When a stroke affects the brain, timing is critical for regaining the lost abilities and self-sufficiency. The sooner a patient gets stroke rehabilitation therapy, the better the chances they can perform certain tasks and reclaim their quality of life.
Although some people may recover quickly, recovering from a stroke can be a long and frustrating experience. Dedication and willingness to work toward improvement will help you achieve your goals. The sooner you begin stroke rehabilitation, the more likely lost abilities and skills can be regained. The duration of your stroke rehabilitation depends on the severity of the injury and post-stroke complications.
In recent years, robotic rehabilitation has radically improved the conditions of adults and children with neurological or musculoskeletal impairments. Robotic rehabilitation promises to help in building patient independence and also helps in controlling expenses while refining patients’ quality of life.
Robotic-assisted arm training devices are integrated with virtual reality to rehabilitate hand function. When the patient is ready for lower limb rehabilitation training, walking with virtual reality-integrated walking robots is started rapidly.
You’ll be encouraged to participate in the rehabilitation program actively. A team of different specialists may help with your rehabilitation, including physicians, neurologists, rehabilitation nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists, and dietitians.
