Recovery Calendar: An Important Component of Stroke Recovery

Calendars are essential for just about anyone who wants to stay on track toward their goals . In order to ensure that we fit in all of the important “to-dos” and complete tasks essential to our well-being, writing it down and tracking our progress are often good strategies. You can also apply this technique to create your own recovery calendar after stroke. A recovery calendar can help you to keep up with a daily schedule, and also reward you with the satisfaction of crossing out the completed goals. It is a simple way to stay motivated and concentrate on recovery.

How Does A Recovery Calendar Work?

You can use several different formats (see some of our examples below). A recovery calendar should include your participation in rehab exercises, symptoms and functional improvements that you’re noticing.


Benefits of a Recovery Calendar

  • Use it to keep track of your progress
  • It helps you identify your positive and negative inclinations during the recovery process.
  • It allows you to accurately measure how much you have improved.
  • It helps you to concentrate on your goals.
  • It aids in distinguishing between the effective and ineffective methods.
  • It provides accurate records for assessing the past.

RAPAEL Smart Rehab products are designed to be customized for each patient, allowing them to freely practice rehabilitation at home. Like the doctors or therapists who provide exercise schedules tailored to the patient’s condition and progress, the algorithm and artificial intelligence analyzes user progress and suggests personalized exercises, with real time adjustments in the difficulty level. After the training activity is completed, a survey will be used to study your personal preferences and recommend the right game for you.
