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.

Effect of Exercises Using a Robotic Knee Orthosis (RKO) on Hemiplegic Stroke Patients

No idea what a RKO is or looks like or what disability requirements would suggest its use. So ask your doctor.  Once again pointing out the complete failure of having NO diagnosis stroke protocols that point to rehabilitation intervention stroke protocols.  You are fucking screwed since your doctor and therapists are 'winging it' for everything related to stroke and your recovery.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a Robotic Knee Orthosis (RKO) exercise on stroke patients with hemiplegia, using an ABA-type single case study. Participants were 5 hemiplegic stroke patients in a recovery rehabilitation unit. The ABA design consisted of Phase A (normal exercise) and phase B (RKO exercise). This study was performed for 30 days with 10 days of each phase. The evaluation items were transfer and gait abilities, degree of hemiplegia, sensory dysfunction, the Berg Balance Scale, stride length, step length, and the time of one-leg support. The items were evaluated 4 times: before A1, after A1, after B, and after A2. The 10-meter gait time was evaluated 5 times in each phase, for a total of 15 times. The results were compared using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). The Berg Balance Scale, stride length, step length, one-leg support time, and the 10-meter gait time improved in phase B. These results suggest the RKO exercise is effective for stroke patients.
