Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 12345 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

Mobile Tablet-Based Stroke Rehabilitation: Using mHealth Technology to Improve Access to Early Stroke Rehabilitation
Well shit, using smart phones or tablets for rehab has been out there for years.

Mobile health (mHealth) technology represents a means through
which more stroke survivors could access early stroke rehabilitation.
Although rehabilitation is most effective when begun early post-stroke,
limited resources (facilities, therapists) prevent survivors from
initiating therapy. Furthermore, the coupling of an aging population
with advances in acute therapy has led to an increase in the absolute
number of individuals suffering from and surviving strokes which in turn
has put further strain on already scarce rehabilitation resources.
There is an urgency to conduct high-quality research exploring
cost-effective and creative mHealth devices for early rehabilitation in
the acute setting. Mobile technology allows therapists to prescribe apps
based on standard cognitive/physical assessments in the acute setting,
remotely monitor patient progress across individual carepaths, and
update prescribed therapies based on patient feedback and recovery.
Recognition of the growing problem of accessing early stroke
rehabilitation, and the possibilities offered by mHealth technology led
to the development of the RecoverNow platform for stroke rehabilitation
in the acute setting. RecoverNow is a custom built, tablet-based stroke
rehabilitation platform that houses a variety of previously existing
apps with activities analogous or identical to exercises in speech
language and/or occupational therapy. While RecoverNow represents how
mobile technology can be utilized to address a growing public health
issue, the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of tablet-based
stroke rehabilitation are unknown. Studies with the goal of establishing
feasibility of early tablet-based stroke rehabilitation are needed and,
if appropriate, a randomized controlled trial to establish efficacy.
