Quantification of Arm Non-Use After a Stroke

Recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Reproducibility assessment of a quantitative measure of the amount of trunk compensation by kinematic analysis in a grasping task in stroke patients.This "maladaptive trunk compensation" is suspected to be underlined by "arm non-use" in some patients, since this abnormal movement impairs the ability of patients to correctly flex their shoulder and extend their elbow during grasping.

Conditions

Interventions

  • Kinematic analysis of trunk compensation Other
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: stroke patients
    Description: Kinematic measurement of the amount of trunk displacement during a grasping task Two separated measurements are recorded with a 6-hours interval A third measurement provided by a second examinator is conducted
    ARM 2: Kind: Experimental
    Label: control patients
    Description: Kinematic measurement of the amount of trunk displacement during a grasping task Two separated measurements are recorded with a 6-hours interval A third measurement provided by a second examinator is conducted

Trial Design

  • Allocation: Non-Randomized
  • Masking: Open Label
  • Purpose: Diagnostic
  • Intervention: Parallel Assignment
