[Abstract + Referrences] Developing Technique for Arm Movement Rehabilitation of Post Stroke Patient – Proceedings


There are numerous studies and efforts to improve rehabilitation programs for stroke sufferers. Mostly, the sufferers are usually suffered from temporary or permanent paralysis. This leads to rehabilitation as a recommended program to implement so that the sufferers could return to a near-to-normal and independent life. Traditionally, rehabilitation to a certain paralyzed body part, i.e. arms, uses periodic and routine therapy. It is intended to make it pliable doing joint muscle coordination movements. Therefore, this study examines and develops progressive movements to optimize the therapy result. An economical movement principle in assembling systems that is Therbligh motion is applied to the therapy of arm stroke patient movements. The principle of this movement will be compared with the traditional motion therapy used by physiotherapists. From kinematics and biomechanics analysis, it can be known which parts of the joints and muscles which play a role in the movement and how much burden occurs on the muscles or joints. The results of measurements of muscles strength with EMG to both principles of the movement of therapy for arm stroke patients, it was found that the principle of Therbligh movement produced greater muscle strength. Muscles strength is measured in position passive and active muscles.
