Virtual Therapy in Rehabilitation Spastic Hemiparesis


Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Evaluate the effectiveness of virtual therapy and conventional physiotherapy in spastic muscles of patients with sequelae of stroke.

Detailed Description

Considered the second most frequent cause of death worldwide , the stroke is also responsible for the largest number of functional disability in individuals. The socio - economic hardship that many patients face to perform a program of intensive rehabilitation sensorimotor, has led to functional limitations in many cases , promote irreversible consequences. Spasticity in the upper and lower limb after stroke results in loss of function and mobility being the key therapeutic approaches in order to restore its function. Currently, the Virtual therapy has been used in physical therapy, demonstrating safety, feasibility and potential to facilitate the effective rehabilitation treatment, promoting motor recovery. The objective of this study is to analyze and compare the effectiveness of virtual therapy and conventional physiotherapy in paretic upper and lower limbs of patients with sensory motor deficit after stroke. Virtual therapy will be based on a custom application using virtual reality projection, and conventional treatment will be based on cinesiotherapy for members upper and lower paretic. The evaluation will be performed by biomedical instrumentation using dynamometry, electromyography and analysis from functional movement. Statistical differences are based on t test with significance level of p 0 , 05 . As a result expected - scientifically proven the effectiveness of this new form of treatment aimed at improving quality of life and functional independence of patients with neurological sequel.
