- The Cochrane review: At present there is insufficient evidence to support or refute the effects of routine very early mobilisation after stroke.
- An article looking at quality of life: Conclusions. Very early mobilization may help improve long-term quality of life after stroke, particularly in relation to functional independence, but this requires further examination.
- An article where they interviewed therapists, docs and nurses: Conclusion: Our study shows that most clinicians had concerns in relation to early mobilisation of stroke patients and more clinicians had concerns for haemorrhagic than for ischaemic stroke.
- An article looking at very early mobilization and depression: Conclusion: Very early mobilization may reduce depressive symptoms in stroke patients at 7 days post-stroke.
- Early mobilization out of bed after stroke may be all good: Conclusion: It seems to reduce severe complications but not cerebral blood flow:
- Early mobilization out of bed after stroke, maybe: Conclusions: Insufficient data are available to prove the beneficial effects of early mobilisation after stroke.
- A Very Early Rehabilitation Trial for Stroke (AVERT): Conclusions:Very early mobilzation of patients within 24 hours of acute stroke appears safe and feasible.
