In the March issue of Topics in Stroke Rehabilitation http://bit.ly/h03MW7 Dr. Gregory and his team from Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the Department of Neurology, School of Medicine, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina USA compare patient preferences for Stroke Rehabilitation. The group conclude that patients prefer the initial rehabilitation therapy setting to be at home. Providers should inquire about patient preference and provide information about treatment options to help inform decision making.
The group also state that early aggressive rehabilitation therapies maximize functional recovery.
The HandTutor, ArmTutor and LegTutor systems are physical therapy products that provide the patient with user friendly upper and lower extremity dedicated rehabilitation devices that allow for intensive exercise practice and maximize functional recovery both in acute, sub acute, outpatient and home care settings and allows occupational and physical therapists to provide the optimum dose of customized rehabilitation exercsie practice. Customized exercise practice at the optimum intensity can improve functional movement outcome.
