Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that 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:
My blog is not to help survivors recover, it is to have the 10 million yearly stroke survivors light fires underneath their doctors, stroke hospitals and stroke researchers to get stroke solved. 100% recovery. The stroke medical world is completely failing at that goal, they don't even have it as a goal. 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 lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

This squishy robot mimics how our muscles move
With ANY innovation at all we could ask our researchers to build these soft muscles to help in recovering movement. But we have NO innovation in stroke at all. Everyone is just sitting on their ass WAITING FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. You are screwed along with your children and grandchildren.
Scientists working on soft robotics have created a new kind of artificial muscle that mimics how our own muscles expand and contract. They're made a flexible materials and liquids that shift their shape in response to electricity. Depending on how scientists designed the devices, they were able to make the robots flex a mechanical arm, lift a gallon of water, and even pick up delicate objects without squishing them, like the raspberry shown here. University of Colorado mechanical engineer Shane Mitchell, who works on the devices, tells me they could one day be used to assist people with limited mobility or to develop prostheses that more closely mirror the properties and functions of human tissue.
