PURPOSE The aim of this study is to assess the effect of a simple wrist-hand splint, made of mesh materials, on the spastic paretic hand. METHODS The participants were 15 patients with hemiparetic stroke. Time from stroke onset was over 120 days. We assessed integrated EMG of flexor digitorum sublimus (FDS), extensor indicis proprius (EIP), flexor carpi radialis (FCR), extensor carpi radialis (ECR), brachioradialis (BR) and triceps brachii (Tri) during active finger extension and shoulder… CONTINUE READING
