topic: STROKE SURVIVORS AND STROKE CAREGIVERS NEEDED

I am a graduate student conducting research for a graduate level course. I am looking for stroke survivors, and stroke caregivers to take a survey. This survey will only take 5 minutes, and it is entirely anonymous and confidential. This survey will not be used for publication or anything for that matter, it will only be used to help stroke survivors, and stroke caregivers. Please take this survey or pass it along to someone you know:

Thank you!

If you had a stroke, or you know a caregiver of a stroke survivor, please take this completely anonymous survey. This survey will not be used for publication, or anything for that matter, it will solely help those who know someone that had a stroke, and stroke survivors experiencing depression.

topic: STROKE SURVIVORS NEEDED FOR PSYCHOLOGY STUDY

Hello everyone,
?I am recruiting participants for my Psychology undergraduate dissertation and I will be investigating whether stroke survivors’ personality has had any effects on the way they engaged with post-stroke rehabilitation programmes. Levels and quality of engagement with rehabilitation could also affect overall recovery and quality of life after stroke. In the questionnaire, you will be asked questions about yourself, your stroke, your health and your personality. The survey should last approximately 30 minutes and your answers will be much appreciated.
Click on the link below to access the survey.

topic: Stroke Rehabilitation University Design Project

Hello all,

I am a final year Product Design student and as part of my final University projects I have chosen to develop an aid to help stroke rehabilitation and everyday living thereafter.

I am looking to provide a new and innovative solution to stroke rehabilitation – This may be a high tech solution incorporating new technologies such as virtual reality, ultra haptic’s and robotics or it may take a low tech approach to produce a cheap, accessible solution for users to have at home to maximise on rehabilitation repetition.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could answer some quick questions to help with some vital research to allow me to fully understand the problems at hand.

These questions can be answered by anyone – a stroke victim, carer, family member, nurse etc.

1. What problems do you encounter?

2. Are there times that you feel good about yourself? – E.g succeeded in a recent rehabilitation goal?

3. Are there times when you feel bad about yourself?

4. Please send me a picture/or web link to a product that you use and state one good point and one bad point about it – This can be something from your rehabilitation or everyday life.


I hope you can find the time to answer these questions and hopefully the project will be of use to you or your loved ones – I will keep you all updated on progress etc The idea will be exhibited in July 2017 at the New Designers show in London.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to know more: benmpickard@aol.com

Many thanks,

Ben

Is anyone in this forum using the Saeboflex (Saebo-flex) or have they used it. If so, could we start a thread on members' experiences with it?

topic: UK stroke care

Hi
I am curious about people thought of the long term stroke care in the UK. My uncle was on the acute stroke rehab ward and has just been discharged. He has recovered fairly well but still has a weak right arm and leg. What do think of rehab services provided by the NHS? Will he get enough physiotherapy? I would really appreciate your opinions on this matter.

topic: Sub-arachnoid Hemorrhage and post surgery vomiting

My mom (56yrs) had a SAH stroke on 12th Sept. The week before that she had a couple of vomitings and started having headaches which didnt go away till the stroke actually occurred.

At the hospital, we found that she had multiple ruptures in one of the arteries supplying blood to the little brain. The docs did an endovasular coiling surgery to close off that artery as they said the other artery was wide enough to handle the blood requirement of the brain. After that they did an EVD to the brain too to drain out excess blood filled cerebro-spinal fluid. Thankfully during all this process, she showed remarkable progress and the docs shifted her out of the ICU in 2 weeks and out of the hospital in 3 weeks. So she is at home with me now.

But, since last night, she has had 2 vomitings. One yesterday evening and another one a couple hours ago. She also says she has a slight headache. I am very scared and confused. Are these vomitings because of something serious or just a result of nausea due to her long list of meds she is on (include anti-seizure, anti-inflammatory, paracetamol etc). Combined with i feel i may have made her to eat a bit more than she can take (I was worried she needs strength to cope with those strong meds).

All other things with her are fine in the sense that her memory is perfect, she can think, laugh, show affection etc. She can get up on her own, but can;t walk as her legs are a bit weak.

Can anyone tell me if vomitings are a common occurrence during post-stroke recovery?
