The ReTrain study is investigating the effectiveness of a community-based rehabilitation training programme for people who have suffered a stroke. Published in the journal BMJ Open, the 'study protocol' for ReTrain outlines why the study was needed, and includes the methods to be used in the study, the resources required for the study and a timeline for completion.
New study suggests that task-specific reach-to-grasp training for arm and hand rehabilitation is feasible for stroke survivors to perform, and acceptable for them to do.
