Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

This was a preliminary study of the relationship between efficiency of arm movements (smoothness and directness) and self-reported hand use. Results using regression analyses indicate that directness of movement during reaching tasks is significantly related to self-reported hand use after stroke.
