Stroke rehabilitation in the United States

Abstract

I have attempted to present you with many of the ways that in the United States we are addressing the issue of motor deficits in stroke survivors. Many of these techniques show promise. However, there is much work to be done in order to determine which techniques may be the most effective for certain patients. It is also need to figure out the timing of many of these techniques in order to maximize their benefit. As this last slide shows, stroke survivors need to be "involved with their own rescue." Without their motivation and practice, stroke survivors will never reach their maximal functional capacity. With new techniques and technologies, rehabilitation professionals can provide stroke survivors with the means to intensify their therapies to facilitate functional recovery, reorganize the brain and return them to a fulfilling quality of life.
