WP 2013 fast facts on stroke

May is National Stroke Awareness Month.  Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability, and is a leading cause of death for Americans . Regular exercise can help the stroke survivor get back the strength that was lost due to stroke.

Stroke guidelines suggest that the survivor gets 20  to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise three to seven days per week.

Please visit www.secondstepinc.com to find out more about the results oriented, clinically proven Gait Harness System® (GHS) and NEW Gait Harness System® II (GHSII). Many severely injured individuals who are using the GHS, and who were unable to walk in the 5, 10 and 20 plus years post their injuries, are now beginning to stand and walk again for the first time. The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments.
