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.

Morgan IAT to showcase Haptics glove prototype at Innovate 2016

Is this any better that the intersection between these 18 posts on haptics and these 51 posts on gloves?
I will not do the work to analyze this question, your doctor group should have a person on staff analyzing which research should be brought in house and create protocols from that research. Or a single great stroke association could do that analysis for every stroke doctor in the world. But no, we have fucking failures of stroke associations.

Family-run manufacturer, Morgan Innovation & Technology Ltd will showcase its Haptics glove prototype to over 2,500 visitors at Innovate 2016 on November 2nd and 3rd in Manchester.  Morgan IAT is one of just 100 companies to have won a place in the exhibition.

Haptics glove prototype
Morgan IAT, in conjunction with the University of Southampton is developing an innovative haptic system for the hand that will provide individuals with a sense of touch. Initially the product is being developed to help with rehabilitation of stroke patients and is undergoing trials at the university.
Sky’s Swipe programme recently filmed presenter Gemma Morris trying on the glove and interviewing CEO Nigel Clarke, as part of a weekly tech update. Search ‘glove that mimics physical touch’ on Youtube (watch from 06:25).
The glove-like device supplies various stimulations to the hand and fingers. These can be requested from a predefined list of options or generated depending on the patient’s hand movements and gestures within a virtual world. Currently housed in an ABS enclosure for desk mounting, the system’s housing, weight and size are all under development.
Haptics is a feedback technology that mimics the sense of touch by applying stimuli, such as pressure, temperature and vibration to the user.  When combined with virtual reality it allows users to see and feel the specific motion and action they are performing.  The product could have applications for Stroke Rehabilitation, virtual reality, augmented reality gaming and other interactive applications.
Twice winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise (International trade), Morgan IAT understands the journey and pitfalls that developers can face in bringing their products to market.  They offer manufacturing and R&D services, and specialise in CE marking and FDA approvals.
Innovate UK Chief Executive Ruth Mckernan said:
Innovate 2016 will be an excellent opportunity for Morgan IAT to showcase their cutting edge innovation, the Haptics glove to a national and international audience. I congratulate Morgan IAT on their success in winning a place and look forward to their involvement in our annual flagship show of innovation excellence across the UK.
