from a bed back to life... the most effective        rehabilitation proces

Stroke presents a major global public health challenge, with 5.5 million people dying from stroke each year (WHO 2003) and many more living with chronic disability (Wolfe 2000).
Early rehabilitation is described as an important feature of stroke unit care (Langhorne 1998), but patients are restricted to bed for some days (Diserens 2006) before mobilization is allowed. Very early mobilization has been recently recommended in a number of acute stroke clinical guidelines (Adams 2003; NSF 2007).
