Trial of an electrical stimulation device for recovery of upper limb function in chronic stroke patients
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 electrical stimulation of the leg alleviate bladder problems caused by stroke?
Stimulating the brain to help comprehension in aphasia
Non-invasive brain stimulation may help re-learning of movement after stroke
Non-invasive brain stimulation to improve word finding abilities in stroke survivors
Funded by the Wellcome Trust, researchers at Newcastle University have shown that, in monkeys, it is possible to restore hand and arm movement lost through brain damage.
Some of the most common effects of stroke are physical, and include things like muscle weakness and fatigue. This guide describes some of the physical effects of stroke and explains how they are diagnosed and treated.
Co-funded by the Stroke Association, a new review of the research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for the recovery of leg movement and walking suggests that although it can bring about changes in leg function, the design of existing studies are very different, making it difficult to determine its effectiveness.
