wearable devices for identifying and measuring risk factors for ischemic stroke
Identifying and monitoring cerebrovascular risk factors using wearable devices

Active Comparator: Standard of Care Monitoring
Patients will be evaluated by periodical clinical visits.
Other: Standard of care monitoring
Periodical medical examinations

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Compliance of patients to at-home follow-up by means of wearable devices [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Number of measurements actually performed in comparison to number of expected measurements

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Atrial fibrillation Detection Rate [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Percentage of subjects with atrial fibrillation detected within 1 month of follow-up

  2. Prevalence of Recurrent Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Prevalence of subjects with recurrent stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack within 1 month of follow-up
