Rapid Movement Therapy for Stroke Rehabilitation


Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Stroke survivors have higher risks of falling compared to other healthy non-stroke adults. Stroke patients' balance can be trained by Kinect-based training that enable user friendly and interactive training.



  • Balance training Procedure
    Intervention Desc: Improvement of balance ability in stroke patients
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Kinect based Rapid Movement Therapy
    Description: Kinect based Rapid Movement Therapy (RMT) training requires participants to move their limbs very rapidly to reach-to-grasp or step towards a virtual target appear suddenly on a screen, which is designed to their range of motion as well as response speed.
    ARM 2: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Conventional balance training
    Description: Conventional balance training involves some slow and low-impact muscle strengthening and mobilizing exercises.
