The Effect of an Arm Support Device on Recovery of Arm-Hand Function in Sub-acute Stroke: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

A multi-center randomized clinical trial was performed in 7 Dutch rehabilitation centers to compare the effect of an arm support (AS) training device in combination with interactive rehabilitation games to intensive conventional reach training (CON) on recovery of arm-hand function by the Fugl-Meyer assessment (FM). An improvement of 10 and 8 points on the FM was found for respectively the CON and AS group. These preliminary results indicate that a lowtech system for arm support in rehabilitation is equally effective as intensive conventional reach training.
