Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

A literature review was completed to examine the efficacy of everyday technology as a treatment modality to improve upper-extremity motor control and motivation for people recovering from stroke. The evidence was promising in support of the use of everyday technology with this population, as indicated by client and clinician reports of satisfaction, motivation, and engagement in poststroke rehabilitation, as well as increased upper-extremity motor control.
