Development of a Mobile Application to Support Self-Management following Stroke

Access to formal stroke rehabilitation services tend to be limited to the first three months following stroke. This is despite the enduring impact of residual impairment following stroke and evidence that people can continue to experience benefit from rehabilitation services for many years after the initial insult. This has led to a growing interest in the role of mobile health initiatives to support stroke survivors to manage the ongoing impact of their stroke and broader health and well-being. This project draws in the person-based approach to intervention development and on knowledge derived from human-computer interface research to co-design an app with stroke survivors to support self-management following discharge from routine services.
