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.

Is there influence of the load addition during treadmill training on cardiovascular parameters and gait performance in patients with stroke? A randomized clinical trial

I could never do the body weight supported treadmill training, I needed my full weight when walking to counteract my spasticity. Loaded walking would probably have helped even more.

Abstract: Study evaluated whether there is influence of load addition on the non-paretic lower limb (NPLL) during treadmill training on cardiovascular parameters and gait performance of subacute stroke patients. Thirty-eight stroke subjects with gait deficits were randomized into an experimental group, which underwent treadmill training with a mass attached on NPLL, or control group, which underwent only treadmill training. Interventions lasted 2 weeks (9 sessions). Main outcomes were heart rate, arterial blood pressure, gait speed, and distance covered. Assessments occurred at rest, at the 10th and 20th minute of the training session, and immediately after each session. There was improvement in speed and walking distance in both groups. All cardiovascular parameters had showed no changes compared to 1st and 9th sessions and there were no differences between groups within each session. Treadmill gait training with load addition on NPLL did not alter cardiovascular parameters and improved gait performance in patients with subacute stroke which indicates this therapy can be considered useful and safe for these patients.
