Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Weakness of the affected UE is common poststroke. However, it is important to be aware that the less-affected UE is also mildly affected poststroke. In this longitudinal study, we revealed that the motor and functional ability of the less-affected UE improved significantly during the first six months poststroke. The impact of this UE on bilateral functioning needs to be further investigated.
