These are my DIY stroke-rehab 2019 videos: showing various forms of activity.

Open-brain surgery, AVM brain haemorrhage (congenital), in 1995. Gait, balance, sensory loss, aphasia; unable to walk, talk, read, write, remember. Now, One-Hand: How-to tutorials, craft, cook, pottery, photography, walk, silk-painting, travel, participation in PhD-candidates walk-studies, interview-talk to Physio undergrads, .. and more. Practice, perseverance, persistence, patience - one day at a time.

Video 1: Walk study AUT 2018 using EEG and FES

 

AUT walking study, to test out new techniques for stroke rehab.

It involved EEG to read the brain signal, and computer-driven FES to stimulate the leg muscles at the right time.


 

Video 2: Walk cobbled pavement Charles Bridge, Prague

 

Charles Bridge historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic.

The bridge is atmospheric, flanked by statues, imposing bridge towers. Uneven cobblestones to walk on.


 

Spinning Kafka's Head is an outdoor sculpture by David Cerny portraying Bohemian-German writer Franz Kafka installed outside a shopping centre in Prague.

The kinetic sculpture, each layer of panels is mechanized and rotates individually. Quite smooth pavers to walk on.

Piss, 2004 sculpture and fountain by Czech sculptor David Cerny. The pool of water in which the statues stand, is shaped like the Czech Republic.

Opposite, is the gingerbread shop.

Nearby is (John) Lennon Wall, with inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs.

Uneven, crazy pavers, to walk on.

Video 4: Walk over gravel, PISS sculpture, Lennon Wall, Prague


 

Preserved market, atmospheric of bygone days, in Old Town dating back to 1232.

Arts and crafts, leather goods, wooden toys, ceramics, fresh fruits, vegetables, many tourist items.

Pavement are very uneven cobblestone, very hard on the my ungainly feet; I prefer to walk on the roadway.

Video 5: Walk cobbled pavement Havelska, Prague


 

Slightly bizarre, quirky, eye-catching - three giant babies with barcode for faces, on a stroll through Kampa Park, the sculptor is David Cerny. Nearby are Yellow penguin statues by a Milan-based art group, made from recycled bottles, marching forth, they glow in the dark in the installation beside Vltava river.

Gravel, different surfaces to walk on.

Video 6: Walk over gravel, Cerny ‘Baby’ sculptures, yellow penguins, Prague


 

These establishments have internal walk-spaces: shopping arcades; passage with an upside-down horse of King Wencelas, hanging from the ceiling in an Art Nouveau building.

Then the National Museum, an imposing federal building with marble and gold embellishments.

Smooth polished floors to carefully walk on.

Video 7: Walk smooth surfaces, Narodni Wencelas horse, National Museum


 

Serene, contemplative piece, the Harmony Sri Chinmoy statue, by a British sculptor. ''If you can create harmony in your own life, this harmony will enter into the vast world: by Sri Chinmoy.''

The way down to the Harmony statue on the river bank is guarded by 3 trees, by Museum Kampa.

Gravel, very uneven surfaces to walk on.

Video 8: Walk over gravel to the Harmony Statue, Prague


 

Ancient lanes of cobblestone form a maze of beautifully preserved buildings and monuments in the medieval Old Town of Prague - Vltava river divides it.

Well-known sights in the Old Town include Old Town square and Astronomical Clock. Different cobblestones, very hard on the feet.

Video 9: Walk - Cobble Pavement, Old Town, Prague


Video 10: Walk and then Eat, Prague

Different place to go and different surfaces to walk on. When you get somewhere pleasant, you stop for a coffee, a beer, a snack, or a full-on meal.

So many cool places to be in Prague, to do just that. We weren’t in that city long enough to even scratch the surface.

Trdelnik (also called Spit-cake); Czech beers on tap and local pork knuckle, found everywhere; Soviet era Kotva Department store with the rooftop cocktail bar, criss-crossing trams on Malostranske square, gingerbread house, speciality duck and pork… too much food, not enough time.
