Hybrid power-assisted functional electrical stimulation to improve hemiparetic upper-extremity function.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The effect on spastic hemiparesis of a hybrid therapy consisting of functional electrical stimulation and block therapy was examined. DESIGN Sixteen consecutively enrolled stroke patients who had spastic upper-extremity impairments more than 1 yr after stroke were recruited for this nonblinded randomized controlled trial. Patients underwent… (More)
