Motor Functions

Loss of mobility, including partial or complete paralysis, one of the most common disabilities resulting from stroke, is caused by the brain’s loss of control over parts of your body.

Without the brain’s supervision, your muscles do not move or only do so chaotically. It is quite common to have partial hemiplegia (paralysis on one side of the body) or some spasticity (uncontrolled contractions of limbs).

Why are you having motor problems?

Neurological functions are those mediated by our brain and nerves; they are essential for daily activities, such as walking, dressing, or grasping objects.

After a stroke, brain impairment results in disruption of information processing and transmission through the nervous system, which translates into a loss of walking ability or motor trouble: spasticity, hemiplegia, local paralysis (leg, arm, finger, toe, or facial paralysis), ataxia…

Motor damage not only affects your professional life but also your daily activities. Many stroke victims lose their independence, as they need help to move, get dressed, or eat.

How to recover your motor abilities after a stroke

The goal of physical therapy is to regain some independence. Physical therapy is a long and intense process, with daily exercises needed to increase strength and endurance. Stroke rehabilitation is essential to make you use affected limbs you would otherwise neglect.

One of the key neurological processes supporting post-stroke rehabilitation within the brain is its capacity to reorganize healthy neuron networks to form new information circuits. This process is called neuroplasticity.

NeuroAiD™ has been shown to boost the production of new neurons in the brain (neurogenesis) and to favor the connections between neurons (formation of synapses). These processes create a fertile brain environment for motor recovery.

What can you expect from NeuroAiD™ stroke treatment?

After one month of treatment, patients observed during clinical trials regained on average a further 25% of their motor functions and achieved 2.4 times more independence than patients not receiving NeuroAiD™.

In a separate clinical trials, patients receiving Neuroaid were shown to recover on average 70% of their motor functions vs 43% for the placebo group after three months treatment.
