Recently featured on the European Commission's Digital Economy news, the COGWATCH project helps stroke survivors to remaster sequential tasks of every day living.
As well as reducing independence, walking problems after stroke lead to lower daily activity, increasing risk of further stroke and health problems. A promising method of improving walking after stroke is through ‘auditory rhythmical cueing.’ which involves people walking to the rhythm of a sound beat.
This research is testing whether starting ‘active’ rehabilitation in hospital within 24 hours of stroke will lead to better recovery after stroke than traditional methods.
Although stroke survivors have reported fatigue as a problem, previous estimates of the numbers of people affected have varied greatly – from one-quarter to almost three-quarters of stroke survivors.
Amazing Brains: Research to Recovery. Previously known as our Keynote Lecture, our event took taking place on Wednesday, 15 May 2019, at the Science Museum in central London.
An investigation of whether functional strength training can improve the ability of stroke survivors to walk and use their arm and hand at least 1 year after stroke
In the proposed study it will be investigated if the Geriatric Anxiety Inventory (GAI) is suitable for use in stroke survivors aged 65 years and older, who are undergoing inpatient rehabilitation.
Early Supported Discharge (ESD) is the discharge of a stroke patient from hospital to their own home, co-ordinated by a team of therapists, nurses and a doctor. A number of ESD services have been set up across England. Do these services offer the same benefits to patients as those identified in clinical trials?
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.
Local stroke survivors have joined in a new stroke research program at the Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke Centre in Bromsgrove on Monday 05 September. STARR (stroke, technology and risk reduction) is a new research program, which will help stroke survivors manage their risk factors for recurrent stroke: a stroke that happens after someone has their first stroke.
