Many stroke patients have to cope with impaired arm and hand function. As a feasibility study, gravity compensation (GC) and multichannel electrical stimulation (ES) were applied to the forearm of eight stroke patients to study potential effects on dexterity. ES was triggered by positional data of the subject's hand relative to the objects that had to be grasped. Dexterity was evaluated by means of the Box and Blocks Test (BBT). The BBT was performed with four combinations of support; with and… CONTINUE READING
