Researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) extend an invitation for you to take part in a research project.
We are investigating how physiotherapy can be directed at the biological underpinnings of movement to improve recovery after stroke. These biological underpinnings are called neuromuscular function. Neuromuscular function includes: the ability to use weak muscles in the right order and at the right time during movement and performing everyday tasks such as answering the telephone in the same way as you did before the stroke. Also being investigated is whether sleep patterns may influence recovery of neuromuscular function
We are also developing measures of the movement needed for the everyday activity of answering the telephone. Our purpose is to provide new measures for finding out how the brain recovers after stroke and how physiotherapy may be focused at the biological underpinnings of movement recovery after stroke.
You do not have to take part if you do not want to.
Talk about the project with others if you would like to.
If you need more information, please ask the researcher, Valerie Pomeroy at UEA. Or get in touch with her personal assistant: Pel Fordham. Both of them will be happy to answer your questions. Their contact information is at the bottom of this page.
Thank you for reading this information and for considering taking part in this project.
