Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Mental imagery training combined with EMG-NMES (MIT EMG-NMES) and EMG-NMES are beneficial to improving upper-limb motor function and activities of daily living in patients with chronic stroke. These findings indicate that the choice of the intervention depends on the patient’s condition. In case of MIT EMG-NMES, patients should be able to imagine the movement of the affected body, especially through performance memory, and have a certain level of cognitive function.
