BACKGROUND Visual information comprises one of the most salient sources of information used to control walking and the dependence on vision to maintain dynamic stability increases following a stroke. We hypothesize, therefore, that rehabilitation efforts incorporating visual cues may be effective in triggering recovery and adaptability of gait following(More)
OBJECTIVES Given the importance of vision in the control of walking and evidence indicating varied practice of walking improves mobility outcomes, this study sought to examine the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of varied walking practice in response to visual cues, for the rehabilitation of walking following stroke. DESIGN This 3 arm parallel,(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a novel feedback device (Grasp Rehabilitation Accessory for Stroke Patients [GRASP]) that gives feedback on the time lag between the start of hand opening and the start of transport during reach-to-grasp movements, and to report the results of a preliminary series of single case studies to assess the utility of the device for improving(More)
Sensory extinction following stroke, manifests as a bias in spatial attention towards ipsilesional spatial locations, which arises when stimuli from other locations compete for pathologically limited attentional resources. In the tactile domain, extinction results in a failure to verbally report tactile stimuli applied to a contralesional body part when(More)
