Can a movement-sensing wristwatch prompt arm rehabilitation exercise at home?
We are a proud partner in the National Prevention Research Initiative (NPRI), a partnership of 16 health research funders including government departments, research councils and medical charities. Launched today, a new report sheds light on the NPRI's fresh approach to preventing ill health.
Published in the medical journal, The Lancet, a new study suggests that, when combined, ten potentially modifiable risk factors account for 90% of strokes worldwide. The study was co-funded by the Stroke Association.

Could an ARNI-based rehabilitation approach benefit stroke survivors?
Use of a metronome with variable beats to retrain walking in stroke survivors
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.
Trial of an electrical stimulation device for recovery of upper limb function in chronic stroke patients
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.
