Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

This study provides a neurobiological basis for using low-level wrist vibration in upper-extremity sensorimotor rehabilitation and suggests that vibration may complement occupational therapy by providing patients with enhanced sensory experience during therapy for better sensorimotor outcomes.
