The purpose of this study was to describe the relationship between the delay in initiation and termination of muscle contraction and clinical measures of motor impairment and physical disability in the affected upper limb of patients with hemiparesis. Electromyographic (EMG) activity of 26 long-term survivors of stroke was recorded during isometric wrist flexion and extension. Upper limb motor impairment and disability were assessed with the Fugl-Meyer motor assessment (FMA) and arm motor… CONTINUE READING
