Influence of gravity compensation training on synergistic movement patterns of the upper extremity after stroke, a pilot study
TLDR
A decreased strength of involuntary coupling might contribute to the increased arm function after training, and the used training setup is simple and affordable and is suitable to use in clinical settings. Expand
Effect of position feedback during task-oriented upper-limb training after stroke: five-case pilot study.
TLDR
Although augmented feedback use was limited, kinematic outcome measures and movement performance during training increased in all subjects, which was comparable with other studies. Expand
Circle drawing as evaluative movement task in stroke rehabilitation: an explorative study
TLDR
The present study showed statistically significant differences in circle area, roundness and the use of synergistic movement patterns between healthy subjects and stroke survivors, which are strongly correlated to stroke severity. Expand
Gaming and Conventional Exercises for Improvement of Arm Function After Stroke: A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study.
TLDR
It was showed that both arm and hand function improved as much after training with a rehabilitation game as after time-matched conventional training. Expand
The MIRIAM Robot: A Novel Robotic System for MR-Guided Needle Insertion in the Prostate
TLDR
This study presents a novel MR-conditional robot and demonstrated the ability to perform MR-guided needle-based interventions in soft-tissue phantoms and the image distortion analysis indicates that no visible image deterioration is induced by the robot. Expand
Changes in muscle activation after reach training with gravity compensation in chronic stroke patients
TLDR
Improvements in unsupported reach after gravity compensation training in chronic stroke patients with mild to severe hemiparesis were mainly accompanied by increased activation of prime movers at the elbow, although in some patients, improved selective joint control may also have been involved. Expand
A low-tech virtual reality application for training of upper extremity motor function in neurorehabilitation
TLDR
The development of a relatively low-tech and inexpensive VR application, based on motion capturing, for specific use in neurorehabilitation and some preliminary results of its evaluation in stroke, one of the largest rehabilitation populations are presented. Expand
Objective measurement of synergistic movement patterns of the upper extremity following stroke: An explorative study
TLDR
The proposed outcome measures seem to be suitable measures to objectively quantify the occurrence of synergistic movement patterns of the upper extremity following stroke, and strong correlations between the proximalupper extremity part of the Fugl-Meyer (FM) scale and the use of synergism movement patterns were found. Expand
Preliminary results of training with gravity compensation of the arm in chronic stroke survivors
TLDR
The present findings indicate that gravity compensation in combination with rehab games can be a valuable training modality for stroke rehabilitation. Expand
P343: Influence of a single dose of fluoxetine on brain activity during movement observation and execution, muscle activity and motor function in chronic stroke patients
TLDR
Jitter values higher than 45 μs calculated from periocular muscles with 37 mm CNE with 2 kHz low-cut frequency filtering may suggest neuromuscular transmission disorder and further investigation should be performed. Expand
