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.

DLSU student develops robotic arm for stroke rehab

A student doing more useful work for survivors than the hundreds/thousands of employees of our fucking failures of stroke associations. Hire your student today.
DLSU student develops robotic arm for stroke rehab 
An engineering student from De La Salle University (DLSU) has developed a wearable robotic arm that can be used in the therapy of stroke and accident victims.
Paul Dominique Baniqued told ANC's Future Perfect Tech Shorts that he saw the need for a bio-robotic device while visiting hospitals during his stint selling lab equipment.
He saw long lines of patients waiting for therapists and thought that he could come up with a way to help these patients.
Baniqued said he was also inspired by science fiction movies like Iron Man and Elysium which featured high-tech exoskeletons.
"For my research, I would like something that helps people and at the same time at least be cool to show," Baniqued said.
He is one of 25 Filipinos who received grants from the British Council's Newton Agham Programme, which aims to develop science and innovation in the Philippines.
Baniqued will pursue advanced studies in the United Kingdom where he hopes to further develop his expertise in bio-robotics.
