Positional feedback and electrical stimulation: an automated treatment for the hemiplegic wrist

Completed

Phase N/A Results

Results

PFST patients showed a 280% increase in isometric extension torque when the wrist was positioned in 30 degrees of extension and 70% increase when positioned in 30 degrees of flexion. Control patients showed no significant changes in torque. PFST patients made an average 200% gain in selective range of motion over their starting levels while controls made a 50% gain.
