Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Current evidence on robot-assisted therapy for improved use of a paretic upper extremity during everyday activities is limited. This study used semistructured interviews to investigate participants’ experiences with a novel cognitive-strategy-based protocol for individuals who had a stroke in order to gain a better understanding of how motor skills trained through robot-assisted therapy transferred to paretic upper-extremity use during daily occupational tasks.
