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.
My back ground story is here:

Estimation of 1 Repetition Maximum of the Non-paretic Knee Extension Strength of Hemiplegic Stroke Patients

I can see no use for this is getting patients to 100% recovery.

Abstract: This study sought to determine the regression equation for estimating 1 repetition maximum (1RM) of knee extension on the non-paretic side in hemiplegia. The knee extension strengths on the non-paretic side of 37 patients with hemiplegia after stroke were measured using a hand-held dynamometer (HHD). The associations between 1RM and maximal muscle strength, age, gender, body mass index, time since the onset of stroke, the Brunnstrom recovery stage of the lower extremities, functional independence measure of gait function, and associative reaction in hemiplegia were assessed using multivariate analysis. The analysis resulted in the following regression equations: 1RM=0.157 × knee extension strength + 2.183 (R2=0.549), and 1RM=0.385 × peak torque of knee extension + 2.795 (R2=0.583). These results show that the 1RM of knee extension on the non-paretic side of hemiplegic stroke patients can be estimated from the knee extension strength measured by a HHD.
