Strokes occur when a blood clot disperses in the brain and it can leave the individual with a number of symptoms. These can include a face that has dropped on one side, lack of movement on one side of the body and either slurred speech or lack of speech. These effects can pass over time and after treatment for the stroke, but some of the mobility issues can remain.
These mobility issues can include joints that have become stiff and hard to move. Physiotherapy can help make it possible to gain movement back in the joints. Some people notice that their hands seem to stick in one position and they have to manually open their fingers.
In other cases it is walking that is affected. One of the most common signs is that people find it difficult to pick their feet up when they walk. They instead shuffle. This can make mobility difficult and there may be the need for mobility equipment to help them stay as mobile as possible.
WAV Vehicles such as the ones from clarkemobility.com/allow people to be independent in driving themselves to locations and to be passengers in care, regardless of whether they need to be in a wheelchair. This can help support those who are recovering from a stroke and finding out if they have any limitations in their mobility.
