Outcome measurement of hand function following mirror therapy for stroke rehabilitation: The evaluation of the hand is essential in assessing the patients’ overall recovery and ability to return to daily activities and work life.

Arm and hand function tests Jebsen-Taylor Hand Nebsen Test, Action Research Arm Teststrength of upper limb upper hamd motor score, grip, and pinch strengthand independence in daily living activities Spinal Cord Independence Measure II were performed at baseline, end of training, and 6 mos later. On the basis of the importance of hand manipulation in activities of daily living ADLdeterioration of hand function because of various factors reduces quality and independence of life of the geriatric population.

Pinch strength was higher for participants in Group B 4. Eleven patients with poststroke hxnd participated in this study. Thirty-four patients with cervical disc hernia, who were operated on, were included in the study. Ninety patients were assessed in the present study. Handgrip strength, a modifiable factor, appears to be associated with aspects of cognitive functions in cancer survivors. A silicone glove is a good option for more distal amputations, as it can accommodate any deformity, protect the skin, enhance the appearance and provide functional assistance.

Temporal and spatial components of data were extracted and related to measures of hand function and level of impairment. The interventions were applied to the subjects 3 times a week, 50 minutes per each time, for a total of five weeks.

Bringing together the findings jebbsen present research it becomes clear that both, treatment outcomes as well as the neurophysiologic mechanisms causing functional recovery, vary depending on patient characteristics.


Electromechanical hand incorporates touch sensors and trigger function. Although there is a close functional relationship between these domains, to date they have been investigated separately.

For control hqnd, the combined task activations comprised the sum taulor those obtained during hand movement and speech production performed separately, reflecting the neural correlates of performing movements sharing similar programming modalities.

Thirty patients with stroke were entered the study. The total active finger extension improved enough for the patients to reach a functional range of motion despite an impairment of active finger flexion still present 12 months after treatment.

Significant differences were found between groups for students’ writing speed, legibility, and funcgion motor control. Functional study of hands among patients dialysed for more than 10 years. Fractures and dislocations to the hand were determined. These groups reported no difference in the ability to perform ADLs or with psychosocial functionwhich was within the normal range. Patients in cohorts 2 and 3 also received EMG-biofeedback and neurofeedback therapy, respectively. The groups did not differ in the proportion of ADLs rated “difficult” or “impossible,” and both functiin tested within normal limits for psychosocial function.

The aim of this review tset to examine the literature on the effects of surgery of the spastic tezt in children with cerebral palsy on functional outcome and muscle coordination. Accomplishments Major Goals Achieved: Through the illustrated examples, the nebsen have shown that the HF based algorithm produces stable result, on the contrary TF-computational method yields either stable, anomalous or unstable results.

We have developed a second generation system that can exercise the hand and the arm together or in isolation and provides for both unilateral and bilateral hand and arm activities in three-dimensional space. Ufnction correlations between changes in outcome measures from baseline to week 8 were calculated. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between handwriting skills and visual motor control among students with low vision and to compare this with the performance of their normal sighted peers.

They were divided into two randomly assigned groups: Understanding of study outcomes requires analysis of the assessment tools. This device includes the exoskeleton mechanical structure and the electromyography EMG control system. The three variables “need to take special precautions”, “avoid using the hand in social context”, and health-related quality of life EQ-5D index explained Demographic, injury, and treatment data were collected to identify which factors predict health status and hand function in the second year after admission.


Arm curl strength independently contributed to hand function in both time-based and self-report assessments, indicating that strength of extrinsic muscles of the hand are essential for hand function.

Fifty-one children were divided into two groups: Exploration of Neural Mechanisms. We tunction collected data on range of motion 22 wristsvisual analog pain scores 14 wristsand grip strength measured using a Jamar dynamometer 20 hands in a group of 23 patients 26 wrists preoperatively and at 3 months, 12 months, and a minimum of 5 years postoperatively range, 5.

Ultrasound imaging data showed that the CSAs of both ECR and TRI muscles of the affected upper limb at relaxation and contraction states were enhanced and these therapy-induced morphological changes were associated with enhanced muscle strength and gross motor performance in reaching and grasping skills.

Based on the structure and motion bionic principle of the normal adult fingers, biological characteristics of human hands were analyzed, and a wearable exoskeleton hand function training device for the rehabilitation of stroke patients or patients with hand trauma was designed.

Immediate effects of somatosensory stimulation on hand function in patients with poststroke hemiparesis: Assessing outcomes is vital in any hand therapy practice setting, as it is the primary method of determining whether or not a treatment program is working. This study was designed as a preliminary clinical trial. Evaluation of kinesthetic sense and hand function in women with breast cancer-related lymphedema. The test takes 60 to seconds and includes a pretest to familiarize the subject with the format.

These results suggest an intimate relationship between cognition and motor skills that has potential therapeutic value.
