There’s a rumor going around that you’ve got only one year after you have a stroke or brain injury to make whatever progress and recovery you’re going to make. Stroke and brain injury survivors everywhere will tell you that, from personal experience, that concept is a false rumor. We, too, believe that you can continue to improve with the right therapy – that’s one of the things that drove us to create Constant Therapy!
Mary B. had an Arterio-Venous-Malformation (AVM), more commonly known as a brain bleed. Her life changed in an instant. One minute she was getting ready for school as the acting principal of Hood School in Lynn, Massachusetts, and the next she was getting rushed to MGH by ambulance.
We at Constant Therapy NEVER want you to get bored with your therapy or feel you’ve reached a plateau. So we’re always excited to provide you with more tasks. As always, our tasks are grounded in research. You’ll also see some new functions within the app to make your day to day therapy (whether you’re giving or receiving.) more efficient and effective. Read on to find out what our awesome developers have cooked up for us this update.
