The Feasibility platform for stroke studies (FePASS) is an online resource that helps researchers to design clinical stroke studies. FePASS estimates the proportion of patients who might be eligible for a hypothetical stroke study according to its inclusion and exclusion criteria. It enables researchers to estimate the number of patients who can be included in a future study based on the expected number of stroke patients treated in participating hospitals. By choosing different parameters of eligibility criteria the trial design and hence patient recruitment can be optimized.
