#1 Technology for Physical and Occupational therapists.

Enjoy the convenience and flexibility of treating your patients remotely with the state of the art MediTouch systems through TeleRehabilitation. TeleRehabilitation sessions enable the therapist to grade the intensity of treatment activities through remote access to their patient’s computer.

Patients are highly motivated by the visual biofeedback they receive. The challenging yet fun customized rehabilitation activities encourage full participation yielding noticeable improvements in range of motion, motor control and functional movements.

[ARTICLE] Effect of spatial target reaching training based on visual biofeedback on the upper extremity function of hemiplegic stroke patients – Full Text PDF


[Purpose] The aim of this study was to determine the effect of spatial target reaching training (TRT)
based on visual biofeedback (VB) on the upper extremity (UE) function of hemiplegic subjects.

[Subjects and Methods] Forty subjects between six and eighteen months post-stroke were enrolled in this study. They were randomly allocated to an experimental group (EG, n=20) and a control group (CG, n=20). All subjects received an hour of routine therapy for stroke three times a week for four weeks. Subjects in EG received additional spatial TRT based on VB using a 2-dimensional motion capture analysis system. Both groups were tested at pre and post-intervention. The motor function of each subject’s UE was assessed using the Fugl-Meyer (FM) test of UE and the Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT). The reaching speed, angle and maximum reach distance were recorded using the motion capture analysis system. The experimental data were analyzed using the paired and independent t-tests.

[Results] The mean change scores of the FM Test of UE and WMFT show there was significantly more improvement at postintervention in EG than in CG. Also, the speed and angle reached showed significantly more increase in the EG
compared with the CG.

[Conclusions] The findings indicate that UE motor recovery of hemiplegic stroke patients
can be enhanced through the use of TRT based on VB.
