Non-invasive brain stimulation to improve word-finding abilities in stroke survivors
There is evidence that during the coronavirus pandemic fewer people have been recorded to have transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke. That’s why the Stroke Association is urging people to continue to act fast and call 999 if they experience signs of stroke.
The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
Can a virtual-reality-home help stroke survivors do better at home?
Techniques to predict - and in future prevent - brain haemorrhage in people treated with warfarin after stroke caused by atrial fibrillation
Stroke is the biggest cause of complex disability worldwide, with an estimated 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK today. Living with the long term impact of the condition can be devastating, yet this new report suggests that research funding dedicated to stroke remains disproportionately small compared to other diseases.
This research will investigate 2000 drugs that are already known to be safe for use in humans to see if they could help reduce the amount of damage to the brain an intracerebral haemorrhage (a type of stroke caused by a bleed in the brain) causes.
This research aims to develop a new method of teaching self-management skills after stroke.
In 2018, we conducted the largest ever survey of stroke survivors and their carers to find out more about their lives. Over 11,000 people affected by stroke in the UK took the time to share their stories with us. Find out what we learnt from the survey.
