Cerebrovascular accident or stroke is one of the major causes of debilitation in the world. The major symptoms of stroke are loss of muscle power, spasticity and in-coordination of muscle activation. In the past, the assessment of above symptoms were quite subjective by using Medical Research Council scale, Brunnstrom’s stage and modified Ashworth scale and the rehabilitation of these patients was a labor intensive work. In the past decade, a series of researches was conducted at National Cheng… CONTINUE READING
