Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

In this proof-of-concept study, we tested the feasibility of using a standardized measurement framework to inform a stroke rehabilitation program design in which person ability and task difficulty were matched and progressed over nine therapy sessions. Results indicate improved upper-extremity motor skills.
