Exercises for Stroke Patients


Cognitive rehabilitation is crucial for recovery after stroke. Therefore, here we provide you with some exercises for stroke patients , perfect for rehabilitation professionals to work with stroke victims.

Exercises for stroke Patients

As explained in a prior post, depending on the sequelae of stroke, patients will undergo cognitive rehabilitation or other therapies, something that will be always determined by a neuropsychologist or an occupational therapist.

To this end, we recommend 15 stroke rehab exercises designed by NeuronUP:

3. Organize the Bookcase

This activity involves copying the position of the objects placed in the bookcase just like in the model. Copying them requires a great deal of concentration because the bookcase is in the mirror so the model must be copied in reverse order.

This exercise is designed for training sustained attention and selective attention, as well as hemineglect, spatial relations, and processing speed.

The model is on the right side and the bookcase is on the left. Would your stroke patients know how to organize it correctly?

    Yo sufrí un infiero cerebral y ya he trabajado
    Con todos los ejemplos que se muestran y en
    Ninguno tengo dificultades, todos lo he resuelto
    De forma favorable.
    A mí la única secuela que me dejó es;
    Tartamudeo, (más cuando trato de discutir) o cuando me contradicen, sin razón;
    Se me olvidan tareas que tengo que hacer, Ejem:
    Organizó mi día por orden de prioridad (cuatro ó cinco cosas por hacer) y si no las escribo, no las recuerdo, se me olvidan por lo menos dos de cinco. Si hay algo que pueda funcionar para mí, agradecería su valiosa ayuda.
    NOTA: ya estoy llenado a terapias con un psicólogo, pero este me pone a hacer puertos crucigramas y pienso que esto no me ayuda, pues los resuelvo sin problemas, lo que tengo es lo tartamudo, ya que si anoto co papel y lapos mis tareas no tengo dificultades, por su atención gracias.
    En espera de una respuesta favorable, proporcionó los Sifuentes datos para un enlace.
