FINGER Robot Therapy Study

Recruiting

Phase 4 Results N/A

Trial Description

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of training hand movement using FINGER robot after stroke. FINGER is a robot that measures finger movements and allows users to play computer games using those movements.
