    Abstract

    Stroke often has a disabling effect on the ability to use the hand in a functional manner. Accurate finger and thumb positioning is necessary for many activities of daily living. In the current study, the feasibility of novel FES based approaches for positioning the thumb and fingers for grasp and release of differently sized objects is evaluated. Assistance based on these approaches may be used in rehabilitation of grasp and release after stroke.
