Coaches Shareen & Kamran have been tirelessly delivering weekly sessions to two stroke rehab groups. The aim of the trial, designed by our very own President and doctor, Daniel Grant, sees us use wallball as an adjunct intervention to community stroke rehab sessions. We hope that by gamifying some aspects of rehab, wallball can help improve stroke outcomes. Stroke rehab depends heavily on community sessions, often run by volunteers, and wallball is a cheap, simple and safe activity that can be introduced.
Phase 1 of our trial completed in October, with the team joined by London Sport’s Callum Whitton to help with the trial recordings.
Phase 2 completes in January when we re-measure all the tests and see if wallball has made a positive impact on stroke rehab.
We hope to unveil our results at the UK Open in February.
