Be Aware of Stroke Symptoms for Women

Women suffer strokes at a rate that sometimes exceeds that of men. They should be aware of unique symptoms such as:
sudden face and limb pain
sudden hiccups
sudden nausea
sudden general weakness
sudden chest pain
If any of these occur emergency services should be contacted immediately. There is only a limited amount of time (a 3 hour window of opportunity after the first signs) to get proper medical care There is a special clot reducing medication that can reduce long term disability if administered on time.
Use the F.A.S.T. method.
F—FACE: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
A—ARMS: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
S—SPEECH: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?
T—TIME: If you observe any of these signs, call 9-1-1 or emergency services  immediately.
When the patient has recovered sufficiently from the initial effects of the stroke and now needs to undertake physical rehabilitation solutions
to repair any residual disability of a limb one of the newest medical tools available is the TUTOR system. Consisting of the HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR these devices improve fine motor, sensory and cognitive impairments through intensive active exercises with augmented feedback.
Now in use in leading U.S. and European hospitals the TUTOR system is certified by the FDA and CE. See WWW.HANDTUTOR.COM for more information.
