There is a need to provide a large amount of extra practice on top of usual rehabilitation to adults after stroke. The purpose of this study was to determine if it is feasible to add extra upper limb practice to usual inpatient rehabilitation and whether it is likely to improve upper limb activity and grip strength.

Name: Pilot and feasibility studies
Upper limb dysfunction is one of common sequelae of stroke which limits daily activities and decreases quality of life of patients, as well as increasing caregiving burden on families. Theta burst sti...
The purpose of this study was to understand the relationship between abdominal muscle strength and recovery of upper limb function, after adjusting for various confounding factors, such as age, gender...
Mu and beta EEG oscillations show typical desynchronization patterns during movement. The aim of the current study was to assess whether in sub-acute stroke patients the magnitude of movement-related ...
Alien limb syndrome following stroke within the territory of the posterior cerebral artery is exceedingly rare. A right-handed female experienced left homonymous hemianopia, visuospatial neglect, and ...
After stroke, only 12% of survivors obtain complete upper limb (UL) functional recovery, while in 30% to 60% UL deficits persist. Despite the complexity of the UL, prior robot-mediated therapy researc...
This study will examine the feasibility and effect of a program that combines exercise and feedback from a wearable device on upper limb movement practice and function in individuals with ...
A new clothing robotic arm was developed for multi-joint coordinated upper limb rehabilitation after stroke. Patients after stroke will be recruited to evaluate the rehabilitation effectiv...
Weakness in the arm is common after stroke and can affect stroke survivors' ability to perform some tasks. Studies show that extra sessions of arm exercise can help them to improve their a...
The objective of this pilot randomized controlled single blinded, parallel-group study is to detect change of the Action Observation (AO) and Repetitive Task Practice (RTP) combined practi...
Patients with stroke in the brain, due to central nervous system damage, lack of correct action patterns, limited joint movement of upper limbs, affecting the patient's performance. The Ki...
Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.
An apraxia characterized by the affected limb having involuntary, autonomous, and purposeful behaviors that are perceived as being controlled by an external force. Often the affected limb interferes with the actions of the normal limb. Symptoms develop from lesions in the CORPUS CALLOSUM or medial frontal cortex, stroke, infarction, and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB SYNDROME, corticobasal degeneration).
The region of the upper limb in animals, extending from the deltoid region to the HAND, and including the ARM; AXILLA; and SHOULDER.
Studies to determine the advantages or disadvantages, practicability, or capability of accomplishing a projected plan, study, or project.
An empirical investigation which pertains to the development of prototypes or models that demonstrate the feasibility of novel concepts, ideas, principles, schema or their practical application.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
