Visual Feedback Therapy for Treating Individuals With Hemiparesis Following Stroke

Completed

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The purpose of the study is to determine whether an existing treatment for problems that participants have with making movements after a stroke can be performed at home.

Detailed Description

This study will compare two forms of home-based treatment for post-stroke problems making movements with the arms and hands. After initial pre-treatment assessments, participants will complete 4 weeks of treatment, with assessments after each week of treatment and 3 months after the completion of treatment.

Conditions

Interventions

  • Visual feedback therapy #1 Behavioral
    Intervention Desc: A home based therapy involving modification of visual feedback.

    Label: Visual feedback therapy #1
    Description: In both forms of visual feedback therapy, participants will practice making movements at home without full visual feedback of their low-functioning arm.
  • Visual feedback therapy #2 Behavioral
    Intervention Desc: A home based therapy involving modification of visual feedback.
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Visual feedback therapy #2
    Description: In both forms of visual feedback therapy, participants will practice making movements at home without full visual feedback of their low-functioning arm.
