Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 13999 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.
What this blog is for:
Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group. My back ground story is here:http://oc1dean.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-background-story_8.html

Virtual Rehabilitation Use for Paretic Upper Limb for Individuals with Chronic Hemiparetic Stroke
numerous deficiencies. The aim of this study was evaluate the effects of
virtual rehabilitation on chronic hemiparetic upper limb functionality
with application of Motor Activity Log–MAL, Wolf Motor Function
Test-WMFT and Abilhand. Quality of life was assessed by Stroke Specific
Quality of Life Scale-SSQOL-Brazil. A single case study (ABA type) was
done. Two participants were evaluated in the baseline, during the
training using virtual-reality with X-box360Kinect, and in followup.
About MAL, the participant 1 improved in the followup, while participant
2 remained. For Abilhand, the data remained stable for both. In the
participant 1 WMFT obtained improvement in the task 7 (weight in box)
and task 14 (prehension). The participant 2 acquired a constant behavior
in relation to the same tasks, while the results related to qualitative
aspects, remained stable for both. Virtual rehabilitation contributed
for greater functional use of the upper limb and better quality of life.
