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.

The effects of treadmill walking combined with obstacle-crossing on walking ability in ambulatory patients after stroke: A pilot randomized controlled trial

I bet the obstacles covered here don't include stepping over 18 inch high trees, in mud, in water, in snow, on ice? If not, they are missing real life training.

Abstract: Study investigated the effects of treadmill walking combined with obstacle-crossing on the walking ability of ambulatory post-stroke patients. Twenty-nine subjects from a university hospital-based rehabilitation center were randomly assigned to one of the following: experimental group (15 subjects) or control group (14 subjects). All subjects underwent 30 minutes of active/passive exercises and 30 minutes of gait training in the form of treadmill walking. The subjects in the experimental group underwent simultaneous training in obstacle-crossing while walking on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week, for 4 weeks. Main measures were the 10-Meter Walk Test (10MWT), 6-Minute Walk Test (6MWT), Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Timed Up and Go (TUG) test, and Activities-specific Balance Confidence (ABC) scale used before and after the intervention. The changed values of the 6MWT and BBS were significantly higher in the experimental group than in the control group after adjusting for each baseline value, with large effects of 1.12 and 0.78, respectively, but not in the 10MWT, TUG, and ABC scale scores. Both groups showed a significant difference in all variables before and after the intervention. Treadmill walking combined with obstacle-crossing training may help improve the walking ability of patients with hemiplegic stroke and can possibly be used as an adjunct to routine rehabilitation therapy as a task-oriented practice based on community ambulation.
