BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE After stroke, many individuals have chronic unilateral motor dysfunction in the upper extremity that severely limits their functional movement control. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of electromyography-triggered neuromuscular electrical stimulation on the wrist and finger extension muscles in individuals who(More)
Impaired gait initiation is one of the typical sign of advanced Parkinson's disease (PD). This is the first study to examine quantitatively the effect of deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus on the performance of gait initiation for patients with advanced PD. A total of 11 patients after surgery of bilateral deep brain stimulation of the(More)
Functional impairment of the upper limb is a major challenge faced by many stroke survivors. The present study aimed at developing a novel sensory-enhanced robot-aided motor training program and testing its feasibility in stroke rehabilitation. A specially designed robot handle was developed as an attachment to the Inmotion2 robotic system. This handle(More)
Preliminary experiment for analyzing weight shift during gait phases for hemiplegic patients was carried out to develop rehabilitation equipment. A gait phase detection system using pressure sensors was developed and the experiment was carried out for eight hemiplegic patients and normal adult. The weight shift during gait phases for a normal adult showed(More)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is effective for the treatment of advanced Parkinson's disease. Most studies have evaluated the effectiveness of DBS of the STN using clinical motor scores or simple timed tests of motor function. There have been few studies that quantitatively assessed the outcome of STN DBS using multiple(More)
