topic: Muscle Spasms

My mom had a stroke 8 months ago that left her with left side paralysis. She is on baclofen three times a day for muscle spasms. Even with therapy she is not improving with her paralysis - muscle spasms are increasing at night when she tries to relax in bed - is there ANY medication that can help her or it's just part of the process with the muscle spasms?

topic: Stroke Survivors-How does stroke rehab benefit fro

Power Assistant Stimulation (PAS) provides continuous electrical pulses once the patient contracts the muscles as much strength as the preset threshold, and supplements the potential muscles strength to achieve maximum muscle contractions with the real-time adjusted stimulation according to the sEMG signals. XFT H1 Hand Rehab System adopts such innovative technology to help stroke patients with their hand problems. Check here: link

topic: Stroke Rehabilitation Application

Hello I am a final year software design student looking to collect information for my thesis. I am designing an application that is used to assist stroke survivors with their recovery using at home motion control. I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to complete the survey. The survey is 100% anonymous and you answers could help provide vital information for the applications effectiveness. I really appreciate you taking the time to read this.

topic: quad stick vs normal stick

In my experience, it is better to progress to a single point stick if you can....I had my stroke in April 2016 and was using a quad stick by 3 months, therapists helped me move onto a single point stick in another 2 months... It felt odd in the beginning but Im now walking without my stick indoors and hope to get rid of the stick all together before the end of the year... A single point stick will challenge your balance more, this is likely to result in better quality walking over time pamelai1 wrote:
I currently walk with a quad stick. I'm slow and steady. I'd like to be faster at walking so have decided to work on this with the quad stick rather than mastering normal stick now. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether this is the right thing to do????

topic: New stroke survivor's blog


Been a long time lurker and a shambler for a couple of years. Thanks to you all for your ongoing and unknowing, but very much appreciated help over these grim months.

I've started my a stroke survivors blog based on what I would have wanted to have known back in the day. It's a bit sweary and frank, but (I hope) honest and well-intentioned and if it can be of help to anyone then so much the better. Your feedback would be fantastic. It's very early days, and very rough, but a start.


Thanks again,

Stephen Taylor

Hello Stroked
Interestingly I wrote this on the forum 27th December 2014

"Dear administrator

This used to be a good forum but as you dont seem to be able to maintain it now I think you should discontinue it. I replied to a person some days ago who was obviously distressed and having had a similar experience i replied to him. The reply has not appeared yet but i noticed he has gone to another forum for help. This has happened a few times in the past and also I keep getting emails to inform me someone has replied to a topic which i may have contributed to. Some of the listings that appear on the forum are sometimes over a year old and unfortunately because people dont always look at the date reply to them.
Thanks for setting the forum up and it has been helpful in the past.
