As part of our research programme, we fund exceptional candidates from stroke professional backgrounds to our prestigious Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Fellowship positions. Meet our new fellows for 2017.
Anne Rowan talks about her experience of volunteering with us.
Stroke survivors can be referred to Moving Forward After Stroke for a 12-week exercise programme. Exercise can help reduce the risk of an individual suffering a second stroke, and helps survivors to overcome challenges they face following the physical impact of their stroke.
MR CLEAN is a Dutch trial that investigated treatment of a severe form of ischaemic stroke (blockage type stroke) with thrombolysis alone (dissolving a clot with clot-busting drugs), versus treatment with both thrombolysis.
New research review suggests that post-stroke fatigue is a symptom independent of depression, pain and sleep problems, and may depend on the 'excitability' of the movement part of the brain.
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.
Two new research studies were published today, supporting the use of thrombectomy (mechanical retrieval of clots in the brain) for the treatment of large ischaemic strokes.
On February 11, at the International Stroke Conference (ISC 2015 in Nashville, USA) the latest findings were released from four, large studies investigating the effect of treating patients with mechanical clot retrieval.
