BACKGROUND Practitioners need more sensitive measures to quantify reaching movement for judgement of the treatment effects and reflecting the degrees of motor impairment in upper extremities. OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to differentiate between spastic and normal reaching using three-dimensional (3D) motion analysis and to quantify the(More)
