Stroke care is something very near and dear to Mike’s heart. His mother had a stroke at 28, he was only 6 weeks old.
Luckily, she is still with us, but this experience showed him how unexpected a stroke can happen, and how disconnected life after stroke can be for survivors. This experience drove him to pursue a career in healthcare and sparked a passion to bring change to the stroke continuum of care.
David is a stroke survivor and the founder of Know-Stroke.org-a community originally established for young adult patients with stroke and PFO.
He is a licensed physical therapist, nutritionist, author of Body in Balance and his stroke story was featured in the NY Times. David has built his consulting practice at SmartMovesPT with the mission to extend the reach of patient care into the home for improved rehabilitation outcomes using digital health technologies.
