£2m Electrical Earpiece Trial For Stroke Patients

A new treatment for stroke patients which is being tested in a clinical trial in a bid to improve arm recovery following a stroke is due to be featured on BBC Look North tonight (18 January 2024).

The new trial, known as TRICEPS, will use an innovative nerve stimulation therapy which will be delivered to stroke survivors via a portable, pacemaker-like device without the need for surgical implants. 

More than 100,000 people in the UK have a stroke every year.

About a third of survivors are left with permanent arm weakness, limiting their ability to carry out everyday activities.

You can read more about the Sheffield: £2m electrical earpiece trial for stroke patients on the BBC News page or catch the story on BBC Look North (airs 6.30pm) this evening.
