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.

Spatial analysis of muscular activations in stroke survivors

I don't see how this helps us get to 100% recovery.

Abstract: Study investigated the spatial patterns of electrical activity in stroke-affected muscles using the high density surface electromyogram (sEMG) grids. sEMG signals were acquired from the impaired as well as contralateral biceps brachii muscles of stroke survivors and from healthy participants at various force levels from 20 to 60 percent of maximum voluntary contraction in an isometric non-fatiguing recording protocol. The spatial sEMG pattern was found to be consistent across force levels in healthy and stroke subjects. However, once compared across sides (left vs right in healthy and impaired vs. contralateral in stroke), the stroke-affected sides were found to be significantly different in distribution pattern of sEMG from the contralateral side. The sEMG activity areas were significantly shrunk on the affected sides indicating muscle atrophy due to stroke.
