Stroke is a global public health problem in developed countries—a situation which will be aggravated by the progressive population aging. Stroke is one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality, dependency, and disability. Up to half of all patients who survive an acute stroke fail to regain independence and need long-term health care, which is translated into significant costs for the patient, their family, and the health services. The functional prognosis depends on multiple variables, such as prehospital delay, type of medical treatment, and post-stroke rehabilitation, which have to be approached and studied extensively. This Special Issue aims to delve into the different variables that influence residual functional capacities. Therefore, we invite you to send manuscripts that address any of these variables, to promote greater autonomy in stroke patients.
