Translating Innovations in Stroke Rehabilitation to Improve Recovery and Quality of Life Across the Globe

About this Research Topic

Stroke is a leading cause of neurological disability worldwide. Advances in acute care including chemical and mechanical recanalization in ischemic stroke is gradually improving survival. However, the majority of stroke patients live with motor, speech, cognitive and other disabilities. New knowledge in neuroplasticity, neuro-regeneration and stem cell science can be explored to improve recovery. The emerging fields of brain computer interfaces, robotics, and neuro-stimulation promise new approaches. The current challenge is translation of these budding opportunities and existing evidence-based interventions into pragmatic and cost-effective solutions in various settings. This is crucial, bearing in mind that over 80 percent of people living with stroke-related disabilities reside in low and middle income settings.
This Research Topic of Frontiers in Neurology will highlight key advances and evidence-based innovations in stroke rehabilitation; explore how they can be improved upon with new research and harnessed for deployment across the globe to improve the wellbeing of stroke survivors everywhere. This open access publication will be available to healthcare providers across the globe thereby empowering them to improve the quality of life of stroke survivors globally.
This Research Topic is based on the joint session of the American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association and the World Federation for Neurorehabilitation at the 2018 International Stroke Conference. Nevertheless, this call for papers is being made for additional high quality submissions across the globe under the following themes:

• Neuroplasticity and Neural repair in stroke recovery;
• Neurostimulation, Neuroimplants, Brain computer interface, Robotics and stroke recovery;
• Pragmatic solutions for stroke recovery and improved quality of life in low and middle income settings (adaptations and innovations);
• Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Research: Priorities, Prospects, and Funding opportunities ;
• Post-Acute Level of Care Selection: Developing Stroke Rehabilitation Guidelines for LMIC settings


Keywords: Stroke, rehabilitation, neurorehabilitation, stroke recovery, neuroplasticity, robotics, low and middle income countries


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
