The efficacy of novel, non-robotic devices to train reaching post stroke (2008–2013)

Abstract:
Up to 50% of stroke survivors are left with upper limb disability that limits their daily activities and their paralysis is so severe that it excludes them form training with the most effective methods. This study is a clinical trial of innovative new techniques to assist people with severe upper limb paralysis to reach following stroke survivors and has the potential to be used by other patients with paralysis.
