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 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.

Effects of a 6-week aquatic treadmill exercise program on cardiorespiratory fitness and walking endurance in subacute stroke patients: A pilot trial

A simple question. What fucking treadmill protocol should be used? Not knowing the answer is not acceptable.
  1. displayed foot placements on the treadmill

  2.  Stroke Rehabilitation and the AlterG - Anti-gravity treadmill

  3.  The treadmill bike!?

  4.  air pressure treadmill

  5.  Turning-Based Treadmill

  6.  Air pressure treadmill instantly sheds 80% of your weight

  7.  underwater treadmill

  8.  Split Belt Treadmill 

  9.  rotating treadmill

Researchers performed this preliminary study to evaluate the feasibility as well as the safety of a 6-week course of water walking performed using a motorized aquatic treadmill in people with subacute stroke for cardiorespiratory fitness, walking endurance, and activities of daily living. For this investigation, 20 subacute stroke patients were randomly assigned to aquatic treadmill exercise (ATE) or land-based exercise (LBE). In patients with subacute stroke, a 6-week ATE program improved peak aerobic capacity and walking endurance. Findings revealed that the improvement in V·o2peak after an ATE exercise program was greater than that observed after an LBE program. In patients with subacute stroke, ATE effectively improves cardiopulmonary fitness.(But do they walk better? That should have been the objective.)
