About Us: Arjan Kuipers and Linda Radestad

Free online training

The FREE online training on brain.rehab provides insights (100+ hours of videos) in the fields of brain and physical training, energy management, sleep, neuroplasticity, and nutrition (and many other topics).

Brain.rehab was developed by stroke survivor Linda Rådestad and Arjan Kuipers.

Arjan Kuipers

chiropractor/ functional neurologist (educated in the UK and USA), who developed a passion for brain-related issues because his mother suffered from brain stem migraines (heavy shaking, slumping and the inability to speak) after a series of head injuries. 

When he found out that his own daughter, after not being able to speak for the first six years, had autism, he doubled his efforts over the next years looking into developmental problems of the brain in children with learning and behavioral problems.

His publications include the Help! My Child has ADHD/Autism book, “20 Top Questions Every Parent Should Ask About ADHD/Autism”, the "Single Most Overlooked Problem in Back Patients".

Linda Radestad

Linda was 43 when a severe stroke hit her in 2016. At that time she was an internet entrepreneur and mother of three. Linda is a problem solver pure sang and decided after her stroke to put her innovative and analytic strength to good use by coming up with better solutions for fellow stroke survivors.

Free audio-book

She has published the book Stroke Rebel (free audio-book at https://www.brain.rehab/stroke-rebel-audio-book ) to show what is possible when thinking out of the box. Doctors told her she would never walk or talk again, she proved them wrong (see her TEDx talk).

Frustrated 

Both Linda and Arjan are frustrated of the lack of usable solution for people who suffered brain injuries (stroke, concussion) 

“The science is there, we do everything to share it, so that more and more people can recover”.

They see brain.rehab as their magnum opus and culmination of their lives work.

Far before regular healthcare

They take pride in providing science-based solutions far before regular healthcare can do so. 

We do not pretend to have a solution for everyone 

"We do not pretend to have a solution for everyone but see that many big opportunities are missed at present. 

During the past 20 years, brain science has made enormous steps. But it usually takes another 20 years before it becomes standard care. We don’t want to wait that long, nor do our clients".

The worldwide stroke burden

The worldwide stroke burden is growing very fast, and there is now an urgent need for acceptable and affordable stroke, management and rehabilitation strategies to be developed and implemented worldwide.

 Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Every two seconds, someone in the world has a stroke. Currently, about 10 % of stroke victims recover almost completely, 25% recover with minor impairments, 40 % have moderate to severe impairments requiring special care, and 10 % need attention in a nursing home or other long-term care facility. Worldwide stroke-related illness, disability, and early death are set to double in the next 15 years.

 

Love 

Along the process of Linda’s rehabilitation, Arjan and Linda fell in love. They are now living together in Germany, Cyprus and Sweden.
