Use of the trunk for reaching targets placed within and beyond the reach in adult hemiparesis
Multijoint movements such as reaching are impaired after brain lesions involving sensorimotor areas and pathways. However, the mechanisms by which such lesions affect motor control are not fullyExpand

Effect of Trunk Restraint on the Recovery of Reaching Movements in Hemiparetic Patients
Background and Purpose— Reaching movements made with the affected arm in hemiparetic patients are often accompanied by compensatory trunk or shoulder girdle movements, which extend the reach of theExpand

Task-Specific Training With Trunk Restraint on Arm Recovery in Stroke: Randomized Control Trial
Background and Purpose— Task-specific training improves functional outcomes after stroke. However, gains may be accompanied by increases in movements compensating for motor impairments. WeExpand

Short-Term Effects of Practice With Trunk Restraint on Reaching Movements in Patients With Chronic Stroke: A Controlled Trial
Background and Purpose— In prehension tasks with objects placed within arm’s reach, patients with hemiparesis caused by stroke use excessive trunk movement to compensate for arm motor impairments.Expand

Upper extremity function in stroke subjects: relationships between the international classification of functioning, disability, and health domains.
UNLABELLED Upper limb (UL) impairments are the most common disabling deficits after stroke and have complex relationships with activity and participation domains. However, relatively few studies haveExpand

Compensation for distal impairments of grasping in adults with hemiparesis
Previous studies have shown that patients with arm and hand paresis following stroke recruit an additional degree of freedom (the trunk) to transport the hand during reaching and use alternativeExpand

Quality of Grasping and the Role of Haptics in a 3-D Immersive Virtual Reality Environment in Individuals With Stroke
Reaching and grasping parameters with and without haptic feedback were characterized in people with chronic post-stroke behaviors. Twelve (67 ±10 years) individuals with chronic stroke and arm/handExpand

Vertical reaction forces and kinematics of backward walking underwater.
The aim of this study was to compare the first and second peaks of the vertical ground reaction force (VGRF) and kinematics at initial contact (IC) and final stance (FS) during walking in one of twoExpand

Development and validation of two new sensory tests of the hand for patients with stroke
Objective: To establish validity and reliability of two new sensory tests evaluating moving (MTP) and sustained (STP) touch-pressure and their relationship to hand function for patients with stroke.Expand

Motor Activity Log-Brazil: reliability and relationships with motor impairments in individuals with chronic stroke.
UNLABELLED The Motor Activity Log (MAL) assesses the spontaneous use of the most affected upper limb with the amount of use (AOU) and quality of movement (QOM) scales during daily activities in realExpand
