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.

Virtual reality therapy using the Leap Motion Controller for post-stroke upper limb rehabilitation

Useless research, it tells us nothing about the results obtained.

Virtual reality therapy using the Leap Motion Controller for post-stroke upper limb rehabilitation

ABSTRACT
AIMS: To evaluate the applicability of a virtual reality-based motion sensor for post-stroke upper limb rehabilitation.
CASES DESCRIPTION: Three post-stroke patients were subjected to virtual reality training for rehabilitation of their upper limbs using the Leap Motion Controller technology and the game Playground 3D
®
for 3 consecutive days. On the first and last days, the Box and Blocks test, the De Melo Eye-Hand Coordination Test, and transcranial magnetic stimulation were applied. On the last day, the patients were evaluated with
the Experience Evaluation Form. After the proposed training, a lower motor threshold was observed in both cerebral hemispheres, as well as better performance in the tests that evaluated hand and eye-hand coordination skills. The proposed therapy was well received by the patients.
CONCLUSIONS: No adverse effects were observed, and promising and precise results were obtained for the virtual reality-based training using the Leap Motion Controller and Playground 3D
®
. The training allowed patients to have an active role in the rehabilitation of stroke-induced upper limb sequelae
