Products and techniques to optimize post-stroke rehabilitation for COVID and beyond.
Stroke was already a leading cause of serious long-term disability when the COVID-19 pandemic began. People of all ages who contract COVID-19 are at higher risk for stroke, making an experiencing stroke and needing rehabilitation to recover from it now all the more likely for the wider population.
No post-stroke patient is the same, so a one-size-fits-all approach will never work. Thankfully, post-stroke rehabilitation technology is varied and expansive. Now is a good time to take a closer look at the ways you can incorporate effective tools and techniques into your practice to evaluate and treat post-stroke patients to meet their individual needs. This resource includes information about external feedback, walkways, and treadmills for gait analysis to help patients recover their ability to walk, exoskeletons and other robotic assistance, and multi-disciplinary teams collaborating to enhance care for outpatient treatment.
