Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Tasks requiring intra- and interlimb coordination (ILC) can be difficult for persons with hemiparesis. Clinical tools are often not sensitive to small changes in ILC that can occur with recovery or rehabilitation. Our goal is to develop a quantitative measure of upper-extremity ILC and validate it against clinical tools. Future implementation of this sensor-based system would allow OTs to better quantify ILC in the community and home settings.
