  1. Sorry, but Im not agreed with the video. Walking upstair for a stroke patient is : step up with the non-affected leg, and step down with the affected one. Another issue: it has be done step by step.


  3. i am amazed at how much physical therapy one receives in other countries. not in f-ing trinidad! i suffered 2 strokes in 2012 and i am still the same way! free therapist, don't know [email protected] and those you have to pay for are not affordable!

  4. How can my mother get a hospital service like this in Indonesia?, this very good to have a professional therapist for stroke.

  5. …Another idiot "Physical Therapist" NOT using a Gait belt…ESPECIALLY on those cement steps…OUCH !!!

  6. … glad he made it out in one piece he has 50 pounds on the physical therapist and I’m sure she is not super woman… There are very wide gait belts available with large loops on them and it doesn’t take long to attach a gait belt
    Invest in one as your own personal equipment…
    No excuse for not using one…

  7. To those people getting mad about the gait belt situation: use your common sense!.Not all patients require a damn belt..Ofcourse if your patient is a fall risk, then use you clinical judgement and use one!.And some areas (US), consider it as a restraint..In this video, the therapist clearly knows her patient well and understands the risks..

  8. Daddy had a stroke 5 years ago. He slept in the hospital for 10 days. Then he was put in rehab. When he was only 55 years old, he was put in an old people's home and all the residents there were so much older than him. 55 years old is pretty young. Daddy is almost 60 years old now. Mommy has to work hard every day to take care of Daddy. Sometimes me and my 6 little brothers help her with taking care of him. When Daddy had a stroke, me and everybody in my big family and our friends prayed for him to get better. And now he can walk, but he has to use a cane and a wheelchair and he can talk, but his favorite word is change. And Mommy always calls him dude. Daddy needs lots of therapy like speech therapy and physical therapy. Sometimes, the boys take him out for walks when it's nice out. And sometimes, Daddy's friends from his work come to the house. Like when I told my little brothers to take Daddy for a walk outside, they were sleeping. All of them were sleeping.
