BACKGROUND Kinematic and kinetic measurements used in laboratory settings can quantify upper extremity movement impairment following stroke, but their relationship to clinical methods of evaluating movement impairment is unclear. OBJECTIVE To test whether the Arm Coordination Training 3D device (ACT3D) could provide a repeatable quantitative measurement(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Locomotor training (LT) using a treadmill can improve walking ability over conventional rehabilitation in individuals with hemiparesis, although the personnel requirements often necessary to provide LT may limit its application. Robotic devices that provide consistent symmetrical assistance have been developed to facilitate LT,(More)
Abnormal upper extremity coordination can be expressed in the form of atypical muscle synergies that result in limited and stereotypic movement patterns when an individual with hemiparetic stroke attempts to support the arm against gravity. These movement constraints are functionally disabling. We have developed and are employing the Arm Coordination(More)
