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...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the usability of a new upper limb robot assisted therapy device in stroke patients.
This study evaluates the effects of robot-assisted therapy for adults more than 6 months after stroke on upper limb functioning. Half of the participants will receive robot-assisted therap...
The goal of this study is to determine if robot aided rehabilitation therapy can be equivalent to or more effective than conventional rehabilitation therapy at promoting functional recover...
tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) and robot assisted therapy (RAT) will be used in chronic stroke patients to improve a variety of functions with upper limb.
To investigate, in patients after stroke with a very weak upper limb, the profile of recovery for upper limb activity over the first 12 weeks, and whether early secondary impairments predict later up...
Technologies such as brain-computer interfaces are able to guide mental practice, in particular motor imagery performance, to promote recovery in stroke patients, as a combined approach to conventiona...
Gait dysfunction is common following acquired brain injury (ABI). Clinical practice guidelines can improve patient outcomes; however, information regarding ABI-specific management of gait dysfunction ...
To compare the effects of progressive reducing assistance force (AF) versus full AF controlled robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) combined with conventional physiotherapy on locomotor functions in pa...
Spasticity following lesions of the central nervous system such as stroke is a major cause of impairment and disability, especially when it affects the upper limb, and can be focally relieved by intra...
Perception of painful and nonpainful phantom sensations that occur following the complete or partial loss of a limb. The majority of individuals with an amputated extremity will experience the impression that the limb is still present, and in many cases, painful. (From Neurol Clin 1998 Nov;16(4):919-36; Brain 1998 Sep;121(Pt 9):1603-30)
The region of the upper limb in animals, extending from the deltoid region to the HAND, and including the ARM; AXILLA; and SHOULDER.
Artery arising from the brachiocephalic trunk on the right side and from the arch of the aorta on the left side. It distributes to the neck, thoracic wall, spinal cord, brain, meninges, and upper limb.
A form of acquired brain injury which occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.
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.
