Neuromuscular abnormalities associated with spasticity of upper extremity muscles in hemiparetic stroke.

Abstract

Our objective was to assess the mechanical changes associated with spasticity in elbow muscles of chronic hemiparetic stroke survivors and to compare these changes with those recorded in the ankle muscles of a similar cohort. We first characterized elbow dynamic stiffness by applying pseudorandom binary positional perturbations to the joints at different… (More)
