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.
Stroke survivors often have problems with moving their arms and hands after stroke. This project will investigate whether a more intensive physical rehabilitation programme can improve arm and hand movement, which could ultimately lead to changes in treatment guidelines for stroke.
We were successful in applying for funding for this class. Stroke survivors report this issue as being important to them. It is accessible to people in the hard to reach areas of Scotland.
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.
This research looks to understand if a new technological device, the Neuroplatform, can improve arm and hand movement in stroke survivors at early stages of their recovery.
Can a movement-sensing wristwatch prompt arm rehabilitation exercise at home?
New research from Stroke Association Fellow, Dr Anna Kuppuswamy, suggests that feelings of limb heaviness after stroke are not related to actual muscle weakness.
Scientists at the University of Southampton are to develop and trial a new wearable technology to help people who have had a stroke recover use of their arm and hand. Find out more.
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.
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.
