How a new tool helps rehabilitate stroke victims

A stroke victimizes an American every 40 seconds. For many, a stroke will cause patients to lose abilities and independence. Rehabilitation can make a big difference, but it involves repetitive, arduous tasks proving difficult for patients to stick with. A new stroke rehabilitation instrument aims to help address this problem.

The MusicGlove incorporates music into rehabilitation for fine motor skills lost to a stroke. The glove is worn by the patient, who grabs and pinches notes appearing on the screen of a tablet. The MusicGlove helps provide motivation to the patient, while stimulating his or her visual and auditory senses, too.

While tech-based rehabilitation is already used across the country, it often takes place only at rehab clinics because of prohibitive cost. MusicGlove has taken advantage of evolving technology to make its product affordable for patients to use in their own homes.

Rehabilitation is important but a timely diagnosis is crucial

It is great that inventions like MusicGlove are becoming available to stroke patients, but their value is limited if the patient's stroke goes undiagnosed or is not diagnosed in a timely fashion.

Each year, far too many patients present themselves to hospitals but are sent home without treatment after the doctor fails to diagnose them with a stroke. The medical community has stereotyped the types of patients who have strokes; if you are relatively young than you face a significantly higher chance of stroke misdiagnosis.

If you believe that a delayed or missed diagnosis has affected you or a family member, speak with an experienced attorney to discuss your legal options.
