BACKGROUND It is necessary to analyze the kinematic properties of a paralyzed extremity to quantitatively determine the degree of impairment of hemiplegic people during functional activities of daily living (ADL) such as a drinking task. This study aimed to identify the kinematic differences between 16 hemiplegic and 32 able-bodied participants in relation(More)
[Purpose] To investigate the effect of feedback training using a non-motorized device on the upper extremity kinematic performance of chronic stroke survivors. [Subjects] This study had a single group design. Thirteen chronic stroke survivors (onset duration: 11.5 years, 62.6 years, mini-mental state examination score: 26.0) were enrolled. [Methods] The(More)
[Purpose] The effects of various rhythmic auditory stimulation tempos on stroke gait pattern changes when training patients with a smartphone-based rhythmic auditory stimulation application were investigated. [Subjects and Methods] Fifteen patients with chronic stroke were included. Cadence during comfortable walking was measured (baseline). After the(More)
Stroke, as a major risk factor for chronic impairment of upper limb function, can severely restrict the activities of daily living. Recently, robotic devices have been used to enhance the functional upper extremity movement of stroke patients. The purpose of the current study was to assess whether a robot-assisted reach training program using a whole arm(More)
