Electrical Stimulation of the Paretic Upper Limb in the Early Stroke Phase


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

This study evaluates the effect of electrical somatosensory stimulation (ESS) on the restoration of upper limb functioning in acute stroke patients. The effect will be measured at the end of the intervention and six months post-stroke. We expect that ESS facilitates the restoration of upper limb functioning and the brain reorganization following stroke.
