Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

An individual may face many challenges to recovery after stroke, particularly with regaining use of their upper extremity. Although repetitive task-oriented training is considered an optimal intervention in stroke rehabilitation, there is limited research using this type of treatment in a virtual context. The purpose of the study was to provide two virtual-reality interventions over four weeks to adults who were poststroke and measure their change in function in their affected upper extremity.
