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.

The Bright Arm Duo is a low-friction robotic rehabilitation table that adaptably trains dual arm movement and grasp through interaction with serious games. In early sub-acute phase post-stroke, N=3


experimental group received conventional rehabilitation plus 12 BrightArm Duo sessions, each inducing up to 600 arm and hand repetitions. N=9

control group received conventional rehabilitation only. Improvement for the experimental group was better than controls across 11 of 12 functional metrics and activities of daily living (p=0.006)
