[ARTICLE] Incorporating Robotic-Assisted Telerehabilitation in a Home Program to Improve Arm Function Following Stroke - Full Text HTML


Background and Purpose: After stroke, many individuals lack resources to receive the intensive rehabilitation that is thought to improve upper extremity motor function. This case study describes the application of a telerehabilitation intervention using a portable robotic device combined with a home exercise program (HEP) designed to improve upper extremity function. 256 more words
