Pain in the shoulder is a common problem after stroke. As well as causing distress through pain and lost sleep, it prevents rehabilitation of the arm and hand. This study will identify ‘who’, ‘when’ and ‘how’ to treat people with painful shoulders after stroke more effectively, and should lead to better outcomes for them.
Spatial neglect is caused when damage to the brain after stroke means that it no longer received information about one side of the body and/or world. Stroke survivors with spatial neglect might not be aware of anything happening on one side of their body. This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
The ReTrain study is investigating the effectiveness of a community-based rehabilitation training programme for people who have suffered a stroke. Published in the journal BMJ Open, the 'study protocol' for ReTrain outlines why the study was needed, and includes the methods to be used in the study, the resources required for the study and a timeline for completion.
Comparing two treatment strategies in patients with visual problems after stroke
This research looks to understand if a new technological device, the Neuroplatform, can improve arm and hand movement in stroke survivors at early stages of their recovery.
Could an ARNI-based rehabilitation approach benefit stroke survivors?
This research can improve a digital assistant, VERA, aiming to support stroke survivors in their physical rehabilitation.
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.
This research aims to develop a new method of teaching self-management skills after stroke.
The purpose of this research is to adapt an existing group psychological support course to make it suitable for stroke.
