    This video is focusing on walking. It is full of clear explanations and easy to follow demonstrations of simple and short exercises, techniques, helpful ideas and tips that all support the different phases of using and re-using our legs from hip to toes. If you want to help a stroke survivor or you are a stroke survivor who is ready to get back this vital skill, this part is a must.

    I am an ARNI instructor in training and I am finding these videos essential in helping me become a knowledgeable, effective and inspired trainer. I purchased the complete set, along with Dr Balchin’s Stroke Survivor book and I refer to them on a daily basis and I know they will continue to be an indispensable tool in my development. Each technique is clearly explained and demonstrated by Tom and the great thing is that you can pause at any point to try it yourself, or listen back to something. If you are a trainer / carer / friend or family member, wanting to help a loved one who has had a stroke then these DVDs are a must.

    If as a stroke survivor, you dream about regaining the techniques necessary to effectively get around in public you need this video. It’s an excellent video and important for us stroke survivors to have as a guide.
