Patients with severe stroke benefit most by interdisciplinary rehabilitation team approach
We evaluated the efficacy of a regular interdisciplinary stroke team approach on rehabilitation outcome.
We compared a stroke rehabilitation unit (SRU) with regular interdisciplinary stroke team conferences with general rehabilitation ward (GRW) without such conferences in the same rehabilitation hospital. One hundred and seventy-eight patients within 3 months after stroke were allocated to SRU or GRW, based on bed availability. Main outcome measures were the Functional Independence Measure, Stroke Impairment Assessment Set, length of hospital stay, discharge disposition and cost of hospitalization.
The interval between stroke onset and admission to our hospital was significantly longer in the SRU (n = 91) group compared with the GRW group (n = 87, p < 0.05). Although comparable numbers of patients were discharged home (74. 7% in the SRU vs. 71.3% in the GRW), significantly more patients (p < 0.0001) with severe disability were discharged home in the SRU group (47.4%) compared with the GRW group (0%). There were no significant differences in the increase in Functional Independence Measure score, Stroke Impairment Assessment Set score,length of hospital stay, or cost.
Patients with severe stroke appeared to benefit most from regular interdisciplinary stroke team conferences in the SRU and had an improved discharge disposition.
Santa Rosa United Alliance
Greetings SRS Players & Families,
The 2019/20 soccer season is fast approaching and SRS could not be more excited to “kick-off” the season by announcing our new Competitive Alliance program.
SRS IS EXCITED TO “KICK OFF” YEAR 3 OF THE ALLIANCE!
The program, SRU Alliance, will retains the same structure as SRS’s competitive program (seasonal teams as opposed to year-round soccer, volunteer coaches, reduced travel/commitment/costs, freedom to play multiple sports at different times of the year, same fields as SRS currently use), whilst providing the teams with more on-field guidance through coach education for volunteer coaches and SRU staff coaches as team trainers at certain times of the season.
SRU Alliance will NOT replace either SRU or SRS programs.
SRU teams will continue to be run in the same way, by the same professional staff & coaches. SRU Alliance will also be run by the same SRS coaches, volunteers and board who run the SRS Competitive Program. The difference will be that these teams will have a structured training program with assistance from SRU trainers, will play in SRU uniforms, and be part of SRU.
Why the change?
SRS have been looking to provide more for their families and coaches in terms of on-field support so that kids play for longer and coaches stay coaching for longer. SRU is always looking to improve the soccer landscape in the North Bay by providing high quality coaching to young players. There are many kids who want to compete in multiple sports equally at a young age, and both clubs want to ensure these kids get the best possible soccer education so that they stay playing the game and are well prepared if/when they decide to make the year-round commitment to soccer.
What are the benefits for both SRU & SRS?
For SRS, more coach education for their volunteer coaches, SRU trainers (1 time per week for a 3 month period) for younger teams, on-field support from SRU staff, potential for players to move between rosters (guest players), pathway for most talented kids to reach elite programs (DA/ECNL/NPL), SRU support for the SRS Recreation program.
For SRU, more player access to better training at a younger age, potential for players to move between rosters (guest players), growth of SRU club and philosophy, additional option for SRU players who decide they don’t want to play year-round but want to stay at SRU, and earlier identification and integration into SRU of players who have the ability to play at elite level.
How does this impact current SRU teams?
There will be very little day-to-day impact. SRU Alliance teams will continue to train and play on SRS’s current fields so training space at Trione, Place to Play and other rented fields will not be impacted. New this year, Alliance tryouts will be combined w/SRU tryouts. SRU players may get the opportunity to guest play for Alliance teams and get extra games. SRU teams will continue to be made up from those who want to play soccer year-round and dream of playing at the next level, and SRU Alliance teams will be seasonal teams allowing kids to focus on other activities at different times of the year.
Who are the leadership?
The Program Coordinators will be Matt Byrne and Jim LaFrance (both SRS competitive coaches and board members). SRU’s coaching directors and staff will provide soccer support. SRU Alliance will also be represented on the SRU board.
It is our hope and expectation that everyone at SRU and SRS embraces the SRU Alliance program as a positive move for the clubs, one that helps improve the local youth soccer community, and gives more kids from Santa Rosa the opportunity to be successful through soccer.
We encourage you to contact us with any questions regarding the program at [email protected] org and we invite you to join us at our upcoming tryouts!
Switch™Tech at Slippery Rock University
“The Switch Tech Core fits into existing cores, significantly reducing the costs of adding digital access.”
– Dan Brown, Director of Housing, Slippery Rock University, Pennsylvania
Colleges and universities are responsible for providing a safe, clean campus that protects students and staff, educational records, technology and equipment. Campus security technology includes everything from traditional mechanical keys and small format interchangeable cores (SFICs) to electronic and mobile-activated access systems.
Slippery Rock University (SRU), located in Pennsylvania, wanted to make its security practices as effective and efficient as possible. Although many parts of campus used card access, Dan Brown, Director of Housing, noted that some parts of campus – like residence halls – still used traditional keys. Transitioning from SFICs to electronic access control was not a high priority due to scale and budget, although housing leaders acknowledged the inefficiencies of their key-based system.
“We typically don’t make changes to our access systems as long as they’re working,” said Brown. “When we need to upgrade, we prioritize changeouts to maintain good budget stewardship.”
In 2020, the leadership team of SRU’s IT and Housing Department wanted to try moving offline locks in student residences into an online system. They needed a solution that would improve security and efficiency by enabling the reprogramming of student credentials from a central location rather than at each door site. The hope was this beta test would serve as a model for reducing reliance on keys in student housing at a larger scale.
Solution – BEST Switch Tech
dormakaba worked with the SRU team to install the BEST Switch Tech platform, a digital replacement for SFICs. SRU retrofitted the doors in student residences with Switch Cores and integrated them into their existing Lenel system.
With Switch Tech, SRU officials could easily control entry while providing greater access visibility and tracking. Even though challenges associated with the coronavirus pandemic disrupted the overall student experience on campus, the Switch Tech platform enabled the school to upgrade access control in strategic areas and prioritize future change-outs to digital technology.
“We have so many doors,” said Brown. “We don’t want to start changing them if we don’t have to. Switch Core fits into existing cores, significantly reducing the costs of adding digital access and it’s easy to install and use. It’s also compatible with our existing Lenel system for a complete plug and play install, and our own locksmiths can take care of it.”
“The nicest feature is that I don’t have to go to the lock to reload it,” said Maria Malacaman, Information Technology Generalist II on SRU’s housing staff. “I can see right away if a student or cardholder is having issues with access. I can troubleshoot from my office rather than going to the door site and take care of the student quickly.”
Affordable Access. Greater Control.
The Switch Tech platform extends electronic access control to previously impractical applications. The Switch Core works wherever SFICs do, including cylindrical, mortise and other locks by BEST, Sargent, Yale, Corbin Russwin, Schlage and more, making it the ideal way to retrofit existing doors on interior rooms, closets, cabinets and cases with electronic control.
Switch Tech benefits:
At approximately 10% of the cost of a hardwired access control door, Switch Tech is far less expensive than traditional electronic access control.
Installation takes just minutes with no advanced knowledge of handing or door thickness required.
Easily install Switch Cores in almost any SFIC lock and pair them with existing access control software.
Deploy Switch Tech strategically when site needs expand.
Add new lock credentials and check battery status with a click via Switch Deck.
Eliminate the workload of mechanical key management including new, lost or missing keys.
Switch Tech features no exposed fasteners or points of attack.
Make visitor management easy while reducing the risk associated with temporary keys.

SRU Remote signaling connection module
SRU (State Relay Unit) is a remote signaling connection unit. Used to transmit the state of the contact position using the TG9 block and provides galvanic isolation of the user connection and the corresponding I / O when connected to the TG9 block.
The SRU contains the following I / O:
– two entrances
– four relays of output
All outputs and inputs are isolated from each other, optically separated from logic processing and grounding elements.
The inputs (connector K3) can be used as user inputs; a switch is connected to them via an external battery, the state of which must be transmitted. In this case, the input type ST is used. The input can also be used to connect to the TG9 and connect it to the RxD and GND signals of the RS232 connector of the TG9. In this case, the input type TG is used. The input type is selected with jumpers on the SRU.
Relay outputs on connector K4 (OUT_TG) are intended for connection to the TG9 unit.The SRU OUT_TG output is connected to the TxD and GND signal of the RS232 connection of the TG9 block. The outputs are the contacts of the fast REED relay, which are normally closed by default and have an internal voltage of 12 VDC at the output.
The relay outputs available on the K5 connector (OUT_ST) are for the user and signal the accepted state of the breaker. Output – relay contacts are normally open.
Connection is made via custom connectors K3, K4 and K5 (MSTBA 2.5/4). It is recommended to use an intermediate external terminal block. The unit is connected to the SRU block by means of a connecting cable (OLFLEX CLASSIC 115 CY, 18G0.5). Terminal block type – disconnector designed for mounting on a standard DIN 35 rail.

Reset network data usage in Windows 10
Windows 10 has a built-in network monitor that allows you to see how much and which applications have used network data in the last 30 days. In today’s article, we’ll look at various ways to reset network data usage statistics to zero if necessary.
You can find this tool by going to the Start menu => Options => Network and Internet => Data Usage. The disadvantage of this tool is that data usage is shown for the last 30 days and there is no way to see how much the application is using data today. But you can use one of the methods below to reset the usage statistics and see how much data will be used for the period you need.Starting with update 16199, Window 10 introduced a button to reset data usage in system parameters.
Reset System Parameters Data Usage
1. Open the Start menu and go to Settings.
2. Open “Network & Internet” => on the left side select “Data usage”, on the right side click on “Show usage information”.
3. Next to “Show usage data from:” select which connection you want to reset, click on “Reset usage statistics” and on “Reset”.
Reset network data usage statistics in the command line
1. Open the command line as administrator: one of the ways – right-click on the Start menu and select “Run as administrator” from the menu that opens.
2. Type net stop DPS and press Enter. Enter the command DEL / F / S / Q / A “% windir% \ System32 \ sru \ *” and press the Enter key.Type another command net start DPS and press Enter.
Reset data usage with utility.
The Reset Usage Data utility does not require installation, you simply download it, run it at the right time and after pressing one button, the data usage statistics will be reset. Windows Defender SmartScreen may swear at this utility, but the response is false and you can check this file with any antivirus software or online scan tools.The author of the utility himself posted the results of checking this file using VirusTotal on the site.
1. Download Reset Usage Data by left-clicking on “Download”.
2. Open the downloaded archive and run one of the two files. If you have 64-bit Windows – you need to open the file ResetDu_x64.exe , if you have a 32-bit system – open the file ResetDu.exe. If you do not know what bit depth your system is, use the instruction “32-bit or 64-bit Windows?”.
3. If a warning from Windows Defender SmartScreen appears – left-click on “More”.
Execute in any case.
4. To reset the statistics of data usage, left-click on “Reset data usage”, in the next window, click on “OK”.
Going into the statistics of data use, you will see that zeros are written around.
Reset data usage manually.
This method is a little more complicated but without third-party software.
1. Start your computer in Safe Mode.
2. Open the “Network and Sharing Center”: one of the ways – in the search bar or in the “Run” menu (run by pressing Win + r) enter the command control.exe / name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter and press the Enter key.
3. In the left column, open “Change adapter settings”.
4. On the network adapter for which you want to reset data usage statistics, right-click and select “Disable” in the window that opens.
5. Go through the explorer to the folder C: \ Windows \ System32 \ sru and delete all its contents. That is, delete everything inside the sru folder, you do not need to delete the folder itself.
6. On the network adapter that you disabled in the fourth paragraph, right-click and select “Enable”. Exit safe mode and when you go to the statistics of data usage in normal mode, you will see that there are zeros all around.
For today everything, if you know other methods or you have additions – write comments! Good luck 🙂
Why don’t the Ubuntu repositories have the latest software?
The Ubuntu release goes through several stages before it actually makes it public as a finished product:
Some time before Ubuntu launches a release, it freezes its packages at some point.
Before the release is released, but after the package is frozen, work is done mainly to fix all bugs and problems that may be in these packages. New versions of packages are no longer imported into repositories after freezing packages or features.
Once a release occurs, additional changes to these packages will only be made to address bugs and security issues. There are no more updates for packages in the official repository, even if new versions of packages are released.
The new version of packages is sequentially imported (from Debian) for the next version of Ubuntu until the next freeze, and the same process is repeated.
As an example, you can see the 12.04 release schedule.
You can see that although 12.04 was released in April, on January 12 something called Debian Import Freeze happened.
This is just the first of many freeze stages that occur before the actual release, and means that at this point importing packages from Debian testing or erratic stops and work starts from there to tweak and fix problems with them.
Beyond this point, many service packs fail to run, and the version available at that point is the version that is present and supported throughout life.
So while in the developer PPA or Ubuntu + 1 repos, higher versions of the same package, , will be included in the next Ubuntu release.
This is for stability, security and functionality.
