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.

Acadia working on rehab-from-home for stroke patients

I bet there is no comparison of results of this type of intervention, all they are doing is testing feasibility of transferring recovery completely to the patient.

Patients recovering from a stroke may soon be able to do rehab at home, with the help of an app.
Acadia University researcher Anne Sophie Champod is receiving a $148,000 grant for her post-stroke recovery and rehabilitation project.
Champod’s research team is exploring an interactive iPad application to treat a common syndrome that makes simple tasks difficult for many stroke patients.
With the app, patients could do rehab at home with the results sent directly to their clinicians.
Funding for the project comes from the Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation.
“This funding has enabled me to form a collaborative research team and build partnerships with two Nova Scotian companies to develop the app and design the required goggles worn during the treatment,” Champod said in a news release.
“This research could make a huge difference to people living with this debilitating condition.”
Funding is also going to Saint Mary’s University for its masters in applied health services research program.
“Research funding is only one aspect of the work we do,” said Krista Connell, chief executive officer of the foundation.
“The training and support we provide is ensuring researchers have the tools they need to improve the health of Nova Scotians.”
