Abstract

A group design study was carried out using regulated feedback to enhance functional recovery in stroke patients. Patients trained on three computerized tasks aimed at improving guided limb motion in the hemiplegic arm. The therapeutic group was able to make use of the sensory feedback to outperform the control group in each of the three tasks. The therapeutic group also showed an adaptation of the improved performance on the three tasks. Further investigation is required to demonstrate that such sensory feedback training results in a corresponding improvement in activities of daily living skills.
