OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of repeated, externally imposed, flexion-extension movements of the elbow on the resulting stretch reflex response in hemiparetic spastic brain-injured patients. These effects were compared within a recording session and across sessions for the same subject to determine the impact of movement history on the quantification of spastic hypertonia using the stretch reflex response. DESIGN Twenty to 30 sequential, constant velocity flexion-extension movements were… CONTINUE READING
