Description

EXPERT VERDICT: ‘One of the most demoralising things for stroke patients is when they come to the end of their therapy and are discharged from hospital,’ says Pippa Tyrrell, a professor of stroke medicine at the University of Manchester. ‘It’s demeaning to use “toys” if you are an adult. A device like this allows for repetitive, but intriguing, training and sets a challenge — it can only help.’
