The StrokeSMaRT (Stroke Self-Management and Rehabilitation Tools) initiative was started by students at Western University who are passionate about healthcare issues. We have partnered with the community stroke rehabilitation team at St. Joseph's Hospital (London, Ontario) to develop and deliver rehabilitation kits to stroke survivors with the goals of promoting independence while assisting patients in their rehabilitation journey. Each kit contains a variety of simple, everyday items that can be used in exercises to build strength and fine motor control:

  • Tennis ball
  • Deck of cards
  • Lego bricks and building blocks
  • Popsicle sticks, toothpicks, paper clips, beads and string
  • Practice buttons and zippers
  • Puzzle book
  • Informational materials
