Regaining adequate hand function for participation is a challenge for many stroke survivors. Eleven participants completed 12 grasp, transport, and release training sessions with a user-driven hand robot that provides active-assist for finger extension. Mean gain of 2.63 points (P = .03) on the Fugl-Meyer was observed, with most gains in the distal subscale (2.27 points, P < .001). This intervention is a promising adjunct to conventional therapy to promote typical grasp patterns and functional use.
