This research programme could substantially increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
Development of new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to image vessel patterns and blood flow in patients with disease of their vertebral arteries
Use of a metronome with variable beats to retrain walking in stroke survivors
Identifying how best to combine results from several clinical trials of a stroke rehabilitation treatment
Early Supported Discharge (ESD) is the discharge of a stroke patient from hospital to their own home, co-ordinated by a team of therapists, nurses and a doctor.
