We’ve flagged this talk because it falls outside the content guidelines TED gives TEDx organizers. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/t…

The processes by which the brain can learn new information, or recover after injury, are known as neuroplasticity. In this presentation, we reveal actual applications using our latest understandings of exactly how to maximize neuroplasticity for people recovering from stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, concussion, and more! Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST is a physical therapist certified as a neurological clinical specialist. He has been a PT for nearly 30 years, conducting research, writing papers and book chapters on topics ranging from stroke rehabilitation, cognition, Parkinson’s Disease, dual tasking, and much more.

[VIDEO] Best Stroke Recovery Hand Exercises – Stretches For Hand Spasticity – YouTube

For more information on treating spasticity, visit https://www.saebo.com/blog/treat-spas… Saebo, Inc. is a medical device company primarily engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of affordable and novel clinical solutions designed to improve mobility and function in individuals suffering from neurological and orthopedic conditions. With a vast network of Saebo-trained clinicians spanning six continents, Saebo has helped over 100,000 clients around the globe achieve a new level of independence. In 2001, two occupational therapists had one simple, but powerful goal – to provide neurological clients access to transformative and life changing products. At the time, treatment options for improving arm and hand function were limited. The technology that did exist was expensive and inaccessible for home use. With inadequate therapy options often leading to unfavorable outcomes, health professionals routinely told their clients that they have “reached a plateau” or “no further gains can be made”. The founders believed that it was not the clients who had plateaued, but rather their treatment options had plateaued. Saebo’s commitment – “No Plateau in Sight” – was inspired by this mentality; and the accessible, revolutionary solutions began. Saebo’s revolutionary product offering was based on the latest advances in rehabilitation research. From the SaeboFlex which allows clients to incorporate their hand functionally in therapy or at home, to the SaeboMAS, an unweighting device used to assist the arm during daily living tasks and exercise training, “innovation” and “affordability” can now be used in the same sentence. Over the last ten years, Saebo has grown into a leading global provider of rehabilitative products created through the unrelenting leadership and the strong network of clinicians around the world. As we celebrate our history and helping more than 100,000 clients regain function, we are growing this commitment to affordability and accessibility even further by making our newest, most innovative products more accessible than ever.

[VIDEO] Traumatic Brain Injury: Understanding Fatigue – YouTube

The TBI Coach, Nathalie Kelly, explains cognitive fatigue in a way that everyone can understand. Brain fatigue is a huge debilitating issue for those with brain injuries and concusssions. See the full transcript below.

Hello my beautiful and courageous friends,

Do you find it hard to understand that at some moments someone with a TBI can appear to function pretty well, and a minute later they are stuttering and stumbling?

It’s called Cognitive Fatigue. Cognitive fatigue happens because the injured brain is working very hard . Since the old pathways are broken, your amazing brain is having to find new paths. when the brain is overloaded and it is like your brain switch being turned off. One minute you are there, and the next minute, it was too much, a fuse blew, and you are gone.

It can be so extreme of a contrast, that people get accused of faking their brain injury. That hurts!

The best explanation I have ever heard comes from Dr. Clark Elliott in his fabulous book “The Ghost in My Brain”. He came up with a great metaphor. It is as if we have 3 energy batteries, an A, B, C battery.

The most efficient battery is the A battery. For most people, it gets charged up each night with sleep,and lasts throughout the day. When the A battery gets used, we have to turn to our B battery. The B battery does not last as long and takes a lot longer to charge. When the B Battery runs down, we have to turn to our emergency battery, the C battery. The C battery should be for dire emergencies only. It only lasts a short while and it takes days to recharge. It’s kinda of like your laptop tells you you have 2% battery left. And then it shuts off and the screen goes black.

When you have a TBI, your A battery gets used up processing things that took no effort before. An enormous percentage of our brain’s energy goes toward processing vision. While it was no problem before, now Processing vision and sound, balance and motion, now takes most of your available energy. So your A batteries are always depleted.

You are now running on B batteries to do anything else, getting groceries, driving a car, going to work. They are not going to last long. And so you are dipping into the C batteries on a daily basis and not just during an emergency.

This is what it looks like when the C batteries are depleted. There will be days of sleep to pay for pushing it this far.

At the beginning of a brain injury when your brain is working really hard to find workarounds for the broken connections, you may be like this most of the time. Over time, as your brain slowly heals, your ability to process information improves and now your A battery has a little more capacity. As you get better you are tapping into you C battery less and less, perhaps only on rough days instead of everyday.

When you are fatigued, it is really important to sleep. That is the only way the batteries get charged again. And that is how our brain heals. New studies show that sleep is the process during which the brain dispels toxins so it can function at its best.

So, if someone you love has a Brain Injury and you can tell they are fatigued. What they need from you is an Immediate response. It takes less than a minute to go from one battery cell to the next, Take them out of the situation, the restaurant, the noise, and get them to quiet, dark, and rest ASAP. You do not want to linger. and You do not want to push the system into the C batteries.

Please share with our community your thoughts and experiences in the comment section below. What do you think of this A B C Battery metaphor? What helps you with cognitive fatigue?

[VIDEO] Third Thumb Changes The Prosthetics Game – YouTube

London-based product designer, Dani Clode designed a third thumb to change the way people think about prosthetics. Clode believes that prosthetics extent a wearer’s ability. They shouldn’t be regarded as a replacement to part of the human body. The third thumb is made from a series of interconnected parts: a hand piece, an attachment, cables, motors, and two Bluetooth controllers.

[VIDEO] Aphasia – Imagine life without words – YouTube

Aphasia – Imagine life without words – it could happen to you.

All comments are welcome on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Understanding…

Aphasia (or dysphasia) is a communication difficulty caused by brain damage. Most people who have aphasia have had a stroke, but it can also occur from tumours, infection and progressive diseases like motor neuron disease (ALS).

There are different types of aphasia like Wernicke’s, Broca’s. Conduction, Anomic and Global Aphasia which relates to the part of the brain that’s damaged. The term is also a descriptor of whether you lose your capacity to understand speech, talk, read and/or write. There are also different severity types, Global being the most severe as it affects all modes of written and verbal communication. However there is one commonality, the person with aphasia’s frustration at not being able to communicate in the way they used to.

This video on “Aphasia – life without words” was made by a Speech Pathologist and aims to take you into the world of a person with aphasia – a young mother who struggles to do everyday things. How does she shop? Eat at a café? Spend time with friends? This video also shows real life examples of supports and treatment options anyone can put in place, once they have been shown how.

Millions of people suffer from this condition, its time they had a voice, it is time people understood aphasia.

Please share this link with friends, family and colleagues and help raise awareness.
