This position paper introduces an assessment method using staged calculation of coefficients of impairment in spastic paresis, with its rationale and proposed use. The syndrome of deforming spastic paresis superimposes two disorders around each joint: a neural disorder comprising stretch-sensitive paresis in agonists and antagonist muscle overactivity, and(More)
Neurorestoration of motor command in spastic paresis requires a double action of stimulation and guidance of central nervous system plasticity. Beyond drug therapies, electrical stimulation and cell therapies, which may stimulate plasticity without precisely guiding it, two interventions seem capable of driving plasticity with a double stimulation and(More)
INTRODUCTION Upper limb robot-assisted rehabilitation is a novel physical treatment for neurological motor impairments. During the last decade, this rehabilitation option utilizing technological tools has been evaluated in hemiparetic patients, mostly after stroke. STATE OF ART Studies at acute and chronic stages suggested good tolerance and a significant(More)
