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.

Treadmill training with Thera-Band improves motor function, gait and balance in stroke patients

Anything that keeps the toes from catching would help walking, so this research is pretty damned worthless.

Abstract: Study evaluated the effects of treadmill training with Thera-Band on motor function, gait, and balance abilities in patients with stroke. Thera-Band is a walking aid alternative to an ankle-foot orthosis that supports dorsiflexion during gait using the elasticity of rubber. Thirty participants with hemiparetic stroke were randomly divided into two groups: the experimental group and the control group. Participants in both groups received conventional physical therapy for 30 minutes before the intervention. Additionally, subject in the experimental group performed treadmill training with Thera-Band for 30 minutes, five times a week for four weeks, while the control group conducted treadmill training only for the same amount of time. The Fugl-Meyer assessment (FMA) was used to measure motor function. The Timed-up and Go (TUG), 10-Meter Walk Test (10MWT), and Performance-Oriented Mobility Assessment (POMA) were used to evaluate balance and gait abilities. After training, there were significant improvements in both groups in FMA, TUG, 10MWT and Gait POMA; these changes were more significant in the experimental group than the control group. However, there was no significant difference within group and between the groups in the Balance POMA. Findings indicate that treadmill training with Thera-Band is beneficial and effective to improve motor function of the lower extremities, gait, and balance ability in stroke patients.
