SAHP research presented at UK Stroke Forum 2018
Dr Sue Hunter, Deputy Head of School and Lecturer Alison Aries from SAHP recently presented their research at the UK Stroke Forum at the Telford International Centre.
Sue presented systematic reviews on: Somatosensory stimulation to improve upper limb function after stroke; active music-making to improve mood and function in stroke survivors; and, in conjunction with Stacey Weaver, a local rehabilitation assistant, a review of dance exercise as therapy for stroke.
Alison Aries presented the findings of her NIHR Fellowship-funded feasibility study – the MoTaStim-Foot trial of sensory stimulation of the foot to improve balance and gait in sub-acute stroke. Alison’s presentation was supported by Mr Paul Bailey, PPIE representative on the trial.
The 3 day multidisciplinary conference brought together over 110 expert speakers and researchers, all committed to improving stroke care and was hosted by the Stroke Association and the British Association of Stroke Physicians.
