Configura Case Study - Helen
Helen is a 64-year-old lady who had a left MCA infarct. This affected the right side of her body as she presented with severe motor and sensory loss to her lower and upper limbs. Initially, she was unable to sit upright without support and had impaired sitting balance. She would lean heavily to her weaker right side due to lack of muscle activation and strength at her core and trunk. She spent a long period of rehabilitation in the hospital where she gradually regained movement to her right leg and arm. However, during the initial stages due to long periods of lying in bed, she developed a Grade 1 pressure injury on her sacrum. On discharge from hospital, she was able to mobilise with maximum assistance of one person for safety with standing and prompting for bringing attention to her right side when walking.
