OBJECTIVE To test a functional electric stimulation (FES)-assisted exercise therapy system for improvement of motor function of the hemiplegic upper extremity. DESIGN A before-after trial, with 2-month follow-up. SETTING A university research laboratory. PARTICIPANTS A convenience sample of 6 subjects (3 men, 3 women). Main inclusion criteria were(More)
In the absence of sensory input, the central nervous system can generate a rhythmical pattern of coordinated activation of limb muscles. Contracting muscles have spring-like properties. If synergistic muscles are co-activated in the right way, sustained locomotion can occur. What is the role of sensory input in this scheme? In this chapter we first discuss(More)
Current diagnosis and treatment of movement impairment post-stroke is based on the subjective assessment of select movements by a trained clinical specialist. However, modern low-cost motion capture technology allows for the development of automated quantitative assessment of motor impairment. Such outcome measures are crucial for advancing post-stroke(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if a low-cost, automated motion analysis system using Microsoft Kinect could accurately measure shoulder motion and detect motion impairments in women following breast cancer surgery. DESIGN Descriptive study of motion measured via 2 methods. SETTING Academic cancer center oncology clinic. PARTICIPANTS 20 women (mean age = 60(More)
Neural control of movement can only be realized though the interaction between the mechanical properties of the limb and the environment. Thus, a fundamental question is whether anatomy has evolved to simplify neural control by shaping these interactions in a beneficial way. This inductive data-driven study analyzed the patterns of muscle actions across(More)
The study of neuromuscular control of movement in humans is accomplished with numerous technologies. Non-invasive methods for investigating neuromuscular function include transcranial magnetic stimulation, electromyography, and three-dimensional motion capture. The advent of readily available and cost-effective virtual reality solutions has expanded the(More)
