Trial Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if 5 consecutive sessions of PathMaker DoubleStim treatment, which combines non-invasive stimulation of the spinal cord (tsDCS- trans-spinal direct current stimulation) and of the median nerve at the peripheral wrist (pDCS-- peripheral direct current stimulation), can significantly reduce spasticity of the wrist and hand after stroke.
