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.
My back ground story is here:

Freezing of gait and fall detection in Parkinson's disease using wearable sensors: A systematic review

We should with ANY initiative at all be able to use the same sensors to detect objective gait problems in stroke survivors and design protocols to address them. Then other survivors could benefit from this publicly available knowledge. But that won't occur because, 'All strokes are different, all stroke recoveries are different'. That fuckingly stupid statement is from your stroke medical professionals. A 'Get of of Jail Free' card so they have to know nothing and learn nothing about stroke recovery.

Journal of Neurology, 03/03/2017
The authors presented an overview of the use of wearable systems to evaluate Freezing of gait (FOG) and falls in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and validation performance. They were all performed in relatively small sample sizes, and there was a significant variability in outcomes measured and results reported despite the promising validation initiatives reported in these studies. Given these limitations, the validation of sensor–derived assessments of PD features would benefit from more focused research efforts, increased collaboration among researchers, aligning data collection protocols, and sharing data sets.
