Our charity collaborated with SBRI Healthcare and the AHSN Network to fund innovations in technologies to improve diagnosis and rehabilitation of stroke.
This research can help to improve research and care for complex thinking problems that stand in the way of a stroke survivor’s abilities to undertake everyday activities.
Dysarthria is a type of speech problem. This research aims to understand the recovery from this speech problem, and how to measure it. This can lead the way for better treatments and care to be developed.
This research can improve a camera-based computer programme so it can be used by health care professionals and stroke survivors to help in physical rehabilitation.
Stroke survivors often have problems with moving their arms and hands after stroke. This project will investigate whether a more intensive physical rehabilitation programme can improve arm and hand movement, which could ultimately lead to changes in treatment guidelines for stroke.
This research looks to understand if a new technological device, the Neuroplatform, can improve arm and hand movement in stroke survivors at early stages of their recovery.
This project will investigate whether a new treatment can help stroke survivors with hemianopia (loss of sight to one side) to manage their vision problems.
Two-thirds of stroke survivors have problems with their sight after stroke, and around half of these will be left with long term sight problems. This new research programme aims to establish better treatment and support for stroke survivors with vision loss after stroke in the UK.
This research can improve a digital assistant, VERA, aiming to support stroke survivors in their physical rehabilitation.
This project will explore whether more intensive communication treatment programmes could help support stroke survivors and their families in the UK.
