Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective 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.

Irish scientist developes soft robotic suit to overcome disability

What other ones is your stroke hospital comparing this to? Like these 3 posts on soft roboticss? Or these 3 posts on soft exosuit?

A volunteer using the “soft” robot device that can help help stroke patients to walk again
 I bet that volunteer is not a stroke survivor. Left arm would likely not be usable and the left leg is bent too much.
An Irish bioengineer has won an international prize for developing a robotic suit to help stroke patients walk again.
Prof Conor Walsh of Harvard University was one of five individuals to win an enterprise award for research, sponsored by watch manufacturer Rolex. The award includes a cash prize of €97,000.
Prof Walsh (35) is a mechanical and biomedical engineer who completed his primary degree in 2003 at Trinity College Dublin, before going on to complete masters and PhD degrees at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the founder of the Harvard Biodesign Lab, a centre that designs “soft” robotic technologies to help augment and restore human performance.
