The Stroke Association has joined forces with 14 other charities and Sport England to launch a new campaign: “We Are Undefeatable”. The campaign aims to support people living with health conditions to build physical activity and exercise into their lives and to celebrate every victory, big or small.
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.
This research will test a new questionnaire which has been designed to measure the impact that stroke-related vision problems have on a stroke survivor’s quality of life.
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.
People can experience a range of changes to their mood and thinking after a stroke. While we have information about these changes in the short-term (up to 12 months) after stroke, we don’t know much about the longer term changes. This research aims to find out more about how thinking and mood are affected long-term after stroke.
