Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 12876 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.

Changes in functional connectivity of motor zones in the course of treatment with a regent multimodal complex exoskeleton in neurorehabilitation of post-stroke patients
The effect of a treatment course with a Regent multimodal
complex exoskeleton (MCE) on the reorganization of cortical locomotor
zones was studied in 14 patients with post-stroke hemiparesis, mainly in
the chronic stage of the disease. Specific activation zones were
identified prior to treatment in the primary sensorimotor and
supplementary motor areas and the inferior parietal lobules of both
affected and healthy hemispheres by functional magnetic resonance
imaging (fMRI) used in a special passive sensorimotor paradigm. After a
treatment course with the MCE, temporal characteristics of walking were
found to improve, which was accompanied by a decrease in the activation
zones of the inferior parietal lobules, especially in the healthy
hemisphere, and a significant increase in the activation zones of the
primary sensorimotor and supplementary motor areas. Significant changes
in intrahemispheric and interhemispheric interactions were revealed by
analyzing the functional connectivity of the zones under study before
and after a course of treatment with the MCE.
