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

Accelerometer-Based Recorder of Fingers Dynamic Movements for Post-Stroke Rehabilitation
Stroke is a disease that currently attracts more attention in
Indonesia according to the statistics provided by the Ministry of Health
of the Republic of Indonesia. This research was motivated by the
shortage of physiotherapists which can not catch the increasing number
of stroke patients. The therapy becomes less effective and less
efficient since each therapist must handle too many patients during
his/her work hours. This research has developed a device prototype that
can help the therapy to measure and monitor patient exercise, especially
at the final stage of rehabilitation when the patient gets therapy to
move actively. The angle of the moving body parts that can represent
the ability of patient motion was measured using accelerometers. The
developed prototype was in the form of a glove, equipped with an Arduino
Nano and two accelerometer modules, that measures the motion of the
thumb and index finger. The device was calibrated and tested to
determine the characteristics of the sensors. This test showed that the
gloves prototype had an accuracy of 95,8% and precision of 99,6%. The
application of the prototype was carried out on four types of finger
movements, namely thumb abduction-adduction, thumb flexion-extension,
finger flexion-hyperextension, and finger abduction-adduction. The
prototype was also tested for its ability to work in variations of
direction and position of the hand.
