Stroke Statistics zzzzz

15 million people suffer stroke worldwide each year.

In the USA...
  • 10% of survivors recover completely or almost completely recover.
  • 25% recover with minor impairments
  • 40% experience moderate to severe impairments that require special care
  • 10% require care in a nursing home or other long-term facility
  • 15% die shortly after the stroke
  • Approximately 14% of stroke survivors experience a second stroke in the first year following a stroke.
If we concentrate on the people who may need help with recovery we'd include survivors with
  • minor impairments to... 
  • those requiring care in a nursing facility 
This includes everything from occupational therapy to AFOs. Therefore...

11.25 million people per year worldwide will require these services and equipment.
