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.

Designing Two-player Competitive Games for the Rehabilitation of Upper-Limb Motor Function after Stroke

I think one person games are better, no partner needed, you can go as long as you want.

This paper outlines the design and preliminary user testing of a two-player competitive game system for the training of post-stroke upper limb motor functions. The system consists of two tangible gaming boards (with 64 RGB rotary encoders on each) that support the training of shoulder reaching functions and fine motor skills. Two games were developed and tested on ten stroke survivors. System usability and player motivation were measured by questionnaire. The preliminary results indicated the system is easy to use. Participants perceived a high level of enjoyment with the game. The challenges, design strategies and future directions are also discussed.
