Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Music therapy has been demonstrated to improve poststroke motor performance. Our preliminary data from a three-week home-based music training suggest that the incorporation of mobile-health technology with piano therapy may provide an effective, acceptable, and motivating in-home training for stroke survivors to regain their motor capability. This research is currently in progress and recruiting more participants to obtain a solid conclusion.
