Enhanced Reality for Hemiparetic Arm in the Stroke Patients

Not yet recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The researchers found that enhanced reality developed for the first time in the word by us had a synergistic or additive effect on brain plasticity in patients without central nervous system injury. The aim of this study is to determine the validity and feasibility of enhanced reality in hemiparetic arm in the stroke patients with central nervous system injury.

Detailed Description

Pre-interventional evaluation; within 1 day of initiation of the intervention; 10 days after initiation of the intervention; 30 days after termination of treatment.

Conditions

Interventions

  • Enhanced reality Device
    Intervention Desc: This prototype is developed by investigators for the first time so that it have no trademark or manufacturer name yet. The patient sits facing the horizontal desk with the ER therapy device, and then raises the wrist joint to the fixed base. The hand, wrist, and distal forearm to be treated are positioned below the ER medical camera so that the wrist is visible on the screen. Fix the wrist and wrist joint using Velcro. When treating the distal forearm, detach the wrist fixing Velcro.
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Enhanced reality
    Description: Patients are provided with occupational therapy and physical therapy (task-oriented OT 30 min, FES 20 min) daily for 50 minutes. ER therapy is provided 2 times a day for 10 minutes for 2 weeks (10 days of treatment week), except for time of installation, calibration, and 3 minute breaks.
  • No Enhanced reality Other
    Intervention Desc: Identical rehabilitation without enhanced reality
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: No Enhanced reality
    Description: Patients are provided with occupational therapy and physical therapy (task-oriented OT 30 min, FES 20 min) daily for 50 minutes.

Outcomes

Type Measure Time Frame Safety Issue
Primary Change of Jebsen Taylor test 1 day before the initiation of intervention, 10 day after the initiation of intervention, and 30 days after termination of treatment
Secondary Change of Arm motor Fugl-Mayer scale 1 day before the initiation of intervention, 10 day after the initiation of intervention, and 30 days after termination of treatment
