Aim: To investigate the effectiveness of self-directed arm interventions in adult stroke survivors. Methods: A systematic review of Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL, SCOPUS and IEEE Xplore up to February 2018 was carried out. Studies of stroke arm interventions were included where more than 50% of the time spent in therapy was initiated and carried out by the participant. Quality of the evidence was assessed using the Cochrane risk of bias tool. Results: A total of 40 studies (n = 1172 participants…

Self-Rehabilitation for Post-Stroke Motor Function and Activity–A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis showed low to moderate evidence that self-rehabilitation and conventional therapy efficacy was equally valuable for post-stroke motor function and activity.
Wristband Accelerometers to motiVate arm Exercises after Stroke (WAVES): a pilot randomized controlled trial
TLDR
A multicentre RCT of wristband accelerometers to prompt arm activity early after stroke is feasible and a total sample of 108 participants would be required.
Video-guided exercise after stroke: a feasibility randomised controlled trial
TLDR
A trial of video-guided exercise is feasible, although an optimal main trial would require some relatively minor changes to design, outcome measures, eligibility, and the intervention.
Perseverance with technology-facilitated home-based upper limb practice after stroke: a systematic mixed studies review
TLDR
A conceptual framework for perseverance with technology-facilitated home-based upper limb practice is proposed, which offers opportunities for clinicians and researchers to design strategies targeting factors that influence perseverances with practice, in both the clinical prescription of practice and technology design.
Self-Directed Exergaming for Stroke Upper Limb Impairment Increases Exercise Dose Compared to Standard Care
TLDR
The exercise dose achieved by inpatient stroke survivors using an adapted upper limb exercise gaming (exergaming) device is quantified and self-directed adapted exergaming enabled participants in the stroke inpatient cohort to increase exercise duration and repetitions 8-fold, compared to standard care, without requiring additional professional supervision.
SaeboGlove therapy for upper limb disability and severe hand impairment after stroke (SUSHI): Study protocol for a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
SUSHI will determine if SaeboGlove self-directed, repetitive, functional-based practice improves upper limb function after stroke, whether it is acceptable to stroke survivors andWhether it is cost-effective.
Dynamic hand orthoses for the recovery of hand and arm function in adults after stroke: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials
TLDR
A positive effect in favor of non-robotic DHOs was observed for two outcomes; upper limb function and dexterity, meaning there is currently insufficient evidence that non-RoboticDHOs improve upper limb recovery after stroke.
Virtual Reality in Neurorehabilitation: An Umbrella Review of Meta-Analyses
TLDR
Critical recommendations are provided for the design and implementation of future VR programs, trials and systematic reviews, including the need for high quality randomized controlled trials to test principles and mechanisms in primary studies and in meta-analyses, in order to formulate evidence-based guidelines for designing VR-based rehabilitation interventions.
Home-based rehabilitation using a soft robotic hand glove device leads to improvement in hand function in people with chronic spinal cord injury:a pilot study
TLDR
Self-administered rehabilitation using the SEM Glove is effective for improving and retaining gross and fine hand motor function for people living with chronic cervical SCI at home and suggests that an intensive activity-based rehabilitation programme in specific individuals is sufficient to improve long-term neuromuscular activity.
Evaluation of a staff behaviour change intervention to increase the use of ward-based practice books and active practice during inpatient stroke rehabilitation: a phase-1 pre–post observational study
TLDR
A staff behaviour change intervention has the potential to increase the number of stroke survivors receiving ward-based practice books but did not increase active practice.

Post-stroke self-management interventions: a systematic review of effectiveness and investigation of the inclusion of stroke survivors with aphasia
TLDR
There is a lack of evidence to demonstrate the effectiveness of self-management approaches for stroke survivors with aphasia, and further research is needed to understand the optimal timing for self- Management in the stroke pathway and the format in which self- management support should be offered.
Dose of arm activity training during acute and subacute rehabilitation post stroke: a systematic review of the literature
TLDR
The dose of activity-related arm training during acute and subacute rehabilitation after stroke is limited, as determined by a systematic review of PubMed, CINAHL and EMBASE.
Self-efficacy and self-management after stroke: a systematic review
TLDR
There is a need for researchers, to work together with other stakeholders to develop and test interventions that can support self-management skills and confidence to make continued progress after stroke, to reduce some of the negative consequences of stroke such as reduced quality of life and social isolation.
Repetitive arm functional tasks after stroke (RAFTAS): a pilot randomised controlled trial
TLDR
A multi-centre randomised controlled trial to evaluate an upper limb RFTP therapy programme provided early after stroke is feasible and acceptable to patients and therapists, but there are issues which need to be addressed when designing a Phase III study.
Does the use of Nintendo Wii SportsTM improve arm function? Trial of WiiTM in Stroke: a randomized controlled trial and economics analysis
TLDR
The trial showed that the WiiTM was not superior to arm exercises in home-based rehabilitation for stroke survivors with arm weakness and was well tolerated but more expensive than arm exercises.
Interventions for improving upper limb function after stroke.
TLDR
A Cochrane overview of systematic reviews of interventions provided to improve upper limb function after stroke found moderate-quality evidence showed a beneficial effect of constraint-induced movement therapy, mental practice, mirror therapy, interventions for sensory impairment, virtual reality and a relatively high dose of repetitive task practice, suggesting that these may be effective interventions.
Self-efficacy and its influence on recovery of patients with stroke: a systematic review.
TLDR
The role of self-efficacy in the care for stroke patients in the nursing curriculum is necessary and the evidence concerning the determinants influencing self- efficiency makes clear how nurses can develop and tailor self- efficacy interventions for the clinical practice of people with stroke.
Constraint induced movement therapy for stroke survivors in Jordon: a home-based model
TLDR
Stroke survivors in the CIMT group showed a statistically significant improvement in upper limb function, and compares it with the clinical-based Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) approach.
Self-directed arm therapy at home after stroke with a sensor-based virtual reality training system
TLDR
Self-directed home therapy with an IMU-based home therapy system is safe and can provide a high dose of rehabilitative therapy, according to the assessments integrated into the system.
