We have also designed a new tool to assess the ability of patients to produce repetitive flexion/extension movements of wrist and fingers (MoviPlate). We have assessed the feasibility and reliability of these new tools in 30 non-ambulant patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and in 30 age-matched… CONTINUE READING
