The results of a three-year study into stroke patients and exercise were shared with funders, patients and carers at an event held in the Centre for Medicine at the University of Leicester yesterday.
The research, carried out by clinical researchers at Leicester’s Hospitals and the University of Leicester has successfully recruited 92 people who have had a stroke to take part in a feasibility study funded by us..
As well as hearing the results of the study, the attendees took part in discussions about further research.
Word from the Stroke Association
Dr Shamim Quadir, Research Communications Manager at the Stroke Association said: “Listening to the patient voice is the key to conducting impactful stroke research. After a stroke, survivors and their families are often left to work out what exercise to do themselves, so this is a really important day. Not only have we found out the results of this study to help support them, but the patients who took part will be actively involved on where the research should go in the future.”
