Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The purpose of this study is to investigate the combined training effectiveness of mechanical robot and neuromuscular electrical stimulation on upper limb rehabilitation after stroke.



  • Electrical Stimulation; Rehabilitation Robot Device
    Intervention Desc: The recruited subjects will receive 20-session device assisted upper limb training with an intensity of 3 to 5 sessions/week, which will be finished within 7 consecutive weeks. In each session, the subjects will conduct the system assisted and task-oriented upper limb training for 1.5 hours.
