Imperceptible vibratory stimulation of the wrist was evaluated as an adjunct to poststroke upper-extremity rehabilitation. Using stimulation during six-week task-practice therapy was feasible and safe. Promising improvement in function was retained at one-month follow-up. The improvement was greater than those reported in literature with similar therapy. This result encourages a large randomized controlled trial to examine the efficacy of using the stimulation during therapy in improving outcomes.
