'This is a unique and outstanding video guide for stroke survivors and their families.
I strongly recommend it.'
Prof. Vladimir Hachinski, Editor-in-Chief of the journal Stroke

'This small set of DVD is an extraordinary additional resource for stroke patients, their family and all stroke teams should consider. I am sure Dr Feigins's outstanding work will help considerably to improve the management of this difficult condition both in hospital and community setting.'
Prof. Giancarlo Logroscino, Harvard University

'The educational programmes contained in these DVDs are the key to improving quality of life post-stroke. It is like having a personal trainer and health professional available 24/7.'
Prof. Antonio Culebras, Former President of the World Stroke Organizsation

'Overall, this DVD set provides invaluable knowledge about stroke in an accessible format. The information from both patients and health-care professionals on the medical aspects of stroke and what is available to aid recovery is important and these DVDs should be available to those who need them.'
Sonia Hobbs, c/o The Lancet Neurology
The Ultimate Stroke DVD Guide
Every minute over 30 people in the world are struck by a stroke. Four out of ten people with stroke are younger than 65 years. Two out of ten people die within the first month of stroke onset, and approximately two thirds of stroke survivors remain disabled and dependent on others in their everyday activities.

Despite all these devastating consequences of stroke, the availability of training, educational and rehabilitation tools for stroke survivors and their families have been very limited.

Now, a world-first observational learning tool in stroke rehabilitation is available - a set of three DVDs with comprehensive and medically accurate procedures designed specifically for stroke survivors, their families and health professionals.

DVD 1: Understanding Stroke: Experts Advice
DVD 2: Home Care and Rehabilitation
DVD 3: Coping with Stroke Aftermath
