The recovery of coordinated motor function after stroke onset has been associated with the practice of upper limb movements that required the activation of homologous muscles. This pilot study investigated whether repetitive bimanual coordinated movements enhanced upper limb corticomotor (CM) excitability and motor function poststroke. Patients practiced driving their paretic wrist through passive rhythmical flexion-extension by active flexion-extension of their unaffected wrist using purpose… CONTINUE READING
