OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility of a new stroke rehabilitation therapy for the hemiparetic hand. DESIGN Case series. Pre- and postintervention assessment with 1- and 3-month follow-ups. SETTING Clinical research laboratory of a large public hospital. PARTICIPANTS Three subjects with chronic (>6mo postcerebrovascular accident) upper-extremity hemiplegia. INTERVENTION Subjects used an electric stimulator to cause the paretic hand extensor muscles to contract and thereby open the hand… CONTINUE READING
