The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
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.
This project seeks to use training and a safe and easy way of electrically stimulating the brain to improve recall.
Researchers are looking for the conditions of Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) which offer the optimum improvement in re-learning of movement.
This study looks at finding non-invasive brain stimulation to improve word-finding abilities in stroke survivors.
The current study investigates safe, mild, electrical stimulation of the leg, to relieve bladder symptoms caused by stroke.
A new review of research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for recovery of leg movement and walking examines its pros and cons.
Existing vision tests do not tell us how a patient’s life will be influenced by their vision problems. This project aims to understand how the results of vision tests relate to how stroke survivors will be able to function in their daily lives.
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.
