Objectives: A large number of studies have showed a positive effect of training associated to virtual reality (VR) to improve the function of paretic upper limb (PUL) in patients with Stroke. However, there is a lack in the evidences about the transfer's potential of the gains obtained in the VR to real environment. Thus, the purpose of this study was to(More)
Objectives: Despite the recent enlargement in the usage of Virtual Reality environments for rehabilitation in Stroke, the potential for transference/generalization of gains to similar task performed in real environments remains uncertain. Thus, the purpose of this study was to verify the transference/generalization of gains obtained by training in Virtual(More)
