The aim of this research is to develop and test a simple yet widely-applicable outcome measure for evaluating cognitive rehabilitation after stroke. Consultation with patients and carers will shape the design and content of the measure.
Published in the journal, BMJ Open, a new study sheds light on whether a community-based rehabilitation training programme could help stroke survivors regain their independence after stroke.
Published in the journal, Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, a new Stroke Association funded study suggests people who are in the chronic stages of stroke will improve their reaching accuracy at the speed at which they train their reaching movement.
Stroke survivors and their relatives consistently ask for information about how much recovery can be expected. This study will look at how well a patient can use their arm after stroke, and at their brain images recorded within 72-hours after stroke. The hope is that brain images can improve our prediction of patient arm movement recovery at six months after stroke.
The Stroke Association is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), which is the national membership organisation of leading medical and health research charities in the UK. Published today, the AMRC's 'Making a difference: Impact report 2017' highlights how the research of its member charities makes a difference.
What maintains stroke survivors’ continued use of self-managed computer therapy for aphasia?
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.
We are yet to understand the differences between those individuals who do and do not spontaneously recover language comprehension abilities. This research aims to uncover these differences.
On Wednesday 24th November, a Stroke Awareness Event was held at the University of Oxford, with the aim of raising awareness about stroke, stroke services and stroke research.
No two strokes are alike - the damage from each stroke leaves its own unique signature on a person's brain and behaviour. The current project will investigate how different types of stroke affect a person's long term recovery or deterioration
