CPSR- funded Reactive Balance Toolkit: Many people, like older adults and individuals with stroke, are increased risk for falls. In order to keep from falling down, people must often perform rapid and sophisticated reactions, like stepping or grasping movements. Reactive balance training (RBT) retrains these rapid reactions. RBT has been shown to improve control of rapid balance reactions and reduce fall rates by almost half compared to no exercise or ‘typical’ balance training. The aim of this toolkit is to help healthcare professionals (e.g., physiotherapists or kinesiologists) use RBT in their rehabilitation practices. https://kite-uhn.com/tools/rebal

Canadian experts have produced the first set of recommendations on repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) as an adjunct treatment to standard rehabilitation in clinical trials to help restore hand and arm use after stroke. The recommendations are in the latest issue of the journal Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair.

Used in combination with physical therapy, TMS is a safe, noninvasive method to prime the brain by delivering short magnetic pulses on the outside of the skull. Repetitive TMS (rTMS) has the potential to enhance recovery and reduce the amount of standard therapy required to regain use of a stroke-affected limb.

The first day of the CPSR's first Annual Scientific Meeting on Wed., Dec. 2 was a huge success with almost 400 registrants and another 600 who joined a joint webinar on virtual rehabilitation, developed in partnership with Heart & Stroke and embedded in the meeting. Other highlights on Day 1 included a presentation on brain stimulation for stroke recovery by Prof Charlotte Stagg of Oxford University in the UK, a coffeehouse/workshop on virtual care with Patrice Lindsay, PhD, of Heart & Stroke and Dr. Anita Mountain of Dalhousie University, and a presentation on 3-D kinematics featuring Dr. Ahmet Arac of UCLA. The day concluded with a really neat interactive poster session.

Today's meeting begins at 12:30 pm EST. Brad MacIntosh, PhD, of Sunnybrook will kick things off as he hosts a session on COVID projects. The day continues with workshops and breakout groups, CPSR project updates, and another interactive poster session.

Heart & Stroke

In our new series, Beat as One with Us, we're sharing the stories of people from our community who have been touched by our cause. It highlights and reveals the reality, the progress, the triumph, and the fight that people in our community experience every day.

In our first story below, meet Saj, he's working to #BeatStroke. He experienced a stroke at the age of 27 from a carotid artery dissection after a header during a soccer game:

“At the time, I didn’t know I was having a stroke. I wasn’t familiar with the details of what a stroke was. After doing a header at a soccer game, I was with some friends two hours later at a board game night. It was my turn while playing Taboo and suddenly, I felt a weakness in my left leg. I sat down shortly after. Something didn’t feel right. After attempting to call my family, my left hand went weak and I dropped my phone. My friends freaked out when they noticed my face drooping. My friend called 9-1-1, but I passed out on the way to the hospital from the pain I was in. I had to go through a decompression craniotomy to relieve the pressure that was building up in my head. My left side was paralyzed.

Today, I function with only one hand and walking isn’t completely second nature to me. I have also lost vision in my left eye. I still require some assistance when getting dressed, like buttoning up shirts or tying my laces – I’d consider myself 75% recovered. Second chances do not come often, I’m working to be better than what I would have been before my stroke.”

Stay tuned for more Beat as One with Us stories coming soon, and learn how you can join Saj and us to Beat as One here: https://bit.ly/2JaO4vD #HeartandStrokeBeatAsOne

Kia Ora from New Zealand. In February 2017 my wife, then aged 52 suffered a massive (the neurosurgeon’s word) stroke. As she lay in ICU I ‘hacked’ her page to keep friends and overseas family informed. As she slowly recovered they told me the posts were so inspiring they should be more widely read. So I transcribed them into a blog…and kept writing. So far bluebananablog.com has had over 70,000 views from more than 100 countries and has informed, educated and inspired stroke survivors, their families and carers and health professionals around the world.

Kia ora from New Zealand!. Thank you for the response to my previous post. Here's my latest blog update on Amanda's continuing stroke recovery.
In February 2017 my wife suffered a massive stroke at age 52. As she lay fighting in the ICU, I 'hacked' her page to keep friends and overseas relatives informed of her progress. As she slowly recovered they told me the posts were so inspirational they should be more widely read. So I transcribed them into a blog... and kept writing. So far bluebananablog.com has had nearly 28,000 views from more than 80 countries and has been featured by both the American and Australian Aphasia Associations.
