OBJECTIVE Determine whether somatosensory stimulation affects outcomes of motor training for moderate-to-severe upper extremity hemiparesis less than 12 months post-stroke. DESIGN 55 adults participated in 18 intervention sessions pairing 2 hours of active (n=33) or sham (n=22) somatosensory stimulation with 4 hours of intensive task-oriented motor… CONTINUE READING
