Predicting recovery potential for individual patients increases rehabilitation efficiency after stroke
This is the first study to provide PREP predictions to patients and therapists, and evaluate the effects on therapy and outcomes. It found that using the PREP algorithm in real-world clinical practice increased therapist confidence, modified therapy content, and reduced length of stay by one week, without any negative effects on patient outcomes or satisfaction.

Predicting and accelerating motor recovery after stroke Video abstractThis invited review summarises recent research in predicting recovery of motor impairment and function after stroke, and explores whether accelerating recovery may be a more useful goal than raising the recovery ceiling.Stinear CM, Byblow WD. Predicting and accelerating motor recovery after stroke. Curr Opin Neurology. 2014;27:624-630
An update on predicting motor recovery after stroke
