Many patients are left seriously disabled after a CVA. During a stay in a specialized stroke unit, an interdisciplinary team (with medical knowledge, physiotherapy, ergotherapy, speech therapy, and nursing care) is responsible for estimating the rehabilitation needs and the patient's potential before the rehabilitation process can begin. There is a group of patients who need rehabilitation, but unfortunately their rehabilitation potential is considered to be too low, due to a variety of reasons. This may be due to the seriousness of the CVA, previous physical and mental functions of the patient, or that the patient's stamina does not allow it at that particular moment. These patients are in need of rehabilitation, though not with the intensity offered in a traditional rehabilitation unit. There is currently no clear and/or appropriate care protocol for these patients.
