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...

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...
