Feasibility study into self-administered training at home using an arm and hand device with motivational gaming environment in chronic stroke

Background Assistive and robotic training devices are increasingly used for rehabilitation of the hemiparetic arm after stroke, although applications for the wrist and hand are trailing behind. Furthermore, applying a training device in domestic settings may enable an increased training dose of functional arm and hand training. The objective of this study was to assess the...

Influence of gravity compensation training on synergistic movement patterns of the upper extremity after stroke, a pilot study

BackgroundThe majority of stroke patients have to cope with impaired arm function. Gravity compensation of the arm instantaneously affects abnormal synergistic movement patterns. The goal of the present study is to examine whether gravity compensated training improves unsupported arm function.MethodsSeven chronic stroke patients received 18 half-hour sessions of gravity...

Circle drawing as evaluative movement task in stroke rehabilitation: an explorative study

Background The majority of stroke survivors have to cope with deficits in arm function, which is often measured with subjective clinical scales. The objective of this study is to examine whether circle drawing metrics are suitable objective outcome measures for measuring upper extremity function of stroke survivors. Methods Stroke survivors (n = 16) and healthy subjects (n = 20...

An explorative, cross-sectional study into abnormal muscular coupling during reach in chronic stroke patients

Background In many stroke patients arm function is limited, which can be related to an abnormal coupling between shoulder and elbow joints. The extent to which this can be translated to activities of daily life (ADL), in terms of muscle activation during ADL-like movements, is rather unknown. Therefore, the present study examined the occurrence of abnormal coupling on functional...
