Can a virtual-reality-home help stroke survivors do better at home?
Could an ARNI-based rehabilitation approach benefit stroke survivors?
A research project to find out if a ‘polypill’ can help reduce the chance that people who have had a stroke will have a heart attack or another stroke.
Inflammation is an important defence mechanism that the body uses in response to injury or infection. However, it can also be highly damaging to the brain directly after stroke. This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovey.
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.
This research will develop a new self-management programme for stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, to help them to adjust to and manage their lives after stroke.
Non-invasive brain stimulation to improve word-finding abilities in stroke survivors
Identifying how best to combine results from several clinical trials of a stroke rehabilitation treatment.
Non-invasive brain stimulation may help re-learning of movement after stroke
Stroke survivors and their relatives consistently ask for information about how much recovery can be expected. This study will look at how well a patient can use their arm after stroke, and at their brain images recorded within 72-hours after stroke. The hope is that brain images can improve our prediction of patient arm movement recovery at six months after stroke.
