StandingTall-Rehab: Co-designing a comprehensive digital rehabilitation program for enhanced patient management and rehabilitation outcomes.

We need your help to improve the care for patients recovering from stroke.

About the trial

NeuRA are developing a comprehensive digital-rehabilitation program that integrates a tailored high-dose exercise program with usual care for patients recovering from stroke. The program will improve physical mobility and target balance, strength and functional tasks that show promise in improving health-related quality-of-life and independence in patients recovering from stroke.
