Robotic Brace Incorporating Electromyography (EMG) for Moderate Affected Arm Impairment After Stroke


Phase 1/2 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States. One of the reasons that it is so disabling is because of upper extremity hemiparesis (weakness in one arm), which is commonly seen after stroke. The objective of this research is to see if a robotic system worn on the weakened arm like a brace is more useful in improving the strength and coordination of the affected arm, and those of other...
