Abstract

Functional recovery of the upper limb is poor and as many as 50% of stroke survivors still have impairments at 6 months post stroke, despite rehabilitation efforts. With the move towards early supported discharge and community-based rehabilitation, novel solutions are needed to deliver the amount of quality therapy that is required for optimum recovery. We propose a rehabilitation aid that provides patients with augmented visual feedback of their motor performance during task orientated upper limb therapy with the aim of facilitating motor relearning and maximising patients functional outcomes.
