Functional, cognitive and emotional outcomes after Transient Ischemic Attack: A prospective, controlled cohort study to inform future rehabilitative interventions (FACE TIA).
This research will investigate the use of orthitics (for example, braces and splints) early on in a stroke survivor’s rehabilitation. The results will inform a larger study into early orthotic use after stroke.
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.
First results from the AVERT, early rehabilitation trial were unveiled at the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESO) today.
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.
How important is the relationship between therapist and stroke survivor in the rehabilitation of language ability?
Yesterday, a special event was held at Queen's Hospital Romford to showcase its Robotic Assisted Training for the Upper Limb after Stroke (RATULS). Find out more
New study suggests that task-specific reach-to-grasp training for arm and hand rehabilitation is feasible for stroke survivors to perform, and acceptable for them to do.
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 a stroke leads to lower daily activity, increasing the 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.
