FAME: Functional Assessment of a Myoelectric Orthosis Hand Orthoses

2020-02-16 17:40:47 | BioPortfolio


The primary study objective is to compare post-stroke upper extremity (UE) movement while wearing a brace called the MyoPro 2 Motion G versus UE movement while wearing a resting splint and no device in stroke survivors with moderate UE dysfunction. During the study, subjects will undergo general training in the operation of the EMG-controlled orthosis and the comparison orthosis, and then guided through a series of standard clinical outcome measures. These outcome measures will allow the researchers to directly compare the relative benefit of the MyoPro 2 Motion G with a resting hand splint and no device in reducing UE impairment and increasing UE dexterity and functional task performance.
