A Stroke of Luck

The Meaning of A Stoke of Luck's Colors


A Stroke of Luck CEO and founder Craig Pankhurst developed a useful system based on traffic lights. The ‘traffic light’ principle enables survivors to articulate their feelings or levels of ability.

About A Stroke of Luck


A Stroke of Luck is a British charity that helps people recover from a stroke. Stroke survivors get advice and access to exercise-based stroke recovery.


Craig Pankhurst started the charity after his stroke in 2018. He was an international swimmer and successful business owner before his stroke.


 

The Traffic Light System


Craig Pankhurst came up with the idea of using the green, amber, and red colors to express levels of ability. Many stroke survivors feel very tired. They can use these colors to indicate their energy levels.


Craig Pankhurst says, “My daughters were only 8 and 12 when I had stroke. One of the main effects for me was the extreme tiredness. Trying to explain nerve fatigue was very difficult, so we used green, amber and red to help.
