[Abstract] A wearable monitoring system for at-home stroke rehabilitation exercises: A preliminary study
Stroke is a leading cause of death and disabilities in adults, and the majority of its survivors suffer from upper extremity paresis . There is scientific evidence that repetitive rehabilitation exercises and training could improve motor abilities as a result of motor learning processes . Among many, a reaching movement is a fundamental component of daily movement that requires the coordination of multiple upper extremity segments . It is shown that repetitive reaching exercises improve the smoothness, precision, and speed of arm movements . To continue to improve and to sustain motor function, it is clinically important that patients continue to engage in rehabilitation exercises even outside the clinical settings , which emphasizes the importance of the home-based therapy.
Efficacy and feasibility of home-based training of individuals with homonymous visual field defects.
…Findings suggest that home-based compensatory training is an inexpensive accessible rehabilitation option for individuals with HVFDs, which can result in objective benefits in searching and reading, as well as improving quality of life…
