Exploring the effects of lowering blood pressure and a lower dose of clot busting drug on stroke outcome
Testing the idea that fatigue occurring after stroke is due to changes in the brain regions controlling the muscles using non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging techniques in 142 stroke patients, half of who will be those who complain of fatigue.
Fluoxetine is a drug used to relieve depression. A recent French trial suggested it might improve strength recovery in stroke survivors with residual arm weakness.
This project aims to develop and test a repetitive functional task practice (RFTP) therapy programme. Research physiotherapists will develop the programme in conjunction with stroke unit staff and patients.
