The 2016 meeting of the International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference will take place in London at City, University of London from the 14th – 16th December 2016. Find out more about the exciting aphasia research being presented, including research funded by the Stroke Association.
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 medical journal Stroke, a new US study suggests that treatment of chronic stroke patients with injections of modified, adult stem cells into their brains is safe, and could lead to recovery of movement that was originally lost due to stroke.
Vision problems are common after stroke. This Lectureship will investigate the link between the tasks used in vision rehabilitation and everyday visual activities. It will also use brain scanning to investigate the effects of rehabilitation on activity in the areas of the brain responsible for vision.
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

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.
Can a movement-sensing wristwatch prompt arm rehabilitation exercise at home?
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.
