OBJECTIVE To test if functional electrical stimulation (FES) can enhance the recovery of upper extremity function during early stroke rehabilitation. METHODS Open-label block-randomized trial, begun during inpatient rehabilitation and continued at the patients' home. Patients were assigned to either FES combined with task-specific upper extremity rehabilitation (n = 7) or a control group that received task-specific therapy alone (n = 8) over 12 weeks. Outcome measures . Hand function (Box… CONTINUE READING
