The Application of Thermal Stimulation on Functional Recovery of Stroke Patients


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

In literature review, thermal stimulation (TS) intervention is effective in facilitating upper extremity functional recovery in stroke patients. In addition, several functional MRI studies have indicated that thermal stimuli promoted activation in the premotor and motor cortices of healthy participants. These imply the possibility of TS in cortical reorganization. However, there were no studies exploring the...
