Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Stroke-induced arm weakness is a leading cause of worldwide disability. OT practitioners commonly employ this modality, but it is unclear which type of electrical stimulation works best for people with stroke-induced weakness. This study compared the efficacy of three types of electrical stimulation for people zero to six months poststroke. We found that all three types of stimulation worked equally well.
