Walking within within 24 hours after stroke: help or hurt?

·  An article where they interviewed therapists, docs and nurses: Conclusion: Our study shows that most clinicians had concerns in relation to early mobilization of stroke patients and more clinicians had concerns for hemorrhagic than for ischemic 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 mobilization after stroke.
· A Very Early Rehabilitation Trial for Stroke (AVERT): Conclusions: Very early mobilization of patients within 24 hours of acute stroke appears safe and feasible.  
· The LEAPS trial (the largest study ever done on post-stroke rehab): "patients who received early locomotor training experienced more multiple falls."
