Following stroke, control of both the contralesional (paretic) and ipsilesional (less affected) arms is altered. The purpose of this study was to analyse the consequences of stroke on joint rotations of both shoulder girdles, that is, glenohumeral (GH) and scapula motion. Because of hemispheric specialization, we hypothesized that changes would relate to the side of hemisphere damage. Nine stroke patients with left, and 9 with right hemisphere damage (LHD and RHD) and 9 healthy subjects were… CONTINUE READING
